Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson Talks Debt

Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson Talks Debt

Posted: Updated:
Former Libertarian Candidate for President and two time New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson was in Mobile Monday.

Johnson said he was bringing his message of fiscal conservatism and liberal civil liberties to the port city.  Johnson was scheduled for a meeting at 'The Bull' restaurant Monday evening.

Before that, he talked with host Sean Sullivan on his midday radio show at 106.5fm.  Johnson said he sees the most pressing issue facing the country is one everyone is talking about, but no one is doing anything about--the federal debt.

"and if we don't do something, we'll all be facing the greatest tax of all--runaway inflation where the dollars in our pockets won't buy anything."

Johnson said he is also concerned with another example of a runaway federal government.  That is, the number of federal agencies that now have their own armed police forces.  They include the Forest Service, the EPA, and NOAA.

Johnson related a story of seeing first hand armed agents from the U.S. Forest Service stage a saturation raid at a peaceful ski resort in the Taos Valley.  Among the infractions the agents began to enforce--writing a ticket to a man for not wearing a seat belt.
