    Willie Nelson endorses Johnson for president

    Former Governor Gary Johnson has country's most famous pot smoker and marijuana advocate endorsing him as a presidential candidate.
    Despite my bashing of Republicans, there are a few of them that I would vote for. And Gary Johnson is one of them. He understands that the War on Drugs is a total flop. And Willie Nelson's Teapot Party has now endorsed him. Works for me. The problem with Democrats is that they are even more supportive of the War on Drugs than anybody else, which is one of the reasons I have never voted for one. If you don't buy that, then just look at Obama's threats against the soverignty of the state of California. This war needs to end ASAP, so we can start going after REAL criminals. And there are a few good Republicans who will do just that.

    Governor Veto is the pick of the litter.
    I'd consider voting for him, if he made it past the primary.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Consider. Willie Nelson has smoked half the marijuana ever grown, and yet he's not in jail.

    That's about all you need to know about the War on Drugs.

    He has no chance whatsoever.

    an uphill battle, to be sure
    but for me, he is the only potential candidate who would cause me not to cast a vote for Obama

    he is a younger, more palatable Ron Paul. and the young adults trend toward Ron Paul, even when he was running against Obama. Obama has sorely disappointed the youth vote (as well as many of his other supporters)
    this is a viable candidate

    but the republicans could be as stupid as the democrats were by anointing sure losers, john kerry, mike dukakis, walter mondale, george mcgovern and hubert humphrey

    which republican stands a better chance than Gary Johnson in the national election?

    he rebuffed the Libertarian party's appeal for him to be its candidate in a previous election

    but his stands take a definite libertarian lean

    I had never heard of Willie when I was introduced to his music in 1973 but I liked it.

    Then I actually met him in 1974 at a little thing called the Nacogdoches back Woods Beer Festival along with many other Country Music entertainers, and my response was he was funny clever and high as a kite, smoking a joint.

    When he did a radio interview years later about being in the Clinton White House and going out on the Balcony to smoke a joint I lost all respect for him.

    I know that a some of the Founding Fathers grew Pot but it was legal then, and that is different.
