Political Class Dismissed - Endorsement: Write In Ron Paul for President

"Up until today, I was planning a lukewarm endorsement of Gary Johnson. I have voted for the LP candidate for President since 1976 when I was a liberal Democrat. Up until 2004, the LP always nominated a libertarian including some fine men who I was privileged to know including Dave Bergland, Ron Paul and Harry Browne. In 2008, the LP decided to go pragmatic and nominate a fellow traveler. The tactic failed. They did the same this year with Gary Johnson.

Now, believe it or not, I’m a pragmatist on strategy and tactics so I’m open to a big tent approach and was willing to overlook some departures from doctrine. The straw that broke the camel’s back was FEMA. Romney’s hedging on FEMA was a great chance for Johnson to get some traction at the end. My prior efforts to infuse some creativity into the boring Johnson campaign failed but I’m a rather stubborn person. So I googled the issue, assuming that Johnson was once again asleep at the switch and had failed to notice the opportunity to blast the liberal big government progressive hollow man.

I was right in a sense. In fact, Gary Johnson himself endorsed FEMA, a horrendous agency that has no constitutional basis and whose main function is to stop private sector rescue efforts after storms and disasters. I, myself, have blasted FEMA so that was that. The dalliance is over."

Thanks for awareness regarding GJ's endorsement of FEMA.

Was not previously aware of that. For anyone who is interested...

'Gary Johnson Would Liberalize Immigration and Drug Laws; But Not Eliminate FEMA'

...In a scrum with reporters after the event Johnson said that he thinks the Federal Emergency Management Agency is an appropriate function for the federal government.

“I do see a role. The whole notion that we do have difficulties. I just want to do all of this in the context of not spending more money than we’re taking in,” he said.

Bump for the update on tallying Ron's vote in states where

he isn't certified. (added to the OP)

He essentially says he will take his county, go in and physically count them, and challenges us to do the same in ours. I do know some in other states who plan to do this.
