The Libertarian Patriot
Sure sounds like it to me
Bill Cunningham podcast
I think the important thing now is to make sure Obama is not elected, and that means in my mind, listen I would love for a libertarian like Gary Johnson the two term governor of New Mexico would actually get elected President, but I think we all know that’s not going to happen so therefore it’s got to be Romney there is no choice.Root, the 2008 Libertarian Party Vice Presidential nominee and current Chairman of the Libertarian National Campaign Committee tries to backpedal, claiming his words were taken out of context...
Taken from the comment section of an Independent Political Report post on the subject.
Wow I just saw this. Seems certain LP people are as bad as the two parties in grabbing a sentence out of context. And leaving out the meat of the interview. That is not what I said. And you know that's not what I said.Root can deny this all he wants but his words in the audio are as plain as day, "it’s got to be Romney there is no choice.", that's what he said.
I said in a perfect world I’d like to see Gary Johnson elected President, he’d be the best choice out there…I also said several times on the call that Mitt Romney is a big spending, big government Northeast liberal…that he will make very little difference because of this…
That’s what I said. It’s on tape. Sorry folks but you can’t take things out of context.
It's time for Root to step down as LP Campaign Committee Chairman as a party cannot have one of it's most influential members even tacitly endorsing a candidate from another party. This does nothing but undermine Governor Johnson's campaign as Root's words will be undoubtedly used by the Romney camp later on to sway Libertarians and others to vote for the GOP nominee.
The fact remains that Romney is nothing more than an Obama-lite candidate who will do little to stop Leviathan's encroachment of our liberties and debasement of our economy.
What difference does it make if you drive the car off the cliff at 100 mph or 80 mph; you've still driven off the cliff.
Gary Johnson is the last hope for our Republic in 2012 and has the proven track record to make the changes needed to turn this nation around for the better.
