Gary Johnson Wins LP Presidential Nomination On First Ballot, Says the Goal is to Win

• Independent Politics
The former two-term Governor of New Mexico, Gary Johnson, has won the Presidential nomination of the Libertarian Party on the first ballot. Facing three opponents in Lee Wrights, Carl Person, and Jim Burns, Johnson needed a majority vote on the first ballot in order to win.

.... Governor Johnson ... told a story about his daughter, who called and said that he’d gotten his ass handed to him in the C-SPAN-broadcast debate last night. He invited Lee Wrights up on stage to thank him for being a gentleman. They briefly embraced and Lee Wrights told the audience to help Johnson get elected.

 Another NUISANCE candidate for President next to Ron Paul. Even if they have a ghost of a chance, the public ignores them and doesn't have a ghost of chance of even thinking about it.

 Help Johnson get elected?

Elected to what?

The Demoncraps and RepugnantCONs have a stranglehold on electoral politics in this country. Johnson hasn't got so much as a ghost of a chance.

Even if he did, I'm still voting for the better candidate . . . Ron Paul.
