Donald Trump is appealing to a segment Ill just label racist, says Gary Johnson, a former two-term Republican governor of New Mexico and the 2012 Libertarian Party presidential candidate. It exists and its out there."
"I dont want to have anything to do with it, says Johnson. It embarrasses me. The electorate will paint the entire Republican Party with a broad brush as a result of Trump and it wont be positive. Johnson started the 2012 campaign as a Republican before switching to the LP and pulling 1.2 million votes and 1 percent of ballots cast in the general election, recent highs for a Libertarian candidate.
In announcing his presidential campaign in June, Trump asserted that, When Mexico sends its people, theyre not sending their best. Theyre sending people that have lots of problems. Theyre bringing drugs. Theyre bringing crime. Theyre rapists. Although he allowed that some, I assume, are good people, NBC and other business associates cut ties the New York-based billionaire....

Another loser puts in his 2 cents.
MEANINGLESS WORDS. In certain kinds of writing, particularly in art criticism and literary criticism, it is normal to come across long passages which are almost completely lacking in meaning(2). Words like romantic, plastic, values, human, dead, sentimental, natural, vitality, as used in art criticism, are strictly meaningless, in the sense that they not only do not point to any discoverable object, but are hardly ever expected to do so by the reader. When one critic writes, The outstanding feature of Mr. X’s work is its living quality, while another writes, The immediately striking thing about Mr. X’s work is its peculiar deadness, the reader accepts this as a simple difference opinion. If words like black and white were involved, instead of the jargon words dead and living, he would see at once that language was being used in an improper way. Many political words are similarly abused. The word Fascism has now no meaning except in so far as it signifies something not desirable.
Over fifty years later, just sub racism for fascism.
Gary Johnson won against Martin Chávez mayor of Albuquerque in 1998.
In the capital city, Santa Fe, his headquarters was across the lot from that of the Republican candidate for then-Third Congressional District Bill Redmond.
Redmond had won the May 1997 special election to fill Bill Richardson's seat vacant after Bill Clinton called on his friend for the UN and later Energy.
In the UN Richardson would offer Monica a job. At Energy he would trash Notra Trulock for trying to get to the bottom of the Wen Ho Lee espionage case.
Gary Johnson at no point in the 1998 campaign made the slightest mention or gesture of support on behalf of Bill Redmond.
Today Gary Johnson whines that Donald Trump articulating the abomination of Mexican criminals rampant in America will tarnish the Republican brand as racist.
At present, the Republican brand is the Gary Johnson purse-carrying eunuch.
Jeez, I thought Gary had a good head on his shoulders. Looks like he’s just another leftist is liberaltarian clothing.
Now ya know where all the Acapulco Gold goes these days.
Dem and Lib think tanks.
Just how many ILLEGAL’S did this proud liberal take in to his home to clothe and feed?? You mean he isn’t supporting them with his OWN MONEY? Look in the mirror Johnson, the problems with America will become self evident!

Excellent post. I wonder if someone is dangling a carrot in front of the dope smoking bike weenie, promising him some sort of position, or if his two remaining brain cells are crying out to be relevant some how. Perhaps Rand?, which means his bed-fellow by default, McConnell? They’re starting to genuinely worry about Donald....
So we are all racists because we are being invaded by anoother country supported by the government
