Top 5 Reasons Libertarians Shouldn’t Vote for Gary Johnson

Johnson is Problematic for Libertarians

by Josh Guckert

Gary Johnson has gained unprecedented coverage for a Libertarian candidate thus far this cycle, but as many libertarians would tell you, there’s plenty to be desired. These are the ten reasons why libertarians shouldn’t vote for Johnson.

1. Hasn’t Mentioned the Non-Aggression Principle

Johnson has gone at least several weeks without mentioning the NAP. While this is likely an oversight, it presents an issue. How can Americans embrace the Libertarian Party if they do not hear about the wonders of the core philosophical tenet? At one recent Johnson event, several interested voters were asked about their position on the NAP.

After the undecideds stated that they were fans of napping, the libertarian questioner clarified that he meant the “NAP” as an abbreviation for the non-aggression principle. At that point, the respondents stated that they preferred that Johnson stick to pertinent issues, rather than “irrelevant water-cooler philosophy.” The questioner then appropriately mocked them as “statist scum,” resulting in them suggesting that “perhaps they should look at another candidate.”
