Interesting we now have at

Interesting we now have at least 3 threads with the very same subject.

This thread, plus my earlier thread:

Plus SirFelix's:

I get the impression we suddenly have a lot of Jesse Ventura fans.

who doesn't secretly love

the body :P

The squirm

So apparent, so delicious.
Feed the trolls. :)

His best interview so far, and that's saying a lot!

I was just commenting to a friend on how the, "63 Documents the Government Doesn't Want You to Read" tour, Jesse's been doing is AMAZING, and wondering what kind of impact it might have, until I got home to find this thread!

When neo-con, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, welcomed Ventura, and then immediately posed a question about Ron Paul running with him as his running mate, she opened a HUGE opportunity for Jesse to endorse him while remaining true to his independent roots.

When the Governor answer, "He is the only, true, elected official, at the federal level, who puts the people of America first, and not the political parties first.", (much applause).

Haselbeck posed her question about them running as an independents, when Jesse retorts, "...I rethought that, and thought that maybe, if he ran as a Republican, it would cause trouble if he picked an independent like me to be V.P., wouldn't it?"

Hasselbeck jumps in with, "Has he expressed interest, he's coming here in a couple of weeks?"

"Ah, yeah, apparently he was on Alex Jones' radio show, and said he found it very intriguing and that it wasn't out of the question so..."

For that interview, go here:

Soks folla cents!

My how times have changed. :P


English, please?

sock puppets full of sense.

why not suspend judgement a bit.
it's applicable to everything.

Forgive my cultural ineptness, but I still don't get it

Even when you use better language and grammar, I'm not familiar with your phrases enough to know what "it's applicable to."

My only judgment is that, at this point, I'm not sure that I'm missing anything by not knowing what it is you mean in either subject or comments as it relates my post, but thanks for trying.

You're anything but culturally inept.

Most of the hens of The View are culturally inept.
People who masquerade as "normal people" with masters, money and motives are "sockpuppets" or "sockmonkies".

Soks with cents is a just a play on recent internet memes.
Completely agree with you.

Sorry. I'm only cryptic for the sake of it. Many people know what I mean. I should've clarified earlier.


And you're too kind, o most cryptic one

I tried to follow, Prax, but ya' got just too darn enigmatic for me to track with you!

Please consider being kinder to these dear ladies on The View than calling them, "culturally inept".

I only called Elisabeth Hasselbeck a neo-con because I've heard enough phraseology from her on various subjects that framed her world view, to me, that way. When she concluded the interview section with her announcement that the whole audience would each get a copy of, "63 Documents...", she seemed less tenuous than when she opened the interview with Ventura.

And good will back at you, friend.

I actually enjoyed this interview, and I think Jesse did a great

job. The audience really agreed with Jesse on Ron Paul that was very apparent with their applause. This was a 100 times better than the interview with Piers Morgan, or whatever that Brit's name is. I thought for sure Jesse was gonna punch Piers out, I would have if I had been told some of the crappy things Piers had said.

These ladies did their homework, Piers didn't

To the contrary, Jesse did a fine job both times, at least on the things that he knows.

Ventura "came out" as a professing atheist; the first public stance that this lapsed Lutheran has only alluded to before. He said that he adopted it after a George Carlin comedy skit "enlightened" him.

I've hung out with some professing Lutherans recently, and can easily see why some of them might inspire an antithetical belief system, but to believe in the Sun as the source of Life, to the absolute exclusion of a more intelligent Being than himself, Who might have created that sun as easily as every single strand of his own DNA, takes way more faith in his own opinion than I can muster for mine.

SteveMT's picture

Wow!: This was aired on MSM to millions of people?

Pinch me please. This is hard to believe, but what a great day to be a lover of Liberty.

Yup! Saw it on tv so it musta happened lol

You'll have to pinch yourself though since it's a difficult thing for us to do over the internet! hehe

What are you fightin' for?
Caught in the middle?
Freedom is only for those with the guts to defend it!

Pinch yourself

I lament the half-believers. This is happening. Get your arse off your chair. Apr 9th, I'm going to NYC Mind the Gap in Union square to sow seeds and cultivate some serious shitbaggery. GOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOGOFOFOFOFOFOFOFOFOFOFOFOFOFOFO, you know what I mean. :P

We are all Lemmings!

We are all Lemmings!

Woot Woot!


I think that may have been

I think that may have been JV's best recent interview so far.


Great post,

I didn't see this post, and created my own with this very same clip, sorry. I would delete my post if I knew how, but oh well, its important for this group to see that WE ARE WINNING!

Dr. Paul's message is WINNING!

Watch the clip, listen to the audience reaction when Jesse tells them that Ron Paul is the only one fighting for the American People.

Totally awesome.

Keep up the great work people.

Never surrender!

Over the last 4 years.

I've noticed:
- It is no longer taboo to speak the truth.
- The message of liberty is transitioning from a fire to an inferno.
- The problems we face are now so clear that it's laughable.
- People are waking up in droves and the media curtain is becoming ever more transparent.

I think this is it. Last cycle liberty gained a lot of ground. This battle, the people of America will win and that will turn the tide of this greater world war like nothing we've ever witnessed in history before.

Pandemonium is staring the world in the face and it's when everything is crazy that we should advocate calm and direction. Throw all differences into the wind and focus on the creation after destruction. Creation by the people's hands and no one else.

We break the banks in people's minds, everyone wins.
That's real politics.
RP2012 baby. It's gonna be a crazy couple of years.

Right on!

Right on!

I wish he'd had the balls to say,

"Vote for the PERSON. Investigate ALL the candidates, not just the ones of your preferred party, or gender or race. As you may realize now, Obamao, while the first black president, is just a slave to special interests like all the rest. If you would really research Ron Paul, you'd find out what a brilliant man he is & why he should be our next president."

I would have loved it if he'd said that & then had Whoopi & Sherry pull the race card. They LOVE to do that.

Hell yea!

Go Jesse....Go Ron Paul!!!!

IF anyone was ever wondered about "The View" 's production

philosophy, you really need to stop wondering. They had Alex Jones on their show, allowed him to completely run over their entire show, and still booked Jesse Ventura.

And this, AFTER repeatedly running TSA-focused shows where they are all for the TSA or whatever, show after show after show. In fact some of the hosts said they would trade security for liberty, on purpose.

I think the DP crowd who understand show-producer quotas will understand that "The View" 's producer values episode correspondence whether positive or negative, as well as some peer pressure to get controversial guests on. If they get that huge volume of either positive or negative response in they are doing their job.

They are ALSO doing their recent job of associating Ventura with a Ron Paul run, which I oppose.

and that really matters how?

same team. same goal.
quit dividing.

dude... W T F is your problem?


Ventura kicked some serious ass!

Awesome he keeps addressing the Fed in his recent TV appearances. I think these ladies on the View have no idea what the Fed is, which is why they didn't attempt to cut him off when he started talking bout it as most commentators do.

Another great thing about the show

is the little neo con blonde said that Ron Paul is going to be there in a couple of weeks!!!!

The best thing about that

The best thing about that interview was that he sent everyone home with the book. It may jostle some people. The second best thing was when he said he did not have to agree with RP on everything. I sure do not want him as VP though..not enough patience and diplomacy. I also would not call him a kind man.
