I think we have just found out who our candidate should be in 2016!

His name is Tom Woods! Not Rand or anyone else would make a better option. We need to encourage Tom to run. Other than Ron Paul, I can not think of a better statesman for the cause. He understands history, economics, and how to handle speaking to crowds and in debates. He is honest, humble, and kind. I can appreciate Tom on the same level as Ron Paul. If he were to decide to run, we could get organized early to help the cause. I would go to bat for him. Not one other person in this movement not named Ron would have as much support. Tom Woods 2016!

I would opt for Judge Andrew Napolitano.

Judge Napolitano has name recognition and less edge than Tom. I would certainly vote for Tom for VP.

Hopefully

one or two establishment repubs are reading this thread. I think they were hoping we'd go away. Yes, we're already planning who we're going to back in 2016...you can't get rid of us.

What?! I thought Jesse the Body Ventura is our warm body for 16

What?! I thought Jesse the Body Ventura is our warm body for 2016.

He said so on Alex Jones. He said, "if we carry him like pharaoh into the temple of his forefathers, he would then be borne unto the sun on eagle's wings."

Sorry. I was watching "Ten Commandments" the other day. And then Jesse came along and issued an Eleventh...

Blast. What's wrong with all the Jesse's in this place? One's a filthy, filthy traitor. And the other thinks he's Moses.

"Cowards & idiots can come along for the ride but they gotta sit in the back seat!"

Tom Woods and Tom Davis. Strength, knowledge, honesty, and two men I would certainly trust and support as president and vice president.

Ditto!!!!!

I'm all for Tom Woods.

Him or Judge Nap.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

As long as they run outside the two-party system.

Both sound very good.

"who are candidate"

should be who OUR candidate.

New Hampshire and Ecuador.

I just saw that too.

Fixed and oops.

Romney will be the Republican nominee in 2016

unless he really ticks off the Republican Party during his first term. I think Tom Woods would make an excellent president in 2020 though.

I would rather have Rand run in 2016

And then Justin Amash after him.

I like Tom Woods but I don't think he's ever held a political office. In Congress he would be great, but not as President at first.

I would too katniss. But you see this is now an Anti Rand site

"PAUL" doesn't refer to either Paul now. It refers to gold, peace and love. Rand is working hard in the senate and the Daily Paul only shrugs it's shoulders and wallows in jessy benton hate as that clearly is the most important thing we should be doing.

Anti-Rand?

Are we Anti-Kucinich? He's worse than Rand, but I see friendship on a lot of major issues. We can't write people off just because they're not 100% aligned with what we want. When we see Rand voting for things that are radically different than our ideals, that's when we should jump ship. All he's doing is gaining ranks within. That's the only way he's going to win the Presidency. You can't gain traction from the outliers of the party. From what I see, Rand is closer aligned with Ron Paul than 99% of politicians in DC. In these next four years, he will be our biggest ally in DC with the most power. He's keeping his principles and moving upward.

I totally agree

you get no argument from me. I was just stating the current state of affairs here at the daily peace,gold, and love

I applaud you for that

I applaud you for that comment.

I've

thought about this every time i've heard the man speak. I think he could have the knack for this type of thing. He can take these incredibly hard concepts to understand and turn it into baby food for the zombies out there who won't take the time to understand it for themselves. I think it's a great idea...if you're reading this thread Tom...get ready....a few of us are nominating you in 2016

There's two I have in mind.

Tom Woods and Tom Davis!!!!

Am I missing something or did we not just see

that the establishment makes the rules as they go along to benefit whom they choose?

The establishment did everything but come right out and say that voting is rigged. If you still think that your vote counts...you need to review the last 6 months of the run up to this election. (along with the telepromters from the RNC and the DNC)

I would think that more people on this site would not be so foolish as to start hoping, planning, and dreaming about 2016 just weeks after being bitch slapped by the RNC and other people in power.

Good God Man!...accept the fact that voting our way out of slavery was not an option in the past and won't be an option in 2016 or beyond.

Waking up the masses and having large groups of Americans to begin ignoring the illegal institution that is disguised as "government" is the only non violent way of freeing ourselves.

Tom Woods can help educate and wake up people but what a waste of time it would be if everyone that worked to get RP nominated THIS YEAR completely forgot about everything we just watched happen.

Odd to feel like saying this on the DP, but Jesus people, Wake Up to what you already know. Voting doesn't matter in ANY election, local, state, or Federal, IF it would in anyway upset the apple cart of the establishment.

Tom woods

should have been running Ron's campaign from the start

How about a Woods/Napolitano ticket??

Or Woods is campaign mgr. of the Paul/Napolitano ticket?

Great speaker!

Perfect!!!

I LOVE your criteria :) He would definitely be someone I could get excited about!

Somebody has to say it so it might as well be me

it's "our" not "are".

As to the topic I think Woods could be a very good candidate but I question whether he has the desire to enter politics. I'd love to see him run for office but I doubt he'll do it.

Yeah. It might be unfair, but

Yeah. It might be unfair, but I just can't take the topic seriously with "are" in the title.

Hehe, thanks

You will be the grammar police on my behalf today. ;-)

I think Tom Woods is a bit enigmatic here. He's 100% right in his principles, and he appears to have no desire to dominate his fellow man, so he should be quite perfect as a leader. I do feel like he would resist the role even more than George Washington does.

On the other hand, some of Tom's speeches have the fire in his belly that we all share. Maybe by 2016, he will have made the personal steps necessary so that he knows he can be trusted with the ring which must be cast into the fire.

Michael Nystrom's fists can punch through FUD.

A couple points about Tom

A couple points about Tom Woods...

1.) He'd be the best for the job.

2.) He'd be one of the worst at actually getting there. For explanation: See point #1.

Seriously. He'd be absolutely great, knows how to explain the message, knows what needs to get done, could shut down any argument. But he has made it absolutely clear he does not want to do it. And his reasoning is sound I think. He would spend all of his time trying to explain basic freedom concepts to and arguing with the media because they'd pick out 2 sentences from his books to try and make him sound crazy... So it'd be a repeat of the past 2 cycles where real issues never got discussed.... Maybe in a few terms when a greater portion of the country has woken up... But if he stepped up for 2016 (or some 2014 governorship or other office) I'd be all for it.

I agree 100000%

Tom Woods is my favorite speaker in the liberty movement. He's the most articulate, witty, and smart person when it comes to speaking or debating. He's a liberty rock star.

I know Tom doesn't want to run because he knows that the establishment will take all of his words out of context... But WHO CARES!

I know that Tom doesn't have a chance in HELL at winning the presidency, but I don't give a crap!

He still needs to run, ONLY FOR THE SAKE OF GETTING ON THE DEBATES AND EDUCATING THE WORLD!!!

Forget about politics, Tom and use the political platform as a way to spread the message and sell more of your books!

We will donate to you, not because we expect you to win, but because we want you to educate the country and the world. Period.

Bottom line: IT'S ALL ABOUT EDUCATION.

(Sorry for all the caps, but I just can't emphasize enough how important it is for us to stop getting caught up in crooked politics and just use the platform to wake people up)
