TLP Quik Hits: The Obama-Romney-Johnson Three Way Race

Not really a tough decision now, is it?

Examiner.com
The three most likely candidates to be on the ballot in all 50 states for the office of President are current President Obama, Republican Mitt Romney and Libertarian Gary Johnson. Many American voters have been asking where exactly do they stand on the major issues affecting Americans.

The mainstream media has its focus on side issues rather than the hardcore issues. We do our best to inform the public here.

Marrige Equality: Obama and Romney are against it, Gary Johnson is for it.

Legalization of Medicinal Marijuana: Obama and Romney are against it. Gary Johnson is for it.

Staunch Advocate for Gun Rights: Obama and Romney have voted for gun control, Johnson supports more adherence to the 2nd Amendment.

War: Obama and Romney either have or have voiced support of engaging in unconstitutional wars. Johnson is not for war except in cases of true defense of the U.S.A. and potentially where innocent civilians are being killed by their oppressive governments or “warlords”.

Best on Civil Liberties: the ACLU rated Gary Johnson best in their Liberty Watch Report with Obama a distant third and Romney coming in last – tied with Rick Santorum.

Committed to slashing the federal budget: Obama and Romney have not offered a plan to do so and have plans to do the opposite. Gary Johnson has committed to presenting a balanced budget slashing the federal budget by 43% in his first year as President.

Increasing taxes: Romney and Obama both voted or signed legislation to increase government spending and increase taxes while in office. Gary Johnson while Governor of New Mexico vetoed such legislation and decreased government spending and taxes in the state.

  1. I agree, it's not a tough decision: Ron Paul, all the way. If he's not on the ballot in November I will write his name in.

    I don't dislike Gary Johnson as such (especially compared to Obama or Romney), but he is not as good a libertarian as Ron Paul. I especially do not like Johnson's foreign policy, at least as he has articulated it so far, nor is he as good regarding the "War on Drugs" as Dr. Paul.

    Johnson would have been a good choice for a running mate with Dr. Paul, but he has a long way to go before he earns my vote for president.

      As much as I admire and support Ron Paul, if he is not the GOP nominee writing him in is a truly wasted vote in most states. For example, here in AZ write ins don't get counted.

      Gary Johnson, contrary to what the Thomas Mullens of the world want you to believe, is a libertarian. On many social issues, including the War on Drugs, Johnson is even more libertarian than Ron Paul.

      I too disagree with some of his foreign policy, but Johnson's track record as a 2 term Governor, along with his real world business experience shows that he is far more qualified to be POTUS than any candidate out there and needs the support of Dr Paul's followers come November.

      Remember, it is about the message and not the messenger and even Dr Paul, before he decided to run, said about Gary that he’d “most likely” throw his weight behind Johnson, stating “I can’t imagine endorsing anybody else”.

      We need to take our Republic back and in November the only option on the ballot we will have is Gary Johnson.
