Dear Gary --

Please run in the DEMOCRAT primaries. Stay principled, don't pander. You'll probably lose, but then let the Libertarians nominate an even stronger Gary Johnson. Mark Greenstein - The Resistance

Wednesday evening, I faced what may be the easiest question I've encountered from the national news media. Neil Cavuto asked if the states should be pushing back against federal overreach. Well...YES.

Your stock is dropping, Gary.

If our country can't produce 100 good Senators, how will 50 states ever find enough good leaders?

So 'united we stand' is no longer convenient?

Federal overreach...does that mean 'law'?

There was this war back in the 1860's. Mean old Abe Lincoln threw a huge fit over States' thinking hey could make it better on their own. Then, a few years later, WWII proved him right.

It seems those who dislike the rules that constrain them are usually crooks. 

If Fox is your new brand, I'll thank you for letting us know who you've become. And I'll judge you accordingly.

The ugly reality that the Libertarian Party wont face, is that too many of the public dont want to be free.  Too many of the public are accomplices to the oppression all around us.

But the LP exists to play the democracy game, and they know they'll never get elected by telling the voters the truth - that the voters are part of the problem, and in fact have become their own worst enemy.

One of the great weaknesses of democracy is being a garbage-in, garbage-out system.

In promoting the philosophy of liberty to the American voting majority and expecting to win any election in our lifetimes, they might as well be trying to teach calculus to chimps and expecting to see correct answers.

Maybe the LP can win a presidential election in the next 100 years, that's a real possibility.  But it wont be within the next 20 years at least.  And it sure as hell wont be 2016.

I was a devout registered check-writing soap-box-preaching Libertarian from the late 90s through Ron Paul's 3rd run in 2008.  Dont think for one second I dont believe in the cause of liberty.

I just dont believe in the American voter anymore.

President Obama is fond of issuing Executive Orders. While he's at it, I would strongly suggest issuing one to put an end to Super Bowl parties and golf tournaments for federal staffers -- on the taxpayers' tab.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/feb/19/parties-golfing-energy-depts-21m-conference-budget/
Cruise-boat dinners, Super Bowl parties and golf tournaments were part of Department of Energy conferences that cost taxpayers more than $21 million over a 16-month span, according to a new report from the department’s inspector general.

It appears that our President wants to replace "mindless austerity" with more mindless spending. Is thoughtful austerity not an option?? - Gov. Gary Johnson

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2015/02/02/obama-budget-399-trillion-republicans/22695611/
Republicans say the budget includes too many tax hikes and too much spending.

Honorary Chairmain of Our America Initiative | 2012 Libertarian Presidential Candidate & two-term Governor of New Mexico.
Introduction
About Governor Gary Johnson: A two-term governor of New Mexico from 1995-2003, Gary Johnson has been a consistent advocate for limited, efficient government and personal liberty. As the Libertarian candidate for President in 2012, he received more votes than any Libertarian candidate in history. An outspoken pro-Constitution libertarian, Johnson opposes American involvement in foreign conflicts with no clear U.S. interest. He opposes the failed multi-billion dollar war on drugs and demands greater transparency at the Federal Reserve. Johnson advocates cutting federal spending dramatically to achieve a balanced budget and make government live within its means without raising taxes. He believes real job creation and economic opportunity can be best achieved through smaller government and less regulation. The National Review rated Johnson as "#1" in job creation as governor. An avid skier and bicyclist, he has reached the highest peaks on five of the seven continents, including Mount Everest and, recently, Aconcagua in Argentina.
Bragging rights
I have two great kids: my son, Erik, and daughter, Seah, who both help out with the campaign. I've completed over 30 triathlons, competed in the Hawaii Iron Man competition, and have summitted four of the world's highest peaks, including Mt. Everest. As Governor of New Mexico, I vetoed about as many bills as the other 49 Governors--combined. I was one of only 4 Governors in the country to leave my state with a balanced budget, and I created that surplus while cutting taxes 14 times. A recent National Review report showed that out of all the Governors running for the Republican presidential nomination this year, job growth was highest under my watch than anyone else's.
