Former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura is once again talking about a possible run for President this time after his lawsuit of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) was dismissed.
While I cannot disagree with Ventura on the basis of his lawsuit against the TSA, applying for Mexican citizenship and saying you won’t stand for the national anthem again isn’t probably going to win you support if you want to run for President. Additionally, talking conspiracy theories isn’t going to help your chances. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to look like a hypocrite and attack Ventura too much for questioning the official government story of the attacks of September 11th. Likewise, several years ago, as a young man I questioned the official story until common sense and science prevailed and Popular Mechanics, the History Channel, independent groups of scientists and investigators all confirmed Al Qaeda responsibility for the attacks and that is when I stopped questioning. When a candidate for public office makes such claims they will quickly lose support from most Americans and be viewed as crazy.
Mr. Ventura, if you want to run for President please start running and if not please quit talking about running. I know that I for one am tired of people like Jesse Ventura and Donald Trump getting people excited time and time again acting like they are running for President only to disappoint them each and every time.
