Johnson Says Troops Over There Are "Keeping us safe."

"Our thoughts and our gratitude are also with the amazing men and women of our military who are putting themselves on the line every day to keep us safe." - Gary Johnson, Sept. 11, 2011


Kowtowing to the cruel lie that is keeping us in chains. No, Gary, blowing Iraqi babies to bits and bombing Afghan wedding parties is not keeping us "safe." This is a fundamental part of the Ron Paul Revolution.

What's next? We need to fight them there so we don't have to fight them here? Civilian casualties are unfortunate but unavoidable?

Political courage is for every day of the week, not for when no one is watching and waiting to jump down your throat. When millions were watching is exactly when truth-tellers like Ron Paul tell us that they don't hate us for our freedoms...they hate us "because we're OVER THERE!"

See: "blowback."

You cannot defend the war machine and be a Libertarian. War is the enemy of liberty.

""Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes. And armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few." James Madison

GJ: End Unconstitutional Wars

GJ wants to end the unconstitutional wars and bring our troops home.

Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof

This post is an intelligence test that most will fail.

Find the words "Over There" on this page or the page that it links to in Gary Johnson's words. Those words were added by this author to change what Gary said and to create a smear. This is the worst kind of yellow journalism. As a vet I am also insulted that I signed a contract where I put my life on the line to defend the constitution and defend america and its citizens and you find that to be contemptuous.

Get a grip people. This post is typical of the smear that you see on Gary Johnson and if you are the least bit capable of critical thinking you will see right through this.

LOL Bush never said Saddam was responsible for 9/11 either

He said "they came to us wanting war, and war is what they got." The intelligence test is in knowing what is clearly implied without saying it.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

"This post is an intelligence test that most will fail."

Pass or fail, I will write-in Ron Paul. My gut is never wrong.

I will respect those who vote for GJ if their state does not have write-in.

GJ: "The fight against those who would do us harm continues today, and it is a fight we must carry out with the same determination that was so magnificently displayed by the heroes of 9/11."

I will not speak for others... IMO, GJ statement is not forthtelling, and perpetuates what I am against.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul


You are absolutely right Sue.
He was pandering.
RP would have said to them(military): I seek to bring you all home and THAT would be my real thanks to you. I would not want to send you into political wars with out end, with no clear enemy that goes on and on... NO!
I, would use the 14k state department employees that are on the gvt dole, to start earning their keep and give the tax payer their moneys worth and keep us OUT of costly, deadly, annoying wars!"

Instead GJ says, "thanks for keeping us safe." ????
GJ is just another side of BIG GOVERNMENT authoritarian face and NOT ONCE do his supporters defend him by quoting him or a link to a speech he gave, (If they do link its some rinky dink blog out in BFE)like we did with RP... No. what we get from GJ supporters who talk out of their a$$e$ but never say anything that can be used to defend GJ is names and BS.

They(GJS) make mindless and endless excuses but never really say anything... make sense?
Liberal dems are the same way. They cant draw the line to constitutional role of gvt and sound money..
The GJ libs only liked Paul for his NON intervention foreign policy, and GJ even FAILS on that!!!lol

aint that a kicker.
GJ is for intervention "sometimes" and will "never rule anything out".
Instead he should have said "I will look to our constitution and let it guide and grant me AUTHORITY for any action my admin takes"

The jontards REFUSE to see "not ruling anything out" is a neocon phrse!!!!lol
Just like "I will take nothing off the table"...lol

The mindless libs will learn one way or another. but they certainly havent learned Dr. Pauls lesson 101, never COMPROMISE and bow to the lesser.

GJ "wont rule anything out"... aint that rich Sue?
Thanks for posting.

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

Rand Paul 2016

Excellent analysis. I really enjoyed reading it.

thanks! : )

Release the Sandy Hook video.

You guys are getting a little

You guys are getting a little bit crazy in here, He is just showing a little recognition for our armed forces, Seriously, Why do you have to blow up a comment and take it out of context?

A little appreciation would go "I want to express appreciation"

You know good and goddam well what Johnson was doing: pandering with the "keeping us safe" hot button words.

Many people have died because people believed those kinds of words. You Johnson trolls (why are you still here anyway?) have as little regard for truth as your candidate does. Seriously.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

You were pandering with the words "over there"

I don't see the words "over there" anywhere in his statement but you added them to your title and even went on to tell us all about "over there". This is a dishonest slander that would only fill a void for those that wish to have something negative to say and can't find anything negative to say.

I was the first on the web to post the "keep Gitmo open"...

quote from Gary Johnson. So, why do I plan to vote for him? Simple, Johnson has moved from these positions following the public's lead. That does not say much for his character, but it does make him a good crowbar to pry the two party duopoly apart.

Remember, Ron Paul is not perfect, either. He had no problem using truther Alex Jones as a springboard, but has just as certainly trashed truthers when he felt it benefited him, just as he ducked the birther issue, even as the evidence piled up that Obama is not legally eligible.


