Gary Johnson on Paul Ryan: "He Is Anything But A Libertarian"

Gary Johnson is not happy that some in the media call Republican vice presidential candidate and Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan a libertarian.

“He voted for the Patriot Act, he voted for the National Defense Appropriation Act, he voted to ban online poker, he’s proposing a budget that gets balanced in thirty years. He is anything but a libertarian, anything but,” said Johnson after a packed campaign dinner at Hill’s CafĂ©.

Johnson, the Libertarian Party nominee for president, noted that Ryan was a strict social conservative that voted to restrict abortion rights and against marriage equality.

“Paul Ryan submitted personhood legislation that is anything but libertarian,” he said. Johnson's eyes widened and his volume increased as he went into detail about Ryan’s support for a national version of Virginia’s controversial transvaginal ultrasound law.

Johnson suggested that all the talk of Ryan as a libertarian and follower of Ayn Rand may help him because people will see pretty quickly that former New Mexico governor is the only real libertarian running.

  1. Gary Johnson is 100% right! He has been fighting the real cause of Libertarianism for some time now. Most real Libertarians would never vote for Romney. Others fear that a vote for Gary Johnson would allow the worst evil of all, Obama four more years. My suggestion: Support Gary Johnson to get him up to the 15% needed to get in the national debates and let him take it from there. He is a proven winner with ideas that America loves.
