The untold story of indies and smaller party types rescuing fabled Peace and Freedom Party by Nazi Govenator. (NOT CARRIED IN DAILY NEWS!)

Besieged by third-party accusations that state law was misapplied, McPherson's

office said it stands by its interpretation of the Election Code section regarding when

a party's qualification should be reviewed but acknowledges that precedent supports

the party's claim to a ballot berth.

"Secretary McPherson strongly favors greater ballot access for qualified parties;

therefore, he has chosen to act upon the side of the historical precedent,"

spokeswoman Jennifer Kerns said in an e-mail, adding that counties are being

notified of the reversal. "In the future, we may seek legislation on the issue to help

clarify the statute."

Oakland attorney Bob Evans, the party central committee's recording secretary, said

the party is "glad" McPherson reconsidered: "The past interpretation of the statute is

the only reasonable one."

Evans credited Richard Winger, editor of the online newsletter Ballot Access News

at, with providing McPherson historical information on

the law's application.

McPherson's report of registration in advance of June's gubernatorial primary,

released Monday, had said "the Peace and Freedom Party dropped below the

required percentage of registered voters and is no longer a qualified party. That

leaves six qualified parties eligible to nominate candidates in the upcoming

primary." The report showed the Peace and Freedom Party had 59,193 registrants

statewide — about 0.4 percent of all registered voters.

Read the following words carefully, as they will probably not see the light of day in

the so-call mainstream media. A valiant knee jerk response by ‘Decline To State’

Independents and smaller party types has saved a vital piece of democracy here in

the Neo Nazi 21st Century. The current so-called reformist governor of California is

a former fascist military cadet from Austria. After defeating

the other worst governor in state history, Arnold Schwarzenegger then became Gray

Davis. (Ya never see both of them in the same room at the same time any more!)

Arnold’s Secretary of State, acting like a corrupt opportunist from the Gray Davis

Machine, tried to clobber a local four decade old institution of national significance.

For a while it looked like the illegal Blitzkrieg of the Peace and Freedom Party was

akin to the original Nazi’s containment of allied forces in Northern France many

years ago. The Peace and Freedom Party, having been a piece of the cultural

landscape in California politics since that other overseas military adventure in South

East Asia, was endanger of unlawful disenfranchisement. This is despite of their

federal senatorial candidate gathering over 2% of the 2004 vote.

Like the small ships of England in 1940, the shadowy ‘irregular’ players of West

Coast politics rushed in to save their comrades. Guided by legal details from San

Francisco’s Richard Winger and his Ballot Access News, the lovers of true liberty,

real justice, and fairness for every one flooded the politicians, main stream media,

blogosphere, and each other with righteous indignation and secular outrage.

The Sacramento Bully Boys folded like a battered card table. (And who are the actual Girly Men?) GOP Lite Democans and main line Republicrats

are the enemies of the every day citizen and the average wage slave. Our allies, our

Peace and Freedom cousins, can now continue to moan, groan, bitch, and gripe EN

BOLLETTA about the mess that the Big Guys have conned the rest of us into.

I do not see the Libs (like Winger) or Greens (like 2004 independent/ Nader running

mate Peter Camejo or Napa Sentinel Pubisher Harry Martin) holding a fancy Press Conference (with free food and drink for

the press, of course?). Natural Law types and reform minded citizens are regaining their

organizational footing and helped out in a less organized fashion.

‘Spontaneous’ out rage from the Establishment types are

scheduled for Mondays and Tuesdays---not the Weekend! Do not look for these

words to appear any where but the alternative media. (Not with the Daily News' current editorial staff. Not with insider Ron (Son-

Of- General- Collin-) Powell at the Federal Communications Commission!)
