DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans uncovers the truth about how corporations have bought the American electoral and legislative process through the power of lobbyists, campaign contributions, and political action committees.

Publisher's Summary

DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans uncovers the truth about how corporations have bought the American electoral and legislative process through the power of lobbyists, campaign contributions, and political action committees. Using historical details, such as the development of the two-party system and the advent of third-party candidates throughout U.S. history, DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans exposes how the two major parties have allowed corporations, businesses, and politically-motivated wealthy individuals to manipulate elections, bribe elected officials, and silence the average American voter.

Exposing the ineptitude and ganglike 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 to for reforming our electoral system.

    How government and and corporations work toward their bottomlines and not what's good for the constituents and consumers.

    Story
    "Buy Yourself some Influence or Get Screwed"

    Jesse says. the rich get richer, because they buy themselves the right members of the 2 Gangs, the Republicans and Democrat Party. He has got most of the facts right, but he really does not understand the root cause of all that corruption. We cannot fix the problem by getting rid of the 2 parties or changing to a multiparty system, a la Europe.

    While Jesse supports Ron Paul for his push to reign in the Military/Industrial Complex, abolish Foreign Aid and Corporate Welfare; he is opposed to reforming entitlements or reign in excessive Union influence.

    What Jesse misses is that starting with Woodrow Wilson, the Federal Government has assumed powers far beyond those enumerated in the Constitution and the only way to cut the corruption is to shrink the Federal Government back to the enumerated powers and return those powers to the States.

    Story
    "Interesting but Take with a Grain of Salt"
    What disappointed you about DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans?

    Constant quotes without identification of the leanings of the quoters. I already know the untrustworthiness of the groups like the NYT, so, why would I believe any quotes from them?


    How could the performance have been better?

    Probably if he had a better book.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes, the refreshing part was that he did put both parties in the same boat. I would agree with him that they are co-conspirators in the downfall of our nation, and constitution.

    Story
    "Interesting ideas"

    This is a very thought provoking book. While the references to gangs was a bit of a stretch at times, there were many examples of how Democrats and Republicans have worked to retain power rather than helping the nation.

    The narrator is good, but I would have liked it more if Jesse did his own narration.

    Story
    "Wow, an eye opener"
    Where does DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Two wrongs don't make a right but it is great to hear that other countries are also corrupt, and not just South Africa where I live


    What did you like best about this story?

    Behind the scenes information that you don't hear on the news


    Which scene was your favorite?

    non fiction


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    How governments rip us all off


    Any additional comments?

    I really liked the way the author did not take sides as both parties are to blame for the problems that USA seems to have. As an outsider, it seems strange that you can't find better Presidential candidates out of all your Millions of people in USA

    "Good if your into money trails"

    This book has good information in it and is well written. Personally I got bored trying to understand the econimics of politics and trying to grasp how the money filters around all the politicians and interest groups. That doesnt mean its not great, its just not my area of expertise and I found it hard to fully take in. The general points do come across well and overall im glad I read (listened to) it. I like his politics and this confirmed that he is smart and knows how the system works and its faults. Id definately vote for him!
