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