Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is not enough difference between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney to make any difference of great consequence.  Both candidates preach the welfare-warfare-counterfeit state forever.  Both serve our failed elite without limit.  Both fail to admit the financial Armageddon the world is facing. 


Neither candidate offers any policy change that would point a course away from the enveloping depression.  Neither would finally bring our US troops home where they belong and give peace for the United States a chance.  Neither will do anything but advance the long decline of the United States now alongside a growing police state.

The establishment candidates have served only one full term in high office each.  Romney’s low approval ratings as Massachusetts governor at the end of his term deterred him from even seeking re-election.  It is only Romney’s weak, gaffe-prone campaign this year that allows Barack Obama to even have a chance to win in November given his disastrous performance in office so far.  The candidate of hope has morphed into the careful, Machiavellian sorcerer from Dante’s fires.

After over 20 years of campaigning for high office Romney has won one general election and only qualified for three.  Romney’s only true success this election year so far is squelching the Tea Party and locking out Ron Paul’s supporters forever.

Fortunately though, Obama and Romney are the two weakest candidates for President whose name will appear on all 50 state ballots.  Liberty’s voice is still in this race.

Gary Johnson, the National Libertarian Party candidate for President, was re-elected to high office.   He was re-elected by a larger victory margin than in his first election as Governor of New Mexico in 1998.  The 2002 election result was a ten point win as the voters appraised Johnson’s performance in his first term in office.  Johnson left office in New Mexico four years later with a 60% approval rating.

Johnson vetoed 750 mostly spending bills over his two terms in office with only two vetoes overridden by the legislature and put into law.  Governor Johnson left small New Mexico with a billion dollar surplus and fewer state employees than when he entered office eight years earlier, all in a Deep Blue State.

Johnson could do the same for our near bankrupt country beginning in November.  After all, Gary Johnson is the only leader in the nation who has succeeded at a one-man political revolution before.

President Johnson will submit a balanced budget to Congress for 2013 thereby abolishing five federal departments.  He will veto over and over any budget from Congress that continues to bankrupt the nation: the kinds of budgets Obama and Romney promise to enact.  Washington D.C.’s death grip on the nation will suddenly loosen in very large ways.

The conventional belief is this is quite impossible.  A man like Johnson would be torn apart one way or another by the dark powers of Washington, D.C.  Well, there sure is not much to work with for negative campaigning and dirty tricks.

Gary Johnson has never been associated with scandal of a moral sort, including the crony capitalism that rules the nation today. 

Gary Johnson is an accomplished tri-athlete.  He has climbed the peaks of Mount Everest and Mount Denali.  He has no vices, including hubris.  (Liberty is no vice.)

Gary Johnson built a construction company from scratch in New Mexico growing his creation into one of the largest employers in the state.  Few in New Mexico have much to say about Gary Johnson in a negative vein.  Johnson has always supported charity and other noble causes in a big way.

Last year Gary Johnson entered the Republican primaries for the party nomination.  He would have been a second and new voice with committed libertarian beliefs to join with Ron Paul on the national stage. 

The powers that be decided this would not be allowed.  A 77-year old professorial, somewhat wooden Ron Paul standing alone for liberty is one thing.  There was far too much danger with a youthful, credentialed Gary Johnson candidacy, too.

The corporate media therefore refused to include Johnson’s name in their national polls while including candidates like Herman Cain and Michele Bachman.  The media then used these very polls to determine that Gary Johnson did not have enough support to be in the Republican debates.

Had Gary Johnson been allowed to participate in the Presidential primary debates, like any successful past governor should be, Johnson certainly would have been one of the candidates to catch fire.  He is an articulate, friendly, gracious man voters are naturally attracted to. 

But Johnson does not have the gaping defects of Romney, Gingrich, Santorum and the others who passed around the lead in the national polls for months.  Johnson would have been swept to the party nomination thereby largely sweeping away the vultures controlling the Republican Party.

Shut out by the pro-Romney Republican establishment, Johnson decided his campaign would be heard whether the establishment approved or not.  He withdrew from the Republican primaries before a single vote was cast.  He decided to reinvigorate the Party of Principle and was easily nominated for President by the National Libertarian Party at its May convention. (I was there.)   Johnson has always been a freedom fighter to a fault: a perfect fit for the LP that has been lost in the woods for so long.  The energy being generated is quite akin to the Ron Paul Revolution. 

Yet, an identical betrayal of liberty’s agenda by our nation’s alleged truth seekers is being worked a second time against the man they know to be the best candidate in the race.  Once again, the corporate media is refusing to include Johnson’s name in national polls now alongside Obama and Romney.  Those polls, of course, determine whether a candidate has enough support to participate in the Presidential debates in October.

Who is the best candidate on the ballot by far?  Who has a proven track record?  Who is the only remaining candidate worthy of votes from honorable, free people? 

Express your outrage at this fascist maneuvering to the members of the Presidential Debate Commission.

Tell the corporate media how they have lost all connection to accurately researching the public’s mood in a hopeless effort to preserve the political monopoly of the Republican and Democratic parties.  The polling organizations know full well liberty’s agenda routinely had Ron Paul attracting 10% of the US general electorate in polls conducted this election year.

Tell the public that you are not going to take it anymore!

Demand that liberty’s voice be heard this October.
