    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.
