The movies - Rainmaker - and - As Good As It Gets - might turn you into a liberal

http://www.motherjones.com/mixed-media/2014/01/hollywood-movies-change-political-views-more-liberal-study

According to a study recently published in Social Science Quarterly, Hollywood is making you more liberal. The study, titled "Moving Pictures? Experimental Evidence of Cinematic Influence on Political Attitudes," was coauthored by Todd Adkins and Jeremiah Castle of the University of Notre Dame. It found that viewers who watched a movie with a message on health care (either Francis Ford Coppola's fairly polemical The Rainmaker or James L. Brooks' more subtle As Good As It Gets) generally saw their support for the Affordable Care Act, or similar policies, increase.

Please do not watch those movies. We need more liberals like I need a hole in my head ;)

Fahrenheit 9/11 might turn you into a liberal too.

If anything it would cause people to become ultra-conservative...

Side: Rush was right!!!

You think Fahrenheit 9/11 made Bush look good?

Side: Rush was right!!!

I don't think a movie would have an effect if someone approves or does not approve of ObamaCare.

Side: Wait..., what? No!!!

Perhaps. But I am not going to take that chance. ;)
