Paul/Paul 2016!

I think the best ticket we could hope for would be a Rand Paul/Ron Paul V.P. Ticket in 2016. Despite people questioning Rand's motives for endorsing Romney, the reality is that doing so kept him from being totally alienated from the GOP Establishment, which as we have seen, is a death sentence to anyone who truly hopes to get a shot at the nomination.

What an awesome ticket this could be. Rand's voting record to date has been nearly impeccable (far better than any one else's in the Senate for sure) and I think that his passion for the cause of liberty can not be seriously questioned, even if he does do things slightly different than his dad. In addition, we would get both Rand and Ron out on the campaign trail, spreading the message of liberty and firing up the liberty movement. It also helps to quell the concerns about Ron's age, as V.P. he would not be required to do that much, except of course advise and mentor his son and do what he does best...spread the message of liberty!

I think it would be a dream ticket and I would support it wholeheartedly!

Of course Ron. Stranger things have happened and I would never presume that he will or will not run again; he will call his own shots. His fan base continues to grow, and with age comes wisdom so Ron's age doesn't bother me in the slightest.

Rand is in the circle and would also have Ron's and our tremendous support. I like much of what he does. The other things, well, voters wouldn't be so opposed.

Napolitano, absolutely, has an awesome appeal and following.

And there is Amash. #1 in my book, after scouring his voting record, and speaches. As I have eluded before, he is Constitutionally sound, and would literally rake in the younger generation, as they are now our present, and our future :-)

Well there is

An official ron Paul 2016 Facebook page and an official rand Paul 2016 Facebook page.
Maybe both will run together as an independent or something.

If Ron Retires?

What would you think about a Andrew Napolitano / Rand Paul ticket?

I've been thinking about it and Fox would have a tough time discrediting Andrew because he's a very familiar face to their crowd. Andrew would seem like a very strategic pick.

Although I

would of course prefer Ron because he brings a level of excitement, ethusiasm and loyalty that few others can garner, I certainly would not be opposed to the judge if Ron was not able or not willing to run. I like him a lot as well and think he is an honorable man that would do (has done) much to promote liberty.

Rand Paul Is A Traitor

I wouldn't give that snake my vote if he was the last Liberty Candidate left in the U.S.A. That apple fell far from the tree.

Some might argue that you are

Some might argue that you are a traitor, including Ron Paul after he asks you to endorse his son and you refuse (on what grounds?) LOL.

The burning question

is, when are some people going to stop expecting Ron Paul to save you, and come to the realisation, the torch has been handed (collectively) to you.

I don't remember

saying anything about needing Ron Paul "to save me", my Savior has already done that. And yes, we all must do our part to reclaim our liberty in this country, but the reality is that someone is going to run for President in 2016 and I would much rather have a man who promotes liberty and Constitutional government than another status quo politician who is only going to continue to promote the same old tired failed philosophy of big government that got us here in the first place.

Yep.

I'm not really for dynasty.

I'm not really for dynasty. How about Paul the elder and someone else, like the Judge or Kucinich or Walter Jones or Jesse V?

Denise B's picture

Dennis Kucinich

is definately not someone I would promote...although he does some good work in some areas, he is at heart a socialist and would not belong on the same ticket as a Paul....too different philisophies on how government should be run. I like Jesse V, but honestly think Ron P. is getting past the age where he could reasonably run for president, so he would most likely have to be VP and I just think Rand and Ron together would make an unstoppable pair, especially because Rand now has gotten some mainstream Republican trust and support behind him amd if Ron would trust and support Rand to be President, well than I would be willing to trust and support him too.

Dennis Kucinich agrees on the

Dennis Kucinich agrees on the two most important issues affecting this country: End the Wars (reduce military spending) and Audit the Fed. Wouldn't that be a truly amazing accomplishment for one term of a presidency? You would also reap the benefit of breaking the divide and conquer form of politics where the powers that be and their mouthpieces (Hannity, Rush, Olbermann, Ed) try to convince people daily that anyone that doesn't think like them is their enemy and is stupid. A Paul/Kucinich coalition would DESTROY the mainstream DNC/RNC paradigm and get people realizing that they don't have to choose between those two sinister parties. Yes, though, after the troops are brought home and the Fed is audited, RP and DK would have dissimilar philosophies on economics -- though in those 4 years a lot more of the DK followers would probably understand the economics of liberty, and Kucinich's rhetoric is pro-liberty (he just doesn't get the economics behind it).

Rand appealing to mainstream NeoCons comes at a price. That price is left-leaning indies and dems that Paul/Kucinich would pick up in DROVES as would Paul/Nap and Paul/Ventura.

You don't need neo-cons to win anymore, in my opinion.

Denise B's picture

Tell my why,

despite what you've just rationalized, that a Paul/Kucinich ticket would in any way be preferable to a Paul/Paul ticket. Both of the Pauls understand the important issues right out of the gate, no learning curve required. Rand is able to garner support from both liberty and "mainstream" republicans while Ron, as we have all seen, garners supports from the full spectrum of people...from liberal to conservative. I just don't see any downside of a Paul/Paul ticket, especially with a four year headstart to organize, educate, network and promote the idea.

Reverse the order,

and I'm in. If not, no.

I want a strong President. Ron Paul Strong.

There is someone else just like Ron Paul

Fighting to get into politics right now. Maybe he's serving in Afghanistan. Don't give up hope.

True as that may be

Perhaps they're misinformed?

misdirected?

A Ron Paul presidency will leave a legacy that shall forever be remember around the world.

in the middle east, the people will awe at him.

In europe, people would promote like minded people.

In Asia, people would want to cooperate with him and those like him.

In Africa... well, I'm not too sure.

But in America, we will remember him as the greatest president, and will set a standard for politicians of all ages.

I Really think that just by announce a run, the movement can advance like lightspeed.

Exactly

what I was thinking!

It's a brilliant stroke, worthy idea, and well worth pursuing

Yet, there are many things to deal with, including education of voters, prevention of rigging, dealing with the slanderous actions of the media, and much more.

Denise B's picture

I agree Dr. K

..there is much to deal with, but we have four years and momentum on our side. I don't care what the naysayers say, I think it would be the best ticket for liberty we've seen in a long long time and very worth pursuing...and I plan to keep promoting the idea.:) If we could pick a ticket that we could all support early on and work together to find a way to overcome the vote rigging we might actually get somewhere this time...

If you truly feel that way,

than rather just be negative, why don't you offer up someone who you think would have a better chance than Rand & Ron running together....I'll be waiting for your suggestion....

I do apologize for being so pessimistic. It comes from a lifetime of frustration, and in my defense, for every negativity comment I make I've refrained from 9 others.

You're joking right?

Rubio is not Constitutionally eligible because he is not a natural born citizen, just like Obama....Christie - the guy who just said what a great job Obama did handling the disaster in NY? (another establishment guy) and Paul Ryan...you really must be joking..! None of these three can hold a candle to either Rand or Ron when it comes to promoting liberty and Constitutional government, and those are the only things that are going to save our Republic.

All I am saying is that it's not realistic to expect that either Ron or Rand will ever be president. I'd love to be proven wrong, but I won't be.
