So let me get this straight...

He said its fine for self defense, but then contradicts himself when it comes to Conceal Carry in the theater. THIS is the problem with his argument, he is inconsistent and is simply out to take away rights. They will NEVER be satisfied with our gun laws. They just want slaves, not citizens.

The order of the video's is wrong

PT 2. is actually pt.3 and pt 3 is actually pt 2.

red coats coming on OUR T.V., and Tellin us WERE CRACKERS!

Pier Morgan is the antithesis of balanced

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

in the second clip, 4:10 in... whose on the mic laughing?

is it an audience member? hilarious by the way

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

Slightly crackers oh?

Notice how at the end Piers said Ventura had been slightly crackers. That's just a last minute attack on a person to try to dissuade people from listening to his arguments. That was totally unnecessary and not at all the response of a professional or courteous interviewer such as someone like Charlie Rose for example.

That's the one thing I'm grateful to all the Ron Paul supporters for, as a result of their support the media had to stop using such personal attack words otherwise they were insulting a lot of people, and eventually they were overwhelmed by the support and stopped doing it and had to listen to Dr. Paul and actually report on the arguments in a more unbiased way. That alone was worth all the work, because now after listening the arguments are filtering from the ground up into the main stream of politics and discussion.

They stabbed at Jesse because Jesse doesn't have that much visible support, but when Jesse asked everyone to clap if they thought his ideas were not crazy they clapped and it seemed Piers was the only one by unanimous clap who thought Jesse's ideas were crazy. Of course with the persuasive power of his position and the microphone Piers still made a knee jerk attempt to try to tell every one of us how we should think about Jesse Ventura. I for one resent it, we should stay on guard to the subliminal power of such pronouncements, and not allow it.

Love the gun law argument

Here's a simple question Peirs, Other governments may choose to disarm their citizens and of those examples some have become more peaceful and some have become dictatorships with oppressive governments that have become more violent. So, as a citizen of the world would you want the citizens of the worlds only super power, who's military nuclear might can alone wipe out as much as 50% of the worlds population to be defenseless in stopping a government that decides to move toward evil??

Didn't think about that did you Peirs, Look into the future and picture Kim Jong ill at the helm of the American war machine. Does the picture in your head look drastically different than today??? How would we the people fight if disarmed to stop this? what other Army in the world could stand against the largest, most destructive and powerful war machine ever built?

Like our founding fathers you don't make decisions based on the moment, you make them for the future.

First thought about this

First thought about this segment - Should Peirs really be on a news commentary show spouting his wimpy european socialist opinions as if they are facts? Seems he is more suited as a judge on Britains got talent or American Idol or something of that ilk. I cringe when he makes any observation or slams his guests with his misinformed judgments.

Despite having to constantly swat back that annoying gnat, Peirs, Ventura made some really great points that were palatable to the mainstream viewers -gun rights, ballot and debate access, conspiracy theories, etc. The one big gripe I have with his reasoning is that he is far to apologetic for Obama. I guess he is keeping favor with the left, which is smart if he ever runs for office or maybe in selling his ideas and books, but he shouldn't let Obama off any more than Romney.

wow, because this show some

wow, because this show some people went on youtube to look for the BBC early collapse report!

Read the top comment: "who else is here becuase they watched the piers morgen show" ..the guy got 67 thumbs up

Yeah. I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry on that one...

As always, Jesse delivers.

As always, Jesse delivers. The man was born to entertain and incite.

Piers so frustrated

It was fun watching Piers get so frustrated with Jesse.

So glad we have Jesse Ventura

I showed this interview to my father who calls himself a Ron Paul supporter, but still holds the "anyone but Obama" mentality. For this reason and others I consider him a pho-supporter of Dr. Paul.

But it was great seeing Jesse rip into both democrats and republicans (I personally think he went after the republicans more, but that's fine with me) and hearing/seeing my father's reaction was priceless. He was extremely conflicted because he saw the truth in Jesse's words, but didn't want to accept them.

