    I’ve heavily supported Ron Paul in the past but I think his age is working against him and he is not a good speaker.
    Pick Rand Paul, and Judge Napolitan.
    Jessie might be ok but he won’t run as a Repub or a Dem and he has no shot as an independent.
    Gary Johnson would have to switch to a Republican again.
    Peter Schiff doesn’t have the name recognition.
    The rest are neo-cons who will expand the wars, spend us deeper into debt and trample the Constitution..

    Great pro-liberty Senators like Jim DeMint and Mike Lee were left off of this list, yet a turncoat like Marco Rubio is placed on this list. Justin Amash may still be too young for the presidency. Sarah Palin is a fence sitter, keeping a watchful eye on Russia for us from Alaska. Thanks Sarah. You just stay up there and keep an eye out on those nasty Russians for us. And a big thanks to Chris Christie for the big boost to Obama’s campaign, just days before the election. Thanks Chris, for the true neo-con you are. Rubio supported the Patriot Act and the NDAA, along with Rick Santorum, Paul Ryan and Mike Huckabee. What are these neo-cons doing on this list? This website is purportedly pro-Ron Paul, ie pro-liberty. Why are we giving credence to these neo-cons. Hasn’t anyone had enough of Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee warmongering? Hey Mike & Rick, if we need to invade Zimbabwe or those nasty, terrorizing aborigines in New Guinea, we’ll give you a call. Otherwise, go retire to Greenland.

      I dunno, I think it is kind of informative to see how many of them are also chosen…

      Kinda gives you an idea who really knows what they’re endorsing, and who doesn’t.

    I really like the Rand Paul option for 2016. He can build on the Liberty platform and build a coalition over the next 4 years of Senators who value Peace, Liberty, and Balanced budgets.

    I had a bit of heartburn for his endorsement of Romney, but I listened to a speech he gave in New Hampshire and I could see his reasons. He has been campaigning for his dad since he was 11 yrs old.

    The loyalty to free markets is there. That is the big key.

    Rand is willing to use the anti-war message to be able to get the GOP back into the Northwest and East Coast. Marijuana legalization might be a good way for the GOP to show they respect Liberty again.

    Ron and Rand have no shot at all. Neither
    Does Johnson. GOP got scalded in this election
    And need someone with a center right
    Approach. Christie, Jeb Bush, or Huntsman
    Are the only viable choices, with a Latino
    As VP. GOP is history if they continue
    To disregard Latinos and African Americans.
    They may be toast already.

    Ron Paul, then Gary Johnson, then Andrew, then Jesse, then Rand paul in that order.

    I would not select Ted Cruz, he is no different then the crap we have now. Reason being he believes the government has the right to restrict marriage to regular couples which is against our amendment rights.

      “against our amendment rights” – Which amendment is that? The Constitution does not say anything about marriage, therefore it is not unconstitutional to support interpreting the word “marriage” as what it really means – the union between one man and one woman. One of the problems that we have is in this country is that judges want to redefine words so that the laws are different that what the legislators and the People wanted them to mean.

      I didn’t include Jesse or Rand, but I did include Christie…

      I know he isn’t as conservative as I would prefer, but damnit, there is just something refreshing about a guy who is not afraid to say what he really thinks, and is willing to tell you off right in front of all of the news cameras, without worrying about how it is gonna make him look.

      I think we need more straight-talk like that.

      If I couldn’t get someone I considered to be Libertarian, which would be Paul or Johnson, or Napolitano, then Christie would be high on my list.

      I’d love to see someone at a news conference with him, ask him if he’s just another etch-a-sketch candidate… but I would want some advance warning first, so I could toss a bag of popcorn in the nuker… :)

    The 2012 GOP primaries proved that attempting to work within the system is hopeless. It is too corrupt and too far gone.

    When Ron Paul was cheated out of the GOP nomination, the last vestige of hope that something could be salvaged of America by working within the system was dashed.

    The political class has spoken. It has declared that from now on, the only “choices” will be between establishment puppets like Obomber and Rmoney.

    Time for an even more radical revolution than the Ron Paul Revolution.

    This is a foolish queston.

    Outside of Dr. Paul, who, having given a great pat of his adult life on our behalf, should take his victories home into comfortable, well-earned retirement, none of the rest have proven libertarian credentials. It’ll be in the next four years where we’ll get an idea who’ll actually be fit to replace the great Libertarian. Until then, nobody is fit to the task.

    Too many people like to play the arm-chair team manager role. I want to see something explicit and reproduceable before I care one atom about any of the others.

      Bring on the Judge…. Bring on the Judge.
      Besides being Honest in his statements, and a Constitutional Expert, Anytime Fox Fires you for telling the truth about Fox News, PNAC, RNC Party, while working for the RNC party network, like Ron, you have to have some respect for the fight Judge put up, even against his own employeers.

      Just remember everyone, Rand sold out his dad and his dads supporters, for the same old establishment Lobbyist guy that his dad fought against for 30 years. You put Flip flop Rand into the PResidency, then you should have put, flip flop Mitt, in also.

      What is one of the things we admired about Ron?? Through thick and thin, Ron stood his ground and remained consistant about his beliefs.

      Unlike RON, Rand either sold out his beliefs to Lobbyist Party and Mitt, or he “DIDN’T REALLY BELIEVE IN WHAT HIS DAD, SUPPORTERS, WHAT HE HAS STATED FOR YEARS, or what he STOOD FOR, anyway.

    None of the above.

    We need a non-political American with zero experience, except perhaps as a military man or woman, with a great head on their shoulders. Ron Paul is now too old, Rand Paul is a traitor, Gary Johnson is someone even I consider to be a nutjob, so we need someone to groom for the position, who can speak to the ills of the people and the government, to say what they want to hear, and then when they get into office, they need to do what’s actually right for this country, not what’s right for Islam. Enough. I’ve had enough.

