Tom, I'm not sure you visit this forum, but I joined this forum today to post this directly to you. After sending this post, I will never visit this forum again. If you want to contact me directly, my name is Tim McCune and I live in Germantown, Maryland - I'm in the book.
I'm so disappointed in you over your Obama propaganda film I hardly know where to start. To put this administration in any positive light is a miscarriage of justice to those who are proud of this countries core beliefs and traditions. I can only believe that you have done this because of the socialist environment you are immersed in and your incredible isolation from the heartland of this country that is suffering tremendously.
You don't seem like a bad guy and I like many veterans have appreciated your "Band of Brothers" work and some other projects. However, you don't seem to realize that by supporting Obama, you're advocating the continued erosion of freedom, religious and otherwise, that is the cornerstone of this country. Like many other veterans, I put my life on the line for those freedoms, yet I see them being subverted by an Obama who wants to lessen those freedoms, so he can re-distribute wealth to those who had the same opportunity to gain wealth, but for whatever reason, didn't achieve it. That’s not how the capitalism that got you where you are and that you apparently despise, works.
Tom, apparently those who think like you now do didn't get the resounding message that was sent during the mid-term elections in 2010. The message that Obama and the Democrats are on the wrong course. That eroding freedom and the longstanding traditions in this country is counter to what this country is about.
Entertainment people like you, Springstein and others are extreme leftists as are the majority of the artist "community." As such, you really ought to stay in the area for which you're best known and for what your fans pay you for - entertainment, because, like your forebears, the Court Jesters of centuries ago, no one takes you seriously anyway when you mindlessly stay into politics.
Know this Tom; I am not going to organize a boycott of you or your work, although others might. But I am personally going to boycott you and your work until such time as you have made amends for what you've done. Hopefully, you’ll come to your senses.
