Those Nostalgic Republicans

A state senator from Kansas, Kay O'Connor, is now seeking to run for Kansas' secretary of state. Oddly, while Ms. O'Connor is a woman, she has some deep reservations about the 19th amendment.

"I think the 19th Amendment, while it's not an evil in and of itself, is a symptom of something I don't approve of," she said at the time. "The 19th Amendment is around because men weren't doing their jobs, and I think that's sad. I believe the man should be the head of the family. The woman should be the heart of the family."
I feel this way about the 14th amendment. If slave owners had only been doing their jobs, as head of the slave-owning households, we wouldn't have needed to "free" the slaves. They would have been well-cared for!

Still, I can't help but wonder if Ms. O'Connor's opinions were given to her by this man, because, remember, the citizens of Kansas did not evolve as other human beings did, but spontaneously appeared due to the magic word power of the special sky god, at least according to the Kansas Board of Edumacationilaziting Our Childer-folk.

Perhaps Ms. O'Connor would enjoy living in a country where her principles are put into action.
