From interview with the Daily Caller:
“I’m always the guy to advocate for lower ages. I just believe that the lower the age the better you come to grips with what these substances are,” the Libertarian Party presidential candidate said.Editor's note - A policy position that we've been pushing for here at LR for years. "Old enough to fight and die for your country; old enough to drink a beer."
“If you can go to Iraq and die, or Afghanistan and die as a service man or women at 18, and you can’t drink — I’m sorry I don’t buy into that.”
“Hypothetically no, there shouldn’t be [a drinking age],” Johnson said, “but the lower the age the better.”
Our view on Johnson's 3rd party run? If you live in a deeply red state, there's no harm in voting Libertarian. The more votes the Libertarian party receives, the more the Republican Party will be convinced to move in a more libertarian direction. Of course, ALL Libertarians who live in Virginia, Ohio, Florida, New Mexico, Colorado, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Oregon, ect... absolutely MUST! vote Mitt Romney!
