THANK YOU JESSE FOR ARTICULATING MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY!

“You control our world. You’ve poisoned the air we breathe, contaminated the water we drink, and copyrighted the food we eat. We fight in your wars, die for your causes, and sacrifice our freedoms to protect you. You’ve liquidated our savings, destroyed our middle class, and used our tax dollars to bailout your unending greed. We are slaves to your corporations, zombies to your airwaves, servants to your decadence. You’ve stolen our elections, assassinated our leaders, and abolished our basic rights as human beings. You own our property, shipped away our jobs, and shredded our unions. You’ve profited off of disaster, destabilized our currencies, and raised our cost of living. You’ve monopolized our freedom, stripped away our education, and have almost extinguished our flame. We are hit…we are bleeding…but we ain’t got time to bleed. We will bring the giants to their knees and you will witness our revolution! “

-Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura, April 12, 2011

Love it. I watched him on the View the other day, and thought him a well spoken & rational person, despite that he was talking 'conspiracy theory' and stuff like that!

I remember when Jesse ran for governor. I didn't vote for him. I thought he was too green (no experience) and too much of a celebrity but... later I followed him and I really feel that he is a sensible intelligent man. He also cares about people, that is more than I can say about most politicians.
