Former Governor slams political ‘gangs’ Dems, GOP over shutdown
Oct 2, 2013
Former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura smacked down members of Congress in a CNN appearance Tuesday, saying that the two parties are nothing more than political gangs feeding off the American people.
Appearing on Piers Morgan’s show, Ventura declared that Democrats and Republicans have essentially “legalized bribery” in the American legislature, and that the only way to fix the system would be to elect independents to office.
Commenting on the government shutdown, Ventura said “That should mean we shouldn’t have to pay any taxes, right?”
“I think it’s time for a revolt in this country. I’ve been advocating a revolution for years now.” Ventura said, adding “revolutions don’t have to be violent, but we need one, and I would tell everyone here, vote them all out of office and don’t vote in a new Democrat or Republican, vote for anyone BUT Democrats and Republicans.”
