gay marriage and early term abortions are both fence issues from a liberty perspective... we have people on both sides, not a game changer for a "liberty candidate"; the liberty movement is first and FOREMOST about economic issues; "the property basis of rights"; gay marriage and early term abortion stances just muddle our platform and divide us really.
you're personal anti "illegals" notion doesn't match at all with ron's notion of a green card with an asterisk for any non criminal non citizen in the interior... so frankly you'll never be happy till you see a wall and jackboots.... you're not supporting free market liberty with your notion of "closed borders" so johnson is not anti liberty on this... he's just anti LE and fellow isolationist trumpettes
he's not "completely" willing to go to war for humanitarian reasons. The only humanitarian plight he's backed in the past 2 decades has been Kony, which was very small scale intervention; a few hundred boots in non combative supporting roles. He has not shown support for any other specific humanitarian crises.
he is generally unwillling to close bases, but he does want our boys back IN the bases rather than roaming the interiors of foreign countries. Its a step in the right direction. I do think we should march out just as we marched in and abandon the bases we created.
no he won't take drone strikes off the table... but yes unlike conventional wisdom he recognizes the potential for blowback which would obviously mitigate his usage
