Gary Johnson Disses Ron Paul, Father of Modern Liberty Movement, Says a Vote for Him is "Meaningless"

It's as if someone had carried you across miles of wilderness, to make the liberty message mean something which was finally heard around the world, after years and even decades of mockery, vitriol, and vicious personal attacks to make you pay for your refusal to pander. To play ball like the rest of us. Then when he is shunted aside by the most sustained campaign of dirty tricks imaginable, to call any remaining support for him "meaningless." Why? Because you are a crass politician who would sell his own mother for a vote.

Johnson said in an online forum:

As much as I support Ron Paul I think writing in his name will effectively be meaningless. Count on me to be a military non-interventionist. I think Kony could have been more effectively dealt with by letters of marque and reprisal.

Since Gary Johnson has exactly the same chance of winning as Ron Paul does - zero - even if Paul scores many write-in victories, then a vote for Johnson is just as meaningless from this perspective.

What is not meaningless is the clarity of Ron Paul's message, as the only member of congress, besides, in fairness, Dennis Kucinich, to stand up and loudly defend our rights and to oppose NDAA. Everyone knows what Ron Paul stands for, because he has paid for his convictions dearly. How then is any vote for him "meaningless?"

Ron Paul's write-in votes will be counted and duly reported out in the states of AL, IA, WI, PA, CA, VT, NH, DE, RI, ME, and now MO. California's electoral votes alone impact the election hugely, and a strong Ron Paul vote there will be noticed.

Ron Paul may not be able to win. Just the same as Gary Johnson, unless the man is truly insane, which would put him in the company of the major party candiates. No expression of a voter's free will and choice of message to send is "meaningless" just because it does not further the career of Gary Johnson.

Did the post say anything about writing him in, in the

states it will not be definitely counted? Dissembling, disinfo, pandering and smoke-blowing. That's what Johnson and his supporters are about.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

Is that collectivism...

why yes, yes it is.

There's alot a Paul supporters that support Johnson as well, be careful painting groups of people with a broad brush.

Beep beep boop beep... I am a Paulbot... prepare for liberty and prosperity!


They may say they are paul supporters but are against half of his platform, as left wing freaks. The GJ supporters take 1/2 of Pauls message but leave he most imprtant things out and compromise with.

GJ supporters are comproMIZERS, nothing more.

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

I would like GJ to answer how KONY is even a threat to the US at all? What does Uganda and Kony have to do with the US, why the need for marque and reprisal, does GJ want to police to world still? Just in a different manner?

I think you're kind of stretching it.

I wouldn't say that's a diss! I'm all for voting your concious, and if you want to write in Ron Paul then thats cool, but I think Johnson is right, as much as it sucks, they're not going to acknowlege RP write ins at all.

Read again slowly, quiz in 10 minutes. Ron Paul's write-in vote

Ron Paul's write-in votes will be counted and duly reported out in the states of AL, IA, WI, PA, CA, VT, NH, DE, RI, ME, and now MO.

Johnson can't win. Send the Ron Paul message in these states. It will be a shot heard around the world which will ring loud and clear.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

Nope. Again...you are wrong.

I and others keep trying to speak truth to the crazed. Write-ins for Ron Paul in most of those states WILL NOT be counted! They will be counted as a vote, but his name will never be mentioned or tabulated. The only way this would happen is to pay people to count every ballot - that doesn't happen quickly or cheaply.

It is disingenuous and somewhat immoral to use the false notion that "Ron Paul write-ins will be counted" to try to convince those without as much knowledge. You know fully well you are lying when you make that claim. Shame on you.

I have no problem with people who want to write in Ron Paul's name, hell I might even do it at that moment. But, to create a campaign in an attempt to take votes from others, all the while clothed in the "Paulier than thou" narcissism, is just plain wrong.

That is fine but in the

That is fine but in the states where the write in votes will not be counted I say vote for Johnson.


I've read it, there's no reason to be condescending, given the fraud we've seen through the primary's, if you want to believe that, then fine.

They could just as

easily, actually more easily, switch GJ votes for Romney or Obama as well. Not as easy to switch a write in vote, but like you said, just as easy to simply dismiss.


I hear ya DZ,... this post is kind of slanderous, given the context of Johnsons remark, it's not fair to equate that he is dissing, or saying Ron Pauls message is meaningless. This reminds me of the kind of thing MSM would do lol.

The OP's point is a total stretch.
