Gary Johnson on C-SPAN today (Great interview)

While I was struggling with the idea of writing in Dr. Paul in November, I've made up my mind now to vote for Gary Johnson.

His interview on C-SPAN today was wonderful.
Here is a link:

He nailed every subject that was brought up to him and he should be allowed into those presidential debates.

I find Johnson to be consistent regarding liberty and he is fully qualified to be the Libertarian candidate for president.

One good line he used today was regarding a question of a "wasted vote" if people voted for him.

He said since there is no appreciable difference between Romney and Obama, a vote for either of them is actually the wasted vote.

Then he invited everyone to "waste" their vote on him and he would be the next president of the United States.

Ron Paul was mentioned several times over the course of this interview.

I agree with Dr. Paul when he said a few weeks ago the Gary Johnson is a wonderful candidate who everyone should take a look at.

Let's remember that no party or candidate is absolutely perfect, but the Libertarians are as close to the cause for liberty as any other choice we have this year.

Therefore I plan on voting for Gary Johnson in November as the only viable protest against the corrupt 2-party stranglehold on the American political process.

And I have a feeling Dr. Paul will be voting for the Libertarians this year as well.

I think he would have supported the Libertarian candidate Bob Barr in 2008, but Barr let him down after promising to appear at the National Press Club meeting but then disrespected Dr. Paul by never showing up.

I gotta say...

That impromptu laugh that Gary made when asked the first question about "what's missing" between the two major party candidates and his answer "how about the Truth for starters" says it all... expressed my sentiments perfectly...

I've been trying to make up my mind about Johnson lately since I have been a die-hard "write inner" after having written in RP last election... It appears to me that the Doc "exited stage right" and now we are left to pursue Liberty as best we see fit... Johnson has been fighting in the trenches, he did good work in NM and right now I don't have a good reason not to vote for him...

I added a link - At the time I posted this...

...C-SPAN did not have a link yet.

How do you like those apples?

Comparing Gary Johnson and Ron Paul is like comparing Milton Friedman and Murray Rothbard. Both are popularly refereed to as "libertarian economist". Though they are similar, they are different. Like comparing red apples to yellow apples.

That is a very fair analogy.

That is a very fair analogy. I don't think Gary Johnson is an enemy to the liberty movement as some people claim. He certainly is no Ron Paul, but I still think he is a net positive and I will happily cast my vote for him here in California.

liberty lover in Nor Cal!

Thank you

Right now Gary is better than Ron Paul -- because he is on the campaign trail educating people! -- he did not give up.
