Third Party Candidate Calls Out Romney, Obama

Posted: Updated:

Third Party candidates were not included in the presidential debate, but they are speaking up, nonetheless. The former Governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson and his Vice Presidential candidate Judge Jim Gray are running on the Libertarian ticket.

Gray said both Romney and President Obama continue to show they are not working for America, but for themselves.

"They're spending hundreds of millions of dollars on this television station and elsewhere. They're not talking about their background because they can't talk about their record or ideas. All they say is how inept the other one is. Honestly, we agree with both of them."

Gray said unlike his opponents, he and Johnson would submit a balanced budget to Congress by 2013.

He said they are part of the only party that is financially responsible and socially tolerant.

If elected, Gray said they would repeal the Patriotic Act and reduce the size of federal government.

He also said they would bail out Social Security and make sure every senior gets what was promised.

Like most candidates, Gray said this election is about jobs. He said he will stimulate growth by removing an income tax altogether.

"You can look back at ancient Rome. Their empire was never conquered from without, they over extended and collapsed from within. Same thing with the Ottoman empire, the Soviet empire. Guess where they are today? We got to get our financial house in order."
