Freedom to Fascism

I saw the new documentary America: Freedom to Fascism a couple days ago. A screener for it somehow ended up on Google Video, and someone in my friends list on MySpace posted a bulletin with a link to it, which I really appreciated.

Well, the video isn't up on the web anymore. It is actually getting a theatrical release, so I guess they want people to pay for it. I'll just tell you right now, it is worth every penny.

GO SEE THIS MOVIE. It'll scare the hair right off your head.

It is not a partisan rant like Fahrenheit 9/11. It is not a dark, involved, paranoid 9/11 Truth outing like Loose Change. It is completely and totally focused on the loss of liberty America has faced over the last 80-or-so years, and what, exactly, the Federal Reserve system is all about.

For instance: Freedom to Fascism claims there is not an actual law that requires citizens to pay INCOME taxes on their wages? As defined by the Supreme Court, wages represent an exchange, not an income. Income is from the sale of an item for profit, and is usually generated through corporate activity.

Aaron Russo, the director of the film, starts from there and paints a terrifying image of the coming struggle for American liberty in the face of an elite class that is determined to break our sovereignty and move toward a one-world government. Soon (2008, to be exact), you will be forced to carry a national ID card. Soon, all cash transactions will be traced. Soon, they will try to implant a microchip in your body. And it will all be done "for your protection." Sounds far-fetched, I know. But you'll be absolutely convinced by the end of this film.
"If the American people ever allow the banks to control the issuance of their currency, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

- Thomas Jefferson
Sound like what we're looking at today, doesn't it? Our Congress gave away its right to issue our currency in 1913, and it has been a slow descent into fascism since then.

So watch it. Look up show times, buy tickets, and watch it.

Update! (Aug. 31, 11:40 a.m.)
My sister Ellen, a lawyer and famed Mommy Blawger, offers her assessment of the income tax claim put out by this film. She writes ...
It depends on how you define the word "law". It would be correct (I assume; I didn't look it up) that there is not an actual *statue* that requires citizens to pay income taxes on their wages. But in the US we inherited the English Common Law system which means that "The Law" is not the same as the statute. It includes hundreds of years of jurisprudential custom and interpretation (i.e. case law) as well as regulations. See Wiki.
