Boycott of the Acadamy Awards if Actors express Anti-American statements sign now

To the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences,

We the people of the United States are sick and tired of hearing actors and actresses step up on a platform to voice their opinions on the situation in Iraq. While freedom of speech is certainly one of the most coveted liberties in this country, too many actors are taking it upon themselves to use their celebrity and their wealth to influence others. Unfortunately, thier are people out there that will say to themselves, "Gee, Martin Sheen believes in no war. I should too" without formulating their own opinions.

These actors try to claim that blind faith in our leaders will only cause trouble. Well, blind faith in people who are nothing more than entertainers will get people killed.

The Academy Awards are to be a celebration and honoring of the best that the movie industry has to offer. Sadly, many actors will take it upon themselves to use this as a political forum. This is NOT the place for this, nor should any more time be given to these people.

Therefore, a BOYCOTT OF THE ACADEMY AWARDS SHOW and all sponsors that pay for commercial time is called upon unless the Academy forewarns these actors that their comments are not welcome in this forum. We do not wish to hear the opinionated comments of those that do not have any reasons to be spouting off, other than a political bashing of our leaders. Our troops are overseas right now, preparing for war, and the last thing they need are people that unfortunately have influence over others because of a skewed idea of what idols are in this country.

This BOYCOTT OF THE ACADEMY AWARDS and it's sponsors will hopefully signal that Americans as a whole do not wish, or need, to have the opinions of actors and actresses who use thier celebrity to get air time.
