Gary Johnson is a moron. His switch away from the R party after the primary is simply the desperation attempt of a sore loser.

Or, maybe someone who truly believes he would be better a President than Romney... but hey, that's a really low bar to hurdle.

The guy said we should all join the Occupy movement,


wants to cut the military in half and thinks Iran is no great threat to our national security because of the idea of “mutual destruction” between the two countries.

To be honest the Military is sorely mis-structured; the Constitution clearly never intended for there to be a regular army. (And I believe there shouldn't be; as the 2nd Amendment says, the security of a free state is dependent upon the militia: that is, armed citizens.)

Also said he would do everything in his power to prevent Israel from striking Iran.

And? Why is that a bad thing? As much as Iran is horrid, didn't Jesus say something about peace-makers?

Favors the legalization of pot

The war on drugs has eviscerated most of the Bill of Rights: the 4th means crap, the 5th doesn't bar "arresting property", the 6th is jeopardized because juries automatically assume that the [federal] government has the authority to regulate drugs (why did prohibition require a Constitutional amendment then?) and allows the government to judge intent-without-action, the 8th is laughable (have you seen the sentencing-schemes for drug crimes? What about mere paraphernalia?), and then there's the 10th: every federal drug-law weakens the 10th amendment.

and gay marriage proponent.

To be fair he also said that he doesn't think the government ought to be involved in marriage.
