    I wish more people knew about Gary Johnson. I've met and interviewed him. He's a stand-up guy. Too bad he has no chance of ever getting the GOP nomination.

    I've heard about this guy for a while. You're right that he has no shot in hell, which is most unfortunate. But I'm glad someone out there from the GOP recognizes that LGBT people are real citizens who deserve equal treatment under the law.

    Though Johnson is unlikely to be a nominee, it's a complete disgrace that he's been kept from participating in the debates. He polled as well as Huntsman and Gingrich at certain points and would actually bring a different (and needed) perspective which would benefit everyone.

    The GOP can't relate to him because he's not crazy enough.

    An excellent book by one of the leading intellects of our times:

    Every politician should read this book; recommend it to your representatives.
