If you could choose one candidate to run for president, who would it be?

Ron Paul.

But if he doesn't run, then who?

2008 has grown massively leading to 2012. Instead of continuing to grow this r3VOLution, you have let it die. Is it now becoming more difficult? Are you throwing in the towel? Have you accepted that it is now necessary to play ball with ptb and gop?

Have you learned nothing?

My point is this: Ron Paul never would have realized the momentum had it not been for r3VOLution. WE should be propping our candidate of choice. If we can decide upon a solid candidate, each one of us should be propping that candidate in our respective states, counties, locally. If each one of us participates, then we can have real momentum, larger than any rallies that we have ever had previously.

I am certain that if enough support for one candidate evolves, the person who we select will readily accept.

Or will you just settle for what msm offers? Because if that is the case, then I am on the WRONG forum.

Mid terms are approaching and we should be focusing on those. But mark my words establishment has already been working on 2016. So have I.

David Lory VanderBeek is the new Ron Paul.

Dick Cheney - I said it before I'll say it again.

plans for the future

Since 2001, when asked if he is interested in the Republican presidential nomination, Cheney has said he wishes to retire to private life after his term as Vice President expires. In 2004, he reaffirmed this position strongly on Fox News Sunday, saying, "I will say just as hard as I possibly know how to say... 'If nominated, I will not run,' 'If elected, I will not serve,'
How perfect is that?

Jen had known associations with pandas in college.

Vote for Sue. It's the right thing to do.

I wish she was more well known.
But she is pure.

Her name doesn't pop up much, but she's someone to keep an eye on...in a good way I mean. At least from what I've seen from her.

A fresh face we can ALL get behind, with all the qualities of all our favorite candidates.

The link to his campaign site

The link to his campaign site and that youtube has him giving a speech that opens with him calling Sandy Hook a false flag...seems legit/end sarcasm.

Yes but being that you're here pointing that out

He may be a good pick.. Thanks!

I nominate Nobody.

I will vote for Nobody when the time comes.

Nobody I trust.

Free includes debt-free!

I have a few I like...

...like Judge Napolitano, the problem is, they will ALWAYS cheat and set things up to pick the "elite" choice. It seems like all we can do is put someone on the platform to inform and educate others like R.P. did. If only we can get that far again it will still be worth it. The masses are still ignorant, but the wise are growing!

I think I want to avoid making this about personalities.

What is the proper role of government?

How does "this" promote liberty and constitutional rights?

If a candidate has already broken his oath of office by voting in favor of unconstitutional legislation, should I hold up a hangman's noose?

What we need are warm bodies to fulfill their oath of office, personality isn't important less they would like a neck stretching.

Politician's are a dime a dozen, hang a couple of them for Treason that will get their attention.

Right now they fear CIA or FBI assassins more than they fear their Oath of Office.

A good politician can put on a pleasant personality like he puts on his bedroom slippers at night. That way is madness. It was visible here on DP last summer.

I don't know, but I'm wondering what the target is.

Free includes debt-free!

I agree.

That's why I said the Judge. Ron Paul indicated that he wanted to choose him as V.P. Don't think Ron Paul would have put someone in that position unless he KNEW that he would follow through. If you have spent a lot of time listening to the Judge, he's pretty equal with Paul's beliefs and tough about it.

If not RP

then I will take Nigel Farage for $100 Bob.

Beat me to it

Add 100.00 to yours.

Cynthia McKinney

Cynthia McKinney... She's articulate, smart, brave , a champion. I don't expect I would agree with all her policies but neither did I with Ron Paul. As in the case of Ron Paul I put my faith and trust in him as a man and his record of statesmanship...so do I put my faith and trust in the honesty, integrity of Cynthia McKinny.

To be honest

Ron Paul!

Aside from the good Doctor,
I'd take anyone who isn't a flaming hardcore neo-con;
Rand Paul, Chris Christie. Hell I'd even take Sarah Palin or Jon Huntsman over neo-cons.

Avoid at all costs: Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani, Herman Cain, Rick Santorum. Neo-Con nutjobs. Santorum is the worst since he is so brainwashed he doesn't even realize he's a neo-con stooge.

My first choice would still be Dr. Ron Paul again.

My first choice would still be Dr. Ron Paul again. My second choice would be myself. Either way, that's not going to be easy game.

