As November 6th draws closer and closer, undecided voters across the nation are contemplating their selection for President of the United States. Voters in key swing states such as Ohio, Florida, Virginia, North Carolina and Nevada are being bombarded by negative ads making specious and often times absurd claims about Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Unsurprisingly, this barrage of negativity has left both candidates with high unfavorable ratings among registered voters. Read The Full Story
The weekend political chat has been all about Paul Ryan, the Wisconsin Congressman chosen by Mitt Romney as his running mate. The early punditry claims that the addition of the tea partyish Ryan to the GOP ticket will energize "the base," but also scare Democrats enough to activate them as well. Read The Full Story
Now that Mitt Romney is the presumptive candidate of the Republican Party, you may want to start looking at your options for November. If you still feel unwavering support for Ron Paul, by all means support him through the Republican Convention. However, brace yourself for the likely outcome that Romney and Ryan will be the 2012 GOP Ticket.
Ron Paul has carried the torch o Liberty very well for over a quarter of a century. He has stated that he will not run as an independent candidate or a third party candidates. All along Ron Paul has stated that his campaign is not so much about himself, but rather the message on individual liberty. The minor parties have held their conventions and selected their candidates.
Governor Gary Johnson and Judge Jim Gray are the Libertarian Party Candidates for President and Vice President. Today the Libertarian Party of Tennessee has received confirmation that Gary Johnson and Jim Gray will be on the November ballot in Tennessee.
For the most part, Gary Johnson and Ron Paul agree on the issues (probably about 90% or more). Gary Johnson has stated that he will continue promoting the message that Ron Paul has supported for nearly a quarter of a century.
Voting for Gary Johnson is not voting against Ron Paul. Ron Paul will not be in the November election. Voting for Gary Johnson is voting for the message that Ron Paul has promoted. I too am a Ron Paul supporter. I am also a Gary Johnson supporter. You too can support both Gary Johnson and Ron Paul. If you are a Ron Paul supporter, you are likely a libertarian. So be Libertarian for one election and vote for Gary Johnson.
Tennessee will not be a swing state. Do not fall for the wasted vote hype. It simply is not true. A vote for Gary Johnson is not a vote for Obama. It is a vote for Gary Johnson. A vote for Gary Johnson is not a vote for Romney. It is a vote for Gary Johnson. A vote for Romney or Obama is a vote for more government, more spending, less freedom, and more war. A vote for Romney or Obama is a vote for the status quo and for the establishment backing the two major parties.
We hope that you can break free and vote for Gary Johnson. Be Libertarian for one election. Live Free.
