Meet Vice Presidential Candidate Judge Jim Gray

Earlier this evening I was able to meet and talk with libertarian vice presidential candidate Judge Jim Gray. The majority of his speech was focused on abolishing drug prohibition as I had figured it would be. He did touch on other subjects like the Department of Education, Department of Energy and Department of Commerce. I don’t feel the need to write about his stances on the departments because with these three departments libertarians seem to decide unanimously that they all should be shut down or at the least reformed tremendously.

The location where he spoke was a small art gallery in downtown Phoenix where one can find numerous small shops, galleries, restaurants and bars. Basically it’s a hipster and hippie alike, hangout part of town. I know this well considering I frequent a few bars in the area. A hippy chick artist was in the front of the gallery painting away with her dreadlocks pulled back. When I entered to see her and the small gallery I first thought that maybe I was in the wrong place. She confirmed with me that I wasn’t and that Jim Gray would be speaking in the back patio. I weaved my way through the gallery to find the back patio where the audio was being set up by other hippies. Needless to say this was the stereotypical location for someone to speak out against prohibition of drugs. I imagined if any neo-cons were to find out about this speech they surely smirk self righteously. (more…)

Gary Johnson At PAUL FESTIVAL 2012 Tampa, FLA

Two fellow liberty movement members and I travelled across country to attend the Paul Festival and Ron Paul rally in Tampa, FLA this year. It was a pleasant experience driving about 4,600 miles round trip. I feel proud to know there are no limits to my participation in the liberty movement.

Among other speakers at the Paul Festival was my candidate for president Gary Johnson. It was an absolute pleasure to record his speech and an even more powerful pleasure to meet him. I’m not one for bothering people I like so when I approached him I was attempting to simply quickly have a picture taken of us but Gary wanted more, he wanted to speak to me and everyone that approached him. Looking straight in my eyes and reaching out his hand it seemed as though he was giving me his undivided attention which forced me to speak more than I had originally planned. It was a pleasant meeting and further solidified my desire to vote for him in this coming 2012 presidential election. (more…)
