Storyline

A politician, giving a speech, has 120 seconds to convince the crowd to vote for him. Making quick calculations based on their cheers and jeers, he moves away from promising jobs (that will result in money and happiness, but that take work) to promises to lower taxes, send the poor to work camps, and raise money for the army. His final platform: "Do you want to be rich now? Vote for me." The crowd goes wild. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Giving you insight into stupid people...
22 January 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an incredibly cynical film that unfortunately won't be appreciated by the majority of the people in this world. While I know I will come off an elitist (and I am, to a degree), politicians count on the stupidity of the electorate and that is why we end up electing evil and incompetent people who say absolutely nothing!! This film illustrates this very well, as a man running for office says anything to appeal to the audience--even though much of it is double-talk, meaningless and convoluted logic designed to appeal to morons. I love how at one point the man promises to make everyone rich. Later, he says that we MUST have some poor people because otherwise no one will be considered rich! That's crazy but so much of what he says in this insightful film explains why we pick who we pick. Don't believe me? See this film and think about the folks we've chosen as our leaders--as a democracy only works if the people are responsible and not governed by selfish self-interest as well as have a working brain. Clever and a bit scary.
