    everyone should have the right to voice their opinion, it's only at the point where they become more vocal about the side then the politicians themselves that they should shut the hell up.

    Bruce-Willis is a good bloke who tells it like it is he´s not said anything that's not true neither have anyone else on your list hence why their not being sued they are having a dip for the working man and what we consider to be the right thing at least not all entertainers are sell outs.

    Well they should at least learn American history before they speak. It is a free country we boycott the liberals even if their shows are good.

    No money for traitors. Mel Gibson rocks Just do not buy their products. This is America child.

    Sly Stallone should shut up, but that's not a matter of what he says - his voice is just irritating as all hell.

    The only ones on your list that I have ever heard anything about is Mel Gibson, who is apparently a drunken nut, so he doesnt count and Elizabeth Hasselbeck, which it is her JOB to talk about political issues on the view.

    Oh yeah and Ben Stein, but that dude is uber smart, ill listen to him talk any day
