There are many factors to consider when deciding who you would have lead you into combat. Who is this person? Why are they doing this? Do they have
ulterior motives? Where do I stand with this person? My family? People I don't or the leader doesn't know? Does this person come from a rich
background, middle class, or poor? Is he capable under pressure and able to give orders while people are dying around him?
None of the people you posted fit these criteria. Ron Paul maybe a good politician but he certainly isn't a soldier or a leader of men. The rest of
the people you posted are actors. Who cares what they can do? They maybe good at playing a soldier on the big screen, but in reality have never
participated in a harsh conflict in their life. Also as actors, they tend to have huge egos and self-worth. A leader needs to be able to put himself
before his troops. I can't really see any actor capable of this or at least most.
In the end I would choose an unknown man. Neither you nor I know the name of this man yet. He will demonstrate that he knows what he is doing by
leading by example and inspiring his men to do great things. While I cannot know everything about this person's life, I do know that would be
fighting on the same side, so at least our political ideologies are most likely aligned (I say most likely because he may have ulterior motives).
Remember this, George Washington was a career soldier and officer. He wasn't a politician or some gasbag who says a lot but never acts. He inspired
leadership in his men even throughout the darkest days of the Revolutionary War. THAT is the man I want to follow.
So for you, he would need to come from the military. Do you deem that likely, considering all the remote bases most such people are currently
occupying abroad, dying in pointless wars in order to save this country already as it is?
Maybe the military could use a little help sometimes, no?

Spoken like a true liberal pacifist.Totaly ignorant of any facts,just spouting the liberal views from MSM.

First where do you get your facts?
U.S military stregnth 1,456,862,000
US troop strength Afganistan 94,000
U.S troop Strength Iraq 92,000
U.S troop strength South Korea 25,800
Yes, I can deem it likely with 1,244,000 troops left.BTW Where did you get the idea most troops were dying at far flung bases?At the common Tail
(Support) to Tooth (combat troops) ratio of 20 to 1 for U.S forces.Out of the troops in afganistan that puts about 4,700 troops in direct combat.
So for you, he would need to come from the military
Yes, A current or past VETERAN would be who I would follow into combat.They know tatics and maneuvers, and have had training for combat.
Who would you follow into battle Michael Moore?