Ok, j/k about the second choice, I don't have a clear idea as of yet. I'm thinking maybe someone like Rand (why not, you can evolve a bit in 3 years, it's not like 3 months or weeks before a deadline) or Amash or Woods...

But anyway. Looking at the number of distinct topics of serious concerns we could have going on if only on this little oasis of liberty on the WWW ... would that be that it's not so much who the next candidate could be but instead ensuring we really have secured, for good this time, a true renaissance of ideas for a return to the country's institutions?

That's what I believe is now even more important and goes beyond just men, as exceptional they might be...

"western social decay" ... it has been happening, ever spreading ever broader and broader here and elsewhere for too long already.

AFAIC, I still focus on that: the cleansing up on the field of ideas, trying to reach as many as I can of the few people around me.

Hell, I'm rendered to a point where "I attack" a fraud a la Paul Krugman with my comments on his own NYTimes blog... trying to excite curiosity (theirs: his readers, fans or not)... Maybe I'm just making a fool of myself. I don't care. I know WHO the frauds are. And I try to make the common sense points we all know of re: classical economics, or what their keynesian lies consist in.

We get what we pay for. We lose what we neglect.

Victim of a carefully engineered confusion and collectivist deception plans for decades, if not a whole century, the people have let themselves be distracted enough to neglect what had protected them for 130+ years, by 1913.

I believe it is not too late for this effort of Dr. Ron Paul, started in 1971, to reverse this trend of infamy.

Mentalities. The people will get their cold shower anyway ... "soon", I just hope we WILL be ready to restore with them this country's wounded foundations.

How weird you post this

The other night (morning really) I dreamed I was the president. I was in the Oval Office prepping for a televised speech and going over its content with 'the team' (guess my 'handlers') but they weren't really handling anything because I was pretty much yelling at them. I said, "No. We're (I know I meant America) done with that. I'm ending the wars. No more War on Terror, No more war in Afghanistan. No more war in Iraq. No more War on Drugs. We're outta them all. If I'm going to war with anyone it'll be with Big Pharma and Big Agro...."
And that's when my alarm woke me up, still feeling pretty indignant at being questioned about my plans.
Gosh, would I love to know someone in the political arena who would actually do something like that!

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

Good thing you woke up

A bullet though your brain was next. lol

My choice would be...

Tom McClintock


Conservative AND Libertarian!!!

Well, Since....

...I always apply the same measure to anyone seeking office, I will see who may be out there, willing to run, and then who measures up.

Anyone who does not is rejected.

No 'lesser turd', no pragmatic 'political realities', no 'party-loyalty', no 'best chance to win', no 'conventional wisdom' or 'public acceptance'...

...Simply the use of the Constitution and the Principles of Individualism/Individual Liberty, used as a yardstick to measure one's actions and rhetoric.

You're driving them home yourself lol

Just thinking about all the butt kicking I could
do makes me giddy!

This is the same misguided question that has killed our chances

in both of the last two elections so far. "Who would you vote for" or similar, is the wrong type of thinking about this. Here's why I say that.

TPTB run a top-down organization. They tell all the people below them who to rally behind. In doing so, they assure unity behind a single candidate. They even hold public forums called primaries to further unify their forces behind one candidate. They do this because even as big as they are, they know that splitting their vote effectively nullifies it.

The R3VOLution operates the opposite way. We're all about bottom-up power. Get the people involved and they will push the solution or candidate to the top. Unfortunately, we have zero control over splintering. The Gary Johnson, Rand Paul, Judge Nap, etc. people pulled votes from the group and divided us just when we should have been winning straw polls. Even so, we still won them but the media wouldn't have been able to ignore a landslide RP victory if we were fully organized behind him.

So, I would suggest that we organize early and create our own privately controlled but very openly public primary (structured in a very grass roots way) to gain our own consensus. It has to be a single system that all related groups participate in so no duplication or miscounting can take place. This ensures accuracy and that, in turn, attracts support from those naysayers who say we don't have the numbers. Leaving the voting open past this time will allow those new members to also be counted. This is how you build a unified vote which truly can win against the big leagues.

Without any such public consensus, I probably won't even vote.

Very well said

Bottom-up is the way to go. Having so and so in the WH won't do much in the long-term if the people aren't willing to change.
