As the 2007-08 presidential campaign cycle offered up the usual slate of Washington insiders, Ron Paul, an obscure Congressman from Texas brought an alternative voice that challenged the political establishment. Advocating a philosophy of sound money, a non-interventionist foreign policy, strict Constitutionalism, and individual liberty, Dr. Paul inspired a unique grassroots movement unmatched in American history - the repercussions of which continue to reverberate today and into the future of the American psyche. For Liberty: How the Ron Paul Revolution Watered the Withered Tree of Liberty follows this historic campaign from the perspective of grassroots activists, and showcases the unique, often bizarre, yet groundbreaking projects they undertook as they brushed aside traditional campaign methodology.

As a Ron Paul supporter who put his boots on the ground during the campaign, I simply loved this documentary. The film brought back many great memories of the good times we had, and informed me of some of the moments of the campaign that I had forgotten. The interviews were excellent, the cast of characters unforgettable. this film may not be for everyone, neocons and leftists will probably not understand, but for someone who was there, and lived the experience of working to change America, to right it's path, I am extremely pleased that this film was made.
I especially liked how the producers exposed the media bias, especially Fox News, and the vendetta they carried against Ron in the debates and commentary. The country should have been up in arms over the shameful treatment he received from the media. Dr. Paul should be commended for his quiet dignity through all this, and the film makes this evident.
I can't wait for "For Liberty, part 2, Ron Paul wins, 2012!"
