Extremely late reply: the majority of Hollywood is quite liberal, so this isn't really shocking.
Vince Vaughn deciding to become buddies with Ron Paul is more of an anomaly (and a great one).

Isn't it great that non-citizen green card holders can donate to super-pacs to influence American elections.

That's politics the world over and likely the case since Cleisthenes.

I thought he was a US citizen through marriage but I could be wrong.

I don't really care about celebrities views on anything, just keep cranking out kick ass Bond movies.

I never did understand Hollywood's imperialistic connection to the Whitehouse nor the pablum it spews upon the unwashed masses.

He's been a US citizen since 2011. Be careful, your xenophobia is showing, might wanna pull down the white hood.

Strangely enough, I can't find anything on the web that says he is a US citizen. His wife became one in 2012, but the only thing I see is he has a green card:

Daniel Craig should have done his homework: the James Bond star and US Green Card holder who cannot vote in federal elections has donated $47,300 to Americans Socially United, a PAC that supports Bernie Sanders.

http://ohnotheydidnt.livejournal.com/97890192.html

As far as your interpretation of my comments as being somehow xenophobic and racist? Unless I am mistaken, Daniel Craig is white, and British - does that qualify for either xenophobia or racism? I guess you are also making the (racist) assumption that I'm white?

His foresight is debatable. Many people think they have good foresight. I ask again - what has he done?

Not much on the way of legislative accomplishments, which largely depend on the political leaning of congress, but his personal choices and convictions are admirable and his positions on issues (and voting) has a record of being correct. Isn't that what matters?

LoL.

I think the most hilarious thing to watch is going to be all the self loathing, white guilt left wingers try to justify to themselves and the nation why we need another "old white guy" in the White House. This all seems pretty darned near racist, and not "inclusive" to me. Where's the diversity, where's the multiculturalism that supposedly makes us all stronger? Don't let us down now left wingers!

Between commie Sanders and hair boy Trump, this is going to be one amazingly fun race to watch. This nation is going to get exactly what it deserves no matter who wins, a complete loser. Now, back to the GMO, fantasy sports, and idolizing grown men chasing a ball around a field. AMURICA!!

Expanding Medicare would cost $9.6 trillion alone, with another Obama-style infrastructure stimulus for supposedly shovel-ready jobs adding another trillion dollars. His tax hikes would only bring in $4 trillion, leaving a massive hole in the US budget. “If Sanders wants to realize his socialist dream, he’ll need much higher taxes to achieve it,” Indiviglio concludes.


The Wall Street Journal*priced out Sanders’ agenda and found that it would require “at least $18 trillion in new spending over a decade.

That may be a low estimate. Last month,*The Wall Street Journal*priced out Sanders’agenda and found that it would require “at least $18 trillion in new spending over a decade,” an amount that surpasses the current total national debt of the United States. Nationalizing the US health industry into Medicare will cost $15 trillion, according to Laura Meckler, and Sanders’ expansion of Social Security will cost another $1.2 trillion.



Free access to public universities and colleges will add $750 billion to federal spending – and that may not take into account the inflationary incentives that increasing subsidies will produce at these schools. Meckler only finds revenues of $6.5 trillion even by Sanders’ own reckoning of the effectiveness of his soak-the-rich tax hikes, leaving more than $1 trillion a year inadditional*deficit spending above the heightened levels of the Obama era.

Neither of these analyses addresses the economic costs of forcing employers to provide paid family leave, either.*Earlier this year, Fortune used the mandatory programs in California and New Jersey to conclude that employer costs would be negligible, but only if a national program followed the same employee-contribution model with compensation reduced to 55 percent-67 percent of normal wages. A*Heritage Foundation analysis from 2011*similarly showed that employers would find ways to reduce compensation to adjust for the additional cost, as well as reducing productivity.

That, combined with the massively higher taxes that “democratic Socialism” would require to keep from collapsing, would sink the American economy. That also is nothing new; European countries have struggled with this inherent reality of socialism for two decades, and Greece has fallen into outright default over it. This agenda is a Cold War relic, a fantasy long since discredited among all but the academics and their naïve protégés.

From The Fiscal Times.




18 trillion dollars.

I don't really listen to what Bernie has to say since he's unelectable just like Trump, but has he ever explained, specifically, how he'd pay for all of his ambitious plans?
