Today's New York Daily News carries the article "Willis no die-hard for the GOP." In it, actor Bruce Willis wants to set the record straight. "I'm always being accused of being a Hollywood Republican," Willis is quoted as saying, " — but I'm not!"According to the story, Willis is particularly interested in foster care, certainly a worthy concern. But he doesn't think free individuals can effectively address the matter: "This is not something for the private sector to solve. This is a problem for the federal government."He also wants to see a realignment of government priorities. "If they could build three fewer bombs every month and give the money to foster care, that would be great," he says.When most of us think of "bombs," we think of nuclear ones. But three a month? According to a recent Los Angeles Times piece, . . . "the last nuclear weapon rolled off the assembly line in the early 1990s. . . "Let's see. Bruce Willis thinks the Federal government should solve problems best left to voluntary action. He also has no idea of what the U.S. is doing in terms of national defense and grossly overstates our making of weapons.Yep, he's certainly not a Hollywood Republican. Indeed, on at least these issues, he appears to be a standard-issue Hollywood liberal.
