Libertarian presidential candidate optimistic about uphill fight

...............Gary Johnson described the Federal Reserve as a group of "crony capitalists" and called the bailout scheme an "inside job" that was tantamount to grand theft from taxpayers.

Charlotte Dameron brought her 10-year-old son, Michael, to teach him about the importance of integrity and leadership when considering political candidates.

"I vote on issues and Johnson's are in line with mine and the Libertarian Party's," Dameron said. "But I wanted to bring my son to teach him how one person can make a difference in a grassroots effort."...............

about the author of this thread, from another long time member,(not written by me),
but I can confirm what this poster has said about the fraud known as LL. The poster that wrote the following will remain anon, but I will confirm he has been here since DP inception, as have I, and I can also personally confirm all following words are true, regarding Legalize Liberty.

"my observation over the last few years, I have noticed that it is not about support for any particular candidate. It is about how much attention (be it positive or negative) and exposure he can garner for himself.

It's like a toddler who constantly throws their sippy cup on the ground. They'll keep doing it as long as you pick it up. As long as you keep picking it up, he's got plenty of "love" for you. But stop picking it up, or dare say something out of frustration and you get labeled everything from a mossad/FBI agent, a sell out, to a Romney supporter.

If he can't manipulate you to do what he wants, then he usually throws a tantrum until he gets banned, and eventually let back.

I used to have some compassion for the guy before I began to see his true nature. I have plenty of personal faults, but this guy pretty much represents everything I stand against.

I've tuned in occasionally to see you two go rounds, and I'm telling you there's no use in trying to reason with him. He takes zero personal responsibility. Blames everyone and everything else. Thinks he's above the rules. His sense of entitlement is astounding. Takes advantage of people's good nature. Narcissism that knows no bounds. And a closet authoritarian, just salivating for some sense of power over others. (you should have seen how he acted when he was a mod) He's basically identical to the type of corrupt lying politicians we are trying to get out of office.

His "work" here would be the equivalent of me immersing myself in MEXICAN politics, joining one of their political forums, and telling them what to do 7 days a week. It's odd to say the least. (fatal attraction type of odd) I doubt he's even registered to vote in his own country.

As someone who's been there and done that, I would advise you to ignore him and he'd just go away, but no such luck. He thrives on the attention, one way or the other. I can only hope that he will eventually push the boundaries (as toddlers do) to the point of him getting a permanent time out. The attachment of his self esteem to this site is not only not healthy, it's strange.

I hope someday he'd get an actual paying job, produce something, and get involved locally, rather than see what kind of freebies he can get off of everyone else. Right now, I couldn't care less what he does. He's become a giant PITA with this "GeeJay" thing, and thinking he's Kasmir Polokski reincarnated."

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016

I can confirm this also.

Although my current member status doesn't indicate it, I have been here since 2007. I cancelled my membership here when Michael and the Mods allowed the OWS trolls to take over this site, then re-joined because I couldn't stay away. And here we are in the same situation today, with distractions and division nearly every day, and Legalize is a major part of that divisive element.
LL has ALWAYS been an attention junkie. Always bumps his own threads by "thanking" everyone who makes a comment. Always tooting his own horn. He offers fake, flowery shows of "affection" like honoring someone with a song, or saluting them with a beer, to trick people into thinking he's a wonderful "activist". Then, if you don't support his stance, he slanders, labels you a Neo-Con or Romney supporter, and shows his true, hateful colors. A master at manipulation.

I used to feel sorry for him too. But not any more. He's artificial in every way, and a parasite who has sucked off the energy of this movement for the past 5 years, just as he sucks of the Canadian government for his existence.

In truth, I think he drove many, many devoted RP supporters away from the DailyPaul, and unlike me, they've never returned.


Everyone used to feel sorry for it!lol
I hated this POS since I read its first post in 2007, and saw right through it- but I never made one comment to it. I sat for YEARS and watched this troll descend into rant after miserable rant and could never understand why it was allowed to disrupt the way it was.
It has posted the most arrogant and ignorant rants Ive come across on any site even the neocon sites. It has been banned from site after unsuspecting site- unfortunately after running off many of their long time users. There is only one reason why it is still allowed in DP after everything it has posted over the years.
Lets see if anyone else can figure it out, im not in the mood to do others homework and give thought...


"Thank You patriot"!
"God Bless you and your family, liberty seeker!"
"Cyber kisses to you and a big hug!"
"Thank You brother in liberty"!
"bless you patriot"
"all my love and godspeed sister in liberty"!
"waving my flag after reading your post!":)
and on and on and on and on.....

mean while later that night after a few sips of the juice, THE TRUTH!!!!!...

"F-you traitor"
"Get back in hell DEMON!"
"stfu you POS"
"Satan himself controls your words on this forum"
"I hate you!"
"You belong in hell with the other traitors"!
"you are mosad, and hate liberty"
"I hope they come and drag you away in chains"

Then!!!wait for it!!!

Then, when it was left on its own to be MOD, it ran the site like the NAZI SS!lol
LL was a little authoritarian troll running around and issuing citations for people exercising their free speech which LL LOATHES!
It was banning people left and right. all the ones who went up s against LL in the past before when it wasnt MOD felt its wrath when given the power to delete their comments.
LL was a little HITLER!!
Telling people off and staying on the site day and night paTROLLING, LOOKING for comments it found distasteful and over the line in its opinion, to ban or change!lol
Then it locked the commenter out so they couldnt change what LL wrote in their name!lol
What a joke it made of itself! We watched as it went on rant after rant, showing its DP badge, and flashing the copy of "posting guidelines" which LL itself NEVER adhered to !!!!
Oh how funny it was!lol

Unsuspecting innocents had no chance when it locked its viewfinder onto their comment it found offensive.
He would rant and then rave and then show the guide lines, change their post and then ban them when they made an argument!lol

What a lil nazi!

