Clint Eastwood

Lifted this off of an interview with Clint Eastwood, his feelings on Michael Moore is what caught my attention.

"Eastwood still likes to let his views be known, often forcefully. In 2005, he vowed he'd kill Michael Moore if the documentarian ever showed up at his house, the way he had doorstepped Charlton Heston in Bowling for Columbine. This March he was sacked from Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's California state parks commission for objecting to the building of a toll road through a national forest. But though he has been associated in the public mind with Republican viewpoints, he's something of an individualist. "I don't pay attention to either side," he claims. "I mean, I've always been a libertarian. Leave everybody alone. Let everybody else do what they want. Just stay out of everybody else's hair. So I believe in that value of smaller government. Give politicians power and all of a sudden they'll misuse it on ya."

Has he declared for anybody in this electoral cycle? "You know, I haven't really," he says. "My wife used to be an anchorwoman in Arizona, so she knew John McCain and she liked him and I kinda liked him. In fact, we sort of supported him when he was running the first time against Bush eight years ago. But we haven't been active as yet. It's kind of a zoo out there right now. So I think I'll kinda let things percolate."

Makes sense.. John McCain lived during the period when most of Clint's movies took place.

Toll road through a National forrest?!!
It annoys me to have to pay a fee to use State parks. Let alone to visit the
Grand Canyon and other Federal reserves. What are our tax dollars paying for?
(Don't answer that ... it'll only make me madder)

Traditional Americans believe our county belongs to us. Communist believe our country belongs to the government.
