One thing for sure this year, I am spreading the money around as best I can...

By money, I mean the money I can spare to spend on candidates.

In previous years, before the internet, I would send my entire political budget close to home.

I never had a lot of money, but I would volunteer and help set up databases and take care of the books, that kind of stuff.

But now that I am pretty much on the sidelines, I skimp and save so that I can send off a couple hundred dollars.

I fancy myself as the WCGreen PAC for America and send out $25.00 here, $15.00 there.

It's not much, but come this November, I will have been a part of campaigns all over the country.

Montana, Ohio, FLA, Nevada, Wisc, MA and the big guy himself BO.

It's a wonderful thing this internet. It makes an ordinary fella feel like he is hob nobbin with the pooper smoochers.

And, it makes things interesting on election night.

So make way Kock Brothers, WCGreen is throwing some chips on the table.

6. If every active person here sent off 20 bucks to ten races across the country...

just imagine what that would do...

say if 2,500 people did that, that a half a million bucks being put to work for the good guys....

4. You're making some very smart choices.

Especially given the constraints you have to live with...
