    One Republican that I could possibly see myself voting for, but I have to be realistic- I am never going to have that opportunity. He is not going to be the Republican nominee.

    Gary Johnson is starting to get more buzz. He comes across as intelligent and engaged.



    The Huffington Post seems him as a real threat to Obama if he can make it through the primaries: http://reason.com/blog/2011/04/25/gary-johnson-presidential-anno

    But the only way that this could likely happen would be to get a lot of independents interested in the primaries and get some Democrats to cross over and vote in the Republican primary. I don't see enough doing that to make it happen. I like the guy, but I have to say again, he is not going to be on any ballot in November 2012.

    He is a true long shot being only a former governor of NM. Wants to be the new Ron Paul.

    He should run as an Independent.
    He will NEVER get the 2012 Repub nomination.

    || In February 2013, Gary Johnson signed an amicus brief in the Supreme Court, along with several other conservatives, to oppose California Proposition 8.

    || Johnson released a statement on December 1, 2011, to announce that he supported gay marriage after "a great deal of deliberation, discussion with the gay community, and a conclusion that government has no business choosing who should be allowed the benefits of marriage and who should not." He continued, "Certainly, religions and people of various faiths have the right to view marriage as they wish, and sanction marriage according to those beliefs. Just as government shouldn’t interfere with individual rights, government should not interfere with how marriage is treated as a ceremony, a sacrament or a privilege within a set of religious beliefs. However, when it comes to the rights of individuals and couples under the law, government’s promise should be to insure equal access to those rights to all Americans, gay or straight."

    || In April 2011, Johnson supported civil unions for gay couples, adding that "the government ought to get out of the marriage business."

    ||Johnson wrote an op-ed in The Huffington Post in December 2010 to advocate for the end of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" military policy which prohibited openly gay servicemembers from serving. "While virtually all other significant military powers in the world have long ago lifted their bans on gays serving openly in the military -- with no adverse effects -- the U.S. has stubbornly clung to a 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' policy that accomplishes nothing other than forcing thousands of brave service members to live lies," Johnson wrote.

    Well than I will have to add him into the candidates that I am considering for the November election. It is either Jill Stein from the Green Party, Donald Trump from the Republican Party, and now Gary Johnson from the Libertarian Party. It will never be the Wicked Witch of Wall Street from the corrupt, incompetent Democratic Party.icon_wink.gif

    Gary Johnson Backs CO2 ‘Fee’ To Fight Global Warming


    http://dailycaller.com/2016/08/22/gary-johnson-backs-co2-fee-to-fight-global-warming/

    Good to see Johnson supporting this...something that the democrats and Hillary do not support.

    The problem here is that Johnson also supports TPP. TPP would probably stop the fee.

    Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson believes in climate change but does not think we should try to slow it down because in billions of years the sun will engulf us. Hey Gary, what about the next 7 generations?

    No... he definitely won't get the 2012 nomination. Probably not 2008 either but not sure we can rule it out yet. ;-)
