Gary Johnson vs. Evan McMullin

Gary Johnson vs. Evan McMullin

I’ve had a lot of people asking me about Evan McMullin recently. Viewing both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as unacceptable choices for president, it’s been widely known that I’m voting for Gary Johnson. Suddenly this McMullin guy burst onto the scene with his campaign readily acknowledging that McMullin’s only path to the White House lay in the very scenario I lay out in my book. I want to cover two things here. Why I support Governor Gary Johnson over Evan McMullin. How McMullin has run a better campaign down the stretch.  Why do I still support Gary Johnson over Evan McMullin? Gary Johnson and his running mate Bill Weld are two former two term governors. They have executive experience. They have actually governed. To me, McMullin looks more like the guy you want as Chief of Staff or National Security Advisor than President of the United States. There’s a bigger reason, though, that I support Gary Johnson over Evan McMullin. McMullin is clearly a Republican. If you’re an establishment Republican who loved the candidacies of Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney, then McMullin looks pretty good to you. But I think we need something other than a Republican or a Democrat. As a life-long Republican and political observer, for me, this is a strong case for Gary Johnson. Our two party system is broken. If Hillary Clinton is elected president, all Republicans will neatly line up against her. If Donald Trump is elected president, all Democrats will neatly line up against him. Presidential candidates are constantly touting their ability to reach across the aisle but it never...

Why Abraham Lincoln would tell Gary Johnson to grow a beard

Abraham Lincoln became president by building new alliances. His winning coalition allowed the Republican Party to win the presidency only six years after its’ formation. Gary Johnson needs to take a page out of Lincoln’s playbook. He needs to grow a beard.
