What's Wrong Here? Are you concerned about the direction the country and our state are headed? Does the growing debt, expanding gov- emment, and disregard for constitutional principles bother you? Do you wonder why West Virginia seems always I st in things that are bad (poverty, obesity) and last in things that are good (education, income)? Did you know that one political party has controlled the WV legislature since 1932, and that 800,000 West Virginians have left our state in search of opportunity else- where since? Call to Action 80 years of one party rule hasn't worked, and 81 years won't work either. It's time for new leadership, not the same failed poli- cies that have been driving businesses and people away. We need to be voting for the future of our children and grandchildren, not a po- litical party or a career politician. "Let's get to work on building a better future."
