A must watch for millennials
17 September 2019 | by deeannratcliffSee all my reviews

I haven't cried this much since losing my brother 7 years ago. This is a very hard watch but very necessary. The division in our country is heartbreaking, our youth haven't been taught the truth about our great country. The very institutions that have put them in debt failed them. We need to show these angry kids the truth so they can have the future and freedom we have known. They need to see this film to feel what Americans do and why we love freedom so much! I cried so much watching this but I cry more that our country has allowed our University's to not just put our youth in debt but infect their minds against America. Our kids actually believe socialism is good. God bless us and God bless America
