I voted for obama over romney. I am glad that he was not successful with the gun regulation he was trying to pass but over all I don't think that vote was a mistake. I don't mind supporting trump on the issues he takes that I like and I don't mind being against him on the issues he takes that I don't like. I am never sure that a devided nation is bad. It is the utimate checks and balances. Now with the republicans haveing a majority every where, I am betting that in two years there will be a major correction in the voting to get back to that devided state.
As far as actors takeing positions on things other then acting. I don't mind. If they are taking a position on something I agree with, my respect for that actor goes up a bit. If he supports something I don't like, then my respect goes down. One thing for sure, I have a little respect for those who don't hide but put themselve out for what they believe. Not so much respect that it makes me change the things I believe in.
