Jesse Ventura to Federal Elected Officials: End the Government Shut Down and Regain Our Civil Liberties

ventura memoFormer Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura has started a petition on calling for an end to the government shutdown. Click HERE to sign the petition if you agree with this:

A million federal employees have been laid off since the government shut down. It costs us, the taxpayers, over 300 million dollars a day. The representatives that work for us are still getting paid, even though they’ve declared they won’t show up for work. Can you imagine walking into your job today and telling your boss that you won’t be showing up to work, but you demand your boss still pays you? How well do you think that conversation will play out?

As I’ve said many times before, every American citizen deserves free health care. It isn’t socialism; it’s the right thing to do. Even though I don’t agree with President Obama on many issues, I do know that he was re-elected because We The People, the majority, wanted the Affordable Care Act. The bill was passed. And now, it’s Congress, standing in our way. They’re holding the country hostage. Isn’t that terrorism?

If government healthcare is good enough for our military, and good enough for our representatives, and good enough for our President, then it is good enough for the rest of us too.

Don’t let Congress take away your basic right to health care. It’s inexcusable that they are getting paid to do nothing. Right now, they are getting free government health care too – also, you guessed it – for doing absolutely nothing.

If they’re not working, why should they continue to be paid? Why should we continue to send them our tax dollars? The IRS should pro-rate our taxes, so that we don’t pay a penny to them while they are holding our government and our health care hostage.

Do you know what happened in Australia a few years ago when the country’s legislature failed to make a budget? They were all fired. The Australians fired them and instituted new elections for the entire Legislature.

We need to stop voting for those who do not have our interests in mind. Stop voting for these DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans who put their political parties first, special interest groups second, and we, the American people, third.

If these elected officials want to keep their jobs, we must petition our government to make them actually do their jobs, or else vote them out of office immediately. Remember: they work for us. It’s time they remember that.

Express your anger by taking action to regain our Democracy. Add your signature to my petition.

    On the one hand, I find it difficult to take Jesse Ventura seriously. On the other, I know that if I were in the same room as him, I’d probably take him a lot more seriously. So maybe we should just send him to Congressmen’s home so he can personally explain his views

      I’m okay with this.

      “The Body” sounds more credible than “Tuna Ghost.” Sending a petition seems to be a more credible way to express our views.

        More credible than body-slamming members of congress? You’re a fool, Jameson

      I am in agreement with about 90% of what Jesse Ventura says, but he’s such a douche in real life that its hard to stand on the same side as him. That Ben Franklin hairdo he’s rocking now isn’t helping his credibility much either(I know its not right to judge a person on their physical appearance, but sometimes that crazy guy looks the part too well). Also, can’t take anyone seriously when they say they will run on a ticket with Howard Stern.

    Define ‘health care’

  4. Maybe the working(wo)man needs to follow suit.
    General Strike, anybody?

    A few years ago? Try 1975. Oh and the Queen of England fired the Prime Minister not ‘the Australians’. We’re still her biotch.

    OK. So Mr. Ventura wants universal access to health “care.” IF our so-called medical system is controlled by big pharma and the NWO then Ventura’ s “plea” will actually subject millions MORE to these same machinations of death and disease. Get it? Jesse Ventura is NOT your friend!!!

  7. Do you think that the government is you friend concerning medical care.? Mr Rick, you need to do some effective research before you speak. The current medical system is corrupted. Their main interest is to make money, that’s their objective. Other country are doing better in providing medical care for all their citizens. If we have a lot of money to go into wars, then I believe that taking care of all our citizens medical needs should not be a problem. Really? Medical care should be a right for all people, not a privilege for just some.. We all pay taxes, for your information some corporations do not pay any taxes, what we call taxes. Do you the research.

    Jesse Ventura might not be a prefect president, but he would be better than what I have seen in my life time in this country. Otherwise, if we do not wake up in way our government is currently operating, in time it will destroy our country.
