The mainstream media proclaimed Mitt Romney to be the Republican challenger to the Democratic Incumbent for President, even though Ron Paul had not yet (and he still has not conceded) the Republican primary election to Mitt Romney. The media began to work tirelessly to find talking points the on which Obama and Romney who disagree. This was a time consuming task, and it took concentrated weeks of time and hundreds of millions in money just to try and convincing the American electorate that there is a huge difference between Obama and Romney this November, and that the two candidates could not be more different. This article was a joint writing piece by the Tampa Bay Libertarian Examiner and Kristi Dunn, out of Jacksonville, Florida.
The media, not the candidates, creating much of the drama for personal gain
In actuality, the media has spent more time creating controversies between the two men in order to try and prevent the American voters from learning that there are two other choices for president that truly offer an option other than the implied promised of big and increasingly restraining government. These two gentlemen who campaigned on limited government and civil liberties and freedom are Gary Johnson and Ron Paul. Short of a miracle next week at the Republican National Convention that allow Ron Paul to win the Republican nomination over Mitt Romney, there will only be Libertarian Gary Johnson.
Explicitly excluding Gary Johnson from the polls, the debates, and the campaign altogether
Gary Johnson, as many people ask, “Who is he, and what has he done?” Since the mainstream media is controlled by the same corporations that benefit from keeping that challenge the status quo, educated voters must turn on their computers and turn off the cable and network television news stations, which are increasingly becoming nothing more than a mean through which the government can broadcast its propaganda. Readers need to read about each of the candidates on the internet to find Gary Johnson’s website, and call all of the polling companies to politely insist Gary Johnson be included in the polls so he can have the opportunity to reach the 15 % threshold that guarantees a three way presidential debate (these numbers are included at the end of this article).
How to make a difference
For those individuals with friends that insist on how different Obama and Romney are from each other, politely remind them “The greatest differences between Obama and Romney have simply been created by the Mainstream Media itself to give voters an “Illusion of choice” this November. If that alone is still not enough to sway the friends,, so-workers, and teammates away from the brainwashing propaganda broadcast daily by the mainstream media sources, then back up these claims with these 40 pieces of evidence and questions regarding Obama and Romney.

15% in the polls is a crucial point to reach, if Ron Paul does not get GOP nod this is easy to do
As promised in the first part of the article, here are the numbers to the national polling agencies across America to politely insist that Gary Johnson be included in the polls. He has been able to reach 15% in the polls that have included him, but he needs to have all of the polls giving him recognition to achieve this 15% ratio of support across the polls. If Johnson can have a chance to get on the state and expose Obama and Romney for the laying and warmongering crooks they actually are, the United States would be a much better place by the beginning of 2013.
