As a little L libertarian, who is anti-war and pro-peace, I urge you to donate a dollar to keep her in the Democratic debates. Yes, I know, that on many policies, she is as terrible as the rest of the socialist aka communist candidates.
BUT, (and there is always a BIG butt),
*** begin quote ***
And though July’s second debate uses similar rules, the DNC announced late last month that starting with September’s third debate, it will be a good deal tougher to make the cut.
First, the polling threshold for inclusion will be raised to 2 percent, in at least four polls between June 28 and August 28.
Second, and even more worryingly for much of the field, candidates would also need 130,000 unique donors to qualify (with at least 400 donors each in 20 states). Meaning they can no longer get in through polling alone, as seven candidates seem likely to do for the first debate. And even those who already reached the 65,000-donor level would have to rake in a lot more support.
Candidates who rely on traditional big-dollar fundraising, self-funders, candidates focusing intensely on early states at this point, or those who are simply less nationally known may have a very tough time meeting that standard.

So, even if you just donate a dollar, that will make you a “unique donor”!
So, if you want to keep the “anti-war” candidate on the debate stage, then you have to act.
I think of it as a way to send a message to all “We, The Sheeple” that “anti-war” questions should be asked of all the candidates.
Call it hacking the Democratic Debates.
Think of it as part of a “peace commercial” for a dollar!
