OT Libertarian ballot access

greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

Libertarians, please respond.

It seems like every two wks, the party is asking me for more donations. Could someone please explain to me how my donations of $37.50 can buy 50 names on a petition to put a candidate on a balot? Thanks in advance.

One more question. When I post a question to this forum, I am asked if I want notified by email of responses. Does this send to the email address I have posted here, or to the server I'm using?

That's a bleedin' liberty if you ask me :)

To your e-mail address.

Campaigning costs money, and competing against large entrenched political parties costs a lot of money. If you believe in what the Party is trying to do, send em what you can. A few bucks every couple of months can help a lot.

Hi RW,

The money is to pay people to go house-to-house, stand in malls, or go other places where there are people to collect signatures. Apparently there aren't enough volunteers available in some areas (and if not, I'd suggest the LP put it's efforts elsewhere).
