Lol, only 9 stars for the OP in 3 pages.
Doesn't look like you have the vote from ATS, not that I give a toss either way seeing as I am from the UK.
Perhaps if you actually carried out some thread management here you would convince more folk, you know, reply to members etc. All I see from "Off the grid" is OP's which are pointless replying to as Jesse ignores them, I've only replied here to ridicule though, as I said, I couldn't care less, just enjoying the amusement.

Didn't you and Trump discuss running as prez and vp for the Reform Party at one point?
New York tycoon Donald Trump said Monday he won't run for president because the Reform Party is "SELF-DESTRUCTING" and CAN'T PROVIDE THE SUPPORT A CANDIDATE NEEDS TO WIN. "You could only win the whole thing with a totally unified party," Trump said on NBC's "Today." After months of speculation about a possible candidacy, the colorful and controversial billionaire said he was dissuaded in part by the departure of Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura, who had been an ally of Trump's. He also took a shot at former Republican Pat Buchanan, who is seeking the party's nomination, and his unlikely supporter, leftist activist Lenora Fulani. "THE REFORM PARTY IS A TOTAL MESS," Trump said.
During the months Trump was considering a possible candidacy, he established ties with members of the Reform Party, including then-member and Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura, who announced just last Friday that he was leaving the party, calling it "hopelessly dysfunctional."
"Jesse has left and that's a problem," Trump said.
Trump's decision ensures that two-time presidential candidate Pat Buchanan remains the only declared candidate for the Reform Party nomination.
REFORM PARTY EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE TELLS JESSE VENTURA: RESIGN NOW
DALLAS, TX--In a show of support for Reform Party Chairman Russell J. Verney, the party's Executive Committee tonight voted to support a resolution urging the resignation of Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura. The action came as the result of statements made by Ventura in an interview given to Playboy, which appears in the just-released November issue.
The party leaders met via teleconference in emergency session. The resolution, which passed 6 to 4, with one member not present, states: "The values expressed by Jesse Ventura are not consistent with the values of the Reform Party members. Jesse has put himself in a national leadership position. Along with being a leader goes a responsibility to represent the membership. Jesse's values are out of step with the Reform Party members. Therefore, for the benefit of the members, we urge Jesse Ventura to resign from the Reform Party."
On Friday, Verney sent a letter to Ventura by fax, also asking for his resignation, "for the good of the members." He stated:
"Your comments in the November 1999 Playboy article about religion, sexual assault, overweight people, drugs, prostitution, women's under- garments and many other subjects do not represent the values, principles, or ethics upon which the party was built."
Verney cites a "firestorm" of telephone calls and emails from Reform Party members, expressing anger and disappointment in the statements made by Ventura in the interview, which do not reflect the "high standards for ethics and integrity" which the party works to maintain.
