The original Democratic Party is the oldest political party in the US. Andrew Jackson is considered the founder. The party has been on both sides of many issues just as the Republican Party. The Democratic Party is much more aligned with the issues of the people versus the Republican Party that aligns itself with business and the affluent. FDR is considered the father of today's Democratic Party. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, civil rights, looking out for the poor and down trodden, reproductive freedom and environmental issues are championed by the Democratic Party. FDR led America to victory in WWII crushing Japan and Nazi Germany. Many consider the Dems as the party of the 99% since the Republican Party represents the rich and Wall Street bankers and money managers.

Ferns will be called a RINO and will be attacked by the extremists so his days are numbered. Many true blue democrats are moving to the Mountain Party b/c many of WV democratic leaders are really republican light.

>More Republican gains would be good news for West Virginians, because they would move the state toward a true two-party system of government. For decades, Democrats have been in control of the Legislature and sometimes the Governor's Mansion.<

Democratic control = one party system?

Cluelessly PRICELESS journalism!

I'm off to read up on The GOPeer WV Household Job Creator Act of 2014.

A 75% tax rebate on $7hr wages paid to WV-born household servants hired as housecleaners, cooks, butlers,nursemaids, gardeners, pool boys, and car detailers.

Because tax breaks for the affluent are THE job creating magic!

"Democrat Party" is a political epithet used in the United States for the Democratic Party. The term has been used in negative or hostile fashion by conservative commentators and members of the Republican Party in party platforms, partisan speeches and press releases since 1940"

But Ferns will lose for Senate and a Democrat will take his House seat.
