Independent Kansan is a blog about bringing common sense back to politics and social discussion. These days fear and money dominate our political system. Neither party seems to really be representing the very people who vote for them. 24 hour cable news networks report what they find sensational and what boosts ratings rather the true reporting of the news. Independent Kansan is committed to putting forth a common sense approach to civil discussion (with perhaps a little humor on the side.) Please read and comment. We hope to provide a voice of civility in a world of madness.
