The Brilliant Strategy of Gary Johnson and Ron Paul

Gary Johnson, former Republican governor of New Mexico from 1995 to 2003, has an exemplary record during his time in office.

No scandal, no taint, or no rational criticism of his time as governor exists. He’s fit, he’s intelligent, he has executive experience, but as a Republican candidate for presidency, he could not even get on the TV debates, despite having more executive experience in office than every other candidate for the Republican nomination except Rick Perry. Mitt Romney served only one term as governor. Ron Paul, Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, and Newt Gingrich all served in Congress, but that’s not executive experience or decision-making.

Gov. Rick Perry has executive experience but his record is the polar opposite of Johnson’s. Perry has put over 1,000 people who contributed to his campaigns in various offices of the government, selling Texas governance to the highest bidders, literally. Perry is corrupt to the core. As far as I read, I have never seen even the suggestion that Gary Johnson made one corrupt decision, ever, in all eight years.

But Johnson wants to legalize marijuana, cut federal spending 43%, and end the Drug War, among other rational positions.

So the Republican establishment squeezed him out, allowing a one-percenter like Jon Huntsman in the debates instead. Huntsman represents the 1% because they are his supporters in Iowa and nationally as well. Also, his daddy is colossally rich and is the almost-exclusive financier of Jon-Boy’s campaign.

So Johnson has astutely launched a run as the Libertarian candidate this November. Johnson decided that if Ron Paul doesn’t get the Republican nomination, then there will be someone on the ballot in all 50 states who advocates ending marijuana prohibition, ending the wars, cutting federal government spending by 43%, and introducing a flat tax. The Libertarian Party has ballot-status or will in all 50 states. Johnson can probably count on funding by independents, Paul people and Democrat agent provocateurs.

Unless Ron Paul wins the Republican nomination, the Republicans can’t win. Most Paul supporters will vote for Johnson in November if they are faced with a Romney/Gingrich/Bachmann/Santorum robot as the Republican candidate.

The Republicans are now panicking. The left-wing media (such as it is, say the New York Times), and especially the rabid right-wing media (CNN and Fox News), along with the Republican establishment, is realizing that the only person who can win next November is Paul as the Republican nominee! Most conservatives will still vote for Paul, as will many independents and disillusioned Democrats.

If Paul gets the Republican nomination, Johnson will do the right thing, support Paul, and withdraw. Johnson would make the perfect vice-presidential running mate to Paul, which is the ideal Republican ticket to me. Ron Paul and Mitt Romney are tied in polls for the candidate best able to beat Barack Obama.

But if the Republican candidate isn’t Paul, the Republicans simply cannot win. And that is driving the media and the Republican establishment bat-shit crazy.

Paul will win the IOWA caucus. He’ll be a strong second in New Hampshire. This Republican nomination will be contested right through to California on June 5th, and I’m sure it will be a see-saw battle between Romney and Paul for the most part.

Paul will pardon all non-violent drug offenders in federal prisons. He will pardon the millions of Americans who have drug offenses on their federal criminal records. He does not need Congressional approval to do this. As Commander in Chief, he will begin the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Germany, Korea, Japan, and all the outposts around the world. He will get out of Afghanistan. He will greatly change the CIA and NSA. He will abolish the DEA whenever possible. He will stop giving tax money to Mexico and Colombia to wage their murderous drug wars. He will repeal the Patriot Act. He will veto any Congressional bill that he deems unconstitutional. He will end the Transportation Safety Authority (TSA). He will cut one trillion dollars from the U.S. federal budget, eliminating five departments. He will immediately permit all states with medical marijuana laws to enact them without obstruction from the federal government.

Make 2012 the year Ron Paul changed America after 50 years of terrible mismanagement. I beg you to get involved with the Paul campaign in your state. If Paul becomes president, every marijuana prisoner in U.S. federal prisons, myself included, will be freed and pardoned, allowed to start our lives once again, in a world without prohibition. For once Paul ends federal prohibition in the U.S., it will fall in Mexico, Canada, and Europe shortly afterward.

The fate of the Free World really does rest on our culture’s decision to get actively involved with the Ron Paul campaign. Wherever you are, you can pitch in and help.

As of today I have 924 days left in my sentence in federal prison. If Ron Paul becomes president, it will be half that exactly: by March 2013 I would receive a pardon that he would issue to all marijuana offenders in federal prisons. I am one of tens of thousands whose lives would be impacted, and millions of Americans would have their criminal convictions for drug offenses expunged.

