Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson could pull as much as 6% of the vote in a hypothetical three-way match-up with Mitt Romney and President Obama. Johnson began the 2012 race running for the Republican nomination but has wound up carrying the libertarian banner and could gain ballot access in several states.

Report from Examiner.com:

According to a new poll out yesterday by Public Policy Polling, if the election for the President of the United States was held this past week, Libertarian Party Candidate Gary Johnson would receive 6% of the Republican vote, with 75% of the nation not knowing who Johnson is. This is far better than the 2% he was receiving when running as a Republican last year. Johnson changed from the GOP to the Libertarian Party late last December as his campaign lacked traction under the banner.

The same poll asked participants to answer if the elections were held today and the contest was between Barack Obama and Ron Paul, Obama received 47% of the vote with Paul receiving 42% of the vote and 10% undecided.

Largely a failure by the national media, keeping Johnson out of the light, most Americans have never heard of Gary Johnson even though he was a popular a two-term Governor of New Mexico. Romney and Obama receive constant coverage on local and national news and coverage of Johnson is rare which would explain why Johnson is not well-known amongst the population.

The libertarian wave is catching new height this year, especially on the Republican side. I still have doubts as to whether Johnson could carry this to November since I imagine many of his supporters would likely be voting against Obama and wouldn’t want to be perceived as helping Romney lose. You can bet that the Romney campaign will take this seriously since a few percentage points could be enough to swing a tight race.

  1. Johnson has just announced that he’s running for the Libertarian NOMINATION. He’s not the candidate yet.

    Ron Paul should put his hat in the race. It is not unprecedented for a candidate to be the standard bearer for more than one party.

    If Paul gets the nomination for the Libertarian party AND Americans Elect, who needs the two major parties?

    • Goethe Behr — can you show this as true?

      “It is not unprecedented for a (presidential) candidate to be the standard bearer for more than one party.”

      Since if so, would like to propose some possibilities.

      thanks

      • In 1896, William Jennings Bryan was the nominee of the Democrats, the Populist Party, and the Silver Republicans.

        In 1900, Bryan was nominated by the Democrats and the “Fusion Faction” of the former Populist Party.

        I think there were others.

        • Bryan,”The nation is of age and it can do what it pleases; it can spurn the traditions of the past; it can repudiate the principles upon which the nation rests; it can employ force instead of reason; it can substitute might for right; it can conquer weaker people; it can exploit their lands, appropriate their property and kill their people; but it cannot repeal the moral law or escape the punishment decreed for the violation of human rights.”

          • Billy Malone —

            Think this is his best quote:

            “The nation is of age and it can do what it pleases; it can spurn the traditions of the past; it can repudiate the principles upon which the nation rests; it can employ force instead of reason; it can substitute might for right; it can conquer weaker people; it can exploit their lands, appropriate their property and kill their people; but it cannot repeal the moral law or escape the punishment decreed for the violation of human rights.”

            • I think it was a bit much for the dumb voters to comprehend at the time. The voters went on to elect an anti war guy who had never served in the military. He cost the country something like 120,000 American lives and set up the ground work for a big war to follow.

              Woodrow Wilson: “No one but the President,” he said, “seems to be expected … to look out for the general interests of the country.” He developed a program of progressive reform and asserted international leadership in building a new world order. In 1917 he proclaimed American entrance into World War I a crusade to make the world “safe for democracy.”

            • World War I was the stupidest war in history, based on the lives lost–AND the fact that it had no meaning or purpose. The European powers were just sucked into it because of stupid alliances they had.

              I think it could be said that the U.S. saw which way the war was going, and just piled on.

            • But WWII was even dumber with FDR at the helm. Even if I give you Pearl as the reason, there were 150,000 men, 125 birds of war and 42 ships that held off for 9 hrs just waiting for the go sigh to unleash hell on Japan’s military following Pearl attack.

