    The quick answer is absolutely. When one looks at party affiliation today, 24% of the electorate Republican, 29% Democrat and 47% independent, the numbers are there. Also back in the 90's only 39% of the electorate said they would consider voting for a third party, today it is 81%. But other than my quick answer, it would take a more in depth reply to cover the hows and what has to be done. But as of today, there is no one out there that would fit the criteria. But who knows, Perot didn't come on the scene until very early in 1992 and at one time was leading both Bush and Clinton in the polls.

    I have to pick up my graddaughter from school, if not for that I would explain the hows and whys.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    He cant run, he is hiding from drones. Is there seriously a movement to run Jesse for president. Really? hell maybe it is me that's crazy, but that really seems crazy.

    You know, this is the second thing that has crossed my computer screen, in the last hour, that I think is completely crazy and the other one was seriously work related. Maybe it is me.

    Me too. I kinda wish he would chilax and dump the conspiracy speak. It turns off a hell of alot of ppl. I realize he has a significant base that relishes that kind of talk, but even if he stops it, he is still more reasonable then anybody in the mainstream.

    I love Jesse Ventura. But, not for president. Even though, that would be hilarious.

    But some things are just too serious to have some one like him. The oval office being one of them.

    Kinda like, "Willie Nelson for President!"

    A crazed nutter like Ventura can't win. Nor should he, ever.

    He needs to go away.

    I don't think he wants it. He's said that he'll run if he's drafted, but he isn't going to put any effort into getting on the ballot.

    The one thing he would do is bring together Democrats and Republicans - against him.

    When I moved out here to Minnesota he was the gov. I would have voted to re-elect him if he had run for a second term.

    Good point.
    I saw that gaping hole with my own eyes.
    No one could survive that......unless maybe, just maybe the gov't staged the whole thing.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    I still think that that was the second best movie of all time. Of course Sigorney Weaver in her underware is Alien was the best.
