About presidential candidate Gary Johnson: Gary Johnson, two-term governor of New Mexico from 1995-2003, has been a consistent advocate for limited, efficient government and personal liberty. Johnson switched from the Republican Party to the Libertarian Party on Dec. 28, 2011. As the Libertarian Party nominee, Johnson will appear on the ballot in 48 states. An outspoken pro-Constitution Libertarian, Johnson would end the war in Afghanistan now. He opposes the failed multi-billion dollar war on drugs and demands greater transparency at the Federal Reserve. As president, Johnson would cut federal spending by 43 percent, slash debt and make government live within its means while reducing taxes and regulation to foster real job creation and economic opportunity like he did in eight years as governor. The National Review said he was “#1” in job creation as governor. An avid skier and bicyclist, he has reached the highest peaks on four of the seven continents, including Mount Everest.

News from the Libertarian Party

In Uncategorized on October 29, 2012 at 9:33 pm
Libertarian Party

Dear Fellow Libertarian,

I have heart-pounding, foot-stomping good news for you.

Only 7 days Left to Get Out the Vote — for Our 567 Libertarian Party Candidates

5 nationwide Presidential polls found that 3% to 6% of likely voters plan to vote for Libertarian Presidential candidate Governor Gary Johnson. In razor-close, Tipping Point states – New Hampshire, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, Iowa, Colorado, and Nevada – Gov. Gary Johnson polls between 2% and 10.6%. Enough to determine the results of the Presidential vote. Seven pollsters and 13 Republican Campaign Operatives tell us: “Your Libertarian Presidential candidate Gov. Gary Johnson could change the outcome in several Battleground/Tipping Point states. No guarantees, but it’s very, very possible.” But None of this makes any Difference –UNLESS we Get Out the Libertarian Vote for November 6th.

UNLESS you and I and our fellow Libertarian Party members and supporters get our voters to go to the polls and vote Libertarian.

Election Day is the ONLY Poll that Matters.

Are you frustrated and fed up with the Big Government Politicians folding, shredding, and mutilating liberty?

Are you bone-weary of knee-buckling, back-breaking Big Government Taxes, Borrowing, Spending, Legislation, Regulations, and Mandates? Are your family, friends, and neighbors?

Are you straining, sweating, and bleeding week after week – NOT to support yourself and your family – but to shoulder the ever-heavier burden of Big Government?

You can make it stop. You can turn it around.

With your Libertarian Vote – and by helping us to get other Libertarian voters to the polls for November 6th.

Your vote is your voice. When you vote Libertarian.

Want to tell the Washington politicians you’re not going to take it anymore?

Want to Send Them a Message They Can’t Ignore? A Message They’ll Never Forget?

Help us Get Out the Libertarian Party Vote – during these irreplaceable last 7 days until November 6th.

You are one of 93,000 Libertarians receiving this email message.

There are 282,357 registered Libertarian Party voters in America. (Only 30 states permit us to resister Libertarian.)

2,100,000+ votes were cast for Dr. Ron Paul, our friend and hero, in the Republican Presidential primaries and caucuses. Congressman Ron Paul and Governor Gary Johnson are both champions of individual liberty and the Constitution. They are implacable foes of Big Government. Brothers in arms for freedom and small government.

Over 67% of polled Ron Paul activists plan to vote for Libertarian Presidential candidate Governor Gary Johnson – BECAUSE a vote for Gary Johnson is a Vote for Ron Paul.

PLUS there are several million uncompromising Tea Partiers and Independents and new libertarians.

But None of these Numbers Make any Difference –UNLESS you and I and our fellow Libertarian Party members and supporters contact and connect and convince them to go to the polls and vote Libertarian.

For our Libertarian Presidential Ticket of Governor Gary Johnson and Judge Jim Gray

For our 567 Libertarian Party candidates on the November 6th Ballot.

What We Must Do These Last 7 Days before Election Day.

We must notify or remind every Libertarian to vote. To vote early if they can – in case something comes up on November 6th.

We must publicize and advertise and mobilize every libertarian or libertarian-leaning voter, every Tea Party voter, every Ron Paul or Ron Paul-leaning voter, every Gary Johnson or Gary Johnson-leaning voter to vote for Governor Gary Johnson for President – and vote for every Libertarian Party candidate on the ballot in their state.

We must send a loud and clear call-to-action to several million people these last 7 days.

We must raise $70,000 to $90,000 during these 7 days to have a chance to get the lion’s share of these likely Libertarian voters to the Polls.

Everything that Gary Johnson has done this year, Everything that our 567 Libertarian Party candidates have done this year…DEPENDS on what YOU and I do now. DEPENDS on whether we can contact and connect and convince over a million of us to show up and vote on November 6th.

You and I and our fellow Libertarians can seize this huge opportunity – IF we pour it on these last 7 days before Election Day.

