Libertarian Party of Texas Executive Director Wes Benedict, who now writes for Last Free Voice, has posted a challenge to Libertarians to help retire Mary Ruwart’s debt. Dr. Ruwart, who led on the fifth ballot but eventually lost to Bob Barr on Ballot #6, spent approximately $20,000 in her pursuit of the Libertarian Party’s presidential nomination, and remains roughly $6,000 in the red.
I recently contributed $200 to Mary Ruwartâ€™s campaign (on top of $500 I previously donated) to help pay off some of her debt which is still above $6,000. If youâ€™d like to see Mary run for president again in 2012, or at least show your appreciation to her and encourage real libertarians to run in the future, please visit her website and make a contribution of $500 or $200 or whatever you can do: http://votemary2008.com
If by next Monday Mary raises $6,000, Iâ€™ll shave my head bald again as it was in 2002 when we had a radical platform. Please help. People are complaining about the little hair Iâ€™ve got.
