Exposes the truth about the IRS & Federal Reserve System
24 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Wow! I thought I knew what to expect when I saw this film. However, I didn't realize how deep Aaron Russo would dive into the inner workings of the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Reserve. Even the IRS doesn't know the very laws that it is supposed to be(and doing a good job of) enforcing. One wouldn't think that Gestapo-like tactics would be used in America, land of the FREE, but they are. Every American who thinks he/she is truly free (as our Founding Fathers intended us to be) will be shocked and disturbed at the truth. We are enslaved and the truth shall set you free. You can't ignore the facts in this film. I commend Aaron Russo for his fearlessness as well as for educating his fellow Americans.
