"Thank goodness for the blast of fresh air that is Jesse Ventura. . . . When it comes to the battle between liberal sanctimony and conservative obstinance known as the culture wars, he appeals to both sides."

-LA Times

DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans uncovers the truth about how corporations have bought the American electoral and legislative process through the power of lobbyists, campaign contributions and political action committees. Covering historical details such as the development of the two-party system and the advent of third-party candidates throughout US history, DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans exposes how the two-major parties, acting like a gang-land cabal, have allowed corporations, businesses and politically-motivated wealthy individuals to manipulate elections, bribe elected officials and, in short, silence the average American voter.

Exposing the ineptitude of both parties at insuring the integrity and vitality of American democracy, Jesse Ventura advocates the replacement of the two-party system for a no party system based on the ideals of our Founding Fathers. As election time rolls around, this is most certainly the book that should be looked at for reforming our electorate system. The knowledge and research that have gone into DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans is unmatched, and if there was to be change, this is most certainly where it should start!

Editorial Reviews

Activist Dick Russell and former wrestler and governor Jesse Ventura have authored or co-authored free-thinking manifestoes such as Don't Start the Revolution Without Me! and American Conspiracies. In their new opus, they lace into our two political parties, which they have view as rival gangs preying on the public. At the heart of their diatribes though are the corporations, business, and billionaires who use the now unbridled powers of lobbyists to exact their will on our citizenship. With a proposal that crosses ideological lines, they argue that we should return to the no-party system of our Founding Fathers.

Don’t Look Now but a Couple of GANGS HAVE TAKEN OVER THE GOVERNMENT! One is not enough! Jesse Ventura now takes on BOTH political parties! Get ready for a No-Holds-Barred attack on the political monopoly of two-party politics in America and the fact that they have a stranglehold on our political system, not to mention their very intentional EXCLUSION of other parties and Independents. It’s now a big game being controlled by the FATCATS, Folks-- and YOU CAN’T PLAY unless they let you in. The two political parties behave exactly like GANGS who have taken over a neighborhood. In fact, the book’s title is a reference to precisely that; the Bloods and the Crips who, also fought each other for decades, wreaking havoc on their “turf.” Republicans and Democrats have done the EXACT SAME THING. Only, in this case, they have TAKEN OVER OUR COUNTRY. I had the great pleasure of reading an advance copy of this book and let me tell you— it pulls NO punches. The book details and documents how our electoral and legislative process has been taken over through a corrupt process of lobbyists and campaign contributing by corporations and the wealthy. Let’s call it what it is, just like Jesse does— BRIBERY. But the book also details the way OUT of this mess— a NO-party system replacing the Two-party system, REWARDING INTEGRITY instead of ineptitude and cronyism. THAT WAS THE WISH OF THE FOUNDERS of this country and this book shows us how to get it! You know that nice feeling you get, when you finally hear what you know is the truth, spoken loudly and clearly. You get a ton of that with this book. The quotes in the book are fantastic. Here are just a few to get you started: “Wall Street gets bailed out, while average homeowners who got bilked by the banks go broke.” “Not one Street-wise exec gets prosecuted for mega fraud, but if you get caught selling an ounce of marijuana, hasta la vista, baby.” “Big money has corrupted the government— including the thievery of our election process.” “I love Wall Street, I just don’t like the crooks and conspirators who run it.” “89 percent of Americans say they ‘distrust government to do the right thing.’” Well, now it’s time that we, THE MAJORITY, do something about it. Ventura & Russell raise some very cogent points in this book and ask some great questions that we should all pay attention to. People losing their jobs and homes are just collateral damage to these people. Just like civilians who get caught in the crossfire are just collateral damage to the street gangs. Their SYSTEM of TWO-PARTY CONTROL ensures that THE RICH GET RICHER and THE POOR STAY POOR. That’s no coincidence. That’s the way that it’s designed! They control it and we’re not invited to the party. Why don’t we just abolish the whole two-party system? It doesn’t work unless you’re a Wall Street Fatcat or a Big Corporate Interest. So why not “open up the game” for everybody? “Hey, if competition is good for the economy, why isn’t the same true for politics?” With a presidential election coming up, there could not be a more important book or more appropriate time. It’s high time we reform our electoral process and this book leads the way. Enjoy!

I have not read any of Jesse's other books, but was hooked by the title. I found this to be a fun read filed with well documented sources supporting his observations and conclusions. He dumps on both major parties equally. Will add some perspective if you agree with him or not.

I could not put this book down. Read and reread. Also made me painfully aware that our news media do not inform the people of what is really going on or how our white collar crooks (except a couple sacrificed guys) not only remain free but are most likely rewarded with bonuses. Why not have daily postings of who took what pay offs from whom in our goverment. Their actions have caused chaos and disrespect for Americans around the world. I, for one, resent what has happened to this country. How can those voted in to represent us sell themselves like prostitues to the highest bidder? Or protect themselves, with laws they write, from things the average working guy would end up in jail for doing. These things need to be changed and now. Knowledge will be the beginning. This book and others like it should be taught from middle schools through college. With the TRUTH out there our young people could begin correcting and end the mess. Our Bankers, Congress, Corporations and others seem to think it's their right to bankrupt America, the American people. They know no shame or show any sense of morals. I for one am ready for the change to begin. .