We must move fast – to give YOU the maximum Libertarian votes from this 7-day surge.

Will you help us massively boost our outreach now, our Get Out the Libertarian Vote Avalanche of Activism, pump up our blog promos NOW?

Now is the time. Every dollar you donate – gives 10 times the impact.

If you can possibly donate $10,000 or $5,000 or $2,500 now, you can make a huge difference now. Will you please make this generous donation today?

Will you, can you donate $1,500 or $850 now – during these maximum-impact last 7-days?

If you can contribute $250 or $500 today, will you please?

Or $35 or $85 or $150. Won’t you please help us help you advance liberty?

Please either click and donate now or mail your donation to the address below with “Get out the Libertarian Vote” in the memo.

You and I must raise $70,000 to $90,000 in these last 7 days – to send the Big Government Politicians a Message They Can’t Ignore: Liberty is On the Rise.

Your donation delivers Libertarian votes this November 6th. Thank you.

Yours in liberty,

Carla Howell, Executive Director

Libertarian Party

P.S. We only have 7 days left to promote and publicize our Libertarian Campaign message. We’re nearly broke. Please help our Libertarian Party candidates campaign, get publicity and news coverage, and get votes – NOW. Will you please donate $35 or $85 or $150 or $850? Your donation is our budget.

Gary Johnson Shut Out of Second Presidential Debate, But Polls Show He May Swing Election 2012

October 16, 2012

PolicyMic

By Jake Horowitz

Johnson only has small support nationwide in the presidential polls, but he enjoys a dedicated following of young people and former Ron Paul supporters, enough to actually make a difference in election 2012. He is on the ballot in almost every state (not Michigan or Oklahoma), so he has the potential to have a major impact on either Obama or Romney’s chances.

October 19, 2012

Reason.com

By Ronald Bailey

Not exactly, but more closely than one might expect. The producers of Planet Money are running a terrific series in which they asked a panel of economists whose views span the political spectrum what policies they think the perfect presidential candidate should adopt. It turns out that a lot of them echo the policy proposals of Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson.

Laramie Boomerang

October 19, 2012

The Washington Post

By Sean Sullivan

Gary Johnson, the Republican-turned-Libertarian Party presidential candidate, won’t come close to matching the vote totals of President Obama and Mitt Romney next month. Nonetheless, he’s a variable in a handful of battleground states that could determine the outcome of the election.

October 22, 2012

Denver Westword

By Sam Levin

Election day is rapidly approaching and it couldn’t be clearer in Colorado where residents are bombarded with nonstop ads and weekly traffic jams due to Obama and Romney rallies. But those two aren’t the only presidential candidates showing the state some love.

Frightened Republicans Try To Shut Down Election Competitors

October 22, 2012

Forbes

By Doug Bandow

The Republican Party claims to believe in freedom. But not really. Certainly not if that means being able to vote for someone who truly believes in liberty.

Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson, a Republican who cut spending while advocating legalization of marijuana, originally ran for the GOP presidential nomination. But most of the debate organizers refused to let him join the largely undistinguished candidate herd which included another unknown former governor (Jon Huntsman) and a businessman with no political experience (Herman Cain).

The talk show host, who is moderating the Free & Equal Elections Foundation’s independent candidate debate, said he thinks any candidate who is on the ballot in at least 40 states should be invited to all the major sanctioned debates.

Today is Nationwide Gary Johnson Sign-Waving Day… And You’re Invited!
Gary Johnson supporters from coast to coast are invited to theNationwide Gary Johnson Sign-Waving Day, TODAY, October 19th.
We’ve already held three Sign-Waving Days so far and have received hundreds of pictures; we believe that today will be our biggest and most successful day yet!
However, we know a number of you have had questions about how to make signs, so we’ve included suggestions on how to have a successful Sign-Waving Day.
Please make sure to:

HOW TO MAKE A GARY JOHNSON SIGN

Sign Material

  • Coroplast White (Plastic Cardboard)
  • 4mm Gauge, 48″x96″ Sheets
  • One sheet makes four 24″x48″ signs.
  • When you cut, make sure the ribs follow the long direction of the sign. That way it’s stronger and the cut is easier.
  • Check sign shops and similar stores.

What to Write With?

  • We buy “Glass Chalk” in Walmart’s automotive section. Get both Red and Black.

Lay Them Out To Dry!

  • If you make mistakes, you can erase with rubbing alcohol and fix it.
  • You’re almost ready for your sign rally. The next step is finding your best location. We’ll cover that next.

Be Creative

  • Cardboard, paint, stickers, chalk… anything will work!
  • The most important part is that your sign is visible from a distance.

SELECTING YOUR RALLY LOCATION

Traffic Volume Maps

  • The first thing you’ll need is a Traffic Volume Map.
  • Many areas have these available online. Search “My City/County Traffic Volume Map”
  • Find the streets with the highest Traffic Numbers and choose two or three as possibilities.