If you consider yourself an activist for the cannabis culture, any indifference or failure to act at this crucial time in America’s history is tantamount to betrayal. I do not choose that word lightly.

Ron Paul in 2012. To end the prohibition around the world. This year. Register Republican to vote for Paul in the primary in your state. Join his campaign RIGHT NOW. Give money to his campaign. Actively talk him up.

The Mayan calendar suggests that great change will come by December 2012. The greatest thing we could do for mankind is reduce drastically the chances of war by reducing the American Imperial Empire, and to end prohibition worldwide. That can happen by what we, as a culture, in concert with the rest of America, do in the next 11 months.

Marc Emery is the founder of the B.C. Marijuana Party and former publisher of Cannabis Culture. He is currently serving a 5-year prison term in a U.S. federal penitentiary for selling marijuana seeds and using the money to fund cannabis activism in Canada, the U.S., and around the world.

    In politics, there always has to be a good guy, otherwise there would be a revolt overnight.
    Everyone has a certain role they must play. Good guys are put there as an aphrodisiac for
    the masses. In America or Canada, it is not hardcore oppressive to its people like other
    countries of the world. The illusion of freedom is the platform used to manipulate the people.

    Never underestimate the cunning and cleverness of the conscienceless corporate oligarchy. Never underestimate the corporate rulers who finance politicians into power. Never underestimate the allegiance of their heirs and offspring to fulfilling the one world government agenda.

    Over the centuries, the corporate oligarchy have lied, cheated, looted, polluted, slaughtered, tortured, conquered, enslaved and impoverished. They have masterminded and financed both sides of every war, every revolution and every movement.

    Ron Paul was one of Ronald Reagan earliest supporters.

    Ron Paul is a tool of the Illuminati. Don’t tell me you didn’t know that. The Illuminati ALWAYS control both sides of the coin. It’s called Hegelian dialectic. We don’t need leaders we need people bringing truth forward. Be your own leader! How sad how ron paul has been promoted in the controlled media as the solution, he is praised like a god! connect the dots people, 0BAMA TRICKED THE PUBLIC INTO VOTING FOR HIM BY SAYING THE WAR ON DRUGS IS AN UTTER FAILURE, HE DIDNT DO SHIT…

    “It doesn’t matter who the people voted for; they always vote for us” – Joseph Stalin, Illuminati –




    The government repeals other laws, there are plenty of laws to repeal because they do more damage than the reasoning for the law. Repealing makes a law null and void. Please share the information. Why won’t Ron Paul embrace truth if he is truly for the people?

    Medical marijuana is a scam because it limits the public’s access to this harmless medicine that saves lives, ensuring people pay high prices and the public are limited in their access to this harmless plant. The government tests hemp fields for THC as if it were dangerous to make sure people aren’t growing hemp with THC who aren’t allowed, this is where disinformation causes more waste of time and energy. Hemp seeds with THC can’t get you “high.”

    Why won’t Ron Paul repeal the unconstitutional laws? Instead he promotes legalization.

    We need repeal of an unconstitutional law that has filled our prisons with nonviolent cannabis users. The prohibition against marijuana was unconstitutional from its inception. Why is legalizing and limiting our ability to grow Hemp more popular than repealing the law to make it null and void so we are free to grow as many plants as we want?

    Definition of DISINFORMATION: false information deliberately and often covertly spread (as by the planting of rumors) in order to influence public opinion or obscure the truth

    Examples of DISINFORMATION

    The government used disinformation to gain support for the policy.

    The word “hemp” has been in the English language for over 800 years. The word “marijuana” is only 100 years old.

    PLENTY OF EXAMPLES laws get repealed…WHY NOT REPEAL THE DRUG LAWS WHICH MEANS NO MORE WAR ON DRUGS. the war on drugs WONT GO AWAY WITH LEGALIZATION. MARK MY WORDS. There will still be a war on drugs except it will be going after people growing more than the amount allowed by the government. repeal the laws we are free, its that simple…its why controlled media wont talk about repealing the drug laws!

    When a law has been repealed, it means “to rescind or annul by authoritative act”.

    In other words, that law is no longer a law.

