    Ron Paul and Paul Ryan. A balance of Youth and wisdom. Paul Ryan will be promising with the economy and he has great recognition for standing up against The Obama Healthcare plan and had proof of why it was and is a bad idea. He also seems to be ethical with is rare in Politics these days.

    We need leaders who listen ‘To The People’- NOT celebrity seekers.

    Palin!? Really, some of you voters are scary, about a 150 at last count. My choice wasn’t even available. Can’t be any more of a stretch, Pelosi.

    Love Ron Paul but I agree that picking another Republican is going to look like and be business as usual. Shake it up!! Lincoln Chafee. Republican values but independent spirit! Or a worthy Democrat who can see the importance of giving the power back to the states and the people.

    Ron, Your a Texan, you ever thought of Rick Green?
    He got voted out of office for standing for a lot of the same things you do. Of course you know his district was liberal which again says he was a good honest man. Rick would be a good man. He would be an outsider that could reach out to the voters on the fence and also the younger votes.

    Yes, to Audit the Fed. Fire or send to Jail the thiefs! They are stealing from us!

    Yes, if Heath Care for all?
    Let’s make it real…”ALL” means every living person that has a SS card, or in other words, “All natural born Americans”…Dah!

    Ron, someone needs to stand up for this thought…
    All our federal represention should have all compension voted every two years on national ballot. All present compension would be on the first ballot. I know this is long list. So you need to make it shorter. We Americans are getting taxed to death.

    All funds of the Social Security Admininstration need to be paid back. The vote in the 50’s was stealing from the baby boomers retirement help. Ron Stand UP for THIS!
    The SSA was not setup to have it’s funds put into the General Fund! If the Government can give Trillions to the Rich Companies of America it just stands out that the Government doesn’t care about Middle Class America, expect we are to be Taxed to Death until we only have the Rich and the Lower Class servants.

    Most of our Government is Government for the Rich by the Rich! Let’s get it back to for “the people by the people”. This should be a compain slogan for you!

    Let’s bring the awakening public together with the greatest strength – reach across the isle! Dennis Kucinich is the only viable running mate to unite the country. (OK, so he caved in to pressure on Obamacare – perhaps to survive in the party, but he remains the most honest and astute person in politics – but you have to put aside your left / right paradigm way of thinking.) Divide and conquer is going to remain alive and well, and the majority of the American public will remain at odds, if Ron Paul runs with a Republican running mate – business as usual, in spite of the fact that Ron is the most intelligent man in politics, I believe. The only solution is for him to reach beyond the questionable Sarah Palin types, and anyone in politics on the Republican side. Figures such as Alex Jones are not really respectable as politicians, due to lack of experience, and Jesse Ventura is no longer the type – he’s moved on.

      Why are people adding Dennis Kucinich’s name here? He is so far away from Ron Paul he shouldn’t even be in this conversation. The reason Kucinich was fighting the Health care bill is that it didn’t go far enough! He believes in more government control than the Democrats do, he is not a liberty candidate by any stretch of the imagination.

    Though he has no experience but I think would be an honest persona and a quick learner, I would have liked to have seen Jake Towne listed.

    As far as those who say Ron Paul is too old may need to reconsider. If he’s up for it, he should run. Freedom cannot afford another deathblow from the two headed uniparty system.

    Sarah Palin??? You mean that woman who cuddles up to the Tea Party while stumping for John McCain? NO WAY!

    Replace Sarah Palin with Michelle Bauchman, Michelle would be a great pick.

    if sarah palin, glenn beck and jesse ventura are even IN this poll, and COLLECTING VOTES (!!!), i am obviously on the wrong mailing list… if i want reactionary and unrealistic thinking, i can visit any number of tea party websites.

    remember: ron paul as president isn’t ron paul as dictator. he still has to work with congress. he stands for something quite unique and a large part of which is needed, but to this point it hasn’t accomplished much. he’s not john the baptist. electing ron paul, and not pushing the ‘flush’ lever on the entire d.c. toilet, will do little.

    successful government in american politics demands compromise.

    I don’t know enough about the philosophies of most of these guys to make an intelligent decision. Pat Buchanan, however, would be better as Secretary of State. Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, I think, are serving best in their current capacities.

