    Gary Johnson – “Libertarian” Candidate – is Out of His Element « Antiwar.com Blog

    As long as the Libertarian Party keeps running frauds like Bob Barr and Gary Johnson they are unworthy of the support of actual libertarians.

    Wow...And I thought I liked him.

    Side note...It's now little wonder to me why he was shut out of the primary debates, as we would've drawn away some of the fire from Dr. Paul.

    So did I when he first started running. He was a great Governor of New Mexico at any rate, but then he started talking about how we need Guantanamo Bay and giving off this nonsensical foreign policy.

    Instead of your normal one-half-of-one-percent of the popular vote, you guys might only get an eight of one percent this time around.


    LOL

    A lot of clueless people call themselves "Libertarians" without even having a firm understanding of what the term means. It's becoming cliche.

    However admirable libertarians’ uncompromising adherence to their political dogma may be, they need to acknowledge this will forever relegate them to the Nation’s political fringe, and eventually extinction.

    The "fringe" isn't looking too bad, frankly.

    Wow. I guess he is off the list. I hadn't followed him too much as i waited to see what happens with Paul, but I guess now it's obvious he is the Bob Barr of 2012.
