Someone Please Explain Why This Board Is Anti-GJSubmitted by Monkburn on Mon, 10/22/2012 - 01:33
Okay, I am a registered Libertarian, voted for RP in the last election (yes, that's right, I wrote him in). It seems he has come close to endorsing GJ, as well. Other persons I know who are long term libertarians (using a small "l" there, notice) all think that the GJ and Judge Gray ticket is the best thing since sliced bread, and are happy that if they can't vote for RP on the ballot, they have the GJ option.
What is the issue or issues that people have with Johnson, other than that he is not RP?
I have heard some say he is "pro war" but that is false - his position is remarkably similar to that of RP.
I have heard some say is "pro fed" but that is false - just look at his site or listen to him.
Some criticize his abortion stance - okay that is a legitimate difference in their ideology, but since both believe in the constitution/limited government, their mutual solution would be to get the fed govt out of the issue entirely.
Some criticize his stance on gay marriage - again, a difference in ideology but again, as libertarians, don't we want the govt, especially the feds, out of this issue? Isn't it done at the state level now anyway? So why is this a federal presidential issue anyway, then?
What then is the big problem?
(please note in advance that if you are a retard and just want to call me a commie, count the number of posts, or say that I am secretly employed by the illuminati/space aliens/al gore/ your mom, I will just laugh at your pathetic stupid butt. In other words, serious, intelligent responses are desired only.)
