Sammy Hagar and Shannon Doherty are Republicans?

Very interesting list.

R. Lee Ermey

I love him!!

Mail Call is one of my favorite shows. And him in Full Metal Jacket is classic. The best drill Sergeant / boot camp scene ever in the movies!!!!

"If one does not believe in the statement in the Declaration of Independence, that ALL are created by their Creator, one does not believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

While conservatism and the Declaration of Independence are not mutually exclusive, the Declaration of Independence is not about conservatism. Conservatism is about smaller government, lower taxes and self reliance.

Tom Selleck, Tony Danza and Patricia Heaton are all conservatives. Fred Thompson gets something like an 86% rating at the ACU. Bruce Willis is nominally conservative at any rate.

Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., reads scripture on one of the religion channels, so I assume he’s a conservative. On the other hand, he’s so old he doesn’t count. I don’t think he’s done any acting in the last 40 years. He must have made some good investments back when he was doing “77 Sunset Strip.”

Babylon 5, for a few episodes, IIRC.

Newsmeat is an interesting list. Of course some of those folks have been dead for decades so if it shows them giving $500 it would be much more today. Also 20 years ago conservative Democrats were not quite as extinct as they are today.

Looking over the list it looks like the GOP does a little better with the music industry than with film.

Late nights surfing non-cable, I've seen Michael Biehn (one of the best character actors in American film, IMO -- Aliens, Tombstone, Terminator, Abyss) on a religious channel. I'd bet dollars to donuts he's a conservative.

I was a little surprised that Paul Anka contributed mostly Democratic. He always seemed like a conservative kind of guy.

When you mentioned Paul Anka...that brought Wayne Newton to my mind...I think he’s a Republican...of course, he’s not Hollywood, he’s Vegas.

One of my favorite Websites

The Hollywood Patriots of WWII

http://www.wyolife.com/KerryFest/WWII%20Actors.htm

Now I’m sure that not all of these stars were Republicans, but, even the most liberal on this list was many times more conservative than most of todays Hollywood elite.

What is so fantastic is how many of them put their careers on hold until they did their duty to their country. This list should also include those wonderful entertainers who entertained the troops or toured the country raising money for war bonds sometimes passing up movie auditions and on at least one occasion (Carole Lombard) , losing their lives on tour.

“...seemed like a conservative kind of guy.”

I think the big problem is that the California cities of greater LA and SF are sooooo far Left some think they are conservative because they stand up to the most nutty extremism. Then there are the hardcore Leftists like Striesand who put in some real serious money. Charlie Daniels does not have Barbra’s dough but he is down on that list with $500 ... all for Demos.

The young Hollywood trendy set supports the Dems about ten to one over the GOP wouldn’t you say?

Being concerned for God's creatures, even being interested in preserving endangered species, but not at the expense of people. There's a big difference between funding animal shelters and throwing red paint-filled balloons at fur wearers.

Keifer Sutherland is from a family of big time socialists from Canada.

His grandfather was Tommy Doulglas, the founder of socialized medicine in Canada.

Mother is Shirley Doulglas, father is Donald Sutherland.

Patricia Heaton tops the list. Not only is she a cultural conservative, but she has given $1.5 million of her own money to buy 3D ultrasound machines for crisis pregnancy clinics to discourage women from having abortions. God bless her!

Rick Schroeder was in a movie with Holden when he was little.

Can't remember the title, but Ricky was lost in the out back and Holden took him under his wing until they got back to civilization.

Speaking of Wayne Newton, I know he had kind of a vendetta with Johnny Carson, who had insinuated on the air that Newton was gay. According to Newton, he actually went to Carson’s office and personally confronted him on the issue, and Carson finally backed off.
