I currently have nothing good to say about Michael Moore, and
I would be viewed as the last person to choose to see this film.

However, there is so much divisiveness in this country, and post after post rail against this Us vs. Them mentality that TPTB use to keep us squabbling amongst ourselves, that I feel the need to view this film.

If we as a nation are to overcome this barrier between those of different political ideologies, then all sides must be willing to attempt to understand others views.

What spin could the MSM put on a massive “right wing” turnout for a Michael Moore film?

I’m sure they’ll come up with something, but what next,
liberals joining the NRA en masse?

Any other takers to send a message of unity?

If someone I know rents it once it goes to dvd I might borrow it, other then that Mr. Moore will not see a dime of my money.

i'm not a republican. conservative. right wing.. any of that.. i'm also not a democrat left wing..

and i wouldn't see His film if you payed me, there is no point he will not go and cover the truth, the hidden truth.. so he exposes the corrupts banks... good finally someone saying something out loud.. but will he dive deeper into the fed? will he start talking about the Rothchilds and Kissinger, will he bring up all the elite blood line of bankers, and all the presidents ties to them?

no sadly he wont... he will make a fluff film.. that is all

Truthfully, this is exactly how I have felt in the past.
I'm looking to show some sign of unity, rather than continuing with this right vs. left mentality that is being used to keep us all bickering over relatively small issues.

One of the sides eventually has to make the first move, no?

I won't. Just because of his Larry King interview. I was planning to see it. But not after that.

Not after he blamed capitalism, and then openly admitted that it wasn't capitalism that caused the bailouts, and that it was socialism.

Yet he still blames capitalism.

He has an in-ability to see beyond his own agenda.

I think his movies are great, hes doing more then me and you.

So if he is getting any of this info out in the open all the better.

Go moore Go

I'd rather watch his movies then transformers 3 or Saw 45.3


P.S. No one will listen to him or even back his movies if he tried a stunt like talking smack about Goliath, He knows better, so he goes and smack talks the paper trail that will eventually lead serious questioners to the FED.

It has nothing to do with left vs. right.

It has everything to do with the fact that I don't like the man and I personally don't want him putting my money into his pocket. I will watch it if he isn't able to gain from my viewing.

I, personally, am a Constitutionalist. If it's not in The Constitution, it's not law. Period.

However, the citizens of this country are at an impasse, and the only way to break this is to open lines of communication.
Not filtered through the media, but real dialogue.

You, I, and Michael Moore already agree that the banking system is corrupt.

i trulyy believe that we will find that all politicalbeliefs have more in common than the media lets on.

If you love Obama go watch it. If not, DO NOT. Trust me, you will be pissed by the ending. I wanted to yell when some people started clapping in the end.

I do not love Obama, and I strongly dislike his policies, or lack of policies.
The media, however, loves Michael Moore, and the meesage will not be lost on our leaders when they begin to see people of all political beliefs coming together.

This is what scares them the most, people seeing through the deceptions.

I really appreciate your willingness to "open up to the other side", so to speak.

I like some of what Moore does and dislike others. I have no plan to see his film at this time because I think I would just get more upset about the economy and what we've done to ourselves in the last 50 years. But I may rent it later.

A review of Capitalism: A Love Story



Moore's ire is not aimed at Capitalism in general, but what American Capitalism has become since the 1970's and 80's. Moore speaks lovingly, albeit indirectly, about the brand of Capitalism that existed in the US in the 1940's, 50's and 1960's, using examples from his own family and his father's tenure in the auto industry replete with good health insurance and a good pension that cannot be taken away.


I am left and right already, so I'm not sure what action I could take that would send a message of unity... But I'll think about it and see what I can come up with. I think the idea is a great one! Congratulations for doing SOMETHING while many just sit on their "side" and grumble about the other.

You should also pledge to fact check things in this movie, or at least read another book or article that does. His last movie spawned entire industries of books and movies there was so much to debunk.

If I wanted to watch propaganda I would tune into MSNBC for free. I can't believe they call his films documentaries.
