Pretty fascinating and bizzare all at the same time. And it has been chippy.

People complain about the two-party system, corporate contributions, etc. But Ventura is a good example of why you might not want true "outsider" politicians; you get whackjobs that think 9/11 was staged by the government.

Well in all reality, there were certain factions of our political structure whom did indeed have a hand in the enablence and cover-up of 9/11. "Whackjobs" wouldnt exactly be an accurate adjective of those who believe this. The evidence speaks largely in contradiction to the official account, and anyone who believes the pitiful attempt of an explaination that the 9/11 Commission Report offers, with its obvious inaccuracies, omitted information, and paid-off "science," should more rightfully be deemed with a questionable level of sanity. It's really pretty obvious when you start to open your eyes to these shenanigans.

Eloquently worded Venom. I believe the Romney campaign could use your talents.

Conspiracy theories are rational attempts to make sense of senseless events

Roughly one third of Americans believe that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job. Before British readers start to feel smug, the Telegraph’s blogs editor reports that around 25 percent of young Britons feel the same way. Theories of what really happened range from a controlled explosion, to a missile, while potential culprits include the United States government, freemasonry, Israel and shape-shifting lizards from the Draco solar system.

Some of the comments at the bottom of this article are quite amusing to me.

Wow I wouldve never guessed that around 1/3 of Americans believe 9/11 was an inside job...if thats truly the case, there has to be an assload of closet "truthers" out there...becuase my real world experience doesnt seem to reflect that, haha. Would be awesome though.

The fact that a surprising number of people believe crazy things is why we benefit from a political system that puts filters, like parties, and yes, the need to raise funds, between the voters and the process. The so-called science behind the conspiracy threories has been debunked many times over, but like right wingers on climate change or lefties on genetically modified foods "truthers" aren't going to hear science that contradicts what they want to believe. So we count on party leaders and rich donors, who usually have to have at least a little common sense to get where they are, to filter them out of our politics.

Aside from his anti-religion slant, I love Ventura, and wish he would've ran this year instead of us having another election of "choose who will F up the least." If he runs in 2016, it will be the first election I participate in.
