When it comes to the third party tickets, which I'm sure not many people have faith in, the Libertarian Party chose its nominee today in Gary
Johnson. He was actually on the Republican ticket up until 5 months ago, and even got the chance to participate in 1 or 2 debates, all with probably
less than a minute of time to speak. The rest of the debates he was denied access from.
Anyway, they are having their Convention in Las Vegas today and he was chosen as their nominee with Jim Gray the running favorite for vice president
pick in the hours to come. They seem to be taking the race pretty serious with their slogan being "Liberty Will Win".
As much as I would love to see a third party gain momentum, I never really have much faith in it. With that said, however, this excludes Ron Paul from
running as the Libertarian candidate should he choose to run third party if he would fail to gain the Republican nomination this Summer. It should be
noted that the Constitution Party also selected their nominee for President back in April - Virgil Goode.
