Mitch loves Kentucky ❤️, according to his wife anyway.
Usually, when you love some one, their life improves as a result. In the case of Mitch’s love that’s not true at all.
Our friends in Kentucky are not getting a great education, and young people are skipping it altogether. On top of that, teachers are walking out of class due to low pay. Does someone that loves you suppress you and lower your ability to improve your station in life?
Kentucky’s economy is tanking; I don’t envy what will happen next as the economy starts to contract. Kentucky is the 40th richest state in the nation. It is the 39th state in economic ratings from U.S. News. The facts aren’t looking so hot for Kentucky.
Kentucky ranks 47th in citizen health. I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want to play a country in Civilization with that ranking. I would never be able to cover the map and take out my enemies if my citizens are on the verge of dying. It might have something to do with people doing meth in increasing numbers.
Why then is Mitch McConnell getting elected?
It could have something to do with voter suppression.
It could be the 52% of people that are religious that love his judicial appointments.
I think it’s mostly because he is effective at pushing Republican policies in a predominantly Republican state.
I’ll update this post if I learn more, but for now, that’s all there is. Here’s hoping the people in Kentucky ditch Mitch in the future and pick someone that actually cares about the United States of America.
