Split my time between Iowa & Kansas, own a fair amount of land in rural (Republic County for the Kansans in here) Kansas. Most of my family was born & raised there. I would consider myself moderate, and left of center socially.
To someones earlier point, yes I would say people I know tend to not like Brownback. That said, cold day in hell they'll vote in a Democrat and so their hand was forced.
Most people I know aren't pro open carry either, but pro concealed.
I don't know... we'll see what the future holds. Kept getting squeezed for more property tax to cover the income tax cuts (real, and also the opportunity zone crap), and last year I got a huge form trying to get me to itemize all of my personal property to tax it too.
I know most people aren't from here, but it's a good state and people generally leave me alone. I wish we had a bit more common sense politically, but that's the situation we find ourselves in. I hope as this generation passes on, things might change.
