Coal good for America
Approaching Easter, I think of the commercial about a product that is only available during this time of year. It essentially says “when the Easter Bunny is gone, this product is also gone.” Something like government incentives and tax breaks for the development of alternative energy sources. For when the incentives are gone, so are the new energy projects.
This has been proven in Europe, according to a recent John Stossel report, and it is subject to happen here, too.
Yet, President Obama stated March 30 “None of this (alternative energy projects) would have happened without government support.”
In the same speech, Obama said, “The situation in Japan leads us to ask questions about our energy sources.”
Per nuclear, he is correct in this assessment. But he will not acknowledge that almost half of this country’s electricity is produced from coal. There is no question about that. And there is no question that this electricity is produced from coal without government subsidies. American ingenuity, through people like The News-Enterprise readers, and electricity produced from coal helped to make this country what it is today. Coal is good for America, no question about it.

As an active member of the Barren County Patriots, a local Tea Party group, a former county judge-executive and a leader for the Republican Party during several campaigns including Ronald Reagan and Rand Paul, my conservative credentials are bona fide as are my Tea Party credentials.
In the May primary, I endorse David Williams-Richie Farmer without qualification or equivocation.
Williams is a wealth of knowledge of the operations of state government with the necessary experience to take Kentucky into a bright future.
Williams is the leader of the Republican Senate, which one must acknowledge as the only “idea factory” in Kentucky government today. The opposite party is bogged down in the politics of the past. It offers no vision, and it offers no solutions. Its failures are the failures of its leadership; first among those is the present Governor.
Williams is leading us to a future that Tea Party Patriots want. We can only accomplish our goal of smaller government that’s more responsive to our needs with Williams as our governor. With Richie Farmer at his side, he can bring Kentucky out of the past and into its brightest future.
Let none challenge the conservative credentials of David Williams. Let none criticize his abilities nor his experience for we need him right now as we have never needed another.
