Gary Earl Johnson was born January 1, 1953. Gary is an American businessman, author, politician, and former presidential candidate who served as the 29th governor of New Mexico from 1995 to 2003. In 2012 and 2016 he was the Libertarian Party nominee for President of the United States.
I think this is what draws me to being a Libertarian is wanting less government and government involvement in your life. These are just a couple of the principles which I think if other parties considered them they may have a better chance at understanding one another better instead of trying to take down the other party. I picked Gary because it was during his candidacy that I finally understood where I stood politically.
I’ve stated much of the same and have found others who have this underlying theme that if you don’t like where you’re going that you are the only one that has the power to change the path that you are on in your life. We should be looking at what we want in life, way before we usually do and I know things sometimes get in the way I just think the younger we start with our dreams and goals that the more likely we are to be able to accomplish them.
It was statements like this that also made sense to me and spoke from a different perspective then what we have had and what we’ve been offered for so long. This makes more sense than pretty much anything that I’ve heard that anyone has came up with for many years and yet sadly Gary Johnson didn’t win but I was really hoping he would.
