One small vote for president, one giant leap for socialism. Goodbye, freedom. It was fun while it lasted for more than 230 years.


The U.S. Constitution is now a worthless piece of paper.


The problems that we face today are there because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by the people who vote for a living.


No more freeloaders. Everybody pays something. Obamacare is the law of the land. Get over it.


Please call and e-mail your U.S. senators and representatives and demand that they fix the debt problem in a balanced manner before their hyperpartisan political philosophy ruins our 401(k)s and kills what little progress our economy is making.


It’s hard to win a national election in a democracy when your main constituency is only the top 1 percent of the population, you totally alienate 47 percent of the population, and then you make 50 percent of the rest of the population second-class citizens.


Liberals are trying to cut the heart out of this country to make it more like the failing European Union or California. So how do you compromise with someone trying to cut your heart out? How far do you let the knife go in in the name of compromise?


Welfare is up 32 percent and food stamps are up 71 percent under the leader of the Santa Claus Party.


Once again last Tuesday, the majority of American men voted for freedom and the majority of American women voted for the government to take care of them.


The Founding Fathers never intended that politicians make Congress a career. If there were ever a time for term limits, it is now. Most ethical and legal problems tend to be with senior members of Congress. Let your congressional representatives know your wish or vote them out.


Now that Mitt Romney is out of the way, Sam Brownback and Kris Kobach can get their 2016 presidential campaign fired up.


Kobach’s out-of-state trips, and focus on alleged voter “fraud,” kept him from seeing serious problems at polling sites. It’s another example of Republican blindness.


Do the Republicans in Kansas realize they have turned over the right to govern Kansas to Americans for Prosperity, the Kansas Chamber of Commerce and the special interests that back them?


The new Colorado state mascot is the “pothead.”


Good grief – how many more car lots are going to spring up around Wichita? Every time you turn around, they are building another one. Do they think the public has all kinds of money for new cars during this economic downturn?


Veterans Day is a good time to remind folks of flag etiquette. It is more patriotic to display no flag than one that is frayed, torn or tattered, regardless of your intentions.
