Trump and Sanders leading in New Hampshire. If ever there is a time for a real fiscal conservative, socially tolerant candidate to crash the two-party, it is NOW.

A real-life politician has admitted to having been wrong, even going so far as to dismiss a previous comment as “stupid.” http://townhall.com/columnists/pauljacob/2016/01/31/facing-error-n2112548 Rand Paul exited the 2016 GOP presidential race on Wednesday,...

Even Yahoo Finance is taking notice... "Would you vote for a Libertarian for president? Do you know exactly what a Libertarian is?" https://www.facebook.com/yahoofinance/videos/1091291624215087/

If you're seeking the presidency but no one notices, are you still seeking the presidency? Gary Johnson was governor of New Mexico for eight years, balanced the hell out of his budgets, and climbed Mount Everest with a broken leg. You'd think that would at ...

Sen. Rand Paul is the latest to find there is no room for the Liberty Movement in the Republican nominating process. I've been there. Thank you, Rand, for giving liberty a voice -- and keep fighting.

My take on the Iowa Caucus...
“The pundits have become fond of talking about ‘lanes’ to electoral success. Where is the lane for the millions of Americans who are fundamentally conservative when it comes to the size and cost of government, but just as fundamentally tolerant when it comes to individual and civil liberties?"

If the press doesn't present more than two parties, the millions of Americans looking for the fiscally conservative liberty lane will use the exit lane and stay home on election day, I'm afraid. Unless Ted Cruz portrays himself as a conservative Constitutionalist, in which case, he may win out.  Who are the swing voters (the alienated) if Trump and Hillary are nominated?

Please help fuel the Fundly drive to meet our goal this weekend!

Also, please take a moment to read this letter:
Friends,
Well...I survived the great blizzard in New York City last weekend. At home in Taos, two feet of snow is a powder day. In New York, it was a mess.
But that didn’t stop us from taking our campaign’s message to the national news media: That at a time when an historic number of voters are clearly looking for an alternative to the likely Democratic and Republican choices for President, there IS a credible alternative.
Those media appearances included interviews with both Neil Cavuto and Kennedy on the Fox Business Channel. I also joined the Fox News Red Eye panel, including a great interview with Tom Shillue.
I also had the opportunity to appear on Yahoo News and talk with several other major news outlets about the state of the 2016 presidential race -- and the unique opportunity that is shaping up for a credible, experienced third party candidate.
Seeing the response, it is clear that the opportunity is real. In addition to the audiences these national media outlets reach, hundreds of thousands of others are watching and reading these interviews via social media.
America IS ready for an alternative to the failed two-party duopoly, and we are poised to BE that alternative. All that is needed is you -- and your financial support. Just last night, I worked until the wee hours with a video crew to record some great liberty, small government messages. Our team will turn that work into some amazing videos in just the next few days.
But no one will see those videos without your help. To spread them across the Internet and put them in front of voters who are looking for a political home requires funding: The funding that only you and thousands of other supporters can provide. We don’t have the big special interest funders that are protecting the status quo. We only have you.
The opportunity in front of us is amazing. I’m excited by the response to our campaign so far. I hope I can count on you to fuel this Fundly drive so we can meet our goal this weekend!
Voters are ready to listen. In fact, they are anxious to listen. We just need to connect with them, and for that, your contribution is the key.
Thank you!
Gov. Gary Johnson

It's always a pleasure to talk with Kennedy on the Fox Business Channel -- which I had the opportunity to do a few days ago.

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.
