Gary Johnson Touts His Entrepreneurial Experience, Criticizes Obama and Romney in Ohio

BOWLING GREEN—On the second stop of his statewide tour of Ohio, Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson relayed tales of his time in the private sector while offering the 150 people packed into the Cla-Zel Theatre some career advice.

“I have been an entrepenruer my entire life. Since I was 17 years old I have paid for everything I have in my life. When I was a junior in college I started a one man handyman business in Albuquerque and grew that business to employ over a thousand people,” he said, referring to the company Big J Enterprises.

Johnson later sold Big J in 1999 while he was governor for approximately $10 million.

“I am gonna offer you all some advice, it’s worth exactly what you’re paying for it. Whatever it is that you’re good at, apply in entrepreneurially. Go into business for yourself, do what you want to do for yourself and you’ll find the rewards to be a hundred-fold. You’ll never regret making that decision,” said Johnson to a crowd comprised of mostly Bowling Green college students and local residents.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

Why don't you mention

When he came to office he inherited $1 Billion deficit and when he left 8 years later he left NM with $1 Billion surplus.
Not to forget he cut taxes in NM... 14 times.

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

Provide a link to where that information is

that ISN'T just a soundbite on his or any other website.

I wouldn't say spending of almost double is a surplus.

BY the way.. Don't think I'm not aware that you tried to change the subject instead of answering the statement.
