    The VP selected to run with Mr Paul should be an Independent too. Not someone that is part of the 2 established parties. It is truly a time to try to change our politicians. Take back America. Get rid of the Electoral College, and let our votes really count. We no longer need the Electoral College. We now have super fast communication systems.

  • I know it is horribly pessimistic, but an establishment candidate as VP puts Ron Paul at risk. His VP must be someone that fully supports his views, where it will be known that if he is “removed from the picture” (again, I’m sorry to even mention it), that his movement would not be dead. This is not far-fetched. This country’s last truly beloved Preisdent, John F. Kennedy, was murdered in front of the entire nation. To this day the majority of people don’t truly question it. An attempt was also made on Ronald Reagan’s life, where it was later found that the shooter had ties to his VP, Geroge H.W. Bush. Again, no one truly questions this. A man who tries to assassinate the President of the United States of America and has ties to the man who has the most to gain from his assassination, the Vice President, and this man was actually elected President afterward. It is all completely proposterous, and to go about ignoring it is completely foolish.

    Paul/Schiff 2012! Peter Schiff predicted the recession, the housing bubble, the subprime mortgage crisis, and the GM fiasco. I’d love to see Paul debate obama and Schiff debate Biden.

    Ok. No way Napolitano. I dont care how much he is woo’d you with his TV angle. His sister is an enemy of the state. He is compromised.

    Jesse is also no good. Too polarizing and his conspiracy theory show convienently avoids the real juicy truths.

    Schiff??? Are you guys out of your mind??

    Kucinich??? After the tooth lawsuit LOL You people are hopeless.

    Palin?? Hahaha Keep digging.

    Nader. Ok yes. Nader works for me. I think Nader will work for alot of people. Seems like he has a good head on his shoulders and can bridge the libertarian/green divide to create a sizeable party. Also. The media will not be able to avoid that matchup.
