This thread makes no sense if Gary Johnson didn't ask for an

endorsement.

And there is nothing in the heading about thanking Amash for everything he does - just a backhanded slap at Gary Johnson.

from an article about johnson

http://communities.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/capitali...

"But that's not all. Johnson also supported subsidies for some companies in New Mexico. Justin Amash, who is known as the "next Ron Paul" in the context of being in congress, has bashed Johnson about this recently."

no wonder some don't like amash

edit: if pussies want to down-vote for quoting, mind pussies elaborate?

I have no interest in down-grading your comment,

but I will point out that what Amash is calling "subsidies" and "stealing other people's money" were actually tax credits.

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2011/jul/...

IMO, the tax money I pay is not "other people's money", but my own; and if anyone gives any of that back, I certainly wouldn't call him a thief.

Justin gets some marks for an original critique, but this is no better than the usual "A vote for anyone bur Romney is really a vote for Obama" line.

Question - Did Gary ask Amash for an endorsement?

If so, can you provide a source? If not, this is a worthless post/topic.

..

No. this thread is about thanking justin for all he does. the least you could do is read the topic and follow directions of the thread.

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Rand Paul 2016

If you read the title, you

If you read the title, you would see that it says "Representative Justin Amash tells Gary Johnson NO!". So if Gary never asked Justin for an endorsement to begin with, the title of the thread is irrelevant. Justin endorsed Ron Paul a long time ago. If you'd been following the campaign since day 1 like I have, you would know that. It's pointless to bring Gary Johnson into this if Gary never asked for his endorsement.

lol

sorry i havent been following as long as you.
but i have been able to vote and help put paul in his seat for 30 years in our district.

and youre right, i could have wrote, "rep amash tells mitt romney "NO"...and you wouldnt have said anything.
thats the beauty of it.
I wrote GJ so the confused libtards that follow johnson who also like justin will see justin in no way will endorse johnson.

sorry i have offended you so and caused you such distraction that you felt you had to make your point in three separate posts while ignoring the topic which is thanking justin for all hes done.which you have yet to do.
how about you go create your own thread disputing this one!!
so we can thank justin and use this thread for which it was meant.

Rand Paul 2016

Well, Duh! Amash is a Republican

while Johnson is a Libertarian. Of course Republicans don't endorse non-Republicans; it's foolish to expect it.

Now that the Convention is over, and Justin has endorsed Mitt Romney, have you thanked him for that, too?

Get with the times

No one was asking Justin to endorse Johnson to begin with, yet again. I have thanked Justin in the past when he endorsed Ron back when it mattered. I assume you probably weren't part of the group of people here at the DP who wrote emails or called his office thanking him for his endorsement. You're about a year too late. Get with the times man. It's August 2012, not September 2011 (when Amash endorsed Ron Paul's 2012 presidential campaign).

How can someone tell another individual "no" when...

the original person was never asked a question?

BTW, the same day Amash was posting on his FB page about Johnson, Amash also was praising Paul Ryan.

My gut tells me another Romney endorsement is coming after the convention. The Establishment realized Rand's endorsement was inconsequential because of the timing. So, they had to go after another supposed politician in the Liberty Movement.

I bet Amash's endorsement of Romney comes after the Convention. This will be the GOP's 2nd attempt to garner support for Romney through such actions. Although, better timing than the first time, Amash was never in the position Rand was in - Rand made a promise early on to endorse the eventual nominee. Amash did nothing of the sort - to my knowledge.

So, if Amash does endorse - which he seems to be posturing to do - IMO, it's worse than Rand's decision to do the same.

Liberty Movement > Establishment

I think most Ron Paul Republicans can see what happened to Rand after he endorsed Romney. The Liberty Movement turned their collective backs to him and have not thought twice about it.

I think Amash would do himself well by not endorsing anyone, rather than endorsing Romney.

By not endorsing anyone, he may piss off the establishment, but he retains the respect of the Liberty movement.

