Judge Andrew Napolitano Praises Gary Johnson

The following is from a transcript of of an audio recording of Judge Andrew Naplitano's presentation at Freedom Fest in Las Vegas on Thursday (12 July 2012) afternoon. His presentation was entitled “A Government of Waste and Lawlessness.” Here are the comments he made regarding Libertarian Presidential nominee Gary Johnson:

34:30: “I’m going to really go off script for a minute. . . .

There’s really no script; there’s just a note telling me I’m talking too long.

(Laughter.)

There is a person in this room, who I must invite to the attention of everyone, because he has the courage to stand in front of the establishment and say, “Enough is enough!”

Whether he wins or loses in his latest quest to set you free, he is a figure of historical significance and profound contemporary interest. He was once called, “Governor No!” when he said to the legislature of his state, “You are not going to interfere with commercial transactions that are voluntarily entered into.”

Maybe . . . who knows . . . after this campaign, or the next one, he might be in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Former New Mexico Governor, whose sandal straps I am unworthy to fasten, who will speak here tomorrow (sic) at 10:30, Governor Gary Johnson.

(Gary stands, applause.)

That’s what we should be doing. Challenging the establishment, reminding them that there is a Constitution and a Declaration of Independence that put restrictions on the government.”

(Governor Johnson is speaking tomorrow — Saturday July 14th 2012, at 10:30 am — two days after Judge Napolitano’s remarks above.)

This is great news. Now former Governor Jesse Ventura and Judge Andrew Napolitano have commented favorable on Gary Johnson's campaign for President. The website is www.garyjohnson2012.com There is a moneybomb going on through Monday, 16 July to raise funds to buy advertising to help get Gary up to 15% in the national polls so he will be able to take part in the Presidential candidate debates. Your kind support will be much appreciated. Live free.

Yes you are.

And now we're taking the discussion off the forum where you can't spam it.

You made your decision to be a troll, and make a pathetic spectacle of yourself, along with a few other retards.

Now, other people are making the decision to take steps to retaliate against your Johnson spamming, where you won't even see it going on but it's happening.
Johnson can thank YOU for it.

big t grow up, bottom line

big t grow up, bottom line folks like you make me want to say f ron paul but i donot let folks like you let me go that way. bottom line one more month you can call it daily romney for you! or daily goode!

Ron Paul 2016

voting down comments and not

voting down comments and not commenting yourself .does not change the fact that many ron paul purists are driving away the very ron paul support that brought us here!

Good luck pushing away ron paul supporters. big t and the purists are doing just that! Ron Paul 2012 all the way unless the gop does not give me that option. Johnson/Paul 2012 or Ron Paul 2012 over Obamney 2012

Ron Paul 2016

welcome to the daily goode

welcome to the daily goode per big t. if you do not support ron paul or goode. then you do not support liberty per big t

Ron Paul 2016

Later!

The fact that you view Johnson as a greater evil, and more worthy of your effort to defeat, than Obama and Romney, tells me all I need to know about you. Really, how does the liberty movement benefit by attacking Gary Johnson, and trying to make him irrelevant? Hmmm, where have I seen this pattern before? BigT talking about Gary Johnson sounds eerily similar to a neocon talking about Ron Paul. It makes one wonder... Again, who benefits in attacking Johnson? How does attacking Johnson hurt Romney, Obama, and their establishment backers?

Since Johnson

is not a liberty candidate, understands nothing about libertarianism or Austrian economics, is self-admitted pro-war, pro-tax, pro-abortion, I can't see how he has anything related to the "liberty movement".

He's a "cosmotarian" as Justin Raimondo so eloquently termed it.

big t Johnson is a liberty

big t Johnson is a liberty Candidate just not your 100% perfect ron paul/goode. you always have the liberty candidates obama/romney to vote for instead of gary,note sarcasm!! now i see the problem, big t is a 100% purist, even though ron paul is not 100% correct on all issues but i support him! big t your full of BS and i am not a troll! Ron Paul 2012

Ron Paul 2016

Speaking of know

Speaking of know nothings.....

Libertarians believe that the woman gets to decide.

Maybe you should read some Rothbard someday so you don't look silly.

Johnson is more libertarian in many ways than Paul. Paul wants to ban flag burning and use the power of the Federal government, if not the military to enforce the borders. Two more things that are clearly anti-libertarian.

