You Have 18 Days Left To Save the Nation From Repug Tyranny

January 26 is the deadline for filing to run for local, state and national offices in Kentucky.  There are dozens of repug seats that still have no Democratic challenger.

What is wrong with you people?

I could run my cat in any of those races and have a better-than-even chance of him winning just because he has a D next to his name (although temperamentally he is absolutely a reich-wing nutcase) and people are going to be jamming the polls desperate to throw the repug bastards out of office.

No, it doesn't cost $50,000 to run for a General Assembly seat.  It costs $500 to file to run.  That's it.  $500.  There is no law that says you have to spend a single dime on ads or yard signs or campaigning at all.  You can go home from the Secretary of State's office and just sit there until November, then graciously accept your repug opponent's grudging concession.

For the record, there are no Democratic candidates listed for state House seats in the 1st, 2nd, 6th, 9th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 16th, 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st, 23rd, 26th, 27th, 29th, 33rd, 40th, 41st, 42, 43rd, 47th, 48th, 50th, 51st, 53rd, 54th, 55th, 57th, 58th, 59th, 61st, 62nd, 63rd, 64th, 65th, 66th, 72nd, 73rd, 80th, 82nd, 83rd, 84th, 85th, 86th, 87th, 90th, 96th, 97th, 99th and 100th Districts.  Here's the map

Right now, the repug majorities in the state House and Senate are slashing the budget that supports Kentucky's economy because they are too cowardly to force the rich and corporations to cough up their ill-gotten gains of the past 40 years.  You can fix that.  Run to replace them.
