Excellent Thread and very well written!

I believe I read a post ProfEmeritus made a couple months ago mentioning Kucinich and when I researched him, it made a lot of sense. I'm just worried about what joyride mentioned with the Healthcare Reform. You know the other GOP candidates and MSM will have a field day on that issue. But then again, we've survived all of the other ridiculous attacks and like you said, he could gain a lot of votes.

BTW, I know Ventura is a no-no for VP. I hate to say it but it would derail the campaign. What about Sec. of Defense?

I like Ventura, but definitely a no-no for VP. He has military experience for Sec of Defense, that could work, maybe Chieef of Staff could work too? It would be nice to find him a place.

Press Secretary Ventura would be fun!!

I was sure I posted in the past few days about a Paul-Kucinich ticket and was going to quote my own quote in this thread. However, I can't find it and perhaps didn't post it as I thought I had. A Paul-Kucinich ticket has been on my mind for quite a time though. S&F for saying it here. It's a great idea, if somewhat unusual.

We are beyond the point of doing things the same old way and expecting miracles to happen. It is time to break away from the old mold and try something many might think would never be done. I'm all for Ron and Dennis. I like your cabinet choices as well.

Do something, America. Show the world what can happen when Americans unite for the cause of liberty.

Glad you ended up posting here!


YES, do something, America! The old two-party politics is dead in the water. I'll be surprised if the country can survive another 4 year term of it. I was surprised when Obama got all the support as a newcomer in 2008, but the country was just starved for some fresh ideas, and we lapped him up! Then, he turned out to be just a smoother version of the same old system. Then, I was sure the country was on the verge of riots leading up to the 2010 election, but the Tea Party victories bought a little reprieve and renewed people's hopes for a little longer.

Now, here we are in 2012, with Obama failing at all his campaign promises, and half the Tea Party Reps turning their backs on their promises and going along with the party line instead. We are right back to having no hope, plenty of pain, less liberty, bigger government, and smaller wallets!

So, the new Hope is Ron Paul, and it seems he has the integrity to actually follow through on his promises. And it seems we have a guy in Kucinich that can see the same writing on the window from the other side of the glass! What an awesome combination they could make!

If this became a reality i would probably cry, they are probably the only two people who know what the hell they are doing! If paul wins the nomination he should pick either Kucinich or Chris Criste NJ governer.

I forgot all about Christie! He would make a pretty good addition to a Paul cabinet somewhere!


Again, as VP he doesn't really accomplish anything historic, but he is a high quality candidate that could serve well in the cabinet, and then make his own presidential run to carry the torch!

Great thought, but haven't some states implemented laws that state if you run on a party's primary ticket you can't be a candidate for another (or no) party in the general election?

As much as I would absolutely love to see a Paul/Kucinich ticket, it wouldn't work. It would be political suicide for Paul. Republicans wouldn't vote for him. People are so divided by party lines that they will not see the benefits of this sort of ticket. We have a long way to go before we ever reach that point again where red and blue aren't so vehemently against each other.

Good question? I hadn't heard that before, but it is interesting. I don't think it would apply here, because Kucinich hasn't been on any primary tickets this go-round. And a VP is an appointed spot anyway, it isn't an elected position, it is really only the President that is elected.

Paul/Pickens 2012?
Any thoughts on this ticket?
As much as I would like to see Kucinich, I am not sure it would solidify the votes. I also feel that if Paul were to nail the choice, the sooner he could announce it the better. And of course bring in someone not currently running. I think running as a team would be very effective. For those who may be on the fence about Paul it may ease some feelings to know who the vp will be as far in advance as possible.

I don't know much about Pickens? Care to fill us in?

As for this, I entirely agree!

Also, on my way home from work just now, I saw a brand new Ron Paul 2012 billboard on a main 6 lane divided road here in Tallahassee! Probably the busiest road in town at 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.! That was a nice sight! I tried to snap a pic, but then the light turned green and I dropped my phone, LOL!

I won't "accept it," but I do expect it.


If the GOP goes with a stuffed suit like Romney, then the voters won't turn out in mass. He'll get his hardline party voters, but that is about it. Obama will energize his crowd, and they will show up in mass. The Independents and 3rd Party folks will vote for the conglomeration of Libertarian and Constitutionalists on the ballot, and the whole thing ends in a big Obama landslide victory!

That is exactly my reasoning behind making this thread!
My hope is that it gets to the front page, and some of the suspected ATS readers that are in the campaigns notice it, and take it seriously enough to figure it into their campaign planning.

I am very afraid that you will be exactly right, and the huge ego of the GOP makes them think anyone they put up will defeat Obama. In fact, I've heard that very thing said in every debate so far, but it is a huge mistake to think that way!

He would bring a ton of financing to the campaign along with a vision for alternative energy. Which would fit well with paul's foreign policy plans. Independents, republicans and democrats would have to give this ticked serious consideration.

Please read entire article...of course there is more info all around the inter webs if you are interested.

Search T. Boon Pickens

Kucinich and Paul could be an unprecedented breath of fresh air in a lot of ways. I'd only hope that Kucinich would balance out some of Paul's semi-insane/laissez-faire economic policies. That kind of pair up, so long as they had more/less even pull, could be a great game changer.

If I could tweak it, I'd make Kucinich president and Ron Paul VP.

I agree. The Judge is a great guy, and he is doing a lot for the campaign, but he doesn't bring in any additional voters. I think a Cabinet Position would be in his future with Paul. Instead of the Judge as VP and Kucinich in the cabinet, as most conventional thinking would have it, I propose the opposite to really shake up the campaign. Kucinich as VP and the Judge in the cabinet.


There's a prime position for the Judge...Attorney General.

I fully support a Paul/ Kucinich ticket for the WIN!

Second line.

I've thought about a Paul/Kucinich ticket myself. I think Kucinich would bring electibility to the table. As much as I like Ventura, a Paul/Ventura ticket simply will not get anywhere. But Jesse as Sec of Defense! LOL! Bring it on! I like the idea of the Judge Nap as Atty General too. I would definitely vote for a Paul/Kucinich ticket.
