Michigan, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma …the list goes on. While Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are taking this campaign to new lows with personal attacks on each other and any other tactics they can find to avoid having to talk about real issues, there is another attack going on – and you need to know about it.
In state capitals across the country, the so-called “major” Democrat and Republican parties are attacking Gary Johnson. No, they aren’t doing it with press releases or the kinds of ads they are using to attack each other. Instead, they are attacking Gov. Johnson with lawyers and scare tactics. Their attacks: Legal challenges to keep Gov. Johnson and Judge Jim Gray off the ballot.
Gov. Johnson needs your help to fight back. Go to www.garyjohnson2012.com and make the contribution that will help us win these battles.
In Michigan, the Republican Secretary of State and Attorney General have dragged up an arcane law to rule that Gov. Johnson cannot be on the ballot, forcing us to file a lawsuit. In Oklahoma, we are fighting a similar battle. And now, despite the fact that our volunteers submitted more than twice the number of signatures on petitions – almost 50,000 – required to insure Gov. Johnson’s place on the ballot in Pennsylvania, the Establishment and their attorneys have challenged our petitions.
As I send this email, dedicated volunteers in Pennsylvania are spending days in a room arguing over individual signatures against a group of lawyers paid by the Republican Party. They need your help. You can go to www.garyjohnson2012.com right now and make a contribution that will help give them the support they need to do battle with the Republican lawyers.
Everywhere they can, the status quo politicians and their lawyers are trying to keep Gov. Johnson off the ballot – and limit voters’ choices to the Democrat Obama and the Republican Romney. And even when their challenges have no merit, they know that forcing us to fight these battles costs us time and money that we would otherwise use to spread the message of liberty, economic freedom and non-intervention.
Just like the Republican establishment who tried to silence Congressman Ron Paul, the powers-that-be are determined to keep the American people from hearing, seeing or even having a chance to vote for Gov. Gary Johnson. They’re afraid. They know millions of Americans, if given a chance, will reject the big government candidates and join the liberty movement.
And if they can keep our time and money tied up fighting bureaucratic battles and antiquated laws, they figure they can keep us from getting our message out.
Let me be clear. We will not be bullied. We will not let them keep us off the ballot. And we will not let them keep our message from being spread.
But we need your help. It is true that these fights in state capitals are costing a great deal of money. That makes it absolutely critical that our current Money Bomb reach the goals we have set. If we meet our goals, we will have the money we need to put our ads on the air – AND pay the costs of making certain Gov. Johnson and Judge Gray are on the ballots in all 50 states. We must do both.
Gov. Johnson has made it clear that our #1 priority is to give voters in every state the opportunity to vote for the only candidate who really stands for liberty, for individual freedom, and for government that is truly smaller. If we have to spend precious dollars to do that, we will – and we are.
Please go to www.garyjohnson2012.com today and make the contribution that will fulfill Gov. Johnson’s pledge to the voters in all 50 states. Over the past few weeks, more than 3,000 contributors have pushed our Money Bomb to almost $300,000. But we need to push it to $1 Million. That may sound like a lot, but with even small contributions of $5, $10, $50 or $100 from supporters such as you, we will meet that goal. And of course, larger contributions are fantastic.
Right now, all over the country, hard-working volunteers are doing battle with the two “major” parties and the election officials they have put in place to keep us off the ballot. Please join the fight today by going to www.garyjohnson2012.com and making a contribution that will not only help us fight back, but put our message on the air and in front of the voters.
Thank you – with your help, we will prevail. We know it.
Gov. Gary Johnson
P.S. Despite the attacks and behind-the-scenes games, we are winning the ballot fight. Already, Gov. Johnson is officially on the ballot in 36 states, and we WILL get to 50 states and the District of Columbia!
