Conservative? – Some of our “conservative” lawmakers in Topeka are not being conservative at all. They want to regulate everything they can think of in our lives. One bill would breach the doctor-patient relationship by gagging a physician’s right to ask a patient if he or she has a gun in the house. When it comes to regulating strip clubs, some imaginative Kansas lawmakers want to control “various levels of undress.” A bill on climate science would tell teachers how to do their jobs. One benighted senator wanted to prohibit county health departments from seeking national certification. Fortunately he has backed off. If this is the new, libertarian conservatism that prevailed in the elections of November 2012, it’s awfully hard to recognize.
