Gary Johnson Just Crowd Surfed At The End Of His Town Hall (not joking)

The last question at his town hall was "if we promise not to drop you will you crowd surf". When the question was asked I thought it was ludicrous. But GJ went ahead and did it. After thinking about it for a second, I saw the brilliance in it. Maybe it will go viral and get him some more name recognition. I'm sure someone will come up w/ a clever nickname and, again, hopefully he'll get a lot more recognition as a result.

We don't drop our candidates!

There may be plenty of fake or nascent libertarians,
but I don't know of any former libertarians.

To me this shows he has trust

To me this shows he has trust in the people and should be looked at in a more relative perspective

Gary has had just as much time to read Ron Paul's books

as we've had. Do you get the impression he has? I don't.

This is cool, it shows Gary

This is cool, it shows Gary is one of us not one of them.

Yeah, kinda like

Bill Clinton playing his saxophone. It's called pandering.

Someone needs to ask the other candidates to crowd surf

...then drop them on their head. lol

From what I gather, that's

From what I gather, that's already happened a number of times to both "major" candidates.

You made my day

I laughed so hard reading that comment, lol.

That man climbed the Mount Everest.

I suppose I'll be voting for GJ this time but I have little hope that others will follow my example. Things like this do not help to make him look more presidential. although Something needs to happen to break him into the media cycle.

No cult of personality here... GJ is clearly about the issues.

This must have been after he ended the Fed, right?

Fight the Ron Paul blackout on the Daily Paul (now 'P AU L'), put his removed poster back as your avatar:


Yes. Crowd surfing on request is definitely something that I look for in a leader.

This is why I can't vote libertarian...

God that was stupid... If the libertarian party wants to be taken seriously having their candidate crowd surf in a 3-piece suit is definitely NOT the way to do it.

Very Substantive Reason!

I'm glad you won't vote for him despite the fact that he'll end the wars, balance the budget (in 1 year), end the fed, and restore civil liberties. We need more voters like you who care about the *real* issues.

Ohhh, you're no fun! :X

Ohhh, you're no fun! :X



That was almost as good as.....

When Ron Paul bit the head of a bat off during a rally.


I don't know about a bat, but I bet he would bite the head off a Bernanke doll if we asked him.

You must

be one of those people that has PBS(Pucker Butt Syndrome).

This is something you can expect from a guy who has climbed many a mountain including to the summit of Mount Everest. This just shows the guys willingness and openness to new ideas. This is a good thing. Apparently he realized a long time ago that it isn't worth living if you can not have a little fun or be risky here and there. Good for him. Being serious all the time is just unhealthy.

Totally staged

"Rock Star GJ!"

Doncha get it? Just prooves to me, this is all a charade. The beauty in Ron Paul rEVOLution was how genuine it was. Ron Paul was telling us, "There is a problem, and WE have to fix it, and it's NOT an easy fix.. you're going to have to do things you don't like or don't want to do, or never thought you would do.. but if you want to keep your Republic, we need to get in the GOP to fight, so make it fun, have fun with it, because you're going to be facing some of the dirties politics on Earth."

So here we have GOP GJ, with his bread and puppets act.. who needs to join the GOP? Who needs to be a delegate? Who needs to get a committee seat? Who needs to fix anything? LET'S PARTY!!!


Probably brought to us by the same folks who took Ron Paul's name to make P.A.U.L. fest. Posers.

Still, I will remain fighting for their freedom to enjoy their party.

Yes! Mitt Romney

would never stage anything.

You've got to be kidding me

GJ is under the influence of Mitt and feels he needs to stage his campaign too?

"Just prooves to me, this is all a charade."

Look at Romney and Obama. Talk about a charade! The DNC predicted Romney would win the debate two days before. The results were already known. That is a charade, not this bit of spontaneity and trust.

Imagine Romney crowd surfing. Oops, dropped Mittens. Sorry about that broken leg Mr. Bain Capital.

Yes, it's a charade

But it's also what is on the table and we pay attendtion so we can fight for liberty using what is said as grounds.

Imagine Romney crowd surfing, Oops, dropped Mittens. RESTORE THE REPUBLIC, no apologies.

Turn your head and look down....

....you see that gigantic stick behind you? Reach around and pull it out of your butt. I'm as big a cynical asshole as anybody, but c'mon man, lighten up FFS!
