It's time for West Virginians to open their eyes. It's not about Democrat versus Republican any more. Our country is in crisis, our liberties are being eroded daily by an out-of-control federal government violating the Constitution at every turn.
Numerous state legislatures are beginning to assert the rightful remedy: nullification. These states are passing laws preserving freedoms of their citizens. Meanwhile, the West Virginia Legislature is busy passing more laws to infringe on your liberty.
Several bills were introduced this session by liberty-minded Delegates Folk, Householder, Kump and Nelson that would have preserved West Virginian's liberties, but they haven't been put on the agenda because West Virginians keep putting the wrong people in office. It's time for West Virginians to vote based on which candidate is going to fight for your liberty rather than whether or not they have an R or a D beside their name.
I personally will not vote for any person that has voted to take away my freedom. I don't care which party they are in. It's time for West Virginia to live up to the motto, "Montani semper liberi -- Mountaineers are always free"

Sell the routers to keep Book Festival
I was shocked and appalled that the Kanawha County Public Library directors decided to cancel this year's Book Festival. This festival is a highlight for me every year. I get to talk to local authors whom I would have never had a chance to meet. I have found local authors that I truly enjoy.
It sickens me that no one seems to care about books or reading anymore. I read that they are literally begging people to donate to get a new library, which I think we all agree that we need. The state can waste money on fiber optic routers for libraries that they cannot even use. There's your $3 million that you lost. Sell those routers and keep the festival going.
