|Lou Jasikoff, former Chair for the Pennsylvania Libertarian Party, blasted today's challenge brought by the establishment Pennsylvania Republican Party to keep Libertarian presidential candidate Gov. Gary Johnson from appearing on the November ballot as patently un-American. 'Every registered Republican in the state of Pennsylvania should hang their head in shame over their party leadership's actions,' Jasikoff commented.
'We have men and women fighting and dying all over the world in the name of democracy and yet it is easier for an Independent to get on the ballot in Russia or Iraq than right here in Pennsylvania. The American public is sick and tired of these same old political games. For the Republican Party to trample the very cornerstone of our democracy is an affront to our military, our Constitution, and every fair minded voter,' said Jasikoff.
