    The conservative case for Gary Johnson and Bill Weld, not Donald Trump and Mike Pence

    1716725.jpg

    In this election, I cannot in good conscience cast a vote for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. Neither of them has the character,

    They are each an archetypical model of the type of candidate that a responsible and self-governing citizenry needs to reject.the experience or the principles that commend themselves to the American electorate.Like many Americans, I've voted for different political parties over the years. I voted for George W. Bush in 2000. I voted for Barack Obama in 2008.

    Fortunately, we have another choice: Gov. Gary Johnson of New Mexico and Gov. Bill Weld of Massachusetts, the presidential and vice presidential nominees of the Libertarian Party.

    I consider myself a conservative because I am skeptical of government power. I have a deep love of the Constitution and its checks and balances. And I believe that our national unity depends upon civility and a certain sort of refinement.

    Johnson and Weld both have those traits. As the Republican governors of their respective states, they wouldn't both have been overwhelmingly re-elected if they hadn't reached out and worked well with Democrats.

  • What Is Gary Johnson's Net Worth? He Apparently Has A Lot In The Bank [Romper]

    Liberatarian candidacies normally don't make a dent in the general election. But as with everything, that too is different in this year's election. With likability ratings for the Democratic and Republican nominees are at an all time low, Johnson may have an opening.

    It's no surprise Johnson has Trump worried. In a recent interview on Fox, Trump refused to say Johnson's name. "I don't want to mention the name. We want to give them as little publicity as possible, but I don't think they'll have that much of an impact," Trump said.

    From Romper, this piece highlights Gary Johnson's business successes.

  • 5 Things You Need To Know About Bill Weld, Gary Johnson's Running Mate [Romper]

    Weld is hopeful that the Johnson/Weld ticket is a solution for those who don't side with Clinton or Trump. And he does make a good point — both Johnson and Weld ran for Governor and won as Republicans in largely Democratic states. "There are a lot of people who could find our message appealing," Weld told U.S. World News and Report. "Realistically, we've got to raise tens of millions of dollars to show we can be competitive on the national level...if that happens, you'll see us creep up in the polls."

    From Romper, this piece outlines some of the very appealing aspects of Vice Presidential candidate Bill Weld.

  • Will Gary Johnson's Campaign Hurt Hillary Clinton? His Presence Could Shake Things Up

    The thing about Johnson is that he is not straight Libertarian, in fact, some voters booed him during the CNN Libertarian Town Hall for saying that he voted for the Civil Rights Act of 1964. So he might not just attract Bernie Sanders supporters, but he could also interest some Republicans who are getting a little wary of Donald Trump. Johnson is a little bit of everything that a disgruntled voter who's not thrilled by either candidate might be happy with.

    And who knows – if Johnson does it make it to the debates and he has things to say, he could most certainly sway voters from Team Hillary. And if that happens, Clinton should be prepared to face the music.

    From Romper, this piece shows that Gov. Gary Johnson is not a pure libertarian.

  • Upholding the Cause of Liberty: Gov. Gary Johnson and Gov. Bill Weld

    America is and always has been a land of liberty. Do you believe that? Do you believe that you can play a role in preserving our rights, our rule of law, and nation's character of decency?

    I do. I am stepping forward now to do everything I can to support the Libertarian Party ticket of Gov. Gary Johnson and Gov. Bill Weld.

    I support Johnson and Weld because they will defend the liberties in the Constitution, because they put principles and reason above their own whims or personal convenience, and because they campaign with civility, decency and respect. In this presidential election, they are the adults in the room.

    I've just flown back home to Utah from Orlando, Florida, where I attended the Libertarian Party National Convention over the weekend. Yesterday, the party nominated Johnson for president, and Weld for vice president. Johnson was the governor of New Mexico from 1995 to 2003. Weld was governor of Massachusetts from 1991 to 1997.
