Quote me: If Jesse Ventura runs for President, he will win by a LANDSLIDE.

Unless he gets killed by  that Predator thing that keeps coming back to Earth.

Who do you like for President? 

"None of the above."

Yeah they are the worst. I am forced to watch at work. But it gives me an appreciation for Kieth Olberman's show. And on second thought I think Hannity was too imitated to get in Ventura's face.

I have to force myself to watch them sometimes just to keep up with how the people they draw in are thinking. Except for Bill, I just can't pollute my mind with his hollyer than thow attitude. Plus they have Caral Rove on a lot and he is one of the master mind of the country's take over homeland security the patriot act and what not. But then what do I expect when they are the hold over from the Nixon administration. Their motto is..... If at first you don't secede then try try again and this time they made it. It helps me to see what their next step will be.

lepersinmyhead,

"Shaking back and forth?"

No doubt, kind of scary.But compared to Bill's wife or the Neocon War puppet or who knows about Obama... Gov Ventura is completely, with out a doubt the best cannidate. GV would win by a margin so large the other cannidates should not even bother to campaign.

Tweedledee or Tweedledum? By: William Norman Grigg
December 4, 2000 » Email this page | printer friendly version digg_url = 'http://thenewamerican.com/node/1639'; digg_bgcolor = '#fff'; digg_skin = 'compact';

The unprecedented presidential election impasse, according to conventional wisdom, illustrates “grave divisions” in our nation. That a clear division separates partisans of Vice President Gore and Texas Governor George W. Bush is self-evident. However, the candidates themselves are separated more by style than by ideology — not unlike previous presidential elections when the American people were offered a choice between a Republican “Tweedledee” and Democrat “Tweedledum.”

Presidential politics, it has been observed, shares more than a little with the scripted farce referred to as professional wrestling: Like its “sports entertainment” counterpart, presidential politics involves a charade of conflict that riles up the masses, but involves a predetermined outcome. For the past several decades, the domination of the Executive branch by the Establishment’s chief organ of influence, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), has ensured that whether a Republican or Democrat wins the White House, the Establishment will be the victor — unless Americans redirect their attention to the House of Representatives, which is not as susceptible to Establishment control.

There are hundreds of CFR members in important positions in the Clinton-Gore administration, including President Clinton. (According to the CFR’s latest annual report, 548 CFR members are U.S. government officials — not bad for an elitist private organization with a total membership of less than 4,000.) George Bush, like Al Gore, is not himself a member of the CFR. But Bush has surrounded himself with CFR heavyweights. Condoleezza Rice, the head of Bush’s foreign policy team, is a CFR member, as is virtually every other Bush foreign policy advisor.* Should Bush become president, such “advisors” will likely be appointed to top positions in the new administration, where they will insure that the Insider policies that don’t deviate from one president to the next remain on track.

In the parlance of professional “wrestling,” the typical presidential struggle is a “work” — a conflict in which the contenders may suffer genuine injuries, but in which the eventual outcome (continued CFR dominance) is dictated in advance. The 2000 campaign, with the prolonged controversy over the contested result in Florida, resembles what professional “wrestling” commentators call a “Schmazz” — a match with no clear victor that disintegrates into a general free-for-all, with the rules thrown out the window. Spectacles of this sort are used to draw out popular conflicts and build fan interest. In like manner, the campaign melodrama, with its incendiary rhetoric and demagogic posturing, has resulted in much greater public fixation upon the presidency as the vessel of the “will of the people.” Jesse Jackson, in familiar fashion, descended upon Florida to preside over a mass tantrum of Gore supporters demanding an illegal “re-vote” in heavily Democratic Palm Beach County. Meanwhile, with Gore having come in first in the nationwide popular vote count, calls proliferated for the elimination of the Electoral College.

To judge from the acrimonious tenor of the controversy, one would believe that the presidential contest was the very hinge of history, and that a shift of a handful of votes would result in a dramatic change of national direction. In truth, irrespective of who is eventually deemed the winner of the protracted presidential election, the next President of the United States will be an internationalist committed to ruling through “consensus,” rather than governing according to the Constitution.