By endorsing Romney, he appeases the establishment but loses the respect of the Liberty movement.

Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof

I agree...

Many times politicians think big money always equals big votes. With generic candidates the amount of money spent is directly proportional to the number of votes received.

However, when you alienate the base that originally got you elected, it can bite you in the ass.

It won't help Amash to endorse Romney - not at all. Even the Republican base largely doesn't like Romney.

What is to gain - other than promises of future campaign cash or other benefits?

It just seems to me that Amash is trying to distance himself from the LP by criticizing Johnson while he is getting cozy with the GOP by talking up Paul Ryan.

Amash may be writing something on the proverbial wall. We'll see.

Nice job Amash, holding strong earns you respect

I support Amash and have donated to his campaign.

I support Ron Paul, donated and volunteered extensively in his last campaign as well as this one.

I donated to Rand Paul's senate campaign, but can't donate to him again since he endorsed Romney (an establishment figurehead who represents everything we want to change in the GOP). I will NOT vote for Romney in the general, even though I'm a GOP precinct delegate (hear me establishment GOP??).

I donated to Kerry Bentivolio and plan to donate and even volunteer - I love to see fresh Ron Paul Republican blood mixing it up.

I will see what Dr. Ron Paul recommends or who he endorses before deciding what to do in November.

This BS ia a joke, Ronny aint

This BS ia a joke, Ronny aint running any more and If the delegates nominate him I'm sure he would decline. Rand just endorsed another douche Barr, and the GOP is trying to throw the LIberty movement off a cliff,if Ron is the nominee I'll vote for him......

if not GARY JOHNSON IS THE ONLY CHOICE, get that through your fucking skull, IF RON PAUL HAS NO WAY OF BEING PRESIDENT WHO WILL YOU VOTE FOR????

Ron Paul

My vote is my voice. Slice it any way you want, Ron Paul is my president.
Oh that was a period at the end there buddy!

exactly

dumb sentence from a dumb man, if he is not the nominee who will you vote for?...Ron Paul then your vote gets thrown away and laughed at, instead of making a mark that we are fed up with the fake left right paradigm and start a new party rather trying to crash a religous, neo con base thats more ignorant then the DNC Libertarian party need to be held up as a viable option so we dont have to sue, and disagree with your own party then fight the rest of the collective it takes too long and is efficient especially when a vessel is sitting there untarnished and ready to be valued as something special and viable. Start thinking reality, your cute remarks wont save you from a FEMA camp and bullets

After the convention I have a

After the convention I have a feeling Amash will side with Rand and Mike Lee in endorsing Romney.

Gary Johnson's turn

I have no doubt that Ron Paul is still planning a big surprise for the convention. It doesn't look like he will receive the nomination. Gary Johnson will be on the ballot in all 50 states. There are few Libertarians that really warm up to Romney and even less that warm up to Obama. It is time for Dr. Paul to pass the torch of liberty to Gary Johnson, the best Libertarian candidate we've ever had and let Gary Johnson sprint to the finish line.

I Endorse Ron Paul

...and that has not changed. Thank you. I had that in my post thanking Justin Amash yesterday. Hope you don't mind me posting it again here in case anyone did not see it.

Thank You Justin for sticking to your principles and only endorsing
true conservative who will stand up for life and liberty- constitutionally, the way it was meant to be.
Thank You for not endorsing any other then Ron Paul and keeping your voting record so pure and transparent.

Bad move

Have you seen his voting record Justin? Which way are we going here?

Followed up by an endorsement

Then he followed up by an endorsement of Paul Ryan for Vice President.

It was NOT

an endorsement.

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien

No stranger to endorsements...

Amash supported McCain in 2008 after Ron Paul dropped out, and McCain was a lot further from Amash's views than Ryan is (except maybe on torture). Denouncing GJ immediately after praising Ryan pretty much is an endorsement.

Actually the Ron Paul statement was posted after the Paul Ryan one. Check his Facebook.
