Hear! Hear! Make Ron Paul Trump's Secretary of State/Treasury

 Via comment by Quartermain on Trump's Insurgency creates our Tahrir Square Momen...

 

Recently neocon Jennifer Rubin stated she is concerned that Trump might want Ron Paul for the role of Secretary of State in his cabinet. Ron Paul has recently addressed this, saying this is an unlikely scenario.

 Yet the entirety of Trump's candidacy has been made up of unlikely scenarios. And while Ron Paul might not align with Donald Trump politically, the similarities of their candidacies are striking; both didn't buy into special interests, both exposed corruption on national TV, both weren't afraid to speak their mind, both are fierce critics of the current foreign policy of the United States and both made the establishment shake in their boots.

This leaves me with the thought of "why not?". Why would Trump not want Ron Paul in his cabinet? Ron Paul has proven to be a capable statesman and a patriot, and has a large following. Trump could be compelled to bring him in both because Trump wants a competent and intelligent cabinet and because it will draw many voters to him.

  1. I'd much rather see Ron appointed head of the FED.

  2. David Stockman is another that has been mentioned.

    Ron Paul has been too critical of Trump. I'm not sure Trump would appreciate that. Trump wants team players.

    I would of course like Ron Paul's selection.

  4. Good stuff! Let him wear both hats. That's a flight of fancy--but wouldn't it be great! And Sarah Palin for the Department of Education, as she's stated she'd do away with that socialist boondoggle. How about Ron Paul for Treasury, Alan Keys for State, and Lt. Col. Allen West for Defense? And something for Sheriff Joe Arpaio, like the FBI, since he's such tenacity.
