Celebrities are really getting into politics as of late. The most recent potential actor-turned-politician (although many feel the two are one and the same) is martial arts master Steven Seagal.

Taking advice from Arnold? Seagal, 61, says that "he is considering a shot at the state's highest office and has had a talk about the bid with the self-proclaimed toughest sheriff in America." ABC News writes further: "Seagal teamed up with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio for the show that was shot in Arizona and airs on cable TV's Reelz Channel. The martial arts expert is a member of Arpaio's posse, made up of 3,000 unpaid civilians. He also has been deputized with sheriff's offices in New Mexico, Texas and Louisiana and says he wants to increase border security."

What do you think? Does Seagal have what it takes to be governor, or should he stick to playing one in a made-for-tv action film?

    If he will stand for the same things our founding fathers stood for and make that work, then all of the very best of success to him and all who believe likewise.

    I answered no because my home state has enough problems as it is. Then I remembered that Jan Brewer is still in charge, so things can't get THAT much worse.

    Well, in all fairness, the Democrat alternative to Ms. Brewer was far worse. Hence, I voted Libertarian.

    Segal is a Republican?

    "He also has been deputized with sheriff's offices in New Mexico,"

    At least he has attempted to help rid our nation of criminal foreign citizen invaders who come to leech from the tax payers. He has volunteered his time and energy to help America and it's citizens.

    "He also has been deputized with sheriff's offices in New Mexico, Texas and Louisiana and says he wants to increase border security."

    American citizens want our borders secure and our social safety nets in tact for American citizens in need.

    He's owned several successful businesses in both America and Japan which means he knows how to create jobs and a budget.

    He's an animal lover and activist, and has been active in the Free Tibet movement, which should get him bipartisan support.

    I'm not familiar with the other candidates but I surely wouldn't listen to their WORDS, it's their actions that matter.

    Semi-decent actor, but his stories of his past are so far fetched and out of touch and his bizarre delusions of his inner-self should tell you to vote NO on this one. If it's true that other-worldly aliens are among us, he has to be one.

    o.O

    Did I miss something? Did we give 13 year old boys the right to vote?

    The man can't act, can't write, and can't direct but someone wants him to run an entire state? Apparently some people think that looking tough, being in a few bad movies, and knowing akido are qualifications for leadership.

    Why anyone is confused about the incompetency and stupidity of government today completely boggles my mind.

    It is, apparently. Examples of sub-par actors-turned politicians include, The Governator, Jesse Ventura, and President Reagan.
  • Raithere Maurice... 2014/01/09 22:16:18
    Raithere
    Reagan had some leadership roles and if I recall, over a decade in politics before running for governor. But otherwise, yes. I'm not opposed to actors becoming leaders per-se but one would think you'd need some sort of related experience before actually having a chance at an elected office.

    It's kind of like hiring Segal to be a railroad engineer because he was once in a movie about a train.

    Harry Reid is from Nevada not Arizona... Maybe he could tell Reid to keep his nose out of Arizona though...

    I read a few condescending comments concerning this guy's motivation. If you disagree with something he may support, say so, don't use character assassination in place of stating exactly your objection to him is.

    It's difficult to base a political choice on what you may think of an actor's performance.

    I will repeat what abundincrazy said "If he supports America's Constitution and our laws, he's infinitely better than the DC regime."

    I would really hate to see him take the law in his own hands like some of his movies... the movies are good but you cannot do that in real life..... maybe he will crack down on some things better... one can only wait and see...

    The watch of not wanting our state to be a laughing stock. We have already played that one in re-electing McCain. And it seems all of those that think it is a good idea for Arizona do not live here. How about he be your governor in Washington? It is not as though he can screw your state up much more.
