    I chose Lew Rockwell, but the judge is good too. Rand Paul I agree would be awesome. Now thats a first and a jewel.

    • MarciaBacon

      @CarolFryer It wouldn’t be like it would be a monarchy, that’s what we have now only they aren’t related and Rand and Ron don’t agree on everything but I bet a lot of people would be wary, I would love it. You know we have to fire everyone we can that’s in office this time, there are only a few that are worth keeping, I think there are a minority group with some ethics but key word is minority, we really need to send a message and clean house. GOOOH.com is a web site that tries to recruit citizens to run for office, I’m not sure if they have a big enough following to have been able to do any good, but what I read sounded like they tried to vet people to get the most qualified. The people in Washington are either stupid or viciously crooked.

  • JohnT

    Jesus of Nazareth should be his vice-president!

  • What about snoop dogg?

  • What about snoop dog?

  • Marge Zakowicz

    I think fiscally coonservative, constitutionally knowledgeable Jim DeMint of SC would be a great fit.

  • T.j. Blanton

    I swear to God, some people have no idea who the politicians they support, actually are.

    Dennis Kucinich? The only thing in the world that he and Ron Paul have in common, is opposition to “policing” the world militarily. Beyond that, the two are polar opposites.

    Alex Jones? Really? Sure, a guy who the media already thinks is crazy, picks some internet conspiracy theorist to run as his VP? I’m sure that would be a successful campaign.

    Barney Frank? Where the hell did you people come from? lol.

    I’m glad that most of you are not seen or heard. Keep supporting Ron Paul, and if he gets the nomination, vote for him…if he wins, thank you for your support, but please…hide in a hole until 2016.

  • Denise Beahm- Langkam

    Does anyone know where to get some Ron Paul bumper stickers?????????

  • Daniel Burbano

    Reach across the aisle and pick Kucinich. Funny how a Dem is the closest to RP. Vote and Pick Kucinich!

  • Trisha Chaput

    Tom Woods!

  • Joe Magliocco

    Gerald celente!

  • Kelly Wright

    Dennis K.

  • Brian Thorp

    Kucinich is wrong about many things, but on foreign policy he is spot on. That’s why he would be desirable at the State Dept. Napolitano would be the quintessential U.S. Supreme Court Justice if an appointment were to become possible.

  • David Buchanan

    Don’t forget the people from trends.com

  • Robb Downs

    Napolitano or Ventura

  • Naveed Hussain


  • John E. Songer

    Jesse Ventura is the only smart answer. The Ron/Rand Paul ticket would be awesome, but we’ll still need at least one honest senator.

  • Mary Frey

    J. C. Watts

  • Clay Cromer

    Ventura or the Judge !! either one would be a good choice !!

  • Clay Cromer

    I like the way Brian Thorp thinks !

  • Peter Michael Beck

    Kucinich is a tax and spend liberal- what’s wrong with you people!
