Actress Mila Kunis: 'I Love Barack Obama,' Adds Young Republicans Are 'Ill-Informed'

Actress Mila Kunis granted an interview (and cover photo) to Stylist magazine and proclaimed “I love Barack Obama” and that young Republicans are “ill-informed” in Middle America and can’t tell you why they oppose Obama. She lectured others to get educated and explain how you voted, and “don’t tell me it’s because of religion either because that whole thing is knocked completely out the window.”

In the same interview, when they asked if she would write a movie script, Kunis explained “I can barely write an e-mail. I can’t form a sentence to save my life.”

Everyone is waiting to know what Mila Kunis believes on the debt limit:

STYLIST: How do you feel about the US debt crisis?

KUNIS: I love Barack Obama. I voted for him and I will forever be proud of my vote, so I can’t say anything bad against him – other than I think America is in a very temperamental state, and the decision that was made and the compromises made mean, in my opinion, that people are going to pay for a very long time. There is no revenue that’s going to come from these compromises. None. We are no longer going to be the leading power, at all; if China takes their money away for the States we are done. Done. I know that he [Obama] tried. I know because you keep reading these reports of him trying to compromise with the Tea Party and the Republican Party and trying to come up with a 50-50 agreement. I don’t think it was one. I feel the Democratic Party compromised everything and the Republican Party compromised pretty much nothing.

STYLIST: It’s pretty terrifying how much power the Tea Party seems to have in the US – we’re watching Sarah Palin with open mouths.

KUNIS: Honestly, I love politics. I do. And maybe they know something that I don’t know, and that’s the only thing I can hope for. But unless you show me some revenue that’s going to be made, we’re about to become a third-world country. OK I’m being dramatic, but we sure as hell are losing a lot of power. And when you lose financial power and the dollar drops, the power is gone.

So to put two and two together, Kunis is proud of her vote for Obama, and under Obama, the country is in dramatic decline. And yet Kunis thinks the rest of the country isn't connecting dots:

STYLIST: Does it frustrate you how many people are politically unaware, particularly in our age group?

KUNIS: Yes, because you are given such an amazing opportunity with so much information. Why is no one taking advantage of it? You don't have to watch Fox News or CNN or MSNBC; you don't have to be part of a political party, you could just read. Why is nobody reading? I feel like, in our generation, people don't read.

STYLIST: It’s true...

KUNIS: They don't read books, they don't read the paper, they don't read the news. So obviously you are incredibly ill-informed to the point where they will go do these tests in Middle America, And they'll ask, 'OK, what party are you?' And they'll say, 'Republican'. 'Why?' And they can't even tell you. They have no idea what the Republican Party stands for. Why did I vote for Obama? I can tell you why I voted for him, what I agreed and disagreed with him on, for hours. It's crazy to me that people don't educate themselves about the world considering so many of them have children who are going to suffer because of it.

Whoever you vote for, don't do it just because. And don't tell me it's because of religion either because that whole thing is knocked completely out the window. So you better just educate yourself.

Kunis also says she's very proud of providing the voice of Meg on "Family Guy" and loves it when people yell "Shut up, Meg!" on the street.  Perhaps "Meg" should keep quiet until she does more reading on what Obama's doing to the economy.
