    I haven't jumped ship from supporting Ron Paul, but the two are almost the exact same except Gary isn't religious and is WAY younger. Both of which are a plus.
    Most people have never heard of Gary Johnson, so here is a little background:

    I've been watching the debate, I think he's gotten to speak twice in 80 minutes

    Had my vote ever since I heard he was running. mainly due to his veto history, governorship cred and drug policies stance.

    Oh, good. Exactly what I expected. Let me guess, it was the Perry/ Romney show again? Did they plug Perry's book another 20 times. Did they ask nothing but questions about Perry's record? Fuck that shit makes me mad. Quit fucking trying to choose the next president for us, you fucking cock suckers. How about an old fashioned debate where everyone is asked the exact same question and they all get a chance to respond? Then they can bicker amongst themselves for the last 1/3 of the debate.

    Funny thing is he's the "change" everyones wanted but nobody has heard of him because he's had zero media coverage.

    He might be too "regular guyish" for the media.

    Johnson definitely had the funniest line of the night:

    "My next door neighbor's dog has created more 'shovel-ready' jobs than the current president."

    He also picked Ron Paul when asked who he would pick as his VP out of the field at the debate.

    Whoever ends up getting the nomination....don't ever ever ever make Gary Johnson your choice for VP. That is all.

    Haha. Did you watch his commercial I posted above. He really tips his hat to Ron Paul.

    I didn't see it until just now. Nice.

    He did very well in the debate, for how much time he had. Gingrich scares me though. I really think he's going for VP at this point and several of the candidates mentioned him tonight. He'd actually be a much smarter choice for VP than for pres, but I don't fucking trust him. Both him and Santorum just have this evilness about them that I just can't put my finger on.

    Santorum has stated that he doesn't believe that the right to privacy extends to the bedroom (at least when it comes to sodomy) and Gingrich went after Bill Clinton for his affairs even though he was cheating on his own wife all along. Those are both fairly evil.

    Gingrich went after Clinton for perjury in a Federal Court. Enough of this "he was impeached for getting a blowjob" shit. The President of the United States can't be committing felonies.

    Santorum certainly paid for that. He's now linked to a pretty funny homo sex term.

    But Gingrich really wasn't a part of that whole "morality" thing against Clinton if I recall. It was other conservatives, mostly not even elected officials really. Gingrich and Clinton butted heads on policy, nothing really wrong with that and actually came together on a lot of things.

    You like a guy who doesn't have the courage of his convictions to follow through with what he feels is right? He's too easily swayed by the mob mentality in an effort to "fit in"? Doesn't sound like Presidential material to me. Maybe in 2016 Gary.

    Nice try. The guy was on a nationally televised debate with rules. They didn't ask him how he felt about the issue. They asked Santorum and moved on. He was already on thin ice, since the Florida Republican party didn't even want him at the debate, but Fox News changed the rules anyway and let him in. At least he has come out and followed up on the position (on an national news-talk show), which is more than anyone can say for any of the other people on the stage that night. Well, that's not entirely true. Rick Santorum came out and condemned the "booing", even though he was the guy advocating throwing gays out of the military, while it was happening.

    Gary Johnson, the Carlos Mencia of the Republican Party.

    He stole the dog line from the Rush Limbaugh Show last week.

    He explained that too. He claims that his campaign manager solicited for ideas for good one-liners for the debate. Someone submitted that line, and apparently no one checked to see if it was stolen.

    A Presidential candidate who has actually been a medical marijuana patient. That's an original point of view to argue from.