              Oh hell was unleashed alright, at the end of the 9th hour Japan destroyed most of the American ships and planes as they sat on the ground & in the harbor just like at pearl. The go sign never came from FDR as his priority was to protect the American shores rather than to destroy the enemy. Think a prior military man would have thought the same way had he been commander and chief? FDR cost us over 400,000 American lives because of his incompetence.

            • Billy:

              I was talking about the war in General. The idiocy and insanity of WW I, compounded by an even meaner and stupider resolution (Wilson had told the Kaiser he’d get a break if Germany stopped fighting, and the other Western allies double-crossed him).

              That led to horrible conditions and hostility in Germany, which led to Hitler–and the horror of Hitler made World War II inevitable. And I think it could be said that WW II was the only war in the 20th Century that was necessary.

              But, again, if World War I had been avoided or ended in a sane way, I don’t think the “Big One” would have occurred.

            • For sure but my point was Japan could have been crushed or at least contained in a few hours had we had a man at the helm with just military basic training. Ron Paul knows well who get treated first when the battle begins and you may not want to know. There is a sound reason for this but it ain’t pretty.

      • In 1872, Horace Greeley was nominated by the Democrats and also by the Liberal-Republican Party.

        • Goethe Behr —

          Thanks for these references.

          My research shows that some won a party’s nomination, and were endorsed by another also — but nothing definitive as to anyone winning a nomination by 2 or more parties to run as Presidential candidate.

          Would, therefore, your “the standard bearer of more than one party” be a weak link in an argument I’d like to postulate?

          thanks    

           

          • Surf:

            I was only able to find candidates who had lost, even though they were nominated by more than one party.

            I’m also wondering how the votes would be counted. That is, if RP got 30% of the total votes via America Elects and 6% from the Libertarians, would they consider that 36% of the total vote, or would they count the American Elects/Ron Paul votes as a different candidate from the Libertarian/Ron Paul?

        • Goethe Behr — thanks for the help in this. Here is what I’ve come up as a result. Let me know your take.

          Ron Paul MUST stay on course — keep up the uphill battle to win as many delegates as possible (that the GOP does not prevent him to do, by their obvious chicanery)!

          Ron Paul needs to take Rmoney to Tampa.

          Then, the PERFIDY of the GOP will be Nationally telecast (hundreds of thousands of Real Americans supporting the only Patriot (RP), vs a few hundred mousey sycophants for Mitt Grosny, will be hard to dismiss)! ——————————————

          The American People have long known that the Democrat Party cheats and lies — so they are used to their chicanery (the reason, many call them Democrooks). It is high time that they NOW see the GOP is no different — the Republicons fraud, cheating and strong-arming to “elect” Mitt Grosny, may finally have a televised exposure!
          ———————————————–

          After the Tampa Convention — which will probably be the most memorable of spectacles this last 50 years — Ron Paul should take the best path that assures he’ll be part of the Presidential debates vs BO.

          Ron Paul MUST be part of the Presidential debates — so, people can judge the difference between a real Human and plastic sub-humans! ———————————————-

          It is not unprecedented for a candidate to be the standard bearer for more than one party (I think in 1896, William Jennings Bryan was the nominee of the Democrats, the Populist Party, and the Silver Republicans; and I believe in 1872, Horace Greeley was nominated by the Democrats and also by the Liberal-Republican Party).

          • Surf:

            First, was that a typo, or did you intentionally call him “Rmoney”? Either way, I love it.

            Second, I think Grosny is a little obscure, though.

            Third, I think you’re giving the GOP way too much credit if you think they’ve been less corrupt than the Dems. Plenty of examples on both sides. Indistinguishable.

            Fourth, I still don’t believe the establishment (including the media) will allow anything untoward to happen at the GOP convention. The real news will be when the “occupy” movement disrupts the Democratic convention, a la 1968.

            Fifth, you don’t mention which parties Ron Paul might be nominated by. You just say “more than one.” I think you need to specify Libertarian and/or Americans Elect–in addition to (I assume) the GOP, which I think is your suggestion.

