Actors should not, repeat not be allowed to speak on politics.....unless your name is Gov. Arnold

Ok, so I was reading a back issue of The Rolling Stone, and it was an issue printed during the election/iraq war/micheal "i'm a huge loser" moore phase. And the vast majority of artists were crying out against the war and bush and put on a tour against him and such. now, everyone has a right to an opinion, but actors and musicians should seriously consider shutting the hell up sometime. Just because you are the flavor of the week and blah blah blah does not mean the world needs to hear what you have to say. Yes, some actor/musicians are intelligent and have credible things to say. But, personally when i buy a cd i buy it because i like the music, and am not paying them to voice their opinions. This whole thing tends to skew reality. While they claim that they are informing the public and encouraging them to vote and voice THEIR OWN opinion in one commericial they are ranting about the tyranny of Bush in another using their influence to convince the masses. Convince them that the reason they should vote for bush is because bruce i'm so damn cool springsteen thinks it's a good idea, or Sean stuffy combs says i need to vote Kerry. Yes, I do in fact realize that I'm not american and have no say in the matter and it shouldn't theorhetically affect me. But seeming as it is a free country, I hate the fact that these people who live absolutely unrealistic lives who know nothing of the most part of blue collar anywhere, whose lives will be affected the least by privatized health care and gun control. If i could, i would have voted for Bush, and I personally support the war in Iraq and think that it is retarded that Canada did not assist America. Saddam Hussien was a terrorist, no, they didn't find any weapons of mass destruction, yes that sucks. Yes, good men died fighting in Iraq. But Saddam needed to be taken out of power. These stars talk of bush's tryanical ways, but usually these complaints are made from houses with more bathrooms then most of our homes have square footage. People who ride the crest of the wave of public obsession wield a dangerous tool that would best serve unused............................oh yeah, I hate Brittany Spears too.
