Johnson: Just as Ron Paul was left out of other debates in 2008Submitted by btickell on Mon, 06/13/2011 - 00:44
Gary Johnson is being snubbed this coming monday at the CNN Debates. We need to be supporting Johnson as well as Dr. Paul.. We need to call and request that Johnson be included, as we would hope that they would do the same if Ron Paul was being excluded.
This is what Dr. Paul says in Ron Paul Rising on the National Review online.
Ron Paul says....
“It is good to have a couple people up there during debates, it gives us both more credibility. During the first debate in South Carolina, when they quizzed me about drugs, he backed me up.”
Paul does not see him as a foe. “The more the merrier,” he says. “In the narrow, political sense, I don’t think it hurts. It might make me a better candidate.”
Paul emphasizes that he is on an educational mission. “[Johnson] might appeal to a different group of libertarians,” he says. “My goals may be a little different for the long term, but that does not mean that we should be sharp political competitors.
Think of last time around when they ganged up on Ron Paul about why they attacked us.. Guliani jumped on Ron Paul, and the rest of the Republicans did as well. If he is alone on the stage, they try to make him out to be a crazy uncle type. We all need to stand together and to call CNN to get Gary Johnson on, not to split the vote, but to keep Ron Paul in the running. It's harder to make him out to be crazy when there are multiple people on stage that share quite a few ideas in common.
I think all Paul supporters need to request for Gary Johnson to be included..
