  • Michael Leach

    Dennis Kucinich a true bipartisan ticket like the founding fathers

  • Nick Neal

    “clone of Ron Paul” should have been one of the picks.

  • Flynn Kelleher

    Judge Napalitano would be AWESOME, but democrats who do not know him would never sway to a man who works for “Fox Business”.

    Jessie Ventura would be an ideal running mate to detour the New World Order from ever “taking out” President Paul. I love Jesse, but he has a temper to be mocked and easily made fun of.

    Dennis Kucinich is very cool and can sway more democrats away from the Obama vote. This would show how both parties could work together to take back the republic from the two party dictatorship!

    Paul and Kucinich= 2012 DREAM TEAM!

  • Miguel Reyes

    How about a real American like Hulk Hogan

  • George Brooks

    I’ve often said I would love to see Jesse Ventura on the Ron Pual ticket but in reality I think Pat Buchanan would be my number one pick followed by Andrew Napolitano then number three Jesse Ventura.

  • Steven Acerra

    Dennis Kucinich or Barney Frank

  • Chris Cefaloni

    Rand Paul!!!!

  • Brent Jacobs

    Jason Chaffetz.

  • Tyler Forman

    Jesse ventura

  • Jake Ilardi

    Jesse the body!!

  • Ryan Prasad

    Jesse Ventura????

  • Kyle Jimenez

    Peter Schiff

  • Christopher Grimes

    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.

  • Sandra Isrow

    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.

  • Patrick Helms

    Rand just proved he is with the warhawks with his vote for sanctioning Iran….what a loser.

  • Albert Ceja

    Rand paul!!!

  • Chris Parr

    Demint sounds good, but what about Peter Schiff?

  • Rick Meeder

    Walter Williams or Gary Johnson…Napolitano , supreme or Ted Nugent for DOJ.

  • Wayne Schonmeier

    Jesse Ventura is a good choice too! I wonder who Ron Paul is thinking of? Im sure HE knows best

  • Tricia Rawson Buster
