Melissa Joan Hart: I'm voting for Romney

Melissa Joan Hart has explained it all about why she's voting for Mitt Romney in this election.

The 36-year-old actress had a lengthy tweeting session on Monday night as she vouched for her candidate.

[F]or those asking, I'm voting #RomneyRyan," she posted. "Probably lost a few jobs in Hollywood with my political views. So sad the 'tolerant left' is anything but! #voteordontcomplain."

Letting that personal detail slip also left Hart open to a bombardment of responses. "Wow!! 2500 replies? Why do u guys care what I think? It's just the decision my research [sic] lead me to. And no, Im not racist or anti-anybody!," she wrote back. "Guess what? A person can care about the earth AND marriage equality AND want the economy back AND ... have a good healthcare system that works all at the same time &choose not to continue on the path of the last 4 years! #RomneyRyan2012."

Hart, who promised a follower that there are more Hollywood Republicans, but they're in "hiding [because] we lose jobs," added that she actually considers herself to be more of a conservative.

Thankfully, Hart did see some uplifting messages. "The amazing amount of love &kind messages were overwhelming today. Lets all get out and #vote ... for whichever candidate u prefer!"

    • queenbee about being in denial. She thinks she is suffering a backlash from Hollywood due to being Republican? There are and always have been plenty of Republicans in Hollywood–Eastwood and Heston and Reagan and the Arnold come to mind–ALL had prolific careers. Take a look in the mirror Melissa. Maybe any loss of roles are due to your addition of ROLLS–as in rolls of fat–you look like a greasy, rosy little porker in the photo here and Hollywood is notorious for having only a few roles for people who cannot manage their weight. YOu're welcome.

    Some people should do a little research, MJH has been around since the 90's thanks to TGIF. In addition, she has a show on ABC Family during the summer which will have a third season starting in May.

    Awesome Melissa. You were always one of my favorite stars. A woman who actually thinks for herself instead of being rammed around by Hollywood moguls. Wow, maybe you are not even afraid to say and act like you are Christian. That would be a double plus and what an example for our young women that need positive role models. Maybe you could run for office some day.

    You want a position. If Romney wins, you can bend over & get ready to take it in the rear. How's that for a position? I'm sure it is something you are very good at already. As far as sokman goes, oh yeah, he'd hit it if he had the chance, but that day would never happen.

      I agree. It seems all of these "celebrities" who feel they're being discriminated against by the entertainment industry because of their conservative beliefs happen to be...nobodies. This girl can't act her thin-lipped way out of a paper bag, the Clueless girl (another one who hasn't worked in a decade), Scott Baio (???), Jon Voight (???????????) – all has-beens or never-weres. The fact is that artistic people are open-minded people, and open-minded people are tolerant people, and republicans are not generally tolerant people. How you can be concerned about the environment and support a party that wants to rip apart the Earth, or be a woman who supports a party that's against financial, social and reproductive rights, or be a person of color who votes with people who vow to destroy Civil Rights legislation as we know it and refer to human beings – in a public debate – as "illegals"...completely floors me. So, the "I'm not a racist/I love the environment/I believe in equal pay and a woman's rights" patter just doesn't fly. THAT'S why people give you the cold shoulder, Joan...because your political affiliation paints you as an intolerant moron. OK?

    Conservatives are anti-black, anti-hispanic, anti-minority? That's a surprise to me, since I'm hispanic, a military man, and also a conservative. I avoid liking or disliking celebrities because of their political views. Do I dislike the performance of our current president, and am I going to vote for him? No. But I'm also not going to boycott Jay-Z because he believes in Obama.
    This statement has been repeated many times in this conversation, but the liberal left are the ones who ostracize a celebrity, or anyone, because of their believes. Here are some excerpts from just the last couple of hours alone:
    JGH: I can't believe I ever liked someone who likes MR.
    Matt: Wow, Loved you when you were on Nick but you just suck now with your beliefs.
    lisa: And screw you, you communist Anti-American. You and Melissa Joan Hart– an out-of-work, fat actress, who can only get work by attacking her fellow Americans.

    So much for tolerance...

      Actually, you're as correct as you are incorrect. We do ostracize more often but it's because we just can't stand abject stupidity, thievery or arrogance. It's sort of like hating someone based on what they say rather than how the appear.

    The conservative party always ask the questioin as to why we are skeptic when we as liberals take a dislike for their party and political views. Anti-gay, anti-black, anti-hispanics, anti-poor, anti-middle class, anti-minorities, anti-education, anti-union, ant-equal pay, anit-inclusive, etc. Do I have any thing else to say. Look at their convention. No minorities.

    • @Don & Vikki & Clete

      I tend to agree with all 3 of you. First off, I could give a crap what a celebrity says. Their opinion makes no difference to me. I make my own decisions, and do my own research. I'm a middle class person. The Republican party just does not speak to me. I thought I'd choke when Romney was asked what a middle class person made in income. He said $250,000! I don't know about you, but if I made that kind of money, I'd consider myself very well off. As a progressive, I have no ill will towards anyone. If Romney wins, then he wins. God help us, though. But if Obama wins, you Republicans will be just as hateful as you were the last 4 years, and don't tell me any different. An example, my boss is a raging republican. He is a rich guy. For 8 years, every day, he'd tell me what a piece of crap Clinton was. I never said anything. During the Bush years, I never once said anything against him, and I had plenty of ammunition. Since Obama, he started on him on day 1. It gets really old. How did your party get so nasty?
