Liberal Actor, John Cusack, on Filibuster "For God's Sake, Where Are Democrats?"

The Blaze: Actor John Cusack describes himself as a progressive, but he has been a critic of the federal government’s drone program regardless of who has been is in office. Frankly, he has also be a pretty harsh critic of President Barack Obama as well.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and other GOP senators on Wednesday conducted an old-school filibuster on the Senate floor to block John Brennan’s nomination and bring attention to the potential for drone strikes on U.S. soil. As the hours went by, Cusack was curious to know: “where are Democrats?”

"Where are the Democrats?"

"Where are the Democrats?"

They're too busy begging Obama to answer their covetous prayers. Liberty is a Democrats enemy. They've made it clear that injustice is what they want, so injustice is what they're going to get. I have no idea why John Cusack would even have to ask. He spends most of his time listening to Democrats, and I have to believe that his eyes, ears, and mouth are still working.

Where are the Democrats... Open your eyes John.

If Wyden took some time, other Dems could have too.

Warren, Franken, Brown, Saunders...where were they? Even if they planner on voting for Brennan, they should have gotten up there and taken opportunity to cast doubts on the entire drone issue.

Cusack shows that a 'Hollywood thinker' is not an oxymoron.

There is hope. Thanks for posting.

Too bad more aren't joining in.

Someone is standing up? Kind

Someone is standing up? Kind of like that actor who stood up with Paul and then teamed up with Beck? Dont emotionally invest yourself in actors.

Very simple

The Democratic Party has become the party of the big jobs program. The people that vote for them do so because they have a job or a grant, or a contract, or social security or some other thing that they get from a cash transfer government program. They will ignore everything as long as they get their cash. Obama knows this and that is why he cannot ever stop sending the cash for anything. If the veil breaks he loses everything.

I follow him on twitter & facebook. He's a lot more Libertarian

than he realizes. Lots of his posts are very liberty minded and he criticizes Obama often.

Most Americans are more libertarian than anything else

Most Americans are more libertarian than anything else. However, most can not imagine themselves not being on Team Democrat or Team Republican. I commend Cusack for calling BS on Obama and the Dems, but I'll bet he'll still consider himself a member of Team Democrat.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Of course.

He probably doesn't even know what a libertarian is.

I would imagine he does know.

I would imagine he does know. But the Team Dem or Team Rep thing probably keeps him from giving it much thought.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

My fav tweet from Mr.Cusack

dems ? Do U have any thoughts on Obama’s transition from a progressive academic humanist 2 a regressive corporate warlord?

Indirect proof

that there is no difference between the two parties.

This fantasy needs to come to an end.

Thank you for this information--

Cusack is a unique person, a thinker.

I am not 'into' Hollywood at all, but I think this man is different from most.

I am getting tired of the words 'liberal' and 'conservative'--

but I know that was in the original article--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Personally

I ignore all actors.

Klaus Kinski said it best, 'Actors are overrated'

Yeah! I hope more come

Yeah! I hope more come around. I remember when Bush was president so many people hated the wars and then Obama came and everyone stopped caring.

End The Fed!

Not everyone.

John Cusack, for example. These people have a lot of sway in the average American mind, whether you like it or not. People like him that speak for civil liberties has a huge impact on our society, and that is a really good thing. Just look at his recent AMA on Reddit.

And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes, I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

Cusack hung out with the good doctor, aka Hunter S Thompson. He knows what's up.

Mr. Cusak is questioning "authority"...unlike the rest of Hollywierd...other than Mr. Willis, apparently.
