Gary the reason you are being ignored by the Republicans is because we don't want you to run for President.

So your feelings are hurt knowing the truth so now you want to quit the GOP and join another party.

Good luck, they don't want you either but go ahead and make the switch, you won't win anyway.

I have you down as a poor loser.

Hey, Blunt, not so rough on Big J. I was a Democrat who crossed party lines to vote for him. The reason that the GOP mafia won't accept Johnson is because he has the testicular fortitude to take a postion and stick with it, rather than morphing himself into whatever the GOP cronies want him to be on any given day. I would vote for Johnson over most of the other GOP candidates.

First I admit I was not living here when he was Governor, it is more the way he comes across on a few issues but what really got me was his remark he is not wanted by the GOP so he is going to change to another party.

Name any of those running who feel they are not wanted by their own party and says I am going to quit and switch to xxx party?

That is what got me, instead of admitting the GOP does not feel he has a chance and won't support him for that reason he whines they don't want him.

Or put another way he refuses to admit he knows he has no chance of winning, why widen the field when there are way to many now who should drop out and back the one or two that have the best chance of beating Obama?

I have nothing personal against him, as I said was not living here so have no pus or minus as I do against Mr. Pay to Play Richardson.

I liked Johnson as Governor but did/do not like his stance on drugs, so I'd never vote for his as POTUS.

His unwavering stance on issues, regardless of my agreement on them or not, is a commendable and VERY rare quality among politicians.

The republicans don't wanrt Gary Johnson because he has real common sense solutions for Americas problems & ethics that can't be bought or sold. Other politicians don't want him around because they are up to their asses in corruption. He did an awesome job as gov of NM It makes sad for America that it has turned its back on him. I too was ready to cross party lines and vote for him.
So much for what is good for America

has more credibility than half the people running for the republican ticket. Kind of amazing that a two-term ex-governor can be excluded from the debates on the basis that he doesn't have the money or polling numbers you only get if people see you up there.

these two? You guys pick a new fool every week and not a one of them has any substance or character. The weekly debates work against them all.

I don't pick who decides to run for any political office, I don't vote party line either.

But I don't like corrupt politicians and 99.9% of them are, at all levels from city council to President.

As I stated I was not living in NM when Gary was Governor, I can only base MY OPINION on what I hear, read and research about him.

But to claim no one in the GOP wants him so he is going to quit sounds a lot like Palin who could or would not even finish her term as Governor of Alaska, quitters are not people I care to vote for anymore than one whose ego says THEY DON'T LIKE OR WANT ME SO I WILL CHANGE PARTIES.

Everyone of them has at least one good quality about them and a lot of baggage being dragged behind them and that goes for all political parties.

There is NO HONEST politician alive.

I could give you several issues that would win my vote, if one is not what I want but all others are there it would be a tough fight to win that vote.

As for one issue I will agree 100%, medical use of marijuana/cannabis.

I have personally seen what it does to help some people with certain illnesses but far to many lie to get a doctor to issue it to them.

And the Federal Government still considers it an illegal drug, that has to change but I am not sold on its use for pleasure.

Any bets Gary smokes it for pleasure since he is all for it?

Bluntly Spoken: I would not say because Gary Johnson is so for legalizing marijuana that it means he smokes it. I am for legalizing it too, just because of what I have seen with what "The War on Drugs" is doing to our country.

I do not smoke Marijuana. I do not use drugs of any kind and never have, nor do I smoke anything now or ever.

My money is on the fact he has smoked it for pleasure many times, as to whether or not he is now I would not bet on that.

But I would not be overly surprised if he does every once in a while.

Legalizing it for medical purposes with strict vitrifaction the person truly has an illness it is covered for yes, pleasure smoking, NO.

I have seen personally how it has helped people with MS, I have also seen how pleasure smoking it is no different than drinking and driving.

That said, what one does in their own home is their business, get drunk, get stoned, screw guys or gals or whatever, I could care less but not in public.

I will say I don't subscribe to those who claim smoking pot leads people to doing heavier drugs and I know that for a fact as I know people who grew up during the true hippie era that still smoke a joint or two and never have ever touched anything else, in fact some don't even drink alcohol.

Johnson is one of the few politicians who has had the courage to be totally honest about his drug history. Personally, I think that people who smoke marijuana are far less dangerous to society than people who abuse alcohol.

He wrecked our state. That's not fortitude, that's being a jerk. We went fro m35th in education to 53rd, only above Guam, and behind Puerto Rico, under him. We also had the highest crime rate in the US, and if we'd been our own country, we'd been 7th in the world, right after nigeria who was having a civil war right then.

He was pro-dope, only because under state law, the state has to pay for rehab on drug convictions, and he was hoping to move it to a discretionary part of the budget, rather than automatic.

He left his wife, while she had a kid at home, and shacked up with another, and his wife died of heartbreak. He's a loser all the way around. BTW, I knew an elder in his church ,he was not lutheran, he was not allowed to commune, either. He's just a doper, which makes him a witch.

The only job growth under him was CYFD reps, because he needed a place to put Heather wilson after her hubby was arrested for assaulting a foster kid, and prison guard. He did nothing for NM.

Johnson had more honesty and integrity in his little pinky than Richardson had in all of his fat blubbery body. I hope Fat Bill ends up being cell mates with Manny, so they can massage each other's prostate glands every night and reminisce about how they sodomized the citizens of New Mexico.

I will back out of this issue, I was not living here when Johnson was Governor but was with Pay to Play Richardson.

All I can say about Richardson is he has enough connections all the way to the White House to stop any investigation from hauling his butt into court and charging him.

And they all know what he does, not did but somehow, someway is still doing it.

When I say all the ways up I mean President Obama has one way or another put the word out to leave Pay to Play Fat Bill alone.

He left this state with a surplus at the end of his term. Quite a contrast from three chins under investigation Retardson. He wanted to make generation2generation welfare a temporary benefit but Aragon (soon to be his cellmate) and his cronys fought him tooth and nail on that.

I don't smoke but if he does smoke, I would still rather vote for him that the losers we now have.
