GARY JOHN­SON HOPES 2016 IS HIS OYS­TER

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

They are not just lib­er­tar­i­ans. Be­hold, it’s the Repub­li­can Lib­er­tar­ian Cau­cus, which has joined forces with Gary John­son to show vot­ers that the for­mer third-party pres­i­den­tial hope­ful is in­tent on re­main­ing, well, a third-party pres­i­den­tial hope­ful. The group has or­ga­nized a meet and greet that in­cludes se­lect seafood: Mr. John­son ap­pears later this month at the Lib­erty Kitchen & Oys­terette in Houston for a splashy lun­cheon, right along with Jim Gray, his 2012 run­ning mate. Both will be “shuck­ing shells and suck­ing down Rock­e­fellers with any­one and ev­ery­one who wants to live free,” ac­cord­ing to or­ga­niz­ers.

Yes, well. It is not a free event, but a thrifty one. Tick­ets range from $15$300 for fare that in­clude raw, fried or sauced Maine and Texas Gulf oys­ters; steamed clams and mus­sels plus shrimp, of course. The Repub­li­can Lib­er­tar­ian Cau­cus, in­ci­den­tally, in­cludes more than 500 lo­cal vol­un­teer or­ga­ni­za­tions in­tent on ad­vanc­ing “prin­ci­ples of in­di­vid­ual rights, lim­ited gov­ern­ment and free mar­kets” in the Grand Old Party.
