No Matter Who Won: Dark Road Ahead for the Poor of Kentucky

Modern Kentucky gubernatorial elections are becoming exercises in frustration. Kentucky voters have sought political reform and change from most modern governors. At the end of the day, Kentucky governors in the recent past have not bettered the state's ability to cope with the future.

Many voters' day to day lives are testimonies to economic survival where usually both parents slave to work to make ends meet. Their world is becoming a bitter and frustrating existence where food and the costs of living inch upward month by month.

Add to this frustration is the feeling of helplessness in dealing with large monopolies delivering public services for electrical power, telephone services, cable TV and water.
Hidden fees and new rate structures for these services put in risk Kentuckians' ability to complete in a global marketplace.

Corporate welfare for large corporations promising to locate in Kentucky is robbing the ability of Kentucky state government to help small business and Main Street Kentucky to create new jobs or stay in business.

Kentuckians' fears have been born, in part, from the stench of public corruption where highly respected state leaders sold out to big business and special interests. The common agenda with these groups has been to make sure government gives them the best possible deal to ensure a strong bottom line for profits

The poor, the weak, the women of Kentucky have had a history of no champions in state government. They have been told that they are needed sacrifices upon the altar of economic development.

Many fear that in this climate of voter disgust and distrust of their elected leaders, apathy has put Kentucky on a dark road of political self destruction. It is feared that on this path, the rich will get richer and the middle class and poor just will barely survive from day-to-day economic hardships.

Government defined by fear and apathy will self destruct by its own inability to protect or help its citizens cope with problems. Elected leaders have a responsibility to work with good men and women in this state to forge a better future. We, as citizens, have a more powerful responsibility to keep them on this task.
