I like Jesse Ventura and I think he would do a lot of good as the VP but I'm going to have to say that Ron Paul should go with Judge Napolitano.

If Ventura was picked Paul wouldn't have a chance.. Imagine how much fun the MSM would have painting them both as complete loons. Especially airing the Ventura 9/11 conspiracies they would say everything they could. They would have people saying it's a shame he disrespects the victims and etc etc.

I am hoping Paul picks Huntsman. He needs to pick someone he can work with, but that isn't completely obscure. He needs to pick a face kinda. It'd be funny if he punched the MSM in the face and chose Palin lol! I would be so confused.. I voted with the sole intent of avoiding Palin last time.. but now I have decided to vote Paul no matter what..what.. would.. i.. do?

A Ron Paul / Jesse Ventura ticket would be interesting, to say the least, but would it not risk alienating people because of Ventura’s well known conspiracy interests? I mean, like it or not, most Americans are quite turned off by the thought of their possible President (especially since Paul would be 76) being a 9/11 truther, believer in Area 51, etc… Not that I personally find anything objectionable in that but, I am not the majority of Americans either.

Nevertheless, I suspect a Paul victory, even if he loses the General election, would dramatically change American politics for the better. It could truly introduce a new American right, much the same way Barry Goldwater ushered in Movement Conservatism culminating in the election of Ronald Reagan. This new right would drive the Neoconservatives out of their comfy secure jobs with a constant paycheck; they will fight that tooth and nail. As a commenter on a website I frequent said:

“A paleo-con is someone who did not get the memo that America 1) exists for "international bankers" 2) exists to kill Arabs for Plucky Little Israel and 3) is a hotel for whomever needs a section8 voucher.”

ok, I agree, it might be a novel idea, but more things considered- strategically there could be a better choice for VP. A Paul/DK ticket could appeal to a lot of the Dems and indys not crazy bout Obama. A Paul/Romney ticket however might consolidate the GOP. Ha. But that would never happen. Never say never I guess?

Yes. Napolitano would be my first choice for a VP. That man knows what is going on. The Judge is an honorable man, so much so that I am surprised that he is allowed on Fox "news."

That being said, a Paul/Ventura ticket would get my vote as well. As has been stated before, however, the media would have a field day. Crying shame they have so much influence over the populace.

I am very dissapointed in Jesse. I thought that he cared about world peace but if he is backing Ron Paul who stated "let Iran have a nuke" then apparently he isnt worried about nuclear war in the middle east. To bad

If Ron Paul has any hope of winning he needs to have a running mate that is recognizable and not for being an ex wrestler/host of a conspiracy theorist show. I think ATS supporters of Ron Paul forget that he has to appeal to an entire nation, not just us. Yeah I realize Ventura has other accomplishments, but he is a horrible choice if you want to see Paul in office. One dark horse is enough.

That being said, Paul/Domo 2012!


I'm afraid I agree with this 100%. I liked Jesse when he was Governor of Minnesota, but I think he lost his credibility when he made the TV show, and started frequenting the AJ show. I don't think he would help the ticket at this point, I think he would drain it and make it seem even more kookier.

Paul has some real solutions, and some great ideas, and he needs to pursue them seriously, not gimmicky.

Paul/Huntsman might work. Paul/Kucinich might even work. Paul/Johnson? Paul/Napolitano? Paul/Rubio?

There are a lot of ways he could go that would bring him money, attention, and credibility. Ventura isn't one of those ways.

This is a tired old inaccurate argument. Paul does not want to let Iran have a nuke. He understands why they want one, with Israel having 100, and Pakistan and India having them. He wants to open up diplomacy and trade with Iran, and eliminate their need for a nuke. Instead of sanctioning and cornering them and forcing them to trade with our enemies and arm themselves for conflict, instead, we could help move them into the modern world, help with their energy crisis, remove the threats against them, and watch their need for a nuke evaporate.

Iran is no where near Nuke capability, but they are in a very tough energy crisis, and they have oil, but no refining capacity, and they are turning to Russia and China out of necessity, because we are levying sanctions and refusing to negotiate.


Please drop the tired old argument that Paul wants Iran to have a nuke.

I think we can all agree that big business and big bankers run this country. Not Congress and the President. You actually believe that they will let Ron Paul do anything other than by executive order? Ron Paul will be a lame duck President. Also having a man in the Presidency that truly believes that it is ok to allow Iran to have the bomb is just nuts. I think Ron Paul has some fantastic ideas when it comes to getting rid of the greed in government but his foreign policy is way off base.

He has never once implied that he wants to let them have a nuke. Not once. He just can't believe that we took diplomacy off the table and resorted to threats and sanctions instead of finding a mutual solution. He has said a million times that they are no where near nuke capabilities, they can't even make gasoline to run their country.

I agree that he might be a lame duck president, but that is still an improvement over a puppet president. At least we will get 4 years of vetos and stopping the government from expanding even further.

There is also a very good chance that Ron Paul supporters will influence the Congressional and Senate elections like the Tea Party did in 2010, and Paul may have a very empathetic Congress that will go along with his ideas!! Especially if he wins decisively. The politicians will ride his coattails and do whatever is popular and gets them re-elected, so Paul might have some mojo at the beginning of his term, and it will be up to him to build on that.

Cool. Paul to bring all the boys home and Ventura to crack down on corruption from the top. And it should be a little easier without all those executive orders in the way- cause RP wants to eliminate them.

Yeah, I am kinda liking this.


RP/JV 2012!

Anyone running for VP with a 76-year-old man had better be ready for the presidency... I can't believe he said something so stupid.

I'm not sure if I'm voting for Paul or not, but if he picks Ventura, that would make my decision.

As much as I like and respect the guy, he would completely kill Ron's campaign. I mean, they already label him a kook. Now match him with a conspiracy theorist and he would be ripped to shreds by the media and his opponents. He needs to choose his vp very carefully.


Go big or stay home.

Nothing could be better than Jesse in there taking names and shooting video. All in.
