Matthew McConaughey said on Tuesday that he would consider trying his hand at a career in politics by running for Governor of Texas.

The Texas native sat down with Hugh Hewitt on "The Hugh Hewitt Show" for an interview about "Greenlights," his best-selling book.

"I don’t know. I mean, that wouldn’t be up to me. It would be up to the people more than it would me," McConaughey told Hewitt. "I would say this: Look, politics seems to be a broken business to me right now. And when politics redefines its purpose, I could be a hell of a lot more interested."

McConaughey talked about his goals and ideas concerning American politics, saying, "I want to get behind personal values to rebind our social contracts with each other as Americans, as people again."

The actor also discussed the recent presidential election and former Vice President Joe Biden's win over President Donald Trump.

"Coming out of the election right now, we’ve got to stabilize," McConaughey said. "This country’s got to stabilize first before we start to say, 'OK, here’s how we’re marching out of this together forward.'"

Sounds like he has it down. A whole lot of talking where he basically didn’t say anything.

I can't imagine him actually being a serious contender

First off, Biden didnt win the election.
If he does prevail, it will be because he got away with stealing, just as he has been doing for decades.
There is no coming together here with the liberal adjenda if we wish to keep our freedom.

Just what we need, another Hollywood Left wing nut in politics.

Besides that, if his appearance is any indication, he has gone queer as hell.

MM has been a waste of skin since he accepted the role in Dallas Buyers Club.


My ideal as a conservative:

That each person may reap as he/she has sown.

Another one that thinks just because they speak in euphemisms (rebind our social contracts with each other), that they are really the one to fix things, when they haven't got a clue about what is going on. Sometimes wonder if they could tell you in which direction the sun comes up.

But didn't we recently elect a reality TV personality and tout him as the savior of the nation? The bar has been set pretty low. If you can log on to Twitter and say stupid stuff, you're qualified to run for public office; at any level.
On another front, I just saw Joe Biden on TV. The guy is so pale, he looks like he's been dusted with flour. He should see about borrowing some of Trump's spray tan. GD

Personally I’ve never cared much for the idiot. I will say he did a good job in True Detective but that was because of the other cast members. All his other work has been hoakey.

1.) Read an article not long ago, in which said actor was calling out the hypocrisy of friends of his who, in public, seemingly disavowed God but with whom he reports having prayed over dinner with the same persons. Doesn’t prove he’s a conservative, but does speak to some values and some spine for speaking out like that.

2.) As the framers intended, we want persons throwing their hat in the ring coming from regular America, not the self-serving invented political class. Granted, in this case the entertainment industry, so hard to read real merit there, but who knows.

3.) Some of his acting i’ve found interesting, while more of it was flat and uninspiring. He hucks Lincolns on tv with nary a word, just “coolness”, whereas at least Reagan was a prolific pitchman become conservative orator following a less successful movie career. Hard to draw much, but for certain Reagan having bloomed into a leader and conservative icon.


Seen a few things, but it’s the 24Hr Campfire Classifieds that’ll make me break out in a cold damned sweat.
