and he wants to take control of the internet, has voted for gun bans and the patriot act and tries to continue taking away freedoms of the American people in the name of security. He may have helped in some ways but he is moving toward the socialist path just like the rest of the Rockefellers.

Jay Rockefeller and Bob Byrd will indeed be missed. It is an indisputable fact that West Virginia as a whole has suffered immensely since Byrd's death. It will get worse with Rockefeller's retirement. Although it's a given that Shelley Capito will replace Rockefeller,she will not have the experience and the clout to immediately be a quick asset to WV in the Senate.

In years to come, Rockefeller will be missed. With the passing of Byrd, and now with Rockefeller leaving the Senate, West Virginia will have no senior Senators representing us.

This will need to be the main issue when West Virginians go to the polls in 2014.

Senator Rockefeller is a man who could have spent his life in a mansion but instead dedicated it to the wonderful people of our beautiful but very poor state. West Virginia is a better place because of Senator Rockefeller and his dear friend Senator Byrd. They will be Missed!
