You and others are missing the point on Gary Johnson...

I have read a lot of the posts on hereabout Gary Johnson and even authored one myself and we are NOT advocating that anyone stop supporting Ron Paul in any way shape or form. Johnson is a third party candidate and all we want is for the liberty movement to show support for another liberty candidate so he can be a part of the presidential debates. Is it so wrong to want to have another voice for liberty out there? If Ron Paul does not get the nomination, would it be such a terrible thing to have Johnson polling high enough to be a part of the debates? If Paul was nominated, I would imagine that Johnson would willingly step aside from the debates even if he had the polling numbers to give a clear message of unity.

Let me make this clear: we should all be fighting for liberty. In that fight, Ron Paul is our first and best choice. But, that does not mean that we should ignore any other potential avenues for advancing liberty just because it isn't being represented by our ideal candidate.
