I want a candidate who will promote railroad service for Wichita. It is a safe and enjoyable way to travel.


There is nothing to be gained in trying to debate anyone who truly believes that our nation’s debts and deficits have been reduced under the leadership of President Obama.


Why do people get jailed for lying to the IRS on their taxes, yet the IRS can lie through its teeth and expect no penalty?


Mr. President: After hating tea partiers, conservatives, Republicans, our laws and our Constitution and dividing our country with minority issues, you now want to abandon hate?


In Kansas City, Obama said he is working for those who are working hard to feed their families and put a roof over their heads. The problem is that he is doing it by encouraging them to take government handouts (my taxes), instead of doing it themselves, as I did.


If you really think about it, President Obama has positioned himself to be virtually unimpeachable, as his No. 2 is probably the only person in the country who would do more damage than he has.


I hope the House Republicans go full steam ahead with their lawsuit against President Obama and their plans to impeach him. It would be the best thing to happen to the Democratic Party since the president’s re-election.

So, the Wall Street Journal editorial board is supporting Sam Brownback. What else would you expect from a newspaper owned by Rupert Murdoch, owner and operator of the Fox News channel?


If you are unhappy with the way the elected officials are running the country, then vote in all new people. Why would somebody spend millions to keep their job when their job pays in the thousands?


Now that everyone has seen what damage happens with Democrat policies, why would anyone vote for a Democrat for governor, secretary of state, senator, representative or president?


“An eye for an eye” doesn’t make everyone blind unless you’re a repeat offender. I think it makes us even.


Those who abhor the Carr reversal see the court as activist and fail to recognize that the judicial system has requirements for review for proper application of law, despite the nature of the crime.


There’s plenty of justice left in Kansas, in the form of 14,205 concealed-carry guns strapped and holstered to us.
