Reviewing Aaron Russo's New Film!

(that's Aaron Russo and I at the Arcada Theatre on Saturday March 18th 2006 after previewing this new movie!)

Aaron Russo- what can I say about the MAN. He is genuinely an American patriot and hero. His new movie America: From Freedom To Fascism
is much much better than I had anticipated, in fact I'll go out on a limb to say it is better than Michael Moore's documentary "Farenheit 911".

I took my wife and children to see the movie. On our way in we were approached by a reporter from the We The People organization, who sponsored the showing of the film. She asked me what I expected to see from Aaron Russo's new film. My comment was posted on the We The People blog.
(my comments are the audioblog at 4:25pm under the Chicago event)

The movie starts out talking about the Federal Reserve. Then Aaron eases his way into talking about the IRS. He interviews people like Irwin Schiff, Joe Bannister, Larken Rose and others of the tax honesty movement. Dr. Ron Paul even has a cameo in the film! My favorite part of the movie was when Aaron grills a former IRS Commissioner about the legitimacy of the Income Tax and asks him on numerous occasions about where the law is that forces the American people to pay taxes on their income.

Aaron also discusses the Real ID Act and the Patriot Act. The part of the movie that scared me was when he discusses that the government may require newborn babies to have micro-chips implanted in them after birth. You could sense fear and anxiousity in the theatre over that issue. I know that I will never allow the government to do anythiog like that to my children-I'll go to jail before I'll succumb to the will of the government.

I think this film is definately a must-see when it comes out in the theatre. If it doesn't come to Springfield-once it comes out on DVD I will try to have it shown at UIS. Maybe it was a sign that he didn't win the Libertarian Party Presidential nomination. This movie will do more to open the eyes, ears and hearts of Americans than the LP has in their 30+ years of existence. I can't thank Aaron enough for making this movie. Government has gotten too big for it's britches. It's time for fellow Americans to take our country back! Hold your elected officals feet to the fire. Question every vote they cast that violates your freedoms and liberties. Let's make this country a better place for our children and grand-children! It is up to us to "FIGHT THE POWER!"

This is a bunch of GARBAGE!

Your CWLP bill may increase AGAIN!

Politicans and fee increases seem to be an epidemic here in Illinois.

It looks like an alderman here in Springfield, IL wants to make responsible residents pay for garbage service for those who don't by adding another fee to our CWLP bill! I pay 150 dollars a year for garbage removal and I make about 17K a year. Now I know that garbage removal isn't a high priority for most people but there are other ways to resolve this situation without forcing others to pay for this service.

When, I lived in Effingham,IL my landlords included garbage removal in our rent. There could be an agreement between the tenet and the landlord to have this service included in their contract. The waste removal companies could set up a fund in which anyone can contribute to- to ensure that those who can not afford to have their garbage remove. They can get that service for free or at a reduced price. I would rather donate 20 dollars to this fund than be forcedto pay five dollars a month. Besides, CWLP just increased rates so they can build a new power plant. I'd rather not give anyone anymore money than I have to.

Alderman Matt Mahoney is wrong about this. Send him an e-mail to show your disapproval. BTW, Alderman Kunz is against his proposal. I sent an e-mail to Alderman Kunz for standing up for the taxpayers of the city. This fee increase is unnecessary!
