If Ron Paul isn't the Republican Nominee, Vote for Gary Johnson and Kick GOP Ass.

If Ron Paul isn't the Republican nominee and I don't believe that he will be, then it's decision time for liberty activists. As a proud Ron Paul supporter and a libertarian since the early 1970's, I'm thrilled that Ron Paul's 2012 campaign was such a resounding success! We've finally got a real revolution going that has extraordinary momentum, commitment and energy.

While we lacked the numerical strength to outvote the establishment statist neocon socialists who lust for endless wars, big government and big spending, we are amassing substantial power. We energized an entire nation and we succeeded in educating tens of millions on critically important issues like militarism gone mad and banksters gone wild. The Revolution for Liberty really kicked off in 2006 when liberty activists could no longer even hold their noses and vote Republican. The Republicans lost the House of Representatives. Obama and the Democrats sailed to an easy 2008 victory.

The Republican Party doesn't even seem to be the least bit concerned because it views the liberty activists as an alien invasion by liberals, kooks and irrelevant rabble-rousers. Of course, a sane and astute political observer would indeed be concerned about the loss of such a significant voting block - the young, the politically aware and the fiscally conservative.

While the RNC and GOP machines may be ignoring us, we are indeed hurting the Republican Party and it deserves the pain of ballot box failure for its utter treachery, blatant betrayal and contempt for the Constitution.

Ron Paul started something that is unstoppable and the best way to honor America's greatest revolutionary in modern American history (here) is to continue to wage the Revolution for Liberty by voting for the strongest liberty candidate on the ballot.

Gary Johnson is such a candidate and definitely a man worthy of filling Ron Paul's shoes.

Gary Johnson has an impressive record as governor of New Mexico. Gary Johnson governed as a solid fiscal conservative and defender of the 10th amendment and state rights. Foreign policy is a HUGE liberty activist issue. Gary Johnson believes that we shouldn't be military intervening anywhere without a congressional declaration of war and he also believes that we are spending way too much money on defense. On foreign policy, Gary Johnson states on his website:
Maintaining a strong national defense is the most basic of the federal government’s responsibilities. However, building schools, roads, and hospitals in other countries are not among those basic obligations. Yet that is exactly what we have been doing for much of the past 10 years .
Given trillion-dollar deficits, America simply cannot afford to be engaged in foreign policy programs that are not clearly protecting U.S. interests. There is nation-building and rebuilding to be done right here at home.
Our military should remain the most potent force for good on Earth. To do this, we should resort to military action as the last option and only as provided in the Constitution.
Gary Johnson also supports the legalization of marijuana, school choice, balancing the federal budget and he's a strong advocate for civil liberties.
THE FREEDOMS ON WHICH AMERICA WAS FOUNDED are now under attack from the very people charged with protecting and upholding them.

The PATRIOT Act should be repealed, which would restore proper judicial oversight to federal investigations and again require federal investigators to prove probable cause prior to executing a search.

Habeas corpus should be respected entirely, requiring the government to either charge incarcerated individuals with a crime or release them.

The TSA should take a risk-based approach to airport security. Only high-risk individuals should be subjected to invasive pat-downs and full-body scans.

The TSA should not have a monopoly on airport security. Airports and airlines should be encouraged to seek the most effective methods for screening travelers, including private sector screeners. Screeners outside of government can be held fully accountable for their successes and failures.
Gary Johnson is a thoroughly decent liberty candidate and a whole lot better than either Obama or Romney who together are like two peas in the R and D Uniparty pod.

If liberty activists want to advance the cause of liberty, then Gary Johnson is the best possible choice.

Yes, he's not Ron Paul, but who is?

Gary Johnson is definitely on the side of liberty and has been a champion of small constitutional government his entire life. He's got a record to prove it.

Obamney and Obushma are just not sane choices for those seeking preace, liberty and prosperity. Both the RNC and DNC machines are wholly owned subsidiaries of the same folks - the banksters, the military industrial complex, the prison industrial complex and fascist rent seeking crony capitalists.

Many unhappy Ron Paul supporters are saying that they will just write-in Ron Paul when they vote. However, write-in ballots are banned in many state and are rarely counted.

The best way for liberty activists to inflict pain on the GOP is to vigorously support and vote for a viable and decent third party candidate. The Libertarian Party has the advantage of being on the ballot in all 50 states (most third parties haven't even figured out how to get on the ballot).

At this juncture, we may not have the power to win a primary or an election but we definitely have the voting clout to keep the Republicans from winning as we continue to grow our glorious Revolution for Liberty. Liberty is definitely a smoking hot issues these days!

Oddly, there are times when I would definitely hold my nose and recommend voting Republican. The US Senate ratifies treaties and the Democrats are most eager to ratify sovereignty slashing treaties.

When I Would Hold My Nose and Vote Republican

It's not that Republicans are sovereignty fanatics but they are just less likely than the Democrats to ratify a nasty UN treaty that cedes US sovereignty to supranational organizations.

Finally, a vote for Gary Johnson is definitely a vote for liberty as well as a well deserved slap in the face to the Republican Party.

If you want this to mean something:

Then vote for Gary Johnson.


  1. Hi Judy,
    I agree with you 99%. The one percent of disagreement being not voting republican. I agree that the Democrats and rebublicans are a "uniparty." However, we CANNOT afford another 4 years of Obama's socialist policies. I would LOVE to see a Libertarian candidate have some real chance at the White House, but until the party gets more clout with voters I'm going to have to hold my nose and vote Republican. This election is too important for me to make a statement. Maybe in 2016, but not now.

  2. People are always so concerned with the current election. It is always the most important election. That's how we got in this mess. A vote and support of johnson could create a new major party. This will be my forth presidential election and I am proud to say I have never voted d or r for president and don't plan to this time

  3. In the absence of Dr. Paul on the ballot, voting for Gary Johnson is a viable option for those searching beyond the Obamnys.

  4. Gary Johnson is a gazillion times better than Obamney and Obushma. Ron Paul was definitely my first choice but I can proudly vote for GJ.
