Kid Rock, Sean Penn Cross Political Divide in New Clip

Try to watch it with an open mind. If you do, it is pretty funny. If not, it will only make you mad.

Dumb.

The video proposes that political differences are unimportant but that we all should unite behind the troops. Of course, political differences ARE unimportant if they're reactionary left (Sean Penn) vs. right (Kid Rock).

Love it and I'll tell you why....

if more of us had the statesmanship of Dr Paul, we would talk with people who held polar opposite positions in a civil way rather than name calling.

The comments on this post miss the entire point of the video by a mile.

All it is saying is that discourse with AND respect for other people, even if you don't respect their point of view, is what will win the day. That is what would allow for us to slip in information about The Fed, Military Complex, Welfare/Warfare, Foreign Policy etc.

Accept it or not, all of us want the same thing...freedom and peace. Most people just haven't been educated to see how we got to this point much less how to get out AND they buy into the two party polarizing propaganda.

This ad speaks to the majority of the people in this country...The Nascar lovers and the Tree Huggers. A call for civility in this country IS in order AND should be applauded by Ron Paul supporters as I am sure he would agree!

However, it would have been a better video if the Jamaican girl would have had a Ron Paul T-shirt on and mentioned how they both were wrong and it was actually she who had the biggest Di**!

I understand that, I didn't

I understand that, I didn't miss that 'message' they tried to put out at all. My biggest issue with it is the attitude that almost borders on nationalism "Let's get along just cause we're Americans", and not because we're human beings. That'd be the first step to having peaceful, meaningful conversation with ALl nations. The way the bit about the troops is placed plays up on that, "We're united against our enemies" mentality without addressing both the people we're harming abroad, and the troops whose lives we're scarring with those atrocities.

You know what I don't like

You know what I don't like about this? It proposes that everyone's ideas are equal, just different! This is not true! Some ideas are deserving and lead in the right direction and should be embraced, other ideas are destructive and should be discarded, they are not all equal!

People are created equal, but

People are created equal, but not ideas. Sadly most of the people in the comments on that video seem to think that you're an "aggressive, hateful being" if you oppose an idea that is awful. I echo the sentiment of one of the posters there, "Damned if you do, damned if you don't".

YUK

Self-important junk. What people must think of our country when they see this kind of stuff overseas....
Politics aside, that is an overdose in egoism. I think I need a shower...

Never go full retard

Kirk Lazarus: Everybody knows you never go full retard.
Tugg Speedman: What do you mean?
Kirk Lazarus: Check it out. Dustin Hoffman, 'Rain Man,' look retarded, act retarded, not retarded. Counted toothpicks, cheated cards. Autistic, sho'. Not retarded. You know Tom Hanks, 'Forrest Gump.' Slow, yes. Retarded, maybe. Braces on his legs. But he charmed the pants off Nixon and won a ping-pong competition. That ain't retarded. Peter Sellers, "Being There." Infantile, yes. Retarded, no. You went full retard, man. Never go full retard. You don't buy that? Ask Sean Penn, 2001, "I Am Sam." Remember? Went full retard, went home empty handed...

well said, very applicable

well said, very applicable here

Wow, that was really goofy

Especially the scene of them riding bicycles together with the corny music soundtrack after their fight lol! This is really SLICK propaganda...if the target audience is 5 years old.

Blah.....

I like some of Kid's music.....I like some of Penn's movies....if they both had any balls and truely loved this country the would get their head out of their A$$ and start pusing the fact that our two party system sucks and Ron Paul is the true Patriot...Other than that they are just politically stupid people.

hmm

100% bafoonery

Beep beep boop beep... I am a Paulbot... prepare for liberty and prosperity!

I guess it'd be funny if it

I guess it'd be funny if it wasn't fooling people into thinking they 'care about the troops'. If it was simply a harmless little video. It's not, people will look at these 'icons' for the Left and the Right, and think they can just continue to treat this like a 'game'.

Michael,

TAKE THIS OFF THE FRONT PAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I watched this like an idiot, thinking I was going to learn something or see a breakthrough, but this made me want to HURL!!!!!!!!!

ESPECIALLY THE PART ABOUT THE SOLDIERS DYING TO PROTECT OUR FREEDOMS!!!!!!!!!!!!

