The Libertarian vice presidential candidate told WJBC Tuesday he and running mate GaryJohnson want to balance the budget, bring troops home, and repeal the income tax if they win the November election.
Judge Jim Gray said an income tax repeal, besides saving the country as much as $600 billion in money spent keeping records for the taxes, could also help the country’s exports.
GaryJohnson, the Libertarian Party’s nominee for president, isn’t going to win in November. But were we to challenge him to a bike race, a 400-meter sprint or even water polo, the 59-year-old New Mexico ex-governor would skunk us. Johnson’s athletic accomplishments—he’s climbed Mount Everest and finished Ironmans—sound like the bucket list of an obsessive compulsive. But his biggest marathon might be his presidential run.

Former New Mexico Governor GaryJohnson was in town campaigning for president on the Libertarian ticket. And while Southern Nevada leans blue and Northern Nevada leans red, Governor Johnson thinks the time may be right for a third party candidate to make some noise right here in the Silver State.

If Paul supporters have any doubts, GaryJohnson will be speaking at PaulFest before the GOP Convention.
Presidential Candidate and Former New Mexico Governor GaryJohnson came by last week to talk about his campaign. We'll be running clips from that interview over the next several days. The Libertarian Party candidate favors the legalization of pot; he also has unusual views about other drugs.

Last week, the Justice Department issued letters to 10 state-legal medical marijuana facilities demanding that they shut down. Fifty-seven total businesses have now received such letters.
Letter to the Editor: A better choice for president
August 13, 2012
By Howard Wilson
The issue difference between Mitt Romney and President Obama is minimal at best. Whether Romney initiated a health-care system in Massachusetts that Obama swiped for his health care takeover, or the two thought up what comes down to government control of medical care, independently means little. Either source is driving medical specialists and generalists to quit the medical profession.
Consider the alternative: GaryJohnson, the Libertarian Party candidate for president. He has eight years of experience as governor of New Mexico, saying no to more than 750 bills. Neither Romney nor Obama can say that. Both seem to be yes-men for anything that grows government.
