Libertarian Gary Johnson brings his 'Live Free' message to Dallas

Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson will make a campaign stop in Dallas this week as part of his weeklong "Texas Swing" road trip.

The former New Mexico governor will arrive in Big D on Wednesday, August 15 for a series of media and fundraising events.

Among them, beginning at 7:30 that evening, The Free Man Cajun Café and Lounge in the heart of Deep Ellum will play host to a "meet and greet" fundraiser. Plans for the evening call for Johnson to address the gathering, engage in a question and answer period afterwards, and make himself available for photo ops.

Those who would like the candidate's autograph should bring a copy of his book, Seven Principles of Good Government.

I just realized legalize has been duped to make johnson look bad

Somebody he closely associates with has him believing that spamming pro johnson news as we get closer to the rnc - will somehow be a benefit for johnson.
Its not.
Obviously.
This is akin to going into a life or death surgury in 10 days and you may not make it but you are trying to remain optimistic- while your own children fight over the Will and drag you into the conversation.
Legalize is doing that.
And what comes of it?
It doesn't help Paul. And it certainly doesn't help johnson with all this negative PR. You know the johnson campaign staff obviously wants his name kept out of the fray until we see what happens in tampa (which he has stated several times as to not ruffle the feathers of paul supporters like us who can be ruffled.)

Just whose side is legalize on, anyway? It aint johnson. Somebody is playing the good spirits and passions of legalize and using it to cause these distractions. I'd bet its the same close inner friends who convinced nystrom to change the theme of this website and fade out the paul icon. Perhaps friendly paying subscribers are the ones causing the provocations. All they need to do is go back and revisit whichever thought allowed them to steer off course and look to see how they came under that influence. They will find they are very close friends who are none other than your agent provocatuer.

A 3rd party vote

Like the rest of you, I plan on a 3rd party vote. When someone tells you to settle for Romney or it's half of a vote for Obama, just tell them you're settling for half a vote for Obama, because hey, it's better than a WHOLE vote for Obama!

I didn't know Gary Johnson was running for

Prime Minister in Canada. Wish he would.

I am a Ron Paul supporter.

I have donated to Ron Paul; I have voted for him at the Values Voter Summit. I have voted for every online poll that I know. I have stood in the wind, cold, snow proudly holding Ron Paul signs. I have volunteered at my polling place to get people to vote for Ron Paul delegates. I have talked to many people about Ron Paul and his positions. I believe in Ron Paul and his ideas. But I have to ask? If Ron Paul does not get the Republican nomination, how does voting for him by writing him in this November help the Liberty cause? What does it really accomplish? Why is it wrong to try to give Gary Johnson support - a chance to get to the presidential debates? Wouldn't these debates give more exposure to the Liberty cause?

No.
By putting Gj on the stage distracts from the obvious connections obama and romney have and the one party system they both represent, that GJ is a part of.
GJ is a distraction and must not be allowed to enter the race or the debate stage.
He misleads Americans into thinking there is a third choice, which we all know there is not.
GJ has no support and no organization.
Just a few outside trolls who want to divide and confuse.
GJ speaks to confused liberals and is not conservative.
he is not prolife, nor will he end the fed.
He is not versed in monetary policy and has no idea what balancing a budget looks like.
His supporters claim he balanced NM budget but this was done on the backs of federal taxpayers and nothing more.
NM RECEIVES $2.45 for every $1.00 they send in. Thats 250% cash to play with! A 17 yo Paul supporter could balance the budget with that
much play.
GJ is a mislead. He is part of the same corrupt system, just a different side of the rotten faces it holds.
GJ is the lib side of BIG government. GJ is no differnet then BO or MR, just has a different delivery. GJ is for MORE humanitarian intervention over seas, which Paul is rabidly AGAINST. GJ wants to "get out of Afghanistan NOW!" but leave BASES OPEN and functioning behind that we man and finacially support.
GJ runs his campaigns in debt. This is a losing strategy. He will leave the stage owing millions of dollars to innocent staffers and inkeepers that gave his campaign credit expecting to be paid back.
Paul would NEVER leave the stage owing anyone money.
Besides, GJ is pro ABORTION and one can never be considered a "liberty" candidate when they ignore governments most precious mandate: to protect innocent life where ever it may be found.
How can one believe in protecting liberty but not life?

GJ is a mislead and is not smart enough to get between BO or MR on stage.
Only Ron Paul can debate them and WIN.

Thank you for all you did and do

Saluting you.

Liberty Movement is not about just one name or a few names.
It's bigger than that.

...I'm sure Patrick Henry is watching from above and pushing for GJ to be in the presidential debates.

Hey Liberty

Please forgive me for sounding so blunt but, don't you have someone in Canada to promote?
Why do you over and over and over keep hounding us with GP?
It has really become most annoying!

Enough already!

One question

Why is your big brother country sending Canadian soldiers to die and get injured in Afghanistan?

To restore the American Republic is also my job!

Realizing there are technically still some Canadian

soldiers in Afghanistan (about 950), it is not OUR big brother killing your soldiers, it is YOUR big brother Tom, YOURS. Why don't you get involved in your own country to help bring those remaining troops home? Why don't you help your own country as much as you CLAIM to be trying to help ours?

De criminalize Liberty!

Jefferson's picture

In

my observation over the last few years, I have noticed that it is not about support for any particular candidate. It is about how much attention (be it positive or negative) and exposure he can garner for himself.

