...looking to his latest book that was published this year...
"Don't Start the Revolution Without Me!"
i can see your point...
"In a fast-paced and often humorous narrative, Ventura pulls no punches in discussing our corrupt two-party system, the disastrous war in Iraq, and
what he suspects really happened on September 11. He provides personal insights into the Clinton and Bush presidencies, and elaborates on the ways in
which third parties are rendered impotent by the country's two dominant parties. He reveals the illegal role of the CIA in states like Minnesota,
sensitive and up-to-date information on the Blackwater security firm, the story of the American spies who shadowed him on a trade mission to Cuba, and
what Fidel Castro told him about who really assassinated President John F. Kennedy. This unique political memoir is a must-read for anyone concerned
about the direction that America will take in 2008."
pulling up the CIA's veil,
breaking up the corporate media monopoly,
making room for a 3rd Party
and honoring an independent 911 investigation...
at the most 911 takes up a quarter of his platform...
so whoever moved your post here is obviously not fully aware of ventura's scope and depth
or let alone, that he seriously considered running for pres this time around
as for my vote... if he ran... i would 1st and foremost worry about his safety,
but would mostly likely vote for him if it didn't mean improving mccain/palin's chances
those two scare the crap out of me
as for my vote in 2012...
in terms of politics that is a long long long time from now
a whole lot can happen from now till then
much like this approaching election
you never really know for sure what variable of the game
will shift in one direction or the other...
month to month... week to week... day to day
or even hour to hour (ie bush & gore in 2000)
