    Can you imagine Obama or Romney responding to these same questions given Johnson ... all we would get is their continued rhetoric of the blame game. The smoke and mirrors of the status quo ...

    My only issue to uniting this nation ... by going in the right direction and not more of the same.

    The rest, is relative but not worth anything until the people realize that it is our constitution and our dire need to get back to it that matters. Without it we will only fall deeper into despotism.

    We are probably less than a year away from the great "unplugging" ... no matter who is in office. However, I surely hope that its the one who stands by our consitution and neither of the other two who support big business, totaltarianism, and globalization.

    I agree the one in power is going to remain ... that's been the DEM/GOP Party's goal all along.

    I'm not sure if one care separate ideology from self ...

    In the words of Joseph Strory, commenting on the Constitution in 1833 ...

    "Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from public councils, (such as the RNC did to Ron Paul), because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded, (such as Obama and Romney) because they flatter the people, in order to betray them."

    And I still don't think they do. 1. Energy 2. Unions 3. Government regulations on businesses 4. Healthcare, Romney agrees with certain provisions, not the full package.

    I really don't care what religion they participate in, or whether they believe in evolution. The space program is not a deal breaker for any of them. Global warming is a tax program. I am for the death penalty. Marijuana is even close to being a priority, and subsidizing farmers is not the issue with the economy. Your list of important issues is not even close.

    The real question is do you want to vote for a liar or do you want to vote for liberty and constitution.

    The MSM works very hard to deny the citizens their free choice and make it a 2-Party race to keep the status quo .... however, if you are a 3rd-Party candidate on the ballot in all 50 states ... Gary Johnson has the opportunity to win just like Obama and Romney ... what Johnson lacks is exposure and this is done on purpose ... if you can't see that no wonder we keep going in the same direction of big government, totalitarianism and globalization tearing down our constitution and expecting different results.

    Arizona, I responded to your list of issues. You come back with, Romney is a liar. Gary Johnson doesn't have a chance of winning. Even if he did, he would be totally ineffectual in the oval office. That's my opinion. Lets not waste any more time on it.

    Kimmel, I don't see any difference between Obama and Romney ... they are both liars and they both mislead the people. I will be really surprised if Romney wins because I don't believe he was ever supposed to win... I will be more surprised if Johnson wins because a liberty minded candidate would be the deathnell of big government and wars for profit ... so Obama's win will not be because he's better than Romney, or Johnson ... he will win because the banksters and the powers that be have made sure of it.

    Romney can't win and if by some freak of voter fraud he does ... what's the difference between him and Obama?

    Both support the Patriot Act
    Both support the NDAA
    Both support mandatory national healthcare
    Both support TARP
    Both support Cap &Trade
    Both support the UN and policing the world
    Both support another stimulus
    Both support bigger government

    ... and the list goes on.

    "The name of American, which belongs to you, in your national capactiy must always exalt the just pride of patriotism, more than any appellation derived from local discriminations. Your of liberty ... your respect for the laws, your habits of industry and your practice of the moral and religious obligations are the strongest claims to national and individual happiness." ~ George Washington

    Nor do I accept that. I'm afraid the post distorts some of Romney's and/or Obama's issues. That includes accepting Obama's stated positions as consistent with his heart. They aren't. Especially as regards Israel.

    No different then Romney would continue to do ... throw more support and our tax dollars into foreign aid.

    Well that eliminates both Obama and Romney then now doesn't it... so are you willing to put integrity back in your vote ... ?

    Johnson did not support the Troubled Asset Relief Program, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization, and Job Creation Act of 2010, or any other "bailout" or "stimulus" bills, and opposes President Barack Obama's proposed American Jobs Act.

    He believes the federal spending in these laws is wasteful and ineffectual, and calls them "bloated." He famously quipped, "My next-door neighbor's two dogs have created more shovel ready jobs than this current administration."

    Johnson supports ending the federal personal and corporate income tax system and replacing it with the FairTax reform proposal (while systematically reducing these taxes to near-zero levels), a national consumption tax on new goods and services.

    Good way of describing it.
    This time is so much more crucial than they could possibly imagine.
    Hmmm,I wonder a bit if they would know or even care if things stayed just as they are ,just as long as 0 left town.
    I wonder what makes them tick.
