Kansas vote was much
different from nation

Wichita Eagle [KS], by Bob Beatty

Original Article

Posted By:wildcat1, 11/27/2012 12:19:36 PM

Kansas has gone for the Republican nominee for president since 1968, and 2012 was no different. Mitt Romney defeated President Obama by 22 percentage points (60 to 38 percent) in the Sunflower State, an increase of 8 percentage points over GOP nominee John McCain’s vote share in 2008. Nationally, Obama defeated Romney by 3.3 percent (50.8 to 47.5 percent).

Comments:
The print mediots in Kansas scream and complain about how Kansas needs more moderates. The voters, thank goodness, ignore them. Kansas is doing just fine in spite of all you read in the Eagle, and most of the far left wing comments after the articles.

Does Kansas have voter id and a method to make vote fraud difficult and dangerous to the parties committing it?

I am curious to know how Romney did in Garden City, Kansas as that is heavily Hispanic due to the beef industry and packing plants in that area. Did he carry that city and county?

#1 yes indeed Kansas has a voter ID law that was drafted by the attorney general Chris Kobach. He also helped draft the same legislation for other states including Arizona. Of course the idiotlibs call him a racist. I am a born and bred Kansan and love this state.

#2 Romney got 67% of the vote in Finney county where Garden City is. Only two Kansas counties went for Obama, Douglas where Kansas University is and Wyandotte where mostly minorities live. Even liberal Johnson county, an effluent suburb of Kansas City went for Romney 67% to 30%

Apologies for the second post, but wanted to thank #4 for the info. I wondered if Johnson County went for Romney, but am not surprised they went conservative this year. They are the county that pushed Sebelius over the finish line each time.

Texas got it right too. But what does it matter? We are all still going to get reamed over and over again for the next four years by a NØbama administration that doesn´t have to worry about getting re-elected.

I really am hoping that NØbamacare includes lots of free Vaseline for all the reaming we are going to be taking the next four years...

Romney´s message was amazingly well received in Kansas.
He won every single category by huge amounts-except for unmarried women.
Obama won that sub group by 19 points, nationally his number was 36 %.
Romney beat McCain´s numbers in KS by 8 points.
In politically diverse and affluent Johnson County ,
Romney beat Obama by 17 points.
Romney obviously did everything right for the overwhelming majority of voters in Kansas.
From the rural farm areas to the upscale suburbs-they got it.
If the electorate was made up of Kansans ( and South Dakotans and Oklahomans .., etc, )
we would have a new president.

Another key is the last line of defense from Obama - our state legislatures and governors - if they have the stones for it.

In NC, our gov is now GOP and our legislature heavily so - but they are not great conservatives.

Hubby and I have lived in several different states during past years and have noticed something about the media which occures in every local area, which is, the local affiliates, reflecting the TV alphabets´ adenda, try to influence the people living there that their happy, satisfying & productive lives are too old fashioned, too out of step and are falling behind the entire rest of the country in just about every way. The lsm acts like one of those terrible parents who plays one child against another! We have always heard, no matter where we are, things like, ´our city MUST have light rail or whatever because Portland has it,´ and our university MUST teach the new social mores to keep up with the Ivy Leagues, and so on, yada, yada, yada. The current lsm apparently won´t be satisfied until everything that makes America exceptional and each state & locality is homoginized into, er, ...WHAT exactly?!!!

Beautiful Kansas is in the heart of America and it still authentically in general represents the values and traditions which have contributed to making the USA great and free. Innovative business & scientific advances are encouraged as are its lovely, well tended & thriving family neighborhoods, schools and farms. These successes apparently make Kansas, (and Missouri!), a natural target for local & national dem-media aggitators who constantly tell the locals that they aren´t, ´keeping up with the Jone´s,´ in NYC.

It is the dems´ lsm which is out of step, NOT the Kansas voters!

This makes me question the validity of the voting methods of all states even more.
The liberal cheats probably forgot there was a Kansas and didn´t think to send in their goons. An oversight..
I can no longer trust the integrity of the vote process.

To continue with the posting theme: Alabama went for Romney over 60%, with some counties counting over 70% R. The exception to the voting pattern was a strip of counties in south Alabama which have predominately poor, uneducated, black populations. Oh, and Jefferson County (Birmingham) as well. Madison County in North Alabama went less than 60% for Romney, but then again, there we have quite a few Yankees who work for NASA and Redstone Arsenal

Kansas, Arizona prevail
in voter citizenship suit
Wichita Eagle [KS], by Dion Lefler    Original Article
Posted By: wildcat1- 3/19/2014 11:16:18 PM     Post Reply
A judge in Wichita has ordered a federal commission to enforce Kansas and Arizona laws requiring documents such as a birth certificate proving citizenship for new voters. U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren ordered the Election Assistance Commission to immediately add Kansas- and Arizona-specific instructions to the federal voter registration form. Those instructions will say that new registrants will have to provide documents proving citizenship before they are allowed to vote, as required by state law. For most people, that means either a birth certificate or passport.

