How would consumers like it if, when they go to buy a new car, they were led to believe that the only real choice they have is to buy either a Ford or a Chevy? What if, after they looked at the Ford and the Chevy, half of all consumers weren’t satisfied with either one?  http://www.livefreeblog.com/_johnson_more_choices_in_presidential_debates

If this a metaphor, of the Two Major Political Parties, so be it!  We have a third choice, don't purchase! (vote)!  Not a good choice, but ? here is other metaphor; "What if there was a War, and nobody showed up?"    Simple answer, of many, is:  Those who declared the War, would just start a 'Propaganda' Program, or restrictions of goods, to whom need them, in order to provoke, and then 'someone from both camps' would 'Fight'!   My Opinions, and Philosophy of Quantum Theory of Everything; Dr. Gene~Landrum, Theorist of Everything.

Absent a legitimate threat to lives, property or national security, heavily-armed Feds attempting to use force against a citizen will almost never end well. Fortunately, BLM finally made the right decision and diffused what was becoming a very dangerous situation.

Fearing for their safety as armed protesters gathered in the Nevada back country, federal officials on Saturday suddenly ended a controversial effort to seize hundreds of cattle that a rancher has kept illegally on public land.

This is an important week for marriage equality, as the 10th Circuit Federal Appeals Court in Denver takes up the first of several reviews of recent judicial rulings overturning state bans on same-sex marriage. I am proud to be among those who signed "friend of the court" briefs in the 10th Circuit calling for an end to marriage discrimination.

+Ian Gardocki An institution is an established law, practice, or custom. It is a ceremony, yes, as it can be (and typically is) both.

In 2012, there were FOUR candidates for President who had enough support, the credibility and determination to qualify for enough States' ballots to be elected in the Electoral College. Yet, when voters tuned in to the nationally-televised Presidential Debates, there were only TWO candidates on the stage. Find out why, and help make sure that, in 2016, ALL the qualified candidates are on the stage -- not just the Republican and the Democrat -- by going to https://www.ouramericainitiative.com/presidential-debate-commission.html

That is right, dead on the nutz, +Guthrie Wilson and +Jesse Smith! WE deserve the choice and two is NOT a choice! Our first presidential race in 1788 included nine candidates! Even if all the other candidates make it to the state's ballots enough to throw off the electoral voting process off to where the democrips and rebloodlicans can't force an "electoral" win, would be somn of a first to make history happen!

While the heavy-handed actions of the Feds in Nevada this week are truly disturbing, perhaps the real question we should be asking is: Why does the Federal Government need to own more than 80% of the land in Nevada in the first place?? In fact, they own so much land that they literally don't know how much they own!

For 20 years an old hard-bitten Nevada rancher and the federal government have been locked in a bitter range war over cattle grazing rights.

Our America’s Honorary Chairman Gary Johnson is urging Americans to contact Congress and demand an end to the NSA’s out-of-control mass surveillance of American citizens. In an email to the Our America Initiative’s supporters, Gov. Johnson pointed to the recent admission by the Director of National Intelligence that, contrary to assurances from the President, NSA DOES in fact read Americans’ emails and monitor their phone calls. You can read Gov. Johnson’s full message here: http://ouramericainitiative.tumblr.com/post/82016132205/tell-congress-to-fix-it

Story
Tagline
Honorary Chairmain of Our America Initiative | 2012 Libertarian Presidential Candidate & two-term Governor of New Mexico.
Introduction
About Governor Gary Johnson: A two-term governor of New Mexico from 1995-2003, Gary Johnson has been a consistent advocate for limited, efficient government and personal liberty. As the Libertarian candidate for President in 2012, he received more votes than any Libertarian candidate in history. An outspoken pro-Constitution libertarian, Johnson opposes American involvement in foreign conflicts with no clear U.S. interest. He opposes the failed multi-billion dollar war on drugs and demands greater transparency at the Federal Reserve. Johnson advocates cutting federal spending dramatically to achieve a balanced budget and make government live within its means without raising taxes. He believes real job creation and economic opportunity can be best achieved through smaller government and less regulation. The National Review rated Johnson as "#1" in job creation as governor. An avid skier and bicyclist, he has reached the highest peaks on five of the seven continents, including Mount Everest and, recently, Aconcagua in Argentina.
Bragging rights
I have two great kids: my son, Erik, and daughter, Seah, who both help out with the campaign. I've completed over 30 triathlons, competed in the Hawaii Iron Man competition, and have summitted four of the world's highest peaks, including Mt. Everest. As Governor of New Mexico, I vetoed about as many bills as the other 49 Governors--combined. I was one of only 4 Governors in the country to leave my state with a balanced budget, and I created that surplus while cutting taxes 14 times. A recent National Review report showed that out of all the Governors running for the Republican presidential nomination this year, job growth was highest under my watch than anyone else's.
