OBVIOUS REASONS that Kansans Need to Sack Republican Senator Pat Roberts in 2008

 

By Kevin Stoda, internet candidate for U.S. Senate (KS)

 

 

Kansans need set the tone for the whole nation these 2008 U.S. elections, i.e. by getting rid of Senator Pat Robertson (Bush-Cheney crony) as soon as possible.

 

Republican Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas has again and again failed to take positions of good judgment on issues over the last decade. Roberts has also been found absent when big votes are up on the Hill in Washington D.C., e.g. refusing to vote on the Feinstein cluster bomb reduction bill or to vote on Casey’s Responsible Lending and Expanded Debt Cancellation bill.

Meanwile, in other Senate votes, Roberts has supported increased sanctions, demagoguery, and military posturing towards Iran, rather than negotiating. Roberts also voted against key immigration legislation by refusing to force cloture on the floor of the Senate and by voting against the Immigration Dream bill.

 

Starting with Roberts’ failures in the early part of this decade to stave off the poisonous Republican-led invasion and occupation of Iraq (i.e. no WMDs)—costing Kansas tax payers billions of dollars in the interim--, Roberts has continued to support skewed tax policies and has generally not used his moral and political party authority to reign in Neo-con adventurism with Iraq, Pakistan and Palestine.
