Johnson! (Now that Ron Paul's kaput)
The new Libertarian battle cry. (heard on the net) How could a true Libertarian support the Republican Party platform anyway?

1. 'true libertarian" = someone who does not want to pay taxes, no matter what.

The applause during the debates when an announcer asked Ron Paul if he would just let an insured person die says all anyone needs to know about Paulytes. And what in hell is so liberty loving about being anti-choice (meaning Paul, not Johnson. but they have the same followers)?

From Gary Johnson's well-scrubbed wiki:

Due to his stance on taxes, political pundit David Weigel described him as "the original Tea Party candidate".<83> Johnson supports balancing the federal budget immediately.<84> He supports "slashing government spending", including Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.<81> His plans include cutting Medicare and Medicaid by 43 percent and turning them into block grant programs, with control of spending in the hands of the states to create "fifty laboratories of innovation".<84> He advocates passing a law allowing for state bankruptcy and expressly ruling out a federal bailout of any states.<77>

People who are so in love with Ayn Rand should go live somewhere with no social responsibilities or societaql regulaton whatever. Saturn, perhaps.

hard to tell whether Johnson will take more votes from Romney or more votes from obama.
