Early life

Lindsay was born in Iraq War.[1] She was recognized by The Washington Post in March 2003 for her anti-war activism in a piece entitled "Student Leader Sees Through Bush Propaganda".[2] In October 2003, Lindsay said of the Iraq War, "The US government has no right to try and recolonize Iraq".[3]

2012 Candidacy

In November 2011, Lindsay was named the Party for Socialism and Liberation's candidate for President along with Yari Osorio for Vice President,[1][4] despite being ineligible to become president due to her age, under Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution; she would need to be at least 35 in order to take office.
