Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson speaks to a crowd at Macalester College on Friday in St. Paul, Minn. Johnson is running as the Libertarian presidential candidate.

Gary Johnson, the former Republican New Mexico Governor, locked in the Libertarian Party’s presidential nomination this past weekend at their Party convention in Orlando, Florida. The Libertarian Party also nominated Johnson’s preferred running mate former Massachusetts Republican Governor Bill Weld as their Vice Presidential nominee. Unfortunately for those in attendance at the convention, a hopeful for party chair (Mr. James Weeks) did a “strip-tease for liberty.”

Nonetheless, the Johnson-Weld ticket is getting a great deal of positive media attention and acclaim. Gary Johnson is pitching his platform of “peace, prosperity, and freedom” to Berniacs and Sandernistas turned off by the DNC/Clinton machine and conservative “Never Trumpers.” Rachel Maddow recently did a special feature on the Johnson/Weld ticket. Johnson’s preferred campaign catchphrase is “Be Libertarian Like Me.” However, just like nicknames, one does not get to choose one’s own catchphrase. Accordingly, the hashtag #FeelTheJohnson, a clever play (no pun intended) on the #FeelTheBern phenomenon, has caught fire in the Twittersphere.

In my music video “Feel The Johnson,” I play Gary Johnson, who will take voters higher to a place with legal weed. Johnson, a long-time supporter of legalizing marijuana, is the former President and CEO of Cannabis Sativa Inc., a publicly traded company. Here are my lyrics:

Gary Johnson will work hard to defend your freedom and liberties
Gary Johnson won’t wiretap your cell and he’ll let you smoke some trees

Let’s vote then for a third party
C’mon let’s vote then – Never Trump Never Hillary

Gary takes me higher – To a place with legal weed
Gary takes me higher – Gary helps me smoke some seed

Gary Johnson won’t get us entangled in pointless foreign wars
Gary Johnson will turn on the black light, spark up a fatty and listen to the Doors

Let’s vote then for a third party
C’mon let’s vote then – Never Trump Never Hillary

Gary takes me higher – To a place with legal weed
Gary takes me higher – Gary helps me smoke some seed

Let’s vote then – let’s vote then
C’mon let’s vote then – Never Trump Never Hillary

Can you feel the Johnson grow?
Gary Johnson is my dude-bro
Won’t you be libertarian with me?
We’ll have freedom, peace, and prosperity
Can you feel the Johnson grow?
Gary Johnson is my dude-bro

Gary takes me higher – To a place with legal weed
Gary takes me higher – Gary helps me smoke some seed
Gary takes me higher – To a place with legal weed
Gary takes me higher – Gary helps me smoke some seed
