GJ: I think that the message that I'm delivering is really identical to that of Ron Paul

NPR just did an interview with Gary Johnson and here are some highlights:

"I think that the message that I'm delivering is really identical to that of Ron Paul and Ron Paul, being a messenger, this would be coming out of his mouth, I'm the same thing. I'm a messenger here of the whole freedom/liberty agenda..."

"I would be the only candidate that doesn't want to bomb Iran."

"Let's get out of Afghanistan immediately, bring the troops home."

"...And balancing the federal budget means reducing military expenditures by 43 percent."

"People that are coming out to see me are growing in number, and I think my voice is representative of the largest growing segment of American politics today....that the momentum is straight up, I'm not expecting anybody to recognize that. But that's the case. And if it weren't, I wouldn't be doing this. My message is a message that needs to be heard and it needs to be pursued."

"Well, the notion here is to win. The notion here is to poll at a high enough level to be in the national debates against Obama and Romney."

I have been on Paul bandwagon since 98

and I just can't beleive some people here are willing to ignore the other good candidate in the race that can with our support at least interject libertarian principles into the debate.

If Ron Paul doesn't make it (very sadly the likelyhood is great) then we must be ready for a plan of action to throw support for the other good candidate as quickly as possible if not sooner.

For those that want to say, take this to the Johnson site, I say shut up hypocrites. It was us Paul supporters who went on other sites to tout liberty in the name of Paul, it is only fair that Paul/Jhonson supporters go on sites to tout liberty in the name of Johnson.

Liberty is Liberty, obviously Paul would be best choice, but Johnson is easily the next best thing.

Just saying...

OK, OK

GJ support, full on after Tampa~! RP support, full on before Tampa

We all know, as does GJ the message of liberty will win in 2012

i could plug away all day ever day gary..gary,,gary..
i could live and breath gary...gary...gary
but what i think i might do is,come to the DAILYPAUL

and plug another candidate over top of the one running
on a site dedicated to him
i think you are a sell out

GJ gets an interview with NPR

GJ gets an interview with NPR whereas they practically ignored RP during both campaigns.

I'll just leave it at that.

But, "all things considered", I'd be ecstatic to have GJ as president.

I google news for GJ every day

This was the ONLY coverage he got today in the so called mainstream media -- there is zero articles and tv interviews.

There are about a dozen articles in the mainstream media about Dr. Paul today -- enough said.

I urge you to check it yourself.
Google Gary Johnson and select news last 24 hours.

Gary Johnson is Now Our Best Choice for President

I hope Ron Paul gets a key speaking slot at the Republican Convention in Tampa and that some of his ideas are put into the party platform. But after that I am backing Gary Johnson for President. He will be on all 50 state ballots and is speaking out for peace and liberty and the Constitution. Gary is polling at 7% in Colorado, 9% in Arizona and Montana and 12% in New Mexico.

the guy could use a big helping of RP's

humility as well as his erudition and principled consistency.

GJ is not RP and RP is not GJ

Video where he describes breaking his leg (and getting it to heal early — before he went to Everest — by not taking pain meds, antiinflammatories, or using a cast and by using an experimental ultrasound bone healing device!) is here:

People know almost NOTHING about who Gary Johnson is.

What is wrong with having a plan A and plan B?

Plan A)Support Ron Paul 100% for the republican nomination and for President.If Ron Paul is on the ballot in the general election whether it be as a republican,independent or whatever,support him 100% and vote for him of course.If Ron is not on the ballot move to plan B....Plan B)Support and vote for Gary Johnson.This seems like the obvious choice and I don't understand why we can't all agree on this.I feel fortunate to even have this plan B option in place.I have much more hope this election than in 2008.

GJ has said that he is for unconstitutional executive orders.

Even if the order would later be ruled unconstitutional, he would still make it. How is ignoring the parts of the constitution you don't like identical to Ron Paul's message?

You can ask him on Twitter

Identical message

Just different words. Or different meanings for words.

Welcome to the era of the "Ron Paul Butts". I'm just like Ron Paul but a bit different. I'm just like Ron Paul but I like militarism or entitlements or corporate cronyism or the Reservist system.

We're gonna be seeing a lot of these butt-heads in coming years.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

reminds me of Mike Lee

Dr. Paul endorsed him...he won a seat and endorsed Mitt Romney.

NDAA PATRIOT Act CISPA drones wars the drug war etc GJ stands against it all.
Btw he reads the Daily Paul and follows some hard core RP supporters on Twitter.

If only he understood the monetary system.

He might make some real sense.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

Peter Schiff said great things about GJ

Schiff said he listened to GJ speak on economy/monetary issues and could not find anything to disagree...

Jesse was a Governor at the same time GJ was and knows him very well.

I'm going with the motorcycle mantra

It's relevant to know what Gary Johnson is saying. But it's not time to be thinking of alternatives. I'm going with the motorcycle mantra: Look where you want to go.

Watch Out

The Republican Convention in Tampa may be a dead-end street.

Doug Said There Were More Cats

.......this one's a copy cat. Another wannabe thinking they can ride on Ron's coattails and snarf up his er...what did they call us?...oh yeah "political capital."

fonta

Ha ha!

Thanks for the laugh!

Q for GJ: If your message is identical, why does Ron Paul

have so much more support?

How much support Dr. Paul had in April 2007?

Do you see GJ on FOX CNN MSNBC etc?

He could not even get into the debates during GOP primaries...and he gets as much money from crooks like Goldman Sachs as RP does - zero.

But he is already pollig at 7% in Colorado 12% in New Mexico 8% in Montana 7% in NH.
