Movie actors, anyone?

I'm convinced at this writing we are desperate for a presidential candidate and willing to accept almost anything---as long as it's someone who has a political resume.

What about the opposite tack? Running a political newbie for office who is a world famous celebrity? Because frankly I don't see any career politicians in the public eye who look like they could wake the voters, let alone the brain-dead mainstream media, from a deep slumber.

The name Jesse Ventura keeps coming up. What political resume does Ventura have? He was governor of Minnesota. What political resume did he have before that? None. He was a movie actor and ex-wrestler.

What political resume did Schwarzenegger have before he became governor? None. He was a movie actor and ex-bodybuilder.

What political resume did Reagan have before he became governor? None. He was a movie actor, and president of the Screen Actors Guild.

At least with governor, it seems to be an open door.

There are stars out there who are not members of the Hollywood Left.

He's tall, which helps

From the article Kevin posted, Tom says he thinks government's role amounts to ""I think we should have stoplights, fire departments, and [a] strategic missile defense."

Okay, sounds like a platform to me! LOL. That about sums it up.

Nice find

Thanks. No political experience--doesn't hurt as much as it used to.

Interesting suggestion. An

Interesting suggestion.

An NRA history is a very good starting point. Now, I know to hard-Right libertarians, the NRA seems like a mushpile of wimps (mostly because that's what they are), but imagine Selleck with a big NRA T-shirt at a political rally.

Lots of votes there...what's the current NRA membership? Five million?

I would have voted for Charlton Heston with minimal provocation, unless he was running against Ron Paul.

Not really an actor, but would be a damed good ally if he could be convinced.

Segue from the Reagan reference

I received a GOPUSA email today about a new Reagan Revolution from Michael Reagan. www.reaganaction.com Of course, one of the first things requested is $$. Guess we have to bailout even the Reagan conservatives....

IT'S DOABLE

Mr. Ventura was also a mayor....

I believe people flipped out over Sarah Palin's

history as a city councilwoman, a mayor, and a governor.

Jesse Ventura's resume is about the same. Will the public who despised Sarah, and said she was not ready for the VP job, really embrace Ventura?

Ventura is also a former

Ventura is also a former Navy SEAL. Don't discount his military service as a major selling point. People have a lot of respect for candidates with military service under their belt.

Problems with this site?

Sorry, off topic. Is anyone experiencing problems? I just got back from a trip, and can't pull the site up fresh. It shows the top red banner only. I had this page saved and can access it ok.

I'm having the same

issue. I just added /blog to dailypaul.com & got in.

Obama = O.ne B.ig A.ss M.istake A.merica

Yeah, here's the trick

It happens in IE.

What you do - instead of going to www.dailypaul.com straight, save one of the nodes in your favorites, or just plain type

www.dailypaul.com/node/58092

for example.

That does the trick.

Thanks

for the info.
