Movie veteran Robert Redford never contemplated leaving America if George W Bush was reelected in November, because he believes in standing up and not shying away from his political beliefs. The actor - a staunch Democrat supporter - was reported to have vowed he would move to Ireland if Republican Bush beat Senator John Kerry to win a second term in the White House. But Redford contends, "It wasn't true... I love Ireland, I have family heritage in Ireland, but I'm an American. I love it here and I'm not leaving just because of some barking dog on the TV. I'm not going to do that. We are who we are and we're not going to shy away from something we need to stand up for."
