Worth Seeing for Both Sides
28 October 2012 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

Having gone into the theatre without reading anything about it, I am struck with how scholarly it is. Here we are in the confine of a dark movie threatre with total attention to the screen, unlike if you see this as a news special at home with all the distractions, has the advantage that it totally focuses you to the Obama controversy. It is undeniable we are the product of our upbringing. What we learned in our formative years shaped us in ways good or bad. There is no controversy about Obama's connection from early age to marxist ideologs and radicals. Obama may see America as imperialist in same lens his father Barrack Sr did on Great Britain. It is not to say Obama is right. America has taken very few outposts throughout its history. Far as we know Hawaii,Puerto Rico do not want to bring away from the Union - this is the key test. How Barrack Jr sees America as this great evil is still mystery. His actions does show he wants to radically transform America to something our founders not envisioned nor wanted by the majority of Americans. A greater mystery yet is Obama Jr insists on pursuing the transformation of America despite major opinion to the contrary. Given that chance, in his own words he'd be free to do much more in a second term, 2016 could indeed be freightening. And once you have sold a significant population to the promise of communist utopia, it maybe too late to turn back. They would not give up the spoils taken from the backs of so-called "rich" without a revolution.