I know it made a dent, though. And that's how you make progress, by picking at them day after day till they open their eyes.

get this man some austrian

get this man some austrian economic books and educate him on the fed, pronto!

By mostly ripping the GOP

Romney, Bush, et al. I think he is laying the ground work for a run. His best chance is Obama winning so there isn't a sitting president to run against like a Romney win would be.

I like Ventura....good man.

I don't agree with his general concept of running Independent, though--I think he should run with a third party.

Support the Constitution of the United States

II like Jesse but I think he

II like Jesse but I think he doesnt really understand the economy. Im an anarcho capitalist, I think hed be more in favor of central economic planning, just my opinion.

One world, under government, with power and money for the elite

Seriously though,

What is Jesse Venturas position on the economy? The fed, Sound Money and the roll of government?

I hear a lot about this and that surrounding war and 911 but would need to know more on his other positions. Assuming he advocates and embraces lasse fare capitalistic principles ( I hope) did he as governor have a good track record? Or is he simply pandering to a specific conspiracy audience?

Ventura would mainly be

Ventura would mainly be beneficial in the next race as an extreme candidate who would attack Republicans and Democrats equally and raise hell with the media. Believe me, he would stir things up.

His extreme positions would make Gary Johnson look even better for 2016, and after four more years of Obama and the economy sailing off the rails and into a ditch yet again, people will be infuriated with the political duopoly.

Hey, I think Piers makes a great point about gun control

I think he may have just changed my mind......

Blahahahah.....I'm sure....

Gary Johnson 2012, we can

Gary Johnson 2012, we can worry about 2016 after nov 2012 election.

0 faith in the corrupt gop even though i remain a republican.

Gary Johnson 2012
Ventura 2016

Ron Paul 2016

Go worship your queen

Go worship your queen Morgan... you idiot.

I think if Jesse could put

I think if Jesse could put together a good campaign he could win. I said this in early 2009 when I felt that Ron would run again that he should have started fund raising 3.5 years before the election. Jesse needs to make up his mind right now, and start the money coming in. After that douche Romney or obama destroys us in the next 4 years the American people will be ready to make Liberty the 1st priority again. We have 3 years to educate. 3 years to start stockpiling cash.

no, he will run on a shoestring

like he did in Minnesota. It can be done and should be done. Let's not waste money.

running for governor and

running for governor and running President are 2 different animals.

Socialist Piers-yuckie poo

Piers should go back to his socialist country and stay the heck out of the US. No one with a brain is interested in what he thinks or says. Any ratings he gets is to hear his guests which the left wing egomaniac usually won't shut up long enough to hear.

I wouldn't vote Ron Paul for VP for anyone, he's the top or nothing. But in the case of Ventura, would prefer RP at the top but would vote for them either way and would vote for either one no matter who was their choice for VP !


I hate when people spew

I hate when people spew theories about people based on non facts. Jesse has always spoke his mind and has always defended the people. As Gov. he did what he said he was going to do. He gained my trust. He's a good one.

I don't like this guy

sorry, but he seems like too much of a contrarian. And his shaking bothers me. Too many steroids? Maybe. He seems like the kind of independent that does not believe in anything other than his own independence from everybody else.

Cyril's picture

I like the guy much.

I like the guy much.

He is simple. He speaks simple.

He tells it like it is.

Less educated than Ron Paul, though as much concerned as the good Dr. is with America regarding the THOROUGH, PLANNED, SCHEDULED demolition of it undergoing, by the crooks and murderers in various offices.

Even a smart 12 year old american kid who loves the country and knows enough could tell.

Or even a 10 year old, maybe.

you need to get out more.

you need to get out more.

The shaking

could be from agent orange (Vietnam), or old age or just from getting the hell beat out of his body doing wrestling for so long. I've known old guys that had that same problem and they didn't do steroids. Jesse isn't afraid to give you his honest opinion whether you like it, or it makes sense or whatever. That's what makes someone a maverick.
