I found a copy of this documentary at my local Dollar Tree. Cost me one buck for a 4-DVD documentary. I thought, this will be cool. And it COULD have been a great documentary... But rather then seeing America as a melting pot of races, cultures AND IDEAS, the idiot filmmakers of this documentary focus quite heavily on the Left/liberal side of America. This documentary had loads of hippie/type ideals spewed at you throughout the entire run of the show. I figured... America (the country) has several different views and beliefs of where our country came from, and where it's headed... If I just watched long enough, there would be someone I could perhaps see eye to eye with. I know I'm not the only one who shares Conservative American Values in this great country of ours... But those views never came-It never happened. And, if you haven't already figured out the spin/bias of this "documentary", the "bonus disc" has a special episode. Can you guess what the "bonus episode" entails? A whole episode was dedicated the 2000 DEMOCRATIC PARTY convention! Boo!!
Now before you call me an Archie Bunker... I am totally happy that my views about America are unique to me. And I'm equally happy and comfortable with the fact some people disagree with my opinions. That's one of the beauties of this country of ours... Freedom of choice. I'm just a middle aged guy with a high school education... I don't claim to be a smarty pants... And I don''t believe I possess the ultimate truths... However, it's a shame the makers of "America!" couldn't see fit... Or even recognize the fact that it takes both Democrats AND Republicans to make America great... And to see to it that BOTH parties/ideologies are and should be represented. I guess that was too much to ask. I spent one dollar on this DVD set. I was vastly overcharged.
