  1. Kyle David Smith

    My name is Kyle David Smith and I am damn proud that I cast my vote for Jill Stein on my Green Party primary ballot in Sutter County, CA. Long live democracy. And let all of us independents and/or third party voters support this lawsuit filed by The Green Party and Libertarian Party to include political groups with enough ballot access to win the 270 electoral votes needed to become president in our national presidential debates!, It is the only way that Greens, Libertarians, Constitutionals, Modern Whigs, Peace And Freedomers, etc.. will ever be seen as viable candidates for the office of president of the United States of America. It’s LONG over due and we all need to make our voices heard NOW! This country is FAR more than simply blue or red. And it’s time that our voices be heard. Not only willour best candidates be see o the national stage for president the trickle down effect will lead to third party candidates be seriously considered for offices such as state senate, congress, governor, treasurer, even on down to city council. We must make a stand NOW while the iron is hot and make the rest of the nation at large listen to our point of view and see us as what we are. Real American citizens that are fed up with the two party duopoly that has ruled this country for far too long. As American citizens who have ideas about government that the two major parties simply will not even address. We are the majority of America people we need our voices to be heard and listened to or our great nation will continue to backslide into perpetual war, economic ruin, educational ignorance for our children and quite frankly a country that soon none of us will be proud to call home anymore. Stand up for third party candidates, support the lawsuit before the Supreme court and DEMAND that your voice as an AMERICAN CITIZEN be HEARD! We can win this fight , we can make our country the envy of the world once again. And no I am not talking about that racist piece of shit Donald Trump. Stand up America and don’t let anyone bully you into accepting the duopoly as the status quote. It doesn’t have to be and can change for the betterment of all Americans!

  2. J.R.Myers for President 2016

    Results from the Oregon IPO Primary Election should be available next week. Later, in July or August, the IPO and the AIP CA and National AIP will officially choose their POTUS & VP nominees. Thanks to all of you across the country who have supported my campaign. To date, I have received more public primary votes (+4,009) in more states (3 – ID, OR, CA) than any other current or former CP candidate. I look forward to the remainder of the campaign(s)!

  3. RedPhillips

    I thought Trump was going to be on the AIP ballot.

    No offense to J.R., but the even spread looks like it might be due to fairly random sorting. I know of Drake, Hoefling and J.R., but don’t know who those other folks are. Are they local CA people?

  4. Richard Winger

    The AIP asked the Secretary of State to put Trump on the AIP primary ballot, but the Sec of State wouldn’t do it, and the AIP did not fight back against the Sec of State. The Sec of State also refused the PFP request that Jill Stein be on the PFP pres primary ballot.

    Separate from that, parties in California may jointly nominate the same pres candidate in November. But I’m sure Donald Trump would refuse to have the AIP nomination along with the Rep nomination, if it is offered by the AIP.

  5. Ctomp

    Richard,

    I know that the PFP has set their nominating convention for August. What about the AIP?

  6. Richard Winger

    The AIP convention date is not yet been set. But AIP officers always choose Sacramento for the location.

  7. Eli Young

    It appears that the AIP , which has a registration of 457,173 statewide, only had 29,822 total ballots cast for the Presidential primary in a highly charged and important political year.

    This means only 6.5% of the AIP even bothered to cast a vote! Terrible.

    Also of note, it is curious that the party’s presidential nominee in 2012, Tom Hoefling, actually came in last in the primary vote. Will the AIP follow this preference poll and actually place Alan Spears on the general election ballot?

  8. William Saturn

    “No offense to J.R., but the even spread looks like it might be due to fairly random sorting. I know of Drake, Hoefling and J.R., but don’t know who those other folks are. Are they local CA people?”

    I don’t know about the others, but James Hedges is the Prohibition Party presidential nominee.

  9. RedPhillips

    “The AIP convention date is not yet been set. But AIP officers always choose Sacramento for the location.”

    Yeah, because sperg Mark Seidenberg thinks the law requires that.
