Looks like I have 3 vids to watch.

I think Johnson would be an excellent choice for president. He has a pretty level headed approach to solving some of the problems that plague our system of government/business. The problem is he won't get a chance, no R or D next to his name, too much $ at stake.

Pardon me,,,, Did I hear Mr. Johnson say " I believe climate change is man made " ? I just went back to listen again and correct that. He said,," I do believe that climate change is man made" Whooooboy. That ain't gonna sit well with many who would vote for him.

I don't believe climate change is man made. Nature does a better job at heating the earth than humans do.

But I don't have to agree with everything he says. He is not an ideal libertarian nominee but he is waaaaaaaaaaay better than Hillary or Trump.

He is talking about ending the drug war. That can save millions of lives easily.

No one is perfect.

Compared to Hilary and Trump the man is a saint.

Star and flag for getting the word out.

It's good to hear he's been making the rounds on some popular outlets.

I tend to agree that if his visibility increased, and more people knee him they'd vote for him.

Then again, some people would vote for anyone they heard or saw often enough...how else would you explain the current offerings?

What is his position on legalization of drugs?

Lets be honest... the only reason they are even giving Johnson the time of day in this election is because of Trump.

He owns a cannabis company, so I think he's pretty liberal when it comes to legalization of drugs. In fact, the entire Libertarian party is open for legalization of all drugs for the most part.

No, it is because of Trump and Clinton. Those two as the party choices must be the absolute worst in US history.


That last video said 47% of the population is willing to consider a 3rd party candidate. That is really good maybe there will be a surprise this election.

That is the trick. Liberals for some reason think Libertarians will draw votes from Trump.

Problem with this is Gary Johnson actually helps Trump by taking votes away from Hillary. He does not take away votes from Trump.Some disgruntled Trump voters will most likely vote for GJ later after they realize how bad Hillary is. Most of them will eventually vote for Trump. Most of the Bernie Sanders votes will vote for Hillary after they see how bad Trump is. But some will vote for Gary.

Gary Johnson appeals to moderates and independents really well.

His socially liberal policies are appeal more to the left but his fiscal policies are very conservative.

I watched his interview with Bill and I was almost shocked how normal he was. I've been so conditioned to the Train Wreck Personalities of Hillary and Trump I forgot that a POTUS candidate could actually be a normal person.

He has his little quirks and stuff but over all I must say I liked the guy. He was rational, intelligent, had a sense of humor and not once did he say something completely bat sh*t insane.

He's not even as Hard Core Libertarian as many others I've heard before. He seemed to understand that while he might have his views as a Libertarian that doesn't mean electing him means it must be exactly his way or nothing for everyone.

It was a great idea for him to be on that show, I'm sure it will get him more votes which would be great. Hell, I might vote for the guy myself. So far I like him way more than the other two. But then I guess it shouldn't be that hard to come across as more likable than an A-Hole Con Artist Businessman and a Career Criminal Nag.
