Slow Fuse Money Bomb Update!

Hey Kids,

A quick update on the slow fuse money bomb post/repost from a couple of days ago. It's working! The adsense ticker is ticking and the clicks are mounting up as the names of Handel, Barnes, Oxendine and Deal keep getting hit on the sidebar. I know it's not as impressive as those limited time money bombs that all the other political party's do but it is impressive to us. And it looks like we've gotten to some sort of tier one critical mass here at Bludgeon & Skewer if the stuff I'm reading at Google Analytics is true.

So how do we proceed from here?

First of all, we have a TV Time limit on the upcoming special election over in Georgia House District 19. Qualification closes at the SecState's office on 27 January 2010 and as of right now there are two republicans that have announced for the seat. No Democrats, No Greens, No Constitution Party, no independents and no Libertarians. We've been out to the district, had a lovely conversation with the Mayor of Hiram and several other folks and it seems that the only people who live there are republicans. That is simply astonishing.

We've enlisted the assistance of other members of the Georgia LP, posted up to FaceBook, prowled the local boards and the two weekly media outlets that serve the district and so far all of our efforts add up to bupkis. Nada. Nothing.

So we're gonna make one last appeal to the readership and implore you to rack your brains, check your rolodex's and review your email lists for some hardy soul that would be willing to hoist the colors of Liberty and run as a Libertarian in Georgia House District 19. Remember, to qualify they have to have lived in the district for at least 12 months, be 25 years old or older and be able to hold office (no felony convictions).

If you know of anyone that could run, call 'em or email 'em or tweet 'em and tell them to get in touch with the merry crew at Bludgeon & Skewer for a shot at a pretty cool part time gig at the state house.

And while you're doing that, be sure to click on your favorite politician's ad over on the sidebar and let the slow fuse money bomb do it's stuff.


  1. My husband is considering running. He was thinking of running as an independant.

  2. Greetings Kara,

    It is good to hear that your husband is considering running as an independent as that is pretty close to being a Libertarian. Would it be possible to speak with him about it?

    There are some monetary considerations that are involved in running for the Georgia State House. The Filing fee for the election is $400 and of course the are expenses like yard signs, T shirts and push cards. The LP pays the filing fees for it's candidates but the candidate is responsible for funding the signage and any other expenses.

    In either case, your husband has 4 business days left to make his decision and file with the Secretary of State.

    Once again, we would love to talk to him and see if he would consider running as a Libertarian.
