    Would they also threaten to cut the governor’s salary if he didn’t play along? I mean if they had someone in the job besides that fool Brownback. Then the entire government would consist of the legislature. Isn’t that what they want?

    ” Kansas, when are you going to take your state back? ”

    they did. What makes you think this ISN’T what they wanted? They voted for it – multiple times. THIS is what they want, because if they choose the Democrats to fix the giant mess they have self-inflicted, it means they were WRONG. And that can’t happen.

    Conservatism never fails, it can only BE FAILED. If it’s not right, it’s because there is still pockets of resistance. STAMP OUT ALL RESISTANCE, and you will SEE that the right wing economic and social ideas are the CORRECT ideas, and Kansas will become a PARADISE!!

    And if not, it’s because of partisan sabotage. Dirty hippies…

      What jackwod? You like the idea of buying politicians and letting the ultra-rich create the rules and laws?

Don’t come knocking on our (democrats) door, we have taken in too many ex-repubs as it is, I say close the door and lock the damn thing.

        No I didn’t. If I did I’d have given him/her a downvote rather than an upvote.
