    Regarding Ventura, a Truther would be a liability to the ticket.

      Ventura has a huge ego and is an amoral celebrity. Liability is right.

    Kucinich and Ventura. We need some honest ball busters waiting in the wings. If they can get us votes for the win, all the better. Schiff would be low on my list.

    Gary Johnson!!! He leads by example. This guy has executive branch experience and knows how to veto a bill! I would trust him in the line of succession (god forbid!).

    Tom McClintock, recent freshman R congressman from CA. Good guy, needs more exposure. Can step into Dr. Paul's shoes. Been fighting the socialists on the left coast.

      How about Walter Williams instead? Sowell is a respected scholar but I believe he is a neo-con.

    I picked "Other" and nominate John Stossel. He's a major celebrity and die-hard libertarian. He'd rip apart any other VP candidate during the VP debates.

    I believe the rising star of the right is Paul Ryan from Wisconsin, I cannot believe he is not even mentioned on this poll.

    Gary Johnson. Who can be a Ron Paul supporter and seriously think that Mike Huckabee or some of these other people that they've voted for would be a good fit?

    Bah - I meant Judge Andrew Napolitano... was just reading a report on "Sherriff Joe" and then tried to write about the Judge and got the two mixed up.

    The Honorable Judge Joe Napolitano first and foremost. I'd crawl through broken glass to vote a Paul/Napolitano ticket.

    I would offer up Michelle Bachmann as well but I don't really know enough about her, have just seen some clips of speeches she's made in the House that pretty much lay out the fact she's more than ready to leave the Republican Party. However, her straight talk would be lambasted as "extreme fear-mongering rhetoric" by the left, even though we know it's the truth.

    Jessie Ventura, Chuck Baldwin, or Peter Schiff
    I'd also would like to see Michael Badnarik as his running mate.

    Don't get me wrong, Dennis Kucinich and Rand Paul would be good too. But Dennis has a hard time remembering what the 2nd Amendment means. And as for Rand, We'd need a constitutionalist in the Senate if he runs and wins the Kentucky seat.

    Paul/Parker ticket is the modern day equivelant of Thomas Jefferson/Martin Luther King Jr.

    If you think I'm exaggerating or don't know who Ms. Parker is, take a look at this

    Star Parker! She'd be like a Sarah Palin, only she actually has conservative values and believes in liberty and small government. And what a speaker...

    Judge Andrew Napolitano is my number one VP choice, mainly because I am really hoping Peter Schiff will run for the Senate.

    David Walker would make an excellent running mate for Ron Paul. Together,they would straighten this mess out.

    Dr. Baldwin, Schiff or Judge Andrew Napolitano would be great choices. Root might be reasonable, too. I don't think Dr. Rand Paul would have enough public exposure by 2012 to make a solid run for VP.

    I don't see how anyone could vote for Rep. Kucinich on this. Sure, he's done some good stuff, but the man is a socialist.

    I would love to pick the most constitutional running mate for Ron Paul's ticket. However not every American thinks in those terms, if we want to get something done, if we want to get Ron Paul into that damned presidency, we gotta get someone the dumb American people will want we libertarians and constitutionalists have to concede if we want to be seen and heard. I think a nice blue dog democrat,with good political power and a decent love for America would be Denis Kucinich.

    Who should be Ron Paul's running mate? Who can we trust? The most constitutional candidate we can find. Consider Georgia Rep Honorable Lynn Westmoreland for starters. What about Michele Bachmann?
