Gov. Gary Johnson's Campaign Releases New Video: "We the People ARE Libertarian"

August 20, 2012, Austin, Tex. In a new video, "We the People ARE Libertarian," Gov. Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party nominee for President, points out that the average American is much more libertarian-minded than he or she realizes.

"If you'd rather rebuild roads, schools, bridges and hospitals here at home instead of building them for others halfway around the world, you're libertarian," Johnson says in the video. "If you're the type of person who talks about ending warfare and welfare in the same sentence, you're libertarian. If you think your body, your love life and your private business are no business of the federal government, you're libertarian." 

Gov. Johnson asks Americans to vote Libertarian for one election. Watch his new video here.


About presidential candidate Gary Johnson: Gary Johnson, two-term governor of New Mexico from 1995-2003, has been a consistent advocate for limited, efficient government and personal liberty. Johnson switched from the Republican Party to the Libertarian Party on Dec. 28, 2011. As the Libertarian Party nominee, Johnson will appear on all 50 states' ballots. An outspoken pro-Constitution Libertarian, Johnson would end the war in Afghanistan now. He opposes the failed multi-billion dollar war on drugs and demands greater transparency at the Federal Reserve. As president, Johnson would cut federal spending by 43 percent, slash debt and make government live within its means while reducing taxes and regulation to foster real job creation and economic opportunity like he did in eight years as governor. The National Review said he was "#1" in job creation as governor. An avid skier and bicyclist, he has reached the highest peaks on four of the seven continents, including Mount Everest.
