The United States celebrated Independence Day on July 4, the day the country became independent 245 years ago. Matthew McConaughey did just that by posting a video on social media addressing his fellow countrymen.

“I congratulate America on being able to celebrate our independence and the moment of our nation’s founding. But let’s be honest, we as a country are just kids or teens, compared to nations that have been around for so long. And just as children and teens deal with growth spurts, so are we. That’s just a fact and that’s only good.” We have to keep learning, growing, falling and coming back in. “We need to keep hope as we build, because that’s what we do,” Matthew said.
He continues, “We need to make sure that we, as Americans, respect each other’s privacy but come together and collectively put our shoulders at the wheel. So take the time this weekend to reflect and think about how we can move forward and how we can become a better and stronger nation as a nation.” Congratulations again America, let’s dance!”.
The actor flirts with the idea of participating in the fight for governor of “which he belongs” in Texas, where he would face current Republican Governor Greg Abbott if elected as the Democratic candidate. It’s far from that, however, and if it’s up to the number of Matthew’s followers, it won’t.
Please, no more actors, reality stars or other celebrities in the White House. Just stick with acting, one follower said, something you’re good at. Another says: “Why do celebrities need to get involved in politics? The country won’t benefit from that, we saw that with the former president.”
