Roger’s view from the hills: Riding fences

                                          George Bernard Shaw
If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, swims like a duck, it is a duck.  This is why I hate politics.  But there is reason to not ride a fence.  First it is uncomfortable and then it makes people think that the more preposterous the story can be made that you will fall for it and go their way.
It is no secret that I am beyond horrified with the leader of our country.  I am not enamored with those who voted for ‘hope and change’ without understanding that the hope and change was told to us all along and many just ignored it.
I have been brought to task by a few that I need to support what is going on in the White House and Washington because of who they are.  I am sorry, they do not support the oath of office that they took and our country is paying the price of corruption and turning from God and the foundations that our Republic was founded on.
I am not confident that Washington will ever change itself.  Until we have a constitutional convention and we limit the power of the thieves that we have put there, we will have to do the best with who we send up there.
So not being enamored with the status quo there have been games devised in Kansas that will seem to circumvent the vote.  If the race for senate and governor have not bothered you it should.  Even if you don’t like the incumbents.
When half truths and open games are played it should alert and bother both sides.  When your talking points have to come from the morning postings of your party you need to start being upset about being manipulated and treated like a fool.
Elections should ideally be between the best candidates available.  Yet it seems that the challengers must depend on manipulations and gamesmanship and believe that you are not smart enough to make your won decision on the merits of the candidates.
As much as I hate pushing one side or another in a losing game I will have to support the two incumbents in Senate and Governor because the alternatives don’t hit a good chord with me.  There is something wrong here.
If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and swims like a duck, it is a duck.  My advice to both parties is, can’t you get real citizen legislators to carry the party banners?
