VP Ron Paul?
As for McCain supporters, without Ron Paul on the ticket somewhere, the Republicans are toast! Get used to saying President Obama maybe with a heaping helping of Hilliary on the side. However, with Ron Paul on the ticket they win by a landslide. Along with Ron Paul comes his hundreds of thousands of supporters and millions upon millions of dollars. McCain would be crazy to lose on purpose with these resources and die-hard voting supporters there for the taking.
Then there is the American people. For them Vice President Ron Paul represents a second chance. Although we all realize McCain is the political opposite of Ron Paul and will pursue the same failed big federal government boondoggles, as the nation and our economy sink unto crisis, vice President Ron Paul will be there to save the day with wise alternatives based on personal liberty. So if McCain somehow goes against thousands of years of history and makes collectivism actually work then his supporters and all of America will get what they want. But should reality still remain in effect like the laws of gravity then should President McCain follow a collectivist strategy and flop miserably, America has a second chance with Ron Paul.
Finally, there is Ron Earnest Paul. This is a lot to ask of the good doctor to run with his political opposite. But he need not compromise his principles in any manner. During his entire time in office he would never need to speak or do anything against his principles. In fact he could take the job under the understanding that he is America's parachute. He would be clear in his opposition to anything unconstitutional and point out where his "running mate" McCain was following a policy of folly. But Ron Paul, though not a McCain supporter would realize that America's future would be best assured with Ron Paul in the White House even as Vice President then the dangers of an Obama/Clinton ticket winning. The doctor must also realize that God and fate are on our side so with Ron Paul a heartbeat away from the presidency I wouldn't want to have McCain's heart. If the situation presents itself Ron - take it! Take the job amigo! Take it but speak clearly for liberty as you always do. Darn it all the collectivists have been crawling their way to the top lying all the way. Why can't you stand up telling the truth to get to the top?
Make no mistake about it - I'd prefer a President Ron Paul now. However, a smart general always has back up plans. The above is a plan B if the good doctor cannot persuade enough delegates to nominate him in September. That is still a possibility because times are changing fast and people are worried.
