During the 2008-2016 reign of the Paul family in libertarian politics, libertarians took great care and precision into portraying facts as accurately as possible. During this new found age of the Gary Johnson movement, either their standards for integrity have gone down, or their general level of being informed. AllLibertarianFuture claims that Gary Johnson is a mere 2% away in an upcoming poll from being included on the deb…ate stage. Now while the Gary Johnson grassroots are exuberant with a self-sustaining sense of joy (almost like groupthink), eventually when they become more informed (or more self-honest), they will realize that this claim is 100% utterly false.
In order for a third party candidate to qualify to be on the debate stage. “
The Commission on Presidential Debates…requires candidates to get 15 percent support in SEVERAL polls in order to be allowed to participate.” Additionally, these “several polls are actually a cummulative average of polls the Commission considers relevant, and Gary Johnson has a long, essentially unachievable way to go. According to CPD criteria, Gary Johnson is currently polling at approximately 8%—barely half of what is required. But this does not seem to matter to the Johnson campaign or its supporters.
The “new and improved” Libertarian party clearly struggles with portraying facts accurately. First they claim that will be on all ballots in 50 states when their own website at the time in May showed they were absent from over ONE DOZEN states. Now they appear incapable of portraying CPD criteria accurately. As a Libertarian, I am very disappointed with this “new and improved” party that comes with a free Clinton CFR super best friend in Bill Weld. The Liberty Movement would never stoop to the low of misportraying fact like the other two major parties. I can only pray that this is just an act of ignorance and not outright dishonesty on the part of alllibertarianfuture.com