    “No date has yet been scheduled for the vote on legislation to repeal New Hampshire’s same-sex marriage law, but the state House of Representatives will likely take up the matter in mid-January, soon after the Jan. 10 primary, lawmakers said last week.”
    “Tennesseans will be required to have photo identification in order to vote and state employers will have to make sure their employees are legally authorised to work in the United States under new laws that took effect January 1.

    The photo ID measure has stirred debate, with critics saying the requirements to comply with the law are excessive and confusing, and could actually deter people from voting.

    “You have to have a specific government issued ID in order to vote, and that will disenfranchise a certain number of Tennesseans who don’t have that kind of specific ID,” said Mary Mancini, executive director of Tennessee Citizen Action, a public-interest and consumer-advocacy organisation.

    The group has launched a petition drive that supports proposed legislation to repeal the law. About a week ago, the Justice Department rejected a similar law in South Carolina, saying it made it harder for minorities to cast ballots. It was the first voter-ID law to be refused by the federal agency in nearly 20 years.”

    “The Edmonton Public School Board is asking the province to repeal a controversial section of the Alberta Human Rights Act.”


    instead controlled opposition promote legalization (limiting your ability to a harmless plant)

    Ron Paul is a non-starter as a Libertarian or as a Republican. The Republican base loves Ron Paul because he is pro-life. The Libertarians love him because he advocates the my-body-my-choice concept when it comes to cannabis use.
    Both conservative Republicans and Libertarians love Ron Paul because he wants to cut bloated government. The military-industrial complex hates him because he wants to withdraw U.S. forces from around the globe. Pro-choice women will NOT vote for Ron Paul. My body, my choice, period. That goes for abortion rights, too.

    Gary Johnson could be doing so much better if the Republicans would have let him in the debates. Problem is Gary Johnson actually would have a decent chance of getting elected as a Republican, and the Republican establishment doesn’t want him as a factor. Gary Johnson doesn’t have a prayer of getting elected president as a Libertarian. The money just isn’t there to run the campaign necessary.

    Pastor Harper and his deluded gang of ignorant, mercenary raptureista thugs don’t give a shit about right and wrong or good and bad. They’re on a program of cementing their political power and getting heavy on so-called “law and order” gets votes from the equally ignorant.

    What their absurd and draconian policies actually do is cause irreparable harm to pot users and their families and the rest of society. They consider this a good thing because they mistakenly believe that their God has revealed to them that He will be pleased for Canadians to be punished more severely for their sins against Pastor Harper’s God and His Bible.

    What is required for people to come together consciously for their own benefit. Ano Ano: The Seed–The Classic Trilogy by Kristen Zambucka enlightens the audience to the core wisdoms of Hawaiian Spiritual Traditions. The title is quite fitting for the circumstance of present and the forum for the discussion as the consequence of a citizens incarceration for providing the greatest wisdom for increasing joy and comfort during the passage of birth old age sickness and death will be embraced within an appropriate consequence in time.

    Hence a great consideration to understand our collective situation is of the highest priority. Marc Scott Emery brings the wisdom of the seed. Jesse Ventura provides the clarity of the unlawful biological war used against North America in the Plum Island Conspiracy via TRUtv along with the Independent movie “Under Our Skin” showing the horrors and criminal results of this very sophisticated organic weapon empowered by the Marijuana prohibition.

    Thus the question of personal self respect and positions of response are forced upon collective society who choose to fight for any intelligent right to life.

    Hi Erin & chris, thanks for sending me the comments on

    This Jake Witmer’s comments are interesting and I enjoyed reading them. You can give me his address & email and I’ll correspond directly with him, let him know how corrlinks works, and I’ll begin a conversation with him.

    His criticism of Johnson is not enough to really disapprove of Johnson though. The Objectivist Standard, a magazine I subscribe to, had a very lengthy interview with Johnson, and I agree with every statement Johnson made in that interview. I like the guy. I think he’s very consistent over the 10 years I’ve known him (met him in 2002).



    Ron Paul is the opportunity now. By June we will know the outcome of the Republican race. If Paul is the nominee, Johnson & LP will surely support Ron Paul. If Paul is not the nominee, I heartily endorse Gary Johnson for LP candidate, if Ron Paul declines to be the LP candidate.

    I like to think I’m well versed on the viable political entities in America but I have NEVER heard of or encountered RJ Harris, so he is eliminated from my consideration immediately. He is not a viable political figure. While I would enjoy learning more about him, he cannot be considered a superior vehicle for liberty over Johnson this year.