          • Goethe Behr —

            thanks for the reading and notations.

            1) Rmoney — intentional (word play, that works so far).

            2) You are right — obscure: so, Mitt Grosny — Romney The Terrible.

            3) Agree they are the same — just do not think Americans have yet to be TRULY exposed to the GOP perfidy (thus the dig), mostly have seen the Democrooks so far….

            4) You are probably right — but with the expected 1000:1 Ron Paul supporters vs Mitt Grosny’s in Tampa…it could become “news worthy” and think it will (the r3volution may just start there)! LOL

            5) Unsure if I wanted to specify — but now I think you may be correct!

            Thanks

            • Surf:

              For the last point, since you’re speaking to the GOP faithful, you might go a different direction. That is, that there have been times when a third party arose and wiped out the second party. For instance, the Whigs disappeared, but the Republicans took their place. There are other examples.

              The idea is that the Libertarian movement could wipe out the GOP, if TeaPartiers and Libertarians joined forces, utilizing the America Elects ballot spot that will probably be in all states by the fall.

              I think your idea was to warn the GOP to pick Ron Paul or perish. Screw ’em. Let ’em perish.

          • Goethe Behr —

            You are 100% correct — but I do not want to expose this as of yet! Just want to keep it as you wisely stated the first time: “It is not unprecedented for a candidate to be the standard bearer for more than one party.”

            And leave it at that for now — afterwards, as events unfold, add to it as needed….

            Hope you understand (not a good idea to reveal one’s cards at the opening…and I think the game is just beginning to get interesting).

  2. The 6% could hand Obama the election and it’s something that needs to be considered. 6% isn’t enough to win to put Obama out of office. Realize that our freedom is at stake here and to understand what the prize is.4 more years of the Obamanation in this country and we won’t have a chance to vote again. Think clearly when voting.It would be great to get a constitutionalist in the White house but we can’t afford to lose our freedom.

    • mg67 —

      BO is a shoo-in if Mitt is elected to run against him.

      So, concentrate to have Rmoney withdraw from the election in favor of Ron Paul. At this stage only Ron Paul can defeat BO — and no-one else!

      • Have to wonder how The Mitt got to where he is as both Johnson & Huntsman certainly have much better track records.

        • The Republican Party nominates the guy who was number two last time. Period.

          That’s why we end up with candidates who are really “number two.”

  3. Nate, wondering if the statement “Largely a failure by the national media, keeping Johnson out of the light,…” could be clarified. What do you mean by failure? What do you mean by largely? Failures are results of wrong choices/decisions/ mistakes, inaccuracies, bad timing, faulty mechanics or faulty calculations, or the success of competitors. Failure doesn’t apply to the Controllers actions. Maybe more accurate to say by success of the national media, Johnson was kept under wraps. Wasn’t that a decision by the Controllers? Obviously the MSM intended to buckle his knees and their process was successful. They think they are gaining control of the country, not just of their chosen candidates like Willing $Willard. Their motivation in plowing ahead for their new candidate probably is to escape public discovery of their part in directing Obama to cover his documents. (Where are our investigative reporters?) Selecting a different presidential candidate who has agreed to obey like Obama has, they think they will escape detection. Ice is getting thin, fellas. There is something called blowback, and backfire, that 360’s their efforts. Ron Paul will be elected President of the USA by We The People.

  4. Gee I don’t know what to make of all this……I followed the Calif Governor’s race Meg vs Jerry and it looked like it was going to be close but it wasn’t. It was socialism vs liberty and socialism won big time. Now I know they are crazy out there in Calif but they did get billions from us in the way of Obama pumping up his green energy. So you tell me did they make the right choice in voting for socialism? Is having it handed to you better than working for it?