Location Scouting

  • Now we have to scout our locations. Suitable locations need to be:
  • Safe. Make sure there’s a sidewalk or a wide median to stand on.
  • Clear. You don’t want too many trees, driveways, or other obstacles that will interfere with your position.
  • Make sure you’ll be on the right side of the road to face the heavy traffic. This will be opposite for morning and afternoon.
  • Avoid having your back to the sun if possible.
  • Try to be present during morning traffic or afternoon traffic, if possible.

Distance of SIgns

  • Your signs will be separated 40 steps apart from each other.
  • Your first sign should be at least 20-40 steps from the nearest corner. Count it out and find that spot.
  • Is that a safe place with a clear view of traffic?
  • Repeat until you know that you can place up to seven volunteers safely.
  • Make sure there’s adequate parking for all of your volunteers.
  • Leave any prime parking to retail stores if they need it.
  • Now you’re ready for your sign rally!

RUNNING YOUR SIGN RALLY EVENT

Volunteers

  • Recruiting and encouraging volunteers is your most important job.
  • Passionate volunteers are what make this campaign different.
  • This is very rewarding work for volunteers. Once they get out there and see the response, they will recognize the impact you’re making.
  • As people sign up, invite them to invite their friends.

Before the Sign Rally

  • Start calling and inviting volunteers as soon as you have a location.
  • Call all of your volunteers if possible. Confirm and encourage those who’ve agreed to be there, and invite the rest one last time.
  • Email is a good follow up and reminder of details, but it does not replace the phone calls.

Timing

  • Time your rallies to meet morning and afternoon traffic. You’ll reach more people, and they’ll have more time to read your signs.
  • Keep your rallies to about one hour each. This shows respect for your volunteer’s time, and will help to ensure you don’t wear them out.

Rally Time!

  • Arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled time. If you aren’t there, volunteers will not always wait for you.
  • Use sidewalk chalk to mark locations for your volunteers to stand.
  • Place the first mark according to the location scouting document.
  • Make a solid circle about the size of the palm of your hand with a “1” next to it.
  • Walk forty normal steps and make number two the same way. Mark all seven locations even if you’re expecting fewer people. You never know who’ll show up.
  • Your volunteers are the most important part of this event by far. The signs are a distant second.
  • You’ll need to coach and encourage your volunteers as they arrive, and throughout the event.

Sign holders should:

  • Smile and wave! Their smile is by far their best asset.
  • Look into the car and smile at the driver – hold the sign still.
  • They don’t need to spin or wiggle the sign. People will see it.
  • Stay on their location. Many will want to pace a little, but keep them within a few feet of their assigned mark.
  • Hold their sign at a right angle to the street. This is the best angle for drivers to see it.

Good luck waving your Gary Johnson signs! Don’t forget to send your pictures to CampaignTrailPics.

GOV. GARY JOHNSON APPLAUDS FEDERAL APPEALS RULING THAT DEFENSE OF MARRIAGE ACT IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL

Oct. 18, 2012, Laramie, WY — Calling it “another major step toward ending marriage discrimination,” presidential candidate and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson today applauded a Federal Appeals Court ruling in New York that the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as only between a man and a woman, is unconstitutional.

In a statement, Johnson said, “Unlike Gov. Romney and President Obama, I firmly believe marriage equality for gay couples is a constitutionally protected right under the Equal Protection Clause. Today’s ruling by the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals confirms that belief and is a major step toward eliminating the discrimination that is enshrined in the Defense of Marriage Act.

“While, as a former Governor, I am a staunch defender of states’ rights, when it comes to marriage equality, it is not good enough to hide behind the idea of deferring to state law, as President Obama has done. Gay Americans will either be treated equally under the Constitution, or they will not. That is not a matter to be left to the states. With today’s ruling, I am more confident than ever that the U.S. Supreme Court will ultimately resolve the issue of gay marriage on the side of equality.”

About presidential candidate Gary Johnson: Gary Johnson, two-term governor of New Mexico from 1995-2003, has been a consistent advocate for limited, efficient government and personal liberty. Johnson switched from the Republican Party to the Libertarian Party on Dec. 28, 2011. As the Libertarian Party nominee, Johnson will appear on all 50 states’ ballots. An outspoken pro-Constitution Libertarian, Johnson would end the war in Afghanistan now. He opposes the failed multi-billion dollar war on drugs and demands greater transparency at the Federal Reserve. As president, Johnson would cut federal spending by 43 percent, slash debt and make government live within its means while reducing taxes and regulation to foster real job creation and economic opportunity like he did in eight years as governor. The National Review said he was “#1” in job creation as governor. An avid skier and bicyclist, he has reached the highest peaks on four of the seven continents, including Mount Everest.
