Skip to comments.Gary Johnson--Libertarian for President-Proven Budget Cutter From New Mexico
Posted on 07/24/2012 1:18:59 PM PDT by appeal2
We met up with Gary Johnson, former governor of New Mexico and present Libertarian candidate for President. Gary was a former governor of New Mexico. During his two terms in office, of an overwhelmingly Democrat state, he vetoed 750 bills and exercised thousands of line item vetos. He was so effective that his opposition referred to him as Governor Veto. He ran for the Republican nomination this year, but he was kept out of the early debates by CNN and CNBC rules, which were created to keep out minor candidates. As a result, he never attained the status of serious candidate as far as the Main Stream Media was concerned. While his odds of winning the nomination are virtually non-existent, his message is compelling, and he has provided a road map for other fiscally sane candidates to shake things up.

Read the rest of his agenda. He is a massive nut job.
Oops. I meant Gary.
In any event - Are you series? He’s a freaking Libertarian. And see my tagline for what I think of them.
What sort of things did he do to reduce the New Mexico budget?
Also proven unelectable, and any vote for him is NOT a vote that might remove the sitting president
“Read the rest of his agenda. He is a massive nut job.”
True. Shame, that.
I do so wish the non-pot smokers could take over the Libertarian Party or the Republican party could get back to the Reagan roots of cutting government, as chosing between socially conservative statists and liberal statists is not much of a choice.
A vote for my cat would have more of a chance of succeeding.
...and he won’t even take NM in the general election.
What he might succeed in doing is keep NM as a blue state for Obummer.
Thanks for nothing.
Headline should read: Gary Johnson (Obama), because a vote for him is a vote for Obama.
The left is pushing hard for Gary Johnson. You will soon see a movement to get him to appear in debates as well. They know if he takes 3-4 from Romney, game is over. Obama wins.
Look at Rasmussen Reports today. In Michigan 5% prefer “someone else in the race.” The only “other” is Johnson. If not for Johnson, Romney would be tied with Obama in Michigan.
And nationally, 6% prefer “some other” candidate. That is Johnson. If not for that, Romney would be up 51-44 nationally, instead of 45-44.

Oh heavens... The horror... :-|
Granted, he's no John McCain or Willard Romney, but that isn't a bad thing either.
Looking at the quotes from Gary, his position is to the political Right of this...
waiting for the crowd to call you a dope smoking hooker loving fag in 3...2...1...
( i have been called all of the above when talking of constitutional rights violations by the fed )..
Hey, maybe it wouldn’t be so bad having a librarian for a president. A librarian might know a lot more than a Libertarian.
Gary isn't my first choice. He wasn't even my 5th choice. He's just a better choice than either Willard or Zero...
What are you, some kind of dope smoking hooker loving fag?
Shows you don't spend a lot of time in a library though...
I do like vodka though, you can ask my Wife of 16 years about that.
Did I make it in time?
What am I going to do for our 16th anniversary? Sept 14th...
Normally I would have had something planned out by now.
Good point. This means no Gary Johnson and no Mitt Romney. A vote for Romney is an endorsement of Commiecare.
And assault weapons bans, and Federally subsidized abortion mills, and more UN control over us, and...
Gary Johnson....disaster in waiting
Gary Johnson was my govenor in NM.
For a wacky large-L libertarian, he was OK in a lot of things.
Off the rails on a lot of others, however.
For the record, he is not pro-abortion on the federal level. He is pro-reversal of Roe v. Wade and returning the issue to the states. (Where he goes of the rail is that he thinks abortion is OK at the state level.)
Given I refuse to vote for the Romney joke, I may vote for this guy if the Constitution Party doesn’t get on the ballot in NM.
Sarah Palin 12... No One Else
I gather that you intend to write in Palin in November.
Is that correct? And if so, how is that any different in impact on a Romney-Obama race than would be a vote for Johnson?
There are also a few issues on which Virgil Goode and I strongly disagree.
Either of them are preferable to a Democratic candidate with whom I disagree on everything or a Republican candidate who has no definitive views upon which I can form a judgment.
