Gov. Gary Johnson on Stossel to discuss State of the Union

Gov. Gary Johnson on StosselGov. Gary Johnson will be joining John Stossel live in New York on the Fox Business Network during and after President Obama's State of the Union speech. The show starts at 11:00 p.m. Eastern time.

In an email notice, Johnson says:

Since last year's State of the Union speech, the national debt has increased by another $739 billion. We have learned that our own government has been and continues to be engaged in a level of spying on American citizens that has shocked even the most suspicious among us. And, despite having partially shut the government down and pounding their chests about its size and cost, the politicians have continued to grow the bureaucracy and its control over our lives.

In short, the "State of the Union" is business-as-usual. The President won't say it, but the truth is that both he and the Congress fully intend to just keep spending money we don't have, intervening in foreign conflicts with no U.S. interest at stake, and taking over more and more of our personal lives -- including our health care.
