Thread: This is what your donations to Gary Johnson campaign are paying for.

    Default This is what your donations to Gary Johnson campaign are paying for.

    Hyper links and everything to the new republic article. This is paid for by the GJ campaign.
    This is going to help the RP campaign greeeeat

    "But unlike Paul, he is pro-choice (except for late-term abortions), pro-immigration, pro-trade and untainted by bizarre conspiracy theories that NAFTA is a prelude to the dissolution of North American borders. Nor does he have Paul’s racist newsletter baggage. His signature issue is not abolishing the Fed or returning to the gold standard. Rather, it is avoiding the impending financial collapse by cutting government spending on everything by 43 percent — Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and defense — a plan bolder than any that either party has proffered."

    not surprised at all.. Gary Johnson is no man of principle..


    liberty is not a cost-benefit analysis.



    Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. - Thomas Jefferson
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    Is it alright that I feel vindicated for backing out of the Johnson-loving pretty early? I remember I originally wanted to draft him, but then I looked into him a little bit and decided that I was being an idiot.

    I'm getting pretty sick of having to explain to people that Ron Paul doesn't advocate the gold standard..

    Ya, cost benefit analysis are great arguments, but not over-riding.

    The real question is who owns you.

    That racist was sure nice to Gary on Stossel, saying how he was amazed when Gary as governor of New Mexico vetoed over 700 bills, and showing real enthusiasm. I'm certain his web page won't link to those articles where Gary says one difference between him and Ron is that Gary supports 'free' trade agreements like NAFTA....

    Focus on other candidates, ignore GJ who seems like a dumbo and closet neocon based on his gitmo clip also. Any of his remaining supporters who are motivated by principles would pick the right team in the end.

    Bye bye GJ.

    Someone quick plaster it all over dailypaul. Those guys over there still seem to be swooning all over GJ. Anyone with an IQ above 80 and an internet connection knew from the start that a GJ candidacy would be bad for Ron Paul. Split campaign contributions, libertarian grassroot campaigners etc

    Even though it's posted on his site, it's possible GJ did not write this nor has he read it. Don't jump to conclusions.

    And it has massively backfired. There are two real options for a negative campaign like this: Complete success or total failure. Johnson is in the latter.

    We can be pretty certain he didn't write it. However, Johnson's campaign is almost certainly too small for him to not have control over it. Johnson probably knew well that this was going up, and he had been running the race against Ron Paul since he announced practically.

    Not sure if he read it, but he certainly did not write it, it says so at the top. Written for the NEWS Corps' new daily tablet magazine by Shikha Dalmia (a Reason mag writer).

    I don't think it is written by him, but he is going to pay someone to attack RP. It is what campaigns do. So dual donations just established more hyperlinks to very negative articles of RP. That is help RP how????

    Liking GJ less and less with each passing moment. I hope no RP supporter is fooled by him. I hope no small government/libertarians/etc. are fooled by him.
