Why this wrestler, ghost hunter and Libertarian is running for governor 
8/12/2018- Covington Leader- 
by Jeff Ireland


Vinnie Vineyard is not going to be the next governor of Tennessee.

When Tennessee voters go to the polls Nov. 6, they will elect Republican Bill Lee or Democrat Karl Dean, both of whom won their primaries earlier this month.

But, as is always the case, there will be a long list of independents on the ballot.

One of those names will be Vinnie Vineyard, a professional wrestler and the host of a local ghost hunting show in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.

Vineyard, who goes by the name FunkMaster V in the wrestling ring, is not a dumb man. He knows he's not going to be living in the governor's mansion next year.

But he, along with other Tennessee Libertarians who will be sprinkled on the ballot in November, are trying to make a point. They don't believe in the two-party system.

Vineyard, who is getting his campaign cranked up this month by posting videos on YouTube, utilizing social media and calling newspapers around the state (like this one), believes the two-party system and FunkMaster V have a lot in common.

Truth be told, the reason I'm getting involved in politics, the reason I'm doing well in politics, is the fact that pro wrestling and politics are identical,” he said during a recent phone interview. “You have two people who go out and pretend they hate each other. When the match is over they go back behind the curtain and talk about delicious food and the big-legged women on the front row.”

Vineyard, or FunkMaster V, is clearly not a traditional candidate for governor. In one of his YouTube videos he talks about 2016 Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson, “reefer” and getting a hair cut.

If Gary Johnson can stop smoking reefer to run for president, I guess the least I could do is cut off all this hair to run for governor of the great state of Tennessee,” Vineyard says with his long hair flowing. One second later there's a quick cut to a grinning Vineyard with much shorter hair.

Hello, ladies,” he says, “and guys.”

Later he encourages voters to “get on the Funk Train” before letting out a “toot, toot!”

That's not to say Vineyard doesn't have some serious points to make.

He doesn't think its fair that Democrats, Republicans and independents only need 25 signatures on a petition to get on the ballot, while anybody wishing to have a third-party affiliation next to their name need about 40,000, which is a percentage of those who voted in the previous election.

It's set up intentionally by the two major parties to confuse voters,” Vineyard said. “You don't know if these people (running as independents) are Nazis, insane, whatever. It limits choices, which in Tennessee is a problem anyway. A lot of people don't have a lot of time to research, so they vote for a party.”

Vineyard said it took him three hours to get 37 names on a petition, which means 40,000 is impossible for him and most other third-party candidates.

At this point, most people interested in politics are aware of the Libertarian Party.

Ask Vineyard about his party and he'll mention the normal talking points: decriminalizing marijuana, peace and a smaller, less-intrusive government.

It's not just a political party, it's a philosophy,” he said. “Our philosophy is based on the non-agression principal. Basically, everything should be legal unless it harms, potentially harms or neglects another human being.”

His main point, however, seems to be enabling those outside of the two-party system to have a meaningful role in government.

Democrats and Republicans love the discord they create, but the truth of the matter is, we're not that different as Americans. We only have a few minor differences, most of which are stupid anyway.”
