The hard-working coal miners of the Century Mine in Beallsville, Ohio deserve to have their say.
The local media have played their usual role as a mouthpiece of the Obama campaign by accusing the Murray Energy Corporation of coercing its workers to attend a rally for Mitt Romney. The Obama campaign took the opportunity to slander both Romney and these coal miners by accusing them of being props for the Romney campaign.
To prove them wrong, the miners have gathered together to hold a press conference, to send a letter to Obama, and to make this video. They insist that they attended the Romney rally voluntarily because their jobs will be in peril as long as Obama is in office.
Please help this video go viral by sending it along to everyone.
My mother’s father was a coal miner who worked in many different mines in Ohio and West Virginia. His work was arduous and extremely dangerous, but he took pride in making an honest living and supporting his family. Never would he have tolerated anyone putting words into his mouth.

Coal miners tell Obama to stop the absolute lies in TV ad accusing miners of being props at rally for Romney. Miners held a press conference to release a letter signed by over 500 miners saying they were not forced to attend Romney event. They wanted to attend because their is a war on coal and Obama is leading it. If Obama is re-elected he will put us all out of work permanently.
