    I know it is horribly pessimistic, but an establishment candidate as VP puts Ron Paul at risk. His VP must be someone that fully supports his views, where it will be known that if he is “removed from the picture” (again, I’m sorry to even mention it), that his movement would not be dead. This is not far-fetched. This country’s last truly beloved Preisdent, John F. Kennedy, was murdered in front of the entire nation. To this day the majority of people don’t truly question it. An attempt was also made on Ronald Reagan’s life, where it was later found that the shooter had ties to his VP, Geroge H.W. Bush. Again, no one truly questions this. A man who tries to assassinate the President of the United States of America and has ties to the man who has the most to gain from his assassination, the Vice President, and this man was actually elected President afterward. It is all completely proposterous, and to go about ignoring it is completely foolish.

    Paul/Schiff 2012! Peter Schiff predicted the recession, the housing bubble, the subprime mortgage crisis, and the GM fiasco. I’d love to see Paul debate obama and Schiff debate Biden.

    Ok. No way Napolitano. I dont care how much he is woo’d you with his TV angle. His sister is an enemy of the state. He is compromised.

    Jesse is also no good. Too polarizing and his conspiracy theory show convienently avoids the real juicy truths.

    Schiff??? Are you guys out of your mind??

    Kucinich??? After the tooth lawsuit LOL You people are hopeless.

    Palin?? Hahaha Keep digging.

    Nader. Ok yes. Nader works for me. I think Nader will work for alot of people. Seems like he has a good head on his shoulders and can bridge the libertarian/green divide to create a sizeable party. Also. The media will not be able to avoid that matchup.

    PAUL+NADER 2012

    I was just thinking Jon Stewart would be a good match for Ron Paul. Its taking a risk but i can see Jon Stewart pulling alot of votes in. I would also consider Alex Jones.

    We must break open State sponsored terror starting with 9/11/2001 and stop it for ever. That’s why Jesse Ventura should have a position of power in Govt. We must also stop Media lying. We must! Media lying is a nose around our necks and it will hang us to death. We must stop school-propaganda and go back to education. We must or America will perish.

    Chris Christie what he has done in NJ not giving in to the unions would be my pick. He would be a good candidate for pres if Mr Paul did not run. The judge Mr Napolitano knows the law and goes by the constitution will tell you the truth and also a friendly person not afraid to talk to us peons.

    OurAmericaInitiative.com Please check out this site. Please go back tot the videos from the Rally for the Republic and see this man speak. Look at this mans record. Find out if he is going to be in your local area and attend that function and speak to him one-on-one.

    Then you you will understand why many of us believe that Ron Paul will be endorsing, supporting, and actively campaigning for Gary Johnson as the next Republican President of the United States in 2012. I sincerely believe that a vote for Gary is a vote for the Ron Paul R3volution.

    The R3volution will be televised (this time). Lets get the ball rolling.

    I resally think Colin Powell would be a great VP., I see him as of man of pride and political experience and a veteran of our country. Most of our elected people have never been in the service of the US. They have no idea what war is really about. If (forbid) a Pres is killed or just dropped dead from a health problem, a man like Colin Powell would have the strength and courage to be a President. Common sense and education make good people.

    My thoughts on this matter are:

    Cynthia McKinney – Vice President
    Chuck Baldwin – Secretary of State
    Andrew Napolitano – Attorney General
    Michelle Bachmann – Head of DHS
    Peter Schiff – Chairman of the Federal Reserve
    Gerald Calente – Secretary of the Treasury
    Mike Adams – Head of EPA (or Department of Health & Human Services?)
    Glenn Beck – White House Press Secretary (hahaa!)

    No to Kucinich for me. A lot of his views are “big government,” which as we’ve seen, results in less liberty.

    Dr. Paul,

    Few years later, I still can’t get over the unfair mistreatment that those media were doing against your champaign. How can you avoid this now? Is any strategy prepared? Please be ready and be efficiently strong in front of your millions audiance next time! We need you to bring the true change to us.

    I love your political ideas and hope the best that you can win next time. Therefore, the great American people can trully win with a change they deserve, otherwise, most other politicians will simply create more derailing problems for the world economy and the world peace within their 4 years term.

    It is somewhat disappointing that Herman Cain didn’t receive more votes. This man is intelligent, understands the issues, has demonstrated great skills in management, knows how to address an issue, has great communication skills, has courage, compassion, and knows how to motivate the masses. I am watching him carefully and learning more about him all the time. Anyone who would vote for Romney and fail to vote for Cain isn’t reading the issues, watching the economy or checking the voting history of Romney. People like Cain and Ron Paul could bring t his country together and put us back on the track to freedom.

    I will not click the box next to the name of the real leader of the Republican Party, Pat Buchanan. I might be misconstrued as someone who would vote for Ron Paul.

    I will never vote for Ron Paul, Libertarians, Neo-Feudalists.

    The Neoconservatives on this poll being is running mate is unrelaistic. So next poll dont put names of the neo’s who are fighting him. Chuck Baldwin needs more politicial experience and mayby he should go study political science, economics, and consitutional law before i can belive he would even make a good congressman. Jon Stewart is a progressive minded person not a libertarian. Lou Dobbs in the executive branch is just never going to happen. So The person i can realisticaly see vice president is Dennis Kuchinich

      There was a time when looking good on TV wasn’t the primary (or only) trait which determined electability.

      This list made by Libertarians just proves how shallow, where nothing is sacred, our society has become.

    Imagine libertarian hero Ron Paul taking progressive hero Dennis Kucinich as his running mate. Before I made the horrid mistake of voting for Obama in ’08, My favored democratic nomineewas Dennis Kucinich. He’s the only congressman besides Ron Paul that I’ve seen stand up for what’s really right. Then, he was a progressive, but I’ve read that he recently has been moving towards a libertarian standpoint, himself.

    Walter Williams has a way of communicating the differences between Corporatism, socialism and free market capitalism so that people will see the evils of corporatism and socialism. If people listen to him they will be able to identify the socialists and the corporatists from the capitalists. I think maybe Andrew Napolitano would be a better VP but chief economist should be Walter Williams he is the best at identifying crucial differences in economic policy. Sara Palin is another sheep ready to be lead down the same path as the other neocons and I’m not sure Colin Powel knows about the Fed

    I think if S. Palin is a running mate it would not be a good thing. Colin Powell is a very real person, served in the military, is of an acceptable age for VP. I have listen to his remarks on different TV news shows, he does not come across as a good speach maker., rather as a real person with an understanding of the average US citizen, he was after (I think) a general, I believe the political banner of Ron Paul&Colin Powell would be great. Having his son as a VP running mate would not appeal to the public..

    HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY DOCTOR RON PAUL AND MAY YOU HAVE MANY MANY MORE.
    PLEASE RUN FOR PRESIDENT IN 1012 AND AGIN IN 1216.

    Now for reality; As each day passes I am more convinced that we live in the most brainwashed nation in the world. You know that the Russians, Chinese Etc. know that they are being brainwashed and can do little about it being unarmed and at the mercy of there dictatorships. Here in America (United States) the vast majority don’t believe that they are brainwashed and refuse to do anything about it. We so called conservatives etc are like a bunch of chicken’s runing around with our heads chopped off believing everything we think we want hear and checking little out.
    We the people need to do the reserch and really educate ourselves. LEARN-THINK–FORMULATE AND DO if we have any hope of saving this great nation of ours………………..George

    ACTION IS NEEDED NOW
