Establishment or so-called moderate Republicans who attack conservatives are, and have always been, part of the problem, not the solution. They seem to have forgotten the old saying, “You have to stand for something or you’ll fall for anything.”

Only ignorant liberals believe that conservatives haven’t offered alternatives to Obamacare. Research and then speak.

The ACA is a Republican idea created by the Heritage Foundation and first put in place by a Republican governor. The only reason the GOP is against it now is purely political, because it was put in place by a Democratic president and it is working.

Until my taxes stop going into the shopping carts of moochers, no taxes will ever be “fair.”

Grover Norquist says that criticism of Gov. Sam Brownback’s tax cuts is unwarranted, and that Kansas is the “point of the spear.” The spear is on the verge of sticking Kansans where the sun doesn’t shine.

Is any voter basing their support for any candidate on mass mailing materials or robocalling? If so, let them know so they can make an appropriate list and take me off it. Candidates: Please leave my mailbox, doorknob and phones alone.

Richard Ranzau has always seemed to be more interested in what was going on in the United Nations than in Sedgwick County.

When a fast-talking politician like Mike Pompeo wants to give the federal government sole authority through the “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act,” it seems a good bet our food will be neither safe nor affordable. Should we call it “Pompeofood” or “PompeoCare”?

Where would our country’s military leadership be if every West Point grad spent the minimum active-service requirement of five years and then opted for law school and private business?

I’m sorry, but if you think Pat Roberts is a liberal, a radiologist is not the kind of doctor you need.

How many more must be killed by sick people with “machine-gun” style weapons before Pat Roberts and Todd Tiahrt change their position? They vote against any kind of gun control. They are rated “A” by the NRA, indicating their pro-gun loyalty. Please don’t give them your vote.

More than 83,000 Kansans currently have active concealed-carry permits. The lack of problems proves the system works.
