"Sen. Paul and I have some differences on issues, but he was the one candidate on the Republican side who was not afraid to talk about civil liberties, the perils of endless war, and the principles of liberty. His departure leaves a great many voters, especially among America's youth, without a home in the two major parties. To them, I say, come be Libertarian with me," Mr. Johnson says.
"I reach out to you, members of all political parties. I reach out to anyone with a vote and an ax to grind. From the tea party, the Constitution Party, the Green and Libertarian parties, I call out to all of you, including the disaffected and disillusioned among Republicans and Democrats," Mr. Johnson says in an edgy new campaign video.
