My understanding is REDDIT is popular with like college kids. I dunno, I may be young, but I like 90's technology...kid you not.

Bruce Willis was thinking of suing Apple cause he wanted to leave his daughters his iTunes song collection...but then learned that tecnnically when one buys a song from iTunes, you are ''borrowing'' that song. Not buying it.

#3 now. Not for for 5 hours worth. Nealy 2,000 comments and up votes. Obama did a AMA last week I think...

Major news out now.

1. On the ballot in 43 states and in D.C.

http://www.lp.org/2012-ballot-access

2. He is now at 4.3% Nationally according to JZ. And PPP has him at 2% in Nevada and 5% in Colorado. He is dropping in Colorado. However, a purchase for radio ads is being made as of Wed, the 5th of Sept 2012. And these radio ads will go out soon in various states. Hopefully Colorado is one of them.

http://newmexico.watchdog.org/16032/...n-paul-voters/

Quote:
In the meantime, Johnson said his campaign is about to launch radio advertisements in various states across the country — “the purchase is happening right now,” he said Wednesday.
3. Johnson spoke to about 100 people, mostly students at Winthrop

http://www.heraldonline.com/2012/09/...n-message.html

Error there, he would cut 43% military, not Defense.

I don't know how much it will help, but that video via Source Fed has indeed gone viral. 54,516 views in it's first 18 hours...300,000 views in first week?!

The AMA was #2 on the front page of Reddit and #1 in iAMA. Had 3,020 comments when I checked it out.

I would like this only if he is given a fair chance to speak his mind. Seems like he and Ron Paul both get ignored by the moderators in a lot of these debates.

Doesn't matter, the fact a popular YouTube channel did a video on Johnson is big. I imagine a few sites may pick up on the news once the video pass 100K or 200K on YouTube.

Comparison...GJ2012 highest ad is 71K views...and that took 3 months to get there.

Gary Johnson also has 240K Facebook likes, nearly at 241K as of this post.

Oh and radio ads hit tomorrow in various states or nationwide.

Nice short interview on MSNBC today.

http://video.msnbc.msn.com/martin-ba...09497#49009497

First viral video on YouTube at 109K views. Popular Reddit iAMA. 2 days of CNN coverage. MSNBC today. FOXBusiness tomorrow with other 3rd parties on Stossel 9pm. 15 city college tour through this month.

And the radio ads are nationwide starting off on Libertarian leaning stations to get donations to pick up, then will expand.

Some news...

http://www.thedailybeast.com/article...o-get-him.html

Gee, how can the Republican Party support Freedom but do that?

And this...Gary is on the ballot in 47 states and D.C. Could it be 48 states and D.C soon?

http://www.politicspa.com/libertaria...-appeal/41141/


Gary has had a good week for him in terms of MSM coverage. Monday he was on CNN OutFront for 3 minutes. Wed he was on MSNBC, video is in post above, and here is FOXBusiness interview on Stossel. Who ended up endorsing him at the end of the show.

Good brief article.

Quote:
During the past week, new polling results for Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson have come from Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, Ohio, and Virginia. These new polls have Johnson winning 3% of the vote in Colorado, 7% in Montana, 7% in New Mexico, 4.5% in Ohio, and 3.8% in Virginia. A Zogby poll released on September 3 had Johnson at 4.3% nationally. While these numbers are not large enough to seriously challenge for the presidency, they do exceed the margin of victory between President Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney in every case.
With radio ads out now on libertarian stations, a college tour kicking off Monday, and more media buys in the works, Johnson has staying power.

Johnson files anti-trust lawsuit against CPD, and both major parties.


http://www.examiner.com/article/libe...-get-debates-1



Quote:
The lawsuit, filed only hours after the Commission's announcement, charges that the Republican National Committee and the Democratic National Committee and an organization they set up, the Commission on Presidential Debates, have conspired together to restrain trade, both in ideas and in commerce. The lawsuit maintains that the Republican and Democratic Parties, through the CPD, indefensibly limits access of other candidates to the marketplace of ideas and the opportunity to be employed in these highest offices in the land, and in so doing are violating the Sherman Anti-Trust Act of 1890.

The lawsuit seeks an order of the Court enjoining the debates from proceeding unless all candidates who will appear on the ballot in enough states to win in the Electoral College are allowed to participate.
Nielson said the Johnson campaign would likely file additional lawsuits in additional jurisdictions challenging the exclusion of Johnson and Gray from the debates on other grounds.
Prior to 1988, the League of Women Voters sponsored nationally-televised presidential debates. The League withdrew its debate sponsorship after the Republican and Democratic campaigns negotiated an agreement to determine which candidates could participate, who would be panelists, and other details of the debates. The League withdrew its support for the debates because "the demands of the two campaign organizations would perpetuate a fraud on the American voter."

Gary Johnson's Pro-Recorded Duke University speech.


http://vimeo.com/49986113/

This was a couple days before he got to 6% nationally and before filing the anti-trust lawsuit.

Gary Johnson has a new ad out, but it's done by the NH Libertarian Party. It's tongue in cheek. Gary Johnson vs Zombies.

Hmm, way off topic, but wasn't the EU thinking of ruling that you can resell digital media? As such you should be able to also bequeath it...of course, that may not affect American law at any point.

Gary Johnson to me is just, the zillionth edition of Ross Perot. He's still got that Flat/Fair Tax idea that is massively regressive, probably wouldn't work, AND, if you take prebates into account to avoid the regressive nature of the national sales tax, actually makes a massive swath of the U.S. population dependent on one of the biggest government distribution programs in history. You'd be replacing one form of dependency with another.

Am I wrong?

Well, the Fair Tax is better overall than what we have because it gets rid of the following:

IRS
Income Tax
With holdings
Corporate Taxes
Capital Gain Taxes

Everybody pays taxes. Legal or not, no escaping that under Fair Tax. Everybody gets $2400 a year to help out with Fair Tax. But you are right to a degree.
