    If Jessie Ventura is on the ballot in 2016, would you vote for him for President?

    Remember, he was a Navy Seal during the Vietnam War and Governor.of Minnesota for four years.

      lol...sorry, just thought it would be fun to ask.  I just heard him say he will fun if he can be guaranteed a place in the debates and on the ballot in every state.

    I like how he questions things and looks for answers, but he is probably too radical to be a good president. I think the Feds view him as  tyrannic because he subtly hints that the U.S. government were the ones behind 9/11. Even if they were, you can't have a president who questions the government he works for. I do find him quite interesting though and I'm glad there are people like him who aren't afraid to ask the hard questions.

      lol...did you really say "subtle" in the same sentence referencing Jessie?  There is nothing subtle about his accusations.  But, I agree that he is wide open and that is refreshing.  I love listening to him but I doubt I could vote for him.

      Isn't the President suppose to work for the American people?

    I'm still shocked he was governor of Minn. for 4 years! Then again he puts Rick Scott, FL's governor to shame. I'll still say heck no he won't have my vote. Hillary Clinton already has it. Fun question Linda!!

      I agree about Rick Scott.  I'm a Hillary fan too Linda.  But, Jessie Ventura, although too radical at times, is very smart.  You don't get to be a Navy Seal by being stupid.

      Yet, he was also a professional wrestler, I'll still go with a "no."

      Oh man, the Predator ticket, lol.  I'd have to vote for him in that case.

    I really don't know enough about him. I have watched his Conspiracy Theory show, and found it interesting. I would be curious to see him in debates.

      lrc7815posted 5 years agoin reply to this

      KT, I agree that he would be interesting to watch in a debate.  He's quite animated and passionate.

      Alastar, why does anyone who speaks the truth too loudy get silenced?  :-)

    Jessie Ventura is trying to get the people to united to change this world.  he's a hidden news teller and always saying that the people can stop what happen to them and until that we are just sheep being lead to the slaughter of totalitarianism.

      lostdogwd - thanks for the comment.  I really like Jessie and I think he's very intelligent.  He is tough as nails and speaks his mind.  I like that about him.

      Those sound like good qualities for a president to have, Irc.

  8. GoGreenTips profile image60
    GoGreenTipsposted 5 years ago

    I would vote for him, just because he doesn't trust the government and understands that the government is the institution we should fear the most.  That is if he ever got to the ballot. He'd probably end up like Ron Paul.

  9. Vik Beluso profile image73

    Only if he picks George "The Animal" Steele as his running mate.

    Maybe I'm a snob, but I prefer someone who acts a little more presidential.  Didn't he create a stir when he said religion was a crutch for weak-minded people? He has good ideas, but then he goes around insulting everyone right and left and can't keep his cool on radios shows.

      lrc7815posted 5 years agoin reply to this

      bubba-math, he is a hot head sometimes.  But then I think about where some of those more "presidential" types have gotten us and I can't help but wonder if someoen more blunt wouldn't be a better option.  Semi-kidding, of course.
