    I’m curious. Why do Republicans see Appalachia as a role model for the rest of America.

    Five of the 10 poorest counties in the country are in Kentucky and West Virginia, two of the whitest states in the entire country.

    Appalachia is the center of the opioid crisis.

    Appalachia has terrible problems with unemployment and a lack of education.

    Huge parts of Appalachia are terribly polluted.

    There are white people in Appalachia without healthcare, electricity, or running water Who live off of food stamps and welfare.

    Nearly all of the upper GOP leadership from Appalachia are multimillionaires when many of their constituents live below the poverty line.

    Most of Appalachia has been in control of white conservatives since the Civil War. If Republicans are so good at leadership and running the country, what do they have to point at as examples of their leadership skills?

    Anyone?

    In fact, republican president and one of the greatest, Dwight D Eisenhower, warned the country against the military industrial complex. And who are Trump and the Republican shoveling money to as fast as they can? The military industrial complex.

    I agree. The USSR was a fucking piece of shit. And the head of their intelligence agency is now the head of Russia. The same guy who is trumps boss.

    You’ll have to excuse me if I find your concern for us folks here Appalachia to be disingenuous horseshit.

    With most of your ilk, butthurt ebbs and flows. You are unfortunately an exception. Five more years of this will take its toll, surely.
