Jesse Ventura

If The Govt. Isn't Working

WE SHOULDN'T PAY TAXES

10/2/2013 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jesse Ventura has a message for the U.S. government -- YOU DON'T WORK, WE SHOULDN'T HAVE TO PAY TAXES!!

The former governor and fake wrestler is still fuming over the shut down ... telling TMZ both the Republicans AND the Democrats are the bad guys -- and they should all be thrown out of office!!!

But JV doesn't just want people to get mad, he wants them to get even -- saying, "For every day the government is shut down, it should be that we don't have to pay income tax that day because they're not working."

He added, "They should all be voted out of their office for not doing their jobs ... and vote in everybody BUT Democrats or Republicans because this is what you end up with."

Our own government is shutdown because Obama needs more money to spend while putting our military on "I owe you's". In otherwords, we taxpaying citizens are being sacrificed in order for our government to continue paying the billions promised to our allies in other countries. Bad return on our own investment huh?

Once you get past his past lies of being a Seal, every once in a long while he comes up with something that makes sense!

So the question Jessie: What is you plan or plans to not pay taxes and not have the IRS and the rest of the FED's hunt US/us down

Yes, a public filibuster is a great idea, but a plan, yes Jessie, what's your plan?

Pretty funny how these tools just got themselves another paid vacation paid for by the tax payers. And if you really believe that they aren't getting their salaries, you're as stupid as they hoped you would be.

That's actually a legit point. Why pay for services not being rendered? Especially knowing that the furloughed government workers will get backpay for not having worked during the shutdown?

Good comment. That might make them think twice and negotiate instead of shutting down. No politicians salary should be paid right now either!!!

I agree I think all the politicians is all messed up bc since 2001until now has been war with military. And that's the reason why we are in more debt that's from both presidents so we just can't blame one we have to blame both bc we a citizens. Been paying for food stamps all other things which has put us in debt and u have to understand. The land of the free so that mean we can do wat we want lol I'm just. Saying
