It starts out kinda slow, I

It starts out kinda slow, I had ahard time keeping people hooked until the good parts, which I think start about %35 into the film. If people are able to sit through the beginning they all end up agreeing with the premise of the info.

That's my experience

FREEDOM TO FASCISM RULES!

THANK YOU AARON RUSSO. YOU HELPED SPARK A REVOLUTION!!!!

On the Mark but we should start with the FED...

I understand that it was the income tax that that Arron was focusing on and the other issues about the FED and RFID came out of it, but the important thing to understand is that it all begins with the FED and all Central Banks.

When you understand that the Federal income tax just covers the interest that the FED is charging us for it's service to Print Money out of NOTHING, logic will tell you that if the FED was Abolished that the Federal Income tax, which is unconstitutional as is the FED, would no longer be needed.

Given that state of our economy right now, more people will be open to this TRUTH.

Thanks

Showed it last night to a bunch of friends from many different walks of life and political background and I believe it was a success. People will at least be thinking for a while. :-)

Content was great BUT...

The presentation was as emotional as a Micheal Moore or PBS documentary. Maudlin music. Old ladies being tazered. Pessimistic and fear-mongering. Not that that in itself is deceitfull, but the emotional appeal, especially mood-music, makes me feel as though I'm being manipulated by a some Hollywood advertiser.

was that worse than...

being manipulated by corrupt washington politicians?

i mean, F2F appeals to, or attacks, your thought/belief system while the corruption in washington steals your money and your freedom...

which is worse? the one you can turn off if you choose to (and go back to "sleep") or the one that will steal your children's future?

Arguing to Ends Justifying Means

Arguing to Ends Justifying Means might, if taken much farther, qualify you as a neocon. They, and Marxists as well, think its OK to use emotional appeals, fear and terror to achieve their ends.

We should stick to the high-ground of reason, since we own it. All the issues in F2F could have been addressed without the mood-music.

Whenever I watch a program I question the premises behind how the issues are framed. But if their is incoherence and obfuscation, the mood-music always gives the opinion of the producer away.

The First Hidden Libertarian Novel I Read

Was "The Auctioneer" by Joan Samson or Sampson. She sort of disappeared after she wrote it. It was a Best Seller. I have a movie coming out, "Black Messiah Murders" about the murder of Panther Leader in Chicago by the FBI.

I liked the movie

I think is stirred quite a bit of interest.

This studio interview with Mr. Russo about the movie cuts right to the chase. Think it is outstanding.

It was too good...

What a shame that Aaron Russo died at such a young age.

What's going on here???

I thought it was embarrassingly bad.

It's not accurate and it's so poorly made. If someone had given me that DVD before I was awake I would have thought they were a crazy kook. There are a hundred better videos you can show people to win them over to our cause such as videos of Ron Paul in the presidential debates. Those debates probably won the majority of us over.

perhaps you could...

pick out the many points that you absolutley KNOW are truthful and factual and concentrate on them...

criticism is good, i always advocate criticism but we should take the best of something and carry that part forward in our frame of reference...

ShannonOBrien, Isn't it wonderful to have 100's of choices!

At first I didn't like it as a tool either, but have grown to love the man who made it, to the point I appreciate his endeavor. It covers everything necessary to understand who's in charge and why. Anyone who watches it, and doesn’t awaken to their slavery,... deserves what they get.

So use the videos that work for you. Young people seem to believe anything they see on youtube when produced by another peer regarding questioning authority.

On the other hand older folks tend to require credentials before accepting what is being touted. Aaron Russo represents those credentials.

By the way, Aaron Russo helped pave the way for Ron Paul’s successes this time around, don’t think it didn’t.

RP debates

Are any websites offering all the debates on a dvd? sorry not exactly on topic.
thanks

Everyone is different

Millions saw the debates and were not won over or awakened.

Thats sadly true..

It just goes to show that for every smart person, there are a ton of idiots.

Agreed.

There were a few things that I thought really were worthwhile, but it was like picking through bones.

An Eye-Opener! Seriously,

An Eye-Opener! Seriously, this came to me when I was looking at the Libertarian Party in 2006 and boom, Aaron Russo showed up. Then I watched the movie and, if that weren't enough, saw a peculiar old man who was Congressman for Texas in that movie as well. ;)

Awesome film

When I first saw this film, I thought it was awesome, but it only led me to more research. The more I have learned, however, the more I see that Russo's aim was a little off the target. While most of the movie is accurate, and it's a fantastic starting point, the real issue isn't "where is the law?" That argument has lost time and again, ie. Ed and Elaine Brown. The issue isn't "the income tax and/or the IRS is unconstitutional". Again, you don't want to use that defense in court. Visit www.losthorizons.com to find the truth behind the income tax and the truth behind the income tax myths. Buy "Cracking the Code" and read it. Twice.

AFTF is a great starting point, though.

AFTF changed my life.

This is the film that woke me up in Jan. of 07. I was stirring a little in Oct. of 06 when Posse Comitatus and Habeas Corpus were being crapped on by the Military Commissions Act and the National Defense Authorization Act, but I was like that kid being woken up, "No mom, lemme go back to sleep, I'm still tired".

I looked into many claims made in this movie, and there is a massive amount information out there to back it up. This movie is how I heard about Ron Paul. Every time where I turned someone on to Ron Paul, happened as a result of me watching this movie, and I immediately started following him then. It was right after it I heard about his exploratory deal to test the waters for a run for the Presidency. I got to meet Ron Paul because I seen this movie.

This movie changed my life, for the better. However, I am about to pay for it big time. I'm going to have to save up thousands in the next few months and just pay them, because I do not want to wind up like Sherry Jackson, the former IRS agent in the movie who was convicted earlier this year. I'm gonna pay, because it is a ransom for my liberty and a gun is being pointed at my head. If more people were willing to charge the attacker and disarm him I would do it, but to do so alone would be suicide.

I have only this 1 respite to offer though. At least I will be paying the bastards in dollars that they have devalued much further than had I been paying out of my check all along, lol. Here's your worthless paper back you criminals!

Income Tax is unconstitutional.

Many lawyers and people who have done the research said this in the video. Ron Paul has stated that he would abolish income tax if he were president because it is unconstitutional. An IRS code book is not law.

There is not much being done in America that is in accordance with the constitution and it is completely out of control, with a fascist dictator declaring wars without consent of congress, and over ruling congress in the matters such as the auto bailout.

Speaking about income tax.

Speaking about income tax. Have you ever heard about the Winston-Gorman Tax Act? It basically consisted of a 2% income tax in the day. Why am I mentioning this? My dad's great uncle, Arthur Pue Gorman, was a U.S. Senator from Maryland. He proposed this. :/

Guess where I first saw this film?

Guessed yet?

It was at a forward deployed base in southeast Asia. Thats right. A fellow military member showed me this film along with many others. In fact our whole squadron sat down and watch it. To think some here have such disdain for our troops. We are not as dislocated as you think. Atleast the AF isn't.

ecorob's picture

i would hope that you could change your thought process...

to one of people here NOT having "disdain" for the troops because its NOT the troops we question, it is the political leaders in washington who order the generals to order the "troops" to do their bidding that we object to

Ok.. So who here has quit

Ok.. So who here has quit paying income taxes?

It might be easier if I worked for myself, fixing computers or something. But I work for a large company. My taxes are automatically deducted. And even if they weren't, my company reports my income to the IRS regardless of what I do or say

I have not quit paying Income Taxes.

I want the whole country to quit paying.
