It's not only that he doesn't believe in private property rights, but he openly and publicly professes that he'd force an Individual to relinquish his property to another Individual at the barrel of a government gun. True Liberty, as you know, means that an Individual or a group of Individuals should be free to make rules for themselves provided that those rules don't prohibit another Individual or another group of Individuals from equally doing the same. Gary Johson's admitted position is fundamentally contrary to Liberty itself as it is correctly defined. Consequently, Gary Johnson's admitted position is aggressive toward and contrary to the concept of Individual Liberty fully.
The fact that staff here, on a platform which promotes itself on its pride in adhrence to the cause of Liberty, permits for a presidential candidate whose admitted position is patently contrary and aggressive to the fundamental principle of Individual Liberty itself to be promoted in the name of Liberty in a "2016 Liberty Campaigns" sub-forum tells me that I could never again trust any of them to honestly speak to, lead, or make judgement in any instance in the true and fundamental cause of Liberty. Of course, I don't particularly want to believe that. But inaction is, I think, equally participatory in this particular brand of coercion. It's akin to silently and knowingly handing immoral hitmen the very dagger that would pierce true Individual Liberty's heart, and, then, silently sitting by watching its life blood drip from afar.
I don't really care if people support Gary Johnson. All I expect is that people don't promote him in the name of Liberty. His admitted position is a patent rejection of its most fundamental principle. And, again, to reject Individual Liberty's most fundmental principle is to reject Individual fully. It is not possible to obtain or possess Individual Liberty without accepting its fundamental principles and moral foundation as a whole. They must be accepted as a whole and in full in order to enjoy its benefits as an Indivisibe whole. They cannot be accepted and rejected piece-meal. To recklessly accept and reject them in a piece-meal manner is to sacrifice their benefits in whole.
