Gary Johnson secures place on ballot in Pennsylvania - YES!

HARRISBURG — A state judge Wednesday ruled that Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson will remain on the Pennsylvania ballot for November’s general election.

Commonwealth Court Judge James Gardner Colins determined that Johnson had collected 20,730 valid signatures, just above the threshold of 20,601 signature required by state law for third parties to get on the ballot.

Along with Johnson, the Libertarians will their candidates on the ballot for U.S. Senate, state auditor general, state attorney general and state treasurer.

Tom Stevens, chairman of the Pennsylvania Libertarian Party, said the ruling was a victory in an uphill battle against the Republican Party of Pennsylvania, which had brought the challenge against Johnson.

“Now the voters of Pennsylvania will have an opportunity to have a real choice in who to vote for in statewide and national elections this November,” he told PA Independent.

Still getting excited about the election???? What gives?


Lets see...

Since we all have proof that the RNC and the DNC were rigged, I can't seem to square the circle of how our votes matter. In my view the election is just a distraction for us serfs as the people behind the curtain ready their plans for their next move in the grand chess match.

It really is strange to me that so many people here are outraged by the shameful nomination process but then move right back into arguing about who they should vote for. What am I missing? TPTB made it clear that voting does not matter and they are probably sitting back laughing that no matter what they say or do...the people will STILL revert back to fighting amoungst themselves about things that they should KNOW make no difference anyway.

Very strange

Sorry, Ron Paul's write ins will be counted in PA

that is Ron Paul country. Johnson can't win.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

Sounds familiar

"Johnson can't win."

I'm getting this really weird case of de ja vu. Where have I heard something similiar to that before. Oh thats right... "Ron Paul can't win". Good to see that you're no better than every other hack Republican.

Besides, GJ can win. That's a factually true statement. If a plurality of people voted for him he would win. Will he win? No, almost certainly not. But he certainly can win.

Perhaps what you mean to say is "GJ won't win". But how is that an argument against voting for him anyway?


Does anyone seem to think Johnson is going to win? Or Dr. Paul?

It's not about who wins.

Eric Hoffer

counted not tabulated

want those write-in votes tabulated better be prepared to pay about $5000 per county to have it done.

Now for a fair judge in MICHIGAN where he missed the

deadline by 3 minutes!



...I'm a Pennsylvanian and I'll be voting straight Libertarian ticket.

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

Now, all the Libertarian

Now, all the Libertarian Party has to do is run a real Libertarian candidate next go around. Too bad they wasted this year on Gary Johnson. The Libertarian Party could have made some real headway if they had elected a real Libertarian. First Bob Barr, now Gary Johnson, what is the Libertarian Party thinking?

You seem woefully misinformed

You seem woefully misinformed for a Libertarian... if you are indeed one.

wow that is outstanding, suck

wow that is outstanding, suck it RNC

They're ruining 2016 and they don't even know it...or, maybe they do!

You think gitmo gary is the reason romney will lose?

Yeah, thats what they want you to think...you are NOT too dumb to understand this, you are fabricating this lie, now, to quiet the sleeping giant.

Ron Paul brought us to the dance.

Don't you get tired of spamming the boards...

...with this bullcrap? Why is it so shocking to you that (l)ibertarians would vote (L)ibertarian when there is no other (l)ibertarian on the ballot? How about you go down to the pond and yell at the ducks for liking water?

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

good. Burn Romney burn...

good. Burn Romney burn...

the best part

Ronald Hicks Jr., a Pittsburgh attorney for the Republican Party of Pennsylvania, said the Libertarians got on the ballot by overwhelming the review process that gave limited time for the GOP to review and challenge all signatures.

So what Mr Hicks said is a tireless irate minority keen on liberty overwhelmed the mighty GOP machine.

Damned right!

Even those of us writing in Ron Paul volunteered and helped recruit others to take part in fighting those republicans who were behind this. I wonder if this asshole Hicks knows how many Ron Paul republicans were sitting there working to keep the Libertarians on the ballot? It was wonderful knowing the corrupt scum were wasting their money. Truth be told they are so out of touch that it never occured to them that even had they gotten the LP off the ballot it would not mean jack shit to Romneys totals.

you redneck

for real?
