what more could i say to sound important?

i can say every person behind bars,put there
for statutes,ordinances and color of law
will be pardoned
i could say i will repeal our involvement
in the UN
i could state i will get rid of the IRS
i could go on and on about what i would do
in my dreams to become president,seeing it won't
happen,i could say say everything under the sun
remember promise but deliver NONE!!

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence

How about non-violent cocaine and heroin offenses?

While 'we' are at it, why don't 'we' pardon all crimes without an actual victim, including so called tax crimes? Yeah, that would just about do it.

Love the message...not the messenger.

Ron Paul or none at all!

Well, I am voting for

Well, I am voting for Spaceman Spiff because he's the best person for President, even though he won't be on the ballot since he's a cartoon characther and all, but if you don't vote for him, you're just a defeatist.

How about pardoning nonviolent gun possessors?

You know, those incarcerated individuals in NYC, Chicago, LA, Philly, Washington, et al, who have been unconstitutionally prosecuted for exercising their Second Amendment rights? Come on, Gary, you can say it. Or can you?

Interesting. I could have sowrn most poeple on this site would support this message. Ron Paul does. I guess the neo-cons are here in full force to down vote messages such as this.

Gary Johnson on June Job Numbers: Time for Hand-WringIng Is Over

July 6, 2012, Tampa, FL — Presidential candidate and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson released the following statement regarding the June jobs report:

“The anemic jobs numbers for June simply confirm what Americans already know: That employers cannot and will not hire new employees with the federal government continuing to rack up trillions of new debt, a tax system that does all the wrong things, and massive uncertainty about the true costs of impending health care mandates.

“Abolish income taxes, repeal the health care mandate, eliminate deficits, and then watch as American entrepreneurs and the private sector put millions back to work.

“The time for hand-wringing and nibbling around the edges is past. We don’t need a 10-year plan for balancing the budget; we need a 1-year plan. We don’t need token reductions in income taxes; we need to eliminate them. And we need to elect a President and a Congress who get the simple fact that less government will mean more jobs.”

Who cares?

Gary Johnson is not going to be president. If you're pretty sure Ron Paul is not going to be on the ballot, at least spend your time trying to get liberty candidates elected who have a chance of getting more than 8% of the vote.

Eight Percent

Eight percent of the general election vote for Gary Johnson would be HUGE.

Eight percent would be the balance of power in the election, no matter who won. Eight percent would demonstrate the political power of Liberty that the MSM couldn't dismiss or explain away.

Eight percent would guarantee that Liberty candidates could not be shut out or ignored in the future. Eight percent would qualify the LP for federal matching funds the next cycle, perhaps as much as $90m - the same money the old parties already get. That would mean funding for hundreds of Liberty candidates for Congress and a professional political organization.

It would be enough to sink Romney and the corrupt Republicans once and for all. But then you Paul "supporters" who have listened to the devil and drank the neocon Kool Aid don't want that, do you.

Thetis

First of all, we Paul-supporters that are not

libertarians are Paleocons not Neocons, something Libertarians should learn to distinguish. Secondly, Ron Paul chose to abandon the LP for a reason. We live in a duocracy whether we like it or not. Spending time and money to get a third party candidate up to 8% when that time and money could be spent actually getting like-minded people elected to Congress and Senate is a waste of time and money.

You're right. Neither Gary

You're right. Neither Gary Johnson nor Ron Paul are going to be president. Mitt Romney or Obama, the paid for by lobbyist candidates, will be president. I guess since we all know that we may as well just drop our support for the message of liberty.

BTW, why should we care what

BTW, why should we care what Romney is saying since he's not going to be the next President either!

So let's just have Barack Obama debate himself. Which would be pretty easy since he has had everything two ways.

You don't want to hear someone espouse options to the 2-Party Socio-fascist system? Or is that Fascio-socialist?

What a stretch, how about pardoning ALL victimless crime!! That would be a start to restoring justice.

minus votes

must be the daily paul members trying to convince santorum delegates to vote rp. Maybe that's why we had the muslim 'stoning' video on here too.

why would anyone downvote a policy they agree with?

Because Ron Paul has THE plan

And those of us who are following his plan are being undermined by those who didn't get it, and now think GJ is the answer. He's not. He's giving those who didn't follow Ron Paul an out, and that hurts those of us who are still with RP.

You guys don't understand the GIFT Ron Paul gave you. You are being drawn into a gopher hole and you'll go nowhere, while hurting those of us who need your support to accomplish RP's plan in the GOP.

Please don't tell me what you learned about the GOP on MSM and YouTube. I am the GOP establishment, I have power and you can too, but not with GJ.

I don't see how voting for

I don't see how voting for Gary Johnson in the general election, with Ron Paul not on the ballot, is contradictory to this. It's not like you have to register as a Libertarian or can't join a GOP central committee if you vote for GJ

You can't be seated on a CA CC and support GJ

It's in our by-laws under Terms for Removal from your seat, and you sign an Oath to the loyalty to the party.

Maybe you can and in your mind and heart sit there and lie to them, but I can't.

Furthermore, I don't want 4 more years of Obama and if Ron paul does not get the nomination, for me, it's between Romney and Obama.

GJ won't even get 15%.. he got all of 21 votes in my county district, Roseann Barr got 207, Ron Paul 749.

IOW "you sold your soul, pay

IOW "you sold your soul, pay up".

Are you going to run and tell?

How people vote in November is no one's business but their own.

How can anyone prove that someone voted for someone else than Romney?

I don't relate

I'm a Cathiolic, and my soul belongs to Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ will care for my soul and since you are not Jesus Christ, it's not your problem. Worry about your own soul. I'm not worried or concerned for your soul. That's your property, your business, and I have NO intention in making it mine.

Run and tell? I don't follow what you are saying, implying.. I don't get you.

I agree that how people vote is their own business and I'm not here telling people how to vote. I'm here asking people to join me on THEIR GOP committees. I'm NOT forcing them, simply inviting them and explaining how to do that. If they are NOT interested I completely repsect that and them and wish the luck at whatever path/vote they choose. Libertarian Party has central committees, join yours (though doesn't look like GJ is inviting anyone... go figure)

How anyone can proove how another voted I have NO idea. I know that for me, being I am OPEN and HONEST and don't care if YOU or everyone in the world doesn't like how I vote, I'm going to vote for Romney if Ron Paul does not get the GOP nomination, AND I PRAY HE DOES. If He does Not, I will OPENLY tell anyone who is interested that I am planning on voting for Romney. I've explained to you why, and if that's not good enought for you. TOUGH. Insulting me isn't going to make me change my mind.

I could care less who YOU vote for.

That loyalty oath is kinda

That loyalty oath is kinda creepy, though it's not like establishment Republicans don't lie through their teeth on a wide range of topics. And I will not vote for a candidate as bad as Romney, even if he's slightly "better" than Obama. Anyways, there are millions of Ron Paul supporters in the country, and by simple mathematics, not all of them can get seats on county committees. And for that vast majority, voting for Gary Johnson doesn't harm the Ron Paul movement in any way.

The Loyalty Oath makes sense to me

It provides reasons for removal, and if we had more RP GOP seated, we could remove them.

GJ harms the RP movement in that it's associated, However, I agree with you that it does not harm the rEVOLution becasue it gives the ones whose so called principles are based on vanity a place to go to thonk they didn't vote for Obama by default.
