Johnson/Weld Town Hall on CNN Tonight

I hesitate to post this but CNN is planning one of those Town Hall forums tonight with Libertarian Party presidential candidate Governor Gary Johnson and his running mate Governor Bill Weld. Not sure I'll watch it as I often end up embarrassed but, for those of you with not so strong of feelings as I have, it might be worth sitting in on. It's your chance to see what your alternative in this race is. Oh, I believe it's on at 9pm Eastern Time.

I used to tout the LP, now I'm too embarrassed to even mention them, except in apologetic sentences.
They are moderates, not libertarians.
They tread on freedom of religion, root for the TPP, want government to regulate your mental health, marriage & pot. That's just touching the surface of their anti-libertarian stances.
If you really liberty, including the 9A, there is another candidate out there waiting for you to find him. The liberal media completely ignores him, minus a few paid trolls who spread disinformation.
Seriously, check out

I don't mind the Constitution Party. Much in common with the LP. Don't like the religious right aspect of it, though.

I agree, if you're talking the old LP we loved for years, not this crazy Weld ticket they've pushed on us. It still burns me up.
Yesterday & today, the talk wouldn't stop about Weld' reaffirming his gun control staus and Gary's hit piece on freedom of religion.
Many libertarian news articles have flooded the posts, demanding for Weld to stfu, before the LP looses the rest of the members. (I guess those in Johnson's camp itself aren't as affected).
Tonight, they are all cheering because Weld stfu & Gary acted normalish, on the CNN show.
I can't wait to read tomorrow's posts.

Yes, you're right, the CP & LP are aligned in many ways. They differ on borders (LPopen vs CP secure), drug war (GJ legalize vs DC decriminalize), Marriage (GJ govt. involvement vs CP no govt. involvement at all).
Yeh, a lot of people think they might be too religious, but they follow the 1A, 2A, 3-10A to a tee. No bending, no infringing. They call for the enforceing of laws already on the books against child porn, rape, casino's, porn, yabbadabba.
Their intention is to seek only the solid Christian candidates who will honor & respect the Constitution, and end corruption. They stress that govt. & state must be kept separate, but that the candidate better dam well be an honest man of integrity. That scares many people away lol.

I actually watched the last 45 minutes or so of it. Not too bad and I wasn't as embarrassed as I'd expected to be.

That's the talk going around the boards, too. They finally got weld to stop disclosing their agenda.

The boards have spoken. This is what is echoed.
Cnn interview, johnson said "Last night Johnson said America would basically be getting two presidents for the price of one. They'd share a staff and make decisions together, etc. Is this something they've said before? I didn't think we signed on for Weld to be co-president!"
Bill weld was my role model repeatedly, liberty hangout.
That video says it all.

Johnson deletes any questions or thoughts that may form opposition, on his board. He has done this from the get go. SSome people are just trolls, I get that, but most want questions answered, meanings clarified, and when worse comes to worse, they do intend to open eyes. Not everyone has the time to hear every iota. Censoring is deadly. Voters have a right to know the whole story.
It's up to the voter to validate or not, but at least they have tips to go on when not censored.
