Gary Johnson at UNH this Wednesday

Former New Mexico Governor and possible 2012 GOP presidential candidate Gary Johnson will be at the University of New Hampshire in Durham tomorrow (Wednesday, February 23, 2011). Johnson will be discussing his decidedly Libertarian vision for America, which includes auditing the Federal reserve, legalizing marijuana, and ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. There's sure to be something about the Constitution thrown in there for good measure as well.

The event kicks off at 6:00 PM in Room 336 of the Memorial Union Building and is being hosted by the Young Americans for Liberty at UNH.


Excellent coverage of this event by The New Hampshire:

No excuses offered from presidential candidate during visit - Faris Al-Hashmi


  1. Governor Johnson is my FIRST choice for president in 2012.

  2. When we advocate against Cannabis prohibition, we must stress not just the "denial of good" which it entails, such as the remarkable medicinal properties of the plant, its violence-suppressing potential, or its ability to induce calm and relaxed state which is "worlds apart" from the effects of alcohol and many "legal" prescription drugs. Cannabis Prohibition is an unadulterated evil, as it pushes the people to engage in a dangerous substance use, such as the stories with alcoholic caffeinated drinks just explicitly demonstrated. The cruelty and senselessness of the prohibitionists have also been made obvious recently, when an Oklahoma mom received 10-year sentence for $31worth of Cannabis, when the medicinal Cannabis providers and patients continue to be raided and harassed. What more evidence of political piracy can be presented than when the dogmatic "politicos" want to directly trample the Will of Montana voters with respect to Medicinal Cannabis, which Citizens lawfully enacted in their state, or when Las Vegas police and DEA continue to harass the Medicinal Cannabis establishments? To what level of hypocrisy and spiritual degradation can one descend when the medicinal Cannabis patients are persecuted in the city where alcohol abuse and compulsive gambling are rampant?! My only hope in the midst of all this prohibitionist outrage is that its collapse is philosophically inevitable. In particular, when the DEA and its allies blackmail politicians into voting against Medicinal Cannabis, they do so on the basis of an unreal "entity", the so-called "gateway drug" theory that is fully discredited by now as "half-baked"! How can our so-called "representatives" put important social programs on a "chopping block" because of the "budget crisis", while these same people waste tens of millions of dollars on the so-called "marijuana enforcement", opposed by most of this country's voters! The Cannabis prohibitionists are guilty of crimes against humanity, they will be called to answer for them sooner or later!