  5. Call me a tinfoil hat person, but I think part of the reason the MSM is not reporting on Johnson is because once they hear about Johnson’s stance, people disillusioned with Obama will flock to Johnson. Think about why Van Jones recently said Libertarians hate gays and people with brown skin. Just the opposite. Gary Johnson is for Gay Marriage, while Obama has said Civil Unions are sort of okay, but he’s doing nothing to get rid of DOMA. Libertarians will never play the race card, because they have the credo of not judging upon religion, race, sexual orientation, age, just solely your actions. Obama’s actions have been to say one thing and do the opposite. And Gary Johnson got 21 ACLU Liberty Torches and Obama got only 16. I think Van Jones was sent out to make those thinking about an alternative to Obama run back to Obama in fear.

  6. Gary Johnson is a brain dead idiot. He has smoked so much pot he doesn’t know where he is half the time. Terrible Gov for the sewer state a/k/a New Mexico.

    • I guess that explains why Obama and Newt are such idiots, as they’ve both smoked pot. At least Johnson has the guts to admit it without back pedaling like a typical hypocritical politician. And taking New Mexico from a $1 billion deficit to a $1 billion surplus and leaving the state with a balanced budget was just so awful of Johnson. *RollsEyesSarcastically*

      • Splitting libertarian votes away from Ron Paul would lessen the chance of getting any libertarian concessions into the GOP platform.

        • Oh, Billy. Really? “The Platform”? When is the last time even one important plank of a platform was not forgotten when the convention was over?

          The platform doesn’t matter, but if he can get delegates, at least he can speak at the convention, and if they don’t put him on at 3 a.m., maybe he’ll have an effect on someone.

          What RP really needs to do is (a) jump into the Libertarian convention, and (b) mobilize his supporters for Americans Elect.

          • Maybe history can forget the last two times an anti-war president with no prior military experience was made commander in chief but I can’t. (Wilson & FDR) Over 500,000 of America’s best killed because of these two buffoons (concerning military judgement)

            As you may well know, FDR tried to cover up the greatest military defeat in the history of our nation by awarding the medal of honor to his general that was directly responsible for said defeat. (sound familiar, reward failure and punish success)

            No, just can’t support Gary as I don’t think he ever served in the military.

            • Gary Johnson:

              He says he supports U.S. military intervention in Uganda to root out the Lords Resistance Army and kill its leader, Joseph Kony. He thinks the drone war in Pakistan and Yemen creates more enemies than it eliminates, but doesn’t want to take drone strikes off the proverbial “table.” He wants to “completely withdraw our military presence” from Afghanistan, but wants to keep our military bases there. In fact, U.S. military bases should be maintained throughout the Middle East, he says, even though America faces “no military threats.” He supports “humanitarian intervention.”

            • fence straddler, No military experience is a lock out item for me. Not that I give brownie points for said service. Just a firm believer in the law of probability.

            • Knowing better:

              My favorite IKE story is that
              Eisenhower is the only President
              who told the Chairman of the Joint
              Chiefs of Staff to go F himself.

            • I’m sure Nixon could have made Ike blush when it came to having a way with words. Anyhow I can’t find much fault with IKE as he ended the Korean war and gave us the Interstate Highway System .

              As for FDR though he should have end up like Mason Verger. (Hannibal Lecter)

            • The difference is that Nixon was a paranoid who hated everybody. Ike had a really good handle on what was important. He knew what the military was for. I gain more respect for him the more I hear about him.

            • Well he certainly didn’t inflict as much damage on this country as some but still way too many died so a few could become rich. Just not a good man for sure. Secret plan to end the war a lie but he did end it a big plus.

  7. “Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson could pull as much as 6% of the vote in a hypothetical three-way match-up with Mitt Romney and President Obama. Johnson began the 2012 race running for the Republican nomination but has wound up carrying the libertarian banner and could gain ballot access in several states.”

    If the above transpires, it is a certainty that Mitt will not defeat BO (with his flip-flopping, he couldn’t defeat him anyway, now this would assure it).

    So he needs to withdraw now in favor of Ron Paul!

    Ron Paul WILL become President in 2012 — IF, Romney becomes a Patriot, and forgoes his ego, for the Good of the People!

