Meet James Johnson – The Man With The Plan To Unseat Gillard in the Federal Electorate of Lalor
“In a departure from the usual themes here at BarnabyisRight, I’d like to take a brief time-out today.
By introducing you to a rare, and very interesting individual.
A man who – I am coming to understand – is most worthy of the attribution “James is Right”.
Mr James Johnson. The man with a plan … to take out Julia Gillard in [his / her] own seat of Lalor.
The man with a very different – and deeply insightful – view of the many issues that confront both our nation, and our society.
Now, it is only in the past two months that I have had the considerable pleasure of making James’ acquaintance, thanks to the remarkable serendipity of Twitter.
And I must confess, that I myself am only beginning the journey of discovering more about James, and the unique qualities that he is offering to bring to the genuine service of the nation.
So with due prudence, I will refrain from “talking him up” too confidently just yet
However, I can say with confidence that James has caught my attention for this primary reason.
His appearing to me to possess many of the same fine, admirable attributes as Senator Joyce.
Like Barnaby Joyce, James is – I venture to say – another of those startling and stellar souls known as the “Maverick”.
Now, I am one who believes that history demonstrates many invaluable life lessons for us all.
One of the most valuable being, that great and positive change most often arises through just such contrarian, innovative, and insightful thinkers.
Those with both the courage of their convictions, and also thehumility necessary to never be too sure of oneself.
In other words, those with the strength of character to alwaysretain an open mind, while pressing on.
Those who understand intuitively and deeply what it really means … to hasten slowly.
And in pop culture terms, those who have (politically) taken the red pill –I sense that there is rather a decent likelihood that you will be hearing more of James in coming days, months, and years.
And certainly I anticipate bringing some of his ideas and insights to the attention of readers here, where appropriate and topical.
In the meantime, as a brief interlude from our usual fare this Sunday, I wish to commend James – and his thoughts and ideas – to your careful, and considered attention.
… and please visit James’ website – JamesJohnson2020.com
… and do follow his Twitter feed @JamesJohnsonCHR
We will be back to the usual diet of BarnabyisRight tomorrow.”
I am grateful to fellow blogger, truth warrior and dissident political activist @BarnabyIsRight (an autodiadect economist, as I subsequently discovered) for his unsolicited biography that he wrote on me back in July 2011, under his title “Meet James Johnson The Man With A Plan to Take Out Gillard”.
Enough of the territorial chest-beating and the reciprocal back-slapping.
I will be back to the usual diet of “On The Path to Democracy”, tomorrow.
James Johnson, Independent Federal Candidate for Lalor (Australian House of Representatives)
