You’re a Democrat and you don’t want to vote for Clinton. You’re a Republican and you don’t want to vote for Trump. Vote for the Libertarian presidential candidate, Gary Johnson. Since both Clinton and Trump are worse, why would you vote for them instead? Johnson is picking up speed in the polls and has taken in a third party record $3 million of campaign contributions over the first two week of August.
You may not like all of Johnson’s positions; not to worry, Congress will be controlled by the Democrats and the Republicans so whatever Johnson would like to accomplish will be mitigated by the Capital Hill gauntlet.
What electing Gary Johnson president will do is send an emphatic message to Congress that they need to change; that they need to root out corruption from their own ranks; that they need to live within their means by spending less than what they take in as everyone else must do; and ultimately stay out of our lives.
Are you a Bernie supporter living in fear that Trump will be elected if you vote for someone other than Clinton? The fact is Hillary will be elected regardless of who you vote for. Trump is sliding faster and father every day. He has just rearranged the deck chairs on his own Titanic.
Bernie stabbed you in the back when he capitulated to Clinton’s nomination. Hillary claims she is going to reform the justice system and provide millions of living wage jobs. Obama did not reform the justice system; Obama did not provide millions of living wage jobs. For those of you who are clinging on, Hillary cannot do any more than what Obama attempted to do over the last eight years. Hillary is making false promises just so she can get elected.
The only thing you have to be concerned about is what kind of Supreme Court Judges Johnson will appoint. Based upon his political philosophy he will appoint judges that benefit those on the “Left” and the ”Right.” More than likely Trump will not be elected no matter who you vote for. Send a message to Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party by voting for Johnson; in doing so you will put them on a short leash. They will know that if they do not make significant changes over the next 4 years their time will be up.
If for some reason Trump does get elected as a result of votes going to Johnson, the Democrat controlled Congress will stand in his way preventing Trump from enacting most of his policies. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by voting for Gary Johnson for President.
Where Johnson Stands on the Issues:
As a two term governor Johnson brought New Mexico into fiscal sustainability. He seeks to do the same for the nation. Governor Johnson seeks to eliminate all income and payroll taxes with a single consumption tax which would remove special interest tax loopholes, (think Warren Buffett paying less in taxes than his secretary), and to get rid of the double-taxation on small businesses.
Basic family necessities would be excluded in any restructured consumption tax. No more IRS. No more pay roll taxes. No more costly and time burdensome tax preparation. Clinton and Trump; The Democrats and the Republicans cannot and will not implement this reform that benefits everyone.
Johnson would seek to establish term limits freeing Republicans and Democrats to vote in favor of their constituents’ interests rather than than their party’s interests. With a democratically controlled legislature, Johnson vetoed 739 bills during his eight years in office.
Johnson is not soft on crime, however he recognizes that the “War on Drugs” has completely failed society and that hate crimes are crimes against thoughts and therefore would work to eliminate both from the nation. He has promoted private prisons to save money, asserting that whatever problems have arisen are due in large part to the over criminalization of drugs and therefore the overcrowding of prisons. Reducing the prison population would eliminate the necessity of private prisons.
Johnson is a staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment pointing out that the founding father’s intent of the right to bear arms was not only for self-defense but also to ensure that the citizenry be well armed in order to deter any government from becoming too tyrannical.
Johnson would repeal Obamacare and overhaul Medicare and Medicaid both of which will result in the economic collapse of the country. He believes in government helping the poor and those over 65 years old, however everyone else should obtain health care from a highly competitive free market.
“Health care in this country is about as far removed from free market as it possibly can be,” Johnson said. “Government restricts the choices that we have. Government restricts the number of doctors that we have.”
“Wouldn’t we like to have a safety net for health care for those who are poor and over 65 as opposed to a monetary collapse of government where no health care would be delivered at all to those that are poor and those over 65?” he said.
Johnson is pro-choice. Johnson believes in making immigration to the U.S. easier so that not only most of the 11 million undocumented workers can stay but to motivate more people to immigrate to the U.S. Decriminalizing the immigration process while securing the border will make America safer and more prosperous overall than any proposal by Clinton or Trump.
