ince the infamous “temporary” Section 4 and 5 in Lyndon Johnson‘s Voting Right Act of 1965, the social progressive left has been crafting laws that would legally allow them to steal both Houses of Congress and the White House—and keep them.
Except for the eight years Dwight D. Eisenhower occupied the White House, the Democrats controlled every facet of the federal government since Mar. 6, 1933 through Johnson‘s five year reign. They had gotten used to being the boss, and they wanted to keep it that way.
On Mar. 18, 1965, acting on behalf of Dr. Martin Luther King on orders from Johnson, Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield [D-MT] and Sen. Everett Dirkson [D-IL] introduced S.1564, the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (42 USC §§. 1973-1973aa-6).
The bill remained deadlocked in the House as of July 27, until two Northern moderates, Harold Daniel Donohue [D-MA] and Peter Wallace Rodino [D-NJ] cut a deal with the Senate leadership to make Section 4 and 5 of the bill temporary, limiting it to 5 years.
Johnson‘s Attorney General Nicholas Katzenbach sent a confidential letter to Dr. King, seeking his approval of Donohue‘s and Rodino‘s adding a sunset clause to Section 5. Section 5 opens with a reference to Section 4(a), which should have been part of the sunset clause.
Should our federal government be big and “green” or small and frugal? That question is likely to be at the heart of the final debate of the 2012 presidential campaign, when candidates Dr. Jill Stein of the Green Party and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party meet in an election eve debate between “alternative candidates” for president.
…..How do we drive large-scale change during moments of crisis? How do we use this election to do so? Well, voting third party or even just honestly portraying Obama’s policy architecture is a good way to identify to ourselves and each other who actually has the integrity to not cave to bullying….
We need to put ourselves into the position to be able to run the government.
After all, if a political revolution came tomorrow, could those who believe in social justice and climate change actually govern?
[If we had had more courage, we could have] reorganized our politics. Instead the oligarchs took control, because we weren’t willing to face them down when we needed to show courage. So now we have the worst of all worlds, an inevitably worse crisis and an even more authoritarian structure of governance.
When Gary goes to Washington, we all go…
Gary’s track record speaks volumes.
As Governor of New Mexico, Johnson was known for his common sense business approach to governing. He eliminated New Mexico‘s budget deficit, cut the rate of growth in state government in half, and privatized half of the state prisons……

The former New Mexico governor this week took his case for inclusion in the presidential debates to U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C. Johnson’s presidential campaign filed an antitrust lawsuit alleging that the Commission on Presidential Debates is colluding with the Republican and Democratic parties to prevent third-party candidates from participating.
“It’s antitrust. We’re being excluded by a private organization, and it is fundamentally unfair,” Johnson told the Journal on Friday.
For liberty lovers and freedom fighters, the battle to get their grassroots
constitutionalist candidate nationally-recognized has been arduous.
At every step, mainstream media attempted to censor information regarding the revolutionary Republican candidate nominee, in some cases even censoring the utterance of his name.
The candidate was even ousted from his speaking role at the Republican National Convention last week, where his delegates were thrown to the nosebleed seats of the Tampa Bay Times Forum, and where he faced, still, further persecution as the Romney campaign’s lawyer, Ben Ginsberg, presented a vote to change party rules concerning the binding of delegates, the outcome of which was later revealed to have been predetermined.
“It’s pretty easy to describe what ails this country because far too many Americans have forgotten the basic premise of what our founders knew,” Johnson said in a speech on Friday at the Americans for Prosperity Foundation’s “Defending the American Dream Summit” in Washington, D.C.
