In the past I have frequently gone after Republicans who don't want to have to deal with other people's opinions.
In recent years Republicans have taken on that "anti-government"- pro-libertarian philosophy. I have always seen Republicans are leopards who cannot change their spots. So I knew the libertarian philosophy was only skin deep.
Among the many authoritarian examples of behavior include a new law, House Bill 2234, designed to muzzle those who support stopping climate change. According to this new rule, professors and
In my opinion such violations of free speech sound like fascism and no amount of mislabeling can change the fact that the Republican Party does not want intelligent people flaunting their credentials when they criticize ignorant politicians who rely on the idea of; "what people want rather than the science behind it.”
There is absolutely no logical reason for such laws. This is a clear violation of university person’s constitutionally protected rights. They are for violating free speech and nothing else. Republicans have so much control of the Kansas Government they actually believe they can pass gag laws and no-one will actually call on this for what it really is—fascism!

Brownback also wants to change the way Kansas Supreme Court justices are chosen—being elected—so they have to satisfy Republican sensibilities rather than having the right credentials to the job.
Brownback and his cronies know how coopt the majority of votes in
