Politics has hijacked the United States and still lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have yet to come closer to an agreement that would put nearly 1 million government employees back to work. According to a recent poll, 72 percent of Americans are opposed of the Republican strategy to shut down the government in spite of “Obamacare.” And as the dysfunction continues, former Independent Governor Jesse Ventura sounds off on the Capitol Hill shenanigans with RT’s Sam Sacks.
Jesse Ventura, the former governor of Minnesota is a phenomenon unique to America politics, someone outside of the political arena who uses his renown to secure a political position of power.
In Don’t Start The Revolution Without Me, (Skyhorse Publishing 2,008) written with Dick Russell, Ventura offers insights into the American political situation that no one else is in the position to put forward.
The fast and easy to read book is a loose biography of Ventura’s life and beliefs. A native of Minneapolis, a Vietnam Navy Seal veteran, professional wrestler and radio and television talk show host, Ventura invented his own life filled with integrity, the love of his country, wife and family.
Ventura’s parents were both veterans of WWII, and growing up in the Eisenhower 50’s and Kennedy’s and Vietnam era sixties shaped his life.
