Each vote in our county can have a global impact.?
Most of us can comprehend the notion of a drug addict resorting to theft in order to support his addiction. We secure our belongings to preclude becoming victims of those whose lives are dysfunctional. So why is it that so many people are seriously willing to let our precious environment be robbed of its value in order that the addicts of coal satisfy their cravings? To me, one of the most absurd arguments I've heard is job creation. Every method to maximize profit means paying the lowest wage possible to those who enable the addicts to acquire their substance. I believe there is no future in such jobs since coal use is declining as electric utilities shift to cheaper, less-polluting natural gas. So folks, all in favor of low-paying, no future, substance abuse related jobs, please abstain from voting. Our quality of life is at stake.
