    I don’t know much about the intertrade process. I wonder if the bets are being held while all the votes are being counted. Some people bet Johnson would get at least 1% and others bet he would fall below 1%.

    I am very pleased that so many people took time to write-in Gary Johnson. Michigan is my home state and sadly clogged with neocons and nanny staters.

    I think Gary Johnson got more votes (as a write-in) than at least one candidate who actually appeared on the ballot.

    Why “coveted” 1% ? Johnson got more votes than most of you thought he would. He broke LP POTUS vote totals in over 35 states and % totals in over 25 total states. A SMASHING SUCCESS in LP terms !

    Overall an EXCELLENT year for the LP. Local LP activity is up in ALL areas and the future looks bright. The job is to keep it GROWING.

    No, GJ won’t break the 1% but rounded off it is a solid 1% ! How am I sure ? As write-in votes are counted nationwide each vote drives all “LISTED-ACCESSED” candidates percentage numbers down. So it’s .99%, .98%, or even .97% whatever it is, it is more than most of you thought it would be. Be honest, wasn’t it higher ?!

    “America was founded by men who understood that the threat of domestic tyranny is as great as any threat from abroad. If we want to be worthy of their legacy, we must resist the rush toward ever-increasing state control of our society. Otherwise, our own government will become a greater threat to our freedoms than any foreign terrorist.” – Ron Paul

    He might. Currently .992 and rising a little every day. Numbers won’t be final for at least a couple more weeks.

    I think it’s worth something that Johnson received one vote for every 47.7 that the Republican candidate received, despite spending a tiny fraction of what he did, and getting a tiny fraction of his media coverage.
