    Good question.

    No. Then again I also know that Islamists have different sets of morals and values that an athiest like Jesse Ventura would have.

    I feel that the Muslims are trying to enforce Sharia Law.

    I have also heard about how the Muslims wanting to mix the religions into being Chrislam. That that would be their way of creating a one world order - by also having a one world religion - as a means to end all wars and create world peace. But it will be a fake peace, and Christians will win.

    Jesse Ventura wants to expose stuff like this. So asking me if I would vote for him if he were a muslim - would be like asking me if I would still eat a pizza if you subtracted all the cheese, sauce, and dough from it, and added macaroni and cheese - if I would still eat the pizza then - then no. Because it wouldn't be the same thing that it is.

    I would prefer a Christian above all other religious beliefs. But I would choose an athiest over Jesse Ventura. I still see athiests as easier to win over to Christianity. Muslims seem too set in their own beliefs and have more of a vengeance towards Christians. Athiests are kinda neutral.

    And while it is better to be wrong than to be lukewarm - I would rather be wrong than lukewarm in my decision.

    The only convincing thing I heard in this thread so far (still need to catch up though) was about going into office with a huge budget surplus, and leaving office with a budget deficit. While it would be worth noting that Bush Jr. was in his first term as President for the last 2 year's of Governor Ventura's term as Governor. Then again, why did Gary Johnson have that in reverse - leaving his office after a second term the same year Ventura left his first and only term.

    Also - I do not know the answers - so I won't pretend that I do know - I'm just curious as to your thoughts.
    Yeah, what if science is actually real and falling objects actually do seek the path of least resistance as all real science has determined .. which of course makes the story of 9/11 a fairy tale.

    Cognitive dissonance is a POWERFUL mind****.

    I'll just never understand why there's such a sizeable amount of people in this world desperately wanting to be led by crazy people.

    Something about the way swarms function and large groups interact for protection against predators. These behavioral strategies took millions of years to evolve. Can't dump them easily just because we have TV and now twitter.

    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.

    Really lousy pro wrestler. Likewise as a politician and governor.

    I would hope he wins, but I would not waste the gas money to drive 7 miles to town to vote for him, and here is my reason why
