What Gary Johnson Supporters Don't Understand...Submitted by Pauling Is My Hobby on Tue, 11/06/2012 - 14:25
"Credibility" for the LP doesn't come from 5% of the vote. You can't buy credibility with federal matching funds. Credibility comes from the PEOPLE who populate the LP. It comes from being a principled statesman, not a flip-flopping hack. It comes from logic and reason, not attempts to browbeat people into voting for your guy and censoring his negative traits. It comes from being a leader, not a coat-tail rider.
Ron Paul's credibility isn't derived from a party or an amount of votes. It comes from decades of holding steadfast to PRINCIPLE, of speaking truth to power, and of doing the right things, not saying things that sound good. The LP, GJ, and their base will never be credible until they understand this concept.
