Ron Paul and Gary Johnson on the Drug War

Drug War 4 Comments

This is a really interesting contrast in both style and content. (I didn’t watch the Republican debate, so this is the first I’ve seen of it.) HT2 LRC

  1. Evilsceptic says:

    I think it’s great. Paul took on the drug war from an ideological stand point while Johnson takes a more practical aproach. This may combat the myth that Libertarians are “Hippy utopians who can’t get their heads out of the clouds”. Johnsons’ presence at the debate was also a plus because it gave fox someone they wanted to snub (dont as me why) more than paul.

  2. Paul says:

    “We don’t have a first amendment so that we can talk about the weather.”

  3. TheMichaelOnline says:

    Paul strikes me as more deontological and Johnson as more utilitarian… maybe the wrong choice of words, but I think y’all get what I’m saying.

  4. Joe says:

    I think it’s important to realize that both candidates believe 100% of what the other person was saying. This one-two punch is going to be a huge boost for the movement!
