Please suggest potential VP candidates that are not on this list so we can include them in the upcoming poll!

  • Brad Fenn

    Either Peter Schiff or Judge Andrew Napolitano. If either of them running with Mr. Paul in 2012 can’t get the public’s overpowering support than unfortunately, our coutry will continue down its path of forever, endless, undeclared and unjustified wars, (the majority of the 9/11 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia, we did not bomb them) endless overspending and zero oversight in the important areas of our corrupt Federal Government.

    Paul 2012…even though he has not officially said if he is running or not. keep praying everyone!!!! God Bless America

    Michael Badnarik as VP would protect our liberties and Peter Schiff would be the best choice for Secretary of Treasury with an ABOLISHED Fed.
    The perfect candidate to me would:
    1) Offer government mortgages at 20% flat rate interest over 20 years. $300,000 over 20 years would only generate $60,000 in interest but net the gov. a clean 1% annual return on every mortgage in America (presently 13 trillion worth of mortgages). This interest would go directly to pay off our debt and the homeowner saves hundreds of dollars per month to reinvest in the economy and save. If inflation occurs, raise Soc. Sec. rate and build up that fund.

    2) Bring home the troops and use that money to repair infrastructure, making sure that every serviceman and woman has first oppurtunity at a newly created job.

    3)Create flat income tax of about 15%- 17% across the board, abolish IRS (Peter Schiff could handle the tax issue easily).

    The candidate who can explain this to the people will win from any party he chooses. The housing market will flourish, and new construction will boom, the free market will rule the economy, the debt will vanish, and Social Security will not only be replenished but won’t be as urgent because most people will have more money leading to retirement due to the twenty year mortgage and fruitful years leading into retirement. If a candidate does not believe in this, he cares more for the banks than he does for the people!

    The Judge and Peter Schiff would both be great assets and represent a clear break for people across the political specrum from the Neo-Con Empire ideology. End the Fed and give us back our liberties!!

    My first choice would be Peter Schiff as VP. Talk about shaking things up if those two were elected! Fiscal responsibility, sound money, less government, better efficiency from government, and restoring basic civil liberties. Then the word “change” would actually mean something. I have to say that I am a little disgusted by some of the names on the list. Ex. Glenn Beck, Palin, Dobbs, Romney, and Huckabee are all people that need to stay away from Ron Paul. I don’t want any of these Neo-Cons or nut jobs near Ron Paul’s run.

    Firstly, please never mention palin, romney, beck or bachmann in any sentence with Dr. Paul. I think the above mentioned are damaging to this country. Especially the likes of Palin and Beck. A long walk off a short pier would be preferable.

    I would like to see some mention of Chuck Hagel or Richard Clarke. I think both are very down to earth , love our country and are more progressive. I would like to see a revisit to our beginning years of elections and having a President and VP from opposing parties. Either that or a proper formation of a third party.

    should run as Ron Paul’s running mate in the 2012 election. These two American Patriots would put the United States on the FAST TRACK to putting the US Constitution in its proper place.
    We can accomplish this come November 2010 by making the right choices and getting rid of the “bought and paid for” corrupt politicians in Congress. I’m all for 100% Unemployment in Congress. KICK EM ALL OUT !!! We’d all be better off with a bunch of “HONEST ROOKIES” than the combined “experience of the crooked corporate politically correct terrorists now serving in Congress”. Think about it. Could an all Rookie Congress do any worse than what we have now? I for one, think not!

    Elizabeth Warren!!! Based on her principles of always looking out for the middle class. She’s not beholden to either party and truly puts the good of the people before her own welfare. Evident by her constant battles with the banksters. She’s got class, and isn’t bought off like the other 90% of our politicians currently are. Never let them fool you, this is nothing more then pro wrestling politics. Everybody hates each other in the ring “congress”, but there all laughing and drinking a beer together back stage “mansion”. Time for real change and fresh new ideas. No more status quo!!! Paul/Warren 2012

    i would take any of the following: Napolitano, Badnarik, Rockwell, Baldwin, Jones or Stossel. (not in any special order)

    for the record- Beck, Palin, McCain and their like should be removed from this list. ESPECIALLY BECK AND PALIN!
