We have a choice this year

We have a choice this year, as Gary Johnson will be on all 50 ballots. I've decided to switch my vote, since I can't vote for Congressman Paul. I hope he gets enough support to win.

Thanks for the interview link

There is strong alignment in ideas and policies between Gary Johnson and Ron Paul.

Gary Johnson deserves to be in the Presidential Debates, to provide an alternative to the endless welfare/warfare discussion we get from the establishment.

Thanks for your comments.
Always a pleasure to bring fresh information...

Gary Johnson as president would not just change America for the better -- his presidency would change the world.

Can you believe some here call Johnson a Neocon?

It reminds me of when the neocons at places like Redstate would call me a liberal for supporting Ron Paul, when in fact, they were the big government liberals.

Can you believe...

Can you believe that no one really cares one way or another about about GJ. I believe that his trolls here are a big pain in the ass.
Can you believe that??????????????

I care...

I care a great deal. I'm a Ron Paul Republican, and I want to hear about Liberty Minded candidates - especially candidates for a national office who will be on the ballot in all 50 states.

Isn't it time you left the GOP?

You've decided to abandon us for GJ. The states have just awarded the counties the seats they earned from the election/voter registration.

While Palins peeps are coming in to steal those seats, you're not concerned about fighting for liberty and getting a seet you earned, but running to a Republican who has 10 fat cats giving him a platform in a marginalized party that has NO power, except to attract you in the name of principle.

If you're actually FOR GJ, join the LP support your guy.

pardon me

Pardon me but did I read in one of your comments today that you are on your county GOP central committee?

What is your purpose here? To build the GOP by promoting the party, recruiting candidates to serve, and registering people to vote Republican? Or are you here to agitate people into a negative sentiment toward Republicans and drive them away from the party?

When I served on my central committee we had to swear an oath to promote and build the party and conduct myself in public in a manner that does not reflect badly upon the party. Did you not take a similar oath?

The comment you replied to only indicated support for having more than 2 voices in the Presidential debates. Nothing about switching from the GOP. Your reply informed that person that he or she has "decided to abandon us [the GOP committees] for GJ [Gary Johnson]" and advised that person to "join the LP {Libertarian Party]". I've seen people on central committees punished for less.

Can't like this enough

Can't like this enough

Hello Pennsyltucky

Yes, I am on the Mendocino County Republican Central Committee, and I did take an oath to my political party, and to the Constitution of the USA, signed a 470 to not commit perjury. I am a proud RepubliCAN and LOVE MY Party very much. I am voting Romney and informed people here of that shortly after Rand Paul endorsed Romney, which upset many people here, but I lead by example, not coersion, which the poster you are refering to has been attempting with me, "pushing" (their words) me to vote for GJ.

My purpose here, to educate myself. I have learned many things on Daily Paul for the 5 years. I was not a Republican when I joined Daily Paul, AKA P.AU.L.. I was an Indy. But I came to believe Ron Paul would remain within the GOP and so I joined. I have no regrets. While I don't always agree with MY party, I am far from alone on my central committee, as we don't always agree on every issue; however, it is another place where I learn, and I LOVE it!

I would hope that my explaining things helps others end their outright fear and loathing, as many here were never Republicans and claim they never will be, based on what they say, which is always negative, if not downright viscious.

There are those here who are smart, active, kind and interested, and I let them know, I would LOVE to see them on my central committee. Yes, I encourage people to come to meetings, see for themselves, it is not as bad as many here, like Gary Johnson supporter, C_T wants them to believe and why he is advocating Gary Johnson.

As for being punished on my committee for less than suggesting someone who is advising proud Republicans like me to abandon my committee seat and vote for GJ, while they remain Republican, C_T, I have been punished, for less.

I was punished for introducing myself as a Ron Paul Republican. I was a guest for a year. And while two or three people showed up at the meetings, they were not going to seat me, but tell me that Ron Paul was a not a real Republican, he was a Libertarian, that his foreign policy was wrong, that he would never be elected, and that I was wasting my time. They were not nice and vented on me, for the way Ron Paul Republicans behaved at the convention waving signs and shouting Ron Paul, Ron Paul!!

I petitioned my ubra Liberal county district as a Ron Paul Republican, on my own, no help from the committee, and qualified with twice the signatures needed, and several from some of the most esteemed residents in town. I'm very popular where I live as I operate a soup kitchen out of my Catholic Church, I am very committeed to my Church, host events, also I volunteer at our hospital for hospice, Chaplin and no-one dies alone program, I am a docent for out Historical society, a volunteer at State Parks and our local events. The local paper even did an article about my qualifying for my seat. My elected seat does not begin until January, I am now appointed. I have recruited members who are now being appointed, and as a Ron Paul Republican who was the campaign volunteer leader for my state district, I'm proud to say, we just gained 5 new seats for my committee from the voter registrations in my county. I registered over 2 dozen people personally.

If for some reason my committee decides it wants to purge me, it will. It will be their loss, as I will continue to support them, because I support RepubliCAN Ron Paul and all the ELECTED Ron Paul RepubliCANs who joined the GOP in his honor. I will still vote ROMENY.

I thank you for the warning, you may find my personal information by clicking on my nick name, my email, location, and real name and by all means, feel free to contact my committee and advise them how to punish me.

have a wonderful posting day!!

PS Welcome to the Daily P.AU. L.! VOTE ROMNEY, I AM.

Great comment

Thank you.

Thank you ((((((((LL)))))))))

It's good to know your love for me is for real.

We disagree on political matters these days

That's all.

I still care about you my friend.
Don't let 'stupid politics' destroy our friendship.

When

When you WORK to undermine what I am doing, and I am only doing what I understood Ron Paul to be ASKING of us, how is that being a friend?

You agree with a guy who claims he was on a GOP central committee, he gives no proof, no personal information about himself, has been here 22 says, is a GJ supporter now, and you chime in to say you appreciate his veiled threat against me.. as I even encouraged him to report me, for a conversation he was not part of, took out of context, but said I could be PUNISHED, (like I already have not been) and you agree with him? That's friendship?

With friends like you who needs the GOP? Really.

We don't agree politically. And the fact you do not support me, and agree with those who are openly hostile, threatening to harm me, that's not what I call a friend.

Maybe you want to explain to me how that is a friend?

Keep your enemies close, as they show you your faults.. my fault is doing what Ron paul asked all of us to do. Is that what you mean by friendship?

Now Ron Paul is saying, "Do what you want." (and suffer the consequences) Well, I want to continue my committment. That is important to me, to keep the committments I make and not run when the going gets tough, and I have tough decissions to make. Friends back you, even when they don't agree. You want to FORCE GJ on me, and that's not cool.

Ron Paul is NOT endorcing GJ. GJ is NOT my candidate even if Ron Paul never ran for president.

And your alternative

And your alternative is......?

My alternative is ...

My alternative is for GJ to have his own name sake site and for all of his troll followers to go there and live happily ever after.

RickStone

In other words, your only

In other words, your only alternative is angrily pound your fists and curse the darkness. Thanks but no thanks.

I don't see the anger

Rick Stone does not appear angry to me.

It is you who are attacking Ron Paul Repubublicans with insults.

You seem pretty angry to me. You seem to have the hate for the GOP and those who are sticking with it.

Oh yeah.....Rick Stone is a

Oh yeah.....Rick Stone is a real sweetie pie. A shining example for us all of civility and kindness. Let's bask for a minute his love, appeal to reason, and and his desire to always take the high road:

"GJ is nobody without holding onto Ron Paul's coat tails and trying to co op his supporters. If he is that great he should be able to stand on his own, have his own site, his own followers, have his own message and draw his own followers to him. If this were true you would not be here on the Daily Paul. He is weak and has to lean on others for his strength and support"

Are you

a real sweetpie?

Oh yes, and more. I'm a

Oh yes, and more. I'm a regular honey-bun.

LOL

.

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

GJ is nobody,

GJ is nobody without holding onto Ron Paul's coat tails and trying to co op his supporters. If he is that great he should be able to stand on his own, have his own site, his own followers, have his own message and draw his own followers to him. If this were true you would not be here on the Daily Paul. He is weak and has to lean on others for his strength and support. Stop leaning on me and expecting me to give you my support, it will not happen. Give up and go your own way! Be a man and find your own path and stop tagging along behind Ron Paul and in his foot prints. Grow a pair and forget what I think. My path is not your path and never will be.

RickStone

Grow a pair? That's a hoot

Grow a pair? That's a hoot coming from someone who won't stand up and propose an alternative. As LBJ used to say, get off the pot or piss!

What the GJ trolls are...

What the GJ trolls are is the equivalent of a 30 year old man/child living in Ron Paul's basement. It is time to cut the cord, move out into the real world and get a real job. Now that would be a hoot!

RickStone

the winds are shifting

it's not about caving in to the trolling here, it's about boosting a third party ticket and chipping away at the duopoly.

keep in mind who the real target audience is...that large mass of sheeple out there. They will simply not understand writing in RP, but to highlight the flaws of the corrupt dem/repubs and then scream at the system does nothing. They will vote for the lesser of the two.

the only option for us, is to steer them in a direction that benefits us all...and right now, the only person is GJ.

and before you turn around and call me a troll, look over my past posts. I haven't deleted a single one...and do take note that I am a sustaining member. I pay to support this site.

You're awfully good at

You're awfully good at complaining and insulting people you disagree with. You are completely silent, however, when asked to provide an alternative.

You don't get it...

You don't get it, the game is rigged and predetermined. Haven't you been following the election? The government only allows you to vote to placate you into believing that your vote matters and you have some say so in your future. If this wasn't so you would have seen Ron Paul get the nomination or at least been on the ballot. When they can change the rules to anything at anytime, steal your vote and keep moving the goal post when ever you get close, politics and voting is not effective. Review Einstein's definition of insanity and maybe you will understand. It will take severe sacrifices that most people do not want to face or have the courage to make to overcome the the corruption and greed we face. The tree of liberty...

RickStone

Oh....I get what you are

Oh....I get what you are saying but that "tree of liberty approach" would only produce backlash today against the liberty movement. The authorities would like nothing better.

The best approaches to delegitimize state coercion through non-violent educational strategies and that includes building a strong third party. Can the government steal elections? Sure....but if a third party has sufficient support it can bargain from a position of power. I favor organized effort for liberty, whether third party or something else.

Small problem...

The last time a third party president was elected was 1860. Good luck with that, I would rather bet on winning the Mega million lottery. Keep on dreaming and wasting your time and money. If you stop beating your head against the wall it will stop hurting (just a hint). I am sure you won't because you are comfortable living in a dazed dream world and spouting your tired old platitudes. I am out of here, I don't have anymore time to waste on your nonsense. You can go back to your mom's basement and watch tv now.
