I think a fun race would be...

Independent: Jesse Ventura/Wayne Allen Root
Democrat: Dennis Kucinich/Howard Dean
Republican: Mike Huckabee/John Thune

That would be one of hell of a showdown!

But my pick is either Dennis Kucinich or Ralph Nader.

I would be quite enthusiastic about a Wayne Allen Root / Ron Paul ticket. I list Paul as VP because he is quite old at this point. I hope to see Paul run as VP with another libertarian viewpoint taking the driver seat.

Ron Paul without a doubt. Not because he's a Republican, but because I agree with a lot of what he supports.

Although Jesse Ventura sure would stir up a lot of dust.

Dems: Bayh/Clark

Reps: Brown/Palin

Libs: Dobbs/Root

Good post. Makes one think. I'll be honest. I don't know anything about Mr. Root (But I will).

I would not vote...

Dennis Kucinich was bought off on healthcare so I would no longer vote for him. The only politician I would vote for is Ron Paul, unfortunately he is in his 70s...

Ron Paul for President with Jesse Ventura as Vice President (or maybe vice versa)

At least Ron Paul's accusing America's attackers on the floor of the U.S. House, he's communicating honestly with citizens about REAL events and concerns in our government and society via regular YouTube uploaded videos, his bill to kill the FED has passed both houses of Congress, he wants to end America's wars, he wants to put our money back on the gold standard where it belongs, he's against supporting other nations when our own people have real needs, he's denounced the CIA for admitting to assassinating American citizens abroad and domestically and after reminding the CIA that American citizens are the ones they are to protect he has called for a halt in the CIA's American citizen assassination activities, and he speaks the truth about the Bildeberg bankers and has recognized that America is experiencing the rise of a Fascist Police State.

Ron Paul stands for small government, negotiation and diplomacy instead of war, fiscal responsibility, individual liberties, strong national defense, and very little govenment regulation and intrusion.

If the 2012 election were held tomorrow, of that group, I'd very likely vote for Mike Pence. I might also vote for Sarah Palin, whom I like well enough, but the real incentive here would be to watch the collective nervous breakdown of her detractors if she were elected. At least in that way, it would have some entertainment value.

I'd vote for 1970 "Colossus: The Forbin Project" - for 'world control'.

Enough already, with corrupted/corruptible human-based institutions of power over the masses - whether they be: governmental, economic, or religious.

Jesse Ventura/Lou Dobbs with Ron Paul as Treasury Secretary.

That would fix the hell out of this country.

Jesse Ventura to uncover the dirt and sweep up town.
Lou Dobbs for being the only MSM personality to uncover the NAU in 2006.
Ron Paul as treasury secretary to end the fed and bring us back to Gold.

I'd vote for Dennis Kucinich, but I don't like his gun control stance.

Alan Grayson, but he's not on your list.

Ron Paul if he was younger and on the ballot.

There's only one option left of Americans, they've tried everything, now here's my proposal.

When an American Idol winner is announced, blind fold them and set a map of the US in front of them. Let them blindly throw a dart at the map.

Still with me? Good... here's where the monkey comes into play. Put the monkey on a plane and fly to the spot on the map, strap a parachute on the him and kick the F-er out....

Still with me on this? Excellent....

...after he lands and walks around aimlessly, the first person who's hand he holds, IS our new Prez.
