Gary Johnson at CU-Boulder: I would like to abolish the federal reserve

Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson on Monday assured an enthusiastic, standing-room-only crowd at the University of Colorado campus that voting for him isn't a wasted vote.

"Wasting your vote is voting for someone you don't believe in," he said.

Johnson highlighted his record as the former governor of New Mexico during the campaign stop, noting that he was not only elected in the heavily Democratic state, but re-elected. He said he likely vetoed more legislation than all the governors before him combined.

He said he's opposed to military intervention, would get American troops out of Afghanistan, doesn't support military action in Iran and wants to slash military spending. He supports the fair tax proposal and would like to abolish the federal reserve. He said he would have vetoed the Patriot Act.

He's not a fan of the healthcare reforms, instead supporting a pay-as-you go system with insurance for catastrophic injury or illness. He's pro gay marriage and marijuana legalization. He urged the crowd, which numbered around 400, to vote for Colorado ballot measure Amendment 64, which seeks to legalize marijuana and regulate it like alcohol.

"I go around the country telling people Coloradans get it," he said, adding the state has a large number of marijuana users.

Wow..

The Mighty Morphin' Gary Johnson Power Ranger.... He's Whatever You Want Him To Be Today!

He actually does agree with us 100% of the time! Just like his ad says! :D

***I'm not kidding... he literally has an ad that he says he agrees with "us" >>>100%<<< of the time.

Hell, why not go for 10,000% of time! To infinity.. and beyond! :p

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

That's why he is calling himself

The people's president.

Goldman Sachs candidates vs. people's president!

Gary Johnson is unique...

in his claim that nobody on Wall Street has committed any crimes.

hmm

Do you have a link from a neo-con article about it?
From the neo-con who was bashing Ron Paul before he started to bash Gary?

Why yes...

I do. :)

Here is a video by the crazy anti-Fed producer of The Money Masters and rabid neocon Bill Still. At 1:10 you will see Gary Johnson himself state [in a debate with Bill Still for the Libertarian Party nomination] that when asked about prosecutions of Wall Street criminals that "none of them [on Wall Street] have committed any crimes!".

Do you even know what a neocon is? You can cheat and use google to try and formulate a response. Good luck! :D

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

you are using the same tactic as the

left used against Ron Paul.

But how about the racist newsletters?
None written by Gary Johnson.

Look in the spring I got an email from RJ Harris asking me for help in his run against Gary Johnson for the Libertarian Party nomination.
I raised money for Harris in the past...I did some little research and said I would help him against the as I saw at the time GJ neo-con...how wrong I was.
I did dig deeper research and I saw Gary in a different light.
Two months later I see RJ Harris endorse GJ!

See?

Tactic?

You asked for a quote verifying my original assertion and I provided you a video of the man saying exactly what I claimed.

There was no "tactic". I just performed the little dance you asked me to perform.

GJ does not understand sound money (or worse he DOES understand it) and GJ has repeatedly given scenarios where he would enthusiastically send military to other countries.

The racist newsletters are a dead horse. I've viewed all available examples and found them lacking. See Ben Swann's coverage of it. You are grasping at straws while also treating me like I'm some idiot.

It is a very valid mature thing to point at that RP and GJ diametrically oppose each other on RP's two very most core philosophies of RP -- sound money and interventionism.

If you are ok with a our fake money system that RP has been speaking out against since he was a literally a child (teenager) and how that money makes it possible for all the wars then that is fine. You are an independent free person. But you are only disrespecting me by bringing up Ron Paul's supposed racism (do you even like Ron anymore?) and throwing in some vague things about how you did research and changed your mind without giving me specifics on why you changed your mind.

As far as your quote from his recent speech, "I would like to eliminate the federal reserve.". Then why does it still say "Restrict Federal Reserve policy to maintaining price stability" on his website? Maintaining price stability means printing more or less money to make a certain price rise or fall which causes prices of unrelated price to become dramatically more unstable as time passes. Gary Johnson contradicts himself as fast as the wind changes direction. He's dishonest and a chameleon. Not good character attributes.

I liked most of it, but I

I liked most of it, but I didn't like his answer to ending the fed. He just said he can't do anything about the fed without Congress passing it but would be talking about it all the time to get the citizens behind him. He said beforehand about legalizing competing currencies, so maybe he should have reiterated that. The guy was wanting to know what steps could be taken to end the fed, and Johnson didn't answer that very well when asked.

Thanks for commenting

He would need to educate the population about the issue first.
Otherwise he would seem to be like a dictator abolishing the Fed with just his one stroke of pen.

This video link you provided to the rally is not that great quality and does not show the event in full.
I am about to post the entire rally including terrific Q&A session.
Hope you can bump it.