Kansas gun owners would be able to carry a loaded handgun in cars regardless of whether they have a conceal-carry permit if a bill headed to the House floor becomes law. HB2473 would make gun laws uniform throughout the state by preventing local governments from enacting or enforcing regulations. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Jim Howell, R-Derby, passed without opposition in the Federal and State Affairs Committee on Wednesday. Rep. Michael Houser, R-Columbus, offered an amendment – which also passed without opposition – that would make it legal for all Kansans to carry a loaded handgun inside their automobiles. The rationale is

Dodge City — It is hard to find anyone who has seen Sen. Pat Roberts here at the red-brick house on a golf course that his voter registration lists as his home. Across town at the Inn Pancake House on Wyatt Earp Boulevard, breakfast regulars say the Republican senator is a virtual stranger. “He calls it home,” said Jerald Miller, a retiree. “But I’ve been here since ’77, and I’ve only seen him twice.” Roberts, 77, went to Congress in 1981 and became a fixture: a member of the elite Alfalfa Club and chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which made him a regular on the Sunday talk shows. His wife became a real estate broker

Germany´s wind and solar power generation came to a standstill in late 2013. More than 23,000 wind turbines ran out of wind and most of the one million photovoltaic systems ran out of sunlight. For a whole week, coal nuclear and gas-powered plants generated an estimated 95 percent of Germany´s electricity. Britain has 3,500 wind turbines, but during a period of extreme cold they produced just 1.8% of UK´s electricity. But, gluttons for punishment, politicians intend building more.

THREE crops — corn, soybeans and wheat — account for a vast majority of the value of America’s agricultural crop output. But wheat is different in one important respect. While more than 90 percent of the nation’s corn and soybean acres are now planted with seeds genetically engineered to resist insects, herbicides or both, there is not a single acre of genetically engineered wheat being grown commercially in the United States.[snip]But wheat farmers balked at the potentially higher prices of these new seeds and feared that anti-genetic engineering views held by some of our trading partners would hurt exports.

When Gov. Sam Brownback cried “Look out, Texas, here comes Kansas!” in his 2013 State of the State address, he probably did not mean higher property taxes, relocated minimum-wage jobs and unequal school funding. Yet these problems balance out Texas’ storied economic growth. Brownback wants to eliminate Kansas’ income tax, the single largest share of revenues. This would mean massive changes to school funding, services and property taxes. The impact on economic growth is less clear.With no income tax and a relatively modest sales-tax rate of 6.25 percent, Texas also features some of America’s highest property taxes

Duke Rape Accuser Got 160 TV News Stories

When Crystal Mangum falsely accused several Duke lacrosse players of rape in 2006, there were 160 television news stories in the first five days after the players were arrested, but in 2013, when Mangum was convicted of murder and sentenced to 14 years in prison, there were only 3 television news stories, a difference in coverage of 5,233%. When the Duke lacrosse-rape story broke in March/April 2006, it was huge news, garnering massive, widespread coverage by the networks ABC, CBS, and NBC, as well as by FOX, CNN and MSNBC, and the print press, such as USA Today, New York Times and Washington Post.

Soldier beauty queen Theresa Vail, Miss Kansas, has entered the fray created this week when a female Army colonel at Fort Leavenworth branded another female soldier too pretty to use in Army publicity photos. In the leaked email exchange first reported by Politico, Col. Lynette Arnhart warned her colleagues that photos of “average-looking” and “ugly” women should be used in public relations campaigns to attract more women into combat roles. “Unfortunately that is the sick reality and one of the many stereotypes I´m trying to break,” Vail, a sergeant in the Army National Guard, wrote on Twitter Wednesday.

Kansas is safeguarding integrity of elections

The integrity of elections has been a crucial concern of Kansans since the birth of our state. More than any other state, Kansas was born in an atmosphere of rampant voter fraud. Our first territorial legislative election saw 4,908 fraudulent votes cast (mostly by Missourians). In the ensuing years, many Kansans put themselves at great risk to safeguard the integrity of elections. The Kansas (Wyandotte) Constitution, adopted in 1859, provided that every Kansas voter must be a United States citizen to cast a legal ballot. The Kansas Constitution also states that the Kansas Legislature shall provide for “proper proofs,”

For the past 3 1/2 years, opponents of the Affordable Care Act have made misstatements about what would happen to families, to seniors, to employers and to health care costs as a result of the historic law. In spite of their predictions being so wrong, the attacks continue. So it’s important to give a snapshot of what health benefits the law has already produced for Kansans and what the new health insurance marketplace means for qualified residents in the Sunflower State. Let’s start with the 86 percent of Kansans who already have health coverage. Since March 2010, when the law was

From job-killing regulations to invasions of our privacy, the executive branch in Washington, D.C., is out of control. According to the Heritage Foundation, during President Obama’s first term in office, the annual regulatory burden on the economy increased by $70 billion. And in 2012 alone, the president’s team put forward 2,605 new rules. Of those new rules, 69 cost more than $100 million, but only two rules actually decreased regulations. In Kansas, we know a little bit about federal rules and regulations causing us headaches.

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday
