GOP hates American freedoms

GOP Suing to Keep Third Parties Off Ballot in November

Posted on September 6, 2012 by beyondthecurtain

The New American
Around the country, the Republican Party is mounting legal challenges to keep third-party candidates off the ballot in November.
Writer Karl Dickey reports in the Examiner that “in recent weeks, with the full support and legal assistance of the Republican Party, [Gary] Johnson’s ballot status has been challenged in Michigan, Pennsylvania, the District of Columbia, Iowa and now Ohio.” Gary Johnson (pictured) is the former governor of New Mexico and the Libertarian Party’s candidate for president of the United States. As of this writing, Johnson is on the ballot in 43 states.
On September 1 the Ohio voters challenging Johnson’s appearance on the November ballot officially withdrew their opposition. In the one-page notice filed with the office of Ohio’s Secretary of State, Kelly Mills and Cynthia Rees did not explain their decision to drop their protest.
It could be related to the decision of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals decision handed down on August 31 dismissing the Ohio state legislature’s appeal of a U.S. district court ruling putting the Libertarian Party on the ballot for 2012.
On August 31, a senior advisor to Johnson released a statement regarding the various efforts to block Libertarian ballot access:

What an act of desperation. Makes me want to vote for Johnson even more.

Anyhow, I thought the LP ticket is on the ballot in every state, not just 43.

Reform Party has offered their already-on-the ballot to Ron Paul.

I mean it's not like they have a Ronald Reagan running to overcome one. Reagan had Anderson to contend with and still won in a landslide.
I hear Obama has the Electoral College edge currently.

But there are only 34 of us total who just hound the internet all day spamming online straw polls and donating all of our yearly earnings to Paul's campaign! We're so insignificant and few! You don't need us!

I was just positing a theory, I wouldn't claim to have the facts of this story or to even know if the OP is accurate.
It is clear that there is a certain lunatic fringe element of Paulites though.

What does that have to do with Ron Pauls voting for Gary Johnson instead of Romney and giving Obama the election?

That won't ****ing happen. And even if it does, Romney's not going to beat Obama.

Watch a lot of Pennsylvanians go ahead and spill their seed with a write-in for Johnson, or better, yet, Paul. These illegal ballots will get get counted, with a footnote.

And Obama wins PA, regardless.

Then, the "Reince Priebus" becomes the name of a new model bidet.

This makes no sense. Johnson isn't really a Paul and write-ins don't get counted.

Irrelevant, 'cause the ones who won't vote for Mitt won't vote for Mitt no matter if there's a 3P available.

Well this is ugly certainly. In my view, any candidate that has signed the Grover Norquist blackmail pledge has disqualified themselves as competent to serve the nation.
