Johnson campaign has had enough of Republican ballot shenanigans

With word Friday that a challenge has been lodged in Ohio to try to remove Libertarian Party presidential candidate and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson's name from the November ballot in Ohio, a senior advisor to Johnson's campaign is charging that the national Republican Party is mounting a concerted effort to "deny citizens the right to vote for the candidate of their choice."

In recent weeks, with the full support and legal assistance of the Republican Party, Johnson's ballot status has been challenged in Michigan, Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia, Iowa and now Ohio.

Ron Nielson, senior advisor to Gov. Johnson, said the following in a statement released Friday:

"The national Republican Party may not want to publicly acknowledge the presence of a true fiscal conservative in this race, but they are certainly taking Gov. Johnson seriously enough to engage in a concerted campaign to get his name off ballots in key states before voters even get a chance to vote.

"In states across the nation, Republican operatives, lawyers, and in some cases, elected officials, are filing frivolous challenges to Governor Johnson's ballot status. They know that even if their challenges fail, fending them off is a drain on our resources...

The Enemy of my Enemy is my Friend

Exposing Romney and his lawyers ONLY FURTHERS OUR CAUSE! We cannot sit back and let this happen quietly. Sheeple don't have a clue this is happening- Waking them up w/ this has allowed me to expose what the GOP has done to Dr Paul as well.

This is a perfect example of how Romney operates in the business

world. What do you think he will do once he becomes president, not that Obama is any different with his obsession with remote controlled drones. I'm sure Barack views his drones as the best video game ever!

This is proof positive that they fear us and Gary.

They fear Gary Johnson's growing support from us. Do all you people on the fence still have doubts as to who to back now? I know there are concerns but we have a great chance to K.O. the establishment party players and take over. The establishment are fighting us on all fronts because they want to deny us a foothold in EVERY way. They do not want another Ross Perot like challenge. They do not want us in the Republican Party and they will lose. They have already lost because they are going after a seemingly minor candidate. Our power is great.We just have to consolidate it.

The evil machine fears Johnson

They only gave GJ a total of 10 minutes speaking time in the first GOP debates they let him in....then they just kicked him out.

The RNC/Romney Alliance MUST Be Stopped NOW

in 2012, not later. The level of racketeering is just amazing... It looks like Johnson will need more financial resources to combat these attacks.

GJ camp says they will be able to defeat all this crap...

...but it all costs money.

Fighting this takes money away from campaigning.
But don't worry GJ faced this before and won twice vs. the establishment -- he knows how to win against the crooks.

Do you think this might be

Do you think this might be more about keeping any possibility of RP running on the "L" ticket? It feels like it to me....just sayin.

RNC is eliminating the competition and taking away our ability t

To have a choice. I winder if there will be a class action lawsuit against the RNC by all who put their money and time towards an institution who was supposed to honor the people's choice in the election process.

They Recognize

that many Ron Paul Republicans will choose Johnson and are trying to eliminate his name from the ballot in swing states. I live in Pennsylvania, where the corruption of the GOP is deep seated and voter intimidation is ordinary in every election. The only way to battle the GOP is to unregister from their private club. Taking over the Party from within is simply not possible here. Check out Lawyers, Judges, and Journalists by whistleblower Robert Surrick if you want to see how deep it goes.

and let them win?

"The only way to battle the GOP is to unregister from their private club."

That leaves the cake on the table, and they win. I am staying put and taking this party back from the grassroots county level. Those who leave don't have the stamina.

Get Rid Of The Enemy At All Costs

If that is an example of their tactics, then they have put us on notice to show what they will do when they have control of NDAA and TSA.

Ready To Join The LP Party In This Fight?

Please contact your Governors and Fed. Rep. and ask they do something to help protect against the LP ticket.

18th Century

This is a part of the new stragedy of leaving the 18th Century behind.

You know, things like choice, voting, and elections.

I think it our duty to help in the fight here, no matter how we feel about LP, or GJ. This behavior is so commie.

you are so right

Weather you will vote Johnson or not, it is our duty to fight against GOP corruption and their continued attempt to disenfranchise voters. It's not right regardless of who they intend to vote for.

GOP is trying to take him

GOP is trying to take him out? I guess we've found our (new) guy.

Do the two parties

Not make it look like they are trying to take each other out?

This could be a well planned trap?

So Gary Johnson is getting the Ron Paul treatment

from the RNC, and some people here are actually implying that he is a GOP plant, or is CFR? By all means, keep working within the GOP establishment to change it, but don't even consider voting for Romney. A vote for Romney is a vote for tyrrany.

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

exactly

"keep working within the GOP establishment to change it, but don't even consider voting for Romney."

Look at the way the GOP Treats the Gov.

After Gary Johnson won the NM Governor's seat for the GOP and held it for 8 years they cast him aside.

Why? because he is not a neo-con, he is not a crony capitalist and he is not a religious evangelist.

The GOP tolerated him in NM because it is a predominantly Dem state & off the radar. But they never wanted him to go national.

That's when he went from be tolerated to being a threat to the GOP establishment.

Edit

I said: "That's when he went from be tolerated to being a threat to the GOP establishment."

After reading Engel's piece in the New American I'd like to change that to: "That's when he went from be tolerated to being a threat to the GOP POLITBURO."

"One resists the invasion of armies; one does not resist the invasion of ideas" Victor Hugo

Its not a game of patty cake

This is win at all costs politics. The reason Gov. Ventura refers to the 2 parties as political gangs. That is exactly what they are. Crony parties who share the American pie between themselves handing it back and forth every few years or so.

I have heard nonsense about Gov. Johnson being a GOP plant. Not so, the GOP establishment wants to take him down. He has few friends inside the GOP although Dr. Paul speaks well of him (see Stossel RNC clip).

Gov. Johnson is in for a serious fight. His campaign may not be able to answer so many attacks on different fronts. Once again the GOP is working to silence the Liberty opposition.

Gary Johnson

is my choice!

Nothing Surprises Me Regarding the Republican Party and their

corrupt ways. Legalizeliberty, we have an opportunity to have Ron run on the Libertarian ticket if Gary will still agree to step aside. Ron's campaign and supporters along with Libertarian supporters can help fight the GOP from taking the Presidential Libertarian party off the ballot in these states. Sorry but the reality is that Ron has a better chance of winning than Gary and that is probably why Gary would step aside for which I have great admiration for him saying he would and hoping he still will do that. Just hoping you will support us in our efforts to get this agreement going by letting Ron know we support him as well as confirming Gary will let Ron run in his place. Peace to you Legalizeliberty!

Thank you

We need to get the word to Dr. Paul.
Peace to you Hasydelm!

GJ is a CFR GOP co-opting the rEVOLution

To protect the GOP.
wake up!

And that means he should

not be on the ballot?
I think anyone should be allowed on the ballot.

You're just a party first republican.

Thank you, Granger.

It is truly amazing just how blind people can be. Ya gotta wonder how many are really that blind and how many are working for their masters on this site.

Let the down voting for both of us begin! They gotta earn their paychecks.

Ron Paul says that Gary Johnson is wonderful

and that people should take a look at him...
