Yep - he's not really a Republican - just someone they exploited for what they thought would be a gain....kinda backfired on them. I'm thinking I wouldn't be surprised if, in the solitude of the voting booth, he votes more along the lines of what he really believes.

Please have the Libertarian Party's presidential candidate, Gary Johnson, on your show! He's the only candidate that talks about ending the wars, ending the failed war on drugs, marriage equality, and balancing the budget! Thanks!

And to Forrest D. Poston, Libertarians don't think people are perfect. We realize we are all imperfect and wonder why imperfect people in government get to tell the rest of us how to live our lives and spend our money!

We should not let our fear of what some people may do with their Freedom keep us from denying it to everyone.

Sounds Like Uncle Clint used to be a Republican but they all spend like a "drunken sailor". Bush Out Sourced the Daddy War Bucks to the lowest bidder in China to fight two wrong wars....
Uncle Clint want the Government to stay our of our lives....Hello, Bush and the Patriot Act is more than a small invasion of privacy, nobody knows but HIPPA is just the same, back door into you medical records by Law Enforcement.
Uncle Clint doesn't care about Gay Marriages, for someone else, that's their thing; "keep the Government out of our lives."
Clint wants Fiscal Responsibility, do the math...
ON ALL POINT CLINT EASTWOOD AGREES WITH OBAMA
OBAMA THE REAL FISCAL CONSERVATIVE
IF BUSH AND THE GOPeeing DIDN'T BUST THE ECONOMY THERE WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ANY BAIL OUT!

Sorry, but there are logical inconsistencies in the positions resulting from the most basic flaw in Libertariansim. Libertarianism is based on the concept that people should be allowed to lead their lives without interference and that they will then do the right thing.

This ignores the reality that few people are actually live on the basis of enlightened self-interest (called rational anarchy in "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, the Robert Heinlein book sometimes credited as the basis for Libertarianism). Even the best people are prone to letting greed, fear and other flaws influence their actions. That's what makes government necessary as well as problematic.

Consider the example given, that the sexual orientation shouldn't be an issue, that people should simply be allowed to live their lives. Fine, except that many people are unwilling to let things work that way. Too many people want to impose their views on others, by force if necessary. It hasn't been long since race and gender affected access to basic rights, and we really haven't resolved that problem. Such rights are also frequently denied on the basis of gender orientation. That's why the government has to interfere.

It's all well and good to say that people should be free of government interference, but since too many people never learned to work and play well with others, interference becomes necessary. Limiting that interference to the necessary level is important, but cutting it below that level is not in our enlightened self-interest. (And reading "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" actually explains why Libertarianism is a fine individual philosophy but absurd and doomed as an applied social philosophy.)

I really like Ellen. She is funny, smart, and beautiful! If only there were more celebrities like her. I met her once and she initiated conversation, now that's down to earth.

Mr. Eastwood should be supporting Gov. Gary Johnson, the Libertarian, for president, not Mitt Romney. Gov. Johnson believes in absolute respect for Human Rights.

Thank you for bridging what seemed to be a big gap by having Clint Eastwood (animal lover and supporter of gay marriage) on your show. You're integrity and open mind and heart makes you successful in life, but more importantly in love and friendship!
