A pleasantly eccentric take on politics

Dear KS Moderate Republicans:

I am writing to extend an invitation to you. I understand that the political climate in Kansas is so tense that there is fighting among fellow Republicans. The Christian Conservative Republicans are treating you like Cinderella’s ugly stepsisters. If you aren’t on board with their Christian Conservative agenda, they are working hard to squeeze you out.

No need to continue to play in that sandbox where you aren’t wanted. We have a new designation for you in KS – Conservative Democrats. That’s right – you heard it here first.

What is a Conservative Democrat?

A Conservative Democrat is someone who is also against excessive taxes. We love our money just like the Republicans. We work hard and want to keep as much as we earn as well. The difference is we believe in social programs. We want social programs run as efficiently as possible and we are against government waste. No excessive government spending with the Conservative Democrats. Just smart spending to help people get back on their feet, offer job training, health care and other things to help those less fortunate.

There are just a few things you will have to get used to if you are going to become a Conservative Democrat. We like art. We think art is very important in Kansas. We also like education. We want to make sure school funding is available to provide for the best possible public school education for all Kansas children.

So if you are for money, art and education – Conservative Democrats are the party for you!

I made a joke today that when I went to vote for the Democrats in the primary, all that was there was a picture of a cricket. Let’s stop this one-party favoritism in Kansas.

This new designation will also allow Kansas Democrats (and there are a few of us) to vote in the primaries and actually have some choices. It will be a richer political landscape in Kansas with a a more vibrant two-party system.

Come on over moderate Republicans – you are always welcome. This is an open invitation without an expiration date. Let’s show the nation we aren’t a Jerry Springer episode full of incestuous political fighting.

Thanks for your consideration. We will be waiting.

    Conservative Democrat, you mean like Ted Kennedy or more like John McCain. There is already a term for moderate republicans, we call them RINO’s, Republican In Name Only.
