2012 Libertarian Presidential Nominee
Former Governor of New Mexico

Gary Johnson

Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson


Johnson position on Civil Liberties

True to his libertarian leanings, Johnson is a firm proponent of the individual rights and civil liberties of the citizens. Considering the fact that the first eight amendments of the Constitution deals with the issue directly, he wants the recent encroachment of government agencies into the lives of private citizens to be reeled back. He has spoken several times of his support in allowing the expiration of the Patriot Act at the end of May 2011 following a final 90-day extension given by the Congress in February.

On the equally explosive subject of gay rights, Johnson offers a qualified backing on the issue, supporting civil unions for gay couples but stopping short of marriage.
