The Ultimate 2012 US Ticket
Imagine towards the end of this year the following ticket: Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich.
Ron Paul is a Republican that is actually a Libertarian. For years, he has been advocating the elimination of the Fed because it’s run by Goldman Sachs and a small cabal of other bankers (and he’s right).
Dennis Kucinich is a Democrat that is accused of being a socialist. For years, he’s been attacking deregulation, tried to impeach George W. Bush and Dick Cheney and was the only Democray opposed to the invasion of Iraq. His 2008 platform was one which would make almost all true progressives and small-l liberals blush with pride.
Together, they offer the perfect balance.
However, if they did seriously consider my advice, I’d offer one other recommendation: run under your own unique banner.
They’ll have to think of a new name other than ‘Libertarian’ or ‘Socialist’.
I have always described myself as a Social Libertarian, which is why the combination of these two exceptional personalities appeal to me, but I’m not sure if this will fit either (or both). I also doubt that it would offer any appeal to the mass of US voters.
So … should we start a naming contest for the new proposed merger of Paul/Kucinich?
Maybe the ‘American Liberty Party’? Or ‘America’s Future Party’?
Here are a couple of links that might be of interest and that support this idea:
