Highly recommended for all citizens
20 October 2004 | by (Great North Woods, New England) – See all my reviews

This flick will educate you on the inevitable outcry following the 2004

election (no matter who wins).

This film examines the botched 2000 elections in as an objective manner

that I've seen, doing so in a non-ranting, tell-me-the-facts manner.

It clearly documents that the election was not over "hanging chads" and

delves into its seemier aspects. It cites Jeb Bush and Katherine

Harris for their various acts of malfeasance, knocks Gore for things

like only seeking recounts in 4 democratic-leaning counties, and even

points out the blatant conflicts of interest of Supreme Court justices

with interviews with the individuals in question. Greg Palast of the

BBC explains his investigative reports (something very few Americans

are aware of) very well. While the film is from 2002, it is not dated

and it also includes a bit on potential problems of electronic voting.

As a former high school civics teacher the 2000 election particularly

disgusted me, not only because of the inevitable warping process that

the undemocratic electoral college inflicts on our presidential

elections, but because I saw it as a clear indication that the concept

of "fair play" had gone out the window. This film makes that crystal

clear, citing the facts to back up that opinion. It will be an

education for most any citizen.
