(CNN) – Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura is back and angrier than ever at both political parties.
"I never vote Democrat or Republican," the former wrestler said on CNN's Larry King Live Tuesday night. "I will pick someone else, a libertarian on the ballot. Someone else. I will not vote for a republican or democrat. I don't do it every election - I wish they would allow none of the above on the ballot."
On his own political future, Ventura said he is not planning on running for president because of the difficulty third party candidates have in securing ballot access.
"Am I going to run? Too difficult," he said. "Because they make an independent like me jump through 50 different hoops because every state has different things you have to do to qualify to get on the ballot."

Hillary needs to run as an independent
This jerk couldn't handle being Governor much less president, why is he even being ask this question?
I can't believe this guy was the governor of a State!
CNN is this really important news????
Who cares what this guy has to say anyway !
There is no way that you would win the presidency anyway. We have been humiliated enough having a cheerleader-dolt for the past 7-plus years. We do not need a pro wrestler! Good God!
Please let us elect someone with a brain this time!
Why are we even covering this guy???????
Golly gee, this is really news worthy. I will now sleep better at night.
It would prove interesting if he or some other well known independant could be on the ballot on all 50 states. As of now, I don't think that there is anyone out there that is good enough and could get on the ballot in all 50 states that would be electable. If you are going to to do that, there needs to be a really wealthy guy (or group of people) to gather behind one person that could rally behind.
So now we've heard from Fifty Cent and Jesse Ventura. When is Carrot Top going to weigh in?
Jesse understands how all we get fed from the two parties is political HACKS!
You ran Minn. like a big dummy. Vince your long time boss for WWE was holding the strings and you did just what he said and Minn saw unemployment rise and job losses. Go do something with your hair and leave this kind of work for people like Obama.
He doesn't have time to bleed. Or vote in a two-party system.
Jesse is back!!! Way back.
Get a hair cut!
I agree 100% with Jesse. I wish none of them were on the ballot. I will not vote. They lost me a long time ago. Too much bickering and no solid answers to anything. This whole thing is a joke. Not one of them has told me what they are going to do for me.
You have to admit the man is colorful. People will listen to him, good or bad, they will listen to him
If it is "too difficult" for you to jump through the hoops of registering in all the 50 states you want to lead, then you certainly shouldn't be running for president. Good call, Ventura.
A slow news day CNN?
Hey Jesse, Maybe Lou Dobbs can convince you to run for president. Any Independent to him is better than the qualified candidates we have now. But be careful, he changes his mind daily.
I would vote for Jesse Ventura for President!!
Too Bad Jesse. It all about money which you probably don't have enough of.
At least he is a better choice then Obama...
I am from Minnesota and I can say WHAT A CLOWN. No one but the intellectually challenged should care what he thinks about politics. Now, if he was talking about wrestling them maybe he should be acknowledged.
I saw this interview with Larry King last night and he was really good. I agreed with just about everything he said. He made the other talking heads look like the spinsters they are.