    Mitt Romney could become one of the greatest Statesmen in US History! He’d be the Savior of our Nation — the one that generations to come would tell their children: “Look at this statue, this is Mitt Romney, he saved America”!

    Or, he can reduce himself to just a tiny footnote…what is amazing is that his fate rests in his own hands (a very rare occurrence throughout the history of the world)!

    All Romney has to do, is to take advantage of this rarest of historical moments, and make a SINGLE DECISION!!!

    Withdraw his candidacy IN FAVOR of Ron Paul, with the following grandiose and heart-wrenching patriotic speech (to save his political skin):

    “I, Mitt Romney, will sacrifice my political goals for the Good of the People. Now I understand that only Ron Paul that can save our Nation. I agree with all he stands for, therefore, I have deemed that our Nation’s salvation can only be accomplished when Ron Paul is elected as President of the United States of America. Without regret, but with joy, I do the most honorable and patriotic deed I can — I withdraw myself from this election, and give my full support to Ron Paul!”

    One honest person is needed to bring these logical conclusions to Romney’s PERSONAL ATTENTION (not the myopic sycophants surrounding him and stroking his ego by chanting wishful thinking as ‘fact’: “You gonna win Boss, you gonna win Boss….).

    Regardless how egotistical, arrogant and narcissistic Romney may be, some semblance of reasoning of what’s best for him, should still remain in his skull. The instinct for self preservation dictates that even the smallest of minds will chose the path that leads to safety, not the one leading to disaster.

    An honest realist needs to talk to Romney one-on-one — and explain the following to him, so Mitt can comprehend it:

    1) If you don’t win the nomination, than your political career is over (you’ll become just a tiny footnote in US History as a failure).

    2) If you win the nomination, and don’t defeat Obama — which is the most probable outcome (you’ll become just a tiny footnote in US History as an even LARGER failure).

    Therefore, Dear Mitt, whichever gamble you take from the above, may lead to total disaster for your political career (and probably will)!

    However, here is an action you can take, Dear Mitt, that guarantees you’ll become immortalized in the annals of US History — becoming the 21st Century Savior of America (surely this carrot of success will entice Romney’s egotism to go for it — over the probable political beatings he’d receive otherwise)!

    All one needs to do, to assure Mitt’s Historical Greatness of Sacrifice for the Good of the Nation, is to present the above to Romney’s eyes alone! I urge all able to do so, to place this document in front of him!

    Send this to Mitt Romney — as an Open Letter, e-mails, etc. — the more you send, the greater the chance he’ll get to read it!

    • Surfisher, the 3-way scenario sounds like a probability.

      One addition to the footnote: Mormon.
      or
      One addition under his name on the Statue: Mormon.

      Then send copies to each Mormon top rep and each top Bishop, with a cc to Willard.

      • Fight! —

        BO is a shoo-in if Mitt is elected to run against him.

        So, concentrate to have Rmoney withdraw from the election in favor of Ron Paul.

        At this stage only Ron Paul can defeat BO — and no-one else!

        • Surf:

          I hate to say it, but you’re dreaming. Even if you could convince Willard on an intellectual level, there’s no way he’d quit after running for YEARS, and focusing his whole life on it.

          More importantly, he has the entire Republican establishment lining up behind him. And the media are happy to move on to the final horse race, so why would he think there is any way he could lose the nomination?

          Ron Paul can continue to battle in the primaries, in the hope that they’ll give him a speaking slot at the convention, but if there were ANY state where Willard might lose, he’d have the polling data and pour all the tens of millions he could muster into it, and no matter what anyone says, elections can be bought, especially primaries.

          The only hope to stop Willard was to siphon off delegates in ANY other direction, and now there’s only Newt (who has as much as conceded) and Paul, whose staff has no idea how to run a strategic campaign.

