    Re: Jesse Ventura for President 2016?

    Ventura is way too libertarian for my tastes, but he does have a few good ideas. "Religion is a crutch for weak-minded people." My favorite quote of his.
    AN AUTHORITARIAN SOCIALIST OPPOSED TO GLOBALISM, ZIONISM, AND FEMINISM, AND IN FAVOR OF SOVEREIGN NATIONS, A PALESTINIAN STATE, AND MEN'S RIGHTS!

    Indeed a very responible way of dealing with the responsibilities that come with being presidential.
    Mitt Romney never said that he didn't care about 49% of the country. He said that 47% of this country doesn't pay taxes. I could've told you before the primary that Mitt Romney was the worst choice in the primary. Did people listen? Nooooo. Everyone was all "he has the best chance to win the general election!"

    Mitt Romney while not a great choice - was still better than Barack Obama.

    I corrected myself previously.

    Are you a little bit slow?

    Re: Jesse Ventura for President 2016?

    I used to like Jesse Ventura, but he has veered off in a far more radical direction. If you read about his positions as governor of Minnesota they are reasonable, but now he is focused on conspiracy theories. I'm not sure what happened to him with that Chris Kyle. Supposedly famous SEAL sniper Chris Kyle was at a wake at a bar for a fellow SEAL (which Jesse was at one time) and supposedly Jesse was trashing the war and then said something to the effect of the SEALS deserved to lose a few guys. Supposedly Kyle punched Ventura. Given Ventura's extreme conspiracy theorism, it would not surprise me if he said that. I heard some of the same comments from like minded people saying the insurgents were "freedom fighters" and our soldiers "got what they had coming." I am not sure if he said it or not though, it would be slander if he hadn't.

    Either way it is between Jesse and Chris, and Chris Kyle was tragically murdered by a mentally ill man he was trying to help earlier this year. Anyway whether that is true or not, I am not sure why Kyle would make it up. If he were going to try to slander a political figure why wouldn't he claim somebody more prominent than Ventura did it? But I lost a lot of my respect for Jesse Ventura hearing about that. Even so, Jesse is trying to sue his widow. Even if Kyle DID lie about him why couldn't he leave the man's widow alone?

    That's not all he said about the 47%, nor was that 47% accurate given the context and impression he was trying to portray.

    He has considered running for President before. I'm wondering what your thoughts are about a potential Presidential run for him in 2016?

    1- Yes! I hope he runs! I will vote for him!
    2- I don't think he is a bad choice, but it depends who is running. If nobody good, I'll consider it.
    3- I'm unsure, or I don't really have an opinion on him or him running for President.
    4- I don't think I'm very likely to vote for him, but the option is open.
    5- I will definitely not vote for him.
    6- I don't even think he will run. He's suggested this idea a few times before.
    7- Orange you glad I didn't say banana?
    Is this a joke? You should remake this poll in the Conspiracy Theory sub-forum and see if you can garner a solid showing for Jesse.

    No way! I can't even believe this is a serious question. IMO he's kind of an idiot conspiracy theorist. All set there, thanks.

    Not all conspiracy theorists are idiots. Some just want to keep people safe from the tyranny and corruption that the powerful elite keeps secret.

    Kinda like, how anyone before the holocaust would've been called a loon if they dared to say that Hitler would ever do something like what he did.
