There is an argument going over at Delaware Politics that everyone must see… The title is Delaware Beware!! The Libertarians!! One former libertarian candidate filed for a Republican seat, and is running against the Democratic challenger. The Republican Party could find no one to run against him. So one Republican was checking out his facebook page, and discovered, (like every normal red-blooded American) he has said some disparaging things about the Republican Party… For good reason, of course.
If you drop down and read the comment section, where the Republicans try to purify the party, and then the Republican/Libertarian candidate comes on and defends himself, and then the spokesperson for Libertarianism himself jumps into the fray, you rapidly come to the conclusion that Will McVay is a very good human being who will serve his district very well, and that the Republican Party as it exists in Sussex County, needs to throw itself off the Indian River Bridge….
Whenever someone asks you if you are a Republican, you get this pastel glow inside when you think of the Republican Party under Ronald Reagan, and you say yes, and proud of it… But… the Republican Party of today, is not that party. It is the party of doom.
The Libertarian Party looks at our people and sees a new dawn of the American spirit.
The Republican Party looks at our nation and sees the twilight of the American soul. A soul besieged by gays, by Muslims, by Iranians, by environmentalists, by bureaucrats, by doctors, by nurses, by insurance companies, by Liberals, by atheists, by condoms, by birth control, by Planned Parenthood, by babies, by education, by the Department of Education, by the Department of Health and Human Services…. and yes, and higher taxes…
We can’t go forward America…. Oh, raise taxes and its the end of the world. Oh, allow gays to love like everyone else, and it’s the end of the world… Oh, allow freedom of religion and extend it to Muslims, and it’s the end of the world. Oh, attack and kill Osama bin Laden so people know we have that capacity, … and it’s the end of the world… Oh, make one super billionaire pay fifty cents more in taxes… and its the end of the world….
Ronald Reagan campaigned upon his optimism… Upon reading the Republican Platform of 1984, when Ronald Reagan ran against Mondale-Ferraro, the optimism that today is Gary Johnson, jumps right out you… Gary Johnson is the REAL Republican… Mitt Romney is the impostor…
But Republicans already know that… Mitt Romney is the impostor. Mitt Romney is the official candidate because he bought the seat…. Everyone knows that. When it looked like Romney was the presumptive nominee, everyone flocked to Michelle Bachmann… straw poll in Iowa .. she won… Perry entered the race to become the prime contender. Oops, couldn’t remember the third Department that he’d cut…. Hermain Cain, jumped into the role of party Savior… That dang woman problem… Oh, Newt Gignrich is running… Back him… ummm no.. Rick Santorum comes close then upon recount actually wins Iowa over Mitt Romney… He becomes the new opposition. Surprise! Gingrich wins South Carolina… Then Romney outspends in Florida, wins, and becomes the front runner… If it weren’t for Florida, and the gullibility of old people who didn’t have TV when growing up and actually believe everything they see on it, including political ads, Romney would not the Republican candidate right now…
So Romney is an impostor… and Gary Johnson is the new Ronald Reagan….
Let me show you just how far away today’s Republican Party has strayed from the party of Ronald Reagan. I will also show you how Gary Johnson is a far better Republican candidate than either Romney or Ryan. Here is the Republican Platform from 1984 outlining tax cuts.
The bulk of the tax cut goes to those who pay most of the taxes: middle-income taxpayers. Nearly three-fourths of its benefits go to taxpayers earning less than $50,000. In fact, these taxpayers now pay a smaller percentage of total income taxes than they did in 1980; and those earning more than $50,000 pay a larger percentage of total income taxes than they did in 1980.
Mitt Romney’s plan will raise taxes on everyone who is making less then $10 million a year, and then cut taxes for those making $10 million and above… Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan do not care one iota about you! The don’t care about your children either. Or their children…. All Mitt Romney cares about is not paying taxes himself… That is why he won’t turn over his tax forms… He didn’t pay taxes at all the past ten years!!!!!!!!! The Republican Party has finally divorced the middle class and is now shacked up with billionaires… Just curious, is that what you signed up for when you became a Republican?
