Opinion: "If Barry Goldwater was alive today, he would vote for Gary Johnson"Submitted by legalizeliberty on Wed, 10/24/2012 - 18:50

Barry Goldwater, a Republican, was notorious for his visionary thinking that resembles Libertarian views today. If he were alive today, I believe he would vote for neither Mr. RomneyCare nor Mr. Obama Care — nay, he would vote for Gary Johnson.
Gary Johnson is running under the Libertarian Presidential ticket for 2012, and was a former long life Republican and the former Republican Governor of New Mexico.
Gary Johnson wants to end wars, and military members and their dependents are tired of wars. Indeed, military veterans have given a significant amount of their money to Ron Paul because Ron Paul has been a stalwart champion for ending the wars that began under George W. Bush. It is a known fact that Mitt Romney wants to increase our war and Defense budget by $2.1 trillion even though our military has not asked for that money. And in that regard, let it be known that Obama isn’t asking for a $2.1 trillion increase. Where is Romney going to get the money? From the tax payers of course.
