Apparently, most of those elected to represent their districts have no idea what all the constituents want. They seem to vote their own personal beliefs. Should somebody remind them there were elected to represent everyone, not just their special interests?

So we should do away with political parties, and politicians should just do what’s right for the country? Some people believe they should be given things by government, and others think everyone should attempt to carry their own weight. Where’s the automatic middle ground that’s right for the country?

The United States should start manufacturing minimal and sturdy housing camps based on underground insulation. Plant gardens and livestock close by and get people working. Build a warehouse and get people manufacturing something and rebuilding America. People need some direction now.

Will our new city buses be equipped with food lockers so the passengers can survive their encounters with our vast food deserts? Government needs to intervene to cover every possible thing that can happen. What if they get stopped at a red light?

Perhaps some energetic reporter will take a look at all the expenses listed in the nondepartmental section of the city of Wichita’s proposed budget for 2015. Cut, cut, cut.

It is our hope that President Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi remain in office for their full terms. Every day they remain there brings the Democrat Party one day closer to its demise, and along with the party go its willful, planned and focused efforts to destroy the United States.

Obama’s foreign policy problem is not that he dropped the ball. The real problem is that he had none to drop. Nor did nervous Neville Chamberlain in 1939.

President Obama is the Democratic Party’s Richard Nixon.

This country was founded with three branches of government operating under rules of law. This is something Obama understands but refuses to abide by.

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl will never be convicted of desertion during Obama’s tenure, because that will make him look like a fool for trading away five Taliban chieftains for Bergdahl.

As a Paul Davis supporter, I want to see Rick Santorum come to Kansas every day to campaign for our current governor. I’ll even pay his plane fare.

Now even the Republicans are endorsing Paul Davis for governor. Maybe there’s some hope for Kansas after all.

The Eagle editorial board has been blasting Gov. Sam Brownback for the past three years. I’m not sure how it is going to grant equal time against Davis in the next three months.

If the state GOP wants to maintain residence in Cedar Crest, it will nominate someone other than Brownback.

A recent Brownback spokesman said Kansas families had received $84 million in property tax relief. I must have been missed. My property taxes have only increased.
