    The primary turnout in 2020 in KS was 34.2% of 1,861,264 registered voters. In the 2022 primary EVERYONE got to vote on the amendment. I'm registered libertarian so the abortion amendment was the only thing on my ballot. So based on the 914,711 total votes counted on that amendment, we know the turnout is 47% (914,711 votes out of 1,929,972). I think this shows... #1) that there weren't a bunch of new registered voters. There was a less than 1% (0.84%) increase in registered voters from 2021, but it's actually LESS registered voters than there were in KS in 2020 primary. #2) Unaffiliated and Libertarian voters actually had a reason to show up for the primaries where normally they wouldn't. In KS, they account for 30% of registered voters.

    I would say that's definitely how "I" would have strategized, having worked in campaigns myself years back. Even I initially thought this would pass. Only after seeing many conservatives and Christians falling for the "vast right-wing conspiracy to roll back human rights" angle, did I see that I was wrong as well. This is an empowering victory for the left. They will milk this in the midterms. Abortion has become the flag of human rights. So yes, I think this shows that the right has miscalculated here, and it also shows that many in the "right" unite with the left on this issue. There are more abortion amendments coming up in various states on the November ballot. The whole thing makes me question the real agenda behind the overturning of Roe.

    I would also point out that KS Supreme Court decided this based on this in the KS Constitution: But they should note, the KS Constitution also says in the preamble this here phrase: As I have told others, if the high court of KS wants to rule in such a way, they ought to pass an amendment to-at the very least-remove God's name from it. Because by implication, you are saying God gave you the "unalienable right to abort".

    Yep. Very sad. Republicans outnumber Democrats by almost 2 to 1 in this state and this still was defeated 60-40. So we can't blame this on the dems. And I personally know Christians who were against the amendment. And realize, the amendment was just to state that the Kansas Constitution does NOT give you a "fundamental right to abort" which is what KS Supreme Court ruled, taking the power out of the legislatures hands to even regulate it. And people came out in droves to vote. Not for ending war. Not for saving the rain forests. For protecting the right to kill the unborn as an absolute right. Very sad.

    This "nonbinding resolution" is passed by unanimous consent (voice vote). Has Rand spoke on this? Does he anywhere support it? This seems like it was a big deal. https://www.congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/senate-resolution/623/text

    I play guitar also. Not exactly classical, but my axe is. A 1983 ovation balladeer, mono and stereo pickups. When I get my laptop online I'll send you a link to an original .mp3.
