Bookmark: Items about Gov.  Johnson:

New Mexico Democratic Party Chairwoman Diane Denish's opinion that
lying to our citizens and our children is responsible, while telling
the truth is somehow malfeasance, provides us with a clear picture of
her character. Contrary to her bizarre beliefs, honesty continues to
be the best policy.

Whether one agrees with Gov. Gary Johnson or not, to hear an elected
official voice an honest opinion in the face of such overwhelming odds
is quite refreshing, to say the least.

It's time we faced up to the fact that America's drug policy is a
disaster by any measure and threatens the very foundations of our nation.

Congratulations, New Mexico - you've accomplished a darned near
impossible feat and elected an honest person as your governor. For
this I salute you.