THEY DIED FOR NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So sick of brainwashing crapola!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They died for oil... they die

They died for oil... they die for empire expansion... they sure as hell did not die for US here and they didn't die to keep us safe.

Whenever someone puts a 'support our troops' thing up, it's so hard not to say something. I know they most likely have a son or daughter in the service and out of respect for that I keep quiet. However, I feel like they should know their child is/was a pawn and they should have been here living their life and making our country stronger.

I'm ex-military and the only way I would go back is if there was a Libertarian President and then I would be certain to make sure my enlistment didn't go past 4 years. I'll gladly lay my life on the line and fight for this country, but I'll be damned if I shoot one bullet at someone because of "terror". We terrorize them! We funded them! We are the bad guys and that makes me sick. Sorry to rant but I'm so sick of this Muslim/terrorist propaganda because it is killing us as much as it is killing them.

Wrong.... They died to

Wrong.... They died to protect the worlds reserve currency.... Trade in gold and soldiers die... Couldn't agree more this is really stupid...

Well, at least there was the

Well, at least there was the attractive Jamaican woman.

There is nothing attractive

There is nothing attractive to me about ignorance

You know what happens when you get two misguided individuals that don't know where to go from here and will continue to make poor decisions because they can't see a better way?

This video.

As i said on FB when I first

As i said on FB when I first watched this... this is a disgusting ad with terrible implications.

The one issue uniting left and right is "soldier worship"? really?

"Say what you want about any economic or political policies, but so long as you agree that we must worship the very symbol of statism and oppression, you're A-ok in my book!"

Also, I didn't like the

Also, I didn't like the Republican "gay-bashing". Ron Paul and the Liberty Movement don't gay bash.

The Santorum Wing of the Party is dying off.

I didn't hear any gay bashing...

but preserving traditional marriage from the anti-Christian bullies is left to the States to handle... and other States to respect.

The r3VOLution is NOT republiCAN.

I like the looks of this, but

I like the looks of this, but what has happened in two years? How far have they gotten with the Honduran government?

tasmlab's picture

I didn't know they mentioned death counts on the news

Who knew! Does soldiers dying have something to do with R and D partisan politics anyways?

And certainly no tears for dead Afghanis

I couldn't make it though it.

thought it was really awful.

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

It wasn't that bad

Within their limits they tried. I made it to the end anyways :)

Not funny.

Not clever. Not interesting. Not cool. Not stylish.
FCKING NAUSEATING!!!!!!!!

So... we have a FAKE-conservative Central Government Planner... and a FAKE-liberal Central Government Planner... come together under "freedom."

WHAT FREEDOM?!?!?!?!?!

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?!?!?!?!

WE ARE NOT FREE!!!!!

WE OWN NOTHING!!!!!!!

WE MANUFACTURE NOTHING!!!!!!!

WE KNOW NOTHING!!!!!!!!

WE HAVE NO FAMILY!!!!!!

WE HAVE NO HISTORY!!!!!!

WE HAVE NO CULTURE!!!!!!!

WE HAVE NO LANGUAGE!!!!!!!

WE HAVE NO BALLS!!!!!!!!

WE HAVE NO HONOR!!!!!

WE HAVE NO PRIDE!!!!!!!

WE HAVE NO SHAME!!!!!

WE HAVE NO CONSTITUTION!!!!!!!

WE HAVE NO BILL OF RIGHTS!!!!!!!

WE HAVE NO NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY!!!!!

Only UNCONSTITUTIONAL Central Government Planning. Red or blue, depending on the year.

An oppressor WILL TRICK IT'S TARGET into THINKING... THINKING they "have" something or "are" something... that they will lose WITHOUT THE TYRANNY!!! If we SEE OURSELVES FOR WHAT WE REALLY ARE... FCKING SLAVES... THEN WE WILL BEGIN TO RESTORE CONSTITUTIONAL LIBERTY. ONLY THEN!!!!

I'll say again and again and again... UNTIL WE REJECT BOTH THE RED AND THE BLUE SLAVE MASTERS... NOTHING will change.

Aaaaaand

we all noticed Kid Rock's "Paul" tattoo.. up until 60% of the clip i was waiting for them to realize that they really love Dr. Paul, and how both of their choices were wrong...

The Tat

is for his cousin. Not Ron Paul.
