Gary Johnson: No To Carbon Taxes and Mandatory Vaccines, Yes To Black Lives Matter and Transformative Politics

NICK GILLESPIE: Earlier this week, you suggested you were in favor of a carbon tax or fee. Yesterday, at a rally in New Hampshire (video here), you said you were against it. What is your position on carbon taxes?


GARY JOHNSON: [A carbon tax] sounds good in theory, but it wouldn't work in practice. I never called it a tax. I called it a fee. As it was presented to me, this was the way to reduce carbon and actually reduce costs to reduce carbon. Under that premise—lower costs, better outcomes—you can always count on me to support that [sort of] notion. In theory it sounds good, but the reality is that it's really complex and it won't really accomplish that. So, no support for a carbon fee. I never raised one penny of tax as governor of New Mexico, not one cent in any area. Taxes to me are like a death plague.

GILLESPIE: Let's talk about vaccines. There are no federal laws mandating vaccines, and that's how it should be, as far as you're concerned.

JOHNSON: Yes.

GILLESPIE: There are people who say vaccines cause autism [and other problems] or that vaccines don't work. Are you in that camp?

JOHNSON: No, I chose to have my children vaccinated. I understand all the concerns that some people have, but for me personally, I made a decision to have my children vaccinated. I want people to make decisions and I believe in [opt-outs]. With the exception of a few states, everyone has an opt-out. But I also want to say that, as president of the United States, if I am confronted with a zombie apocalypse that will happen unless the total herd is totally immunized, I will support [mandatory vaccinations].

reason.com...

So unless there is a catastrophic outbreak then no mandatory vaccines.

But just last week he was all in favour of mandatory vaccines.

Maybe lay off the pot for a while, Gary. The short term memory loss is showing.

Wait, he says no to mandatory vaccines? Just the other day, an ATS thread declared Johnson would vaccinate you by gun point if you refused! Of course, that threads source was the fanatical Natural News. Shocking they were making things up, again.

According to Gary, he hasn't ingested the pot at all this race.

Where was Johnson when we were dicking around with HRC and McTump? Now we stink on both hands and a no win election...
Cheers

Did you not read the thread. He plainly said it was a state issue, not a federal issue. Commenting before reading tends to make one look....less than intelligent, almost as dumb as the reporter asking questions pertaining to state powers vs. federal powers.

We tend to fall for the "tough sounding person" or the feel good story.

No one here actually votes on policy,executive experience,track record, or qualification.

It's all emotional.



Gary Johnson says the TPP is filled with crony capitalism.

Johnson and his CFR brother Bill Weld are Libertarian in name only. They are both dyed in the wool socialists and one worlders. Weld has slipped up and shown his true face repeatedly yet Johnson still choose him so who do you think is pulling the strings?
The Johnson/Weld ticket is meant as a distraction.
All Johnson gave us in NM was Sunday beer and Indian casinos. We appreciated those gestures, at the time, but it isn't really a stellar social platform.

Johnson is not CFR and Weld is only VP. He's not a socialist as he's for free markets(something socialists are fundamentally against.

To distract who?

He takes a lot more votes from Clinton than Trump. He's actually helping you.
