Jesse Ventura on running for president: “I really believe I could win”

Nov 26, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck posted an interview with former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura. Here he talks about a possible presidential run in 2016:

“2016 would be the time for me to do it,” Ventura told me, his voice booming with confidence. “I really believe I could win – I would tell the people they could make history with me by electing the first person since George Washington that does not belong to a political party. That would be enough to win right there.”

“The key to the run would be giving the people the opportunity to elect someone who isn’t involved with these games. Everything about these politics is games. I think these two parties are destroying our country. They put their party first — not their country. That was shown with the government shut down. [Politicians] were willing to shut down the government for their parties. That is an act of treason. You know exactly where I stand with them. They’re criminals, a lot of them.”
