Clint Eastwood is a Hollywood legend. He's been a movie icon for decades, the star of the famed “Man With No Name” Spaghetti Westerns and Dirty Harry movies. The 86-year-old Oscar winner is also one of the highest-profile conservatives in the movie business. Or maybe he's one of the highest-profile libertarians but he's not sure which ideological descriptor fits for him anymore. Read full article

    Clints message has always been, don't abandon your principles and don't take any bs.

    I don't k ow how you can criticise that.

    It depends what your principles are.
    The trouble with a “kick ass” mentality is that it escalates and festers.
    At a country level, this could lead to a nuclear war if a state dictator such as our N.Korean looney loses the plot and decides on Armageddon.

    That is one of the greatest fears about Trump.

    I would like to see the original Esquire article.

    Esquire tells us that Eastwood does not agree with either candidate.
    Hilary is too PC and Trump says a lot of “dumb things”.

    He makes it very clear that's his dilemma.

    It's a “tough one”.

    Same as for every American.

    However unlikeable Hillary is I think the idea of someone as thin-skinned and revengeful as Trump as the Commander in Chief makes it a no-brainer for the majority. But there is a long way to go until the election and people have short memories.

    Brasso's back!

    The Brazil Nuts already had a trump, it's name was Lula, soon to be prisoner xxx Lula.

    As I have said many times: the ONLY election that counts is the one the citizens vote in.

    Given the circumstances for the working man and woman since 2008 I for one would be surprised if The Donald doesn't scrape in.

    It's better than a movie! A horror movie.

    Clint Eastwood has made a lot of interesting films and often has thoughtful things to say about them. He was, by all accounts, a competent mayor of Carmel ( pop 3 842 ). On the subject of Federal politics though, he isn't any more articulate, or insightful, than he was four years ago.

    Improvisation has never been his strongest suit.

    The public are bucking the trend,

    if this is so,
    Trump will, it seems, will win.

    Unless of course, Hillary wins.

    Famous (allegedly) clairvoyant (allegedly) Tony Morris has predicted that Hilary will win.

    Mind you he has also predicted a great surge in world peace in 2016/17 and a move towards serious gun control in 2016.

    That's Hilary stuffed then.

    @ 20 darragh
    “That's Hilary stuffed then.”

    You can have my go with pleasure! :o)

    Anybody seen Monica? Looks like she has had a head transplant, so much better looking than Hilarious. However the back end of a bus is better looking than her.

    “SOME (?) dumb things” is an understatement!
