WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH KANSAS ? clearly demonstrates how only voting, 'For' ,or 'Against', "Cultural Issues" (Abortion, Gay Rights, Gun Control, Immigration, etc), is a waste of a vote. Although voters are led to believe otherwise, in state elections these subjects are usually not even on the ballot, and by voting for candidates solely on the basis of their positions on these issues is ridiculous. However, it does allow that the social and economic issues which ARE of value to the electorate are then, NEVER addressed. Only in modern day America would a voter with No job security, No benefits, and No health insurance determine who gets his vote by wondering how the candidate stands on The Right To Life or The Death Tax. This film proves how Kansas got fooled, and I hope it's a Head's Up for the rest of America. And, I think that the film goes the extra mile to portray these religiously motivated(deluded?)individuals in the most favorable light. After the credits rolled, I only felt pity for these people.
