Quotes from 8 year New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson who balanced the budget there for 8 years:

I'm the only candidate wants to get out of Afghanistan now

You waste your vote if you vote for a candidate you don't believe in.

I'm the only candidate who doesn't want to bomb Iran.

I'm the only candidate who wants to balance the budget. (He is one of 4 governors who did so and he did for 8 years.)

I'm the only candidate who wants to repeal the Patriot Act



I'm the only candidate who wants to end the drug wars (which cost trillions of dollars, are family busters, and deny tax income to the states from nonworking prisoners)



We are not a shining city on the hill but the bullies of the world.



The only reason to invade any country is if we are attacked.



The Republican and Democratic candidates have raised 1 billion each... 2 billion dollars. I have been running a campaign on 2 million dollars.



Let's make the Federal Reserve transparent.



The other candidates want you to believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and the Easter bunny. (He went on to describe the financial crisis.)



I want to cut 43% from military spending which would bring the US back to the level it was in 2003.





Footnote:



Both Johnson and Romney vetoed a lot. Johnson vetoed 2000 times and was overridden 200 times. He was elected twice in a state which had 2 of 3 Democratic registrants. Romney vetoed 844 times and was overridden 707 times.



The ACLU gave Romney 0 liberty torches, Obama 22 and Johnson 25 of 28 liberty torches.
Since Johnson has never suppressed voters, he should have receved an even higher score.http://www.aclulibertywatch.org/ALWCandidateReportCard.pdf

Johnson is the only candidate who has climbed Mt Everest
