The above are what the Kansans for Liberty want to do during the 2014 Legislative session. It all sounds terrible. For fun, let’s read between the lines.
Taxation: Lower taxes even more causing the state to be unable to collect money and pay for stuff. Make up for it by raising taxes on poor to middle income people.
Education: Destroy the public education system. Don’t fund it and make it so that the school districts can’t fund it either. Dump standards that force the state to at least be somewhat adequate and create our own so that we can impose what we want to teach on kids.
Abortion: Effectively outlaw abortion. Oh, it’s not illegal but good luck getting one in Kansas.
Environment: More coal. More oil. More gas. More fracking. Stop Kansas from becoming a leader in renewable energy despite being perfect for wind and solar energy.
Workplace: Have private companies take over KPERs and make sure unions have no bargaining powers because 8 hour workdays five days a week is so 1937.
Judicial: We want to make sure that if there is a judge who doesn’t uphold our way of life and our way of thinking that we can quickly remove them from office and replace them with someone who will.
Fluoride: Lie to the people of Kansas about fluoride because why not? THEY ARE PUTTING STUFF IN OUR WATER!! (I love that they included the word “dictate” in there.)
Elections: Your normally bipartisan school board and city council elections will now become cutthroat partisan elections where Republicans running for the state House will buddy up to a local businessman running for a pointless and barely part-time position in Anytown, Kansas.
These are all terrible ideas and I’m hoping these people aren’t as powerful as the CJOnline article makes them out to be. Also, the best quote from the article: "In my opinion, the worst family in the world is better for a child than the best foster home.”
It’s terrifying that my state is run by these people.
