Is Gary Johnson a libertarian?

Yes, Gary Johnson is the Libertarian Party nominee for President. And yes, I cast a lukewarm vote for him for president in 2012. While he certainly understands that the most awesome constitutional power the executive has is that of the veto, we really need to ask how truly libertarian is he?

I’ll leave this article here and let you decide.

He does have some upsides – the veto pen, legal marijuana, far less foreign intervention. However, it would have been nice for the Libertarians to actually nominate a libertarian.

About Food for the Thinkers

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding. Check out my old page at And remember: When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. But when you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.