    Marc 1/1/2012 6:34:33 PM

    Also, when Jake admits that as Governor, Gary Johnson performed over two terms better than any other governor, that is extraordinary praise. To then support an untested by high elected office a virtual unknown like RJ Harris for the Presidential ticket of the Libertarian Party is ludicrous. Johnson has been tested as articulate, well rehearsed, available, has admirable executive experience. I get 30 magazines (political, objectivist, current events) weekly/monthly and I’ve never heard of RJ Harris!

    RJ Harris simply has a lot more work to do to make himself a viable political franchise to justify a Presidential ambition.

    Marc 1/1/2012 6:48:43 PM

    If more comments show up about this piece, cut & paste them to me.

    Can you forward me info on this RJ Harris? No one has a political carrer if they use initials. I’m voting “RJ” -I think not. So no candidate is electable until he’s using real names. Ever heard of anyone famous politically who uses initials as their first name?

    politics and marijuana dont mix well.Recently,someone named Obama promised to soften the laws.Instead,we recently witnessed federal raids on dispensaries in California. Obama is nothing else in my eyes than a LIAR.And politicians are lying a lot these days.Canadians have asked the federal government several times to also soften and decriminalize marijuana.Instead all they got is a hardening of politics and bill C-10.Again the elected politicians negate all progress thats been made toward decriminalization and dont take into account the recommendations of the LeDain commission report and the more recent Senate committe report on marijuana.People have repeatedly asked to stop this stupid war on marijuana and instead weve got ministers like Nicholson threatening on new years eve the pot growers of Canada.To think that other politicians will really do something is very naive.Once they get elected they show their real face: the Obama’s face of deception.Hard laws are passed without any problems all the time but when it comes to do something about marijuana,always something in the way.The real hypocrisy is making people belive that they will decriminalize or legalize…all this furthest from the truth.The 9/11 provided the needed excuse to extend police forces to all spheres of society and crack down on marijuana users even stronger.So be it anyone all politicians are only concerned of getting votes to be elected and after that they come hard on marijuana users.The liberals in Canada promise once again to do something about marijuana,to renw their electoral platform but again all of this is pure talk talk talk and no action from liberals when it is time to act.

    Dear Marc,

    I agree with almost everything you write. I love your positive mindset, and your energetic defense of justice, reason, logic, and emergent order. You have what I consider to be a beautiful mind.

    However, I think you may be wrong about Gary Johnson. I initially supported Johnson, and encouraged him to run as LP. Now, I think that might be a mistake.

    First: Johnson pardoned only two drug offenders in NM, when he was governor. He said to Free Talk Live that he wished he pardoned more. But why didn’t he? He had the power to, and he didn’t. His claims of being libertarian do not match reality.

    Was he better than every other governor? Yes. Is he the best choice for Libertarian “standard bearer?” …No.

    The LP standard bearer must be a supporter of Ron Paul. Yet, the Ron Paul campaign is bitterly against Gary Johnson, for the fact that he initially encouraged people to vote for himself, and not Paul. Had he polled above 2%, he would now be running against Paul, in the year of Paul. The positive thinker’s tendency against infighting seems to be leading you to the conclusion that GJ is the best candidate for LP candidate.

    However, there are many problems with Gary Johnson’s tendency to vacillate and deviate from libertarianism. Though better than every other governor in his terms as NM governor, he is not a consistent libertarian. Although I understand arguments against “the perfect being the enemy of the good” I cannot support Johnson over RJ Harris.

    Harris supports the jury over the politician. He supports civil disobedience, and nonviolent action. He does this in a deep and intellectual way, and he is learning more every day.

    Contrast this with Gary Johnson, who rudely dismissed the foreign noninterventionism arguments of Amanda Trbovich (sp?), before he realized she was influential.

    Gary is a politician. He operates with a crude sense of what is right and wrong, with his finger to the wind. He claims “Atlas Shrugged” as his primary influence, but he also seems to not understand its content.

    He contradicts himself on numerous issues, and holds contradictory opinions on those issues at different dates.

    He seems like a genuinely nice guy, but he also defers to Ron Nielson, his campaign director, 100% of the time.

    While this makes him a good candidate in many way, it also makes him inept in the ways that Nielsen is inept. He fails to reach out, he fails to respond to legitimate criticism. His campaign is a “black box.”

