Russell Crowe Praises Obama as 'The Future': 14 Other Celebrities Who Support the President (GALLERY)

"Obama is the light"

Another star is jumping on the Barack Obama bandwagon.

With just over two weeks until Election Day, many celebrities are throwing their Hollywood weight behind their candidate through official advertisements, fundraising events, personal endorsements, and now, Twitter.

"Villagers, I don't endorse politicians. Not my thing. However, Obama is the light & the future," Russell Crowe tweeted. "Keep going towards the light. Put America first."

Though he encouraged others to support the POTUS on Nov. 6, the Australian actor won't be much of a help to Obama at the polls — his foreigner status prohibits him from voting or even contributing to campaigns.

Nevertheless, Crowe — who reportedly split from wife of nine years, Danielle Spencer, earlier this month — made no secret of why he would chose Obama on the ballot. "Complex time for the world," he tweeted. "America needs to continue the Global awareness that Obama has set. A healthy America means a healthy planet."

Despite detractors calling him an "idiot" and "typical Hollywood clown" in the Twitterverse, Crowe stuck to his guns. "I'm going to leave all the abusive tweets up on my time line because I think it tells its' own story," Crowe later wrote. "I'm 48 years old, a tax payer and a union member. I don't care if you don't agree with my opinion, I'm still going to have my opinion."

Crowe's presidential talk comes as a bit of a surprise, given the Oscar winner's previously stated stance on Hollywood stars broadcasting their political persuasions. "I come from a culture where, in a public forum, you don't discuss sex, religion or politics," Crowe told the Houston Chronicle back in 2003. "I don't think being a celebrity gives you any right whatsoever to air your political views."

    Mrs.Hillary Clinton-The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the USA, I have read in the Internet,in the Google News Website that South Korea is also interested in the THAAD System and requested it from the United States.In case you give priority to Turkey in terms of the deployment of THAAD System,I am sure it will also make the Southern Korea Nation very happy because the people from Southern Korea will never forget about the great support and sacrifice made by Turkish Soldiers during the Battle of Kunuri(November/1950).In 1950,while South Korea was fighting against People's Republic of China it was the resistance of troops which avoided the encirclament of United Nation forces and collapse of the front line.Turkish brigade was in charge of defending side and rear forces and achieved this task allowing the three days required for the withdrawal of the allied forces.The Turkish brigade itself,even costed a lot,was able to break the siege and therefore saved to be defeated.Overall losses of Turkish brigade in this battle were 767 commissioned or non-commissioned officers and private soldiers.(218 killed in action,455 wounded,and 94 missing). Please never forget the sacrifice that Turkish Soldiers had presented in favor of you.We kindly ask from the United States to meet our demands(including the Patriot System which is so said to be under maintenance).Considering all the sacrifice presented for your interest,we,Turkish people are looking forward to and kindly asking from you to give particular importance to the demands of Turkey in this issue and transfer them into practice. Yours Sincerely Ebru Dicle-Physics Engineer

    Mrs.Hillary Clinton-The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the USA, I read the following news in Vatan(daily newspaper)dated 28.11.2012:''The Patriot missiles to be positioned at the borderline between Turkey and Syria will be commanded by Admiral James Stavridis,Supreme Alied Commander Europe''.The grandparents of Admiral Stavridis are among those Rums(Greeks) ,who were born in Turkey and then immigrated to the US.Turkey is one of the most powerful members of NATO and it is also in coordination with the US.It has a very large qualified army. Our Great Leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and his brothers in arms fought with Rums(Greeks)tooth and nail in Turkish War of Independence.Our soldiers sacrificed their lives to draw the borders of our Country. Our Great Leader Mustafa Kemal Atatürk stated that; ''Turkish Nation loves its army and considers it as the guardian of the country.''-1922 ''There is no duty more important and more honorable than defense of one's country.''-1922 ''It is easier to get the inside track instead of struggling outside.''-1922 Our commanders have a creative power and a vast knowledge.Therefore,Turkish public and I think that it is just and better if the Patriot System that is to be positioned at the Turkish border with Syria is commanded jointly by Turkish Generals and another General of the United States armed Forces. Mrs.Hillary Clinton,we,as the Turkish public,will be very pleased,if you take this issue into consideration. Yours Sincerely Ebru Dicle-Physics Engineer

    I don't support Romney but as Hell don't support Obama. He's been the worst president we've ever had. Yes Bush was a thug and gave the bitch to Obama but Obama has done nothing. The media lies to you just look outside you think jobs are better? The jobs have not gotten better. There was a little surge in April but that was it. It is all lies and the whole thing is falling apart.

    They are saying Obama is God and that is blasphemy especially since he is at least an atheist and at worst a covert Muslim. The blacks support him only because he's black. I know this because I've been in debates with some blacks who claim they are republican and yet they support Obama. Yes it is because He is black. Everything has been turned on its head and reverse discrimination is the norm with regards to whites. I am not racist and love people of all colors and am not trying to instigate any race conflicts but just stating the obvious facts of the matter. Don't support Obama because He is black, don't support him because of his policies either because they are crazy, so in other words don't support Obama.

    What fucking planet are people on anymore? I don't understand Hollywood but the dead beats who want something for nothing I understand. They are willing to sacrifice any shred of dignity and freedom they have left for a free meal while selling the souls of their children's children for about the next 30+ years. Our Government are damned criminals and the media completely ignores it. We are living in something worse than the twilight zone and I just can't even comprehend this shit anymore. Like WOE this stuff blows my mind. I say these even though I know what is going on but it never ceases to amaze me!

    Oh yeah, he's the "light and the future". We just don't know what light and what future he's talking about. God willing, his "future" will be spend in Hawaii where he and Michelle will go to lick their wounds after their resounding defeat next month. I hope to God Russell does some research before he opens his mouth again.

First resident to repeat the Holy Quran & tell us the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth. First resident to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they “volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences. Then he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion. First resident to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states ( Mexico vs Arizona ). How is this hope and change working out for you?
