1. Yes, I believe it.
Our sold-out state government officials would allow strip mining anywhere - unless it's in their own back yard.

4. The coal barons have always given West Virginia the best...
"government" their money could buy.

We've just about always been number one at being in last place on everything, because Mr' Peabody's Coal Train has always hauled away the wealth of this state.

2. Unfortunately, I Believe It
West Virginia government is nothing but a mockery of the Democratic process. Nothing more than a banana republic dictatorship with puppets for the public view. The real government is the energy companies and their money. They have paid for and own our politicians.

3. "The real government is the energy companies"
Hasn't changed much since the indians were killed out. Before it was the energy barons it was the salt barons and the slave masters.
