Many prominent Republicans are now openly vowing to cross party lines and vote for Paul Davis as our next governor. That is a powerful indication of the anger and dismay they feel toward the crippling destruction Governor Brownback has dealt this state. But it is doubtful that a change in governor alone will stem the tide. Our congress has faithfully endorsed Brownback's requests. A resounding message needs to reach them. When a government gets as lopsided as ours, greed can run rampant. We need a return to a more evenly balanced congress. We all must work together to heal our state.
