Ed Thompson, the most successful Wisconsin third party candidate since Fighting Bob LaFollette and the Progressives, says he may run for president as a pro-9/11-truth candidate in 2008.

Thompson discussed his potential run today on the Dynamic Duo radio show, http://gcnlive.com. If neither his brother Tommy Thompson nor fellow truth-seeker Ron Paul get the Republican nomination, Thompson said, "somebody will have to do it."

Informed that Ron Paul had spoken out for a new 9/11 investigation, while cautioning that a change of administrations wouldn't solve the 9/11 problem overnight, Thompson said "Why not? Why wait for an investigation?" He insisted that a new, truly independent investigation staffed by 9/11 truth-seekers--"people like you, Kevin"-- should happen ASAP.

Thompson passionately expressed his sense that the nation is in dire straits, that the war must end and the truth must out, and that the major parties are incapable of facing the crisis. "The people are afraid of you, Kevin--they're afraid you may be right (about 9/11)," Thompson said, adding that he had watched several 9/11 truth videos and found them extremely disturbing.

Thompson also spoke of his own spiritual crisis, how he had once been suffering from extreme depression and suddenly encountered "the light" and the knowledge that love was the ultimate reality. He suggested that the USA is approaching a very dark crisis and will only survive if enough people realize that we need to love each other, not demonize, hate and kill. He wondered aloud why a powerful country like the USA, surrounded by oceans and unthreatening neighbors, needs to pursue "defense" by killing people all over the world.

Thompson, who polled 11% of the vote as a Libertarian in the 2002 Wisconsin gubernatorial race, agreed with me that the polls suggest that a third party 9/11truth candidate could make history. Last year 36% of the American people said 9/11 was high treason; this year it must be over 40%. If those 40% vote, they would surely vote for a third party candidate who promised an immediate, no-holds-barred investigation. And an independent who got 40%, leaving each major party candidate with around 30%, would win.

Thompson's brother Tommy, who is also thinking about running for president, could not be reached for comment.