        • Surfisher, I agree that only RP can beat BO. BO has Commie power backers that tell him what to do. RP knows how to deal with them. Those commies have promoted Willing Willard, such a greedy creep he will do anything for money and power so he would be easy to control. They don’t care if O or if Willing Willard wins. Same-Same.

          G’nite all.

          • Yep, a win-win either way if you have the know how to put yourself in such a position. But again, how would anyone chose Willard over Gary or Jon. Mitt’s record as governor stinks when contrasted to either Gary’s or Jon’s. How do they make a jackass look like a thoroughbred?

  8. Back to Gary Johnson. . .

    He is the presumed Libertarian candidate. And it would be awkward for Ron Paul to throw his hat in the ring now. For one thing, it would look like he gave up on the GOP run. More importantly, if he ran and for some reason lost, it would be an ignominious end of his political career.

    SO–Libertarians have two weeks to DRAFT Paul. That way, he would just be “answering the call,” rather than looking like he thought he “deserved” it.

    LIBERTARIANS: Two weeks to DRAFT Ron Paul.

    • Ron Paul will never leave the GOP now. His son is now embedded and if Ron Paul ditches the GOP, his son Rand will pay the price and will never become a potential GOP presidential candidate. In a way, you can say the GOP has Ron Paul’s son as a hostage.

      • Elizabeth:

        I’m not so sure of that. Rand has made his own way.

        I’ve seen interviews of Republicans who said they thought Ron was nuts, but Rand doesn’t get that response. I don’t think there’s anything Ron could do at this point that would further alienate the GOP establishment.

        Besides, according to GOP routine, Santorum should be the 2016 candidate. There will be a lot of people looking for somebody, anybody else. The party could rally around Rand the way they could never bring themselves to do for Ron.

        • Better leave Rand out of this as you well know which state holds the dubious distinction as being 50 out of 50 when it comes to smarts. (My GF is from Ky but no problem with this post as she can’t read)

          • Now, THAT is funny!

            My wife is an east TN hillbilly, on both sides of her family. They can ALL read! They can read “revenoo-er” and “12-guage”.

            Me, I’m just west TN cotton-pickin’ trailer trash.

      • If Ron Paul would go independent as 3-th candidate, how much votes would he win? Maybe he would win and become president?

          • Billy:

            I’m not so sure. There are a LOT of anti-war folks who are very disappointed in Obama. That whole faction could go for RP.

            The RP campaign is a bunch of amateurs, well-meaning as they may be. Paul has very specific programs. Those programs should have been packaged and SOLD to specific constituencies. That’s how coalitions are built–appeal to each constituency on THEIR terms. As long as you don’t have contradictory programs, you do fine. People won’t care who else he pleases.

            So who else? Obama has been hard on drug issues. There are a lot of Obama supporters who would prefer RP’s stands on the issue. Likewise, gay rights. There are a lot of gays who feel that Obama has betrayed them–like supporting DOM. There are a lot of individual constituencies who might decide on at least a protest vote for RP. And if you get enough groups casting a “protest” vote, you suddenly have a winner.

            If RP ran third party, he could take a huge bite out of the Obama vote. He wouldn’t have any impact on Willard, since RP and Willard have really no issues in common (except when Willard temporarily flip-flops, of course).

            • Yeah but it all comes with a cost: Drugs, all drugs are a gateway to more bad things, an easy cop out for bad parents and bad parents vote.

              Gays: Bible voters vote and the don’t like gays .

              Pro Life vs Pro Choice: RP says that is up to the state & that just ain’t good enough for voters on both sides.

              Foreign occupation: Even my GF (the one that can’t read) thinks we have to be in most of the 126+ countries we are now in but when asked to name one she says “Gatlinburg”. Okay, I’ll give her that one. ??????

              Get the picture as I see it anyhow?

            • Billy: You’re hilarious.

              I don’t know how much to believe about your GF, but I hope you’re keeping your comments together somewhere. Turn it into a book about things she’s said.

              Oh, and, you know, don’t forget pictures. . .

            • These blogs do take away a lot of Q time, she does know that.

