Why Should Celebrities Be Told To Keep Out Of The Democratic Process


There are as always many Hollywood stars on the campaign trail for the respective candidates they support. It is not rocket science that they wield tremendous influence through their mega followings. However, it is the call by others that they should keep out of politics that is strange. Why should celebrities keep out? They are citizens after all and like all citizens are entitled to vote and freely canvass for whoever they feel is going to do a good job for them, their families and communities. Furthermore, it is good for democracy that through their participation they galvanize people to start to take an active part in the democratic process.

Their celebrity status enhances exposure and discussion. Quite frankly anything to overcome the apathy evident from the numbers that vote is surely a good thing for democracy.