You state: "That does not say much for his character", and then go on to lie about RP and compare GJ to him??? GJ is NOTHING like RP.
In no way. They come to some of the same conclusions but get there differently. VERY different.

bob-45....another confused libtard who gave up on principle, the one thing Paul said never to do..
Please show a link when Paul bashed truthers.
He distanced himself, nothing more. Paul bashes No one. we all know that. Libtard Truthers were painting Paul into a corner and he backed them off in a respectful manner as always. are you a libtard truther? What if Israel set up the US gvt and duhbya??? Then what?
RP has no authority to make a "birther" judgement, he was in the house at the time. RP would never comment on such an issue, its not his place.

You libtards really do not understand the role of gvt do you.

Vote and shill for GJ even though you admit his character and philosophies are FLAWED, and has since come around!!!lololol!
Typical lib
Then you create a post to make other libtards think 3 corporations pulled out of sponsoring the debates BECAUSE GJ was not included in them. That was a blatant lie and no where did the LONE link give an explanation for their ending of support. The all the other cnfused libtards joined you with out 1 explanation of why they dropped out, given.
Even after reading the article you posted all the other libs just merrily jumped on your bandwagon.

These are the same libtards who in 08 tried to link Dennis Kucinich to RP.
GJ is closer to Dennis in philosophy then he is to RP.
GJ and DK are librals, bigger gvt intervention for some things- is ok.
What a JOKE!

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

Rand Paul 2016

Nice rant. Johnsonistas do play fast and loose with the truth

...now that you mention it. Ron Paul teaches say what you mean and if someone doesn't like it tough toenails. They might come back in a year and say "you were right."

Release the Sandy Hook video.

what a ridiculous comment

Ron Paul didn't use ANYONE as a springboard. Ron Paul IS the springboard.
Who leads the cry for sound money and the end of fiat currency?
Who leads the cry for non-interventionism?
Who leads the cry for protection of civil liberties?
What YOU FAIL to acknowledge is that Ron Paul stays on message. You have your head twisted by distractions, no wonder you'll now vote for gj.
ONLY Ron Paul.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

LIBERTARIAN is the answer to

LIBERTARIAN is the answer to all those questions

Dr. Ron Paul - Libertarian Presidential Candidate (1988)

You think they are not

keeping you safe..from the countless enemies that have been created by their very own presence there.
"Just come home"..(RP).

"Hell is empty, and all the devils are here" (Shakespeare)
RP 2012~ Intellectual Revolution.

Now think about that. If there presence has made countless

enemies, wouldn't their continuing presence create even more countless enemies?

Release the Sandy Hook video.


I would expect that's why Johnson wants to bring them home.

"Hell is empty, and all the devils are here" (Shakespeare)
RP 2012~ Intellectual Revolution.

Very disheartening statement.

From the candidate I planned on voting for???

Now that Dr. Paul is gone.

But I can't hang with a statement like this.

Probably won't vote at all now.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

You can write in Ron Paul in many states now and it will be

counted. What state are you in?

Release the Sandy Hook video.

write in ron paul

Rockin' the FREE world in Tennessee since 1957!
9/11 Truth.

The rest of the statemetn is even worse.

"The fight against those who would do us harm continues today, and it is a fight we must carry out with the same determination that was so magnificently displayed by the heroes of 9/11."

Pure Bush.

Release the Sandy Hook video.


The GJ supporter is a liberal dem who was taught by RP but did not learn.
GJ is the libatrd messiah now that theyve seen obammas true colors.
but in reality, if GJ wasnt running they would gleefully vote for Obama.

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

Gary is against the wars -you guys are lying like republicans

I would have sent a special ops team to get osama too instead of wars, blood, and treasure -soveriegn country my ass I'm taking the pos out even if he's in the GD Vatican -I know for fact Ron would have gone after the sob too and squashed him like a gnat. Attack others and you lose your freedom and sovereignty and life too in osamas case..

Government is supposed to protect our freedom, our property, our privacy, not invade it. Ron Paul 2007

Osama wasn't in Iraq,

now you Johnson trolls are really sounding like Bush.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

It's easy to be 'aganst the wars' when you are speaking to

a Ron Paul crowd, not so easy when you are speaking at a 9/11 memorial. That's when it takes guts. That's when Ron Paul would not pander and falter.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

So Ron Paul went to a 9/11

So Ron Paul went to a 9/11 memorial ceremony and insulted the people attending? Really? Tell me more.

Telling the truth to people is an insult and lying to

their faces is not? Spoken like a true Johnson supporter.

Release the Sandy Hook video.


call them what they are, sue.
confused libs with no home and are clinging to the LP because dem est threw their OWS asses out!
lib dems need a home and it should NOT be in the RP movement.

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

"Gary is against the wars"

That statement is a lie. So "humanitarian wars" aren't wars.. They're a family get together at the local beach?

Keeping bases in Afghanistan is part of why we were attacked to begin with. If you don't adhere to the idea of blowback you're part of the problem.
