Refusing To Settle: Gary Johnson For President

I simply can't put the square peg in the circle hole. I am firmly committed to defeating Barack Obama and turning back his disastrous policies, and I wanted to believe that I could support whomever the Republican Party nominated. Unfortunately, I cannot in good conscience do that.

We need to have not only statesmen step up to truly represent the people of this nation in government, but to have them populace embrace this deeper involvement in a nation that we benefit from an contribute to. 

Partisan political affiliations are far less important to me than principle. I don't consider myself a Republican first, I consider myself a limited-government conservative first; the party label comes in a distant second. I won't simply blindly support a Republican nominee just because he has an R beside his name. The truth is political parties don't believe in anything — well, anything except winning — and believing in something is exactly why I got involved in politics in the first place.

When it comes to selecting a candidate for president, I don't want to settle on the lesser of two evils or support the nominee just to be a good "team player." I want to believe in that candidate.
