In the recent days, Michael Moore urged Matt Damon, the 41-year-old actor, to run for president of the United States on the weekend, the idea has gained traction on both political blogs and Hollywood websites. In “The Adjustment Bureau,” Matt Damon was a Democratic candidate for Senate. Now, Michael Moore wants him to take it to the next level – in the real world. Damon has not expressed a desire to run for office, but he has become known for his political activism. During the 2008 presidential campaign, he endorsed Obama and called Sarah Palins story a bad Disney movie. Her story is really a dreadful B-Movie. During an online discussion on Sunday, Moore said, I think that hes been very courageous and not caring about who he offends by coming out and saying the things that need to be said here … If you wanna win, the Republicans have certainly shown the way that when you run someone who is popular you win sometimes even when you run an actor, you win. I only throw his name out there because Id like us to start thinking that way . Yes, the US needs change, a new independent president. And Matt Damon can be a good candidate. “Im so disgusted, man. Its criminal that like, you know, so little is asked of people who are getting so much; I mean, I dont mind paying more, Damon said. He was in Washington with his mother, a teacher and an activist, to promote the Save Our Schools march. Id rather pay for taxes than cut like Reading is Fundamental or Head Start or some of these programs that are really helping kids, he said. Mr. Damon also criticized the Tea Party for being willing to drive the American economy off a cliff”. His long friendship and collaborative works with the late great Howard Zinn, demonstrates that Damon can speak truth to power. As you know, Matt Damon and his mother, lived next door to Howard Zinn. And Howard Zinn: You Cant Be Neutral on a Moving Train, narrated by Matt Damon .
The US should get rid of the two party system. And a good and famous independent presidential candidate, like Matt Damon, who is one of the best at the present time, can do the job of the historical change. Some American comments about Matt Damon candidacy are interesting: “He cannot run for office, because he speaks openly about the disenfranchised, defends the importance of education, wants shared burden for military action, and is willing to change his mind about which politicians he supports based on what they have (or have not) done with the power granted them … Some worship Reagan, while decrying actors getting involved in politics … Dont dismiss a Matt Damon candidacy out of hand. The Repugs ran three successful bad actor candidates: Ronald Reagan, George Murphy and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Matt Damon can actually act. Uh oh, Is that a deal breaker? … Ronald Reagan was a very very bad actor, a B rated movie actor … I trust Matt Damon more than any politician and I dont even know him that well. He is funny though … With almost 29,000 votes in the Matt for President poll on TMZ, 58% say yes, 42% say no … If it came down to a choice between the corporate shill in the White House, an idiot republican, or Matt, Id vote Matt. … When the stupid Sarah Palin wants to be President, why shouldn’t Matt run for president ? Compared to Sarah Palin, Matt is god ! … In the end I voted for Obama because of pretty speeches. At least Damon has the ability to act like hes really mad and about to kick some ass. Sounds like a good reason to vote for him … If I see Matts name on the ballot, I promise to choose it. Im in. Im totally in. Lets do it. Go Matt Damon. Run the turn coat off … With that assessment, then Ronald Reagan should never have gone into politics, especially since he was a B rated movie actor. I can also state he was a D rated governor and a F rated President … Ha ha ha! You nailed that one, pretty good. Id vote for Damon over Obama in a heartbeat … If Matt Damon takes Michael Moores advice and runs for president in 2012, would you vote for him? A Poll says: 72% Yes and 28% No … Id vote for a guy like Damon without experience but with principles in a heartbeat over Zero or any of the Repukes. A guy like Damon can hire the right people”
After 250 years, the US needs an independent president, or at least a non-Republican or non-Democrat president, for solving the current serious problems. The first independent US president can be some one like Matt Damon. Why not? Compared to Bush, Obama or Reagan, he is god ! He is really smarter and better than them. It’s important that many Americans have realized that the US badly needs an independent president, or at least a non-Republican and non-Democrat President . 2012 can be the best time for this serious change.
