Gary Johnson, Libertarian


August 1, 2012

Seattle Times

By Bruce Ramsey


New Mexico is a “blue” state, 47% Hispanic. Johnson won the governorship the first time with 49.8 percent of the vote in a race against an incumbent Democrat and a third-party Green. He won the second time with 54.5 percent. In 2008 he supported libertarian Republican Ron Paul for president, and in 2012 Johnson announced a run himself. He would have had Paul’s supporters this year, except that Paul ran again and kept them for himself.

While Johnson currently seems to have effectively no chance of winning, he could still be a factor.

Why I will be voting for Gary Johnson for President


August 2, 2012

The Washington Times

By Daniel de Gracia


Whether you are a Democrat or a Republican, you too should vote for Gary Johnson. I'm reminded of something the Filipino philosopher Jose Rizal said: "The glory of saving a country is not for him who has contributed to its ruin." Voting Libertarian isn't a wasted vote, but voting for the same way every election is a wasted opportunity for change.
