NICK J. RAHALL II
ELECT NATALIE TENNANT
Yeah, we know what a huge disappointment Joe Manchin, III has become since becoming a U.S. Senator and trying to stand in the same place as the great historic & legendary Senator Robert C. Byrd, Jr. – but this time around, maybe we can get a chance to elect a Real West Virginia Senator again with the current Secretary of State, NATALIE TENNANT! As we all know, Manchin ran for governor for more than 16 years before finally winning, and all the while he was being funded by the former Massey Coal Company to the point of receiving in excess of $50-Million in ‘campaign contributions’ from that Special Interest! So is it any wonder that Manchin SOLD OUT the Citizens of West Virginia and voted with the ‘Radical Republicans’ to build the XL-Pipeline from Canada to Texas to transport the DIRTIEST-TOXIC-TARSANDS known to mankind? Nope, Manchin has always FAILED to place THE COMMON GOOD BEFORE SELF OR ANY SPECIAL INTERESTS! Manchin has always promoted the self-interests of Joe Manchin before ‘We-The-People’!
But not so for current CONGRESSMAN NICK RAHALL, II &
Secretary of State NATALIE TENNANT – both have consistently & regularly always put THE COMMON GOOD BEFORE SELF OR ANY SPECIAL INTERESTS! When Congressman Rahall, II, held congressional district meetings prior to the passage of the ‘Affordable Care Act’ that overhauled a national medical insurance program – NICK RAHALL, II, wanted UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE for everyone on the same order as that afforded to those in Congress and others in the federal government – but it was blocked by the Congressional Republicans who were backed by the giant insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, and SPECIAL INTERESTS who always put PROFITS before PRINCIPLES – and as a direct & proximate result, the ‘Affordable Care Act’ that we now have is patterned after the very same legislation passed in the State of Massachusetts under former Republican Governor Mitt Romney. So we as a people got stuck with ‘Republican-leftover-legislation’ instead of UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE as provided throughout the world by the European Union, Cuba, Venezuela, other Central & South American countries, and throughout Asia, etc.
In America, the Corporate-Special Interests now have the political-power by being able to buy-up any politicians they virtually want since BILLIONAIRES CAN SPEND AS MUCH MONEY AS THEY WANT TO INFLUENCE & BUY POLITICAL CAMPAIGNS! If this wicked concept is not changed – then America will become a ‘CORPORATE FASCIST’ country by definition! If that happens, history tells us THAT will spark a Revolution and the ‘corporate fascists’ will be shot-out-of-power – as done by Our Founding Fathers against King George III of England, and as done in Mexico when foreign corporations seized control of all businesses at the turn of the last Century! The Mexicans will PROUDLY show you the walls in every village where the ‘Firing-Squads’ left their bullets!
On a national scale, the so-called ‘Tea Party’ radicals are financed by the Billionaire Koch-Brothers and other low-life-billionaires who want ONLY PROFITS and no Social Justice or social programs or protection for the Common Citizens! And what happens when someone is ‘laid-off’ or ‘fired’ from Wal-Mart & such? Do they get ‘unemployment-benefits’? NO! And while working for Wal-Mart, do the ‘minimum-wage-employees’ get any kind of Health Benefits, or retirement Pensions! NO! And can they receive any type of food-assistance nowadays? NO! What about Medicaid? NO! So exactly what will the current work-force in America do when all the SAFETY-NETS are taken away – and then they get replaced by younger, dumber & cheaper after age 40? We as a nation are going backwards into FEUDALISM as it was 150-years ago – with the ‘company-stores’ – before workers established ‘Social Service Societies’ to care for injured workers & their families that later became ORGANIZED LABOR UNIONS! It’s the UNIONS THAT BUILT THE MIDDLECLASS IN AMERICA – NO ONE ELSE!
NICK RAHALL, II, now has great Leadership & Seniority in Congress, just as did the late Senator Robert C. Byrd, Jr., and therefore Rahall can do a lot MORE GOOD for the people of West Virginia than if he were first being elected. And a look at the congressional record for Rahall will show that he has consistently VOTED FOR WEST VIRGINIA by opposing the giving of ‘foreign-aid’ & military ‘war-materiel’ to certain foreign countries and war-mongers who keep begging for American support & then stirring up trouble in order to drag the USA into more wars!
Because Rahall has consistently worked for us Common Citizens – in the face of Special Interests – Rahall has become a TARGET of the SPECIAL INTERESTS that want to replace him with one of their ‘puppets’ & ‘corporate-whores’! So let’s keep Rahall working for us!
EACH OF US CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE BY ELECTING & RE-ELECTING MORAL & RIGHTEOUS PERSONS TO PUBLIC OFFICE!
THIS TIME…there’s no excuse…
IT’S YOUR CHOICE…
