America: Freedom to Fascism

by Lindsey Salls
Determined to find the law that requires Americans to pay income tax, Aaron Russo (THE ROSE, TRADING PLACES) sets out on a journey. Neither left- nor right-wing, this startling examination exposes the systematic erosion of civil liberties in America.

Through interviews with US Congressmen, a former IRS Commissioner, former IRS and FBI agents, tax attorneys and authors, Russo connects the dots between money creation, federal income tax, voter fraud, the national identity card (becoming law in May 2008) and the implementation of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to track citizens. A striking case about the evolving police state in America.

Well-informed Americans will be familiar with much of the evidence Russo has capably assembled:
• The operation of a secretive power elite, most visibly represented by the Council on Foreign Relations, which seeks political and financial control of the world;
• The key disclosures made by Georgetown historian Carroll Quigley, who had access to the power elite's papers and secret records, as outlined in his book Tragedy and Hope;
• The use of perpetual war to generate public debt, and constrict individual liberties;
• The relationship between the banking cartel and corporatist trade pacts like NAFTA, GATT, and CAFTA - and how illegal immigration is being used to advance the consolidation of the Western Hemisphere into a European Union-style mega-state, which means the loss of our national identity, our prosperity, and eventually our liberty;
• The emergence of digital microchip technology portending the use of implantable IDs.

In the film's final frames, Russo does invoke the concept of "civil disobedience" - which he defines to include boycotts, strikes, and passive resistance of totalitarian impositions, where necessary and possible. But he never loses sight of the fact that any worthwhile changes have to be made through Congress as a result of conscientious citizen action.

"America: Freedom to Fascism" opens on July 28th in New York City, Chicago, Austin, Tampa, and Kansas City. This film needs to be seen by everyone! The public does not understand what is going on in this country right under our noses.

If you near any of these cities, please go see the film. It will premiere in other cities in the country starting September 1st. For further information, trailers, flyers, and screening information, check out the website:
