...and the nominees are

For those who may be considering voting Libertarian this year, your nominee for governor is in, and the winner is...(drum-roll please)...the Green Party's 2004 nominee for Attorney General, Marakay Rogers!   

According to the website greenpartywatch.org, "In 2004, Marakay Rogers was the Green Party candidate for Attorney General in Pennsylvania. She won 70,624 votes (1.3%) in a 3 way race".  Now she is running for governor as a Libertarian.  In her most recent FB posting (May 6, 2010), she took a shot at the highest ranking lawmaker on Pennsylvania's Liberty Index Rating, Daryl Metcalfe, saying: 

"State Rep. Daryl Metcalf (sic) has introduced legislation virtually identical to Arizona's horrendous anti-Hispanic immigration legislation. Once again, bad facts, bad ideas, and bad legislators make bad law. Contact your state representative and demand that the state protect Pennsylvania residents' personal privacy rights."


Along with her platform of opposition to the death penalty and the legalization of marijuana, she proudly serves on the Executive Committee of the Outright Libertarians - "an association of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and other self-identified "queer" (LGBTQ) Libertarian Party activists and supporters...who wishes to actively promote Libertarianism to all those who love differently".  


What a stark contrast to her Republican opponent, Tom Corbett, who states (in writing) that he "supports the Pennsylvania Marriage Protection Amendment and believes marriage is a sacred bond between a man, a woman and God".  

For those who believe there is no major difference between the two leading candidates, contrast Tom Cobett's views of marriage with the views of Marakay Rogers and with the  completed questionnaire that Dan Onorato submitted to the Stonewall Democrats - a group that self-identifies as "the national voice of LGBT Democrats".  It's no wonder that Tom Corbett maintains a double-digit lead (50% to 39%) over his democratic opponent in the most recent Rasmussen Report Poll


  1. How can an independent win against a Party who gets votes from the uninformed by just promising them goodies? If WE split our votes among "worthy" candidates, they win by default.

  2. Look, there seem to be 4 choices

    1) Dan Onorato
    2) Tom Corbett - There are 2 sites that document FACTS and are not smear sites about Corbett.
    The blog addresses are:
    a) therealtomcorbett.wordpress.com. Please have people read "Quid pro quo", "Wow, that really stinks" and "No smoking gun, but..." Is this bully and tyrant what people really want?
    b) casablancapa.blogspot.com. There are links on which you can click to access documentation for the statements / accusations in each of the blogs. The latter of the two is the one that Corbett convinced the Grand Jury to issue a supeona so as to force Twitter to reveal the author of the blog.

    c) Here is Corbett's "smear" mailer that he sent out right before the primary smearing Rohrer.

    d) Corbett said that the Constitution is a "living document" and should be interpreted in light of case law. This is exactly what the Democrats say. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZ43kyiOME8&feature=player_embedded

    e) When Corbett was asked at a FOAC (Firearms Owners Against Crime) town hall what he would do if the President ordered the Governor to disarm the citizens of PA. Corbett blah blah'd about how he was the only candidate to be a former guardsman, said some other things that a guardsman, who we know whose name is Dennis, who recently served his term said was inaccurate. Then Corbett went on to say that it was a "doomsday" question and he didn't answer. A typical politician-lawyer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KbhwReqDUA&feature=player_embedded

    3) Marakay Rogers who is a former Green Party suppporter, a stange progressive offshoot of the Democratic party. She's NO Libertarian!

    4) Samuel E. Rohrer via a write-in.

    Let's study the 4 candidates available to "We The People" and let's make an educated informed opinion. This is PA's WAKE UP CALL!

    Please take a few minutes and watch these videos, they are VERY enlightening

  3. Show me one thing on the Corbett primary mailer that is untrue (and I voted for Rohrer).
