Opinions on a Paul/Kucinich ticket. Previously addressed issueSubmitted by jeverett911 on Sat, 10/15/2011 - 11:28
I remember that there was some interest in this back in March 2011, but I haven't heard anyone talking about it since then. Are there some opinions that we can share about Ron and Dennis running on the same ticket?
If you can remember back to 2008. Dennis ran for President on the Democratic ticket and was in the same debates, on the same stage as Obama. Ron and Dennis both fight for truth and what is right on the floor of Congress and most of the time they are the last two men standing on a single issue.
While all the others take the other (wrong) side of the issue, both Ron and Dennis stand together for the American people. I have a lot of respect for Dennis. I know that people have argued that Dennis agrees on most issues with Ron, but they differ on monetary policy and a few other domestic issues.
Well most of us on Daily Paul have came to understand one thing. We need to help potential voters understand that a single issue that you are not in agreement with the candidate on should not be detrimental to the voters decision.
I honestly think that a Paul/Kucinich ticket would almost certainly pull in a large percentage of Democratic voters who would not ordinarily be voting for Paul otherwise. Dennis seems to be a very likable man and this announcement could possibly intrigue the media to start giving them some air time.
Of course Dr. Paul himself would have to want him as a running mate and maybe this does not go along with his prepared strategy. It is just a thought that I have had for some time now.
Other choices that I think would be helpful to his campaign are: Judge Napolitano, Jesse Ventura or possibly Gary Johnson. The video below is an excerpt from one of the Democratic debates in 2008.
The video below has been condensed to include the parts where Dennis is speaking. He almost sounds like a Democratic Ron Paul.