The Republican you are looking for is Gary Johnson… Unfortunately his emphasis on Reagan Republicanism did not bode well with the billionaires who control the GOP from top to bottom and Gary, is instead now after the Iowa primary, running on the Libertarian ticket after being shoved aside. blackballed by the corporate media in the first primaries of this election cycle….Gary Johnson IS the Ronald Reagan ticket… If you are middle class; Gary Johnson is your Republican. If you are a student; Gary Johnson is your Republican; If you are a Christian, either protestant or catholic, Gary Johnson is your Republican…. Just looking at Gary Johnson makes Romney/Ryan to appear like Thurston Howe and Gilligan….
Most of you are Republican because at one point, it represented middle class values… Well, it doesn’t anymore… Not since Grover Norquist took over. It represents only the very top echelon of existence. Today, there are only two candidates running who represent the middle class. That is Obama and Gary Johnson.. If you can’t bring yourself to vote another term for Obama, then it is time to make Gary Johnson your Republican…..
In a national poll, Obama was at 45%, Gary Johnson was at 24%, and Mitt Romney just slipped ahead of Gary at 27%…. People everywhere are fed up with Romney/Ryan spoon feeding triple digit billionaires. The middle class is hurting, it needs a champion….
Meet Gary Johnson.
We believe that respect for individual rights is the essential precondition for a free and prosperous
world, that force and fraud must be banished from human relationships, and that only through
freedom can peace and prosperity be realized.
Consequently, we defend each person’s right to engage in any activity that is peaceful and honest,
and welcome the diversity that freedom brings. The world we seek to build is one where individuals
are free to follow their own dreams in their own ways, without interference from government or any
Now compare that to Ronald Reagan’s Republican Party of 1984!
From freedom comes opportunity; from opportunity comes growth; from growth comes progress.
This is not some abstract formula. It is the vibrant, beating heart of the American experience. No matter how complex our problems, no matter how difficult our tasks, it is freedom that inspires and guides the American Dream.
If everything depends on freedom—and it does—then securing freedom, at home and around the world, is one of the most important endeavors a free people can undertake.
Gary Johnson is indeed the new Ronald Reagan… Not that impostor always followed by a gaggle of stiff white shirts, not that impostor, who was placed there by millions of dollars that no long flow through middle class hands…
Doesn’t this sound just like Ronald Reagan?….
We hold that all individuals have the right to exercise sole dominion over their own lives, and have
the right to live in whatever manner they choose, so long as they do not forcibly interfere with the
equal right of others to live in whatever manner they choose.
Let me tell you about Gary Johnson. As governor of New Mexico, he cut taxes 14 times… Romney raised them $700 million. Gary Johnson vetoed legislation 750 times. Romney vetoed 800 times… Gary Johnson’s vetos all held… Romneys all got passed over him, often unanimously.
With the addition of Paul Ryan as second in command, it is clear that the Republican party has decided to abandon middle class voters and begin pandering to special interests… For one that is more fun for Romney, who is physically uncomfortable when standing next to anyone worth less than $100 million. For two, he is in it only for the money. Middle class voters have none of that now…
Reagan Republicans should consider Gary Johnson. He eliminated New Mexico’s budget deficit, cut the rate of growth in state government in half. He is more representative of Tea Party ideals than tea leaves themselves.
Still not a Republican enough for you? Tell me who else do you know with this list of accomplishments? (I took the liberty of highlighting some that are certainly Reaganisque.)
Left office with New Mexico as one of the only four states in the country with a balanced budget
Left New Mexico with a budget surplus
Used Line Item Veto thousands of times to trim the budget
Vetoed 750 bills during his time in office; more than all other governors combined
Cut over 1,200 government jobs without firing anyone
Created more than 20,000 new jobs
First New Mexico Governor to challenge education status quo and propose statewide voucher program
Restored State General Fund reserves to more than $222 million from a low of $28.1 million
Limited annual state budget growth to 5.0% during eight years in office
Cut taxes 14 times while never raising them—a first for New Mexico
Vetoed 32% of the total number of bills submitted for his signature
Ok, Republicans…. you have three choices… One, you can sit out the election and not vote for an impostor….. Two, you swallow your pride and vote for Obama…. And three, you can vote for Gary Johnson….
