Jesse Ventura: Mitt Romney is Gordon Gecko
Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura on Wednesday blasted Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and the U.S. Supreme Court
“Corporations have no soul, all they have is a bottom line,” he said on Talking Liberally. “People need to understand that. When the Supreme Court ruled that corporations have the same equal rights as individuals and when they ruled that money is free speech, that was the lowest day in our country’s history in my opinion.”
Ventura said if the United States elected Romney, they would be electing Gordon Gecko, the greed-driven corporate raider from the film Wall Street.
“What Bain or whatever it was he worked for, that’s exactly what their job was. They were hostile corporate take overs. They would take over companies, they would shred them, and make huge profits and send everybody to the unemployment line.”
