Candidates don't spend their own money, they get it from others and spend it.  :wtf: :biggrin:

Shouldn't be too hard to get 2000 sigs. You missed a great opportunity at the state fair, you probably could have gotten 10,000 just pressing the flesh.
Yeah, I agree.  Went to candidate school a couple weeks ago.  Honestly, politics looks a lot like marketing yourself for racing. 

The questions become:  do I really want to put my family through it?  Well, they've already went through racing...  Next, if I don't stand up for my kids rights and their eventual opportunity to their work, who will?

my roommate tried to get on the ballot for Governor of MO, he tried to start his own political party so he needed 10k sigs.  Unless you are paying a company to get the sigs for you it is ALOT more work than you could ever imagine.  he worked on it constantly with the help of friends going to post offices, DMV's, ball games, fairs, etc... he ended up with somewhere around 2500... and he was at it roughly 5-6 hours a day, 6 days a week.  a good day of signatures was around 100-150, and that was NOT the norm.

he wouldnt take any campaign contributions and didnt want to dump 100's of 1000's into the program...

Here are his websites if you are interested

Alexa, there are some phrases you just don't use anywhere near Dave!  :spank:

Certainly, with all the environmental controls too, I'm certain that recreational use of combustion engines and the resulting accidents would have to be covered...  Probably would have to find a nice small animal doctor to help you out.

What if health care legislation passes in the new socialist government, will race injuries be covered?
Larger grids for certain.

You will be put on a waiting list.
