Federal Reserve. Johnson supports for the Federal Reserve which Paul wants to abolish. In April, the Governor told Judge Andrew Napolitano it was not necessary to end the Federal Reserve, and the focus should instead be on balancing the budget. Johnson has since copied some of Paul’s anti-Fed rhetoric. However, as of today, he is still saying the Fed should not be abolished. He wants it to focus on price stability.
Budget. Johnson advocates a 43% cut in the federal budget and supports the GOP’s Ryan plan to cut the deficit by $6.2 trillion over a decade. Johnson says it is a good start, but Paul voted with the Democrats to kill the Ryan plan because he advocates larger reductions.
Cabinet. Johnson would not abolish cabinet departments for Agriculture and Commerce. He would abolish the Departments of Education and HUD. Paul would abolish all of them as well as the CIA, Labor and the Department of Homeland Security.
Gold Standard: Paul has written four books advocating a return to the gold standard. Johnson has issued one twitter message which vaguely promises to link the dollar to gold.
Foreign Policy. Johnson supports interventions for humanitarian purposes and to prevent genocide. He was in favor of the U.S. role in Bosnia and Kosovo, which Paul opposed.
Foreing Policy. Paul wants to end America’s collective security system. Johnson says “If there’s a clear genocide somewhere, don’t we really want to positively impact that kind of a situation? Isn’t that what we’re all about? Isn’t that what we’ve always been about?” Paul’s policy is non-intervention everywhere, no matter how compelling the cause.
War on Drugs: They both want to end the Drug War. Johnson, 58, has admitted smoking marijuana since he left the Governorship in 2002. Paul, 75, would allow all dangerous drugs to be legal if that policy was approved by a state government.
Mislim da nema bolje indikacije ko je pravi libertarijanski kandidat od toga koga od njih neokon etatista smatra većim i gorim "ekstremistom". Dakle, gori od njih hoće da uništi sva sjajna dostignuća progresivne ere, Njudila i "Velikog društva", od centralne banke, preko prohibicije svihh droga, slavnog sistema "kolektivne bezbednsoti" preojektovanog od Vilsona i Ruzvelta, i dve trećine federalne vlade! Sve oko čega postoji konsenzus između levih i desnih kolektivista u Americi. Da uništi "sve što smo postigli" u 20 veku. Da, baš tako.
