Wake-up People!, 7 July 2008
Author: thehun-4 from Canada

This move in my opinion is one of the most important movies of the year and for that matter the last 5 decades. The underling problem with the ideology of the leaders in this country is what this film hits right on the head. This film is not talking about victory or loss it's a move about brain washing an entire country for political and financial gain. Unfortunately as long as people take this sort of; Oh well that's just the way it is; kind of attitude and ;Oh were just oblivious and we let our government make decisions for us; the people who made this country are the ones truly being dismissed. "When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. Thomas Jefferson"
