Jesse Ventura thinking about presidential bid

http://minnesotaindependent.com/91266/ventura-thinking-about...

Following dismissal of his lawsuit against the Transportation Security Administration for security measures like mandatory pat-downs, former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura told reporters Friday that he hasn’t ruled out a run for higher office.

MPR reports that the current host of Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura said he plans to refer to the United States as the “Fascist States of America.”

“The only way that I could change it I guess would be to run for president and win it,” Ventura said. “Is that what it will take?” When asked if he’s running for the White House, Ventura said “I’m thinking about it. That’s all though.”

We don't need him, we need Ron Paul

And that is highlighted by the fact that he isn't aware enough, isn't humble enough, to throw his weight behind Ron Paul now.

America is devolving into a police state, and a hero comes along to save us (Ron Paul), and Ventura acts like that is of no consequence. That shows his lack of substance.

Ventura is doing Ron a solid.

Ventura runs as Libertarian:
1) Ron LOOSES the GOP nomination, decides to go Libertarian for the General Election. Ventura, as the Lib nominee, decides to step down into the VP or Sec Def. And Ron Paul is voted in via acclimation at the Libertarian National Convention in Las Vegas.

2) Ron WINS the GOP nomination, and Ventura as the Libertarian nominee, brokers an agreement and the Libertarian Party decides not to run a candidate, which would siphon Paul votes. Constitutions and Greens follow suit, shoring up almost every Independent voters to vote for Ron Paul.

3) Ron LOOSES GOP nomination and DOESN'T go 3rd party(retires), fully supports Ventura's Candidacy. Campaign for Liberty dumps all its cash on Ventura.

Either way Ventura running for and winning the Libertarian nomination would be benefitial to Ron Paul/Liberty.

I know the big worry is Independents voting in the Libertarian primary for Ventura when they could be voting for Ron in the GOP primary. But I think there are enough Libertarians in Closed-Primary States who will help along Ventura, when they cant vote in the GOP Primary by law.

AND, Ventura running would get a lot of people excited about the election. People will be talking about having a REAL election.

Those willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both.

If Jesse runs it means

that he is not a Paul supporter. Why would anyone here support and opponent of Dr Paul?

It's like Bachman. If she is a Tea Party Republican then why don't she drop out and endorse Paul who was the catalyst that spawned the Party.

Jesse even dedicated one of his books to Ron Paul

If Ron Paul wins GOP nomination Jesse would not run against him.

Jesse seems like a pretty big statist to me

Every interview I've ever heard him in he talks an awful lot about government programs and socialism. In fact I would say in many ways he is to the left of your average Democrat. There's no way I'd vote for him. However if he were to run he might take some votes away from Obama.

jesse v just blew his chances

jesse v just blew his chances when he said today that he wants to persue Mexican citizenship.

chalk it up to rage

If I had that kind of a case thrown out. I would be soooo pissed off I might say something similar.

To defuse the Mexican thing, all he has to do is say:

"No Sean, I wasn't serious about Mexico, I was merely illustrating that once our Court system goes, human dignity goes, sound money goes, because this Government has taken the Consitution from our Principle document into being meer guidelines for a Kleptocracy, you might as well ask for Mexican Citizenship. But no Sean, I'm in this to win because I believe America has one more fight left in her, and its up to Americans and their sacred vote wether we will take back our Government and restore our freedoms...or wether we will go silently into the long night of Fascism. America has one more chance at Freedom, and thats why I am running for President."

Those willing to trade their freedom for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both.

Would he run the White House from Mexico?

:"Ventura also said that he and his wife plan to pursue their Mexican citizenship, according to Politics in Minnesota."

"I support the Declaration of Independence and I interpret the Constitution."

he could leave keyes to the White House for Ron Paul

Our only hope lies in a third

Our only hope lies in a third party run.

Two Parties is Already Two Parties Too Many

A third party will just make us as screwed-up as Europe.

We need to ban ALL political parties.

If Ron Paul thought that he

If Ron Paul thought that he would be doing it. get off this third party BS.

I don't think that is our only hope

I do think that Dr. Paul's support has been radically underestimated by the "polls", however I don't put anything past the establishment as far as them cheating the good doctor out of his nomination. That being the case my dream would be for Dr. Paul to then run third party, choosing Dennis Kucinich as his running mate as the Liberty ticket. Talk about a Dream Team! I think the combo of Paul and Kucinich would be unbeatable!

Dr. Ron Paul is my HERO!

I still have hope Ron Paul can win Iowa

If Ron Paul wins Iowa he would become a front runner.
I am hoping for a very cold snowy January 3rd in IA.
Low voting turnout would help us a lot.
