2. Yes, but to "win," they have to cheat.

3. America is not a liberal country. I don't even think a simple majority are liberal. The same goes

conservatives. A lot of Americans don't really understand or care much about politics.

6. I do wish he had said more about his next movie

But I think the title pretty much gives it away! And I agree, no one is willing to take on and expose the worst abuses in this country like Michael Moore - his movie (like Fahrenheit 9/11) will be "must see!"

5. Conservative snowflakes got their underwear in a wad over this interview.

I have to say...

7. I'm not nearly as optimistic as Mr. Moore (and I am a fan of his work).

The reality of the world today speaks for itself.

8. I wish he would release his film until closer to the midterms.

It could help to GOTV!

9. He did say that in his interview

That his film will be coming out before the midterms, good strategy on his part, but unfortunately we are the ones who will go see it, not the deplorables, as if they could be influenced anyway. But it might reach a few, so kudos to him for the effort, he really is a national treasure!

10. I think he said the release date is Sept 28th

when he was on Bill Maher's show. Since so much happens in a single week with the fucking moron, 6 weeks before the midterms could include three different crisis situations to distract us from GOTV. I just think Oct 15th would be a better choice.

11. Well, it will probably be released different places after that - happened with "Fahrenheit 9/11."

I ended up seeing at the closest theater where it was playing at the time - in a city about 20 minutes south of me. (And every single seat was filled!) It finally made it to my neck-of-the-woods a few weeks later, not at the regular theater, but at a "dinner and a movie" place downtown. A friend of mine went to see it there and I warned her that it wasn't a "dinner movie," but that was the only place it was playing at the time. So I'm guessing it'll take awhile to make its way around the country...

12. I hope it is really powerful so the audience is really effected

by it and they make voting a priority on Nov 6th.

13. I definitely think the country is ready for this

And I hope it gets wide release. "Fahrenheit 9/11" definitely tapped into something back then - like I said, the theater was full, I sat next to an older couple whose son had to sit in the row behind them. And the lady sitting next to me - who I had obviously never seen before - immediately started telling me exactly what she thought of Bush*! LOL. I gave her a couple of website suggestions - including DU! And if feelings were running strongly back then, it's nothing compared to right now!
