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."

Jesse is right! Remember the good old times when the U.S. biggest problem was a guy, who was getting *******s in the Oral Office?

What's up with the video ? I get a 404 error .. really wanted to hear what this guy has to say. He's known to be out there but, at least he has the balls to say what he thinks and is willing to go on record with it. For that alone he gets my respect.

The USA needs a third political party to break a tie. But this guy was born an a-hole and just grew bigger.

Funny how the baggers who caused this made sure they themselves were paid.

Think about this, congress is paid $175,000. per year. Their work calendar is 126 days. if you do the math they are getting paid $3,805.18 per day to do nothing. I think they should get paid for the days they actually work. 126 days their salary should be $60...,401.70 per year!

I actually agree with this guy. As taxpayers we are not getting what we're "paying for" and until our government (congress, senate etc) start earning their keep we should refuse to pay taxes.
.
If politicians were employed in the "real world" (the one the rest of us are in) they'd be FIRED for not doing their job.

It's time to do some MAJOR housecleaning.

Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution authorizes the US Government to create and issue interest free money. So why is the Federal Government plunging future generations of Americans into unpayable debt by going to a privately-owned central bank to borrow money at interest?

Don't like HIM, but love the suggestion. Nothing about our government is right, NOTHING. But the foxes are in charge of the hen house so we are f'd people!
