6. I don't know anything specifically about West Virginia

but this is good news for sure.

My feeling, in general, and it has been validated by the Sanders campaign, is that, as soon as we quit running candidates who are just the lessor of two evils, as soon as we unilaterally swear off corporate donations and run on small donations and TRUTH to power, honest and sincere campaigns, we'll be shocked at how many people suddenly come around.

At least half the voters in this country see all politicians as crooks, of either party, and for the most part they're right. There's a huge untapped pool of disaffected voters who know damn well that they're voting against their own interests, but don't see the other side as any less against their own interests. Fix that, and everything changes. It transcends left and right, it's about removing corrupting money from the equation and suddenly we have real politicians representing the interests of ordinary human beings rather than multinational corporate interests.

The challenge we all face is to recognize this, stop participating in the corporate deceptions, and learn how to leverage our numbers and social media skills to defeat the massive ad buys and corporate media propaganda that prop up the phonies. It's the only game worth playing at this point, learn to defeat corporate-funded phonies with authentic candidates who will represent people rather than corporations.
