Bush, a Rockefeller Republican). If Ron Paul were to gain the nomination in 2012, wouldn't it be great symbolism if he chose Barry Goldwater Jr. as his running mate?

The younger Goldwater campaigned for Paul in New Hampshire in 2008. A group of people unconnected with either Congressman Paul or former Congressman Goldwater placed a ticket of the 2 of them on the ballot for the 2008 general election in Louisiana, which finished 3rd in that state.

If the GOP were to nominate a Paul/Goldwater ticket to run against Obama and Biden in 2012, who would you vote for? Wouldn't it be nice to have a choice, not an echo, for once?
