Gary Johnson Says Paul Supporters Will Not Vote for Romney
The presidential nominee for the Libertarian Party, Gary Johnson, the former Governor of New Mexico, said that his key to him winning as a long shot for the presidency is to be a participant in the presidential debates to be held this fall. He also said he must win over the backers of Ron Paul.
The candidate said he wanted to participate in the debates because that is the only effective way for him to get his messages out to the people of the U.S. He said anything and everything could happen in the debates, both good and bad. He thinks his voice and opinion is part of the fastest growing segment in the population of the U.S. in politics today.
Johnson took part in one debate during the primary race for Republicans. He also delivered one of the debate’s best lines when he said that the dogs in his neighbor’s yard have created more shovel ready jobs than our president has.
Johnson expects many of the supporters of Independent Ron Paul to vote libertarian. He said he expects those that support Paul, will not vote for Romney in November. He said he believes a large number of Americans agree with him that the country needs to be socially accepting and fiscally responsible. He also said that many Americans share his controversial stances on drugs, marriage equality and war.
He indicated he does not want to bomb the country of Iran. He wants to leave Afghanistan immediately and believes marriage equality should be constitutionally guaranteed. He wants the Patriot Act repealed and the drug wars ended.