It's like a toddler who constantly throws their sippy cup on the ground. They'll keep doing it as long as you pick it up. As long as you keep picking it up, he's got plenty of "love" for you. But stop picking it up, or dare say something out of frustration and you get labeled everything from a mossad/FBI agent, a sell out, to a Romney supporter.

If he can't manipulate you to do what he wants, then he usually throws a tantrum until he gets banned, and eventually let back.

I used to have some compassion for the guy before I began to see his true nature. I have plenty of personal faults, but this guy pretty much represents everything I stand against.

I've tuned in occasionally to see you two go rounds, and I'm telling you there's no use in trying to reason with him. He takes zero personal responsibility. Blames everyone and everything else. Thinks he's above the rules. His sense of entitlement is astounding. Takes advantage of people's good nature. Narcissism that knows no bounds. And a closet authoritarian, just salivating for some sense of power over others. (you should have seen how he acted when he was a mod) He's basically identical to the type of corrupt lying politicians we are trying to get out of office.

His "work" here would be the equivalent of me immersing myself in MEXICAN politics, joining one of their political forums, and telling them what to do 7 days a week. It's odd to say the least. (fatal attraction type of odd) I doubt he's even registered to vote in his own country.

As someone who's been there and done that, I would advise you to ignore him and he'd just go away, but no such luck. He thrives on the attention, one way or the other. I can only hope that he will eventually push the boundaries (as toddlers do) to the point of him getting a permanent time out. The attachment of his self esteem to this site is not only not healthy, it's strange.

I hope someday he'd get an actual paying job, produce something, and get involved locally, rather than see what kind of freebies he can get off of everyone else. Right now, I couldn't care less what he does. He's become a giant PITA with this "GeeJay" thing, and thinking he's Kasmir Polokski reincarnated..

Awesome... + millions Jefferson

I Love the picture It is so perfect! LL is also our very own forum stalker.

Do you remember when he signed up for that Ron Paul singles website and chased our very own D4L off of that site. The freak would not leave her alone. Ugh, he is creepy.

Hey Jefferson.....

Brilliant!
:)

Wow..

I don't think you could be any more dead on Mr/Mrs Jefferson!! Thank you for such clear, precise, and to the point explanation of Toms true intent: Attention. And I would just ignore him, but I'm to the point where I'd rather just help him along in getting to that point of "pushing boundaries" you speak of ;-)..Not that he needs much help with that. Love the Pic!!

De criminalize Liberty!

You are posting this not on your own website

How many times you had to write emails saying sorry to me and the owner of this site?

I kept them.

You have no shame!

People like you dwell on negativity -- feeding on it poisoning all people around them.
I keep away from you for many years once I found out your ways when I was moderating this site.

Do yourself a favour and get a life -- away from hating others.

Typically the person that endlessly repeats

"You have no shame" is the person that truly has no shame. Funny how you suggest you have emails about someone elses negativity, yet all one has to do to find yours is track your user history on this website. Do yourself a favor and stop with the shameless rhetoric and get a life -- Outside in the real world. Wow, you really are like the shameless flip flopping politicians in DC.

De criminalize Liberty!

Why?

it is your country that is sending them!
Why is that?
Not only that....GJ is for these damned wars so you are promoting the wrong guy!
You're shooting yourself in the foot!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

You're wrong....

about Johnson supporting the wars.

He was against Iraq from the beginning.

And - like Ron Paul - he was for the initial invasion of Afghanistan to remove the elements of Al Qaeda. Johnson has clearly stated on many - many - occasions that that deployment should have been over after six months. At that point, the mission there was complete.

He's against a war with Iran. Always has been.

The only place where Johnson made a questionable comment - to my knowledge - on foreign policy was the Kony situation in Africa. Even at that, Johnson said he would have only pursued action with the approval of Congress. If Ron Paul were in a position where he agreed with intervention - like a WWII situation - would he not use the military if Congress approved?

So, you're going to have to be more specific because Gary Johnson is on the right side of all major foreign policy issues.

Thank you dwalters

I stand corrected on that!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

I appreciate it...

holbrook! :-)

I wish you the best!

Above all else, please feel free to constructively criticize anything I have to say. I'm not always 100% right. I don't believe any of us are - to the dismay of the Establishment.

If government were to cease to exist tomorrow, the citizens would have to hold each other responsible. Accountability, IMO, is one of the most important tools we as people can use to progress towards a more independent, self-policing society.

Critical discussion is always welcomed. When performed constructively, all parties come out better off.

You made me smile.

:-)

Thank You! You made ME smile!
Too bad all the wrongs that people make ( myself included ) couldn't end this way!

Support NATO

To get access to the underwater US consumer & cronyist deals from Washington.

Don't do it and you will suffer.

Simple as that.

Oh yeah, .. and to make the world safe for democracy....

"Boxer" = the American Public

You reference Animal Farm. Boxer is the ultra productive, incredibly strong and loyal draughthorse that carries the weight of the people and the cleptocracy.

His loyalty gets him in trouble. The Pigs (ruling class) are upset when he defends someone who questions their authority just by being popular.

In the end, when he is no longer productive, they send him to the glue factory. Perfect metaphor for the majority. Working hard, trusting, loyal, unquestioning... and being sold into serfdom.
