    I'm a nobody and I'd totally run for something. I'm not in the best districts (jerry-mandered to hell) but I don't have any skeletons in my closet.
    Yes we should 'propel' candidates from our ranks.... that's the point I was making. Otherwise we allow ourselves to be governed by our opposition.

    As for you running, there is lots of "how to" info around already. The problem for now is that you'll need to wait a couple of years. It is too late for 2019 municipal elections and they don't come around again until 2021.Of course, you could use that time to get ready, identify local groups that will help by providing volunteers, and identify donors.

    his executive order will be as effective as his year+ of SOE opioid crisis virtue signaling.
    another way to redistribute our money, ideally with as little oversight as possible.

    Agree with this 100%.
    Anyone that wants to get involved with running for elected office should start doing their research and preparations now.
    Waiting for the next election cycle to prepare guarantees a much more difficult and stressful process.

    I asked Phil but he can't do it.
    UncleJ is also an excellent candidate and he is considering entering politics.
    People should let him know they want him to run for any office of his choice.
    The rest of us should all consider if we are willing and able to run for lower offices.

    The geographic area we need people most is SE. That's Bucks, Montgomery, Chester, Delaware, Lehigh, Northampton.

    People who have never run should be looking at city council in decent sized cities. But, we can't wait for those people to run, win and serve before moving up to State Rep.

    So, we should be trying to identify pro-gun people currently in city councils who would run for state Rep jobs and convince them to get rid of these damned RINOs in the SE in 2020. Someone with a good track record, an ability to raise money, who has a base of volunteers, and who has won an election previously should be able to successfully primary a RINO then win in the fall, riding a Republican wave for Trump. (hopefully)

    To do that, the city council person would need to raise $50k with no help from the state GOP and would need 20 solid volunteers, for a state rep seat.

    All my RINOS have lost to full fledged anti gun demonrats. Only RINO left is two faced Toomey. The RINOS tried to play both sides and pandered to the liberals and lost to the real thing.
    Sticks and stones will break my bones but hollow points expand on impact.

    What does the $50k number translate into on the ground?
