Other than countries with compulsory voting (I think all countries should have this) voter turnout is so low - the in situ government needs to worry when the "slackers" start to moan and grumble.

Wish they would here!

Compulsory voting is unconstitutional. I would, however, revert amendments allowing everyone to vote. A voter should be a landlord, or at least a taxpayer with enough understanding of foreign policy and economics.

People on welfare shouldn't be able to vote. They will vote for more welfare, higher spending, etc. They'd rather take from the rich, who earned everything they had, than go out a try to do some work.

Compulsory voting is unconstitutional.

Really? This topic is addressed in the US Constitution?

Confusing, but it sounds like you think some people who know about issues or are property owners are somehow barred from voting in the US. If true, this would be unfair and should be avoided via amending the Constitution. Is that what you are saying?

People on welfare shouldn't be able to vote.

You are just kidding, right? This is like a Borat routine where you say patently absurd things to get comical reactions. Right?

FFS ....... Are you a character who somehow magically escaped from the pages of an Ayn Rand novel?

How's he going to make money off of this? Moore is a businessman, not an activist

I respect Michael Moore because he is not afraid to say what he thinks. It is difficult to do this in an environment as the one in the USA.

Nice to see he's for the good guys but that was expected anyway.

I agree its much harder to say what you want in the US then in lets say China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, and many others... NOT

Another statement from anti American thinking and not intelligent thinking.

Mr Moore has an opinion and it is very one sided and some people like his stuff. I read Dean Koontz only so that means everyone should believe his stories are true??

Like all books or movies its just a story some are true to a point others are just someones ideas moore seems to fall into the idea area...

ExPrinceska: I respect Michael Moore because he is not afraid to say what he thinks. It is difficult to do this in an environment as the one in the USA.

Yeah, I hear they're closing down the internet during the presidential election.

Moore believes there is no terrorist threat (p. 95 of "Dude") and that Nixon was the last liberal president (p. 193). In Stupid White Men, he said that Florida was stolen from Gore because felons were barred from voting. In "Bowling" he altered history, misled his viewers and edited the footage and audio to reverse the meaning. He puts statements in all different order. He's not even from Flint. Great Oscar speech by the way. He claims they weren't saying "Booooo". Right, they were saying "booooooobs" cuz he's got 'em. In "un-Fahrenheit 9-11" he uses a Bush speech from 2001 and makes it seem to be occurring in 2003 and 2004. The list goes on and on.

Moore's positive point: brilliant propagandist - creates his false impressions indirectly. Always has the out of: "I never said that."

Who else do you respect? Hitler, Hussein, Li'l Kim, Castro?

"Slacker Uprising"? Must be a documentary about Obama riding the Chicago political machine to power.

Princess, you've got to be kidding. Moore sure ain't the only person in America afraid to say what he thinks!

Sicko and Fahrenheit 9/11 are "documentaries"? I thought they were sick attempts at comedy.

Whitehawk - Good one.

I didn't see a damn thing funny about Fahrenheit 9/11.

Too bad it was non-fiction. < :-)

Proabably giving it away because he knows that people are tired of his proseletysing and won't pay any more.

America needs a lot more Mike Moores. Your media is so concentrated in the hands of so few people and so pro-business that anyone presenting an alternative view is like gold. You need people to challenge the status quo and get debates started. Or do you want the next 100 years to be like the last 8?

I pretty much invented the slacker thing.

But I aint gonna protest.

Mike is down with the cause.

Right....Because the right wing controls the media...

I think Moore has a tendency to sensationalize and bend the facts to their breaking point to get his message across. That said, I'm glad he's around to counterbalance the apathetic masses who can't be bothered questioning whether things are really as they should be in this world.
