I haven’t endorsed anyone for President yet, but the guy that catches my eye more than any other at the moment is Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson. While people will say a vote for Gary Johnson is a “wasted vote” or a “vote for Obama,” neither of these claims are accurate. First of all, a “wasted vote” is to play the system’s rigged game and vote for the “lesser of two evils” between two awful candidates that fundamentally disagree with me on every single issue of importance. To the second point, there is a lot of evidence that suggests Johnson pulls from both parties, and in fact mostly from Independent voters (who probably wouldn’t vote anyway), with him pulling more away from Obama in my home state of Colorado where he is polling at 7% as of late!
I don’t like labels and I prefer not to attach myself to any. While I agree more with the Libertarian platform than the other options, no political philosophy is perfect. The point is that the Democrats and Republicans are two big party elite shams that pit the populace purposely against one another on emotional social issues so as to never debate what really matters. Gary Johnson is virulently opposed to Gestapo type legislation like the NDAA, which Obama is fighting aggressively in court to keep, he is against the Federal Reserve system, in favor or real capitalism where there are no massive bank bailouts or institutionalized socialism for the rich and austerity for the middle class. He is the only commonsense guy running for President that sees the nation’s future in a similar vein to so many of my generation and younger if we would just wake up.
Gary Johnson has recently polled around 5% nationally. While this is impressive for a guy with zero media coverage, he needs 15% to get in the debates. If nothing else, it would be amazing to see him up there with the other two puppets. If we spread his message perhaps he can get there.
Below is a interview my friend Dan Ameduri recorded with Mr. Johnson at the Freedom Fest in Vegas. His candor is refreshing and without a doubt you will know where this man stands on the issues. Please take the time. Our nation’s future is at stake.
