Why I will be voting for Gary Johnson for PresidentSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Fri, 08/03/2012 - 19:42
Americans are living in what may very well be the most dangerous and troubling era of her 236 years since the Revolution. It takes little imagination for anyone more than twenty years of age to recognize that today’s America is in accelerating decline with a $16 trillion dollar national debt, Congress operating from one debt ceiling increase to another, and an ongoing, liberty-stripping, decade long global war on terrorism with no clearly defined conditions for victory.
While many argue that the problems of our time are an electoral question of left or right, it is really a matter of up or down: up to personal choice, private ownership and protection of individual liberties, or down to government control of all things political, monetary, intellectual and ecclesiastical. Today’s America of security checkpoints, individual mandates, and myriad taxes and fees is a place unrecognizable from her humble beginnings.
