Ron Paul says “we don’t need a third party,” refuses to endorse any candidate for president this year

Ron Paul will celebrate his 81st birthday on August 20th

Ron Paul, the 1988 Libertarian Party presidential nominee, 2008 and 2012 GOP presidential candidate and former twelve-term Texas congressman, spoke to 400 student activists at the Young Americans for Liberty conference in Washington, D.C. in late July. Interestingly, as DailyCaller.com and LewRockwell.com report, Ron Paul refused to endorse Gary Johnson for president, much less even mention the Libertarian Party throughout his 45-minute speech to a passionate audience. DailyCaller.com quotes Paul as saying:

“We don’t need a third party, we need at least a second party that will challenge [the] system.” 

According to both websites, Ron Paul said that the two major parties were two sides of the same coin and said.

LewRockwell.com goes on to recommend an article titled “Libertarians for Gary Johnson? 5 reasons libertarians can’t support Johnson,” written by Andrew Moran and published on July 22nd, 2016.

Wikipedia continues, as of today, to erroneously list Ron Paul on its list of endorsements for Gary Johnson.

  1. Shock me. Ron Paul’s butt-hurt that the LP didn’t nominate his particular type of libertarian.

    That said, at least four years ago, Johnson wasn’t all sweetness and light himself: https://www.nsfwcorp.com/dispatch/gary-johnson-swindle/

    I’d say that Ron Paul has good reasons to not promote Gary Johnson. Most of them dealing with Gary Johnson’s inconsistent positions on foreign military polity and his other deviations from pro-liberty policies. Support is earned by words and deeds, not simply by capturing the nomination of the Libertarian Party delegates at convention.

  3. Rest assured that the real reason that Ron Paul did not endorse Gary Johnson is William Weld. Real Libertarians like Ron Paul will not support CFR frauds like Weld.

  4. You should rewrite the headline, it’s misleading and sounds negative towards third parties.
