It’s amazing how our coal industry is constantly under attack by the socialists. In 2008 in the presidential campaign Obama actually came right out and said that he was going to make it a lot harder for the coal industry with higher taxes and more regulations for the industry to survive.
Lets have a small refresher as to how good of a natural resource coal is and how good it’s for the U.S. economy. Coal is such an abundant domestic resource it provides an affordable and reliable source of electricity for American families, businesses and neighborhoods. High grade coal is also necessary for steel-making. America’s coal reserve exceeds that of any other country in the world. Coal is economical and cost efficient without government subsidies.
According to a study by PricewaterhouseCoopers, based on U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis data, America’s domestic coal mining industry was responsible for 154,000 direct jobs and over 400,000 indirect jobs in 2008.”
“Finally, coal and coal by-products are used in the production of numerous goods and materials we all use every day. In many respects, coal is the backbone of the American economy.”
Why would these socialists want to destroy this God given resource given to America? It seems by her own words that Hillary Clinton has been given the baton by Obama to carry out his destruction of the coal industry and it’s beholding on any candidate running against this socialist to talk up the coal industry. Some say that Hillary is saying this to keep on the left side to match a declared socialist in Bernie Sanders but I believe Hillary means every word of what she is saying being as Obama was a student of Saul Alinsky.
The following was posted by Jazz Shaw, published by Hot Air News: “I’m the only candidate which has a policy about how to bring economic opportunity using clean renewable energy as the key into coal country. Because we’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business, right Tim? ”
“If I weren’t already laughing so hard I’d be agreeing with Alex Griswold (at the link above) who asked what Clinton could possibly have been thinking. This is a classic Washington, DC gaffe, where a smidgen of truth slips out at an inopportune moment. It’s particularly brilliant as a GOP advertisement this fall because from her own lips we hear her say that she’s not just going to put the mining companies out of business, but the miners themselves.”
This is not funny for the miners who have suffered the last seven years from this socialist president of ours to have to hear it again from another candidate running for the presidency. This is insanity at it’s worst to want to get rid of one of our biggest resource the other being oil. The American people must come to grips that these socialists are out to ruin this great country of ours it being taking away our religions, our guns, our free speech our Constitution and not allowing us to produce coal and oil, two huge God given resources. It’s up to We The People, it’s now in our hands, the presidency is only a few months away. May God be with us to elect a conservative, a constitutionalist to continue the wishes of our Forefathers.
