Have you pledged yet?

The hours are ticking down if you want to pledge your support to Thirdpartyticket.com. If 10,000 pledges are made by October 10th, the same man who planned the Ron Paul moneybombs will host a debate for all candidates for president on enough ballots to win the Electoral College. Right now there are just over 8,800 pledges. You can pledge here.

    What is the point of a debate where no one will show up. This guy needs to find a new gig.

    There is a 3rd party debate every election. It is usually on CSPAN and anyone who cares already watches it or knows how to seek it out. Ok. I don’t see the demand significantly higher this year.

    The only debate worth caring about would involve major party candidates as well. We know that ain’t happening.

    Is all the money going to the venue?

    What about say, buying network time in swing states for this? Otherwise, why donate to something that would already be on cspan anyway?

    I guess this guy is just trying to reach a wider audience, johncjackson. You could have said, “Why try to raise money for a fringe Republican?” But Ron Paul’s campaign turned into a great success for him even if he didn’t win.

    sunshinebatman – I don’t know. And I don’t think this event will “be on CSPan anyway.”

    The details for the debate were released today on the site, fyi. It was severely downgraded, unfortunately…

    Useless, last-minute gesture…

    Seeing as how the CPD contract between Obama and McCain prohibits them from attending other debates anyway…

    I’ll post that tomorrow if no one else gets to it first. That’s a disappointment (I never thought Obama or McCain would participate, but I thought at least the top third party candidates would have a professionally organized forum that would get some good press. Looks like that won’t happen, either).
