Bridgeport levy just passed also! WHY? Because on Saturday only 5.4% showed up to even vote! It passed with a miserable 250-84 votes! Until people vote, nothing changes. People are basically lazy, useless and stupid. They don't care they say....until they're taxes come due. Oh but then these idiots that did not vote will start screaming about their higher taxes. They will get exactly what they deserve. No wonder politicians can lie their way into office so easily; it's easy pickings with ignorant citizens. Until the people 'care' nothing changes.

As a firm believer in majority rules, however, a group does not always have to "win" to make their point or send a message. With 43% of the voters voting no, it will, hopefully, send a clear message to the Upshur County BOE: there better be improvements to Upshur County's Education System or next time the results could flip!