Going to try and see what we can do in Oregon. Just heard one of our biggest counties has banned GMO seeds and planting. That’s a start. We are a big agricultural state.

    *NEWS FLASH, NEWS FLASH, NEWS FLASH*

    Today, 11-09-2012, Ron Paul speaks out against all the evils that we are now facing!

    Watch this 30 minutes video and spread it like wild fire!

    (No longer encumbered by having to choose his words, while running for the presidency, Ron Paul NOW speaks his mind — AND ALL SHOULD LISTEN)!

    Mark my words — freed from the confines of playing the NECESSARY TACTICAL Game in the chase of getting elected — Ron Paul will NOW have a much greater impact in reaching all people!

    There cannot be a debate that Ron Paul is the Greatest TRUE AMERICAN of the 21st Century!

    And NOW, his words will reach even greater audiences that will DELIVER HIS MESSAGE OF THE LIBERTY MOVEMENT as our Nation further slides into Poverty and Despotism by the Criminals that are In Power of Our Government Today!

    Watch this video from minute 33:23 till 58:49!

      Surfisher,

      What is it with the “Huckster Alex Jones is tolerable”? You have no idea how you discredit yourself with such ignorant comments. I hope you will see the light one day. I can tell you that if Americans would have listen to the Alex Jones Show, there is no way your country would be in such trouble. Alex Jones is the best after Ron Paul. Give him credit and stop believing the false propaganda that you read on the web. Why do you think Ron paul and Alex like each other so much? I’ll tell you why. Because they are the same. Bird of a feather flies together. Ron Paul has beenn on Alex Show for 17 years. This is how people learned about Ron paul.

      And why do you think that all great minds, like Gerald Celente, Dr Paul Roberts, Max Keiser, Bev Harris, Gary Johnson, Ben Swann, Lyndon larouche, Dr Piezcenick, etc, etc, etc, etc… likes him and goes on his show? Because he is the BEST and they know it.

      Alex is not financed by Wall Street. He is financed by his supoorters and sponsors. His show cost millions of dollars to operate in one years, plus he has a crew of 51 people. And you think he should not advertize or sell anything? His show is on ten of hundreds of radio stations, he HAS TO take breaks for advertizing. Do you know what Free markets are about?

      Stop it, you are working against your country fellowmen by having this stupid attitude towards Alex Jones. Sorry, but I had to tell you this.

    Rand Paul has already compromised himself. We will have to wait a very long time for another like Ron Paul. If Rand Paul can’t even be 100% behind his dad – who taught him the values which he shared, then hell will freezes over before I would dare to think that he’s 100% behind the American People. I would vote for Obama or Romney before I can bring myself to vote for Rand. There’s no point in supporting a person who betrayed his own dad over any other traitors.

    Rand should apologize to his dad. His dad will forgive and forget. As far as I’m concerned, he should serve out his term then go get a steady job. I was really full of hope that Ron would have someone following his footsteps and I’m not saying all this because I’m bitter. However, the reality is that Ron saw what was wrong with America 40 yr ago while Rand can’t even see who’s back he just stuck a knife in. Ron stated repeatedly that there’s really no difference between Obama and Romney, while Rand saw enough differences to turn away from his dad and his supporters.

      I’m afraid it’s too late for America to wake up my friend. The cliff is fast approaching. Our best bet now is to stock up on food, guns and ammo I’m afraid, and to invest in HARD assets that will be worth at least something if the currency goes to 0.

      By 2016, maybe America will see why lots of entitlements coupled with low taxes leads to debt and printing and thus the hidden inflation tax. As the entitlement system fails, the Democrats will wish they didn’t buy votes with entitlements with no way to pay for them. We may even see the entire debt based monitary system collapse. GULP.

        Very well said sir! This is the painful reality we live in now. As much as I hate to sound pessimistic, the American people have proven that there can be no redemption for this divided nation.

        And you are dead on about stocking up. Smart people ought to stock up on as much canned food as they can, learn to make your own ammo and use a bow and arrow. Everyone should also invest in a Survival kit.

        There will be riots and anarchy in the cities so people are better off finding a home in small towns and rural areas (The mid-west and places like Montana/Idaho are ideal IMO).

    I’m not sure if we will see Gary Johnson again… but you would think he’d be on the list. I say that because does anyone know where Bob Barr is?

    Ron is probably retiring for good folks, he’d be over 80 in 2016. Rand seems like our only hope at the moment, but he lost something when he endorsed Romney. It does seem kindof hopeless atm doesn’t it?

    Not that I support her oversea’s policy, but Michelle Bachman might be a good choice for the GOP to rally behind in 4 years. That may at least increase the female vote%. Plus I thought she was great in the debates.

    On the other hand, if the GOP actually decides to embrace some the Libertarian’s view points… Rand would be the ideal choice. I bet most Paul supporters would support Rand despite what happened.

    Now if the GOP does something foolish- like elect Santorum in 2016, that would be the best chance for the Libertarian party to “try again” to get to 5%. So maybe a Rand Paul run as a 3rd party in that case.

      Bachmann is not a constitutionalist. She votes for garbage like federal funding of local schools.

      Bachmann is more of warmonger than even Bush. She criticized Obama for pulling out of Iraq too soon.

        Bachmann always seemed even more fake than Romney did… no way I could trust her… I think the only honest moment I saw of her was on one of the TV shows, when they showed her the BadLipReading video of her, and she laughed saying it was great.

        She’s too much like too many relatives and supervisors and teachers I’ve had in my life, who could only talk AT you, and not TO or WITH you…

        No thanks… I need better than that…