    Also: he will not get the groundswell of support from the Ron Paul rEVOLution.

    I believe that RJ Harris will get this sort of groundswell, because he has been a tireless promoter of Ron Paul. As Paul’s numbers decline, because the statists behind Santorum, Bachmann, and Gingrich merge together behind one of the plastic sociopath candidates, Paul will lose the GOP nomination. (I pray I am wrong on this.)

    When that happens, we need someone who wants the presidency to be inferior to the Jury.

    There is a lot to recommend Gary Johnson as a marijuana legalization proponent. But he only contacted RMLW after I suggested to Ron Nielson that he do so.

    Ideally, Johnson will figure out that he needs to read a lot more Harry Browne, Ayn Rand, G Edward Griffin, Murray Rothbard, Jacob Sullum, Radley Balko, Marc Stevens, and others, before he has the level of consistency necessary to truly threaten the war machine. Ideally, he will also figure out that he can make millions of dollars placing initiatives on the ballot to overturn marijuana prohibition in the 23 viable initiative states.

    I don’t want Gary Johnson to fail. I like Gary Johnson.

    But I don’t want him to be the LP nominee in 2012, as his policy positions currently stand.

    1) He can either start opposing foreign interventionism, NYC’s calorie labeling laws, GITMO, the Fed, and “voir dire” and wrongful judicial instruction.


    3) He can lose to RJ Harris or Ron Paul at the LP nominating convention in May, in Las Vegas.

    Call me for further discussion.


    Jake Witmer

    Prior posts:

    Ron Paul is the only choice that should be voted for in 2012’s GOP primary, for these 3 reasons:
    1) He is the only candidate who doesn’t want us all to work for the Federal Reserve

    2) He is the only candidate who recognizes the perverse incentive toward Reserve bankers profiting from war

    3) He understands that allowing competing currencies and championing jury nullification is a peaceful, gradual way away from the path we are on.

    If Paul doesn’t get the GOP nomination, I’m voting for Libertarian RJ Harris.

    Initially, I supported Johnson. However, I’ve been forced by the data to reconsider:
    1) Johnson, on his recent appearance on “Redeye” (guest-hosted) stated his support for the NYC law that requires the calorie count to be posted on all menus. This is both a violation of individual rights, and practically, an inefficient and prohibitive barrier to entry into the marketplace. It also heaps unconstitutional power on bureaucrats, who will then write more tickets, and circumvent more due process and jury trials.
    2) Johnson does not oppose the Federal Reserve, and thus does not oppose human slavery, on principle.
    3) Johnson does not favor closing GITMO, a US-taxpayer financed extra-judicial torture camp, on communist soil. Think about it. (He also insulted my intelligence on TV by claiming that there were libertarian grounds for such a belief because one of his advisors said there was. THINK FOR YOURSELF, GARY!)
    4) He favors “The Fair Tax,” which occupies the same moral highground currently occupied by “The Fair Rape” and “The Fair Theft.”
    5) He seems oblivious to jury nullification of law, and state nullification of law. This lack of knowledge is abhorent, and it would make him the 2nd LP candidate in a row to be similarly-ignorant of the core promise of libertarianism: to directly put an end to unjust punishment.
    6) He was governor, and issued TWO pardons for drug offenses. While governor, he DID NOT use the full power of his office as a constitutional bulwark against the system.
    He did many good things, and he was better than every other governor, and I really wanted to support him. But if I am honest with myself, he is not the candidate I seek. Moreover, he cannot win the allegiance of the Ron Paul revolution by acting as he has recently been acting. Thus, he will drive the Revolution to the often-theocratic “Constitution Party.” I don’t favor such as result.

    Gary is a likeable person. …But he is not the philosopher that Paul is (and Paul is not the philosopher that Molyneux, Stevens, or Browne was).

    That said, Paul is the man to vote for, as are his delegates. Ron Paul is the real deal, as far as 2012 is concerned. Any candidate striving for individual liberty must first acknowledge the moral high ground that Paul occupies.

    Did Johnson ever say he’d pardon Bernard von Nothaus? PAUL would, and RJ HARRIS would.

    …End of argument.


    Moreover, the Johnson campaign is fairly opaque, and lacks strategic intelligence. It is overly-cautious, slow to act, and indecisive. As such, it does not inspire me, or the voters of a Republic teetering on a precipice.

