Democrats Won’t Replace Byrd’s Seat Until 2012

In a climate that is increasingly turning Republican and a crucial seat (and vote) now empty, combined with a laundry list of liberal legislation about to come to the floor for a vote, the Democrats have decided that in their best interest there will be no special election to replace Senator KKK Byrd’s seat this year. 

Human Events explores this issue, the legality of it (apparently they are within their rights- although Republicans could force the issue) and what the future holds for the state of West Virginia.

    Additionally, I believe that the good people of West Virginia deserve representation and for the Labor Party Driven Democrats should not politisize the situation. The state Governor is a Democrat, so he could appoint any Democrat or Republican he wanted. Let the people of West Virginia vote to make the decision in a fair election.

    Maybe the Democrats can, but maybe not. I am basing this on the phrase "No Taxation without Representation." Even though the phrase, does not appear in the U.S. Constituion, it is implied. Even though the Colonists in 1770 believed they had the same rights as englishmen such as they cannot be taxed unless they have someone to represent them in Parliament. King George disagreed and taxed the hades out of those colonist by "Virtual Representation." The Colonies had been highly taxed on everything since the 1660s. Thus started the Revolutionary War for the path toward Freedom and Soverienty of the United States.
