Gary Johnson Carries Ron Paul’s Message into NovemberSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Sun, 08/05/2012 - 23:53
Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) is considered, even by his critics, one of the most consistent and outspoken advocates for personal liberty in the United States. Paul himself seems to acknowledge that his third and final presidential run will come to an end in August at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, FL. However, Ron Paul’s delegates and supporters can still impact the RNC in a significant way, especially if their weathered determination and energy are any indication.
But Ron Paul’s “liberty movement” as well as independent voters fed up with the partisan duopoly now face a serious question heading into November. Who will represent Ron Paul’s platform and supporters in the general election? As it turns out, there is another credible, outspoken advocate for Ron Paul’s brand of politics in this year’s presidential election running with the opportunity to continue the political movement Ron Paul started.
His name is Gary Johnson, he is a former two-term Governor of New Mexico (1995-2003), and will be on the ballot in all 50 states as the Libertarian Party’s candidate for President of the United States.
