Jesse Ventura About To Make Huge Announcement: Senate Run? President?

Jesse Ventura said he's making a big announcement on his facebook page tonight. I live in Minnesota and the news here has been saying Al Franken has no Republican opponent. I'm wondering if Jesse has realized this. He would never run as a Republican, but I wouldn't doubt it if he runs. He would steal a ton of Republican votes because the Republican party has been taken over by Ron Paul supporters.

UPDATE: Turns out this one is a dud. He is promoting a new TV show involving his son that he just announced this morning. GRRRRRRRRRRR...

Are Republicans Scared of Al Franken?
SNL star-turned-senator isn't drawing much early GOP opposition.

Why the fascination with this

Why the fascination with this proponent of big government when it comes to economics? Jesse is for big government in your pocket book, a typical tax and spend liberal leaning, government health care supporting, foot in mouth, publicity seeking has been.

Is it just because he is an independent? Sure he is on our side when it comes to personal privacy issues, but so is Al Sharpton and I don't see anyone pushing him for president - Thank goodness.

I just don't get the fascination with such a big government, liberal leaning independent. Not even the biggest stretch would make Jesse a liberty candidate.

We can appreciate his outspoken, albeit bombastic, statements against the TSA and the Patriot Act, without crapping our pants with excitement about some big announcement which will, no doubt, only serve his own personal agenda to seek publicity.

Ron Paul 2012 - It's Almost Here!

There is one reason

He does not seem like he can be corrupted. Were he to obtain high office, the jig would be up, so to speak. He'd demand a new independent investigation of 9/11, the JFK assassination, and would be making so much information public, that people would be mentally liberated. If that is going to cost a 1-5% payroll tax increase, I'm all for it.

Back to the

WWE?

It's time! Rand Paul 2016!

Jesse would never run as a Republican.

He has said so, numerous times. However, there is nothing to stop Ron Paul supporters from putting an honest man in as junior senator from Minnesota.

I would like to see Al Frankin call Jesse...

Junior

Don't Call Me Junior!
