Watch What's the Matter with Kansas?

These days, the state of Kansas is synonymous with Right Wing conservative movements. Quite a state of politics in of all places, Kansas, because it used to be considered a hotbed of socialism in America. This documentary chronicles the ways Kansas was transformed, from far left to far right, in the political spectrum. It explains the Populist Party, a political organization nearly forgotten now over 100 years later. Socialist ideals were how people actually lived in the early days of Kansas. Also known as the People's Party, this grass-roots movement began with poor farmers, fed up with being exploited by rich capitalists.
