    Trump for Pres Ted Cruz for Vice

  • NymRod

    Where is Ted Cruz?

  • Larry Henderson

    I would like to see the 2 best candidates join forces and reclaim our country . Rand Paul and Ben Carlson are the only ones I believe are capable of and qualified to get the job done. Between them and the 16 years they could share his power we just might get our once great country back on the right track. I just don’t see either one as being powerful enough to do this on his own; but the pair together I believe would be un-stopable.

    I would like a Rand Paul-Jim DeMint ticket.

    I would LOVE Vote for Ron as my first choice, and would like to see Gary run again as my second choice.

    BUT I don’t know if Ron has any fight left in him, heck just think about the mess he will be faced with once he gets in, and having to contend with the masses of people who no doubt will be begging for quick fixes in the wake of inflation.

    Also, it sounded like Gary was burnt out himself from the first (and very demoralizing) run. I’m sure the lot of us who diligently campaigned for him since August felt the sting of such futility after the elections and given the whole “too little too late” dynamic at play here it is really making me debate to myself if I want to register Republican anymore.

    I have very mixed feelings about Rand, but I’m afraid he is probably the only one who will have the stamina left in him to continue. So he would be my first choice for 2016. Rand is policy wise no worse than Garys’ was anyway. Rand is THE only reason I have to not just register as Libertarian.

    Jesse would be a very close second, I like Mr. Ventura allot, though there are people who would be put off by his outspokeness (his nice record in Minnesota notwithstanding).

    Third would be Andy.

    If we could see a team up perhaps, like Rand with Gary, Andy or Jesse, then I think we could have something very powerful. Also, Jesse with Gary or Andy or Andy with the other two would also be very nice and I’d vote for them in a heart beat.

    ***ALL 50 States have started Secession Petitions!***

    The cracks are beginning to show — Secession is but a precursor!


  • Jim Wylder

    Your Poll reflects the most basic problem with American politics and election processes. We will never have a real democracy until we have “none of the above” on ever ballot for every position from President to honorable Dog Catcher. It is that simple. That basic. Think about it. The Greeks had it. Think hard. Real hard.

    And if an incumbent really did a good job, a minimal marker of performance and loyalty to those of the electorate, then at least 50 percent of the casting voters should so agree; and thus we need a Constitutional Amendment stating any and all incumbents, of any and all elected positions, need a minimum 50 percent in order to retain office.

    We need a Constitutional amendment stating that a corporation is not a person, and cannot donate to campains.

    Until we amend our election processes, to reflect these concerns, the merits of our founding fathers will be lost forever. We get the government we deserve.

    For those that think Ron Paul lost, actually, no he didn’t. He succeeded in enlightening and waking up more people than any politician in recent history.

    As he has said himself, his foremost goal in running was always to enlighten people.. winning the presidency was only a side goal.

    Who has created more genuine change.. Ron Paul or Obama? I think if you do the research you will come to realize the truth.

    I was very disappointed at first after what happened with the GOP and all the corruption, but now that the dust has settled the effect he had is clear to see.

    Ron Paul’s revolution will never die. The change he effected is not restricted to a mere 4-8 years, but will go on forever and be remembered throughout history.

    Regardless of what happens to this country now, it will always be remembered and emulated.

    History will look back on Obama and Ron Paul in completely different ways. We will soon see what kind of traitor Obama really is.. A leopard can only hide its spots for so long.

    In Ron Paul’s words.. “Speak up, speak often, and don’t worry about those who cannot yet understand.. They can never un-hear what we tell them.” 🙂

    Long live the rEVOLution!

    (By change, I meant Positive change. Certainly Obama has achieved a lot of negative change toward moving us into a bankrupt police state. ;P)

    ***Petition for Texas to secede from US reaches threshold for White House response***

    The People are finally Waking Up!

    The petition on WhiteHouse.gov asks the Obama administration to “peacefully grant the State of Texas to withdraw from the United States of America and create its own new government.” The petition had surpassed 34,000 signatures as of Monday evening.

    Similar petitions from other states have also been filed including: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Tennessee. However, unlike the petition from Texas, none of these states had reached the 25,000-signature threshold to get an official White House response as of Monday evening.

    LOL @ the people choosing Ron Paul…. the dude will be 81 years old in 2016 and has already stated that he is retiring from politics after his current term in Congress.

    LET. IT. GO.

    • Dawn

      That’s because he thinks we are sick of him. But we aren’t. 😉

      • Enlightened

        You are about as Goofy as that old asshole.

        • Dawn

          Resorting to personal insults now? Can’t think of anything better than that to say? How “enlightened”. 😉

  • C B Law

    My pick for 2016 is clearly and unwaveringly, RON Paul ; he is the ONLY candidate (during this years primaries that espoused the principles I believe in: i.e. limited government; end the fed ; stay out of other sovereign nations; and stay out of peoples personal lives –as long as they are not interfering with your life). I was AMAZED that the Republicans at the Tampa Convention simply blew him off–an incredible demonstration of arrogance and being out-of-touch..
    Anybody that can think straight realizes that we Conservatives can no longer rely on todays Republican Party to do the right thing! That’s simply the way it is! I accept that, and understand that from now on I’ll be supporting a “splinter party” Libertarian—-maybe eventually it will make a difference, nationally, through all kinds of ways……

  • While I totally support Ron Paul, in 4 years from now he will be well into his 80s and I doubt that he’ll get much support from mainstream America or enough to be elected. Dennis Kucinch would be another great choice, but he too I think will be ignored by the mainstream voters. Jesse Ventura I think is the best choice from this list. He has the experience and a good record as governor of Minnesota, he’s honest, he tells it like it is, he is not a corporate robot, and he dosen’t back down! He still surfs which would make him popular with many younger voters and I doubt any of these guys could win a debate with him! The only good thing about Obama being elected, is we’ll only have him for 4 years. We could have been stuck with Romney for 8 years! No way I’ll ever support Rand Paul. He sold out his own father to Romney!

    • Enlightened

      You’re more Goofy than Dawn. You should be happy with Obama. You’re nothing but a “Scumbag” Liberal.

      • Dawn

        Sorry I’m so “goofy” but at least I can think of something to say effortlessly off the top of my head other than kindergarten school style harassment.

  • Eric

    Jesse is the only one that acually has the brass to win a election. He dosent back down and he dosen’t back out like Ron Paul did. You know Jesse won’t turn traitor. No one is gonna mess with him because he will come after them right back and war will be on.

  • Spencer Lindsay

    I urge all Paul supporters to listen to this podcast from Jack Hunter.


  • Marco Rubio is NOT eligible to be President OR Vice-President because he does NOT meet the requirement set forth in Article II, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution of the United States because he is NOT a “natural born Citizen.”

    Neither is Obama.

  • The American

    I will NEVER vote for RAND for anything ………………….. EVER !

    • Then what right do you have to complain about anything?
