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

http://race42012.com/2011/09/11/gov-gary-johnson-statement-o...

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

Johnson

The bottom line is that he is not going to get elected. What is he going to do after the election????

..Is he going to travel around speaking at college campuses? ...or speaking to Vet groups? .... etc.?

donvino

.

Many of us joined the GOP to work from the inside like Paul asked us to.
The others will be locked out because they were misled and drank the lib koolaide from GJ.
They will realize by election time, if most havent all ready that GJ is more of the same with a different voice.

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

Rand Paul 2016

This Poster Proves To Me That I Support RP And Really Do

not have anything in common with most of his supporters in the subject areas of sanity, fairness, truthfulness, reality and love of country.

Would it have been better for GJ to say "You American soildiers over there are a bunch of murderers"? Don't think so - I don't agree with our intervention military, but I have nothing at all against our military men and women who follow orders and keep their oath.

In the realm of national defense, could it be possible to deal with an eminent threat using a drone? I wouldn't want to misspeak and say no then become POTUS and end up using that resource. The man was making sure he wasn't BSing anybody and I can appreciate that.

Go look at an afghan child with a bullet through his head

and shut the fuck up.

I for one will be hitting Gary with a bullhorn if he gets

anywhere near me on his "campaign trail" to step down.

If Gary had real integrity or a shred of real love for saving this country both he and Gray would both step down and let the LP nominate Dr.Ron Paul.

We Can't Nominate Dr. Paul

First, Gary Johnson wouldn't be running if Ron Paul was nominated by the GOP or by the LP. He has said as much, and I believe him.

Further, the LP would have nominated Ron Paul if Ron Paul would have re-joined the party (although technically he's a life member) and said that he wanted it. But Ron Paul made it clear he doesn't want the nomination.

Judge Gray is a hero with guts who put his career on the line to stick up for our rights. He's not a quitter. And, Gary, while not Ron Paul, is so far ahead of Obama or Romney, it is no contest.

My conclusion is that you are an operative for the statists, or one of the dominant parties, trying to sabotage the movement by starting a fight.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Better yet hold up a photo of an Iraqi infant with his

head gone. THIS IS "KEEPING US SAFE?!!!"

Release the Sandy Hook video.

you were -2 I had to throw you an upvote. There are some real turds lurking around here. That is what is missing is the actual carnage on the innocent that the millions of TV Jersey Shore type boneheads that never think about war because of the media blackout on what really goes on. Start showing pictures of innocent children,men and women that are non combatants blown to mush by drone strikes everyday on the news and the mindset towards war would change pretty fast.

I agree. And I can relate. This is so disturbing, even to some others of us that we have otherwise to accept the downvotes.

If you really wanted to get people focused on war..

Buy a billboard and put a war picture like that up on it.

People want war because they are too stupid to understand what it is.

Too many people still don't have the guts to look at this.

Dumb and numb ignorance is so MUCH more comfortable to continue talking in the abstract.

I've forced myself to look at similar

photos. I have never been for war unless it was the last resort and in defense of us.. and I don't mean in defense of our economy or some other trumped up cause.

I was already convinced that war is bad. Looking at the pictures I did set it forever in my mind. I didn't feel I had to look but I wanted to so that I could really understand what the price was.

I'll never have to look at another picture because I'll never forget the ones I have seen.

Sorry but atrocoties and war crimes depicted in the photos

white phosphorous not to mention depleted uranium are what needs to be force fed down Americas throat every night just after dinnertime.Just like they did with Vietnam.That would change some minds. People like Lyndsey Graham need to have their head thumped for warmongering.

No apologies needed.

I've looked at what I'm sure is similar stuff. I'd like to be able to sleep well tonight.

People do need to force themselves to look at it though.. I think other than experiencing it for yourself, it's the only real way people who promote it or condone it in some way will understand the extreme gruesomeness and finality of it all.

RT: "Would you be doing what President Obama is doing right now, would that include drone strikes, special operations teams that go into sovereign nations without their knowledge?" Gary Johnson: "I wouldn't want to misspeak, I wouldn't want to rule that out"

disgusting. Can you see Ron Paul saying this in a million years?

of course not. He courage of his convictions.

IN before "if you are looking for the PERFECT candidate..."

Release the Sandy Hook video.

But he didn't mean "over there!" He meant the drones were

for the Coast Guard!
