WICHTA - Gov. Sam Brownback is campaigning on his administration's efforts to fight against what he calls federal government overreach. The Republican governor found a friendly audience for his re-election pitch Monday at the Kansas Independent Oil and Gas Association convention. Brownback recounted steps the state is taking to fight the listing of the lesser prairie chicken as a threatened species. He says the bird's population numbers are up 20 percent in Kansas. He also talked about efforts to counter an Environmental Protection Agency proposal to expand the definition of waters of the United States, which he claims would encompass ponds and puddles.Brownback says water is inherently a state issue, and he wants the federal government to withdraw its proposed rule. Another area of contention is federal pollution rules over coal.
Over reaching governmemnts is the track record in World History
Over reaching governments is why American has the type of government it has. World history shows that the more control a government has, the lesser quality of life the people have. We as Americans need to always be in guard of that. But We need to be educated on world governments in history and not be subject to generational amnesia where we have no knowledge of history beyond our adult life. Our Government was set up to make it hard for the government to be over controlling and it has worked fairly well, But it is not perfect and it can still be destroyed from with in if we are not vigilant. Sen. Brown back is doing this and preserving Kansas government to govern it's own . Most people does not know the definition of Republic government much less other types of governments.
