His education page shares the following:

"Governor Gary Johnson was one of the first governors in the nation to propose and advocate a universally available program of school choice.

He did so while governing with an overwhelmingly Democrat legislature and while facing a powerful teachers’ union. He was well aware that his proposal would not be enacted and would generate fierce opposition. However, he believed it was important to raise the issue and force the teachers’ unions to defend a clearly failing status quo.

More broadly, Gov. Johnson believes there is no role for the Federal Government in education. He would eliminate the federal Department of Education, and return control to the state and local levels. He opposes Common Core and any other attempts to impose national standards and requirements on local schools, believing the key to restoring education excellence in the U.S. lies in the innovation, freedom and flexibility that federal interference inherently discourages.

As Governor, he saw first-hand that the costs of federal education programs and mandates far outweigh any benefits, both educationally and financially."

What are your thoughts? Let me know, I'm a bit divided on this currently.

Jesse "Burgerm'n" Radin I think Common Core is actually an improvement. It's the way I did math in my head when I was six. The whole reason the US fails is our math is touchy-feely bullshit, where we hug every cat.

Working with BLM to build a freer and more just country does not mean libertarians have to hold hands with the activists currently mobilizing the movement. It means acknowledging that the problems they are confronting exist and that they need to be addressed.

And it means acknowledging that it is very much a race problem. Some libertarians try to argue that the socio-economic issues facing black communities are poverty-based and that racism is not a big issue. But even controlling for wealth, black people are clearly suffering at the hands of the law and facing greater economic hurdles than are people of other ethnicities. Is there a systematic war on black people? No, obviously. But to deny that racism exists is to deny reality.

I would even contend that, even if there was conclusive statistical evidence that race is not a factor in the treatment or outcomes of individuals, the perception of that impediment is sufficiently great as to demand acknowledgement. Sometimes a dominant cultural narrative is unresponsive to facts alone. To achieve real change, we sometimes have to accept realities as they are perceived, not just what statistics and data tell us. There is a real feeling of fear and abandonment in many black communities. Only through a compassionate and understanding policy platform can libertarians help to improve the lives of these citizens.

What we need to do is move beyond the traditional libertarian pitch to America’s black communities, which has failed utterly to resonate. Yes, the Drug War is a problem. It is responsible for incarcerating black people, particularly men, at horrifying rates. And it has claimed countless lives through its contributions to gang war, overdoses, and police action. This argument is a very powerful one we need to maintain. But it is not sufficient to winning black communities over to a libertarian viewpoint.

Like, all the Republican Senators and Congresspeople who don't actually like Trump coming out in solidarity for Johnson, the RNC putting its get out the vote effort into electing Johnson. He still wouldn't win, but it might give them the appearance of rejecting Trump for another candidate who is actually on the ballot.

It's not that different than pulling Trump from the ballot and replacing him. And Johnson and Weld are former Republican governors. It's not like they have nothing to do with the party. I think it's their only hope to save face at least a little. Your thoughts?

These polls are not "fair and unbiased" as they are made out to be.

1) ABC-Washington Post poll which did NOT mention Johnson’s name in any questions in its only poll after the first debate: (9/28-9/30) https://www.washingtonpost.com/.../postpollarchive.html
ABC-Washington Post hasn’t polled Gary since this 9/19-22 poll https://www.washingtonpost.com/.../Polling/release_446.xml which includes Johnson’s name in ONE question vs. 21 questions about Clinton and Trump.

2) CBS-New York Times poll from 10/3/16 which first asked if respondents would vote for Clinton or Trump THEN followed that question with the inclusion of Johnson and Stein

“This behavior is unacceptable,” he said. “The East Koreans are making us look like idiots.”

I've been a huge Gary Johnson supporter from day one that he got the nomination of the Libertarian party but now I'm slowly beginning to regret it as he airs more and more of his views on foreign policy. I suspect the Aleppo gaffe was just the beginning. There's probably more to come.

Wow I had no idea he was dumber than Trump on climate change. Might as well stop doing anything productive cause planet Earth will be destroyed in a billion years. Anyways, his statement shows a complete disregard for evidence which points to increasing global temperatures every year.

I've voted in just three presidential elections so far... 2004 (Kerry), 2008 (Obama) and 2012 (Johnson). Of those three, Johnson is the one I was most excited about. While I was passionate about Obama in 2012, Gary Johnson is the candidate that I've agreed with the most on his stances on the issues.

He is more fiscally conservative than I am on things like taxation but I prefer his stances to the milquetoast policies espoused by the Democrats and Republicans. We have a lot of issues in the US with taxation and productivity in general and maybe a more libertarian ideology would benefit us.

I love his unfilitered and straightforward approach to social issues. He's big on legalizing marijuana and gay marriage (though it's legal now, of course). 

Some people may be uneasy with his approach to some issues but I appericate his opinions and would love to see him get a decent chunk of the vote. But with the way the US is set up, there is not really any chance for a third party other than some small offices at the local level. 

But Johnson is my choice as I expect him to run and win the Libertarian nomination.