    Friends, the next step is to go out into your community and begin an ongoing discussion with your friends and neighbors about the disastrous effects of the
    Republican Party, the corruption of party
    leaders and elected officials, and the
    effect on Faith organizations with the
    deceptive practices of such Party.

    There was a time when people believed in truth and regarded truth as an independent power and not as an auxiliary for government, class, race, ideological, personal, or financial interest.
    Today Americans are ruled by propaganda. Americans have little regard for truth, little access to it, and little ability to recognize it.

    Truth is an unwelcome entity. It is disturbing. It is off limits. Those who speak it run the risk of being branded “anti-American,” “anti-semite” or “conspiracy theorist.”

    Truth is an inconvenience for government and for the interest groups whose campaign contributions control government.

    Truth is an inconvenience for prosecutors who want convictions, not the discovery of innocence or guilt.

    Truth is inconvenient for ideologues.

    Today many whose goal once was the discovery of truth are now paid handsomely to hide it. “Free market economists” are paid to sell offshoring to the American people. High-productivity, high value-added American jobs are denigrated as dirty, old industrial jobs. Relicts from long ago, we are best shed of them. Their place has been taken by “the New Economy,” a mythical economy that allegedly consists of high-tech white collar jobs in which Americans innovate and finance activities that occur offshore. All Americans need in order to participate in this “new economy” are finance degrees from Ivy League universities, and then they will work on Wall Street at million dollar jobs.

    Economists who were once respectable took money to contribute to this myth of “the New Economy.”

    And not only economists sell their souls for filthy lucre. Recently we have had reports of medical doctors who, for money, have published in peer-reviewed journals concocted “studies” that hype this or that new medicine produced by pharmaceutical companies that paid for the “studies.”

    The Council of Europe is investigating the drug companies’ role in hyping a false swine flu pandemic in order to gain billions of dollars in sales of the vaccine.

    The media helped the US military hype its recent Marja offensive in Afghanistan, describing Marja as a city of 80,000 under Taliban control. It turns out that Marja is not urban but a collection of village farms.

    And there is global warming , in which NGOs. the UN, and the nuclear industry colluded in concocting a doomsday scenario in order to create profit in pollution.

    Wherever one looks, truth has fallen to money.

    Wherever money is insufficient to bury the truth, ignorance, propaganda, and short memories finish the job.

    In 2010 the US Congress was told by Dennis Blair, head of national intelligence, that the US now assassinates its own citizens in addition to foreign leaders.

    We need strong leaders with the courage to stop putting short-term political gain above the needs of the American people. Leadership that will never again be found with-in the Republican Party.

    I chose Rand Paul, Andrew Napolitano, Gary Johnson, Peter Schiff and Thomas Woods.

    Is there something about Gary that I should know that was the reason for his low poll numbers?

      Yes. Gary Johnson is weak. I heard him last Friday at a meet and greet in CT. He has no problem with open borders and he made some very ambiguous statements about the governments responsibility to provide various social “safety nets” for the needy. When someone in the crowd pressed him on the issue and said it was none of the governments business, he had no answer. Literal silence. Also he is obsessed with legalizing drugs, seems he wants to make this his primary campaign issue. While I think that is a legitimate goal, it makes him seem unbalanced. Is legalizing drugs really the most important thing he can think of for America right now? I was disappointed in him as a potential candidate.

      Peter Schiff was there also. He seems solid.

    Congressman Paul is awesome, but needs to step aside and become the ‘senior statesman’ for the movement.

    And forget about the nepotism.

    We all laugh when our national financiers hold the view that the value of our currency is regulated by the federal reserve. Laying in the vaults of a chosen race, and, this is the joke, our dollars value is guaranteed.
    We must learn that the value of our dollar lies in the productivity of our nation.

    I for one don’t vote for a party. I vote for an individual. Where does it say we can’t have a ‘R’ POTUS and ‘D’ VPOTUS?

    Combining Paul and Kucinich might be just what our government needs and sure as heck can not be worse than what I’ve been experiencig in decades of late.

    I abhor the thought of voting for the worst of two evils when a WINNING team is possible who really represent the people.

    Gooooooooooooooooo Team
