Just because you loved them in a movie or listen to their music doesn’t mean you should listen to their opinion on politics. Unfortunately, too many Americans think that because an actress was great in a movie, or an actor did a phenomenal job, that their thoughts on something is more valuable than the Average Joe’s.
Another unfortunate fact is that Americans tend to believe that a politician’s life is more important than theirs, or that politicians are smarter than they are. Both lines of thinking are inherently wrong and incompatible with the idea that “all men are created equal.”
If a politician can be protected with guns then so can a doctor, a businessman, stay at home mom, or pizza deliveryman.
