Let's face it folks, a lot of people are emotionally invested in defending their beliefs. It really is much like religion-How many people do you know who are able to open their minds to new or contradictory ideas? You end up rattling their foundations, and most people (not all, thankfully) will despise those who say they are wrong and have been mistaken in their beliefs.

This is even more intense when facts can be proven, such as in the Moore film, and several lawyers have poured over this to make sure of it.

So what is left? Knee-jerk reaction. Hatred not based on anything but that someone is not WITH them, therefore must be against them.

Moore is entitled to his opinions, and they are scattered through the film. But far more important are the indisputable facts. That's what is really sticking in the craw of those who are unable to open their minds to what has been happening right under their noses.
How many people do you know who can say "I was wrong in believing in this Administration"? From the interviews of those people who are taking the chance to having their eyes opened by going to see this looks like some CAN.

But beware those who can't or won't. They will fight tooth and nail against you.
