Publisher's Summary

Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura decries the ease with which most Americans surrender their freedoms and apathetically accept a system of governance driven more by pork patronage than by the best interests of the constituency. He also denounces an irresponsible media, taking them to task for too often confusing fame with notoriety, and for driving the news instead of simply reporting it. And he unabashedly speaks out on today's hot-button issues, including welfare, racism, abortion, campaign finance reform, and gay rights.

Giving us fascinating insights into the future of independent parties, Governor Ventura ushers us deep into the polished corridors of power, exposing the best - and worst - of our current crop of political personalities, while laying out a workable strategy for bringing our political system - and its politicians - back to greatness.

In a forthright, razor-sharp, and entertaining critique, Governor Ventura has thrown down the gauntlet, challenging today's politicians as well as a disenchanted public to transcend the tired rhetoric and defiantly reclaim the freedom and opportunity that is our American birthright.

    "Do I Stand Alone?"

    I really think that Gov. Ventura gave a detailed account of what his political views are. He really explains how the Dems and Repubs really work. He presses the idea that this country needs a third party or even more parties. We need more than the usual cookie cutters running the show in this country. Gov. Ventura is correct by promoting the unicameral idea for the state house. He is right on the money with the tax situation in this country. There is too much government bloat in this country. I really recommend this book. A must read for a person interested in third party politics.

    "He said what needed to be said."

    The testimony that Mr. Ventura gives us about the right and wrong doings of the government and citizen spectrum is spot on. To those who don't like his point of view, I challenge you to find the facts yourself and come to a better conclusion, which is futile in my opinion.
