Yesterday two term , Conservative Constitutional Libertarian Gary Johnson won the nomination for President . At the Libertarian Convention in Las Vegas. It must be a national threat , because I’ve not seen or heard any thing about it on the MSM. Maybe that’s because I don’t watch the MSM.
Its been 20 plus years since we Americans have had a Libertarian in the White House. And even though Reagan was naive enough to trust the word of the congress , regarding his flawed decision to grant amnesty to five million illegals. Non the less he was the last American President we’ve had that , had a reasonably steady pro American platform. The question is hows things been going , in that regard since. I submit, and steady downhill decline. Starting with 41, then Clinton, 43 and now this fraud what’s his name. He’s got so many , not sure which one to use.
As of yesterday, we now have a shot at bringing back our country to the Constitutional , Libertarian , Conservative roots of our founders. Mr. Franklin told a constituent that they had given us a Republic , if we could keep it. With the outcome of yesterdays nomination of Gov Gary Johnson maybe we can. Gary Johnson is the epitome of Small Business. He’s done it. He knows the issues that small business faces everyday from local,county,state, and the federal government.
Here’s a fact that no one talks about . Politicians spend a lot of time blathering about , how small business’s are the job producers. But the truth is governments do not want small business’s because its more entities that they have to chase and regulate. So they work to regulate them out of business. Been there done that!!!!! They would rather have us all working under one Corp seal , rather than hundreds or thousands of sole proprietor or chapter S corps.
Lets look as some facts. The RNC and MSM , which now includes Fox. Have destroyed any chance Ron Paul ever had at the White House. And who can forget the negative jabs Glenn Beck threw at Dr. Paul for years. Becks a Johnny come lately , where Dr. Paul is concerned. No credibility period in our camp. Romney is their darling. But here’s a fact. Romney will never beat what’s his name, and they that is the RNC and MSM know it. To prove my point, the MSM/Fox keep shoving Marko Rubio at the public to be VP. But we all know that Marko Rubio , like what’s his name is not eligible. There fore if Romney were to pick Rubio, no one , that is the millions that stood up against another failed amnesty bill , will ever vote for Rubio. Now that most of us know his position on amnesty and the dream act. And given Romney’s history, certainly not a Conservative, Certainly not a Libertarian, ($100.00 per gun tax in his state while being Governor), we’re on to him. He’s really obama lite.
Back to Ron Paul. Here’s the question , what will happen to the millions of Ron Paul supporters, like my self once the convention in Tampa is over. Where will they go . Until yesterday they had no place to go. Gary Johnson will be on the ballot in all 50 states , as far as we can tell. Governor you have my vote. In fact we will be contacting your campaign today , to offer up any help we might be able to render.
Brain dead Republicans will say, “Oh my , he’s for legalizing drugs”. They’re simply uninformed! The truth is they’ve never studied the policies that Johnson and other like minded Americans know must be put in place to accomplish legalization. Enough already. During my effort in 2010 , I had older people in the crowd , just shake their head , when I said I would legalize MJ as gov of Arizona. “Standing still will get you no where!!”
The other day I came out and suggested that we all get behind Romney, the least worst of the two. But today its a different deal. I followed Gary Johnsons two terms as Governor. He says what he means and he means what he says. The last President we had that did that was Ronald Reagan.
Congratulations Governor Johnson, now lets go to work. Ron Paul supporters stay tuned.

Governor Johnson, who has been referred to as the ‘most fiscally conservative Governor’ in the country, was the Republican Governor of New Mexico from 1994-2003.
A successful businessman before running for office in 1994, Gov. Johnson started a door-to-door handyman business to help pay his way through college. Twenty years later, he had grown the firm into one of the largest construction companies in New Mexico with over 1,000 employees. Not surprisingly, Governor Johnson brings a distinctly business-like mentality to governing, believing that decisions should be made based on cost-benefit analysis rather than strict ideology.
Johnson is best known for his veto record, which includes over 750 vetoes during his time in office, more than all other governors combined and his use of the veto pen has since earned him the nickname “Governor Veto.” He cut taxes 14 times while never raising them when he left office, New Mexico was one of only four states in the country with a balanced budget.
Term-limited, Johnson retired from public office in 2003. An avid skier, adventurer, and bicyclist, he has currently reached four of the highest peaks on all seven continents, including Mt. Everest.
In 2009, after becoming increasingly concerned with the country’s out-of-control national debt and precarious financial situation, the Governor formed the OUR America Initiative, a 501c(4) non-profit that promotes fiscal responsibility, civil liberties, and rational public policy. He traveled to more than 30 states and spoke to over 150 conservative and libertarian groups during his time as Honorary Chairman.
He has two grown children–a daughter Seah and a son Erik–and currently resides in a house he built himself in Taos, New Mexico.
