Washington Times Blog: Gary Johnson: On fire for freedom in third party debate

by Danny de Gracia

WAIKIKI, October 23, 2012 — America owes Larry King a debt of gratitude for giving an audience to third parties tonight. Rocky Anderson, Virgil Goode, Jill Stein and Gary Johnson all come from differing ideologies and have vastly contrasting visions of reform, but share the united belief that America deserves better than the two party system.

Tonight, everyone who participated in the third party debate was truly a winner. We witnessed a perestroika of American politics as candidates who had been suppressed by partisan stratification and media lockout spoke with palpable emotion and deep seated sincerity. As someone who voted absentee for Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson, I was especially moved by the former New Mexico governor’s incredible tour de force rebuke of the ongoing war in Afghanistan, the post-9/11 security state, the inability of the two parties to balance the budget and cut spending and the need to put morals back in the lap of families and local communities instead of government.

Johnson has always been an inspiring public figure and an adept orator, but tonight we saw the “bingo” moment for the Libertarian Party with him on fire for freedom and speaking boldly and unrestrained about the need to vote on principle. So stunning was Johnson's debate performance that I was quickly reminded of Ron Bloom's epic 1988 liberty anthem In Your Eyes - tonight, America could clearly see the love of freedom shining in his eyes.

And Ron Paul is on fire in California!

It's supposed to be announced tomorrow that RON PAUL has 55 ELECTORS in CALIFORNIA and should be on the OFFICIAL CERTIFIED LIST OF WRITE-IN CANDIDATES but the post that ANNOUNCED this most IMPORTANT INFORMATION is NOT on the FRONT PAGE or even in the STICKY BOX!!! And to ADD INSULT TO INJURY - the link isn't even referencing the TITLE of the post which is WAY TO GO, CALIFORNIA! and instead it's called

http://www.dailypaul.com/260050/say-hello-to-my-little-friends

'hello my little friends'???
What kind of obfuscation is that? I would expect this of the lamestreammedia, but NOT the DP. All the other thread links use the subject of the thread in the link EXCEPT this one as far as I have checked. Is the DP DELIBERATELY TRYING to eliminate all possibility of having Ron Paul getting more votes because of its new found love for gj? Makes me wonder.
Please go to the link and bump and plus it a top post so those Californians who may wander to this page will see it.
Shame on the DP mods for BLACKING-OUT this most important information from the masses.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

Okay

I guess I'll have to write a letter to the editor of my local paper about Gary Johnson and his positions.

My PennySaver ad for "free Gary Johnson yard signs" has already been productive, turning up some Ron Paul supporters, as well as a lady whose brother in law is named Gary Johnson (she wanted to surprise him, having had no idea that a Gary Johnson was running for president--maybe she and the family will, now).

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

It's downright CRIMINAL

and could likely be cause for a RICO lawsuit against these polling companies who will not even enter Gary Johnson's name into the running. I can't find him on any of the national poll sites.

From the comments on that times article - 98% support Gary Johnson. Hello? Talk about a complete snowjob? You can be assured it is VERY likely Gary Johnson might be getting as much as 1/3rd or more of the national polling numbers - people are probably saying "Gary Johnson" when called and are being told he is not one of the "allowed choices."

Good news is

Two GJ lawsuits are still active (against the comission on presidential debates + dems and gop parties).
Potentially GJ can win tens of millions of dollars in damages for not being included in the debates.

I will keep everyone here informed as this goes along to possibly a jury trial.

3 Daily Paul members down-voted this post so far

Can you at least have a courage to explain what you disagree with so strongly that it caused you to down-vote?
All I ask is comments explaining why.

Unless you are Romney supporters then no explanation is needed and I accept your silence.

you know, double l...

you and I have common ground even on this issue

we will both keep the gop from getting our votes...you, by supporting a third party and me, by a non voting process

romnie gets 35%, mission accomplished

we'll have our person in 2016, the people will choose them just like they did in this cycle with Dr. Paul

will they/we be cheated again? will revolution or false flag come before that?

there is a new awakening in America...the genie won't go back into the bottle!

and, fyi, I did not down vote you...just more people like me!

Thanks Ecorob.

We have a few disagreements but I have great respect for you.
Over the years I saw you donating to Money Bombs and posting informative material and being a good freedom fighter.
America needs more Ecorobs.

Enjoy your evening!

Daily Johnson and Top Post

LL, This website is not the Daily Johnson. Since Paul is not on the ballot next month, I am delighted to see articles about other Liberty Candidates.

I wish there were more of them and not just articles on GJ.

And please, please, please put links to articles near the top of your posts. It sucks having to leave the front page, scroll down to click and then have to go back to the front page. My phone tends to cache old copies of the front page.

Steve

Come on now.

Do you know of another Presidential candidate that is better positioned to carry the message of Liberty than GJ? Recommend one. Maybe it's time for many of us to get over our petty squabbles and start looking at the big picture. I honestly don't comprehend the anti-Johnson sentiment from any true supporter of Ron Paul/freedom. It could be mental illness or perhaps maybe just pride.

Thank you Jacobcartier

I could not say it any better.

The Liberty Movement has to move forward and not dwell on the past.

Thanks Steve

I was a moderator here on the Daily Paul for a few years and the way posts are supposed to be posted here is exactly how I do it -- placing a link to the source at the bottom and not at the top.
Owner of the DP guidelines.

As to the name of the DP.
It was changed after the RNC took place.
Look at the top left corner.

Nothing about any particular person.

Above the fold

LL,

I couldn't care whether the link is at the top or bottom, just so long as it's above the fold. Links below the fold make going to the source a lot more time consuming for iphone users.

Thanks again for all your hard work towards Liberty.

Steve

Thank you for the feedback Steve

It means a lot to me.
