Dave your talents will pay..Your the best damb researcher I have ever met..
You just gotta find a gig that will pay what you are worth!
I think you should create a political website and post all the stuff you already post..Then you can sell advertising...like a forum, but for politcs..
Keep it small like Colorado...
When you are rich from this forum, you can say...That IFS dufus gave me the idea, I am going to buy him a beer.....hahaha
