It's time again to answer questions from you, my vigilant fans! Got a question for the Governor? Sound off at Ora.tv/OffTheGrid.
Gerardo Vazquez from New York asks: Why don't all the big Constitutionalists and Libertarians in this county get together to form a more unified front?
You got me! I tried to do that as governor of Minnesota. I tried to solidify all the parties into one movement telling them that if we worked together we could get one candidate elected. It was like herding cats. Everyone wanted to go a different way with his or her own issues, unable to agree on anything. That’s what the two party systems thrive on.
Carl Chouloute from Florida asks: What do think of the TPP?
I’m outrageously against it. 600 corporations are crafting it and they’re not allowing us to see anything until they sign it and jam it down our throats. So you could bet it’s being done to aid corporate fascism and to work against democracy.
Garrett Phipps from Sydney asks: During elections, How can we be sure that the vote tally machines won’t be rigged and counted by someone who is bias towards a particular party?
You can’t! Especially with electronic voting machines, which can be hijacked just like any computer. Which is what I believe happened in the 2000 and 2004 elections in Ohio and Florida. I think we should go back to paper ballots, which cannot be hacked into as easily as computers today.
Bud Plumbley from Texas asks: Jesse, How do we know the 9/11 hijackers used box cutters if everything was supposedly destroyed?
That’s a question I’ve been asking for awhile. Where did that even come from? It must have been a reporter who said it and it just got repeated over and over. There is no proof that any box cutters were used. Yet it’ll go down in history that our multi-billion dollar air-defense system was defeated by a simple box cutter.
