    Dennis Kucinich would be a great running mate! although the parties differ, they share an amazing amount of intelligence regarding world affairs and monetary policy that most candidates are totally ignorant of.

    I chose Gary Johnson because he would be the most inclined to carry on Ron Paul policies, if something were to happen to Ron before completing his term. I would like to see Napalatano as Att. General..he would be superb.

    Had the nation voted for Sen. Goldwater, Vietnam would have ended a decade sooner. We need to remind America of that.

    Jesse Ventura, Hank williams Jr. , or Alex Jones would all be a good choice. I would settle for Rand too.

    The man is pretty spot on with his views, all accept for the Gun control policy, but we can work with him on that one.

    Looks like we need to raise the awareness level of the Kucinich running mate option. Not many people now about this amazing man. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dennis_Kucinich

    I agree that Kucinich would be a great choice. Of course, Judge Napolitano would be fine. BTW, one person who should be on the list is Ralph Nader. Peace and Paul in 2012!

    I haven’t read about all the others on the list but Dennis Kucinich has almost the same view as Ron Paul. I really don’t care if he is Democrat. Jesse Ventura would be good for Ron Paul Security but I am not too convince about his smart. Rand Paul would be the last person Ron Paul would chose because of Family relation.

    Please add Thaddeus McCotter as another option, he’s so much better than almost all of those. He’s articulate, intelligent and extremely principled, and he can bring in votes a lot of the others can’t. If he announced that he would have a McCotter running mate in the next couple days, I bet he could win the primary and the election. Otherwise Thomas Sowell would be amazing.

    For some of you…. If you don’t like Ron Paul and want to contribute to his support, then get out of here. Have some respect for the people who do support Ron Paul so they can try and have productive converstaion. For those people here becuase they are on the fence and trying to get informed, welcome.

    To those who are here to bash Ron Paul, who ever it is you support, you should be out doing volunteer work for them instead of shooting your mouths off here, unless you are the type that just bitches and complains and does not even vote! Jen

    In his 1987 book “Freedom Under Siege: The U.S. Constitution after 200-Plus Years,” Paul wrote that AIDS patients were victims of their own lifestyle. “The individual suffering from AIDS certainly a is victim — frequently a victim of his own lifestyle — but this same individual victimizes innocent citizens by forcing them to pay for his care.”

    He also questioned the rights of minorities

    Finally, he argued that people who are sexually harassed at work should quit their jobs. “Employee rights are said to be valid when employers pressure employees into sexual activity. Why don’t they quit once the so-called harassment starts? Obviously the morals of the harasser cannot be defended, but how can the harassee escape some responsibility for the problem? Seeking protection under civil rights legislation is hardly acceptable. If force was clearly used, that is another story, but pressure and submission is hardly an example of a violation of one’s employment rights.”

    You can download the free PDF under the books tab above and read it for yourself. I was a big Ron Paul supporter until I read this. I can readily say that I am no longer a supporter.

      @ExLonghorn I guess the truth bothers you. AIDS is a lifestyle disease like diabetes, high blood pressure, and some cancers. This was pretty politically incorrect speech for 1987 but now that we have better information at our fingertips, it is undeniable. Please see the documentary “House of Numbers” regarding the so called AIDS epidemic.

      Also, I have personally quit jobs rather than subject myself to a predator that I could tell I was unable to handle. Lawsuits take time and money and for what? Get on with life, don’t let them use up your time and energy with their pathetic non-lives. I always gave the explicit reasons that I was quitting in writing if I had a new job already lined up, if you have to quit immediately, the problem will be finding a new job since you cannot accuse your old employer, it isn’t professional. It isn’t always easy but nothing in life is. According to my personal experience, this is the real life way that most women handle sexual harassment in the workplace. Remember, he is not talking about violence or threats of force which are criminal or dangerous.
