CIGARS AND BACK ROOMS

“THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT WE EXPERIENCE THAT
CAN BE FORGIVE BUT WE WON’T FORGET.”
Well my predictions for the Kansas elections are coming true. I hate it when I start looking smart. It brings on so much expectations.
What is it that people hate about politics? The vision of a few power brokers smoking cigars in a dark, dank backroom making the decisions for the people. This instead of the old fashion notion of one man one vote.
Some thought that this had been done away with when conventions became sideshows and did not mean much more than a drunken party. But they are still there, making decisions for you.
If anyone has read me long enough will remember that I hate both political parties. In my county though, if you are not registered as Republican you have no choice. Most of our offices do not have a Democrat run. Our primary is when we get our officials. The general is when state and national votes are taken. We also get to see who is writing in.
My prediction? Well the Democrat Party in Kansas came up with a way to weasel in candidates that normally would not get enough votes in a Red state. When there is a conservative candidate that is running on the premise that they are for President Trump, they go on the hunt.
The formula that a retired Republican will move forward as a never Trumper and support the Democrat since they are “so nice and reach across the aisle. They were so common sense when they were in office. Now they are going to support the Democrat because they are so prominent and open minded.”
It worked to elect a Democrat Governor in a Republican state. Now it is going to be a Senator. The respected Nancy Landon Kassebaum has now come out to support a Democrat. Just as the Senate, which has been the fire wall between the House and the White house is close to being lost.
Since the Dems have added ‘Socialist’ to their party lets just be honest and call them what they truly are, Communist. They have been up front about wanting to run your life; tell you what to believe; that your rights come from the government; that Mother Nature is God; and you have no right to your money.
Look how well the cities who are dominated by the Democrats are faring. They want this for you.
Nancy, go back to the ranch. I have not forgotten that you were rated as the lowest performing Senator when in office. Nice lady but please stop getting into politics. It is not the club scene in Washington anymore.
