It's time again to answer questions from you, my vigilant fans! Got a question for the Governor? Sound off at Ora.tv/OffTheGrid.
Nathan Quinlan from FL asked: How can we change politics so that it becomes "non-profit"? Is this possible or even logical?
It would be very difficult. You would have to go back and change the laws. Unfortunately, we have a supreme court that will overturn any changes to those laws.
MJ Evans from PA has asks: Would getting rid of the Patriot Act really change anything? How long has the government has been using these tactics before it was enacted?
Getting rid of it is a start. The key is following through. We have to make our government start following the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Those are the fabrics of our country and we need to hold our elected officials accountable. Good luck waiting for that to happen!
Christopher Rooney From MA asks: Governor Ventura, what do you think of the Glass-Steagall Act?Should this be reinstated?
I do believe that it should be reinstate and that it should receive the utmost priority. We should be getting rid of the Federal Reserve all together. It’s unconstitutional.
Linda Brown from ND writes: How can pharma companies charge the prices they do? I was prescribed Abilify and the cost would be $1,000 per month. My insurance won't even touch it. I think insurances should be able to put a cap on pharma's prices.
I suggest you look for alternative forms of medicine. Get out of the pharmaceutical pill business. Stop taking that crap! It’s whoring our entire health care system of America. There are many things out there that are natural and do not carry the consequences that all these pills do. Some pills are necessary but many of them are not.
Mark Harding from FL asks: Why is the U.S. government going after the Soccer folks for selling out for influence and access? That just sounds like what the Democrats and Republicans do in this county every day of the week.
You’re exactly right! It’s like the old saying, ‘do as I say, not as I do.’ It’s the height of hypocrisy in this country. Our entire political system is based on bribing and payoffs. It’s laughable.
Jason Amerson from WI writes: What is your opinion of Scott Walker and the Republicans now wanting to tax bicyclists in Wisconsin, but increase road transportation spending?
You can’t pick and choose like that in government. You have to tax accordingly and fairly. What Scott Walker is doing is not right. At a time where the world crating massive amounts of pollution, bikes are exactly what we need to be seeing more of.
