Brownback, chairman of Cruz campaign in Kansas knock refusal to back Trump

Ted Cruz is known for his candor. It took a lot of corage to do what he did. Impressive. One has to wonder about the GOP. For some reason, peer pressure, manipulation and power are more important than principles.

The GOPs top priority is to get a Republican president into office so that s/he can appoint supreme court justices. What about issues that affect people like healthcare costs, ...? It's all about power. Are we stuck with two political parties entrenched in their own solutions? So far, no one in this week's convention has talked about the problem of not being able to reach across the isle. Isn't that inability to act together on solutions what gives them a low score in the public's eye? Let's see how the Democrats say during their convention.

Are taxes too high here? A look at some numbers and how Lawrence stacks up to other cities

What is wrong with the free enterprise paying for itself? The city's incentives should be invested in projects that benefit the city and its residents. Projects should not rely on tax incentives.
