    That's the bigger question.

    Does anyone know how many people whom are on the Affordable Care Act and consider themselves conservative or just voted for Trump?
    Why would you vote against your interest? Your pride is more important then your health? SMH wake up GOP.

    I could give two flying ****s what people believe that the founders "wanted." They took two tries to give us an imperfect system that led to a Civil War, and it is up to us to make the best of that system and improve it where we can.

    This video explains a lot...



    You know a town is dying when the only Walmart closes.

    It's sad what happened to the poor people in coal country...but I don't think their jobs are coming back no matter what Trump promised them. At least Clinton had a viable plan to help replace coal jobs with retraining programs and business incentives for clean energy jobs...and now they don't even have that. Sad.

    But coal isn't the first industry to lose jobs to newer technology and industrialization and it probably won't be the last. Nothing stays the same forever.

    is that why the group with the least amount of education and has the lowest test scores vote Democrat at rate of 90% or more?
