    But we are seem to want a small federal government with low taxes, while being ok with a state government that is a bit more active.  Nationally, we're conservative on abortion and gay marriage, but they're non-factors in state politics. We're kind of a conservative-populist state with a state Democratic party that isn't really "liberal" in the way that conservatives use the word as an epithet. Our state Democrats also generally are strong supporters of the Coal industry, which is incredibly strong in the Eastern half of the state, while the state sees the national Democratic party as an enemy to coal.
