You are a true American hero. I love you and wish everyone understood you. I am 78 years young and you (and Dave Chappelle) are the only one(s) I trust any more, aside from my family. Keep on asking too many questions. ❤️❤️❤️

Michael, thank you for being such an inspiration….I’m 75 and have seen so many changes in our government and thus, America. It has been a depressing time, so I am very grateful for your calm and wise insight. Roevember will be an exciting time….take care and I look forward to reading more of your thoughts.

We have something in common!

I was kicked out of CCD classes by a sour old Nun for asking too many questions!

I learned a few things I didn’t know about you, thank you for the information!

Have more of your books to read! Hope they are on audio!

I am proud to support you!

My Trusted Truth Teller!

The blue tidal wave is coming! It grows day by day!

I look forward to the next 31 days!

❤️🌻❤️

Wow, what a resume. Your only problem is you aren’t female. Why I say this is because I knew as soon as the Supreme Court said Roe was dead that the Republican Party has just destroyed it’s self. If you know anything about women (the majority of the population) you would have known that we women would not put up with this restriction on our rights. No way! Recall what women went through to get he vote. Notice that almost all of the poll takers & commentators are male. So while a lot of smart women were moaning, getting depressed, etc. I was excited & smiling. Believe in women. This advice comes from an 85 year old woman who has never been pregnant. Pat Sax

Your photo says it all.

Honest, unshaven, raw, candid, genuine, and earnest.

You do such a solid job of presenting the facts. Now we need to do OUR job: think, discuss, bring others along with us and vote!

Thank you Michael. I've known about you for years and love the way you "stick up" for us - women, and all the regular folks. I don't have your ancestry in America, but my grandparents came from the Ukraine, Belarus, Ireland and Poland. I don't know anything about their ancestry, but I know how hard they worked here. Oh the stories my Mom told us!

The really cool thing in your "bio" is that my Dad served in WWII in the Pacific and survived the battle of Pelleliu with your Dad!!! He also fought at Okinawa as well! I surely don't know how they made it out after reading about it and seeing the movie The Pacific! He never talked about it - ever.

I've been reading and listening to your online materials for quite a while and just decided to finally become a paid subscriber! I am an activist at heart, but have health issues that prevent me from being in all the wonderful protests the past few years! I'm with them in Spirit and thank you again for all you do for our cause!

I loved the answer you received at the end of 9th grade in Catholic School, "We (the Catholic Church) are an institution of answers, not questions.” Did you return the following year?

Keep doing what you are doing, I am one of your many fans.

Mike, I'm a sociologist. I often think you (and a couple of others, e.g. Robert Reich, Noam Chomsky) are the real sociologists. No one else called 2000 and 2016 as accurately as you did. That's what is really going on in the world. Thank you for calling it what it is! May you be right this time as well!

Mike, I laughed so hard at your story of a teacher accusing you of asking too many questions. I too went to Catholic school for all of elementary and high school. Most of my report cards have “not working to capacity” checked in the conduct section. At least twice a nun called my Mom and told her that I asked too many questions. My Mom told me that she told the nun “but that’s what I thought school was for!” The nun was not pleased.

I completed my mail in ballot yesterday, and it will go back in the mail tomorrow! One of my adult children (daughter) is on top of it; my son feels disillusioned and disenfranchised from politics altogether. No matter how many gently persuasive dialogues I have had with him, he remains cynical and unmoved to cast a vote for ANY politician. I'm hoping as you are that enough young people stand up and speak out with their votes in this and the 2024 election.

I am descended from William and Mary Brewster, leaders of that group of Separatists who became known as the Pilgrims. I have an ancestor who fought in the Revolutionary War. My dad was in WWII, my husband in Vietnam, my son in Afghanistan. At 73, I too am doing all I can to fight for our democracy to survive and thrive! Thank you for your powerful words and encouragement! We'll keep on asking questions and demanding accountability to keep our country free!

Thank you Michael!! My mom and I cast our absentee ballots last week. We spent the day yesterday filling out postcards for the Postcards to Swing States campaign—encouraging our fellow Michiganders to get out and vote. Keep up the fight, Sir!!

Michael Moore's accomplishments prove that a college degree is not essential although the Democrats think everyone needs one. So we were "promised" the American Dream or Happiness. This is the issue. We live in a consumerist society. Money is our real god. Most of th3e political issues could be solved by no EC; compulsory electronic voting; five weeks campaigning MAX; and no private funding. But then the kid who deliver pizza would not get tips if the campaign offices didn't exist. It is always $$.

YES!! Thank you, Michael.

What an unbelievably beautiful essay. So full of the piss and vinegar that make up who you are, Michael. Here's who I am: someone with GAD who decided she'd rather challenge that diagnosis and get out there as opposed to someone who sits and reads books behind a closed door. Oh, yes, I truly enjoy reading books in my living room, but that's not where life happens. It happens going door to door for Bernie, or, in the old days, for Obama, or just for getting out the vote, and reminding people about how just one person can be the tipping point. Horton Hears a Who does that, and also Yurtle the Turtle. I'm sure I don't have to remind you of that story. A burp from a turtle named Mac toppled the big Yurtle, who rulled all that he could see. People see themselves as one in 350 million. But you just don't know which one of us is going to burp. And there's the essay Beyond Hope, by Derrick Jensen, that says, even without any hope, even if hope died long ago, it does not absolve you of putting out your effort to change things. Thank you for putting out your effort, Michael.
