Doing that is exactly what causes the problem. They tell you he doesn't have a chance so you vote against him. It's how the media controls elections. More people are fighting back than they did in 08 and that is exactly why he has higher numbers. That is why he had a second place win. Add yourself to that number. Change people's mind. Fight back a little. He could win if less people bought into the idea you are putting forth here.

OP, you're delusional if this is what you believe.
Why are you asking if Ron Paul would be okay for a VP of Newt? It should be the other way around.
Newt doesn't qualify for the Missouri or Virginia ballot. We may find he doesn't qualify for more in the months ahead. He doesn't have near the numbers Ron Paul has in supporters or poll numbers and potential voters.
It's like asking if Clinton would have been an acceptable VP for Walter Mondale. But you're touting it like Newt is the Great White Hope while dismissing Ron Paul.
I can only surmise you're a victim of the media canards.
And your whole "I'm a Veteran" logic doesn't fit. Ron Paul has the most support from military than all the others combined, and he's a PEACE candidate, who actually SERVED in the military. Newt is a Warhawk...specifically a CHICKEN HAWK...who would have us involved in WW3 before the new curtains were hung in the White House.
Nowhere does it say when I joined the military that I would have to vote with the majority. That is something that is personal and is left to every individual. My choice is Newt whether you like it or not.
Does everyone that supports Paul watch MSN? I see a lot of people blaming MSM but I can tell you that is not one of the stations that I care to watch.
I would support Paul as a VP but nothing else so if it isn't obvious to you yet why I started this thread you will probably never understand.
I also the put talk about WW3 in the same category as Y2K and 2012 end of the world fairytells.edit on 29-1-2012 by Grimpachi because: (no reason given)
So you support a Pro War HAWK? Which Newt himself admits to being? You can look at Newt Gingrich's record and see that he philosophically supported practically every single war that has come up , and every war proposed for the future.
He would most certainly have his eye on Iran as one of his first acts. He himself hints to that. You're ignoring the very guy you say you'd support. So yes, WW3 is very probable under a Gingrich presidency.
You support a CHICKEN HAWK, who is a Neoconservative Imperialist Aggressionist when it comes to foreign policy, who is backed by Zionist money (a foreign influence) and who panders to Corporate interests.
Why would Ron Paul take a seat under HIM?

Yes RP supporters feel the need to convert everyone over to RP and feel the need to educate us poor Sheeple who are paid gov't shills. Please, the OP was asking a very simple question, that much like RP himself, RP supporters feel the need to walk all over it.
OH GOD, "How can you even think of such a scenario?" Well I can ask you, why not. Or in that manner, how can you even think the MSM will allow a RP presidency? If you theories about voter fraud and MSM coverage are true!
RP as president is a wet dream, if he wins the nomination magically. I would vote for him, if he gets VP slot I would be behind that. Although I could see a Gingrich/Cain ticket as well.
