    I've got one of his bumper stickers.

    "Gary Johnson: We have Brownies"

    He was an awesome governor for New Mexico, vetoed something like 700 spending and tax bills. He simply has no clue how to run a national campaign. Does seem odd that a Libertarian would want to accept tax money for anything!

    I'm certain INGO members will be by very shortly to denounce this political insider for attempting to suck off the public teat.

    Shouldn't the headline read: "Money returned to Johnson, public to fund public debate"

    You haven't gone full wookie, have you Kirk? You never go full wookie. Surely you haven't adopted a pure ancap, outside the system activism approach where using publicly available resources is an endorsement of the system.

    Yeah, yeah...just trolling Libertarians...I get it.

    Why? Was it his in the first place? I thought some of it was MINE. Some probably came from you, your neighbors, and many others. How could money extracted from US be "returned to Johnson?"

    Saw the comma, also saw that "public to fund public debate" stands as an independent clause in the sentence. Consequently, I stand by my prior question.
