Interestingly, after a couple weeks post-book-release, I haven't heard from him.

He needs to run for senate, hopefully win and after a few terms go for the presidency.

If we're intersted in putting a 3rd party or independant in the white house this year, Ventura is the only real shot we potentially have.

Barr can be a spoiler at best but, Ventura has defied these types of odds before and has the confidence that he will actually win if only he can debate. I believe him.

I dont think he'll run for pres this year but i do think he'll run for senate, and then perhaps a run in 2012 when america is almost crippled with socialism from obama.

Jesse Ventura thinks border control is "tyranny." He is criminally insane.

A little vague, could you explain.

Not too sure if he really gets it or not. He has said during his
book promoting tv tour that "Ron Paul isn't running any more. He
dropped out" (paraphrased). Also he said something to the effect
of "I like Obama, cause he has been able to get young people out
and think" (paraphrased again).

So I started to question whether or not he really "gets IT" or not.

He certainly would stir the pot if elected as a Senator.

Jesse Ventura seems honest but hasn't gotten in Washington to turn corrupt yet. Plus he doesn't really understand economics like he should and although he is against the war I doubt his understanding of noninterventionism.

criminally insane?

he's just concerned about america getting into a "berlin wall" situation.

he thinks the problem lies more in the incentives, and thats a problem the fence cant fix.

The Berlin Wall separated Germans from Germans. This proverbial fence would separate Americans from Mexicans. Let me reiterate: he is criminally insane.

^A fence will not magically end illegal immigration, you know we do get immigrants from places other than Mexico. You end the welfare state and hold businesses' accountable for going after cheap illegal labor, it'll end illegal immigration because they won't have any incentives to stay because ending the welfare state means that people have to go out and get jobs.

Sir VotesALot

I agree. And I wasn't the one who brought up the fence in the first place. Hannity asked him "We should secure our borders?" (no mention of fence) and it was Ventura who brought it up. "Securing our borders" of course does not only mean building a fence. It could just mean toughening up border security or any number of rational policies that are presently not in effect.

I doubt Ventura would even endorse going after employers who hire illegals or ending the state benefits they get. Why? Because he is criminally insane. When asked the completely sane question: "We should secure our borders?" he pretty much said "no". I'd rather vote for the warmongering Tom Tancredo than this psycho.

Are you kidding me? A fence is a straight-up slap in the face to Mexico. It won't stop them from coming over.

Check it out. Good piece on the matter. You seriously need to get rid of the welfare state, and tighten up the laws on people providing illegal employment, and fix the damn work visa program, our budget is going completely to defense which is not helping the rest of the Federal Departments.

It's quite simple to figure out. Building a fence will not solve the immigration problem, guranteed. Especially a fence that's only 700 feet. Even Ron Paul himself said the fence is an insulting idea, he only voted for it because it's the only bill to actually try to reform the immigraiton problem.

^[Nods] My FUCKING ;) bad sir. Yeah, I think Ventura falls under a hard lined libertarian like Penn Jillette who both think we should just allow immigrants to flow freely into the country. That'd be a horrible mistake, the poorer areas of America would get mistakenly worse.

What is the difference if you have a physical fence separating two
regions or have a fully armed "border security" doing the same?

Ventura's opposition to a "fence" is based on restrictions of free
travel between these regions, or in this case any two countries,
one of which is the United States of America.

He says a "fence" just as it could be used to keep out people from
United States of America, can be used at any time to keep US citizens
from LEAVING their country!

Now, replace "fence" with either an tall wall, barbed wire fence,
an electric fence, an armed army guarding the border, or a mine
field. They all could be seen as performing the same: keeping people
from freely traveling across such "fence".


FORGET ABOUT THE FUCKING FENCE! I don't think you read my last post.

Penn and Teller are a pair of useless, arrogant douches.

He talks for a while about illegal immigration on one of his alex jones appearances. he says he wants to punish employers of illegals, and remove incentives
even ron agrees that a fence isnt getting to the core of the issue

I really do hope so. Otherwise, Franken is going to win it.

I read his book - and he shares a lot with ron paul
- bring troops home
- end IRS (though he is for national sales tax)
- against drug war
- legalize prostitution
- get government out of marriage
- against death penalty now due to its faults
- lower taxes
- talk and trade with all other countries
- less government and more indiv. responsibility (in healthcare too)
- private charity, not government charity
- etc.

My agreements with him far outway any disagreements

IMO, these two veterans really complement each other well in term of their personalities while share similar political believes. Just wait till the media get a load from them.

He might get through to those with thick sculls with a verbal 2x4. I just can't imagine RP doing this. You need that when dealing with slimeball.

oh, maybe that's why. I don't mind truthers, it's just, basically, can a truther be elected? He will be crucified out there. I don't think it's a good mix to be a 9/11 truth and be in the running for major political office. bad mix imo

I guess he doesn't care about PR, huh? That's important if you're looking to run for political office. Maybe he said that because he has no intention of running?

I think this is his PR, a navy seal UWD veteran openly questions the validty of official 911 report. Intention? I can say RP has much less intention to become a "president" than a everyday politician.
