Libertarian Gary Johnson’s 1% more than likely hurt the 1% pulling for Romney — How’s that for irony?by Dee Dee Garcia Blase on Nov. 07, 2012, under 2012 Presidential elections
Boy, we enjoyed watching how Libertarian Gary Johnson scared the GOP this past year! We knew he would.
Turns out Libertarian Candidate pulled 1% via 1,139,562 votes. Even though I voted for President Obama (because Mitt Romney killed his chances when he received an endorsement by Kris Kobach who authorized many of these anti-immigration laws across the Country), Gary Johnson still was able to bring that 3rd light on issues like immigration. When Gary Johnson used to be a Republican voter and a candidate, he had the most reasonable legal immigration plan out of all the Republican Presidential Candidates of 2012.
It’s absolute irony to me to see how Gary Johnson pulled 1% of the national vote in light of the 99% Occupy Wall Street era this past year.
I believe the Republican Party is on a path to extinction, particularly when the RNC adopted an anti-immigrant and anti-Latino platform approximately 1 week before the RNC convention of 2012.
We support 3rd party candidates. We support anything and everything that keeps the 2 major party system in check — as we are the true rebels of traditional thought process.
Congrats to Gary Johnson and the “L” Libertarian factor this year. Republicans have strayed far from the free market principles and we are glad to see your party put them in check to this regard and degree.
