A Time For Choosing Gary Johnson & Hillary Clinton Are Running on the Same Platform

ELDER PATRIOT – This November Americans will be making a decision whether to remain a sovereign country where they maintain the right to self-determination or if they will cede control of their collective destinies to a small group of elites through the acceptance of international trade agreements that are anything but free.  These deals are so threatening to our personal freedoms that our elected representatives were given only limited access to review them and absent permission to even take notes that they may take back to their constituents.

Hillary Clinton makes no bones about her support of the international banking community, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP,) and of her support for continuing and increasing President Obama’s illegal immigration onslaught.

Donald Trump defeated sixteen Republican challengers and has risen into a tie with Mrs. Clinton by making his opposition to all three of these issues the cornerstone of his campaign.  Trump alone commanded the narrative on these issues that every other politician, from both sides of the aisle, refused to discuss.

With recent polls indicating that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are splitting 80% of the vote it’s important to examine whom the remaining twenty percent of the voters support?  These are the voters who may eventually decide the election.

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson is currently garnering the support of 12% of the electorate.  It is highly unlikely that Johnson will realize that level of support in this year’s election.  Running in 2012, Johnson received 0.99% of the overall vote and only once in its 44-year history has the Libertarian candidate for president been able to surpass 1% of the vote.  That was way back in 1980 when Ed Clark got an inconsequential 1.06% of the overall vote.

With the stakes so high this year it is not likely that when crunch time comes voters will opt to make a “statement” vote.  So here’s what they need to know about Gary Johnson’s views on curtailing illegal immigration and the international trade deals that have provisions hidden in them that undermine America’s sovereignty.

Johnson explains in his own words his rabid and emotional support for continued illegal immigration:

Johnson also agrees with his running mate William Weld who states their commitment to NAFTA and TPP in no uncertain terms:

Wow!  You may be asking yourself how can Johnson have 12% of the overall vote when he sounds so much like Hillary Clinton?  It’s because voters who aren’t paying attention don’t yet realize that Johnson’s support is coming from the same donor base that is desperate to see Mrs. Clinton elected.  He is only in the race to strip votes from Donald Trump.

This is supported by the following chart developed from data available from Open Secrets, a website that tracks political contributions.


Contributions are pouring in to Clinton and Johnson from the rich and elite.  Clinton, of course, is the darling of these globalists and fully 63% of the money contributed to her campaign is coming from those wishing to reserve their place at the government trough for the next four years.

Amazingly, Johnson who claims to be a Libertarian receives the next highest percentage of his campaign kitty from these same people who view his candidacy as a means to undermining Trump.

Barely 15% of the money Donald Trump has raised has come from large contributors.  Of all the large contributions made to date to the four candidates for president Trump has received less than 9% of the total.

It’s clear whom the elites want to win this election.  It’s just as clear that they fear a Trump presidency. 

Many years ago the great Ronald Reagan gave a speech called “A Time For Choosing.”  It’s as though he was commenting on today’s political landscape.

This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capitol can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.”

At the conclusion of his speech Reagan made it clear that he understood the ramifications of making the wrong decision when he warned:

“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.


”We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”

Hopefully, the voters will realize what is at stake before casting their votes.
