Here are some highlights of what Stevie Richards had to say:
On Hurricane Sandy: I have my own theories and opinions on how these storms come together, especially just before one of the most important elections in our history. The timing is just too convenient. I donít want to sound like a nutjob, but there was an electronic piece of equipment in Alaska that was activated the day before (the storm) turned to the northeast, and (that piece of equipment) on a scale of 1-10, was dialed to a 10+.
On Government Aide: Without going into conspiracy theories, new world order, or any of that other stuff, just donít trust the government. Donít count on the government to be there for you. They werenít there for Katrina, and I hope that the people of New York and New Jersey arenít counting on the government to help them.
On the Upcoming Election: Most people donít do their own research, they donít read, and they donít hold politicians accountable for what they say; thatís why they can lie so much. A lot of evil people run the country. People know that money controls the world.
On Linda McMahon: Hereís what doesnít make sense. Why would she spend 9 figures to get a job thatís going to pay her 6 figures? It doesnít make sense. Sheís not a politician or a statesperson like Jesse Ventura or like I will be in the future. (Sheís in it to lobby for her overall business interests with WWE) Thatís common sense.
On his Aspirations for Public Office: When I decide that the time is right to take that step, I will be a statesperson, not a politician. I take the time to learn about the government and whatís going on in the world with my own two eyes and my own ears. I determine what I feel is true or false myself.
On Politicians as Puppets for Corporate Interest: We do not live in a democracy, we live in a state of Corporate Fascism. I think people should investigate online. There was recently a third party debate (with candidates that are not democratic or republican) and that debate was one of the most unique, civil, and fact filled debates Iíve ever seen. Jesse (Ventura) is on point when he calls our system the ďDemocripsĒ and ďRebloodicansĒ because itís a 2 party gang system. It comes down to keeping people as a whole down; they want to keep everyone in a certain spot, and thatís unfortunately where weíre at. Whether you choose Obama or Romney, itís not going to change anytime soon.
On Never Getting the Opportunity to be a Star in Wrestling: Iím the poster child for guys that work hard and never got the opportunity (I deserved). Itís a political thing. Johnny Ace says that 5% of what you do in the ring matters, and 95% of your success is what you do backstage; who you talk to and make friends with. Iíve never been a politics guy; I was just respectful and worked as hard as I could. For some reason, they always looked at me and said, ďyouíre this guy, and youíre always going to be this guy.Ē
