For me, the main reason

is the ensure automatic ballot access for the libertarian party in 2016. I'm not a member of the libertarian party (i don't even particularly like them) and disagree with gary johnson on plenty of things but I'd simply rather three parties than two. In my dreams the libertarians get at least 5% everywhere and automatic ballot access then appoint Ron Paul as party chairman and it goes from there.

I'm voting for Johnson

Even though I can't stand the fair tax.
I'm voting for him because I support the majority of his positions.
And, WE MUST MAKE ROMNEY LOSE!!!
That is the most important thing!
Whatever happens must end in punishment for the GOP!
That is how we take over the GOP!
Force the GOP to NEED Ron Paul supporters!
If they can win without us, they will NEVER nominate a liberty candidate.

If the most important thing to you is Willard losing...

what does it matter who we vote for, as long as it's not Willard?

I don't play, I commission the league.

How are you, a Candidian, voting for GJ?

Can you tell me how I can vote in Canadian elections too? Is this part of the NWO? America form a political Union with Canada?

(((((Granger)))))

This is your low point.
In the video there is an American lady making great points why she is voting for GJ.

You did not bother to click on the video -- pathetic.

If you do not apologize I will never ever talk to you.

She's really cute and means well

But her reasons are really weak, unless she's making a cse for you to cross the border legally to vote.. or she doesn't smoke marijauan or the culture, but it should be legal.. I don't agree, it should be decriminalized.. she wants to sustain the state of CO from pot sales.. she's a liberal, I'm not. She voted for Obama.. like many GJ suppoorters.. they voted for Obama and now they are angry, under the influence of MSM and YouTube and going third party to be marginalized. STOP BEING MARGINALIZED AND FIGHT BACK IN THE GOP.

It's not about Romney!

You have the freedom to not answer my question. You have the freedom to not ever talk to me again.

I think it's a shame that you have stopped supporting those of us who are doing what Ron Paul asked to restore the Republic.. GJ is NOT restoring the Republic.. just regurgitating the same third party argument for open debates and ballot access,, nothing wrong with that, especially if you do not get Ron Paul's message and method of achievement.. but if you do get Ron Paul's message and you want to make it happen.. then to me, you should be supporting Ron Paul Republicans.. he picked the party, we didn't.

We are the ones who are being FORCED to deal with Mitt, and we are.. we havew a mission, a goal and the RNC, and Romney and the MSM will NOT chase us away to GJ or anyone. I'm in this fight without YOU.

Good luck on open debates, I'll continue to work for your freedom to do that and what's more, bring back constitutional government so debates are open.

Ron POaul has a better way than Nader, GJ.. or anyone before. WE ARE THE FUTURE.

Ron Paul asked you

to vote for Romney???

She used the movement for

She used the movement for political gain, now sits in a republican position and like most empty power hungry fools simply wants to hold on to her position. It has been obvious since the first post I read from her. She used you, she used me and well, that's what neocons do. It's their nature.

Ron Paul asked all of us to become delegates

Being a delegate landed me a committee seat (it was a lot of work) to keep the seat, Romney gets my vote. Fine.. I'll get the seat and hold Romney to the constituion.. I'm NOT alone.

"to keep the seat, Romney gets my vote"

Hold on there pal, explain to me how you must vote for Romney in order to keep your seat? All voting in the Presidential election is by secret ballot, so how would anyone ever know who you voted for? : ?

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

My bloot comes in two envelopes

I sign one nevelope and put my ballot in it, and the other, I put the signed enveope with the ballot into, addressed to county clerk registrar.. same person I took the oath,, witnessed me.. I could drop it off at the polling station on election day where the committee treasurer gets to open my envelope and put my card in a special box for walk in ballots.. wo what stops anyone from looking at MY ballot? Their oath?

What?

...why are you voting that way? Never heard of such a thing. Just vote like a normal person, by secret ballot, and none will be the wiser.

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

Great. Please resign

You actually became a delegate for Dr Paul, worked through whatever politico BS to be on a Committee ...

And now you're voting for Romney.

lol man. Really?? For *any* convoluted rationalization??

Especially "losing YOUR committee seat"

Please do liberty movement and America a favor and resign.

With "friends" like you we don't need any more enemies.

No, don't resign

..keep your seat and don't vote Romney.

What am I missing?

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

In my world

there are two partied that have a shot at the electoral college and that's Obama in the Democratic party who has NO Ron Paul Republicans or anyone.. and Romney who does have Ron paul Republicans to deal with, and the constitutionalists, and tea party and oath keepers and evryone who wants to get back to constitutional government, restoring the Republic.. that's the goal and Romney does not stop that goal.. Obama doesn;t deserve to win and Ron paul Republicans deserve the opportunity to Restore America despite Romney.

That makes no sense

Neither Obama nor Romney deserve to win, so let's put that aside. What is the remaining logic of your actions? You say Romney would be subject to some restraint by Ron Paul Republicans, whereas Obama would not. Sure, that's a plausible argument (I don't agree with it, but it's plausible). But, on the other hand, Romney may choose to run again in 2016, which means a liberty candidacy for POTUS will probably have to wait until 2020. Whereas, if Obama wins, we will definitely have a chance at the Presidency in 2016. Also, consider that after 8 years of Romney, the odds of electing a Republican at all for POTUS are very slim, Americans will by that time (rightly) despise Romney and his party (lumping us in with him), and will elect a Democrat. Whereas after another four disastrous years of Obama, a Republican will have a much better chance than presently. I think these straregic considerations FAR outweigh any slight (as in: barely visible, probably imaginary) influence which Paulites might hope to have in a Romney administration.

