Gary Johnson criticizes both Obama and Romney for lack of plan to cut spending

Presidential candidate Gary Johnson released an internet advertisement this week that casts himself as a handyman that can fix America. Johnson hopes to strike a chord with independent thinkers who believe the two party system is broken.

Johnson is also making a big push to attract Ron Paul supporters who cannot bring themselves to endorse Mitt Romney because they believe he has presided over a corrupt campaign.

“Both the Republicans and the Democrats are arguing about who’s going to spend more on Medicare,” he said. “The debate should be about slashing Medicare.”

Johnson proposes slashing Medicaid and the military budget, as well, by 43 percent. That may sound extreme, but it would just bring us back to 2003 levels, he said. And if we don’t go back, we’re going down.

“If we don’t address this, we are going to suffer a monetary collapse,” Johnson warns.

“Ryan’s talking about achieving a balanced budget in 28 years,” he reminds NJ.com.

“Everyone in the country recognizes we’re in deep doo-doo and if we have Romney or Obama it’s not going to get fixed,” he said. “I think what they’re offering up is the notion that Santa Claus is alive and well, the Easter Bunny exists and there is a tooth fairy.”

Gary Johnson was one of the most successful governors in the history of the United States. He is offering a modern conservative platform that is fiscally conservative, non-interventionist, and socially tolerant. He is billing it as the future, and it may very well be.
