Kansas is Free

Kansan voters passed a new constitutional amendment, that we now, as a rule, have the right to keep and bear arms in Kansas. I think that deserves a song...

It is now a point of law that we retain our right to bear;
Kansas is a friendly land to free men everywhere.
Our state is now another place that tyrants never dare
To goose-step us into to tyranny, lest our "Liberty Teeth" we bare.

Go tell a candid world, O ye Sons of Liberty,
Kansas is now insured against the threat of tyranny,
From the Jayhawks in Topeka to the despots in D.C.,
Tell them Kansans are refreshing Ye Olde Tree of Liberty!

Our liberties we prize, and our rights we will maintain.
We've defended them before, and we will do it now again.
The power over men and arms is now quickly being drained,
As the chains are loosed from freedom, despotic rule is being reigned.

Go tell a candid world, O ye Sons of Liberty,
Kansas is now insured against the threat of tyranny,
From the Jayhawks in Topeka to the despots in D.C.,
Tell them Kansans are refreshing Ye Olde Tree of Liberty!

We may never have to use them, and it's our hope we never do,
But it's best to have the upper hand should corruption e'er accrue.
If our votes just plain won't work, our glinting muzzles will, in lieu.
And we'll raise the yellow Rattler Flag, like our forefathers used to do.

Go tell a candid world, O ye Sons of Liberty,
Kansas is now insured against the threat of tyranny,
From the Jayhawks in Topeka to the despots in D.C.,
Tell them Kansans are refreshing Ye Olde Tree of Liberty!

Whoo hoo! I don't even know how Missouri elections turned out because I'm not there currently.

I think it went pretty well, actually, but the truth will be told when all of the new representatives start representing... or not.

True

My district is the 76th. I love that number. One could come up with an interesting campaign slogan with that...
