This week: Dave's disgust with American citizens running for office in the United States of America

On Dave "I'm all about the truth" Willis' recent post here, titled....actually there is no title to it, Dave Willis expresses his disgust about Al Franken winning the Senate race in Minnesota. Dave the Fraud writes, "If this guy is Minnesota's new Senator then you can add that state to my growing list of places where I will never live! Governor Jesse "The Body" Ventura was bad enough, but this proves his election was no anomaly. First a "professional" wrestler and now a comedian! I'm all for anyone having a shot at political office, but Minnesota could do better."
Naturally, "all about the truth" Willis fails to mention one thing that made Jesse Ventura a bad governor, nor does he mention anything that makes Franken bad outside of the fact that Ventura was a wrestler/actor and Franken is a comedian.
In fact, on several occasions I have seen Dave say on his blog that he dismisses the neoconservatives and clings to those who are more Independent. So why does he dislike Ventura, who is currently with the Independence party of Minnesota? Ventura is a strong constitutionalist and believes strongly in personal liberty and has even supported Ron Paul (as Willis has claimed he has as well), including being a guest speaker at Ron Paul's Rally for the Republic on September 2, 2008.
Dave must be a diehard Republican and not a third party advocate after all. Maybe Dave is just a big Norm Coleman fan, after all the only two times Coleman has ever lost elections, he lost to.....Ventura and Franken. Hardly a coincidence.
This all boils down to the fact that religious people are complete morons when it comes to knowing what is best for the country. This is the very reason why the founding fathers wanted religion to be completely separate from political issues. Willis is just one of the masses of duped people that whenever they see the word "Republican" next to a politicians name, it must mean they have been ordained by the hand of God.
Who cares if Coleman is a Freemason? That means nothing to Willis. Who cares if Coleman supported the Iraq war, the REAL ID Act, the Military Commissions Act? Who cares if Coleman co-sponsored the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007? Who cares if Coleman voted to grant legal immunity to telecom corporations that cooperated with the NSA warrantless surveillance program? Who cares if Coleman (although agreeing that waterboarding is torture) opposed a measure that would have outlawed its use by the CIA? Who cares if 90% of everything Coleman voted on was in complete agreement with the Bush administration? Who cares? Willis voted for Ron Paul because he said he hated neocons? What's Coleman but a younger George W. Bush with a prettier wife?
I guess Willis just doesn't like Ventura because Ventura is a free thinker and has spoken out against religion and Dave Willis just doesn't like it. In his 1999 memoir titled, "I Ain't Got Time To Bleed", Ventura said:
"I don’t have any problem with the vast majority of religious folks. I count myself among them, more or less. But I believe because it makes sense to me, not because I think it can be proven. There are lots of people out there who think they know the truth about God and religion, but does anybody really know for sure? That’s why the founding fathers built freedom of religious belief into the structure of this nation, so that everybody could make up their minds for themselves. But I do have a problem with the people who think they have some right to try to impose their beliefs on others. I hate what the fundamentalist fanatics are doing to our country. It seems as though, if everybody doesn’t accept their version of reality, that somehow invalidates it for them. Everybody must believe the same things they do. That’s what I find weak and destructive."
My goodness, does Ventura know Dave Willis?
Yeah....Dave doesn't like it when people are HONEST and ADMIT that they don't really know if God is there or not. Despite the fact that Willis is among the people who deep down do not really KNOW that God is there (how do I know this? because he's a HUMAN BEING), he goes on pretending he does know for sure because if he admits that he's not sure, he will be run out of his job and lose his home. What a complete sell-out and fraud.
So, Dave is left with no choice but to create a phony blog that he visits every few days to post to his sheeple audience that he still believes in talking donkeys, talking snakes and 500 year old men who build Titanic-sized boats by themselves with wood that was magically cut with the bandsaw of God and without nails. Dave doesn't need evidence. If he's against it, it's wrong. If he supports it, it's right, regardless of research, evidence or proof.
I'd respect Dave more if he actually gave REASONS for not liking Ventura or Franken (even if I disagreed), but no, Dave "all about the truth" Willis won't even stoop so low as to list even ONE reason (outside of the fact that Ventura and Franken were in the entertainment business). I didn't realize that if you were a comedian or a wrestler that you couldn't run in a Senate or Gubernatorial race. I thought all you had to be was an American citizen. Even that makes John McCain unqualified.
