US Elections—Ron Estes—major slacker and Brownbacker

Once again we have an election here in Wichita, Kansas. It is to replace the seat for Mike Pompeo, the imperialist and fascistic bullet-head that is now running the CIA thanks to President Donald Trump. There are three candidates and while many of my comrades really hate the Democratic Party, I can’t help taking a swipe at the Republicans. They are the epitome of what capitalism really stands for and their ideology is a crude mixture of friendly fascism, rugged individualism and just plain old corruption. Here is an example of a really corrupt insider trying to win this Fourth District House of Representative seat.  

A song years ago, called The Way, by Fastball sang; “An exit to eternal summer slacking.” Well, if they needed a role model for slacking, Ron Estes is their man. Until just recently he has skipped public forums, refused debates, and ran a campaign that says: “I win by default.”
That seems to be his motto. He is the Republican so he is going to win.
And Estes is a man who doesn’t believe in working too hard for that office. While his opponent, James Thompson, Democrat, is campaigning, Estes is out fishing.
Estes has spent a lot of Republican slush money, from all their bribes and kick-backs, on lots and lots and lots of ads. And he’s gone negative, telling people that Thompson is running on behalf of Nancy Pelosi, who today is no longer very relevant to anything in congress, so they can tax the middle class. He also mentions his opposition to Obamacare (Affordable Care Act) which has suddenly grown much more popular since the Republicans started ripping it apart. Some people may not want Obamacare repealed. After all a lot of working poor people don’t favor dying early because they lack health care.
And Estes has avoided telling us how closely he has worked with our governor, Sam Brownback. Brownback has endorsed Estes. So Estes plans to take those same failed economic policies that Brownback has forced on Kansas and try to apply them at the national level.

If you want an easy going politician who doesn’t plan to work too hard, Estes is your man. Most of us don’t need a slacker representing us. As they say: “a slacker’s gonna slack.”

“I’ll take care of business later after I’m done fishing!”

“What’s so bad about Sam Brownback!?”

“Work hard!? I’m gonna win by default. This election’s a cake walk!”
