coal is only dying because the Obama adminstration and democrats in general have been trying to kill it. we have an abundance of coal and coal is the cheapest form of energy, which helps consumers save money.

you are underscoring my point, liberals will kill off the industry in a national popular vote election. trump's election was partly a backlash to democrat policies on the keystone pipeline, fracking, drilling for oil, and coal.

Coal is dying because the demand for coal worldwide has declined.

Decline of Coal Demand Is 'Irreversible'

I have family in Columbia sc. There 5 bedroom house on an acre with a pool in the backyard cost 250K, and they live in city limits. I got friends there too. My one friend lives in a 1 bedroom apartment and pays $400 a month and is in walking distance of most of his needs. Both have ZERo debt. No one owns them, they are free. How many regular people in Boston who are not trust find babies can say the same?

that decline is directly due to liberal enviromental policies that are anti-coal. this seems obvious. the people in the energy industry don't agree with you. trump's going to reverse all of that.

What actually happens is that candidates tend to only focus on the 12 swing states (especially Florida and Ohio) and ignore everywhere else

so obama voters in states he didn't need to campaign in have been ignored the past 8 years? he has high approval numbers in polls, if you still trust polls.

Funnily enough, Obamacare was mostly based on Romneycare, a system which was introduced in Massachusetts when Mitt Romney was governor

Mmmkay.

America needs to split up into different nations. And that's not necessarily because of the result of the most recent election. It's because different parts of the country have become fundamentally different from each other. This is sort of like being forced to remain in a relationship with a portly red head when you really want a svelte brunette. There's nothing wrong with breaking up.

i'm aware of that, that is partly why Romney lost. we nominated basically the only GOP in the country that was that weak on the most important issue of the 2012 cycle. Romney does have a presidential look and temperment though so you can't blame us. we went the opposite way this year and won big league that's the magic of life sometimes. you never know what is going to happen.