BigT has long been co-opted and is Islamist supporter

as some rp supporters are. hence, anything that rivals establishemtn (obamney) in a meaningful way is seen as the biggest evil. and right now, it is only gary johnson that is it now. ron paul has a staff full of gop/dnc infiltartors and thugs, which bigt supports. rp proved that he would never harm or expose or criticize romney in any way. and bigt is in agreement, as that is the call of the dnc/gop party.

it may be difficult to und why anyone would not support gary johnson, especially as ron paul's team has long conceded to romney and doesn't stand a chance at the nomination, especially as he stopped campaigning months ago and has often hed a light schedule and avoids media.

but if you und that those same people are infact romney-paul supporters, then it makes sense why johnson is seen as 'evil' or why they feel the need to bash him as they did with all of romney' cons rivals that threatened him.

"My reply is hazy. Try again later".

Ron Paul will endorse Gary Johnson,

I DON'T CARE what some miscreants in his camp have suggested.

Just wait.

Not gonna happen

Ron Paul cannot because he signed the Susan B Anthony pledge which means he cannot support non-pro-life candidate. See: http://www.sba-list.org/2012pledge. I also believe that he wants to pass the torch to Rand eventually.

unless rand retracts his

unless rand retracts his romney endorsement before the election. Rand torch is already done! Romney/Rand 2016 NOT!!! rand is dead man walking for 2016 unless he can lie his way like romney .Which as evidence is possible with him! I will vote virgil goode 2016 before i ever consider voting rand. virgil goode 2016

Ron Paul 2016

Ron Paul can endorse whoever he wants or he won't

endorse anyone. He hasn't endorsed GJ so far and NEITHER HAS THE JUDGE, contrary to what some here are trying to make us believe.

honestly after the ron paul

honestly after the ron paul campaign implosion. I will not care who ron paul endorses. I did vote for chuck baldwin over the lying bob barr in 2008 but who ron paul endorses in this election has no bearing with my vote in 2012!!

Ron Paul 2016

That's about as close to an

That's about as close to an endorsement as you can possibly get without using the word "endorse".

The Judge has always been gracious

when speaking to groups of people at the Las Vegas Libertyfest. English is also his first language and he does have command of it. If he wanted to endorse anybody at that Libertyfest luncheon, he would have. He did not. He was being gracious. Stop spinning. You sound like faux news.

No, Napolitano truly likes

No, Napolitano truly likes Gary Johnson. That's a fact.

they will vote it down just

they will vote it down just because it is a fact. look the ron paul purists are gonna be the folks that beg you to vote for romney,virgil goode or anyone but gary in 2012. Ron paul purists should start a DP group called "Ron Paul DPer's against Gary but for Obamney/Goode if ron paul is not the nominee".

Ron Paul 2016

Of course he does!

His comments were gracious.... not lies! LOL There are lots of people I like, too and I have nice things to say about them. All that says is I like them and we agree about lots of things, not that I would go out and campaign for them, much less publically endorse them. That is reserved only for the ones I believe are the best suited for the job. That doesn't stop me from saying nice things about them when the subject comes up, though.

nonna i do not understand

nonna i do not understand this gary hatred from the ron paul purists. once the convention is over i cannot wait to hear who the gary haters are voting for and why. It is going to be priceless. obamney/goode or fill in the blank!

Ron Paul 2016

so if you cannot vote ron

so if you cannot vote ron paul on the ballot if he is not the gop nominee . Who are you going to vote for since you do not like gary? another 3rd party candidate? does your state even count write-ins? virgil goode?,obama?,romney? You are very quick to judge gary voters. so who are you going to vote for? or are you going to wrtie-in a vote that will not even be counted? If your writing in a name that will be counted in a state that does count write-ins great for you! if not who are you voting for as you disagree with gary voters.

DP dodge ball players. have you noticed alot of gary bashers cannot even tell you who they will vote for ironic eh!

Ron Paul 2016

And besides, the only people

And besides, the only people who seem to be using the word "endorse" to describe these comments are anti-Johnson people, not us. But the only way to know for sure if it's just kind words or an EXCLUSIVE endorsement is to ask.

I would say it's clearly an endorsement, just not the normal "you should vote for this guy" one.

The really eye-opening fact

is that the moderators, and probably Michael himself, are definitely aware of the level of overt disruption and intent to harm this site, and they have been told repeatedly about it.

Yet, they do NOTHING at all.
I have no faith left at all in this site management.

Everything is CHANGING.

Everything is CHANGING.

Ron Paul has given up on being President and is retiring from the House.

That doesn't mean he won't be involved, I don't think he is going to continue to be the spiritual leader he was, at least not politically.

Look at Michael's quote below. It's getting time to shift this from a cult of personality to a broader movement. Reality is on our side. If you want to be upset about it, go ahead, but tantrums never solved anything. I am not trying to harm ANYTHING, except stubbornnes and lack of logic.
