Reader's viewpoint: Johnson the only viable option

Gary Johnson is currently the only difference in the 2012 election. Many people are confused and believe that Mitt Romney is different than Barrack Obama, but truly there is no difference. Many people also had the assumption that Barrack Obama was different than George Bush, but soon Barrack Obama became even worse. With this said, the same will happen with Mitt Romney.

Mitt Romney’s flip-flopping positions only shows he cannot be trusted and will change his message according to who his audience is.

Can't you sellouts at least wait until after the Republican.....

.....Convention to pick a nominee before you jump ship?

We did not take a vacation!

When Rand Paul made his choice we kept on fighting and spreading the word...who are you to acuse me?

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

Mentioning Rands choice really shows

your mentality and lack of judgement. You make it sound as if Rand endorsing Romney actually means anything...Is that why you jumped ship from Dr. Paul like the day that happened? Are you that weak? Are you that gullible? It would appear so. Too bad when Dr. Paul gets the nomination, you will have no longer have a right to say you were a part of it.

De criminalize Liberty!

GO AWAY. Leave us alone,

GO AWAY. Leave us alone, please. If you do not have the BALLS to support Ron Paul right NOW at this critical point, please go grow a pair somewhere else besides this great forum.

The Johnson Clingon's just got sprayed, now they're all running like mad trying to invade our own nest.

The roaches are everywhere...

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

hmm

Why don't you and your friends leave?
And go to the DailyRomney?

Please do.

Legalize you are being annoyingly and

disrespectfully pushy. go support Gary. You know this site is in honor of Dr. Paul.

Stop wars abolish the military industrial complex FED...

This site WAS NEVER about Dr. Paul -- it was always about his message.

You and some other seem to have forgotten about this.

How many f**ing times Ron Paul said it was not about him but about the message?

F....

Right now,

its about trying to take back this country and save our own necks by getting Dr. Paul elected. This is serious, stop the nonsense.

There's only one

basket available. And you want people to jump out of it, and into the third party trap, where they can labor away with no hope of success.

Seems to me you are all about pushing

one man, just the wrong one. What happened to "it's all about the message?" Is RP not the most effective transmitter of that message in politics of the last 1/2 century? What is the mania to push a guy with a far weaker message?

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson asks Tampa supporters to help

Gary Johnson continues to campaign in Florida:

"Johnson — wearing Levi's jeans, a Nike polo, sneakers and a yellow Livestrong band — pointed out policy differences between himself, Romney and Obama for the crowd. He does not support an individual mandate for health insurance, he wants to get out of Afghanistan immediately, he wants to repeal the Patriot Act, and he wants one "fair tax" on consumption, for starters. Johnson also supports the legalization of marijuana.

He said he would devolve control of Medicare and Medicaid to the states — but not before cutting the programs' budgets by 43 percent. Drastic? Yes. But necessary, he says.

He commended Gov. Rick Scott, who has said he will not implement the Medicaid expansion permissible under the new health care law.

"The money gets phased out, and you're stuck with a bill with no money," said Johnson, who will focus his campaign in more libertarian-leaning places than Florida such as New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Montana and Alaska.

"The base themselves, neither one of them are very excited about their candidate," said Alex Snitker, the Libertarian Party candidate for U.S. Senate in 2010.

During a question and answer session, Scott Allen, a 55-year-old Libertarian from Polk County, asked Johnson to describe his libertarian epiphany story. Johnson described reading libertarian materials in the 1970s that applied to him.

"Then there is that epiphany that all of us have had, and that is, rolling up to a stoplight in the middle of the night," he said. "There's no cars coming, and you've got a red light. And, okay, so you stop, but is it okay to go? Yeah, it's okay to go.

"And that's Libertarian."
