Gary Johnson and Bill Weld are Featured on ’60 Minutes’

“60 Minutes” interviewed the Libertarian presidential candidates regarding the upcoming debates, their platform, and what it means to be a Libertarian.

Although Gary Johnson didn’t meet the threshold to make the first debate, he believes he still has a chance of getting into the other debates and winning the presidential race.

He jokingly said Mickey Mouse would have 30% in the polls because he’s a house-hold name.

Johnson believes he’s polling this high due to the choices Americans are given this election cycle.

“The two-party system is a dinosaur,” stated Johnson.

He thinks the American duopoly has been in place for too long, but he also believes his ideology makes sense.

Libertarians stand for freedom, liberty, and prosperity.

A broad generalization of the Libertarian Party is that they are fiscally conservative and socially liberal.

They are advocates of free market capitalism and remain pro-choice, against the war on drugs, and for reforming entitlement programs like Medicare and Medicaid.

Bill Weld, his Vice Presidential pick, also ran as a Republican in a blue state.

Both of them reduced taxes by limiting the size of government.

On their website, they have a step-by-step process of how you can help Gary appear in the debates.
