I really like this guy... I can't help it, cause he reminds of myself. I also have no problem telling people the truth, and care very little what you think of me for doing so...

This video clip that I found of a meeting that Jesse Ventura had with some local media people is amazing! In it he exposes the CIA's role in rigging our local and national governments. He tells a story of the day after his surprise election to the governorship of Minnesota, and the subsequent meeting that he had with the CIA. They wanted to know how he won, because they had obviously rigged the election, like they do all elections, and weren't expecting his victory. He had a high security clearance, since he was a Navy Seal, and clearly didn't back down to these people. He also tells about his trip to Cuba. Very interesting stuff!

Even though I never met the guy, I like him. I get a good vibe from him and that is good enough for me. Now, I'm going to watch the videos. He really is a surprising guy.

He's a good man, unfortunately he's not an economist and he has poor business skills. This leads him to support some socialist ideology.

I think he is a great man, he's not corrupt, and he does what he thinks is right.

However some of his views are unconstitutional and therefore dangerous to personal liberty and the economic health of this country.

Nobodies perfect, but at least I know where he stands. I don't think he's trying fool me into killing myself or trying to steal my money. I suppose that makes him a thousand times better than any other politician that I know of.

Anyhow, the point of this thread is to show that someone that wasn't supposed to be on the inside got on the inside and exposed what is actually going on behind closed doors in our State and national governments. He's quoted as saying that behind closed doors these guys (Republicans and Democrats) are all good buddies, then the cameras come on and they suddenly hate each other. He compares it to the fakery of his former profession: wrestling.

I'm not jabbing, but would you be so kind as to point out some of his unconstitutional views? Some of his socialist ideology?

As far as I am aware, he's a strict libertarian, which is about as far from socialism as you get.

No, he is not a strict libertarian.

He follows much of the democratic agenda.

He ran as a democrat, was elected as a democrat, and carried out socialist policies.

I don't know how to upload youtube videos to ATS media, given that you can't save them to your computer, or at least I haven't figured out how to do so.

I remember when I heard he was running and was into politics and I thought, "Oh, here we go, this is gonna be ridiculous". I was very skeptical about him.

But I'm so glad to be wrong on that.

I think he's a completely genuine person - and very different from any other American politician. He's the kind of guy I wish we had here in the UK.

I know he does irk some people, but I think his honesty (or at least what I intrepret as honesty) is something unrivalled in US politics.

I search youtube but they are all copies of part 1 and 2

You're right, I was mistaken about his ties to the democratic party.

However I'm not mistaken about him having many socialist view points that are inline with the democratic party.

I would not consider him a strict libertarian. I do consider him a good man though

He ran as a democrat, was elected as a democrat, and carried out socialist policies.



He ran as a Reform Party candidate. In his book "DO I STAND ALONE," he says he considers himself 100% Libertarian, albeit, I don't know how such a thing could really exist.
