Then perhaps you would like to explain my "delusion" of a conservative super-majority in Topeka. Please enlighten me how a dead party has gained this kind of status. Make up your own facts.

Everyone here needs just a wee bit of perspective. In case you didn't know it, Lawrence Kansas is a tiny raft of Blue amid a vast ocean of Red. Do you Blue Rafters really believe that you few are the smartest folks in the state?

You see, the problem with the "Blue Rafters" is that they used to have several oars, and could move the Party as a team. But over the last 20 years they allowed the radical Left to strip all but one oar away from the rest of the Party. So while the "Blue Raft" spins around in circles, and is basically irrelevant, the grassroots of the GOP have spread and grown in unity. The Little Blue Raft is now realizing some opposition as the undertow current is carrying the Kansas GOP to more conservative principles, thanks in part to folks like Ms. Rea, all over the state of Kansas.

So I would simply and humbly submit that there is a party which is in trouble. But it doesn't appear to be the GOP. Perhaps a little introspection, hmmh?

For a "dead party" the GOP seems to be creating quite a stir in the Dem stronghold of Kansas!

I will answer it.

Arabic " الله " is "Allah". Hebrew " יהוה" or "God" from Tanakh (Bible) is pronounced "YHVH" in Hebrew, "Yahveh" or simply "Hashem" (The Name). To clear the confusion this statement would be more correct, "There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the messenger of Allah" But reading the respective scriptures, (Torah and Quran) one will ascertain that Allah and YHVH are not the same. So while Muhammad may be the messenger of Allah, he is not the messenger of God.

I guess if guys like Brownback make you sick, reading the Founding Fathers would make you mortally ill. The Declaration of Independence refers to The Diety several times.

Thomas Jefferson, held up by many to be a Deist, and a favorite of modern lefties said, "Can the liberties of a nation be secure, when we have removed the conviction that these liberties are the gift of God?” And again, “Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and that His justice cannot sleep forever."

Or perhaps this excerpt from Harvard University's "Rules and Precepts" adopted in 1646, "Every student shall consider the main end of his life and studies to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life."

Or maybe even the great Abraham Lincoln, first Republican President of the United States, in referring to the Bible, "All the good from the Savior of the world is communicated through this Book; but for the Book we could not know right from wrong. All the things desirable to man are contained in it."

There are more, but I'll spare you the discomfort of historical "radical Republican" propaganda that was spouted by those great visionaries. Shall I call 911 for you?

You mean like "knuckledraggers", "moron", "nutcases", "right-wing whackos", "dingbats", and "idiots"? These names are standard fare on this thread, everyone of which is used by your comrades. I use a clinical term like "sociopathic" to describe Tomatogrower's comment behavior and it's off limits. Oh, I see how this works. I must admit I am a newcomer to LJW. Please excuse my antiquated view. I now understand that only liberals can use ungracious adjectives against their political opponents. I am beginning to realize why Conservatives have stayed underground for so long in this tolerant, multicultural, and pluralistic town.

Really, I think the webmaster should put Sychophant's comment back up so all can see what he is. (Insert your own adjective here)

Your point is well taken, nevertheless the conservatives won big in Kansas, and self-perceived erudite's such as Sycho and Tomato and others who take an elitist view are overlooking the elephant in the room. (pun intended) You live in a Republican state; on a small raft of blue in a sea of red. Yet your colleagues rant as though a small minority of people have mounted a military coup and are coming to eat their children.

Let's face it, hyperbole abounds on both sides; a result of polarization, which occurs when one side moves farther away, causing the opposition to do the same in order to counter. What you are witnessing here is simple reaction to a steady movement to the Left (by DNC and Rebub leadership) for the last 40 years.

Conservatives by definition are by nature, and have been, reluctant to enter the activist world of politics. They used to be called the "Silent Majority" for this reason. But they finally have realized if they don't become active and get involved, their point of view will not be heard at all and living according to someone else's ideology.

I see a lot of venom on here directed toward the "Christian Right". Let me remind anyone interested that without the Christian Right you would still be subject to the British Crown. Ever hear of the "Black Robed Brigade"? These preachers were targeted by the British in colonial America because they were "preaching politics from the pulpit" inspiring the independence movement.

The same goes for the abolitionist movement which would never have happened without those pesky preachers meddling in politics speaking out against slavery! The social slide of American culture and politics into the immoral gutter has not been a result of the Christian Right meddling in politics, rather the result of all those noisy preachers going on sabbatical for the previous 30-40 years.

No, the "Silent Majority" will be silent no longer. As President Obama so famously said after his inauguration: "Elections have consequences..." Kansas is not the only state where Conservatives were elected into the majority.

And don't worry, we won't eat your children and kick your dogs. Your children may even grow up to be Republicans! ;-)
