Gary Johnson is For Reduction of American Forces From Overseas

Your statement about Johnson being a war drum beater is not supported by his statements. From his website:
"Maintaining a strong national defense is the most basic of the federal government’s responsibilities. However, building schools, roads, and hospitals in other countries are not among those basic obligations. Yet that is exactly what we have been doing for much of the past 10 years.
Given trillion-dollar deficits, America simply cannot afford to be engaged in foreign policy programs that are not clearly protecting U.S. interests. There is nation-building and rebuilding to be done right here at home.
Our military should remain the most potent force for good on Earth. To do this, we should resort to military action as the last option and only as provided in the Constitution."
That is hardly beating the drum for war. And in his comparison of the candidates page:
"I have firmly pledged to withdraw our troops from Afghanistan immediately and have opposed US military operations there since the uprooting of Al Queda in the months after 9/11."
"I will submit a budget to Congress in 2013 that cuts military spending by 43% and have pledged to veto expenditures which exceed the levels necessary to eliminate the deficit."
I think Ron Paul and Gary Johnson are messengers for Liberty. I support them both. As Ron Paul says it is the message that is most important not the messenger. When asked about Gary Johnson's decision to seek the Libertarian Party's nomination, Ron replied that some good would come from it.
