Jesse Ventura, who recently penned DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans, joined Piers Morgan on Monday night to talk politics â€” mainly arguing that weâ€™d be better off if he did away with our two-party system. Comparing the two parties to the two infamous gangs, Ventura argued the political parties are worse. After all, they affect us all (not just a small portion of the population).
â€śTo save our country,â€ť he said, we â€śneed to abolish the political parties.â€ť Make them political action committees, he said. Ventura went on to explain how the political parties are in fact worse than the gangs heâ€™s comparing them to. The gangs can be â€śdevastating to a certain small part of the population,â€ť he said, but the parties, â€śthey affect everybody in this country and theyâ€™ve been in charge for over 100 years.â€ť
Morgan asked whether Venturaâ€™s simply endorsing a form of fascism. Weâ€™re already fascists, Ventura countered. Corporations are people, thatâ€™s fascist (going by the basic definition, which is corporations taking over government). The system is based on bribery, he said.
Ventura circled back to his original point: just donâ€™t put the party names on the ballot. If voters only see names, theyâ€™ll be forced to become more informed, he argued. He then joked that all presidential candidates should wear a NASCAR uniform. Why? â€śIt will show who owns them.â€ť
