    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..

    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

    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!
