Surge at the right time.
Gaining momentum at just the right time is a polished skill of champions. In markets, politics and sports, leaders plan their best stride. Olympic athletes know this well. This is peak perfomance.
Gary Johnson is surging at the right time. His campaign is findings its stride. And it is significant.
Their recent “Money Bomb” clearly demonstrates that the grassroots movement for change is alive and well. The loudest voices are those unhappy with the current power structures and that voice will not be silenced. It is the reason so many follow Trump and Bernie. It is also the reason Gary Johnson can win.
Bernie Sander’s offered a message of social justice which resonated with the millennials and their Generation 1099 siblings. Bernie supporters rightly called for human rights and economic re-distribution. When Bernie supporters seek the heart of the Libertarian values, they will hear economic liberty and social conscience. Listen to the words of Bill Weld, Gary Johnson’s running mate.
"I suggest to you that increasing the size of America’s economic pie - which can be achieved only if everybody has a seat at the table - is the most important challenge facing our country today."
– Governor Bill Weld
When the multitude of disenfranchised Republican voters learn more about Johnson, they too will find a home. Abandon by the Republican Party, by which they stood for decades even while their values were misrepresented, Conservatives will hear the voice Reagan…
If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism… The basis of conservatism is a desire for less government interference or less centralized authority or more individual freedom and this is a pretty general description also of what libertarianism is.”
-President Ronald Reagan
Many voters will now start to hear about a viable third party option. Though few will agree on all points, many will find that unity and compromise is better for our families and communities than the hate and division delivered to us by both Republican’s and Democrat’s. Reasonable voices will begin to prevail. And a collaborative message of social liberty and economic opportunity will arise.
Conversations will change. There will be talk about closing prisons to save money. Freeing the minor drug offenders. Legalization of Marijuana. Getting Government out of matrimony. Significant tax reform. Improving education through increased local control. And taking real strides to reducing our nation’s debt.
The narrative can change, the tone can change. Conversations can focus on strengthening communities through personal responsibility. More government transparency and term limits. Yes, term limits.
The General election is a few short months away. Hillary is currently winning in the polls primarily because Trump is beating himself. Gary Johnson needs to get to 15% to be on stage at the Presidential debates. He is up against a Presidential Debate committee which is largely controlled by the Republican’s and Democrats. However, if he can overcome their arbitrary rules, then all bets are off.
Gary Johnson is surging at the right time. The grassroots support is growing at an increasingly faster rate. The new financial resources will provide much needed exposure. Media outlets will now give more attention to Gary Johnson because demand is growing.
Gary Johnson is the showing his ability to compete on a national stage and carries a message with which the multitudes can agree,
“We need to make America sane again”
