I think Ron Paul will be Vice President

A deal has been made.

Everyone knows some sort of deal has been made between Romney and Rand Paul. We all theorize but no one knows for sure. The motives of Rand have been questioned, but look who raised him. He isn't in politics for a career or because his family worships power. It seems obvious to me that he is doing what he thinks needs to be done to restore liberty just like his dad taught him. Moving on.

What was the deal?

As we all know, a deal to make Rand VP wouldn't hardly move any Ron Paul supporter to vote for the ticket; however, a Ron Paul as VP ticket would make many of us question our loyalty to Ron Paul and his strategy for advancing the cause of liberty, leading many of us to vote for the ticket(I'm still not sure what I'd do, but I suppose that's why the strategy could work).

Ron as VP would demonstrate, to me anyway, that Romney has made concessions to Paul's platform, that's the only way I could see RP going for it. None of us would believe a Ron Paul endorsement of Romney which is why Rand had to do it. Listen to Rand's endorsement again. The endorsement was entirely about their fathers. This shows to me that Rand's endorsement has come solely at the expense of Romney making concessions to Ron Paul. I see no other reason Rand would seemingly abandon the movement that he specifically mentions in his endorsement.

No other position offered to Ron could be announced before the election except VP, and only an announcement before then could have any effect for the Romney camp.

So... Ron Paul is Romney's VP pick.

I guess if it is going to be statist Obama or statist Romney, I'd rather get a little more Ron Paul and liberty movement exposure at the same time.

What are you talking about?

The question is this..."Who will Ron Paul pick as his VP?"

Could it happen?

aMybe as a big fuck u ti the establishment. Ron paul is getting ready for something

I think you should learn more about Dr Paul

It's an impossibility.

Plus, it is safer to choose

Plus, it is safer to choose Rand. He is younger, more easy to control, with a career ahead rather than behind and much to lose if he doesn't toe the party line. Ron Paul would be out of Mitt's control.

It would be an interesting way to go. I would pick him probably , it would be the safe thing to do. If he turned it down, he'd still have the ability to say he picked Ron Paul, taking people on the edge.

I just don't think Mitt is in control of the situation or confident enough to do that. I think he'll pick a clone of himself, a moderate, wishy washy VP pick, no one controversial or bold. Mr Milquetoast won't want to become the weak person on the ticket.

And I'm sure the establishment people backing him will fight him hard if he were to bring it up. They can't stand Ron Paul.

You'd think the Kochs would give him like a $billion just to do that. Where are these supposed libertarians and where's the money they keep telling us they're spending??? It doesn't seem to be going to libertarian causes or candidates.

You may be on to something.

Its Not About Loyalty..Its About Principal!

I will never vote for a ticket with Romney on it..Dr. Paul has taught me not to compromise my principals!

Wow, that's a stunner.

I wouldn't know what to do with that one, frankly. I'd have to really think about it. But it seems very unlikely.

Interesting brain candy to chew on, though.

POOH!

DON T' even think about it.

Because it would place Dr. Ron Paul a mere one Brutus away from the presidency.

No Downside for Ron Paul

What is the downside for Paul if he is VP vs. fully retired.

Or... What if he basically picks the VP because of our delegate clout.

It benefits no one for Rand to leave the Senate.

(Ron Paul... Only Vice President on Mt Rushmore. Only VP on American Gold and Silver coins)

Please people do not fall for

Please people do not fall for any vice president bullcrap... mitt romney will never win in a million years against obama. no one ever pays attention to who, what, when, where, or why of any vice president. Nothing of substance would be extracted. Besides, we are nothing alike with romney! He is a criminal as far as im concerned not a platform for liberty. I don't care which paul they try to pick... and we all know who is harder bought. IT IS A TRICK! I am giving rand the benifit of the doubt, I still support him. But if I find out he is romneys vp pick im losing it. I repeat do not fall for any VP party unity tactics by the GOP! It is just a way of sucking you into the party we must take over the corrupt individuals from within and reclaim as it once was ours. DO NOT VOTE FOR MITT! IT IS RON PAUL OR NO ONE! DELEGATES VOTE YOUR CONSCIENCE ON THE FIRST ROUND. WHAT ARE THEY GONNA DO?!? MAKE THEM DO SOMETHING! THEY WILL ONLY EXPOSE THEIR OWN CORRUPTION!

Ron Paul As VP Would Be The Only Way Mitt Could Win

If Ron Doesn't Win The Nomination.

Because after all the cheating, lying, stealing of Ron's votes(Election Fraud), disenfranchisement of voter's and delegates, and physical brutality initiated or inflicted upon Ron Paul supporters and campaign ( http://dougwead.wordpress.com/2012/06/03/war-breaks-out-in-gop/ ) by the Romney "establishment" supporters and campaign, there is no way in HELL I believe the majority of Ron Paul supporters will vote for Mitt unless he admits to at least some wrongdoing, apologizes, and Ron endorses Mitt and also, RON MUST BE ON THE TICKET... Why? Ron has to be on the ticket because so many of his supporters(LIKE ME) have said it's "Ron Paul Or Bust" Or "No One But Ron"... Many RP supporters will only vote for the ticket if Ron Is On It. Otherwise many will either be writing Ron in for president or not voting at all. Just A Ron Paul endorsement may be questionable to many due to the magnitude of damage that has been done to RP supporters collectively and may damage Ron's integrity with the movement.

