Once again - a patriot steps forward to destroy the Demopublican misdirection we've all come to know. "Torture is torture" Jesse says - I AGREE.
Why so often in the media does this become a technical brain cramp? Jesse does a great job of deflecting the "Nancy Pelosi said this" and "so-and-so did that." He also easily dismisses arguments claiming waterboarding is effective as a truth-finding tool.
This discussion is important because it has appeared in the popular mainstream media. Crucially, most people will find Ventura's no nonsense arguments entirely rational and appealing: prosecute everyone guilt of breaking the Law, waterboarding is torture etc.
People CAN become informed and encouraged to speak out against the criminals in government when prominent and respected individuals come forward. A few dedicated people can make a big difference.
While there is a huge online movement against government injustice there are other ways to "skin this corruption cat". All reasonable methods of appealing to the population at large should be tried. And things will change when EVERYONE knows.
