My opinion of the Libertarian Party just improved. Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson says he’d sign an executive order eliminating America’s National Security Agency if he wins the 2016 election. And he’s also forcefully arguing that domestic surveillance of internet activity and phone calls in the United States is worse than in China.
Johnson also wants to abolish the Internal Revenue Service, replacing both income taxes and corporate taxes with a single federal consumption tax, and says he’d be willing to sign legislation eliminating the Department of Education, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the Department of Commerce, which he says fuels “crony capitalism.”
