      Jesse Ventura is right on many things but his ideals on 9/11 are way out there and are based on unfounded 9/11 was an insider job conspiracies that lack substantial evidence. The only thing substantial in their claims is tower number 7 and even then there isn’t enough strong evidence to prove that it was a controlled demolition. Yes I understand some relative of the Bush family may have been involved in a security contract in regards to the WTC but nothing more ever came of it. There is however significant evidence that the attacks were well known about in advance and the information was ignored as stated in the 9/11 Comission report.

      However to say that it was a staged operation is ridiculous when Al Qaeda has tried before to blow up the WTC in 1993, not to mention the USS Cole or the US Embassy bombings in the Africa all caused by Al Qaeda. Islamic militantism is real and is partially caused by their own religious beliefs as listed in the Koran and that of our interventionist foreign policy of installing dictators in charge of Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, among others. Saying this doesn’t mean that pulling out isn’t a good idea as that is what should be done. The Middle East will always be violent with or without our help.

      Our presence there has made it worse and our leaving won’t make much of a difference. Even if Iran is developing nuclear weapons, and we know Pakistan has them too, both India and Israel have nuclear weapons which provides a natural balance of power in the region. I’m sure the Shiites and the Sunnis will be going at while we are there and long after we leave so why stay? The Muslims have been fighting amongst themselves for supremacy amongst each other like the old Christian fiefdoms as far back as Saladin and still continue to to this day.

      As far as the question of VP goes, my pick would be Andrew Napolitano, Peter Schiff orGary Johnson.

        You state that there is no substantial evidence that there was foul play of some kind at 9/11. You are wrong. Not only are there hundreds and hundreds of pieces of evidence, but the smoking gun is the scientifically peer reviewed paper written by Dr. Steven Jones where he and others found unexploded military grade thermite in 4 separate samples of the dust collected in different locations and times after 9/11. The still active thermite shows that there were explosives in the buildings and that they were taken down by demolition.

        Who did it and why? I don’t know, but a new independent investigation with this evidence at its core would come up with the answers. Read it for yourself. I have. http://www.benthamscience.com/open/tocpj/articles/V002/7TOCPJ.htm

        Steve, I think you need to listen to one Dr. Steve Pieczenik. Google him yourself. To help you a bit, may I suggest:

        The Credibility of Dr. Steve Pieczenik – His Biography Told In Yesterday’s Newspapers

        He has been bold enough to come forward, in front of the American people and state ‘that bin Laden died in Tora Bora of Marfan’s syndrome in 2001 and that he was told by a prominent general that 9/11 was a stand down and a false flag operation.’

        Do you own research, and make up your own mind, based on what your ‘conscience’ dictates to you, based on best information that is available to us …

    Possibly someone like Cynthia McKinney. Someone who is strong on personal liberty, has gotten off their *ss to try and do some good & can get attention. It’s largely a position without responsibility anyway, the point in a political exercise is to grab attention to create energy, excitement, etc. McCain attempted & failed for obvious reasons, but there are many qualified women out there. Two old white men, just sounds boring.

    lol… is it mere chance that the two top contenders on this pole are the ones that Americans see the most through their brain-washing box, a.k.a. the “television”? Oh America, you make me quite sad.

    Peter Schiff and Lew Rockwell are more qualified by FAR than either Napolitano or Ventura, especially if we’re talking about the economy, which we SHOULD be. Both men are brilliant when it comes to free-market economics, and I trust that Ron Paul would understand that. Of course, Dr. Paul visits LewRockwell.com daily and Peter Schiff was his economic advisor during the 2008 run, so it’s clear the man knows good economic sources.

    I’m on the fence about Rand. I’m not sure a father/son combination would be ideal for the presidency. Conflict of interests? Perhaps.

    I believe there is little chance any of this votes or posts will influence the process at all. Nevertheless I would like readers here to consider that for Ron Paul to win the White House, besides making it through alive, he will most surely need someone in the ballot to appeal other than libertarians along the campaign. I will not give names, but I am absolutely certain another libertarian in the ticket will not help Paul at all, much less Paul and half (Rand). I like libertarian candidates the most, but you have to account for some diversity within certain principles. I just say.

    P.S.: And you have to consider yourselves lucky you have Paul. In Europe we do not have any choice, at all. Paul at DC would be inspirational for the whole planet. Good luck for us all!

      I agree entirely Spaniard. Electing Ron Paul would set a precedent here in the US and abroad. But I believe aside from having a VP elect that appeals to people outside Liberterians and Conservatives that would encourage bipartisanship there is also a need to have a VP that is media friendly. Some of these people on this list would simply be laughed out of the building by the likes of Fox, MSNBC, or Comedy Central. As much as I hate the biased media that exists here they are something that we have to contend with, and I am sure as much flak as RP has taken campaigning for presidency three times and having his ideas being rendered as ridiculous, the last thing he needs is a celebrity or an activist. That will just bring him down. But I am sure you are entirely aware of that considering your media is much more biased than ours. Be strong my friend, I hope change comes to your shores as well as ours!

