Just wanted to take this moment to make official my endorsement of former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson in the 2012 Republican presidential primary.
Governor Johnson has proven himself to be a principled advocate for limited government, fiscal responsibility, constitutional ideals, and respect for individual liberties. He has the proven executive experience that we need in a president who will make the tough decisions required to bring this country back from the brink of fiscal ruin and restore the People’s faith in their federal government.
While other candidates talk about reducing the size and scope of government, Governor Johnson has put those words into action. In his administration, “veto” was not a four-letter word.
While other candidates talk about the defense and preservation of individual liberty, Governor Johnson understands that such a fight must include the liberties of those individuals whose behavioral norms might not coincide with his own, or with those of the majority of the American public.
I ran for office in 2010 on a platform of common sense, fiscal responsibility, individual liberty and limited, constitutional government. Gary Johnson shares those ideals, and I am proud to endorse his candidacy for the presidency of the United States of America.
