Since the announcement by the Johnson campaign that Bill Weld would be Gary's VP running mate controversy has been swirling. Some say Weld is an excellent choice who's going to have the connections to raise money and grab disenfranchised Republicans. Others say Weld is a poison on the message and isn't even libertarian.
Throughout the debates Gary Johnson has made some, shall I say "less than libertarian" comments on a range of topics and that has caused me to question what Johnson really believes.
With the decision to partner with Weld, I grew more skeptical of Johnson and what his real principles are. So I decide to dig into the background of Gov. Weld and see I could determine what drives his decisions, and he holds as first principles.
I've tried to be fair although I admit I came into this with some skepticism. What I found did not make me happy and in today's episode, I'm going to make a case against both Gov. Weld and Gov. Johnson. With this incredible opportunity, I think it is a bad idea to allow either of these men to represent the libertarian ideal to the masses.