        Farage. Of the UK Independence Party. I enjoy watching him call out van Rompuy and Barroso, too. He is right about the EU, and UKIP is beginning to define itself as the party of decentralization in UK domestic politics, but they are not anywhere near as good as Ron Paul. As far as I can tell, their opposition to political and monetary union is not rooted in anything nearly as substantial as Ron Paul’s opposition to the current monetary and political arrangements in the U. S., which has the whole intellectual apparatus of the Austrian school of economics behind it. If Farage et al. were to discover Mises, Hayek, and Rothbard, they would become even more dangerous to the Brussels Eurocrats.

          Interesting that you should mention Nigel. When this poll first showed up I actually found myself wishing that he was an American citizen. He has the backbone to call them like he see’s them. Not to mention his command of the English language. A pity for sure.

          My thoughts on a running mate excludes everyone on that list that’s been an elected Washington insider. So that leaves out everyone but Schiff and the judge. Frankly speaking anyone thats a standing member of the CFR belongs in jail as far as I’m concerned. All the relics and holdovers from the cold war era like Powell for instance. Should be banned from and have their phone calls to DC blocked for life. As they are 80 percent of the mess we find our selves in. We need a clean slate.

          The framers did screw one thing up. That being the offset two year voting cycles for our congressional and Senate elections. We can’t fire them all at the same time. And that sucks.

            I think the Judge is the best of all those listed in terms of his age (young enough to reassure those concerned about Ron Paul’s age), experience (having been a state superior court judge), and commitment to and ability to communicate libertarian ideas (as any Freedom Watch viewer can attest). Schiff is great at communicating Austrian economics, but I think it would be harder to make the case among the general public for a ticket that contains someone who has never held public office before. Lack of that kind of experience doesn’t, in my mind, disqualify someone for VP, but not everyone think about these things the way we do.

            And I agree about Nigel. He’s fearless. And whatever ideological disagreements I may have with him, fearlessness is a quality I deeply admire.

    I wish Thomas Sowell was an option. I picked Walt E. Williams. I doubt either would do it. But few can explain libertarian ideas succinctly and intelligently as those two professors. They have the academic background craved by the media. They are minorities (I hate this line of thinking). But they are so smart and seem to be the perfect running mates.

    I think Allen West’s name should be on there. He is well liked by the religious right, he finally got it right on the Patriot Act, he is well spoken, he knows the military and world affairs quite well, and while he isn’t as strong of a noninterventionist, he has gone on the record in a rather long speach criticizing the War on Terror as ridiculous an idea as if we had declared war on German Panzer Units during WWII and likened our actual ground tactics in Iraq to a game of Whack-a-Mole, so I don’t feel he is too hard line of a war hawk.

    While I could definitely support some of the provided options, I think West should bare at least some consideration.

    As much as I would love Jesse to be the VP he won’t do it. I don’t know how recent the interviews I watched are they did not have a date on them (just an upload date). Jesse said he would only be Ron Paul’s running mate if he ran as an independent. While as like the list I think the people who would say no outright should be removed from the list. What good does it do if Ron Paul and all of his supporters desire a certain running mate and that running mate says no. I would probably put Rand in the same boat I don’t think Rand’s wife would let it happen. But on the other-hand never say never.

    It is great to see so many great people in the top 10 on the vp list. It is cool to see Dennis Kucinich up there in the top 5, it shows that Ron Paul appeals to a lot of liberals as well. I think it would be difficult to have Kucinich as the vp due to their differences on domestic policies, but I think it would give him a very good shot against Obama. If it were up to me i’d have to go with Napolitano because of his understanding of the constitution.

Not to mention a first class economist. Second choice Ralph Nader. He has shown by his actions to be like RP where integrity and courage are concerned. He has the battle scars. Jesse is an entertainer. Rand I would expect to be a non starter simply because of the nepotism problem.

    I think Gary Johnson would be an excellent choice. Governing experience, proven history of Libertarian views, capable of taking over if necessary (let’s be honest, Ron is healthy but also elderly, so that’s important). Also, the Republican base may not love it, but Gary reinforces Ron’s appeal to Independents and Democrats fed up with Obama. It makes a much more solid ticket than pairing Ron with some establishment Republican.

    If elected Ron Paul needs a Vice President who is not only as scary to the establishment as Ron Paul is, but very tough too. Who better than former Navy Seal Jesse Ventura? He stands for many of the same things as Ron Paul, and he could probably help arrange adaquate protection for a President as well as anyone.
    Every U.S. President who has ever stood against a privately owned central bank like the FED has had an attempt made on their life or died mysteriously. I hate this fact, but it is a fact.
    I was 11 years old when JFK was assassinated and it still hurts. America was so full of hope and it seemed there was nothing we couldn’t do. It was all ended in one day. I don’t know how much it had to do with the murder of JFK, but Executive Order 11110 challenged the power of the FED by directing the U.S. Treasury to issue more than 4 billion dollars in debt free and interest free dollars in the form of silver certificates. Some of you may remember them. After the assassination they were quickly and quietly removed from circulation and destroyed. The Constitution provides for the government to issue it’s own debt free money rather borrow it at interest from private banks like the FED. With an annual interest expense of over 400 billion dollars on the national debt it makes a lot of sense to do this. It also makes a lot of enemies. If elected Ron Paul will need all the help and protection possible.

