Judge Andrew P. Napolitano, Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst, in a Thursday (12 July 2012) afternoon Freedom Fest presentation titled, “A Government of Waste and Lawlessness” made the following comments regarding Libertarian Presidential nominee Gary Johnson:
34:30: “I’m going to really go off script for a minute. . . .
There’s really no script; there’s just a note telling me I’m talking too long.
There is a person in this room, who I must invite to the attention of everyone, because he has the courage to stand in front of the establishment and say, “Enough is enough!”
Whether he wins or loses in his latest quest to set you free, he is a figure of historical significance and profound contemporary interest. He was once called, “Governor No!” when he said to the legislature of his state, “You are not going to interfere with commercial transactions that are voluntarily entered into.”
Maybe . . . who knows . . . after this campaign, or the next one, he might be in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Former New Mexico Governor, whose sandal straps I am unworthy to fasten, who will speak here tomorrow (sic) at 10:30, Governor Gary Johnson.
(Gary stands, applause.)
That’s what we should be doing. Challenging the establishment, reminding them that there is a Constitution and a Declaration of Independence that put restrictions on the government.”
(Governor Johnson is speaking tomorrow — Saturday July 14th 2012, at 10:30 am — two days after Judge Napolitano’s remarks above.)
IPR intends to BLOG Governor Johnson’s speech LIVE. (Live video and/or audio is not possible.)