If it wasnt so sick, it would be hilarious.
Oh what a show it put on for all of us to see.
The true colors where seen and seen CLEAR as a BELL.

Now it wants its secret past that it thinks no one remembers, to keep under wraps.


"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016

Right Nominee?

It is my contention that if the Libertarian Party was truly the "Party of Principle," then Lee Wrights would have been nominated. I can't think of a better standard-bearer for big (L)'s than Wrights. Same goes for Mary Ruwart in the '08 campaign: what rationale drove delegates to support neconservatives like Barr and Root over a truly principled libertarian like Ruwart?

"The rich man writes the book of laws the poor man must defend, but the highest laws are written on the hearts of honest men."

Because the LP has been

co-opted and rendered impotent.

they never let a crisis go to waste

while the bulk of the base was joining the revolution it left the LP open to takeover by the Koch type "libertarians" that's how we ended up with Barr and now Johnson.

ok you're all in big trouble now

are you not a Canadian?

are you not a Canadian?

Gary won't be fooling this conservative, I smell another plant!

Gary says he opposes bailouts yet on all his recorded votes, he bailout the insurance industry from the New Mexico house!?

Gary Johnson is a neo-libertarian, an absolute turncoat!

He's getting higher polls like 15% in the liberal media because they intend to use him to steal votes from Ron Paul. For all anyone knows this perfect Gary Johnson guy is just another backup plan to enslave!

I smell a psy op and you won't be getting any of our votes. I'm telling the entire eastern parishes about you!

If RP doesn't get the nomination

How can GJ "take" votes from him?

A psy op?

Where do get what your smoking? It seems to be stronger than mine.

What votes will Johnson be stealing from Ron Paul - delegate votes? That's absurd.

Johnson said one of the major reasons why he went LP when he did - besides debate exclusions by the MSM - was that he thought that the Establishment would stack the deck against Ron Paul, and Paul likely couldn't beat the odds. That is yet to be seen.

However, I'll bet you that if Ron Paul were to get nominated, Johnson would drop out.

Boy, I'll take that bet without hesitation!!

"I'll bet you that if Ron Paul were to get nominated, Johnson would drop out."

I will take your bet and raise you by six-hundred!
I will also win that bet, so you better be sure of yourself!

I never lose one bet. Johnson's good pal, the CFR globalist cretin douglas turner ensures us of that.

You're on...


Put your money where your mouth is.

The bet will activate if Ron Paul receives the nomination.

Is Charlotte Dameron is a ball of fire activist for GJ?

No she's not even lukewarm. Well actually not even cold or indifferent. You see Charlotte is a member of the largest social networking site there is. She has been there since August 9, 2007. She likes 161 different facebook pages but ironically not one is political. She hasn't even liked Gary Johnsons facebook page.


So for Charlotte to say this in the article.

"Charlotte Dameron brought her 10-year-old son, Michael, to teach him about the importance of integrity and leadership when considering political candidates.

"I vote on issues and Johnson's are in line with mine and the Libertarian Party's," Dameron said. "But I wanted to bring my son to teach him how one person can make a difference in a grassroots effort."

An internet search for Charlotte Dameron Gary Johnson reveals nothing other than some links to the OPs article.

So much for Garys supporters and the mother teaching her son about grassroots efforts.

This isn't an uphill fight for Gary,it is a disaster and he knew deep down that he shouldn't have ran on the Libertarian ticket and that's why he tried to get Ron Pauls blessing but got rebuffed.

He is a divider like a few here that don't have anywhere else to go to prattle on about this 3rd rate shallow man.

Gary isn't optimistic,he is pipe-dreaming.

"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul

You're a real big man...


Yeah because its un-American...

if for some reason - like participating in real life - that people don't live vicariously through facebook. Moms with 10 year old children have enough on their plates.

Trying to degrade a lady for actions she does or does not do in her personal life is low - especially for what she does on your favorite social networking site.


Trying to degrade a lady on facebook? Is that the best crap you can throw back to see if it sticks? She's too busy? She can like over 160 pages there but not Gary Johnsons because she's too busy with her 10 year old? Give me a break. Were you a dodgeball champ as a child?. You get refuted here all the time about your crappy wanna be candidate and all I ever see you do is deny the facts just like you are doing now.

I point out the fact that a "supporter" of Gary Johnson mouths off about grassroots activism for her son in an interview is nowhere to be found anywhere on the net. That's is a fact.

For all we know she's a paid actress.

"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul

From reading the article...

This lady was one of three people that was questioned from the Johnson event. More than likely some reporter came up to her and asked her if she wouldn't mind discussing what her thoughts were about Johnson and what had brought her out there.

She replied with a rational response that was probably more newsworthy than other responses. The reporter probably asked several people questions. This lady's statement just happened to get chosen.

Then, a big person such as yourself flames on her response and does some creepy independent investigation into her personal tastes.

She was a lady at a political rally. Who knows - she may have just gotten familiar with Johnson over the last few weeks, heard he was coming to town, it worked into her schedule, she went with her boy, and she happened to be asked some questions by a reporter.

That somehow seems much more farfetched than her being a paid actor, though. She's probably an MK-Ultra plant working for the CIA. Her 10 year old son was probably really a well-shaved 40 year old midget.
