Julianne Moore is an actress. This means she is privileged and worth a lot of money. Her guilt for doing almost nothing of redeeming value is showing. She has to justify her existence when so many people around her, I should say, no one around her, pays bloated prices to watch her movies.
Like so many politicians, Moore knows almost nothing about business, how economies work, and how limited government should be. Who does she think pays to make the movies she stars in? Can you imagine what would happen if you or I went to a Julianne Moore movie and asked for free tickets because the movie theater owners should take care of us? Why should movie theater owners give their money away. But it’s OK for the government to take money from some individuals to give it give it to other individuals because it’s the government’s job “to take care of us.”
Moore is playing Sarah Palin in “Game Change,” HBO’s upcoming movie about the 2008 presidential race. Moore wants the government help people so she doesn’t have to. She’s pro-abortion activist (that’s really helping people) and donated to John Kerry’s presidential campaign. She told told ABC News that the role has exposed her to some harsh political realities.
“In terms of the research I did on the way campaigns are conducted, you know, so much is about how do you get on the air, how to you get the most media attention, how do you make the most noise. When, in fact, what we’re all looking for is leadership,” she said. “We don’t want noise. We want people who are going to take care of us.”
“Moore also said she’s ‘really disgusted’ and ‘kind of ashamed’ by the country’s divisive political climate. ‘I mean, there’s got to be an end to it,’ she said. ‘I think everyone is really sick of it.'”
I’m sick of it too. Make Congress a part-time institution. Get Congress out of our pocket books. Let businesses do what they do best . . . make money. Who will benefit? The people Julianne Moore wants the government to take care of.
