Strange! I thought that most people knew that Ol’ Willie was a liberal. Now he comes out for Beto in Texas, and conservatives are ANGRY? Huh??

Who’d they think he’d support?

I think it's odd that people didn't have an inkling he may not be a conservative. But I think it's odder when fans of someone -- anyone -- get mad when they discover the person they are a fan of has different opinions than they do. There was a thread here recently about the actor Jon Voight (I think I spelled that right) suddenly announcing he was a Republican. My reaction was, "So?" Then someone pointed out that he's leaned right for a long time.

There's not enough time in the world to be butthurt about the politics of a singer or actor.

I didn't know he was a liberal. I did know he attempted to cheat on his taxes and got caught and settled for much less than he owed. So , I guess I should have known.

It amazes me that anyone could NOT know that Willie is a Liberal.
He has given Concerts for several Democrats in Texas ..... include Pink Tennis Shoes with Tampon Earrings - Wendy Davis. Wendy was the last great - Turn Texas BLUE candidate.

Truth is -- Willie probably only cares about Marijuana issues, but those are basically Leftist issues and they use them as a "Get out the Vote" for the Libertarians who really only care about DRUGS.

Beto is an opportunist ..... if it takes "Legalize Marijuana", that works for him.
IF it takes "gun legislation", that works for him. If it takes - FREE-FREE-FREE, that works for him.

Anyone who knows Willie (and I've met him many times) - is well aware of where he stands & why.

He's a pot head with no real love for the IRS or gov.

Understandable.

The one where you work your ass off for scraps while the Repubs try to give your boss the whole hog plus half of yours. And you vote for the guy that’s trying to scru you over.

Half of this country is right beside you so don’t feel alone.

Cheating on taxes is quite the right wing trait, so that clue wouldn’t have helped you.

No...the Democrats go directly for stealing tax dollars for private purposes.

Willie, Merle, and a host of others were/are pretty liberal. Don't confuse country music with conservative artists.

The music, however, is REALLY GOOD.
