    The poll shows Sarah Palin is running poorly in the pack. That’s a shame. What really should be happening is a Rand Paul/Sarah Palin ticket with Ron Paul as the advisor extraordinare. But nothing logical ever wins out in politics, just logistics….

    @ Rocky Venti~ #1 our boys and girls must come home you have been under a rock if you don’t see what’s happening. WE “The US” have to stop being the world police, we create the terrorists by telling other countries how they should live. Iran-Contra’s I rest my case, that was the biggest cluster fk of our nation.If I want to bang cocaine, snrt meth ,while eating a hot dog wrapped in three peices of bacon then that should be my right to do so. But, in America our freedoms are being robbed from us in the guise of protecting us from “THE BAD GUYS”. “One who gives up liberties to feel safe deserve neither.” “Fear not the path of truth, Fear for the lack of people walking on it.” Words to live by. Run Paul Run 2012!!!!!!

    Mike Huckabee is a man of character and substance. Rarely can you label a politician, honest. I believe you can with Governor Huckabee

    I will vote for Ron Paul regardless, but an excellent running mate would be Chuck Norris. We haven’t had a President who looked after the U.S. first, since Reagan. We’ve had a several globalists in a row. Ron Paul I believe would take care of the U.S.A. first by cutting spending and getting americans working again. My prayers are with him for 2012!

    Our beloved country is in such a bad shape right now. Our rights have been abused and our freedoms trampled all over by the corrupt politicians in Washington. The ONLY man that is in office right now that I would whole heartedly vote for is Ron Paul. All the rest I will make it my mission in life to convince people to vote them out. Especially Nancy Pelosi and that person in the oval office. They are 2 of the biggest crooks and communist I have ever seen. We not only want Ron Paul to run we BEG Ron Paul to run. Please for the love of God and our beautiful Country run for President one more time we need you Doc ! You, I feel are the only one to help us at this point. The common sense you show and concern for our Constitution is exactly what we need. I pray you run Doc. God bless Dr. Paul. Happy Birthday Doc !

    Come 2012 it will be the biggest Job creation the Nation has ever seen, we need Ron to let business run full throttle and we need a man that knows success and the freedoms that it will take to give the business man the ability to move freely. That person would be Wayne Allyn Root in Nevada. I think he would be very friendly to small business and a person in the White House like Wayne Allyn Root business would feel they had someone in their corner. Wayne Allyn Root has said many times how it looks up to Ron Paul and his voting record. Wayne Allyn Root knows we need a man in office like Ron Paul.

    We knew Ronald Reagan was in trouble when he allowed the Kingmakers to put George Bush (former CFR) up as his VP. I am hoping no one will even think about Newt Gingrich (CFR). I will offer to send anyone who will send me a mailing address a 33-minute DVD “The REAL Newt Gingrich”. DonFolkers@gwi.net. This information needs to be spread among our people because the media (including Fox) is covering up his past record.

    All you fans of Ron Paul,

    I am 79 and a retired history teacher. I am also politically active — have been for
    30 years or more. Age is very important! So much has been experienced and learned that the country NEEDS! For example, Presidents since Reagan have been younger BUT haven’t been NEARLY as effective. Look at what Obama has done to our country.
    Do you think that he just MIGHT have done better if he had been 30 years older? Maybe — just maybe -but we know that Ron wouldn’t handle the reins of government like he has. Some of the best work of our businessmen, scientists, composers, philophers, and others have been done when they were “tried and true”.

    Ron Paul 2012! America must elect Ron Paul! Ron Paul is the BOMB!

    Ron will shrink the federal government to allow United States of America, the greatest country in the world, to get back to sound fiscal values. Ron Paul is a true American!

    Is this a tease? I am afraid that the moment has past and I am a bit heart broken.
    I see no RON PAUL like candidate in the near future. And that makes it not much of a future at all.

    I like everything about Ron Paul with the exception of bringing our military home and smoking of marijuana. I think he is getting a little old to run but hey, age is only a state of mind I guess, so that part would be o.k. I like Chris Christie from New Jersey and Jan Brewer from Arizona. I don’t think Ron can get the republican nomination but we have 2 1/2 more years before all these choices have to shake out. We may not even be able to vote in 2012 if obama and his communist/muslim/fascist/progressive band of may fruitcakes get their way and take our right to vote away. (Like they did in California on the butt-punker’s law -
    also proposition 187 to cut off the illegal’s funds) Both were RULED unconstitutional by some damned appointed judges….God help us!
    Oh, yeah, happy birthday Ron!!

    Why isn’t Thomas Sowell on this list. My number one choice is THOMAS SOWELL. Actually, I would love for Ron Paul to be HIS VP.