              My wife use to cut the cords on the computer. Always hoped she would get the 120v one but she never did. Loved her dearly though.

            • Billy: From what you’ve said about GF, maybe she wouldn’t know a 120V cable if she saw it. Maybe you ought to run metal conduit to your CPU. I’m thinking there’s something about GF that makes her well worth keeping around. . .

            • 4 yrs and counting, she plays those crazy games on the laptop I got her. Sure beats all those eating out dinner bills, LOL She is going to vote for Newt, Haven’t had the heart to tell her yet as I know she doesn’t have a plan “B”.

    • Romney should not have even been allowed on the same stage as Johnson in looking over their track records. However a black politician from Chicago was allowed on the same stage as Hillary. A real joke, wasn’t it? (that is if you are not an American)

  9. 6 % it is a little bit bad result to win presidential election. It is a loughing stock there.
    Ron Paul is the best presidential candidate. He has the best program, the best proposals and he will restore USA, he will really restore prosperity and peace. He should win. I don´t understand this whole problem.

  10. Why doesn’t everyone just ASK Gary Johnson a question in order to form an informed position regarding what ever issue you’re concerned about. He’s having an online town hall next week on Tuesday. Here’s the FB event page: http://www.facebook.com/events/210790345703915/

    The great thing about his town halls is that there are no handlers screening out the hard questions, so no issue off topic. You want to know about his position on immigration, the Fed, and quantitative easing, woman’s choice, gay marriage, fiscal policy, civil liberties, student debt, anything, ask it. Now, the online town halls are hosted on Yowie, and you’ll have to register with Yowie in order to ask a question, but Yowie at least doesn’t spam. But, if you register, you can ask any question you want. But, no registration with Yowie required to watch. NO REGISTRATION NEEDED TO WATCH. So just go to http://www.garyjohnson2012.com at 6pm PT/ 9pm ET on Tuesday May 1st to watch the online town hall.

  11. Take Vincent Reda to Small Claims Court NOW!

    Vincent Reda will be eventually taken to criminal court, but it may take a year or more before the case is heard.

    Anybody can take anyone for nearly any reason to Small Claims Court, and usually the case is heard in less than 2 months (in some counties 30 days). You are not filing for a Law Suit, but a CLAIM Only (claiming a wrong and placing a Dollar Value on your perceived Loss). Once the hearing is scheduled — the Judge has to hear the case! If he/she deems your claim has no merit, you lose — if not, the Judge may award you a lower dollar amount.

    Regardless of the outcome — it’s a WIN, since the point is to drag this low-life through the mud ASAP, not much, much later (for all such creeps to watch and learn NOW)!

    Here is the beauty of this ploy (since the defendant (Reda) must show up on the given date and time — if he doesn’t, you win your claim, and he has to pay you the amount! Or, get special permission from the court, to excuse his absence in person — he may be FORCED to establish phone communication during the hearing — and have his lawyers represent him):

    1) If a thousand people file such a claim — and Reda does not show up, he’ll be broke financially.

    2) If allowed by court to have only lawyers represent him — he’ll have to hire hundreds of them, to be present when many cases would be on the same, or close to the same, day when the hearings are set! That will also be a financial burden!

    Hope all New Yorkers, that were disfranchised from voting by the LIE of Vincent Reda, file a Small Claims Court CLAIM against him — the creature needs to be penalized for his perfidy!

    Share this — if many more than a Thousand people file a Small Claim, this Clown will truly be put through a Circus!

    —————————————————
    One could claim an emotional distress that upon hearing, from a trusted official, that your candidate (say Newt, or Ron Paul) is no longer running according to the phone call, YOU broke down emotionally and stopped eating, sleeping, going to work, etc — LATER (after the voting was over) You found out it was all a Lie. And now, you are even more emotionally distressed since you lost your right to vote, because of the false statements. You put a $$$ TOTAL on your Claim (with the exact name and address of Vincent Reda) — and submit it in Small Claims Court.

