Re: please help us with ballot access

Dear Libertarian,

Our petitioners in Arkansas have made great progress since I wrote to you on 3/27/2015. They've collected 8,972 raw signatures as of last week. We plan to spend $25,000 on this important petition drive.

We just mailed a letter in a yellow envelope asking for donations to help support this effort. If you received the letter, please send us back a donation right away. Ballot access is a crucial task, and we need your support.

Robert Sarvis on debate exclusion

From the second of a 4-part series in Collegiate Times by Libertarian Rob Sarvis, who ran for US Senate in 2014 and for governor in 2012:

"So why does debate exclusion matter if I had such a small chance of winning anyway?"

"First off, my chances of winning would have been a lot higher if I had had been included in the debates. But more importantly, the voters benefit when a debate or forum goes beyond the carefully scripted nonsense of Republican and Democrat campaigns."

Rob Sarvis contrasts running with the old parties versus as a Libertarian in Collegiate Times

"Up until a few years ago, I was as disdainful of third parties as most people are. When I first ran for office in 2011, I didn’t even consider running outside the two major parties, even though I had plenty of complaints about each.

"So how did I end up running as a statewide candidate for a third party just a couple years later?"
