“Love is bigger than government” – Jesse Ventura Makes Sense

Now that he is out of office, Jesse Ventura seems to feel free to make some sense again:

    “We have a representative-style government. Represent your people and vote and stand by what you believe in,” said Ventura, who as a professional wrestler was known for his flamboyant costumes. “Civil rights issues should not be put on the ballot.”

    Currently a fellow at Harvard University’s Institute of Politics, Ventura appeared at the Statehouse alongside State Auditor Joseph DeNucci, a former boxer.

    “We’re two tough guys here to show support for a basic human right,” DeNucci said.

    Clad in jeans and sneakers and wearing a full beard and a shaggy ring of hair, Ventura asked, “How is my marriage under attack if two gays or lesbians down the street want to make a lifelong commitment to themselves?”

    Ventura, a one-term governor elected on the Reform Party ticket, added: “Love is bigger than government. Think about that.” [AP]

I have thought about it Jesse, and I think you’re right.
