    Rand Paul Endorses Gary Johnson for Senate.

    Interesting. Bucking his own party!

    https://www.usnews.com/news/best-sta...nate-candidate

    SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky is endorsing the Gary Johnson's Libertarian campaign for U.S. Senate in the state of New Mexico.

    In a news release Tuesday, Paul shunned the Republican nominee and announced his support for Johnson, a former Republican governor of New Mexico who ran for president as a Libertarian in 2012 and 2016.

    Even better would be to tell them to get the Republican to drop out of the race!

    Good, the Republican is worse and doesn't have a chance, Rand should get Trump to endorse Johnson.

    Is the Republican allowed to drop out? In NH, he wouldn't be allowed to drop out. The last day to file is the last day to drop out here.

    Gary doesn't talk enough about the stupidity of the wars. He got embarrassed over Syria but he should do it anyway.

    That seems like a crazy rule. If somebody decides they don't want the job, they should be allowed to drop out.

    I wonder if Ron will also endorse him. I could see him doing it or not doing it. But I'd like to see him do it just to see the reactions of some here whose level of hatred for GJ is irrational.

    There is a lot of that running around in all directions.

    I had issues with GJ running for president with Weld.

    But for Senate from NM, I think he would be fine choice and a strong ally of Rand.

    Hope he wins...in fact, I'd offer an alternative to settle my wager with @dannno

    $50 to GJ's campaign

    He could announce it anyway and tell all his supporters to vote for Johnson, they might not take him off the ballot but it would do some good.

    Origanalist, are you now trying to get something baked
    that will "nod off" the hippie activists G.J has brought
    into the LIBERTARIAN fold due to his innate charisma?

    This is silly... if the Republican, or Gary, had a chance, then Rand wouldn't have done this.

    I do not hate GJ. I think he is not what he claims to be, and I think there is a lot of conflict-of-interest in his connection to the pot lobby. That was never fully explained when he ran for president, and I remain very suspicious.

    I have never used pot and never plan to. The call for legalization is the wrong way to go. The government should remain neutral and silent on the issue, and immediately repeal all law where it is mentioned. People should be able to grow and use whatever they want in their own yard without any interference from anyone. It's nobody's business.

    Current law covers the industrialization of pot. Sale, regulation, taxation, and the forfeiture of anonymity. It does not cover a few plants in a yard grown for personal use. There is a huge difference here. I wish you all could see it.

    There is a big difference between Ron Paul and Rand Paul and an even bigger difference between Rand Paul and Gary Johnson
    Johnson is an odd blend of ideas, not fully libertarian , not fully sensible. He is more harm than good
