Either a Paul-Johnson or Johnson-Paul Ticket Would be Much the Same to Me.

The irony is, who do we have to thank for the idea of a virtual co-presidency? Dick Cheney. There would be no question of the policy direction coming from the White House, and I suspect even a Ron Paul VP slot would draw almost as many votes as a ticket headed by Paul.

If it turns out to be too difficult to put Dr. Paul at the top of the Libertarian ticket, I'll take any ticket with him as VP any day.

The important thing would be to have Dr. Paul's voice in the spotlight and able to command media attention. And a debate with Biden, Paul, and Ryan would be a television ratings sweep. Can you image Smokin' Joe Biden all tongue-tied and stammering at Ron's zingers? The Libertarian ticket's inclusion of Ron Paul would also kick Johnson up to the 15% threshold needed to be included in the presidential debates.

Just thinking out loud here and exploring all options. What do you guys think? The closer we get to election day, the more apparent the bankruptcy of Obamney will become.

Better yet

Gary Johnson gets elected president and appoints Dr. Paul as fed chairman. That would be the ultimate we gain control of the Fed while while we are in the process of shutting it down.

LOL Johnson getting elected without Paul is delusional

why do he and his followers want to lose? Looks like they would rather play Libertarian social club than hold power and make change.

Anywhere they might lose ballot access they would gain back by having the millions of people for Paul come out for them.

I really dont think

The media would allow either into the Debates. The Illuminati obviously control them and are doing a pretty good job already making us look like WE are the ones to blame for Obama getting Re-elected. They want us to turn against each other so they don't have to.

Illuminati, got my mind, soul, and body.

If Ron Paul is on the ticket, one thing Johnson

would get is an army of poll watchers and precinct workers to keep it honest. Evan said last night that one thing Dr. Paul would like to see if he is on a third party ticket is all of us watching the polls in some capacity. Which means it's as good as done. Johnson doesn't have the manpower to cover thousands of polling spots. We do.

Sheriff Barney Fife and Deputy Andy...

would have been a different show.

The only question is the

The only question is the amount of support in the polls a Johnson-Paul ticket would get versus a Paul-Johnson ticket.

I will seek out and actively work for any ticket that Ron Paul

is on. Word would go out quickly to people disgusted with Romneybama, which is most people I know, that there is a satisfactory place to put their vote. The disgust out here is so thick you can cut it with a knife.

I would not support a Johnson/Paul ticket

I would hesitate to support a Paul/Johnson ticket but probably would.

Before you reply...

...do you understand the fact that this country is facing a currency crisis? Do you understand how dangerous that would be and how it could ruin our country going forward (pushing us into a possible revolution where who knows how terrible the possibilities could be)?

Do you understand that Romney has Dubya's foreign policy advisers in his campaign and how that could end up meaning war w/ Iran (which could lead to WW3)? Also, Romney has no plans to cut spending. He wants to increase military spending, won't touch medicare or social security. Between those 3 along with interest on the national debt, that's 80% of the budget right there. So where are spending cuts going to come from? The answer is nowhere. Romney will lead us into a currency crisis just like Obama. Cutting the rate of increase is NOT a cut!

Do you understand how corrupt the Obama administration is? Signing the NDAA?! Almost certainly protecting Jon Corzine from prosecution despite the fact he stole over a billion dollars? Defending Eric Holder with executive privilege over subpoenaed documents from an operation that ended up killing one of our border patrol agents. Electing 2 supreme court judges who both voted for the unconstitutional Obama-care? Creating class warfare by pointing to rich people saying they need to pay more taxes when the truth is that those additional taxes would only run the government for a couple of days. Obama might end up being like Hollande in France who might drive big business right out of the country w/ his 70% tax bracket.

If you would hesitate to support a Paul/Johnson ticket then

why are you on "Daily Paul?" Just curious.

Why on earth not?!?!

And you would "hesitate" to support a ticket w/ Ron Paul at the top and GJ at the bottom??

Please explain.

You are in a dream world...

You are in a dream world... Ron won't even endorse Johnson...

Johnson is in a dream world to think he'll get anywhere near

the White House without Ron Paul. If I were a Libertarian Party apparatchik I'd be begging Ron, unless irrelevancy is a turn-on to them.

Wishful thinking

I bet you guys are holding out for a 2016 run from Ron too, huh?

Troll alert.

I personally think it would be a smart move by the LP

Whats the positives and negatives?

Positive: Boost in ratings and I think a VP ticket is stronger than an endorcement. Most of RP supporters i honestly think would support a GJ/RP ticket.

Negative:Add's against Johnson could say "crazy Ron giving him advice" or "a man who couldnt win as president nominee, latching on to save face" I think they would still attack Ron and not GJ.

The real question is, who wins the infowar? The Liberty Movement? or the Media?

I think either way it would

I think either way it would be so much better than the other two tickets I would vote for it in a heartbeat. Newt made me realize I could never vote for Mitt.

I will take any chance of being in the White House and

in the national spotlight. Of course Ron Paul as president is our top choice, but just to make clear that even VP would be a heck of a good second choice. Paul would be the most active VP in US history, directing all legislation and policy behind the scenes, with Johnson getting to make most of the speeches.
