Keep your #AskJesse questions coming and Jesse Ventura will keep answering them from #OffTheGrid!
James Weider from Michigan writes: Where do you see America in the next decade, better or worse and why?
I see it at worse.
I see the separation in these two political parties wrecking the country even more than they have in the last 150 years. The word “compromise” apparently doesn’t exist anymore with them. When you watch what goes on, and the opposition that takes place, you’ll see the United States being totally stagnant.
All because of these two political parties who will not agree that the country comes first. Unfortunately, they’re completely out of whack.
I don’t see bright skies ahead for the United States. Unless some big changes happen in who and what we vote for.
Dan Driver from Michigan asks: Are you worried about your safety, and that's the reason you moved to Mexico? My wife is worried about the way I post on line, and is afraid that the government is going to arrest me. Most of the time I only echo what you say. Yahoo has censored me from telling the truth. Should I stop voicing my opinion?
You have what’s called the 1st Amendment in the Constitution. The 1st Amendment is there not to protect popular speech. Popular speech doesn’t need protecting. It’s there to protect unpopular speech.
Why did I move to Mexico? I didn’t move here thinking I was in danger in the United States. To be perfectly honest, it’s because I hate winter. Down here off the grid it’s generally 85 and sunny everyday. It’s wonderful.
I love everything about being down here off the grid because it makes me feel younger. When you get older like me, anything that makes you feel younger is good.
Robert Meier from Illinois asks: What are your feelings if we just got rid of the Federal Reserve banks by declaring them unconstitutional and got rid of all debts owed to them?
First of all Robert, it is unconstitutional. Right in our constitution it states that we shall have no central bank. So they violated the constitution when they created the Federal Reserve. I believe it was never voted on by 2/3 of the states either, which is what’s required to go into the constitution.
I think it’s already unconstitutional. But good luck. They write the checks for our government. Do you think our government will do anything to their money people at the Federal Reserve?
The Federal Reserve, they’re the people who I believe really run the country.
Mark Meckley from North Carolina wants to know: What do you think about how the government took this land from the native Indian’s?
It wasn’t pretty, that’s for sure. It was the times though. It was during an era of colonialism.
The United States wasn’t the only place if you look all over the world. The French went into Vietnam and colonized. You had all the European nations who were technically more advanced, white Anglo-Saxon, who went out into the world and colonized.
They decided that they were the bosses and they decided that your religion doesn’t count anymore. You now have to embrace their religion.
That was an era of time that unfortunately went on. As shameful as it was, that’s the way it was, and there’s nothing we could do to change that history except be honest about it.