Returning to your notion that by supporting Romney we Paulites would get some kind of influence over his administration, I would argue it's the exact opposite. If we cave and support Romney, and Romney wins, the lesson which the GOP establishment will learn is that we're a paper tiger, which can be safely ignored in future primaries. Whereas, if we vote Libertarian Party, or some other third option, that makes it plain to Republicans that we will not blindly support their nominee, and that if they want our support they have to move in our direction in a real way on the important issues.

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

granger's world

I'd actually watch that. car crash tv maybe but compelling stuff:D I think you'll come to your senses eventually and I admire you a lot despite disagreeing. In short, I have faith in you.

What's the liberty movement?

The liberty movement is going to die after the election. The LP will fade away as usual as GJ returns to the GOP, C4L will plug along churning out people who learn how to become credential delegates and committee memebers,, those who are working on cammottees will be voting no to unconstitutional issues, resolutions, inniatives and replacing the neocons.. The rEVOLution is in the GOP, the Liberty Movement is anywhere those who are waiting fior Ron Paul to go third party or Indy or anything but the GOP, will be hating, fearing and searching for the next political rock star. I am not voting FOR Romney.. I'm staying on course, while you look for the next sign to wave.

Nothing wrong with waving signs.. I did it for decades.

You should have spent your

You should have spent your time studying Austrian economics and libertarianism. That way you might be able to make an intelligent comment.

Granger, has this problem

Granger, has this problem where she lies pathologically. Just look at how many times she trots out the claim that Ron Paul told us to all join committees and become delegates. Then look at what Ron Paul actually said,

http://www.dailypaul.com/176742/what-it-takes-to-win-ron-paul

"People ask, 'What should I do?'"

"Do whatever you want. Do what you think is important. Everybody is an individual.

The most important thing is the responsibility of yourself and to study and read, and understand it, and how to explain it and convert people. Then, make a decision. Being a participant in Campaign for Liberty is pretty important, and keeping that going, and getting more groups, and more organizations..."

"Our efforts, should, in order to win, what we have to do is continue campaigning for liberty and get more people to agree with us."

Also, check out this part of his speech from UCLA to 10,000 supporters where he says the same exact thing.
http://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=relmfu&v=vKsax4v_k_g

Or, check out this speech from 5 years ago where his message is that the most important thing for people to do is to educate themselves about libertarianism and Austrian economics, and to spread the message to others. This is the same message he has been giving for as long as I've been following him. Granger, for whatever reason, needs to believe that she is doing what Ron Paul wants all of us to do, and anyone who isn't doing the same thing as her is not doing what he wants.

http://mises.org/media/2241/Changing-the-World

For a guy who supposedly wants all of us to join GOP committees, like Granger, you have to wonder why he never mentions it any of the speeches he gives. Not only does he not mention it, he goes out of his way to say that education of yourself and then others about libertarianism is the most important thing you should do, and that you should do what you want as far as politics is concerned.

Granger is a liar, rude, and disrespectful. She thinks that her way is the only way. The sad thing is I have no problem with people joining a committee and becoming a delegate, but she takes it to this despicable level with her constant nonsense, and it makes people question that strategy simply because they don't want to be associated with people like her.

This reminds me of the story

Of the six blind men and the elephant http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJVBQefNXIw

5% gives LP major party status!

The Libertarian Party has a goal of 5-percent.

If they reach that threshold, they become eligible for $90-million in public campaign financing.

LP 2016 -- WINNING!

GOP is a dying party.
Good luck in your efforts to fix it.

If Romney Ryan win this election they will be the main people to lead the GOP in 2016 -- so Rand Paul will be on the outside.

We need to send a clear message to the corrupt GOP -- you can't win without us!

15%

15% to rip off the tax payer to afford a red herring GOP campaign behind a LP button, LIVE on YouTube.. let's surf!

We are breathing new life and giving new blood to the GOP to materialize Ron Paul's message, fighting still... we will not run away because Romney was forced on us. We will prevail because the constitution works, and we're going to exercise it IN OUR PARTY.

Can Romney and his bankers stand to the constitutional drivin body of the GOP? Let's find out. Obama studied to constitution to learn how to break it.. and onlt Romney and Obama are going to get the electoral votes.. I'm sorry. I worked on ballot access and open debates for three elections with Nader and no one was body surfing Nader, eh?

I see no reason why the new blood in the GOP who didn't want Romney would not impeach Romney.. we'd give the MSM something to see... witness history! Enough is enough,.. you;re either with us in this good fight, or running away in the name of issues. Enjoy your flight to marginalized nomand's land, (I've been there and done that my whole voting life, Not anymore) I will continue to fight for constitutional government that affords open debates and ballots.

NOT 15%

5%

90 million dollars will help end the two party system the duopoly.
Perhaps you would wish for this money to go to your GOP or the Pentagon?

Btw GJ wants to cut the Pentagon budget by 43%.
Yep he must be the CFR guy must be with the bad guys LOL.

(((((((((LL))))))))))

Just because he proposes to cut the budget of corporations who are funding other candidates, Romney, Obama, sentaors,, congressional races, is no reason to think he is not CFR.. he has nothing to lose running as a loser. I don't want to end the duopoly.. I want to end the corporatopoly and Restore the Republic to constitutional government freeing open elections and debat es for ALL.

Here's a clue on GJ

SteveMT's picture

At this point Granger,...

there is no reason to think that YOU are not CFR.

Will getting a third party candidate, like Gary Johnson, over 5% of the vote NOT end the duopoly?

Think what you like

Getting GJ over 15% will not end the monopoly playing duopoly which third parties are just part of that machine.

Lol.

My brother in Liberty is going to what everyone else does, He is going to sneak across the border and vote in a State that doesn't have photo ID. Lol.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Now thats funny

Now thats funny right there. But why does he have to sneak across - can't he just use the mail and absentee ballot system? lol
