Jon Voight's Concerned for America

I usually don't pay much attention to opinions from members of the entertainment industry. Their job is to entertain, and unless they plan on running for office, I normally give their opinions about as much weight as I give an opinion offered by anyone else. Just because they're good at what they do (entertaining) doesn't mean they're automatically smarter than anyone else. Having said that, I did find this Op-Ed by Jon Voight in the Washington Times to be interesting. I'm not sure I give it any more weight than I'd give other people expressing their opinion . . . what I find interesting, though, is that Mr. Voight has the courage to express his in such a public way. After all, by expressing the opinion he has, he might be blacklisted by the entertainment elites. Check it out.

Very interesting article, my hat off to Mr. Voight for expressing what a lot of people are thinking but are afraid to say out loud. One of the beauties of this country is the FREEDOM to express opinions without fear of retribution.

I read Mr. Voight's piece and saw him on Fox News this morning. He expresses my thoughts much better than I can. Hope He keeps on. any way go get 'em Mr. Voight..
