If a party hit's a certain percentage of the popular vote, that party is automatically included in the next election cycle and cannot be shut out of the national debates. That didn't happen until Ross Perot 'cost' Bush 1 and Bob Dole the presidency.

That. It wouldn't "destroy the two party system" (nothing short of complete electoral reform will pull that off), but it'd lead to more voices in the mainstream, and that's a good thing.

Yeah--if 5% of the vote turns out for an independent--they are entitled to federal funding in the next election. While tempting--it keeps us freaking log jammed--it takes the vote away from the candidate who has a chance, but that candidate is a Republicrat. Or Demoblican. Or whatever.

If I was Republican--I'd have no issue handing off the next four years for a real conservative candidate, though.

Nope- the debates are administered by the Commission on Presidential Debates, which is a joint partnership between the R's and D's. If a 3rd party was polling at 75%, the Big 2 parties aren't forced to let that candidate debate.

They most likely would, and they usually use 15% as the cutoff, but they don't have to.

The current form of the GOP does, yes. Libertarians of late though are basically Republicans who don't want to invade Iran, are okay with gay marriage and want to legalize marijuana. There are also a lot of Ron Paul fans who joined up with the LP so they could vote for Gary Johnson. Eventually they'll filter back into the GOP because they'll become sick of their candidates not winning anything.

More info on why 5% is such a magical number


PARTY CONVENTION AND GENERAL ELECTION GRANTS

The Presidential nominee of each major party may become eligible for a public grant of $20,000,000 plus COLA (over 1974). For 2012, the grant is approximately $91,241,400 for each major party nominee. With the exception of the 2008 Democratic presidential nominee, Barack Obama, every major party nominee has accepted the general election grant since the program's inception in 1976. Candidates themselves may not raise any other funds to be used for campaigning during the general election period.

Public grants of $18,248,300 went to each of the major parties for their conventions in 2012.

Since no third party candidate received 5% of the vote in 2008, only the Republican and Democratic parties are eligible for 2012 convention grants, and only their nominees may receive grants for the general election when they are nominated. Third-party candidates could qualify for retroactive public funds if they receive 5% or more of the vote in the general election.

The problem with this ad is that it's running on the idea that both Obama and Romney are the same when a.) there is a CLEAR distinction between the two and b.) the Libertarian platform is but a mere amalgamation of a moderate amount of social liberalism with a whole lot of extreme fiscal conservatism.

They need federal money so they can run a slightly larger presidential campaign next time. That will guarantee them the ability to kinda sorta spoil elections for a major party. They could devote their resources to local elections they might actually win but apparently those elections aren't as cool and might result in real work.

Wrong. It's actually a lot more cynical than that.

This has nothing to do with being in the debate. Ross Perot scored 18.9% of the vote in 1992 and 8% of the vote in 1996. But in case you didn't notice, the Reform party wasn't allowed to debate in 1996 or 2000.

This is about money. If the libertarian party scores 5% of the vote, then they get $90 million in federal funds at tax payer expense. In other words, this entire "score 5% of the vote!" campaign is based around the idea of getting a federal handout and a redistribution of wealth for people who are unable to pull themselves up by their own bootstraps. From a group that usually protests this very concept on principle.

Remember, Gary Johnson raised over $2 million in campaign cash, and only spend $1000 on media buys until a week ago. The rest of the money was given to his friends he hired as "political consultants." If Gary Johnson raises $90 million, he and his friends can be expected to pocket about $80 million worth as campaign salaries.

Gary Johnson on Abortion: "Governor Johnson states that abortion rights were not something dealt with in the constitution and should therefore be dealt with at the state level. He stated that the Roe vs. Wade decision has expanded the reach of the Federal government into areas of society never envisioned in the Constitution and should be revisited. Once Roe vs Wade is overturned, the abortion decision should be returned to the states. This viewpoint is echoed on his campaign website, where he affirms his pro-life stance and states that government should be neutral on personal beliefs."

Oh, look - another RON PAUL-style neoconfederate calling himself a Libertarian.

You just dont understand libertarianism one single bit

Just talk to a libertarian and you'll see. The reason why they aren't handily winning every election is because people just don't know that they exist. Once America realizes libertarians are a thing, the Dems and Republicans are toast because libertarianism is awesome and totally workable.

That government money is a springboard to victory. It will allow them to buy ad time to tell people to go watch Ron Paul youtube videos. Once this happens the sheeple will finally wake up, all our problems will be fixed, and we get legal prostitution and pot and millions of dollars and guns for everyone because Congress would totally go for all that stuff, too.

The numbers are based on Gary Johnson's actual filings, where the word "Political" was misspelled on 49 separate occassions. "Politcal advisors" isn't actually a broad category, it's actually refers to an actual company started by one of Johnson's buddies.

Link

Bonus: That isn't their actual name (Their actual name is NSON). Also, on his campaign filings, he included the wrong wrong address.

But this man is totally qualified to be president.

I'm 32, so relatively young; which means most of the Libertarians I know are mid-to-late 20s, early 30s.

I don't like generalizations, but I've never met a group of rugged individualists that could be summarily lumped together as succinctly, and as easily as Libertarians.

He's not Republican at all in the social policy sense.



No, only in the "running as a republican in the primaries" sense.

jim32rr: KellyX: jim32rr: KellyX: IVE FREE? What's that?

You vote, huh

Funny huh? I've seen crappy ads in the mail boxes, I've seen downright lying ones too, and sleazy ones...

This one is just cheesy and attempting to get votes by selling sex... I dunno who is the target in this ad and I think the "L" in "LIVE" was hard to read easily at a quick glance.

Relax Kelly, just messing with you.


Sorry if I came across bad, it wasn't the intent, that was me being a little sarcastic then explaining myself better... Been a little on the defensive today because of another thread... =(

schrodinger: To give you an idea of how Gary Johnson would spend the $90 million:


That chart is out of date. They saved their money for media buys late in the election (as in the last few weeks).

Yeah, now that number is up to $13,000. Or still less than 1%.

And what kind of jackass waits until 2 weeks before the election to do media buys?

"5% of the vote ends the two party system"

Gary Johnson does not understand electoral math.

Tyrone Slothrop: "5% of the vote ends the two party system"

Gary Johnson does not understand electoral math.


The main thing about the 5% is not only funding, but ballot access. Right now, in most states, ONLY the R and D parties are automatically on the ballot. All others have to petition every single cycle to be listed. Most states will give major party status to parties that have at least a 5% showing in the past election. It makes it much, much easier to get a candidate on the ballot when the party has an automatic spot. That does, in a way, put a big ding in the two party system at the state level.

It takes away the whole having to get petitions signed, go through all of the BS at each individual state and county election office to be listed, including fighting the lawsuits and BS the majors throw in the way of a third party candidate that might upstage them.

Which, for all of those that are concerned about the admin and advisory side of Johnson's spending, is why those numbers are so out of whack. He's had to spend a lot of money to fight the R's in a few states that were pulling out all of the stops to keep him off of the ballot. Disenfranchisement doesn't just happen with ID laws and early voting rules.

Gee, if only there was some way to determine how much of Gary Johnson's campaign expenditures has gone towards paying the cost of law firms. Like, if there were some sort of campaign filings that listed the names of law firms Gary gave money too and the amount of money that he paid them...

Yes. Gary Johnson is hindered by the $17,500 he spends on lawyers. Not by the $1,300,000 he's given to his friends political advisors.

My Libertarian buddy is swearing up and down this was from a Gary Johnson supporter, not from the campaign itself.

It's from a Gary Johnson supporter that Gary Johnson re-posted on the official facebook page.
