Mountaineers are Always Free, and Governor Jim Justice Freely Chose Republican

Long serving West Virginia Governor Jim Justice plans to switch parties from the Democratic to Republican party at a rally with President Trump today.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Statement from <a href="">@WVGOP</a> on Justice switching parties <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Paige Lavender (@paigelav) <a href="">August 3, 2017</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>

Justice's plans to switch were confirmed to by a Democratic Party official with knowledge of his intentions. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the decision before the announcement.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Governor Jim Justice of West Virginia is switching from Democrat to Republican at tonight&#39;s Trump Rally!</p>&mdash; Ryan Fournier (@RyanAFournier) <a href="">August 3, 2017</a></blockquote>

On the campaign trail President Trump promised throughout the course that he would resurrect the struggling coal industry that has declined amid changing energy markets, leaving many West Virginia communities devastated.

That's something President Trump has focused on in recent months meeting with the industry's best and brightest companies to reduce regulations and restore the once great Coal Community to its historic presence as an American vanguard.

The industry and many of its workers have blamed the decline mostly on former President Barack Obama and his environmental policies which damaged companies and their employees chances for growth.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Jim Justice switching to GOP makes sense:<br><br>-Trump won WV by 42 %<br>-Was GOP in 2015<br>-Approval ratings sliding <br>-Bonus: bad for Manchin</p>&mdash; Garrett Ventry (@GarrettVentry) <a href="">August 3, 2017</a></blockquote>

With Justice's new defection, it leaves an already in shambles party of Democrats with just 15 governors among 50 states, showing that America is now leaning heavily Conservative.

In West Virginia, his transition to the right is another devastating blow for the Democrats in a state they once ran without opposition.

United States Senator Joe Manchin and State Treasurer John Perdue will now be the only remaining statewide elected Democrats to exist as an extreme minority.

Manchin is up for reelection in 2018, one of 10 Democratic senators running for seats in the states which President Trump won, a dynamic that gives Democrats an uphill path to reclaiming a Senate majority, which is incredibly unlikely for them to achieve.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Mannington was hit hard by flooding. There is a lot of work to do but we will bounce back bc that&#39;s what West Virginians do! <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Governor Jim Justice (@WVGovernor) <a href="">July 30, 2017</a></blockquote>

Most recently Jim Justice has been dealing with the flood cleanup efforts in his state, something that President Donald Trump has promised to assist in as the region was drastically overwhelmed by the damages.

Of course he is, after all he's swapped sides for a 2 bit realtor, rapist, liar, etc. Why how could I think anything else, and as for my trashy thoughts… I understand, you wouldn't want me to dirty up your nice racism, facism, sexism, etc. Heaven forfend that someone like me could dirty up a shite dedicated to sucking Trump's dick, and just 'happened' to open in time to kiss arse.

Interesting that Jim 'I'm not a money whore' Justice just happens to own a load of mines that he'll get more money from if the EPA regs get killed and he can dump the shit from his mines wherever he feels like it. I'm sure you won't mind your kids dying from fucking 'blacklung', etc because of the burn off but hey as long as he gets another billion while your grandkids are sucking an oxy bottle the parents can barely afford, yeah he's real fine. Get your facts right asshole, in fact, get a fucking education. Stupid cunt.
