Bruce Springsteen and the Dixie Chicks
It is nothing new...celebrities using their considerable influence to voice their opinions. In 2003, The Dixie Chicks said they were ashamed that President Bush was from Texas, and people around the nation formed a boycot. For years the ladies of this country band had to fight angry threats and low record sales. Now Bruce Springsteen is being attacked for his anti-war lyrics. Let me ask you...do you think celebrities have a right to voice these opinions, as gaurenteed to them in the Consitution, or would you have them keep to themselves and leave the system of government and the structure of society unchecked?
