The only part I disagree with is the assumption that if Gary Johnson disagrees with Ron Paul on an issue, it's an automatic strike against him. I see those differences as simple differences of opinion between two honest people, not signs of corruption.
It is good to see the few ways that he's different from Dr. Paul. I already know from his record that he's a true fiscal conservative and that he has a sense of boundary, a kind of "is this my business?" sense that prevents him from exercising more power than he should.
I'm still torn between writing in Ron Paul and voting for Gary Johnson.
