Gary Johnson In 2012!
Past two- time Governor of New Mexico, Gary Johnson, formally declared his candidacy as a Republican nominee for President today. How refreshing to have a straight talking guy in the race.
No, I don't think he'll win the nomination. I think he'll probably be treated worse than Ron Paul was by the mainstream Republicans, but that doesn't matter. He's got my vote.
Whether I'll switch parties in order to vote for him in the primary remains to be seen. Probably not, since you can bet the vast majority of Republicans will vote for a more statist candidate.
Now it's up to all of us to head to his campaign web site and donate. You'll also want to go to his Facebook page, like him, and get everyone else you know to do the same.
I realize this is a bit early but let's get this show on the road!