    Here is the proof you need in Court: his actual phone message LIE!

  12. Romney and Obama are actually clones —

    “Claim scientists at Rothdale’s laboratory in Lead’s, Ireland who publicly announced yesterday that both men were actually cloned in the King’s College – Chicago University experiments of 1956. ”

    For all of those that have kept on stating, and warning the American people, that Romney = Obama — now you have this video to back you up!

    Share it — funny stuff…sadly!

  13. What did this young girl do, to get the Dogs-of-State to pursue and knock her of her bike brutally to the ground, and then maul her into painful submission?

    Watch carefully the chronological order (FREEZE picture at the time count given below — to see why):

    1) 0:32 — one of the Dogs-of-State signals the rest that he’s seen a cyclist taking a picture of “SOMETHING THAT MUST NOT BE SEEN”! So they run in pursuit.

    2) 0:44 — she is dragged down by two Dogs-of-State

    3) 0:51 — many more “Gang-of-Brothers” arrive surrounding their victim being mauled on the ground

    4) 0:57 — see the hand taking her cell phone away from her

    5) 1:10 — she manages to free one hand

    6) 1:11 — she tries to pass it in desperation to the people outside the circle of about a dozen Dogs-of-State trampling her rights

    7) 1:12 – 2:03 — she is still screaming in pain…but no-one can help her (since the AGGRESSORS, The Dogs-of-State are ARMED, and thus can inflict pain AT WILL on the disarmed, peaceful citizens)!

    And more abuses follow!

    This is the MOST DISTURBING VIDEO I’ve seen taped on American soil!

    DISGUSTING is mild — words fail me to describe my feelings on this OUTRAGE — watching the ‘US KGB’ MAUL and ABUSE a young girl!

    Don’t know what you’ll do about it — but I’m sending this to Judge Napolitano, the ACLU, News Media outlets, and even contacting my Lawyers to look into filing a civil case against these SS Troopers (hopefully pics can be enlarged so their badge numbers can be seen)!

  14. Shocker In Tampa — Ron Paul Wins!
    ————————————–

    These WILL be the headlines next day — here is why:

    According to RNC Rule #38 — at the Tampa Convention NONE of the Delegates are ACTUALLY Bound! Delegates can vote according to their own judgment and conscience — and are NOT bound to vote according to how most delegates from their state vote.

    Precedent was set in 2008 Utah by Legal Council for the RNC (stating: The RNC does not recognize a state’s binding of national delegates, but considers each delegate a free agent who can vote for whoever they choose).

    Also, the Republican (and Democratic) Parties are Private Organizations — so voting within a party is NOT bound by Election Law!
    ——————————————————

    What does this mean? It clearly shows that ANY or ALL delegates can abstain from voting in the 1st round. Or in other words — Bye-bye Mitt !!!

    What do we need to do? Push for as many more delegate wins for Ron Paul as humanly possible — so a Ron Paul victory in Tampa is assured!

    But most importantly NOW — SHARE this information (spread it like wildfire)!

  15. I am not sure if I completely buy the logic that a vote for Gary Johnson is a vote for Obama. The Dems currently represent the only alternative to the Religious Right. Those that oppose the Patriot Act and efforts to ban gay marriage have been left with little choice but to vote Democratic. Johnson actually gives those people who are socially liberal a choice. If Johnson gets any media coverage whatsoever, some “Blue Dog” Democrats may actually defect to support Johnson, instead of voting for Obama by default.

    • I agree completely.

      If Gary is at 6%, he would easily get 15% if Ron Paul supports him. That would get him onto the debate stage, according to the rules.

      I am not sure about Gary, but I know that Ron Paul’s support and Obama’s support overlap greatly. Anti-war. Anti-drug war. Freedom in sexual matters.

      Ron Paul and Slick Willard don’t have ANYTHING in common. If Gary runs well, he’s not going to take anything from Rmoney. He’ll deduct from Obama.