And yes his killing, killed much of America’s spirit. RP has rekindled it. And for that We Americans that still remember the bright and shining beacon of hope she represented, should be willing to make sure Ron Paul gets the time in office to use that presidential pen to press the reset button and restore the gleam in Americas eyes and hearts.

    Easily Gary Johnson. A govenor with experience, relatively young, and similar enough ideas that I think he fits the bill well. It also helps that I could see him in the attack dog roll, the roll the vp is supposed to have while the president plays the statesman. The other individual I would consider, provided that he moved more to the liberatarian spectrum of the isle is Bobby Jindle. Also young, an effective governor, and it doesn’t hurt that he is a minority. However, like i said, he would have to pass my libertarian street cred first.

      Seriously, Michael. You’re kind of a dink.

      Because people want to move our country back toward a more central viewpoint and actually put the Constitution before the platform of a political party, they’re insane? You’re entitled to your opinion…one of the many freedoms granted by that same Constitution.

      Ron Paul is an American patriot who panders to no one. He has not been bought and sold by the left or the right; he is an intelligent, thoughtful man who loves his country. I concede that he may not always come across as eloquently as his opponents in a debate, but that neither diminishes the man nor his message.

      I’m saddened that those who desire to follow our Constitution are considered outliers and “batshit crazy,” because so many people have such a distorted view of what the Constitution really says about the role of government. Originally designed to serve its people, we now serve the government.

      And just to be clear, I do not care for Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachmann, both are self-serving and have little interest beyond their own hype and fiction. Ron Paul is a million times classier than the two of them could ever hope to be.

      I’ve said my peace, so before you start flaming or trolling again, remember, those of us who view Ron Paul as the answer are not really affected by your argument of “voting popularity.” We’re not looking for the quarterback or cheerleader to win a high school election; we’re about serious change. When people stop voting based upon who can get elected or who can beat the other guy and start voting based upon what candidates believe and practice in their own lives…it will be a great day, indeed.

        Well said.

        It reminds me of a little child going down the cereal aisle, and picking cereal based on how colorful the box is, or whether there is a toy inside or not. Who cares if it’s nutritional or not.

        I wonder how many people have actually tried comparing the current situation in regards to laws being passed or trying to pass, and general mindset, with Germany in 1939.

        It baffles me how so many people just plain don’t seem to understand the constitution and what it represents. You know, it wasn’t that long ago, when, if someone said something another person didn’t like, the response always was, “It’s a free country, I can say what I like.”

        That is no longer true. That, just by itself, is a true indicator of how far down the wrong path we have gone.

          We’ve created this mess by being “sheeple” and by going along with whatever is popular or shiny. I’m appalled by those who vote having no idea who or what they are voting for. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE this Country, and I would die defending it if needed, but we are such a dumbed-down, watered-down version of what we should and could be. I truly fear for our children.

            I completely agree. I love this country and the ideals that it was founded on. I took an oath when in the military, to defend the constitution. I still believe in that oath. It should be every citizens oath, not just when in the military.

            It is the only thing that keeps us safe. That is why they are trying to dismantle it.

            Their main weakness is, they have to APPEAR to be reasonable, rational, for the people, helpful etc. They HAVE to appease a certain percentage of people to maintain their illusion. They use the laws, both to allow themselves more liberty, while hindering ours to resist.

            Haven’t you ever noticed how Bernanke for example, always cites blah blah blah, congress gave us the authority, blah blah blah?

            He is right, congress DID give them the authority, BUT, congress can TAKE IT BACK, if they only had the will to.

            As I see it, probably the best way to get our country back, is to play the same game.

            Our strong point is our numbers. If we can get enough people off their couches and start thinking, we could use the system to start cutting out the enabling laws the crooks have implemented, and start getting back to how this country was intended to run.

        Excellent response. You sum up your character and your argument so well that I’ve converted to liberalism.

    Obama was a Jr Senator and that did’nt seem to matter. Rand is man!

    Everyone needs to let Rand develop and blossom and stop pushing him to run for president or be his father’s vice president. He is a junior senator still in the mentor program and needs time to learn how the ins and outs of DC work. He can run in the future after he builds a foundation.

    Jesse Ventura Should Be the Vice President. He has Been a Navy Seal, he has a good background.

      Bob Barr

      James Traficant or

      Gerald Celente

      It has to be someone that “they” would hate to see being president more than Ron Paul.
