Two versions of the American dream now stand in sharp contrast. One views the money you earned as yours and best allocated by you; the other believes that an elite in Washington knows best how to allocate your wealth. One champions the traditional American dream, which has played out millions of times through generations of Americans, of improving one's lot in life and even daring to dream and build big. The other holds that there is no end to the "good" the government can do by taking and spending other peoples' money in an ever-burgeoning list of programs. The documentary film I Want Your Money exposes the high cost in lost freedom and in lost opportunity to support a Leviathan-like bureaucratic state. Written by Ray Griggs

Those who condemn this movie simply don't have an open mind. We, THE PEOPLE, are sick and tired of government growth...under both parties. It's time we stopped the madness. The Reagan - Obama comparison provides great insight into how to handle an economic slowdown, and obviously Reagan's plan worked much better than Obama's. If this movie had the opposite message (that Obamanomics actually worked), it would be hailed as an "innovative cinematic achievement". But since most of Hollywood is quite liberal, this movie will get very few positive reviews. The writer has used a great technique to appeal to every age, gender, race, etc. It provides a light hearted view of a serious subject which should get people thinking about just how irresponsible all levels of government are with our hard earned money.
