Jesse Ventura responds to fan questions regarding a potential 2016 run. Here's what he has to say.
I love my country.
I’m patriotic as much as mainstream media tries to say that I’m not.
We’re losing our freedoms here. We’ve become complacent. We seem to believe that yes, we can give up our freedoms, no big deal. Americans don’t want to be vigilant. They’ve got their lives and don’t want to be bothered by anything else.
Well, that’s not going to work. If the people continue to be complacent, we’re going to lose it all, just as our forefathers warned us. This is where I see us heading.
So, when I consider running for president, one part of me always asks, Why?
And another part of me asks, If not you, then who?
But as I said before, a decision on my candidacy would have to be made with the Libertarian party at the end of May. And I’m not going to show my hand yet. I'll just sit back and enjoy the circus.
