As far as I can tell, the right wing is all about taking care of those with money/power, while pandering to groups like the religious right, tea party, etc. just to get ENOUGH votes when it comes to election time in order win elections (while at the same time allowing the US to fall further and further into a plutocracy while their pockets are being filled). And the left wing/democrat party is basically about that they are not quite as bad as the right wing most of the time and that some of the give a rat's ass about the poor and/or working poor.
I quite admired your acting skills, Mr Freeman.
But there goes my respect. :(
And you are going to have a damn hard time winning it back.
Why couldn't you just keep your politics to yourself and simply keep doing what you do best?
What, exactly, have they got on you?
You a toddler diddler, too?
The heck did you expect for an answer from people with a few brain cells still intact?
Sleuths in Mom's basement are going to dig it up, y'know, whatever your handlers' leverage on you is based upon...brace yourself.
You're on the NWO shill list now.
Too bad - I liked your cool voice, but from now on, it'll make me cringe whenever I hear it.
You are part of the problem, Mr Freeman, and no friend of mine, that's for sure.
And neither is Mr Putin - but I doubt you got the brain power to figure that one out.
I know we have never been a REAL democracy and the idea of fairness and justice in the US is about as laughable as it is in other places of the world since it is a given that only the rich, and upper middle class usually have any chance against the system if it turns against them for some reason.
If Russia meddled in our politics it probably isn't that much worse then they meddling we did to them and/or some of the meddling we have done with central and south american countries during the cold war. To be honest since it is legal for politicians to accept money to help them get elected and in many ways to fix elections than it should be that surprising to find other countries taking advantages of such things in our country whenever they can.
I mean when it is legal for politicians to get kickbacks and bribes from corporations (in order to pay fewer taxes, get treated with kid gloves when thy break the law, etc. ), then I see no reason to wet ourselves when some of that money is also coming from criminals and/or countries with agendas that are differnt than our own. Even if it is COMPLETELY ILLEGAL for a government employee to accept something so much as a cup of coffee from a vendor since such actions COULD POSSIBLY undermine their ability to be impartial when doing their job. Well as they say "do as I say, not as I do".
Politicians in both parties are concerned about making enormous amounts of money, and that's the end of that story. There's no difference between them, and any perceivable difference is only cosmetic.
