Jesse Venturaâformer governor, wrestler, and Navy SEALâon what's wrong with the Democrats, the Republicans, and politics in America.Jesse Ventura has had many livesâas a Navy SEAL, as a star of pro wrestling, as an actor, and as the governor of Minnesota. His previous books, I Ain't Got Time to Bleed and Do I Stand Alone?, were both national bestsellers. Don't Start the Revolution Without Me! is the story of his controversial gubernatorial years and his life since deciding not to seek a second term as governor in 2002. Written with award-winning author Dick Russell at a secluded location on Mexico's Baja Peninsula, Ventura's bestselling book reveals for the first time why he left politicsâand why he is now considering reentering the arena with a possible independent run for the presidency.
In a fast-paced and often humorous narrative, Ventura pulls no punches in discussing our corrupt two-party system, the disastrous war in Iraq, and what he suspects really happened on September 11. He provides personal insights into the Clinton and Bush presidencies, and elaborates on the ways in which third parties are rendered impotent by the country's two dominant parties. He reveals the illegal role of the CIA in states like Minnesota, sensitive and up-to-date information on the Blackwater security firm, the story of the American spies who shadowed him on a trade mission to Cuba, and what Fidel Castro told him about who really assassinated President John F. Kennedy. This unique political memoir is a must-read for anyone concerned about the direction that America will take. 16 color photographs

At any rate, Don't Start the Revolution Without Me is compelling and well worth reading. I highly recommend it.
The conclusions almost reached in this book left me wondering what the revolution was about. Yes, anti-status quo and all that good stuff, but how? When does it happen? Why can't HE start the revolution. Politically he was once in a great place to start.
It's a bit of a let down, but it can be enjoyed as a slice of history, both Gov. Ventura's and our nation's as well.
In the words of JFK "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."
I'll leave it at that and avoid wandering down the road of rehashing everything Jesse covered and away from the book by rambling on about things he didn't. Keeping it short, the Republic is in big trouble! I could go on rehashing what's already been said, but there are some stellar reviews on this book that I simply can not top. So here's my tip of the hat to the book and my recommendation.
