Gary Johnson’s Support for Medical Marijuana Legalization Will Help, Not Hurt His Campaign (w/Video’s)

This is an opinion piece. But an important one for sure, I personally do not believe it will hurt or help.

The only thing to help the Libertarian Party grow is what many of us have said since back in the day, have patience, spread the word, and give it time, lots of time. The Libertarian Party has been the only 3rd Political Party to have been on every Presidential Ballot in every state in the Union over the past 40 years. Other so called third political parties have appeared over the years, but the Lib Party is the only one to have been there year after year.

As things get worst more people will wake up to the Liberty movement and the answers we present.  . . EDITOR

While campaigning in Seattle, Washington, last Thursday, Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson predicted that marijuana would be legalized in the U.S. by 2016 and reiterated his support for its legalization.

Dean Chambers, who covers the 2012 elections for the Examiner.comargues that Johnson and libertarians in general are making a mistake by raising the issue of marijuana legalization. “The voters have never shown a willingness to elect a candidate to the presidency who makes legalizing pot the number one issue,” writes Chambers. “Never at any time have the polls on issue priorities ever shown the American people viewing the legalization of marijuana as the highest national priority. The Libertarian Party nominee always goes to pot and marginalizes themselves for doing so.”

I completely disagree. Johnson is absolutely right to make this an important issue for several reasons. . . . Read Complete Report

The CIA Exposes the Truth About Ron Paul’s Foreign Policy!

from youtube

USE COMMON SENSE. Every other candidate supports NDAA and wants’ the power to be able to kill you without question. Ron Paul does not and has been exposing this type of freedom stealing corruption for over 2 centuries and the People are just now starting to listen and wake up.

It’s amazing & refreshing to see how true & honest Ron Paul speaks. . .

Most of the Republican candidates running for President in 2012 are “flip-flippers”, in other words they change their mind or position on the issues to fit the popular “politically correctness” of the moment. Not Ron Paul. He is the most consistent man on the podium. Dr. Paul’s Controller contenders, the main stream press, and the Republican/Democratic cartel just wish he would go away.  Here is an interview from Ron Paul’s 1988 bid for the Presidency when he ran under the Libertarian banner.  Unlike Romney & Gingrich, Dr. Paul’s POSITIONS on the issues have NEVER changed. . . .

Ron Paul Has Won: Young People Engage With Liberty, Limited Government, Sound Money, Anti-War Principles

It gives me much pleasure to post this report.  Back when Tricky Dick ran for his re-election I became so frustrated I was looking for something to throw when a friend came to me and invited me to a meeting with a few friends who were forming a new party. The meeting was held in a guys garage in Thousand Oaks Ca and there were about 10 people there. The party they were helping to form was the Libertarian Party.  I have been a card carrying member ever since.  During that first meeting we were warned that educating the people of the Libertarian principles and the new party’s goals would be a long draw out process.  They predicted that it would probably take the Libertarian Party 200 years to become a major party. (They based that on the fact that it took the Republican Party that long).  Because of Ron Paul I believe that the 200 year figure should be shortened considerably.  The following report shows why.  Ron Paul has already won the hearts and minds of half of the young voters…. those people will be running our country someday. Congratulations Dr. Paul… you are a true American hero. . . EDITOR

Ron Paul Has Won: Young People Engage With Liberty, Limited Government, Sound Money, Anti-War Principles

The next generation of leaders in America are Ron Paul fans

When Congressman Ron Paul embarked on a third Presidential campaign he did so with one over riding aim – to engage the next generation of Americans and provide them with the platform to restore the principles of the Constitution. The facts show that he has overwhelmingly succeeded.

Tuesday’s primary in New Hampshire saw the Congressman net almost half of all votes from people aged between 18 and 29 years old. Paul received 47 percent of young voter support, data collated by theCenter for Information & Research on Civic Learning & Engagement shows.

“Dr. Paul’s 47 percent support from 18- to 29-year-olds was the strongest level of support for any candidate by any age group.” said CIRCLE Director Peter Levine in a press release. . . . Read Complete Report

Why Ron Paul Matters

Among all the GOP presidential candidates, he’s the only one who stands for constitutionally limited government.

by Edward H. Caine, DECEMBER 31, 2011

The controversy surrounding decades-old newsletters to which GOP presidential aspirant Ron Paul lent his name is regrettable. First, it is regrettable because the sometimes bigoted, intolerant content of those newsletters is inconsistent with the views of the congressman as understood by those of us who know him. Yet, while Mr. Paul disavows supporting those ideas, he refuses to repudiate his close association with their likely source, Lew Rockwell, head of the Alabama-based Mises Institute.

Second, the New York Times editorialized recently that these unsavory writings “will leave a lasting stain on . . . the libertarian movement.” That is wishful thinking on the part of the Times, but it adds to the background noise surrounding Mr. Paul’s candidacy, obscuring the real libertarian policy initiatives that have made his candidacy the most remarkable development of the 2012 campaign.

Ron Paul‘s libertarian campaign has traction because so many Americans respond to his messages: . . . Continue report
