Throw a "Patriot Party"

If you haven't seen this movie trailer then perhaps you should take the time. The full scale movie, "America - Freedom to Fascism" is being shown across the nation in some theaters, and by people who have purchased the DVD and are throwing "Patriot Parties" in their own homes or rented halls. Perhaps viewed as modern Paul Revere's, these folks are trying to spread the word about this disturbing video and it's message.

This movie has been produced by Aaron Russo, who has done films with Bette Midler (The Rose) and Eddie Murphy (Trading Places).

Russo has this to say:

- Are you aware by May of 2008 the law will require you to carry a national identification card?
- Are you aware that there are plans being developed to have all Americans embedded with a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) computer chip under their skin so they can be tracked wherever they go?
- Are you aware the Supreme Court has ruled that the government has no authority to impose a direct unapportioned tax on the labor of the American people, and the 16th Amendment does not give the government that power?
- Are you aware that computer voting machines can be rigged and there is no way to ensure that vote is counted?

Furthermore, on his website he says these are his Primary Objectives and what we need to do to preserve our liberty:

- Stop the polarization of America
- Stop the domination of the Democratic and Republican parties over our political system
- Shut down the Federal Reserve system
- Return America's gold to Fort Knox and have it audited
- Have Congress and the IRS, in a public forum, reveal the law that requires Americans to pay a direct, unapportioned tax on their labor.
- Make computerized voting illegal in all 50 states
- Keep the internet free and out of the control of large institutions
-Rescind the law called the Real ID Act so Americans never have to carry a National ID Card
- Make it illegal to implant RFID chips in human beings
- Educate juries to the fact that they have the right to determine the law as well as the facts of a case
- Educate juries to the fact that they are not obligated to follow the instructions of a judge
- Stop Globalization because it is the path to a one world government
- Protect our borders
- Restore the environment
- Put an end to the Patriot Act
- Sign up millions of Americans so we can accomplish our objectives

So tell me - is this fear mongering? or do you think there is truth to his warnings? Russo seems to have done some legitimate research which has also been done by others (Bev Eakman, Ron Paul, Charlotte Iserbyt, etc.)

I share many of these concerns regarding computerized voting fraud, the development of RFID chip use on humans, loss of US sovereignty, and the issue of taxation (which has gotten out of control in many municipalities and state governments), as well as the abuses being perpetrated in our judicial system. I think that overall we have to keep an eye on things and bring issues out to the light of day, seeing as how we know how the media can bury things. At any rate, the movie that Russo has put together gives us lots of food for thought, and I think it's worth a view. It seems to me that with the advent of movies ala Fast Food Nation and Al Gore's Global Warming piece, that perhaps we may see more of these kinds of movies which seek to expose issues.
Don't get depressed though; get the facts, get active, and get involved.
