Not (Ever!) Gonna “Feel The Johnson…!”
Remember this Gary Johnson…
“Prohibit the late-term abortion procedure known as “partial-birth” abortion.”
Pro Choice but Anti-Abortion, sounds like a politician….
“Should New Mexico government funding be provided to clinics and medical facilities that provide abortion services? Yes”
People of conscience should be allowed to opt out of funding. Let those who support it, fund it.
Against affirmative action in all forms… okay….
“Support contracting with private sector firms to build and/or manage state prisons.”
Great, now if we could just write laws to ensure those prisons stay full so the contractors give good return on their investment…
” End parole for repeat violent felons.”
“Support the current limit defining drunk driving at .08 blood alcohol content.”
“Prosecute juveniles who commit murder or other serious violent crimes as adults.”
“Support the “life for life” proposal, where life imprisonment sentences mean no possibility for parole.”
Keep those prisons FULL!
“Expand the use of the death penalty for additional circumstances relating to murder.”
So much for reforming the corrupt legal system for the poor.
“Reduce state government regulations on the private sector in order to encourage investment and economic expansion.”
Waiting for the other shoe of campaign finance support, to follow.
“Provide parents with state-funded vouchers to send their children to any participating school (public, private, religious)”
“Favor charter schools where independent groups receive state authorization and funding to establish new schools.”
A violation of separation between church and state neutrality.
“Support “self-audit” legislation which creates incentives for industries to audit themselves and clean up pollution.”
You have GOT to be kidding me…!!!
“Restructure the electric utility industry to allow consumers to choose their power company.”
May the best advertiser win…
“State environmental regulations should not be stricter than federal law.”
So much for the states being stricter than the Feds. Let corporations auction off pollution rights.
Indicate the level of government that should have primary responsibility for the following services. Select one level only.
|Federal||a) Border security|
|Federal||b) Civil rights enforcement|
|State||d) Environmental cleanup|
|e) Job training|
|Local||f) Law enforcement|
|Local||g) Low-income housing|
|j) Transportation infrastructure (highways, roads, bridges)|
He sure likes the Federal Government, doesn’t he?
c) Do you support limiting the following types of contributions to state legislative candidates?
|Yes||d) Do you support requiring full and timely disclosure of campaign finance information?|
|No||e) Do you support imposing spending limits on state level political campaigns?|
|No||f) Do you support partial funding from state taxes for state level political campaigns?|
|Yes||g) Do you support an amendment to the U.S. Constitution requiring an annual balanced federal budget?|
Is there anything you refuse to auction off???
“Maintain state restrictions on the purchase and possession of firearms.”
Shall NOT be infringed…. Constitution, DID you read it?!!
” Transfer more existing Medicaid recipients into managed care programs.”
Creating a government monopoly BEFORE Obamneycare!
“Favor banning smoking in public places.”
“Do you believe that the New Mexico government should recognize same-sex marriages?”
So much for liberty.
He wants to increase or maintain the state budgets for every sector….
How do you do that without raising taxes?
Maintain “sin” taxes, gas taxes, and sales taxes.
Decrease Corporate tax, Capital gains tax, and maintain Sales tax.
Doesn’t want to abolish the Income Tax, he wants to save it with a “Flat Tax” so YOU pay as much as the rich, and they get back 3 times as much as you will ever make!
“Limit welfare to 5 years.”
Better hope corporations decide to hire people at some point or you’re FUCKED!
Maintain “workfare” slave labor where you have to do unpaid community service and job training, while looking for a job, even if you are POOR!
“In 1994 I promised to make state government more accountable to New Mexico’s citizens. A lot has been accomplished. Top priorities for 1998? Improve education, continue streamlining government making it more accountable to New Mexicans; I will also continue to promote a business friendly environment increasing economic development that will create higher paying jobs; With two new prisons we will keep criminals behind bars. Finally, my promise is to continue to put people before politics.”
Squeeze the economy dry through tax break loopholes for Corporations, increase education to get kids in debt to the bankers, PRISONS are an economic BOON to the local economy… (does that scare the shit out of anyone?!!! If you are poor, how are you supposed to escape poverty with no resources, and obligations you can’t meet, because you couldn’t meet them before?)
He seems to put profit before people. Unless the people he is talking about are Corporations….
And the people are there to be a source of revenue through taxes, and fines, and “sin fees.”
This was Gary Johnson in 1998.
Is this the kind of man you want in 2016?
How this guy got the Libertarian nomination, I will NEVER know…
Probably by default.
He was the most experienced of the bad lot.
Is that really something to celebrate…
Or recoil from….???
“Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes (Turn and face the strange)
Turn and face the strain
Don’t have to be a richer man
Ch-ch-Changes (Turn and face the strange)
Don’t want to be a better man
Time may change me
But I can’t trace time”
PSST! His VP, is much, MUCH… Worse!!!
