Gary Johnson's Executive Experience Matters!Submitted by Anonymous Liber... on Sun, 09/30/2012 - 13:41
Someone posted that Ron Paul's experience in congress trumps Gary Johnson's experience so that is why we should write-in Ron Paul instead of checking the box next to Gary Johnson's name on our ballot. I parse the data for your perusal:
19 members of Congress went on to be President. 3 were also Governors and 9 were also Senators before becoming President for a total of 7 that were only members of Congress without being a Governor or Senator. John Quincy Adams was a Representative only after being President so that takes it down to 6 members of Congress that went on to be President that were not Senators or Governors before becoming President. There is more though: James A. Garfield is actually the only sitting Representative elected to the Presidency!
22 Governors went on to be President. In recent history the list of former Governors who occupied the White House includes: George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, and Jimmy Carter.
I think it is safe to say that executive experience in government is far more of an indicator of who will occupy the White House than experience in the legislative branch.
Gary Johnson is a two term Governor with more time as an executive in government than Obama and Romney combined. Gary Johnson has the experience to be the President! Vote for Gary Johnson!
