    New York Times Bestselling Author Jesse Ventura 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.

    Using historical details, such as the development of the two-party system and the advent of third-party candidates throughout U.S. history, DemoCRIPS and ReBLOODlicans exposes how the two major parties have allowed corporations, businesses and politically-motivated wealthy individuals to manipulate elections, bribe elected officials and silence the average American voter.

    Exposing the ineptitude and gang-like mentalities of both parties, Ventura advocates the replacement of the two-party system with a no-party system based on the ideals of our Founding Fathers.

    Excerpt from the Introduction

    Let me start out by explaining the title of this book for those readers who might not be familiar with the Crips and the Bloods. The Crips were a street gang founded in Southern California in 1969 and were looking to unite local gang members in South Central Los Angeles to battle other street gangs. According to Crips founder Stanley Tookie Williams, blue eventually became the color associated with the cramps after one of their first members, Buddha (who habitually wore a blue bandana), was shot and killed in February 1973.

    As time went on, the Crips became popular and were able to incorporate other games into their ranks. With more than 35,000 estimated members, the groups engaged in a whole slew of illegal activities, ranging from drug distribution and extortion to the general spread of gang related violence through the 70' and 80's.

    The Bloods formed in reaction to the Crips in 1972. Initially founded by members of the Pirus street gang, a faction that broke off from the Crypt, the Bloods set themselves apart by resorting to extreme violence and the production of crack cocaine in the 1980's. (They got some help with that from the federal government, which used the proceeds to fund the Nicaraguan Contras.) The color for Bloods, not too surprisingly, is red.

    Okay think about this for a moment. The color schemes, for example. Think "red states" and "blue states." Aren't the Republicans considered the "red state" party, and the Democrats "blue" like the Crips? Besides trying to kill each other off while building up their own coffers with funds for favors , don't the Republicans and the Democrats do everything they can to incorporate any "neighborhood neighboring street gang?"

    The current state of political discourse and activity in our country is one that bears a close resemblance to gangland warfare. So in my view, it is highly appropriate to equate "DemoCrips" and "ReBloodlicans" with their street counterparts. The only difference is that the two parties (gangs) have been at it longer. The two gangs have their turf, and that's what they protect. They are identically with street gangs do they are paid by members of the gang all decisions are made within the gang there's hierarchy within the gang. Gang members became the admired objects of rap songs, and the party gang members have become media celebrities.

    And why do we allow them to use a fun word like party? When you say party you think of a joyous occasion. My Webster's Dictionary defines party "as a social gathering or assembly of persons for entertainment amusement or pleasure," as in partygoer, party time, party girls, party hearty, party on, and so forth. Everybody loves to party! Well, I guess our politics have pretty much become entertainment, but you think we might a governance more seriously than to just identify it with party. 


    It is my hope that this book put put forward a step toward winning back our country. For the first time, I've taken a new position. From my perspective, I can't be an advocate anymore for third party politics. I know this might stun some people, but I no longer support any third party. I happily wore that banner with pride for six or seven years. However I've got to face the reality that the two parties control the system to such an extent that,to be viable, a third party would have to sell out and become just as bad.

    Look at the Tea Party, it's already become corrupt! I'll spell out the details as we go along. When the major players are Glenn Beck and his ilk, I don't see that as a good alternative. It just adds another head to the already two headed monster.

    So I am in favor of abolish all political parties within the system. To what level can we take that? Do we have the ability to remove them from ballots, to where people simply run by the names and are not identified by party? Wouldn't it become incumbent upon us, the people, to know who these people are, rather than simply going out and voting for a specific party line?

    The party line isn't what this country was supposed to be about. If we go back to our founding fathers, when they created these United States, it wasn't so that we would go to vote for the political agenda of a particular group. They had in mind that we would vote for individuals and what each individual stood for. Now, could the individual be endorsed by a political party? Certainly that could happen, just the same as you could be endorsed by any other special interest group, the teachers union or whatever. It still leaves that freedom in place but the domination by these games has got to end! Hey, if competition is good for our economy, why isn't the same true for our politics?
