He would win if he runs as an Independent and accepts only small (< $500) contributions via an internet site.  He then uses relatively free media like his video blog and TV appearances (Fox Business, CNBC, etc.).  By word of mouth, people will find him and his message.  Neither the Democrat or Republican political machines could silence him.  Any publicity that his opponents would give him would only help him.

The real question:  How will he like being surrounded by a bunch of mostly idiots for the next 6 years.

kdakota, I have heard some rumors about that in the past, but this is a very interesting development. Thanks for the post! Yeah I would strongly consider voting for him too.

I've seen a number of petitions and stuff to try to get him to run, but this is the first time I've actually seen him address the issue.

Frankly, as much as a lot of people would like to see him run, I'd be surprised if he actually did.  He's got too much riding on EuroPac which I'm sure he'd have to divest himself from because it would be seen as a major conflict of interest.  I just think it would cost him too much without enough upside to make it worthwhile.

A more likely scenario would be him financially backing a candidate in his mold or acting like an advisor to said person, like he did with Ron Paul.  One of his best quotes along those lines when asked about his role in the Ron Paul campaign was saying that he was an economic advisor to the only presidential candidate who didn't need an economic advisor.

If he does choose to run, he would likely cash out and go in to gold.
