Instead of pushing us to support GJ - Can't we push GJ to support us?Submitted by Bill Gillingham on Fri, 09/07/2012 - 14:37
To start - I don't support Gary Johnson... yet.
It occurred to me yesterday that our resistance to Gary might be because we have learned from Ron Paul not to settle - not to compromise.
Ron didn't vote yes on bills that he agreed with 85% - yet, we have Gary Johnson folks telling us 'He is 85% Ron Paul!' This really puts us in a tough position.
Instead of brow-beating us to support Johnson - why are we not brow-beating Johnson to support us?
Can we not come up with our objections (demands if you will) - that, if met, we can get behind him.
Of course - he'll never be 100% Ron Paul... so, there is a bit of a flaw in my logic... But we should be spending our time getting Johnson as close to 100% as possible - and the Johnson folks should work for the same.
- My first demand is to bring all troops home.
- End drone strikes
- Dialog / Trade with all/any country
Anyone want to make a list?
