Learn why the two-party system is fundamentally corrupt and how a no-party system could save American democracy. Exposing the ineptitude and gang-like mentalities of both parties, Ventura advocates the replacement of the two-party system with a no-party system based on the ideals of our Founding Fathers. As election time rolls around, this is most certainly the book that should be looked at for reforming our electoral system.

Say what you will about Jesse “The Body” Ventura — and many people will, describing the former Minnesota Guv as a “kook” — but he has a way of describing a cluttered, corrupt system in a simplistic, libertarian POV.
It’s always been a voice I’ve found refreshing, even when he was railing against the machine back in his WWF days. While this book doesn’t really offer many surprises yes, Jesse dislikes the two-party system, nothing new here it does provide an interesting and well-researched he Say what you will about Jesse “The Body” Ventura — and many people will, describing the former Minnesota Guv as a “kook” — but he has a way of describing a cluttered, corrupt system in a simplistic, libertarian POV.
While this book doesn’t really offer many surprises yes, Jesse dislikes the two-party system, nothing new here it does provide an interesting and well-researched he credits a community college political scientist for assistance look into the two-party system and the dwindling faith many people have in our current political make-up.
As a member of the media, I can understand Ventura’s frustrations, though I was somewhat disappointed that he doesn’t have a true grasp on the underlying problem attacking today’s big media not the journalists, per se, but the corporate ownership interests eroding our information channels.
I liked how he took on the FCC and would also have liked to have read more about his thoughts on that impotent department. The terms “Democrips” and “Rebloodlicans” is creative and fun and he utilizes them throughout the book. Linking the big donors with the parties adds context and his defense of Ron Paul makes sense. A fun, quick read if you like Jesse or thought he was interesting at times. If you gangw stand him or find him to be a complete goof, then move along.
Nov 25, Tanner rated it really liked it Recommends it democrkps I definitely enjoyed this book. Although I found it to ramble slightly in the middle, the majority of information presented was very good. No matter what party you align yourself with, you should be able to realize that our current system is nothing more than the rich helping the rich. Over and over and over again we allow officials with clear conflict of interests to pass bills and laws for us. One thing this book does well is show that our government is a total racket, no matter rebliodlicans you look a I definitely enjoyed this book.
One thing this book does well is show that our government is a total racket, no matter how you look at it. Jul 18, Joann rated it really liked it. Ventura is right on the mark. Until we close the gap on the “very rich” and the middle class, there is never going to be an equality of wealth among us.
We need to get people in the White House like there used to be back in the day who actually cared about the people and not about how much more money they could make or tax breaks. May 09, Lana Bradstream rated it really liked it. Ventura makes some solid arguments. This is a wonderful book for those who have become disillusioned with our current political system.
DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans: No More Gangs in Government by Jesse Ventura
The only problem I have with it is Ventura’s strong push for Ron Paul. It would have been stronger without his endorsement of a candidate. Oct 01, Jeff rated it liked it Shelves: I liked the book’s theme of a no-party system; however, even though I’m interested in finance, I think the average person will quickly tire of pages of statistics and dollars and put the book down. Oct 19, Lauren rated it it was ok Shelves: Ventura spotlights some important issues in this book.
So first off, the name calling. It’s all gwngs this book, and I don’t like it. I don’t like it when our president does it, and I don’t govefnment it when anyone else does it either. Secondly, he lapses into conspiracy theory a few different times, another thing I’m not a fan of. He also takes cheap shots. If you want to be a humorist which I have to assume Ventura is partia Ventura spotlights some important issues in this book. If you want reblokdlicans be a humorist which I have to assume Ventura is partially govrnment to dothat’s fine, but certain things are below the belt.
Most of what Ventura says falls into the realm of fair if sometimes petty and juvenile game, but a democripw times he wandered well outside of that. Also, for someone who’s so intent on spotlighting the research he’s conducted, his citations can be pretty weak. A bunch of them come from not-terribly-reputable sources, but even more surprising to me was how often he left quotes uncited.
If you are going ggangs show your work and provide citations, the one thing you should always, always provide citations for without exception is quotes. Jul 20, Kyle rated it liked it Shelves: Boyfriend showed me the cover of this book as he was working in the library. I thought it was hilarious so I told him to check it out for me. The audiobook for this book is wild, like an educated crackhead talking to you about democripps crazy opinions about politics and government.
Like you find yourself nodding in rebloodlicns to his words but sometimes you come to reality and realize you’re still listening to a crackhead. The narrator’s voice slips in and out of a southern drawl and it drove me up the Boyfriend showed me the cover of this book as he was working in the library. The narrator’s voice slips in and out of a southern drawl and it drove me up the walls listening to him say ‘hunderd’ instead of ‘hundred’.
Jesse makes some good points, but he sucks Ron Paul’s dick so much towards the end of the book that it made me roll my eyes. It’s an okay book, that’s about it. Jul 18, Wade, Rosario, and Marco rated it it was amazing. Rosario read this one his 4th Jesse Ventura book and thought it was great. One is not enough! I had the great pleasure of reading an advance copy of this book and let me tell you— it pulls NO punches.
The book details and documents how our electoral and legislative process has been taken over through a corrupt process of lobbyists and campaign contributing by corporations and the wealthy. You know that nice feeling you get, when you finally hear what you know is the truth, jn loudly and clearly.
You get a ton of that with this book. The quotes in the book are fantastic. Here are just a few to get you started: People losing their jobs and homes are kore collateral damage to these people.
Just like civilians who get caught in the crossfire are just collateral damage to the street gangs. Oct 07, Ned rated it really liked it. Some people rebloolicans not agree with the message of the book.
But I found it rebloodlicajs informative. There are a lot of people that agree that money and corporations need to be removed from politics. Believe it or not, our government keeps their surreptitious agendas away from the American people.
DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans: No More Gangs in Government
It is ludicrous to think that we truly have a free press. The facts that Mr. I started to think to myself how could people be so trusting of a government that constantly has scandals.
Do our votes really count? Bush signed legislation that all voting machines have to be upgraded.
Who are the ones that are going demlcrips regulate these new electronic voting machines? How do we know that the software cannot be hacked? Ventura would like to abolish the Electoral College system, remove party identifiers from candidates, and go to a no party system. I agree that the Electoral College system is outdated. Why is the President of the United States the only office not elected by popular vote?
People have been so brain washed that they vote by party lines, and not by what they think is right. I like governmenh Mr. Ventura pointed out all the money being thrown at our politicians.
