Who is Gary Johnson? Fun interview with Samantha Bee. First I'd heard of the Jaguar thing. NSFW.

I liked your link to Samantha Bee's interview so much, I wanted to be sure to catch Part II. Here it is:

Like in Part I, Gary is adorable. Thanks for sharing.

Btw, I know at least three of those people. Indiana candidate for governor Rex Bell was one of the "boring" people reading off vote totals at the mike. The chick that nominated Dobby from Harry Potter is a Hoosier. One of the guys they showed reacting to the naked guy is director of the Advocates for Self-government, a long-standing libertarian organization that produces the "World's Smallest Political Quiz" and is based in Indianapolis. Also, James wasn't totally naked. There was G-string.

I'm interested in the opinions of anyone who watched the town hall and doesn't strongly identify as libertarian. If they're bad, feel free to pm me :-) .

I've seen and read entirely too much of party members' views, and they don't really matter at this point.

Gary addressed the nation's mayors today in Indy. Sounds like it went well.

This is something for those who strongly support the military and those who strongly oppose war to think about.

Active troops support Johnson over Trump and Hillary.

"But most of all, people who tell you that you’re wasting your vote are telling you that your principles, and values, and beliefs aren’t worth much. It’s saying that selling out for a chance at winning something you don’t really believe in is better than sticking to your guns and going down fighting for something better.

Gary Johnson is correct. For those of us who cringe at the mere mention of Trump or Clinton, a vote for them IS a wasted vote.

Vote your conscience.

In "72 I voted Socialist Worker's Party as a protest vote against Nixon / McGovern.

In 2000 I refused to vote given the choice between Bush and Gore.

The stakes are far too high in this election to piss away my vote.

A third party candidate isn't yet a viable choice. If the Republicans continue on

their self-destructive path, maybe a third party has a chance but not now.

Besides his massive tax breaks for the rich, Johnson said he would sign the TPP agreement if he's elected:

I have talked to people who lived in New Mexico while Johnson was Governor their.   Their negative reaction to the job he did then surprised me and convinced me not to vote for Gary.

Rand Paul: Clinton should be in jail, vote Trump 

 

"Rand Paul made a plea to his fellow libertarian-leaning voters: Don’t throw away your vote on a third-party candidate and allow Hillary Clinton to become president."...

Johnson self destructs

 

http://www.thenewame...rket-carbon-tax

 

Despite a historic opportunity for third parties to do well this presidential election, Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson seems determined to blow it. In the equivalent of shooting himself in the political foot, Johnson announced support for a deeply unpopular tax on emissions of carbon dioxide, or CO2, to stop alleged “climate change.” And he sought to deceive voters while doing it. While the former New Mexico governor framed the tax scheme as a “fee” and a “free-market approach,” even libertarians blasted the deception.   

 

The “fee,” as Johnson referred to his proposed tax in a perfect emulation of ObamaCare-style semantic deception, would massively expand government control over Americans and the economy. At the same time, the scheme would further enrich crony capitalists such as Goldman Sachs and Al Gore, along with the other mega-banks and oil companies pushing for it. The poor and middle class, though, along with freedom and free markets, would suffer a devastating blow from the plan. Even the planet would suffer, according to experts.   

 

Known to scientists as the gas of life, CO2 is an essential molecule needed for plant life and is exhaled by every person on the planet. Despite being absurdly demonized as “pollution” by extremist politicians and bureaucrats, it is emitted in almost every human activity — from sitting on a couch to driving a car to turning on a light bulb. Human emissions of CO2, though, appear to be insignificant at best, making up a fraction of one percent of all the “greenhouse gases” in the atmosphere...

What Gary actually thinks about a carbon "fee" is at the link.

I don't always agree with his stances as they are reported, but I appreciate his thoughtfulness and open-mindedness. His default position it toward liberty, but he isn't dogmatic. It's a shame we have an electorate conditioned for soundbites though.

For those unwilling to click the link: he does not support either the carbon fee or, what had some howling the last few days, forced vaccinations.

It would be a life altering event for most Americans if we had someone in the White House that would actually carry those principles forward...
