Gary Johnson visits ASU and addresses liberty issues to Ron Paul / Libertarian / Libertarian-Republicans and students.Friday, September 28th, 2012
Gary Johnson recently visited ASU and addressed several Liberty-related issues including drugs, immigration, war and liberty issues to Ron Paul/Libertarian/Libertarian-Republican and independent voters.
For those of you who don’t know who Gary Johnson is, he is the Libertarian candidate running for President. You see, he used to be a Republican when he was the Governor of New Mexico. The Republican Party snubbed Gary and now they “will get what they wished for and will pay tenfold…..” That said, I see Gary Johnson being a power house in very much the same way Ross Perot was in 1992. Remember Ross Perot from 20 years ago and who was concerned about free trade, federal budget deficits, and the U.S. national debt? I see the same parallel and we can learn from history. Gary Johnson will influence the direction as he does his best to frame political discourse. Like Ross Perot….Gary will indeed have an important effect on the 2012 election, and I am told he will be on the ballot in 47 states so far in our Union, and his campaign is working tirelessly to get him on the other 3.
The new House Congressional Poll ratings will hurt the Republican Party since in essence they became the “Party of Hell No” instead of being the party of solutions. More than ever we need to go back to working on solutions….shedding the partisanship. We need to go back to the Ronald Reagan and Tip O’Neill days. We are hungry for that. We can no longer support the Tea Party and those who chant Hell No to everything. Americans want politicians to do what they are paid to do and work with each other across the political aisle for what is in the best interest of the United States. More Tea Party supporters have proven to be divisive with their “Hell No” to everything approach and it is destroying the unity message we yearn for because a house divided will not stand.
Gary no longer has to worry about pissing off the Republican Party. He is now truly a free spirit and a free agent and he can speak what he is convicted to speak on. Nobody can shut up Gary now, and that makes him politically dangerous. I like that, and I applaud his bold move in leaving the GOP for good and switching to the Libertarian Party. Here is a short clip taken by Nick Thomas on that day where Gary Johnson speaks to the media followed by Libertarian candidate Michael Kielsky (running against Maricopa County Counselor Bill Montgomery). We also heard Barry Goldwater Jr. speak before Gary Johnson gave his keynote speech.
I was very surprised to hear Gary Johnson say that President Obama received more “Liberty Torches” than Mitt Romney. Now obviously, Gary Johnson received the most Liberty torches out of all the candidates, nonetheless….I was shocked. According to Gary Johsnon, the ACLU came out with a report card last December 2011 where 24 Liberty torches was the perfect score.
Gary stated in this youtube video (fast forward to 5:45 minute mark) the following:
Mitt Romney received 0/24 Liberty torches. (Zero)
Newt Gingrich had 4/24 Liberty torches
President Obama received 16/24 Liberty torches
Ron Paul received 18/24 Liberty torches
Gary Johnson had 21/24 Liberty torches
In looking at the above, you can see how President Obama is viewed as a moderate … and he is going to need to be viewed that way in order to garner independent voters like me or 80% of the moderate American population. For those of you who could not attend the Gary Johnson event at Arizona State University, you can see his speech below:
We received so much support and love from the educated and open-minded voters at the Gary Johnson rally. We love educated and open-minded people.
You see, when (Libertarian candidate) Andrea Glasscock Garcia ran against the extremist Arizona Senator Russell Pearce in 2010, I endorsed her when I used to be the President of Somos Republicans. Like Gary Johnson, I left the Republican Party for good and I decided to be an independent registered voter here in Arizona. I’m not the only one — (Independent) Mike Stauffer for Maricopa County Sheriff also left the Republican Party and is running against the corrupt Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
As an independent conservative, Mike Stauffer is Joe Arpaio’s most formidable opponent and it is time for Arpaio to go because the demographics are like this in Maricopa County:
36% registered R’s
35% registered I’s
29% registered D’s
1% registered L’s
So you can see why we are backing Mike Stauffer for Sheriff, because he attracts the fiscal conservatives, Libertarians, moderate Republicans and some Democratic voters, too. Sheriff Joe Arpaio has wasted millions and millions of tax payer dollars. He is no fiscal conservative, and has abused his authority. We want to thank Andrea Garcia for helping us secure a booth at this Gary Johnson event. It was successful, fruitful and we were well received by the exact target market we need in order to beat Arpaio.
