Only crazies can suggest Ron

Only crazies can suggest Ron Paul-Rand Paul ticket. It will be destroyed in 5 seconds by declaring as attempt to convert US into monarchy. I suggest head examination to people who write about it as possibility.
Demint is a neocon. How much more proof anyone needs.
Judge is not a poltician. He will be destroyed in VP debates. He is a great supporter, but I have seen him having hard time to respond to his own guests with opposite views. He probably is the best for The Attorney General.
I like Lew, but he wrote to many inflammatory articles. No starter.
Chuck Baldwin is OK.
And I like Johnons. And he is not sissy. He is just civilized. And he's got record. Only caveat is, that I dont know his foreign policy views.

no way

this thread is even a bad idea.

nope...Tom Davis. In a state

nope...Tom Davis. In a state that went head over heels for Newt (SC...and don't even ask me why)...this man stood strong for Dr. Paul.


“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

Hell no!

Absolutely no warmongers or anti-freedom running mates!

Duh Mint voted for the Patriot Act extension. He's no friend of liberty and justice.

There are only 2 viable possibilities for VP;

Tom Woods

Lew Rockwell

All the other possibilities are no good...even Rand "keep Guantanamo Open" Paul.

Napolitiano? Nice fellow but worked too much for the system

Johnson? Whimp

Ventura? Ego maniac

Curly Howard? A winner!!!!

I've met Matt Shea and heard

I've met Matt Shea and heard him speak in person several times, and he's fantastic! TOO good in fact to be wasted as vice president. Right now he's a state legislator from Washington, doing very good things on 10th amendment related issues. We need people like him to stay in state legislatures or U.S. Congress to back up President Paul. Same reason Rand is a "no", plus the added reason that the charge of nepotism would insure that Dr Paul would not get elected president, in my opinion. I think VP talk is WAY premature, and I also think that Dr. Paul already knows exactly who it will be when the time comes.

You have to have a VP

you could trust.

It has to be someone with guts...

that endorses him... - IMHO - If Maine's governor endorses him - I'd be all for him to be VP! ... I don't want anyone who didn't have the guts to endorse him! I drive around with my Ron Paul bumber sticker, and defend Ron Paul and have for the last 5 years. - Yeah I'm not famous, but I've gotten plenty of Flack from friends family and just complete strangers. - either way I say no to Demint

"Many of us agree that you and I have no right to use coercion against people who don't owe us anything. The same prohibition applies to groups of people who constitute the government. The reason is simple: unjust acts do not become just when legalized. "


Even the Judge would be for Demint as Vice President


Judge Nap!

Either Rand or the Judge....I vote the Judge for VP!


The GOP establishment loves Jim DeMint, so it's much harder to argue aginst this ticket for them. And they agree on almost every point of policy. I'd be happy with Tom Davis too, but Jim DeMint would send a stronger message - and would basically include his endorsement too.

Seeing all the great people who have made

sacrifices for this campaign shows me that Ron Paul has gotten some courageous endorsements. Why not pick some of these people first?

Why do we go after all these Republican retreads.

We need people with guts not cowards.

Damn Right!!!! Choose a real Patriot!!!
Demint did not back Dr. Paul!!
Hell he may be looking to run for Pres, next time??
We need GOOD people! not sleeze like him! ;-))

I think we need someone as

I think we need someone as headstrong as Dr.Paul to be VP.
Like Jesse Ventura or Gary Johnson.We have to make sure if they try to assasinate him (our worse nightmare)there will be someone just like him to take his place.

This would be acceptable to

This would be acceptable to me, but I don't know that it's the smartest political move. It would give progressives more fire to decry Paul as the extreme right of the GOP. It would alienate some of the liberals that switched from Obama.

Despite the character issues, I'd rather he pick Mark Sanford if he's going to go with high profile South Carolinans. I think they're more closely aligned on issues. Of course you could probably say the same about Sanford that I said about Demint but I don't know if Sanford's record will be as damaging to the campaign as Demint's.

I really think he has to have a libertarian VP or someone like Sanford who's close to it. Probably can't be anyone in Congress.

Do you think

that DeMint would deserve to be offered a VP slot after he totally chickened-out of endorsing RP in SC when we needed him?

I don't think so.

Ron Paul & Tom Davis

should be his suggestion

"It does not take a majority to prevail but rather an irate, tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

--Samuel Adams


for national exposure, sure a Federal Senator obviously has higher profile, but in terms of articulations of the issues, the genuine passion in which he speaks about the dire straits, I'd vote for Tom Davis, now, today, and tomorrow.

that guy is an awesome communicator of the liberty principles. what I love and respect about the man is that the Doc's platforms genuinely challenged his preconceived notions. It prompted him to research the Austrian school. It prompted him to do some real soul searching on the foreign policy position that he initially genuinely had a problem with. but upon some deep meditation, prayers, and reflection, like many of us, he came back to simply admitting that the Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul has always been on the correct side of history, for over 40yrs. And, we're the neophytes simply catching up.

That, is why I truly believe no matter what happens, Tom Davis, if he so chooses to apply himself in public service, he'll be there for a long time to come. Unless he voluntarily returns to private sector. But we could REALLY use some good Constitutionalists in govt, NOW, not tomorrow, or the day after.

Plus, if not, he should definitely challenge that TRAITOR-in-chief Lindsey 'closet' Graham's Senate seat!
