    I don't usually pay much attention to Moore, but this caught my eye. What's your take on it?

    "He's a good and decent person (when he's not sending in drones to kill Pakistani civilians "

    This statement says it all!  The United States POTUS admits to being guilty of conspiring to commit murder!  Why run a campaign on Osamas death when it is not unusual, this president orders the deaths of individuals on almost a daily basis!  Just a normal daily activity.  What a delusional population that is unable to understand the actual atrocities being committed worldwide by the Federal government of the United States, voting for Obama can be categorized as aiding and abetting a known terrorist!  Voting for Romney will change nothing, the murders will continue, neither candidate is addressing the peoples concern for the rising tyranny being introduced within the nation, and based on the following article, the world!

    Pentagon OK with selling U.S. drones to 66 countries

    A senior Pentagon official said this week that as many as 66 countries would be eligible to buy U.S. drones under new Department of Defense guidelines, but Congress and the State Department, which have a final say, have not agreed to the exports, NBC News reported.

    Romney Vs Obama - Same Issues, Same Answers!

      They all seem amused at our naivety of thinking we do have a voice, while  we know painfully well that they do.

        The truly sad part of our existence is that many people do think there is a difference.  The people with actual power exist behind a veil of secrecy,  far from any public scrutiny.  I am optimistic though, I see many more people coming to the realization of the fact that politicians are merely puppets, salesman, the only choice the people have is which salesman will present the pitch.  All decisions are made far from our elected officials.  The actual decision makers exist outside of any elected office!

          I agree, however, I think they're beginning, slowly but surely, to run. That veil is lifting.

    I believe I'm going to be like Michale Moore and go with my optimistic side.  Despite all of the cynicism he expressed in his article (because of the laws the republican govenors put into place in order to block the vote),  I am still imagining that there will be a second term President Obama.   I can barely contain myself from becoming giddy with that thought.  After the republicans have done everything possible to block the vote, Obama wins!  What sweet justice...I mean what sweet victory that will be!!

      Blocking the vote is bad enough, but putting the breaks on any initiative Obama had during his first term is even worse

    Firstly I find Huffington Post as toxic as others find Brietbart. Secondly Micheal Moore has gained a lot of weight around the midsection through capitalistic means by having all the little progressive groupies of his movies pay for them at the theaters. In other words he lives off the capitalism he claims to hate. He has no virtue.
    In Cuba doctors walked out on the screening of his film applauding the Cuban medical system because they knew it was a lie. That's all anyone need to know to understand Mr.Moore.
    He is a one per center. Why does the left love him?

      Did you read the article? Moore says Obama didn't save Detroit workers - he saved the corporation. He said many workers in MI and OH are very pi$$ed at the POTUS.

        Yes...I think he is one who thinks Obama is not progressive enough.
        That still doesn't make him any less an ass.

    The left loves Michael Moore because he speaks out against the wrong values practiced by many big businesses preformed against the 99 percenters.   I wish I could work for free, but that is not a reality for most of us.  Therefore I won't deprive a man...ANY MAN for getting a good return on his money, as long as it is done honestly, with high standards and moral ethics.

    I'm not a big Michael Moore fan, but this is a great piece, and I agree we who support Obama better work like if we were ten points behind and the election was two weeks away because otherwise we don't have a chance.the voter suppression will be massive and the media propaganda will blanket the country because money is no object to the gop machine.

    Love this part:

    The majority of Americans (who do not call themselves "liberal") now support most of the liberal agenda -- they're for gay marriage, they're pro-choice, they're anti-war, they believe there's global warming, and they hate Wall Street for what it has done to them and their neighbors. The Republicans know this: that we, the majority, will have sex when we want and with whom we want, will read and watch whatever we want when we want, will use marijuana if we want and if we don't want to then we certainly don't want our friends who do to be throw into prison. We are sick and tired of being poisoned, by chemicals or propaganda, we think the Palestinians have been given a raw deal and we want our friggin' jobs back! The Christian Right (and their Wall Street funders) know this all too well -- America has turned, and there's no going back to not loving someone because of the color of their skin or expecting women to cede control of their bodies to a bunch of Neanderthals.

    The "Barbarians At The Gate" in this case are Obama and the communist hord that he drug into town with him from Chicago.  Painting a fear of big business fits right into the scheme they like to convince the American people that individual accomplishment and personal success works against the American people. Obama has said it over and over that he does not believe the free market works which means that he believes that our economy should be under the control of the government, a government with the power to give or take at any time.  A government focused on entitlement welfare using it to buy the dependency of the loyal subjects worshipping at its feet.  Obama's vision of America is akin to a dead body once the cancer has consumed all that is vital inside it and left the remainder for all to see.  He stirs the pot on every social issue and takes every opportunity to create class envy and hatred of those with any visible level of success.  If you can find a "uniter" in that, God bless you.  One might remember the film work done by Moore in his attacks on George Bush and how in awe the liberals were of Moore's superior intellect.  Funny, those same folks cannot even find the time to see a film like 2016 and give it some consideration.  In terms of intellect, there is far more displayed there than Moore could find in his entire gene pool.  If you are willing to vote Obama another term in office, you are more than willing to voluntarily give up your freedoms and liberties under the Constitution for when he gets through, there will not be a Constitution as you know it. Change the laws for any particular desire and see where it goes; ask yourself where it stops.  It does not stop until all that is America is gone and the man willing to do the job is sitting in the White House at this moment.  Vote for Obama or a concrete block...I'll take the block, at least it has substance. ~WB

    Micheal Moore is a rich man being hypocritical about rich people. I have absolutely no respect for him at all.

      No, Moore has what, $50 million? That's wealthy.

      Romney has what, $250 million? That's obscene.(liberal logic)

      Did you know out of the 10 richest congressmen, 7 are Democrats?

      He is doing to his fans what he claims Wall St. is doing to everyone else and they just love him. It's the Clinton effect. Smile at them when you lie.
