Your VP is Bill Weld, the anti-gun, CFR member & North American Union chair? Sorry Gary, I voted for you the last several elections, but you lost me in 2016.

If we are going to war for any reason other than defending ourselves, it should be for conquest. Lending aid to an ally is not the same as "our war". Lending aid needs to be described as any other form of monetary load. There should be an amount of aid described before it is given. There should be a projection of what success looks like & what amount of failure is acceptable (attrition numbers). There should be a reciprocal treaty (looking at you France) and conquest if it is broken.

Going to Iraq to depose a leader should have ended in the conquest of Iraq. We should not have to ask for help in attacking an enemy, just a get out of the way agreement.

+David Romero maybe we should be spending less and paying down our debt so we can survive as a nation even if interest rates return to normal?

Wasn't it Congress who created the TSA?
Massive airport security lines are creating pressure for Congress to do something.

Gary, what we really need is a constitutional convention to create an amendment that says if you are, or ever have been, a member of the Bar Associations you can not be a member of a legislative body.

I don't know if this country can handle the truth. The two party system serves only the interests of the power elite. Truth like Gary's is dangerous, but refreshing.

Introduction
Governor Johnson, who has been referred to as the ‘most fiscally conservative Governor’ in the country, was the Republican Governor of New Mexico from 1994-2003. A successful businessman before running for Governor of New Mexico in 1994, Gary Johnson started a door-to-door handyman business to help pay his way through college. Twenty years later, he had grown that business into one of the largest construction companies in New Mexico, with more than 1,000 employees. Not surprisingly, Governor Johnson brings a distinctly business-like mentality to governing, believing that public policy decisions should be based on costs and benefits rather than strict ideology.

Johnson is best known for his veto record, having vetoed more than 750 bills during his time in office -- more than all other governors combined. His use of the veto pen has since earned him the nickname “Governor Veto.” He cut taxes 14 times while never raising them. When he left office, New Mexico was one of only four states in the country with a balanced budget. Term-limited, Johnson retired from public office in 2003.

An avid skier, adventurer, and bicyclist, he has scaled the highest peak on each of the seven continents, including Mt. Everest. In the 2012 presidential election, Johnson placed third and garnered more votes than any other Libertarian candidate in history. Johnson was raised Lutheran. He has two grown children, a daughter Seah and a son Erik, and currently resides in a house he built himself in Taos, New Mexico
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.
