Paul/Johnson ?

Is it still possible for these two to team up as a third party ticket?

Please excuse my ignorance in the question

We need 1 guy who can make negotiations regarding this on board:

Jesse Ventura

Not sure if many of you recall, but: In 2008, in the Liberty Convention in Minneapolis, towards the end Jesse Ventura made a statement along following lines.

"In 2012, we will create an independent ticket (neither Democrat nor Republican) which will scare the establishment for their lives"

This year, Ventura has already endorsed Gary Johnson. And of course he has always been behind Ron Paul. Except that he already knew what filth Communist Party....I mean GOP.....thugs were going to pull on him.

Since Ventura himself won't run, he could be a high profile person that could negotiate transforming the ticket into "Paul/Johnson". If it's feasible, it would certainly be the ticket to scare establishment for their lives.

That's what I wanted to hear

Considering we're screwed anyways... :)

They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.

Too late.

Doesn't anyone READ the Daily Paul?

We've only discussed this several hundred times already.

While such a ticket

would be... well... AWESOME,

I doubt it is possible according to "sore loser" laws.

But I think a Paul/Gary or even Gary/Paul ticket would get HUGE public support, if it could occur.

Paul/Johnson?

I don't think so however, Johnson could pick Ron Paul for a high position on his staff. According to Gary's speech at the Sun Dome (?), he's endorses RP. I'm inclined to think that Johnson is more honest than Romney.

I sure hope so. [There is no

I sure hope so. [There is no ignorance in question you're asking.]

I'm holding out hope that Gary Johnson calls Ron Paul and offers to step down to VP role on such a ticket.

There is ignorance in it. Not in a bad way - just not being

informed or bother to do some minor homework on the subject.

A simple search here on the DP alone would suffice and give you all the evidence and reason you need to understand why it is too late for this move.

But there is also

the part in the CONSTITUTION where the person running for PRESIDENT who gets the second highest electoral votes is supposed to be the Vice President. It's never too late to bend the rules, politicians & parties seem to skirt right by them all the time...

Seriously? READ the Constitution.

Specifically - the amendments. Like NUMBER TWELVE.

They changed that back in the early 1800s. They only went three elections under that system. (personally, I think we should go back to it)

When was the last time you heard that the runner up became VP?

Was McCain Obama's VP?

Was Kerry Bush's?

Or Gore?

Please. You must be trolling. No one is THAT clueless.

Was throwing it out there

as wishful thinking, not saying that system is still in place today - OBVIOUSLY. Easy troll-happy...

Sorry. I didn't catch it that way.

Yes, I agree, I wish we did have that system still.

I heard that Gary Johnson had said that

he would step aside for Ron Paul if Ron chose to run Libertarian, which he didn't, but I also read he's already picked a running mate, Judge Jim Gray. Who knows what can happen in the future. I'm holding out hope.

Who is Judge Gray? Maybe we

Who is Judge Gray? Maybe we all need to gather together & petition Gary Johnson/Judge Gray to consider a new path. [I have no idea about Judge Gray's background, but perhaps a cabinet role like Attorney General for him could be negotiated.]