    I really like Ron Paul. I think he would have made a great president. However, there is no chance that a 77 year old man will be elected president in 2012. Ron Paul would make a great Secretary of the Treasury for President Paul Ryan.

    We need Ron Paul “Now More Than Ever”! He would truly help bring down the Federal Reserve Board which is “Extremely Fraudulent and Corrupt”. Along with the FRB OWNING congress and creating the IRS!!! That was his pledge to eliminate the “So Called irs”. He has my vote and VERY MANY people are becoming aware of this fact more and more all the time! Way to go Ron!

    If Paul decides to run for the 2012 Presidential Race then millions will be ready to fight the fight – especially those who volunteered anonymously(myself included) during the 07-08 campaign

    Now is the time to forget partisanship and save the USA which is about to go bankrupt because of the greed of a few who hold the both the government and the media hostage to pass on limitless welfare to the very wealthy in the nation. Ron Paul is one of the most honest, objective and principled persons from the right in politics today. And the most principled, honest and objective persons from the left is Ralph Nader. When you really look deep into their positions it is quite clear they have more things in common, primarily saving the USA from going bankrupt. So we should advocate Paul/Nader ticket for 2012 to get rid of special interest power in the USA.

    Hate to make it about race, but Colin Powell or another black leader. May be key to getting or at least splitting the black vote. I was at an event recently with Mrs. Obama, and the crowd cheered her like she was a rock star. It’s almost like a cult following. I think many Democrats are fearing/pulling away from the current administration, but not sure they will pull away enough to support an entirely white ticket. A black woman might really do the trick.

    Don’t shoot the messenger – I’d rather it be about who’s best for the job than color or sex…

    Jessie Ventura is most qualified. Has a tv show was a mayor and governor is an ex navy seal and professional wrestler and wrote several political books. I think he would actually do something as vice president unlike most who are just figure heads.

    President Paul takes care of things from Washington and Ventura goes out first hand to solve one of numerous national problems. I find this to be comforting.

    Knowing Dr. Paul is generally celebrated in conservatives and republican leaning(conservative by default) circles, It doesn’t surprise me to see a lot of support for the very conservative or republican only for the choice of VP. I Know this is just a poll and here to get a dialogue going, but liberals and liberal / progressive culture is never going to go away. EVER. not in a million years. It’s the nature of being human. Cause and effect. Same goes with conservatism. Both are here for good whether anybody likes it or not. So the dialogue here shouldn’t neccessarily be anchored in “left v.s. right” ideology, because it’s completely counter productive and avoids the bigger issue here which obviously has more to do with personal liberty, the over reach of the federal government and federal reserve in our economic and foreign policies. Not to mention peace. Which is directly related to the first two.

    I consider myself a progressive liberal through and through. I believe in the legalization of gay marriage, am anti-prohibition, support the “ground zero mosque”, against fundamentalism in religious spirituality. and Dr. Paul’s message has resonated with me very strongly when it comes to those ideals and i know it resonates strongly with what many conservative types who deal with similar shit such as hunting rights, the ability to build your own type of house on your own property without dealing with a ton of regulatory red tape, being able to put Santa Claus cardboard cutouts in your store window, against fundamentalism in religious spirituality. whatever.

    We can’t pick and choose who get’s personal liberty and who doesn’t and expect it to be true liberty. So we have to all take the bad with the good (depending on the perspective, hah!) for the common right to personal liberty for all. And if the real issue of the elastics monetary system of the federal reserve and the issue of personal liberty are taken care of, then everything else will begin to regulate in a truly democratic way.

    Which is why i don’t think it would be a bad idea or bad politics to choose a liberal leaning candidate for VP. As long as their philosophy generally lines up with Dr. Pauls. It would really force the Left to look at what Dr. Paul’s message is beyond the fact that he’s conservative, republican or associated with the Tea Party™. And wouldn’t let the Right to hi-jack the conservative/republican tags to pursue their idealogical impure agenda. Also the symbolic nature of it would force everybody to see through the left v.s. right (which i’m sorry, again is an argument that will never be won, or die, ever) and see right to the core of the real problem we face as a people.

    Just remember. Bush jr. signed TARP into law which is Socialism in the worst sense. Proposed and supported by a number of “republicans”. And when the Republican/Democratic coalition of the Paul/Greyson amendment to audit the fed was killed in it’s infancy, it was Socialist Bernie Sanders who brought it back and got it through.

    The message of compassion, love and liberty is one that resonates with everybody regardless of party affiliation, religion, etc. We all just need to remember to combine our efforts to dig through the endless pit of bullshit to find the few corn kernels of wisdom to help in the revolution.
