Age of Obama: Matt Damon Says Political System 'Rigged'

Matt Damon is one of Hollywood’s more outspoken celebrities, and he’s not afraid of using his film projects to further his progressive agenda.

Just watch – if you can – his 2010 bomb “Green Zone” which rewrites recent history to fit the liberal narrative about the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

Yet four years after the election of Barack Obama, a politician initially embraced by Damon and his peers, the actor has soured on Hope, Change and the American political process in toto.

“It’s easier now more than ever in my life to feel the fix is in, the game is rigged and no matter how hard you work to change things, it just doesn’t matter….”

“We’re at a point where politicians don’t really get any benefit from engaging with long-term issues. Instead, it’s all about the next election cycle. Those guys in the House don’t do anything now but run for office. So unless they can find some little thing that zips them up a couple of points in the polls, they’re not interested.
