Untold American history
30 March 2013 | by vonhoffmanguntherSee all my reviews

This movie is talks about the hidden, untold story of American history that is never mention in our American history books. It is one of these films that right wing conservatives don't want the rest of the country to see because it shows that we still had all sorts of corruption after the war.

One of the other reviewers stated that this movie show that the 2nd Amendment is the ultimate guarantee of our rights. If that was the case, it would have not taken another 20 years for the Afro-Americans to get their civil rights after World War II. In addition, we still have problems with police even today with violating civil rights from the 1920s all the way up today. If Americans took the 2nd Amendment seriously, police and business corruption, plus organized crime would have been wiped out a long time ago.
