Gary Johnson appeals to Ron Paul supporters

Libertarian Presidential candidate, former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson came to Tampa, Florida Saturday to speak to a group of like-minded people seeking support for his presidential candidacy.

On Saturday, Johnson made his appeal to Ron Paul supporters at the PAUL Festival at the Florida State Fairgrounds.

The governor started out early in his speech trying to reach out proclaiming, “I want you all to know, I am a Dr. Paul fan”. This, of course, drew a large applause.

He continued by saying, “Ron Paul asked me for my endorsement in 2008, and I readily gave him my endorsement”.

Speaking to an enthusiastic crowd, many libertarians, Johnson laid out his message, a very familiar one to the Liberty Movement- Let’s stop the spending, let’s end the wars, let’s abide by the Constitution of the United States.

He appeals

to this Ron Paul supporter about as much as Robby Wells and his plan B.
Not at all.

God is watching you Tomass...

and he is not happy!

**************************************************************

I'm sorry but progressives

I'm sorry but progressives like Gary Johnson do not appeal to me.

Ron Paul did NOT ask Gary for his endorsement

How is this lying hack not being called out on this?? I dont believe for a second that Ron Paul PERSONALLY asked for this pandering scumbag's endorsement!

misleading title

its clear CFR puppet GJ has little appeal to Ron Paul supporters

He can appeal all he wants

He can appeal all he wants to. REQUEST DENIED!

Gary is a wolf is sheep's clothing.

Just wondering...LegalizeLiberty...How is Gary polling where you live in Canada? Because in the USA he is not even outside of the margin of error. Guess Ron Paul folks just are not sold yet. And for good reason!

Never play with a Johnson you cannot trust. :)

Ron Paul 2012 - It's Almost Here!

I'm heading over to all the GJ forums and spamming them all.

Pay backs a bitch.

Do any even exist? lol

Do any even exist? lol

Ron Paul 2012 - It's Almost Here!

Good luck finding one

I applaud your effort though and agree the blowback is needed.

Blessings )o(

You two are right....there is none. :(

Oh well, I have better things to do I guess.

But.....

has Dr Paul endorsed Gary Johnson???

He will.

Just wait.

Nope!

But Johnson sure likes to pretend so..

whatever

we all know legalize won't be allowed a part when ron paul begins his new internet-based project. ron paul announced that in a bloomberg interview, i guess some people just completely glossed over it. see ya vanish in 3 2 1 countdown, legalize.

I'm intrigued

"when ron paul begins his new internet-based project. ron paul announced that in a bloomberg interview"

Have a link?

"Alas! I believe in the virtue of birds. And it only takes a feather for me to die laughing."

it's about 2 months ago on one of the business channels,

bloomberg if i remember right.. there are too many ron paul videos and i couldn't find it since youtube's search tools are so lacking. i believe the reason ron paul hasn't talked about this in length is because he doesn't want to distract away from the tampa events. after this, his future plans should be picked up again in due time

OMG

Legalizeliberty...i cant vote for johnson because i dont like homosexuality...or gun control...but im sure you can convince 10 million people to vote for him if you keep trying...it'll be kinda hard tho considering you are just about the only one who likes him....keep it up bro

Gun

control? When Gary Johnson was governor he signed a bill legalizing concealed carry. Don't just blow stuff out your ass, come with facts. You sound like a complete idiot saying that Gary Johnson supports gun control maybe your confusing GJ with Obama or Romney. Your supposed to be a liberty minded person but you want the government to ban same sex marriage? Just because they can't get married doesn't mean they won't be together, and besides if you don't like gay people then don't interact with them, simple as that. What does Ron Paul say about same sex marriage? Let the communities and states handle that.

Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our Liberty. -Thomas Jefferson

You are right about Dr. Paul's position....

And Gary's position is that the federal government should FORCE states to recognize gay marriage. Last year he held the same position as Ron. This is one of his many flip flops, and in this case he flopped in the wrong direction.

hard to tell

the 3 CFR puppets apart. Whose puppeteer might this be? http://www.cfr.org/experts/world/douglas-turner/b11203

Give it a damn rest! We have

Give it a damn rest! We have delegates in Tampa fighting for Ron Paul to be nominated or at least heard and you're sitting up there in friggin' Canada doing your best to ruin morale and divide the movement. Do you have no sense of respect at all???

Blessings )o(

I hate to break it to you guys,

but Ron's campaign for President is over. Mittens is getting the nomination and Ron will not speak at the convention because he won't endorse Mittens. If you think something else is going to happen stop fooling yourself.It was a valiant effort, but it's time to move on. In just a few short months we will vote and Ron Paul is not going to be on the ballot, but Gary Johnson can be. If you guys are tired of Gary Johnson threads stop reading them. This guy is just trying to get some support for a like minded candidate so that Romney and Obama aren't the only choices out there.

...

I hate to break it it to YOU jferrier but there are close to 60,000 registered members here. If there was any support here for him you'd know it but there isn't. You see Gary has been dissected here and not passed the acid test. There are only really 2 people continually pushing GJ here because all the rest of the spammers have been banned.

Virtually all this posters GJ post's get either do not get commented on or get slammed like a hooker does when the Navy pulls into port=repeatedly and with no real love.

November 6th 2012 I voted for Dr.Ron Paul
"We must remember, elections are short-term efforts. Revolutions are long-term projects." ~ Ron Paul

None of the choices are his

None of the choices are his anyway. He lives in Canada and can't even vote here. That's probably why he has no respect when we ask him to mind his own business and quit messing in our politics.

Blessings )o(

Funny...

When I posted activist post to have #LetRonPaulSpeak trending yesterday on Twitter YOU down-voted it -- showed me you are in fact a die hard supporter of Romney/Ryan ticket pretending to be RP supporter here.

You Romney folks fear Gary Johnson more than Ron Paul.
3rd place showing on Nov. 6th will return your GOP to the 3rd party status it held in the 19th century.

I am an avid Ron Paul

I am an avid Ron Paul supporter legalize..You know that. And I do fear Johnson...Why? Because he is a fake liberty candidate and a CFR pawn that some liberty minded people are gullible enough to believe.

Aside from that...Johnson is no threat. He will not even get 1% on election day. Have you been able to secure his ballot spot in Canada yet?

Ron Paul 2012 - It's Almost Here!

Tom

Please, from one DP Family member to another. Can you PLEASE just wait until the convention is over? Please?

That is all we are asking here. Please just hold off until after the convention okay?

Is what I am asking here really just too much?

#RNCisajoke

...if they don't #letRonPaulspeak my friend.

You are hurting the libterty movement.

Stop acting like a child and calling everyone who disagrees with you a Romney supporter. If you really are a Gary Johnson supporter then you have done more damage to his campaign over the summer with your posts than any Romney plant could've dreamed of. Oh and I must be a Romney/Ryan troll pretending to be a Ron Paul supporter even though I took the time to become elected as a PCP and show up to my state convention to elect Paul delegates. I guess I should have just sat at home like you and spent every day posting about a useless third party candidate instead of fighting to take over the Republican party.

+ 1,000,000

Yes you read that right plus+ one million.

I think what we are witnessing by this post is the OPs overpowering out of control narcissism because today is Ron Pauls festival in Tampa that we are trying to listen to while scanning for the latest news of the delegates and how we can out maneuver them tomorrow.

He just cannot deal with not being the center of attention and his actions are proved by this post.
