Is Gary Johnson on the ballot in all 50 states and the islands?Submitted by ArsenalGunners11 on Sun, 09/02/2012 - 22:38
Just curious, because I do not know. My vote sticks with being a Write-In for Ron Paul... HOPEFULLY. From what I've heard, it does not sound like Ron Paul will be running third party. However, good luck to all of you voting for Gary Johnson as well.
It is a good idea to check what your state has set up for rules on voting for Write-In candidates though (Just in case we do not see a Gary Johnson or Ron Paul selection). I've heard it rumored at least that in some states, if you Write-In a vote, the rest of the ballot is void? I would hope that is not true, but check with your Secretary of State office. The reason being, is that if you have important local elections to vote for (which YOU DO), then even keeping the option of 'Abstaining' your vote for president might be the right way to go.
With this in mind, I am recommending that people start looking into their local elections a bit more than the presidential race.
Think about this:
Every Republican candidate that ran for POTUS 2012 has first been a state governor, senator, or congressman, except for Herman Cain.
When 2016 comes around, wouldn't it be nice to have a few more Constitutionally minded candidates debating on that Republican stage?(hopefully even endorsed by Ron Paul) Ron Paul has been the Champion of the Constitution in 2008 & 2012, and there of course has been nobody like him.
Wouldn't it be nice to push the Establishment GOP candidates off that stage, and see a Tom Davis, Justin Amash, Jim DeMint, Judge Nap., up on stage debating, and NEVER have to see a Gingrich, Santorum, or Romney up on the stage?
IF... IF... IF... We truly are the future, then let's consider changing our strategy a bit. Get your local liberty minded candidates elected if possible.
Romney or Obama may be our next president, but nobody ever said that WE THE PEOPLE can't send them a few libery minded, Constitutionally principled representatives.
Take the next 2 months and focus in on finding out more about who to vote for in your local state elections. THAT will further this movement.
