Jesse “The ‘Executive’ Body” Ventura: A Wrestler for President

Jesse Ventura is another possible presidential candidate for next year’s election. You won’t see him running for one of the two big parties of government because he thinks they are both corrupt. Always an individual, Ventura could potentially disrupt the current political landscape. But it’s hard to say what party he would affect.

Governor Ventura has a long list of credentials. As a former governor of Minnesota, Ventura has shown he knows how to work in government. Elected as a member of the Reform Party in 1998, he showed then that he didn’t believe in the current two-party system. He is a former pro wrestler, author, radio host, TV host, and a Navy SEAL during the Vietnam War.

It’s likely not possible for him to become the president for many reasons, besides entering into the race as a Democrat or Republican. The biggest reason is that he doesn’t play politics which is a must if you want any chance at being elected into the White House. Also, Ventura is a hardcore conspiracy theorist and that probably wouldn’t go over well with the American people.

As a man who stands by his opinions, he has expressed many ideas some people would consider radical. He thinks that the U.S. Government has been in a routine of trying to bring the nation into wars. Ventura believes that the Catholic Church should be prosecuted for organized crime. He has shown opposition to waterboarding, mentioning he has been waterboarded and that it’s torture. The governor said, “I’ll put it to you this way, you give me a water board, Dick Cheney and one hour, and I’ll have him confess to the Sharon Tate murders.”

The Libertarian Party would gladly welcome Jesse Ventura as their presidential candidate if Ron Paul doesn’t switch to the party. Ventura easily fits into the category of being a fiscally conservative person who believes in small and limited government. He also is a social liberal believing in gay rights, and abortion.

If the governor did decide to run it could affect who became president. But which party would it affect? Would it be the Republicans or Democrats? Either way, is it time we put a wrestler in the White House?
