Constitutional Freedom and Candidates: an exchange

Me: Constitutional Freedom? I’m on board.
Can we reasonably expect Willard Romney to restore constitutional freedoms? Absolutely not. Why not? Dozens of reasons which include his apathy regarding the HHS Mandate and his support of the most recent NDAA.
What about Gary Johnson? That’s hardly a question worth asking because it is so explicitly answered by his platform. YES. If there is one candidate that you can confidently believe will restore liberty in America, it is Gary Johnson.

 

Dr. Narrow: Gary Johnson? Are you kidding me?
Pro-”choice” on abortion.
Pro gay marriage.
Pro drug legalization.
Pro prostitution legaliszation.

You may be able to argue that Gary Johnson is intellectually consistent.
But you can hardly make a Catholic case for supporting him.

 

Me: Can I believe one iota of the filth that comes from Romney’s mouth? No. He has the moral spine of a jellyfish and the integrity of a hyena. I may as well vote for a Mystery Dum-Dum Pop since have an equal understanding of what’s inside.

Is there a pro-life canidate? No.
A candidate with a proper definition of marriage? No.
Drug legalization is a policy issue that isn’t defined by Catholic morality, besides the fact that I can trust that Gary Johnson won’t treat an executive order like a shortcut to enacting legislation the Constitutional way, which means that only the drug policy that Congress passes will become law.
Bringing up prostitution makes it seem like your grasping at straws. It’s a state’s issue right now–pretty obvious since Nevada has their own laws–and Johnson doesn’t care to take that away from the States. And, again, it’s not as if Congress is going to even consider a law requiring all states to legalize prostitution.

You objections have been dismissed. As for making a “Catholic case” for him: the very fact that I may reasonably believe that he is intellectually consistent and cares for personal liberty and freedom, including religious freedom, while no other candidate does, is more than a strong case.
