  3. Jesse Johnson of the Mountain Party of WV GPUS Presidential Candidate is fighting the biggest ballot acces battle in the nation. If you saw him on youtube, then you know is a real contender for the Green Party nomination. I look forward to hearing him Feb 2nd in the D.C. forum as well as Harrisburg. Pa. I have found him to be one of the most prophetic political voices of our time.
