Shannen Doherty Outspoken Republican Actress

Shannen Doherty, a die-hard Conservative Republican and she isn’t afraid to talk about it.  Perhaps one of THE most outspoken actresses in Hollywood about her Republican beliefs.  And did we mention that she’s also beautiful?  Today we are adding Shannen Doherty to our list of Republican Babes!

Shannen has gone much deeper than most Republican celebrities in describing her beliefs and has obviously put a lot of thought into what it means to be a Hollywood Republican.  During an interview she had this to say, “I do consider myself a conservative. With that being said, I will not vote for a Republican if I do not actually believe in them. My biggest thing is to evoke change and to stand for something, whatever that something may be. As an example, 9/11 affected me, as it affected everybody in this country and most people around the world. It was horrific and scary, but it also elicited feelings of pride, camaraderie and patriotism. You saw a country pull together and support each other. It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve bared witness to, while also being a horrific event with how many people were murdered on that day.

My political mind comes into play being that I’m confused as to why we don’t have some form of a curriculum in our schools for teaching about that day. I don’t think it’s a day that should ever be forgotten. We certainly didn’t forget about Pearl Harbor and we teach about Pearl Harbor. I don’t see why 9/11 is any different, and it’s something I am going to be fighting for. In life, you have to get passionate and stand behind something and fight for it. It takes one person to evoke change, to start a movement to make the world a better place. Education is first and foremost, which is again, why I believe that 9/11 is something that should be taught about in school.”

Of being a Republican in Hollywood Shannen had this to say, “I realize that the majority of people in the entertainment business happen to be Democrats. I have no problem with that. And they should have no problem with the fact that I’m a Republican.”

She’s also paid homage to the God of Republican Party politics, Ronald Reagan saying, “I’m a conservative. I was an avid supporter of Ronald Reagan; I thought he was fabulous.”  A hot Hollywood Republican actress who digs President Ronald Reagan… and isn’t afraid to publicly speak about it?  We just might be in love.  In 1992, Doherty even appeared at the Republican National Convention and led the Pledge of Allegiance.

Some of you may remember Shannen from her role as Jenny Wilder in Little House on the Prairie during the 1980s.  More recently she has starred on the hit shows Beverly Hills 90210 and Charmed along with a long list of movies and television shows.

In the 2012 Presidential Election she publicly endorsed Republican candidate Mitt Romney.

Shannen is also an advocate for same sex marriage and had this to say about it, Two men, two women should be able to get married. It’s not about your sex, it’s about love and commitment. No state has the right to tell someone, ‘No, this is not legal in the eyes of the state.’ That is the most ridiculous statement in the world when you then go and preach that this is a free country.

But don’t worry guys; she had this to say about her own sex life, “We’re [Republicans] so damn conservative all day that when you finally get us in the bedroom, we’re absolute animals.”  That definitely clears things up!