Ron MUST command that he be on the ticket, for Mitt to apologize, and make more concessions to the Liberty movement in order for Mitt to get his endorsement and to get the RP vote. Otherwise, it's evident that Mitt will LOSE the general election. Why? The general election works differently than the individual state primaries and caucuses. From what I understand, either side can only cumulatively rig about 10% of the vote in the general election because it's too large. This is why the "establishment" has gone to so much trouble to keep Dr. Paul from getting the nomination since it has implications of getting on the general elections ballot and getting the entire Republican Party vote plus whoever else decides to join and vote for the Republican ticket.

If Ron isn't on the ticket, I believe we will eventually go into civil war since Obomney are both NWO. I don't think either side wants that. They want more time to softkill off our population so they can eventually control human resources and inflict world government and in turn control the remaining population as slaves. This I am convinced is their ultimate goal. They've already got the Chinese slave labor camp going for most items the elite will need to have manufactured using human resources, so they just want to kill off the rest of us now as we're just a liability at this point.

Besides all the poison and toxins put into our food, water, environment, prescriptions, vaccines etc... Latest attack on us is from what I believe was a manmade disaster - The fukishima earthquake and resulting tsunami and radiation crisis I believe was coordinated using a HAARP earthquake machine ( http://current.com/community/89003708_teslas-earthquake-mach... ) - The High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is an ionospheric research program jointly funded by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy, the University of Alaska, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)...

The manmade disaster was caused in Japan so that the radiation would affect mostly Japan and spread according to the ocean Westerlies wind currents that go from Japan to the United States. One of the most common health problems associated with radiation poisoning is infertility so this is in line with the UN Agenda 21 goal for a 1 to 2 Billion world population.

But, because of recent events, I believe the NWO is being forced to make a deal due to the strength of the RP movement and the amount of people who are more awake now. This has become evident seeing all of the discussion about the Rand endorsement in light of all the controversial events that have happened so far in this election. I would say most of the RP movement has been very angry and Rand just set the fire with his endorsement of Mitt without getting his apology, although he has made some concessions toward the liberty movement...

This move by Rand may have been an orchestrated event in order to get some much needed media exposure and resulting dialog on these issues. This is telling that Mitt just can't change his mind about what issues he supports in order to get the RP vote because many won't believe him unless he puts his money where his mouth is and puts Ron in a position that makes a difference to the majority of RP supporters. I believe the majority of RP supporters will vote for Mitt if Ron is on the ticket because many have sworn to vote for Ron.

VP is still progress because VP can "likely" lead to President in 4 to 8years. I've heard some say that VP is insignificant and just a mouthpiece position. I don't completely agree, but even if that were true, wouldn't that mean that Ron would have more time to make more speeches and help recruit more activists into our liberty movement to still make headway towards our goals? Ron being VP is NOT a loss, it would be progress for the movement. Yet Ron as president could help us reach our goals quicker and consequently protect natural resources and save more lives in our country and around the world. We are in a race against death of humanity, and extinction of liberty. The longer the NWO is in power, the more people they will enslave and kill, and the more money and natural resources they will seize.

Also, Ron getting in initially as VP isn't in conflict with our movement strategy that has been used all along with the Republican Party. All along, the liberty movement has worked in, and worked up to the highest level gatekeeper positions in the Republican Party with allot of success. This election is no different. So far, the liberty movement has been more successful in some states than others. We are seeing the results of this progress in the delegate process and we are taking action to fix the problems in the states that still have issues from the grassroots up. We continue to grow the party with more active liberty minded supporters that are starting to take over positions in the state and local governments which is actually the most important type of progress that can be made since corruption starts at the local levels.

Please don't misinterpret, Ron is still in the race and we need to fight with all of our might to try to get Ron the nomination so we can have our first choice as president so we can Restore America Now vs. a slower, more costly both financially and with resources and people's lives, and I believe overall a more painful recovery. I know everyone is saying he won't win but if Ron truly believed that nonsense, then he would drop out, which he hasn't. So as long as Ron still thinks he has a chance, I will still think he has a chance and I will fight my hardest to help him win the nomination and get on the general elections Republican ballot for the highest probability of a general election win...

It would be really nice but I don't think it would happen.

Not even an outside chance - this is the Republican party you are talking about don't forget. Look from their perspective. It's the same party that shut Ron Paul out of the debates in 08, shuts out Ron Paul's principles every chance they get, and to quote Lew Rockwell, "they are a disgusting bunch, they are for torture, concentration camps, war, drones in your back yard, go down the list of horrible things the federal government is doing, and they are all for them."

No Way

I would like to see Dr. Paul as Secretary of the Treasury. With his leadership we could turn this country around. IMO

SOT

Would strike a blow for fiscal sanity and sound money. Not to mention could offer opportunities to b**ch slap Bernanke. But is there any way that the SOT can say 'not just no but hell no' to the POTUS...? I don't think so.

Not Good Enough

I will not vote for Mitt Romney even if a photo is revealed showing Ron Paul holding on to the marionette strings that are attached to the Mittens doll.

i could not vote for the bilderberger

Romney is just telling Paul

Romney is just telling Paul he is going to choose him as a running mate or cabinet position and will then flip-flop after the "revolution" is crushed into a million pieces due to the deceit.

When Ron accepts the nomination, he picks his VP

It's OK to dream it, just don't expect all your dreams to come true.

Be thankful for the ones that do.
