So you like hearing about how you are being grifted by what was supposed to be the "servant of the people" Great! Here is a good place to start.
As a film the first half of this was excellent. It is completely worth seeing if you pay taxes or are considering paying taxes someday. Aaron Russo sets out to make a point and does it pretty well. Very good interview footage and great editing. You can argue the validity of his claims with outside information all you want and cite whatever technicality that you wish and you might be right but NOBODY can refute this statement; "You don't get all the facts from Uncle Sam and when you don't get the facts, usually there is something to hide." So at the very least, this doc is effective at illustrating that point using the IRS and the income tax issue as a case study.
The second half of the movie gets a little more wide eyed and points, vaguely, in the direction some other issues that Russo would like us to look in including RFID, corporate monopoly over the media, and the New World Order wisely avoiding the word "Illuminati". The fastest way to get anything legitimate you have to say dismissed is to even whisper that word. I didn't mind it, but I could see how the ending could off putting to those of us who haven't read "Behold a Pale Horse" or spent a few hours in a room with Jim Marrs.
Russo's sincerity shines through this movie and I don't recall him directing the viewer towards any particular interest group, (other than a general acceptance of 3rd party candidates) which is refreshing.
In conclusion go see this movie. It is a wonderful piece of work that will shine a very uncomfortable light on your current perspective unless you've been bull-horning the Bilderbergers for years, in which case you already knew all of this was happening and are probably just happy that you and your family haven't been forced to manually turn the turbines that power Mt. Weather.