    We thought that Barry Opharma would slow the D. war but now we know he’s just another centerist trying to keep his job. Paul really is the only one that can beat the liar. I’d have to vote for that liar again if RP isn’t on the ticket so let’s hope he makes it. There’s been talk about Paul’s past letters revealing bigotry but that’s just right wing fodder to scare voters. If you believe Paul is the answer then you’ll won’t be fooled by the crap. I’m just not sure he can survive with all the curruption that’s taking over everyday politics/life here in the states. Of course if he wins the nom then we’ll have Dibold on our side.

    The republicans are schizophrenics. They know Paul is the one to beat Obama and they do everything in their power to drive him from the party knowing full well that if Paul takes them up on their offer to “get out” and run 3rd party, It is game over for them. Why is Paul the one?

    As any campaign expert will tell you, short of the economy tanking, carving off chunks of Obama’s support is the best way to guarantee Republicans beat Obama.

    The youth vote which Obama won by 34% in 2008 is abandoning him. Ron Paul has proven strong appeal with the young voters. He is by far the best candidate capable of not only appealing to this demographic but energizing it towards defeating Obama. Anyone who thinks the youth vote will abandon Obama for one of the other candidates is kidding themselves. This is one of Obama’s Achilles heals and ONLY Ron Paul can not only exploit it – but use it against Obama.

    Most Americans think that with Bin Laden dead, our job is done and we should bring the troops home. Obama is vulnerable on this issue against Ron Paul. Any other GOP candidate will galvanize these supporters to Obama. Ron Paul is the ONLY candidate who appeals to these voters disenchanted with Obama – carving away votes.

    76% of Americans agree with RP that the federal war on drugs is a failure, in fact, only 8% think it has been a success. 89% of the people who voted for Obama 4 years ago believe the war on drugs is a failure. Ron Paul is the ONLY candidate who is positioned to cleave off a chunk of these Obama supporters. Any other GOP candidate will galvanize these supporters to Obama.

    A record number of Americans do not trust politicians. Obama is a status quo politician, Romney is the poster child of insider politician. Ron Paul is the anti-politician and a doctor – and Americans have a high level of trust in doctors. The media and elites hate him. Ron Paul is the candidate who can appeal to these voters and most effectively take votes from Obama.

    Obama is not going to be defeated by a slick DC Beltway campaign alone. It is going to take a nationwide passionate, energized army of supporters. Ron Paul has clearly demonstrated that he can energize his base of supporters like no other candidate can. You and I both know that if Ron Paul isn’t the nominee, this army of energy disappears. But with Paul as the nominee, this army will mushroom.

    The PAUL or NOBODY Problem
    If Paul is not the nominee and just stays home, the Republicans lose a significant part of his support base. He has a large “Paul or Nobody” base.
    Whether they stay home or migrate to Johnson – Republicans loose.
    If Paul grows weary of the Republican’s assault on him and runs 3rd party, it is game over for them. They’re not playing with fire, They’re playing with a loaded gun that’s pointed at their own head.

    Lyme borreliosis is a brain disease as well as a multisystemic disease caused by spirochetal bacteria.* Quite frankly, it is an infection that has been burdened with a thousand inaccurate medical diagnoses. The manner in which the current pandemic of tertiary Lyme disease, neuroborreliosis, has usually been handled— either angrily dismissed or strangely misdiagnosed–throughout the 30 years following its “discovery,” has blemished the historic excellence of modern American Medicine.

    Special to AOL News
    (May 28) — We’re in the midst of a terrifying epidemic, although you wouldn’t know it to talk to most doctors and health specialists.
    The disease is growing at a rate faster than AIDS. From 2006 to 2008 alone, the number of cases jumped a whopping 77 percent. In 2008 alone, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention listed 28,921 “confirmed” and 6,277 “probable” cases of the disease, but there could be as many as 420,000 because of underreporting.
    Prominent victims include Parker Posey, Richard Gere, President George W. Bush, Alice Walker and Christie Brinkley.
    If any other disease had stricken so many people, the medical community would be scurrying for knowledge, scrambling for cures or rushing to warn patients (think swine flu).But more important is the need for public health community to treat this disease like the epidemic it is, and start putting real resources into educating the public and the medical profession about how to identify it, treat it, and prevent it.
