I think Ron Paul is running in 2016!

How do I know this?

I'm using the laws of common sense, deduction and rational;

1. He has run for president three times -- each time he has been clear about what his "chances" are of winning the nomination. (Slim)

2. He has run for president three times -- each time he has been clear about his intentions of using the debate stage as an opportunity to educte his fellow Americans.

So, if the above is true -- why would he NOT run in 2016?

Can you image Ron, Rand, Judge Nap and Gary Johnson all on the stage at once?

Think about it.

Downvotes? I don't get it...

Why would someone downvote this thread?? The good doctor running again would be GREAT!! He would be able to promote the ideas of liberty and maybe the nomination would go to Rand since he's more "popular" with the mainstream, but the apple doesn't fall far from the tree and I think that any "debate" with Ron and Rand in it against the "status quo" would do wonders in opening up the eyes of the sheeple.

Beware the cult of "government"...

And if ( God Forbid )

He, in his dotage should go to his well deserved rest on the campaign trail, who then will ask his precious wife if we've permission to prop him up and lip sync untill victory is finally ours?
Would it not be better to do what he taught us to do, to take over at the ground floor, then the next, and so on untill " they " are pushed out by our sheer volume? Perhaps if we'd the luxury of time, but I think we do not.

I'd vote for the Judge, but I will not support Rand.

That would be a debate I would LOVE to see.That is the way debates in america SHOULD be....trying to decide who is the best candidate,as opposed to deciding who's going to do the least amount of damage!

Well ron wins delegates and Rand wins delegates

maybe the two together would lockout any others. Frothy is the GOP's pick for bowing out for mitt.

I really doubt if Ron is going to run again, I hope I am wrong.

Gold standard: because man can not be trusted to control his greed

You'd be wrong.

Well, you know, the girl on Bloomberg referred to him as

who said that Napolitano is running? I havent heard that.

There is a movement to draft

There is a movement to draft him:

He hasn't said yes, but he has been open to the idea.

Andrew Napolitano for President 2016!

I remember my first pipe dream...


As Much as I would love for this to do be true, it is not. Ron is all for his son winning. They all got something big in stock for us.

Whichever he ends up doing, I

Whichever he ends up doing, I think it's pretty clear that our good buddy Ron has something up his sleeve... the man is making his power moves as we speak. They just can't shut this guy up, and it's my personal opinion/gut instinct that he perhaps feels a very serious obligation to use the momentum that he has previously built through his prior runs, authority positions, and general activism to become at a minimum a major player in the dialogue come 2016.

Not running

Ron Paul is not running

Judge Nap is not running

Rand Paul is running, I think.

Both Ron and the Judge will openly support Rand Paul, I know.

He's Too Old

I know this will be voted down, but it's what I'm thinking. I seriously want a liberty candidate to vote for. I thought Rand Paul would be it, but I'm not entirely sure now.

But the thing is, I want a badass candidate not just a great person. I know this might sound bad or something, but it's just what we need. We need someone who can debate, argue and turn the progressive's arguments back around on them. I love Ron Paul, the man is a hero of mine, but let's be real - he's simply not a great politician or candidate.

I wish Rand were more libertarian because he would be perfect. :( But Ron is getting too old and his voice sounds rather shrill now. Looks and age do matter. We have a tough enough message to get through the wall, without trivial things like that slowing us down. Maybe we should work to get Peter Schiff and Judge Napolitano to consider running?

Don't Worry

Rand is the one we want!!

I am Ron Paul

I'm feeling the same way. I

I'm feeling the same way. I really look to him as an intellectual leader now more than someone who would be a good choice to represent the movement in a political capacity.

An Intellectual Leader Is A Good Choice To Represent ...

...the movement in a political capacity. But I don't think Ron will be running again, unfortunately.

I thought we all agreed not

I thought we all agreed not to post any more hyperbolic factually devoid threads anymore?

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

I just had to comment

"I thought we all agreed"
And how did we go about doing that?
What are you an authoritarian socialist? -joke

Has any candidate

Announced his running mate at the beginning of the primary? Ron and Rand.

You came out of months of silence to post this?

Judge Nap

The judge would be my pick OVER ANYONE.

I think Judge Nap has specifically said that HE WILL NOT RUN though =(

And the judge is a bachelor, so that would be pretty unprecedented even if he did run.

James Buchanan.

The Judge is my first choice for whatever office he would would run, especially here in NJ. But, he has made it clear that he has no interest in running for office.

Only one President was a bachelor. James Buchanan. And I'm not even sure I spelled his name correctly.

I don't see this happening. I

I don't see this happening. I think that Rand will probably run and Ron will not run against his own son. I do hope to see Judge Andrew Napolitano run for president. I would be more inclined to vote for and donate to the Judge.

I logged in just to minus this post

Well if he did.

Just for the sake of saying so.
He would have to have a new campaign Mgr. That would be a plus. Since Jesse will probably be in on Rand's bus. Hey that rhymes!!!! :)

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

Ron Paul is going to campaign tirelessly for his son just like my father would do for me. Why do you think he just stopped in the primary states and went all in on the local GOP caucuses . It was to set is his son up to be his legacy and would do nothing to under mind him.

i would vote for Ron or Rand

Although I wish he would,

I don't see him running against Rand, his own son, and now that he's retired and resting after the exhaustion of 2 consecutive campaigns while simultaneously holding a congress seat, I honestly don't see him in any hurry to dive back into the cesspool of biased media hatred, bright lights, and high energy no-rest travel and chaos.

Face it guys, he's getting older, and probably enjoys finally spending time with his family and grand children.

He got his message out, and still does it on the side, but it's up to those of us that have heard the message now.

I thought about it....

I thought about it.... and.... he is NOT running... now vote me down!

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

I did because..

You requested me to do it. :)
