Just a simple question. I'm not trying to make any points, but I'm just curious as to the attitude of Ron Paul supporters. Rand Paul already stated that he would be 'honored' to run as VP nominee with Romney. I think Rand Paul as VP makes a lot of sense. He would bring in tea party voters, and would add the Southern balance that Romney so desperately needs. And he would bring in at least some Ron Paul supporters, whose numbers are not insignificant as proven by the primaries.

No. I would however lose all respect for Rand Paul were he to run with Romney.

I have said this for months, if this is the case, it wouldn't change anything for me. I do not want to see the Paul name tarnished with bad policy. That means a VP slot, or even a dream cabinet that favors true small-government values. I would much rather vote for Obama, someone who I am equally disgusted in, but at least we'll have no incumbents in 2016.

Ayn Rand is a popular author who is perceived to be a Libertarian, and Murray Rothbard is one of the Austrian School heavyweights and you could call him the American Ludwig von Mises.

As for the poll, I picked the 2nd. Rand would not pick to be VP anyway. Any thinking person knows a VP is a powerless position anyway. That's what happens when you rely too much on the mainstream media

It's a stupid question. Rand Paul would never run with Mitt Romney and already said so.

Yep. Perceived as such by those oblivious to the fact that she loathed and despised libertarianism.

No... I'd actually begin to think the Rand sold out.
