In wrestling, my mustache made me look more like a villain. A good mustache can give you the look of the devil.
Congratulations, you have a sense of humor. And to those who didn’t: Go stick your head in the mud.
The communism of Karl Marx would probably be actually the best for everybody as a whole. But what he didn’t figure into was human nature, and that’s what corrupts it.
Monsanto can do anything they want to you, and put anything they want into your foods. There’s nothing you can do about it.
Patriotism is voluntary. It is a feeling of loyalty and allegiance that is the result of knowledge and belief. A patriot shows their their patriotism through their actions, by their choice.
All of us should have free choice when it comes to patriotic displays… a government wisely acting within its bounds will earn loyalty and respect from its citizens. A government dare not demand the same.
I think the founding fathers believed religion shouldn’t interact directly with government.
I don’t have to muzzle myself when I’m a civilian. When you’re a governor, you kind of have to do it, because you represent the whole state. You have to leave your personal opinions to yourself a lot. I learned that.
There is much more to being a patriot and a citizen than reciting the pledge or raising a flag.
If you want to stop illegal immigration, you have to make it so that – so that the people that hire the illegal immigrants will not be in a position to hire them.
I’m going to put on my gravestone, ‘He never owned a cell phone.’
Okay, fluoride in the water to help our teeth. Well, shouldn’t that be the job of your mom and dad? To teach you how to brush your teeth and use mouth wash? What do we need the government to do it for? Clearly, what a scam. Fluoride in the water.
Let’s face it: WikiLeaks exists because the mainstream media haven’t done their job.
I would give the people of America to their first opportunity to elect a president who doesn’t belong to either party since George Washington.
Disabled people need more invested in their education, housing, job training, transportation, assistive technology, and independent-living facilities. Governments earn back this investment – and more – by making people with disabilities economically productive citizens.
Health insurance should be a given for every citizen.
My father used to always say to me that, you know, if a guy goes out to steal a loaf of bread to feed his family, they’ll give him 10 years, but a guy can do white-collar crime and steal the money of thousands and he’ll get probation and a slap on the wrist.
I believe patriotism comes from the heart. Patriotism is voluntary. It is a feeling of loyalty and allegiance that is the result of knowledge and belief.
Students often approached me about state-paid tuition while I was out campaigning. After I explained to them that if the state pays their tuition now, they will pay higher taxes to pay other people’s tuition for the rest of their lives, most of them ended up agreeing with me.
I’m tolerant of all religions… I don’t care if someone wants to go out there and worship the bark on a tree.
I asked Dalai Lama the most important question that I think you could ask – if he had ever seen Caddyshack.
Industrial hemp is a very useful plant. I challenged the attorney general to get rid of the criminal stigma associated with hemp so we can look at it in terms of how it might be useful
Mexico has strict gun control. You cannot own a gun in Mexico.
If you work for the federal government, the average salary is $7,000 higher than the private sector. Something’s wrong with that, when you’re making more money working for the government than you can working in the private sector.
Tell the truth because then you don’t have to have a good memory.
You have to accept the rule of law, even when it’s inconvenient, if you’re going to be a country that bides by the rule of law. Jesse Ventura
Let me say this: I’m paranoid of the government. They’ve lost my trust. They’ve lied to me so many times that I don’t know what to believe from them anymore
Wrestling is ballet with violence
When the Constitution gave us the right to bear arms, it also made us responsible for using them properly. It’s not fair of us as citizens to lean more heavily on one side of that equation than on the other.
There’s no question that we need tougher drunk-driving laws for repeat offenders. We need to take a lesson from European countries where driving isn’t a right but a privilege
If you’re smart enough to go to college, you should be smart and creative enough to pay for it.
Democrats are so spineless, so afraid to go against the tide… but dissension is the greatest form of patriotism.
I have metal in my body, so every time I go to an airport, the metal detector goes off.
I’m an Angus King independent.
Whenever the government says, ‘It’s time to move on,’ that means there’s something they don’t want you to know about.
If you start studying history closer, you’ll find that most all wars are based on false flag operations to get people – to convince the people that they’re under attack in some way so that they will support the wars.
I’m a Slovak. And when I was growing up, I believed that I was Czechoslovakian because of what Russia did. They came in and took two separate countries – Slovakia and the Czech Republic – put them together as one.
I would rather be uncomfortable with the truth than to be lied to in comfort. That’s just my nature.
Let’s remember, the CIA’s job is to go out and create wars.
You can’t legislate morality.
Liberty is security. Freedom is security.
I believe to go along to get along is unpatriotic. I believe that agreeing with your government on everything they do is unpatriotic. I believe a patriot stands up and holds your government’s feet to the fire. Because if you do that, you will get good government.
I’m against the draft. I believe we should have a professional military; it might be smaller, but it would be more effective.
Al Gore, you’ve been a real inspiration. But a lot of other people who preach the global warming gospel aren’t out to save the world. They’re out to run it.
Patriotism to your country is something that comes from your heart. It should be taught to you by your parents.
Organized religion is a sham and a crutch for weak-minded people who need strength in numbers. It tells people to go out and stick their noses in other people’s business.
If you were to come to Minnesota, I could have you locked up like that. That’s power.
As governor, there isn’t a lot I can do beyond that to crack down on crime. Law enforcement is really a local issue. It’s the cops’ job to tighten down on criminals.
Government works less efficiently when it begins to grow out of control and takes on more and more of the responsibilities that belong to the citizens.
Government’s role should be only to keep the playing field level, and to work hand in hand with business on issues such as employment. But beyond this, to as great an extent as possible, it should get the hell out of the way.
I also believe that government has no business telling us how we should live our lives. I think our lifestyle choices should be left up to us. What we do in our private lives is none of the government’s business. That position rules out the Republican Party for me.
I believe in the America people’s ability to govern themselves. If government would just get out of the way and allow them to lead their lives as they choose, they will succeed.
I decided to run for governor because I got mad… I want to make government more directly accountable to the people.
I don’t believe we need the government’s help as much as some think we do. That belief sets me apart from the Democrats, since their way of dealing with everything is to tax and spend.
I don’t support abortion. I could never participate in one. But I think it would be a mistake to make them illegal again.
I don’t think I would want the responsibility for enforcing the death penalties. There’s always the inevitable question of whether someone you gave the order to execute might truly have been innocent.
I don’t want to spend the rest of my life in politics. When I’m finished with my term as governor, I’m going back to the life that’s waiting for me in the private sector.
I speak my mind. If it offends some people, well, there’s not much I can do about that. But I’m going to be honest. I’m going to continue to speak my mind, and that’s who I am.
Politics is not my life. I have a career in radio and another career in film
Remember that government doesn’t earn one single dollar it spends. In order for you to get money from the government, that money must first be taken from somebody else.
