Barr asks Ron Paul to be running mate

http://www.ajc.com/news/content/news/stories/2008/09/10/barr...

"Barr sent Paul a letter Tuesday asking him to be his vice presidential nominee. Barr already has a running mate, Wayne Root of Las Vegas. Root said in the letter he would step aside for Paul.

Paul has not responded to the request, Davis said. Ike Hall, who coordinated Paul’s campaign in Georgia, called Barr’s invitation “terribly interesting,” but added that Paul made clear he has no intention of running as anything other than a Republican this year.

Hall called Barr’s decision to skip the Paul press conference “unfortunate. What Ron Paul is trying to do is, he’s not endorsing any other person. What he’s endorsing is an idea.”

Paul would have to give up his seat in congress

Paul stated on Glenn Beck yesterday that if he ran on the Libertarian ticket, he would likely lose his congressional seat. That seems like too great a sacrifice for a long-shot chance to be vice president.

Are we sure about this?

Lieberman is an Independant now isn't he? No longer a Dem? So if McCain had picked him, would he lose his seat?

This stuff gives me a migraine.

Tolerance is the virtue of the man who no longer has anything to believe in....

Paul's son Rand

can easily win that congressional seat

Question?

Is Rand ready to step into his Dad's shoes? I haven't heard much about his intent on running....or is this just wishful thinking on our part?

Rand made some great speeches

and radio interviews also he is the president of Kentacky tax payers organization.
I think he is ready he has the potential to be JFK type leader

Ron should accept VP offer

and his son Rand Paul should run for Congress instead of Ron
therefore paving the way for Jesse Ventura/Rand Paul 2012 ticket

If McLame could consider Liverman...

If McLame could consider Liverman, an "independent" Democrat, for his VP choice, why not the LP candidate join with a Republican?

If Leiberman had been chosen by McCain, he would not have had to resign his senate post (unless they won), and so the same would be true for Ron Paul.

Seriously, from Bob Barr's point of view, what's the reason for Ron Paul to turn down an opportunity to be on the ticket most clearly in favor of liberty?

Hello mosmom

Pretty much Barr is now for sure a Neo-Con Plant. He is trying to disband the Revolution and always has been. His actions yesterday all but spit in the face of the Freedom movement and was in line with McBama and the Establishment status quo of War.

You seem to now be getting this message a day later. That's okay their are many of us here that know what happened. Feel free to ask.

Thanks

I was here yesterday, but I didn't see this news! LOL

And what I'm reading from Barr was that he didn't want to damage or dilute his "message" or "views" by appearing with McKinney? Is that a valid point with anyone?

Tolerance is the virtue of the man who no longer has anything to believe in....

yes

Nader and McKinney are tax and spend socialists
Ron Paul made a mistake dividing the movement

LOL!

The political string pullers that own the 2 party system, and sent Barr out to dilute the revolution, and are really getting desperate now.

It appears that the good doctor is one step ahead of them...

I'll vote Third party, but never for a now "former neocon" and ex CIA mole.

The Doc

Yes, the Doc seems to be one step ahead of everybody......and very humbly I might add
