    Look I understand you want independents, I do too. Virgil Goode is a much better candidate than Mitt Romney and I voted for and donated to Ron Paul. But let’s face facts. Even though Mitt Romney is a liberal moron with a weird religion, at least he was born in the USA, does not get on his knees to Mecca five times a day, and is not a Marxist Communist, which is more than I can say for our Kenyan tribal chief “president” Comrade Obongo.

    If you care about the future of the White Race and our Nation this year we all have to vote Republican, otherwise in four years we will have an economy like Zimbabwe and Sharia law, and gangs of marauding Mexican and African savages will rape every White woman in the country over and over and over again.

    First things first. Get rid of the illegal alien invader Obongo even though we are voting for a liberal moron Republican. Unite as Tea Party conservatives and with the help of Jesus in four or eight years elect a true leader such as Rand Paul, David Duke or Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

    Gary Johnson is doing great. Not so much so for his campaign manager Ron Nielson who would seem to be obsconding with the money that was supposed to be used RIGHT NOW to put Gary Johnson on TV in important battleground states. When 80% of the two million dollars collected goes to a squirmy consultant type, it removes all dignity from the Johnson campaign. Johnson must remove himself from crooks that would pocket the donated money when it should instead be spent to forward the cause of liberty.

    If they’re smart, they’ll have two empty chairs for the ObamaRomney Twins, or cardboard cutouts, and on each question, turn to them for their silence.

    @6 i was thinking it would be funny if they had a similar chair that Clint was speaking to. Perhaps two of them.

    They need to get this on national TV. Even if it is only FSTV, LINK-TV, C-SPAN, RTV, and/or ION TV. More households possible to see it the better.

    DO NOT waste your important vote on TweedleDum or TweedleDUMMER ! Use your vote to send a PROTEST to the CROOKS that run this corrupt system! O and R both WORK for the Oligarchy that controls WALL ST and runs the world. Check the official records Obama and Romney both received their major money from Wall St banksters !!!

    Explaining the left-right paradigm to a co worker!:

    “One party has totally dominated American politics for at least a century: the Socialist War Party. No matter who wins the elections, America gets endless socialism and endless war.” Doug Newman.

    “The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can throw the rascals out at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy. Then it should be possible to replace it, every four years if necessary, by the other party, which will be none of these things but will still pursue, with new vigor, approximately the same basic policies.” – Carroll Quigley from his book Hope and Tragedy-(Bill Clinton said Quigley was his mentor during 1993 Inaugural Address), Quigley is speaking of the (CFR) Globalists’ American political strategy since the early twentieth century.

    What’s the Diff?!:

    It is not the business of government to make men virtuous or religious, or to preserve the fool from the consequences of his own folly. Government should be repressive no further than is necessary to secure liberty by protecting the equal rights of each from aggression on the part of others, and the moment governmental prohibitions extend beyond this line they are in danger of defeating the very ends they are intended to serve. – Henry George

    I think Johnson, Stein and Goode are all really good candidates for their parties this time around (even though Goode is hurting for ballot access). And I think in four years, if he keeps plugging away, Mayor Anderson will be a more viable candidate. It should be a pretty good debate.

    What could spark the breaking of the 2 party system would be if third parties would nominate celebrity candidates for some exciting federal races.

    Third parties need cacique-like leaders who are willing to lead in tough times. A Jesse Ventura or Ross Perot figure if you know what i mean.

    Once you break the 2 party system, if 2 minor parties start breaking above 10%, it’s a new ball game.

    I saw Johnson speak tonight. His appearance tonight was in front of maybe 45 0-600 people at a college campus. He was calm, cool, relaxed, and fun. He cracked jokes at the appropriate times, but also got passionate when talking about a number of vital issues. He really was a great spokesman for the cause in general and for the LP specifically. An all around good appearance and if he’s making 40 appearances just like it, I’m guessing he’s increasing his vote totals.

    Imagine if Gary Johnson could run for President, US Senate and US House at the same time. Could that even be possible??

    I think all of these candidates are just OK. Anderson is making a major mistake with his candidacy though. I really think his Justice Party will be a short-lived experiment that will cease to exists when he retires from politics. He should join the Green Party and run for a major office like Senate, or maybe build a new coalition within the GP to shake up the party officers.

    Johnson is a little bit obtuse in a way. His platform just isn’t as developed as it should be.

    I haven’t really followed Goode much.

    I hope that they at least have a real debate and spend the time attacking one another rather than attacking Obama and Romney.

    There have been quite a few people that have run for both president as well as another office at the same time. I don’t know about three.
