From Minneapolis Jesse great to see a thanks for coming again I guess you're not surprise that they could make a deal right.
I'll tell you could have beyond a month ago and I could've given you this news well in fact our new new meaning you'll get unsettled I thought at all during the debate you said that they were gonna do it.
Well Dirksen interest being guided me to benefit from the bailout I understand Freddie Mac -- him about a million -- or some -- as a consultant.
So he benefited directly from a bailout would be opposed I care figure that one out.
Anyway back on topic it doesn't surprise me a bit prepay reach no conclusion.
These two parties are destroying our country.
They're responsible for the shape of the country's -- no matter how they try to pass the -- around a point fingers at each other it's just like pro wrestling.
In front of the cameras they don't like each other behind the scenes they're all work -- -- -- It was a common cause that's a greater -- party dictatorship.
Well so are Americans themselves are American voters ready to give up on its establishment.
Well -- certainly should be I mean afraid about they probably won't I mean even here -- -- -- of the last governor's election.
We have a guide -- mister -- who is.
Endorsed by three or four previous governors both newspapers the former senator and independent didn't belong to either party he got 12% of the vote.
His problem once he didn't have my career as -- yes.
Well besides you -- there are some people running maybe they don't have Jesse Ventura charisma but they have.
They have gumption and air clear -- their ideology people like Ron Paul for example.
Governor -- doesn't seem to matter I hope Ron Paul goes great he's not gonna get the Republican nomination though I got news -- They want their Ron Paul will be out of a bottoms welcome met their convention as the red headed step child who shows up on the day they read the will.
So -- I'm not X.
So -- so I -- Seoul where about where to those people who are fed up with the two parties go I mean the reform party well -- -- -- -- part of doesn't exist anymore right.
Right maybe Ron Paul will join the Libertarian Party which has ballot access in thirty to forty states are more.
Am you don't you'll get a running -- in that way he gives the people somewhere to go people need to realize.
But to solve our problems -- is as easy as the nose on your face but it's -- different called.
As climbing Mount Everest and that -- stop voting for Democrats and Republicans.
Vote for anyone else they've ruined our country.
Well if it's so easy to do just that just lay out the plans that you would do I mean you're governor you were never president but you work Chief Executive Officer of the state how would you know what.
How would you fix -- debt problem.
Well the first of all how what I do it yeah I would immediately bring all of our troops whole I would close all of our foreign military bases.
I would cut -- the defense budget I would allocate 10% of the defense budget to go into a new space program.
Shall we can continue to explore space and finding good things as opposed to waging war do you realize that if I'm sixty years old now.
And my country's been at war for over half my life.
So where else Jesse we we understand that that your positions on on the defense budget but what about things like.
The so called entitlements things like Social Security Medicare Medicaid how would you take care -- that well -- First -- -- first of all Social Security is not an entitlement.
That you pay he had to -- entire working career how could that be an entitlement.
When you've -- did -- which you have no choice they make you pay him to a so -- you are indeed deserve the money you get back it's not an entitlement.
Let's talk about giving corporate welfare -- here at my local city.
-- bring -- give it new development and they're letting him off the hook they don't have to pay property taxes for twenty years.
That's called corporate welfare building sports stadiums are -- Corporate welfare if you -- corporate welfare as opposed to social welfare.
Corporate welfare is a hundred to a thousand -- higher than social welfare areas.
That's where to start let's take our country back from the corporate powers that -- -- it today -- let that means and I think you'd agree with this at what we should start -- this is just ripping up the tax -- getting rid of -- entirely.
Absolutely I support abolishing the income tax and -- -- a national sales tax.
I've stood for about since 1990s.
-- blasting from me.
People need to be aware as a result of my court case.
That when you go to -- airport in the United States of America you are not protected by the constitutional the bill writes.
People need to be clear -- that there's nobody you can go to.
To seek any type -- redress.
And also you can't hold the rules that the airport they're considered top secret -- which were not allowed to -- so you can be abused at an airport.
And you won't even know Jesse -- let us assume further forward just argument -- that we throw all the bums out the next election.
What are -- replace them with and are things really go to change because the establishment is already in place.
Well you gotta start by replacing a deck you gotta start my opinion I don't even support the third party movement anymore.
I support now abolishing all political parties I -- with some pretty good people to like John Adams and Tom Jefferson and -- there were a few other guy's way back when I am.
But realized the danger of political parties taking over so wide for the abolishment of all political parties.
We can start by doing the most simple thing.
Remove political party names from all ballots.
Put just that -- but the candidate.
On the ballot not the parties that development what -- -- -- who they're voting for they would vote for part of they'd have to know the opinions that were well what about what about movements in a country like that the important for example do you think that Tea Party.
Is having -- in any effective moving us in the right direction.
Sure they are but I wish to Tea Party would team up with the Wall Street people.
Because essentially they are standing for the same -- and cleaned up our government.
Stop allowing the Democrats and Republicans to sell their soul.
To the corporate interests of the world.
The commute to over the saddest day in America which -- are Supreme Court ruled.
That a corporation.
Has the same rights as an individual.
That was a dark days in United States history I can't tell you -- dark.
Well let me just ask whether it's all over Jesse -- whether you think whether you're generally optimistic or pessimistic about the future of this great country.
I'm very pessimistic I'm not optimistic I mean you've got you don't kids living uphold golf forced to tell -- thirty years old.
You've got -- There's -- the dream out there that I saw is a young man growing up anymore in this country most of these Wall Street protesters you see our young people.
And they start off the debt.
They tell all the kids go to college.
I assume this massive debt -- but when you come out of college you spend the rest of your life paying off debt.
So what ties right him to what the government did today they couldn't reach a conclusion on the government's debt.
And they start right off.
By trying to enslave the public by putting them in to debt I've initially well you don't have to take that educate you don't have to go into debt correct.
Well you don't -- to but it's and still didn't do great I mean everybody gold go to college.
You know gold dude dude -- to do here loan money -- how do you think Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae brought in such trouble.
-- then isn't isn't a problem the government loan programs are rather than the individuals I mean it.
The government as you can as you say is practically pushing a lot of this money off -- people.
-- who runs our government the Democrats and Republicans.
-- -- right back to what I told -- they admitted charge for a hundred years.
They are fully responsible.
For everything that's wrong today and it's time to stop letting them pass the block.
Former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura always good to -- -- -- thank you very much Fred do for my pleasure have a little.
