[first lines]
Narrator: The United States of America: rich, diverse, well-fed, proud, free. The United States of America: poor, hungry, scared, oppressed. There are those who say the United States is an empire, a dictatorship possessing fascistic elements. There are others who insist it's a democracy, or a representative republic: the realized dream of the founding fathers. Can both assessments be correct?

Riveting, Mesmerizing
1 October 2004 | by (Shawnee Mission, Kansas) – See all my reviews

This is Michael Moore (e.g. Fahrenheit 9/11) without the venom. An intoxicating initial film debut, built on little more than guts and determination. In making "Liberty Bound," it is astounding the number of sheer coincidences that happened in Christine's midst.

But could these be sheer coincidences? It is doubtful. As Christine was on a cross country breakout tour, she described an immigrant lady from Germany saying, "this is exactly what happened during the Third Reich!"

A reader can call me crazy; maybe even call me loco! I am not making any assertion. I am only calling on each viewer to see "Liberty Bound" for themselves.

Also because the numbers you see are in the aggregate, it does not tell the full story. Few have leveled very low scores. Approximately 85% of the other raters have given this movie a 9 or 10. You owe it to yourself, your country, and your family to see this movie! Otherwise, American Democracy was well, but a nice try for 225 years.
