Why I resigned.

I resigned for many reasons. I still have many concerns about how our state is ran. I will list and explain each reason.

1. My health.

My blood pressure went to 176 over 120's. I was put on blood pressure meds. Now my pressure is about 136 over 76. Normal levels average 120 over 80. My blood pressure problems are secular too my Factor V Leiden. That is a liver blood disorder. It cause severe blood clots and depletes my ability to carry oxygen. My breathing is getting worse, not better. My skin is getting infections as my immune system is slowing down.

2. Disability rules.

If I was to win the Governor race, I would loose my disability and health insurance the very second I make more than $14,987.00 in a single year. The position of Governor pays, $110,000.00 a year. If I was not reelected, I could not return to disability for the same disorder that I suffer from now. I would loose my health insurance and disability income forever. I would be able to get a job, do to having pre-existing medical conditions. Governors no longer get severance pay or benefits when faithfully leaving office in Kansas.

3. Legislative bullies.

The Kansas Constitution demands that the Governor has to write a reason and show just cause, in veto power usage. The Kansas Legislature is not required to do the same. All they have to do is get 2/3 of the Senate and 2/3 of the House to override the veto. Even if the veto is because the Bill is illegal, it still can be overridden by those breaking the Law. Yea, the Kansas Legislatures.

4. Dictating elect positions.

The parties, not the Governor appoints or fills vacant Representative an Senate seats. The people can Recall Petition corrupt Senators and Representatives, but they cannot decide the replacements. The parties are the only ones who do this. Yea, the parties dictate the elect positions.

5. The Legislature and the Governor already broke the Law and the Attorney General endorsed this.

The State wide smoking ban superceded, "Home Rule". This is unconstitutional. Each city and county has the right to "Self Governance". Home rule was put in place by a peoples referendum. Read it at


6. I don't want to become a thief.

All I would be able to do as Governor, is show the corruption and, by the powers of the job, would not be allowed to fix them. I would be paid $110,000.00 out of your tax money just to show the problems and denied the power to fix the problems by the very corrupt Legislation committing treason.

8. What I still offer.

I can and will still expose corruption in Kansas. I will work towards setting up meetings and exposing the corruption. I will help advise the citizens in all of the 105 counties and all the 627 cities in Kansas. We all have witnessed corruption in Kansas politics. We need to complain at the County/City level and demand they uphold our "Home Rule" rights. We need to demand that we are heard. We need to constantly file against and protest the capitol. We need to demand local accountability from our Commissioners and City Counsel Members. We need to run our state. We need to stop our state from running through us!
