If America was some unassuming little country that had no effect on the greater world, the way it's going down the tubes would probably go pretty much unnoticed. But what goes on in America effects THE WHOLE FREAKING WORLD. And yet we non-Americans don't get the chance to vote out fuckers like Bush. People in America see the political divide as liberal/conservative = democrat/republican. In fact, the Democrats are a consevative party, and the republicans are ultra-conservative. From any other vantage point in the world, this is easy to see. America's political landscpe is drifting dangerously close to a kind of capitalistic Facism.
And Michael Moore doesn't lie. Yes, he picks and chooses facts for his purpose, and places emphasis on those that support his arguments, and he states a lot of opinions. But he has teams of independent fact-checkers working around the clock to make sure he never misrepresents the facts. If he didn't, his ass would be sued so fast. It's the people who say he lies that are the liars, and this time he says he will take them to court if they persist on dragging his good name through the mud. I hope he does. Michael Moore is not objective, but guess what? There's no such thing as objectivity.
As I see things, liberalism = treating all people equally and seeing people as more important than money, conservatism = giving advantages to people with more money. A simplification? Yes. But it has a certain truth to it.
