Letter to the editor: Electoral College purpose

all elections are determined by the person )or ideas) receiving the most votes. Congressmen, Senators, Mayors, governors, club presidents, dog catchers (well....maybe not) and any reasonable selection by persons affected by the decision. Except the most important job in the country. Why? It is time to invalidate this stupid process and declare the winner in the manner of any other selection by voters who have a say in the matter. Trump is not the winner. He is the survivor of an out dated and ridiculous system. And we will pay the price for this foolishness

Someone above posted:" The founders did not trust pure democracy. They worried that passions might lead us onto dangerous paths." Just what are we staring at RIGHT NOW?

Opinion: Kansas’ post-truth fail goes national

Every single election in the country awards the winner to be the person who gets the most votes Governor, mayor, congressman, senator, club treasurer, you name it... all get elected with the most votes. Trump did not and is as illegitimate a winner as he was a candidate of the party. But from what I see unfolding as I write it is only just beginning.. (The dumb ass called the leader of Taiwan on the phone today. A real diplomatic blunder) What next??)

Opinion: Kansas’ post-truth fail goes national

Paul, I used to listen to Rush Limbaugh back when he first appeared. He was a former sports caster for the Kansas City Royals. I thought at first that he might be someone who had something sensible for his listeners. Then he started with the "Femine Nazi crap. And the constant bashing of one particular political party with his drivel attacking those he branded as "liberals"

I repeat.......when did it become illegal or even disgusting to be a "liberal"?? I see constant blather in this forum where the term "liberal" is accorded all the negative, dishonest, ignorant traits that can be possibly imagined. Is this fair? Is this reasonable?? Most folks have opinions that are both "liberal" and "conservative" So what is the rub? Why does this disgusting opinion that you see every day from Rush Limbaugh seem so prevalent in the population? I do not think that all the folks being stabbed with this stupid label are bad citizens or even wrong. But you still see it pop up in this form with posters who cannot intelligently present their opinions without lashing out at people they do not like or agree with as "liberals"

"Liberal people in government wasting the money they have taken from the working class....the people that actually create wealth." Sooooo........just how would you finance schools, roads, infrastructure, and the many other responsibilities of good government??

You folks who want no taxes yet expect good government, just how do you propose financing the government with your stupid and ignorant rants about "wasting money"??

Just HOW do you propose to fund the necessary elements of good government?? Gimmie a good answer. An no BS about "wasting money".

Elect Republicans?? Well we have. And this article pretty much hit the mark, We have elected officials who are owned lock, stock and barrel by the billionaire Koch Industries Fascist Regime and who bow and scrap to their every whim and desire.

And now.......we are to see this on a national level. From the fool who was (not) elected President of the United States. I wonder where we will be in 4 years. Which country will declare war on the United States first?? Do you have your atom bomb shelter well stocked and in order?

By the way, no one has ever answered my question "Why does a large segment of the public think that being of a liberal mindset is illegal?? Maybe Rush Limbaugh can explain this to sensible minded people.

Opinion: Will Trump embrace new weapons?

The question should be.....Will he embrace decency, civility, and anti prejudice?

If past and recent evidence is, with his support from the Ku Kux Klan and the American Nazi Party, I think not.

He knows NOTHING about weapons, defense and national security.

The worst is yet to come. Jobs indeed!!

Kobach, without evidence, supports Trump's false claim of 'millions' of illegal votes

Kobach, without evidence, supports Trump's false claim of 'millions' of illegal votes

I have spoken in this forum on occasion about the new rise of the Forth Reich in the United States. Well folks, although most of you are sick of my waving that stupid flag, we are now in the early stages of this. The mention of Nazis and Fascists gets most people upset and all in a bind. But you are looking at it. It happened before. It is happening again. There is nothing now that can be done about the elected officials abridging the Constitution and laws of the country.

You thought Obama was bad, the bigots and racists conflated Hillary with him to defeat her in accordance with Trump's campaign against him. But what is brewing right now in the country and on the stupidity of "social" media are working diligently on an overthrow of legitimate Constitutional government in the United States. Kobach is one of the leading cheerleaders of this movement.

Adolf Hitler (remember him??) actually lost a presidential election in Germany in 1933, But as history notes, it did not stop him from becoming the worst dictator in modern history.

The Kansas State Board of Canvassers, which includes Gov. Sam Brownback, Secretary of State Kris Kob

The people of the United States of America have elected a jack ass liar, fascist idiot sex offender . with utterly no government experience. And he has embraced Kobach a certified liar, opponent of all classes of minority voters, and general idiot in the mold of the President Elect.
