If you believe in democracy, you must understand this issue
Review by Public N. on 12/28/21 review stating If you believe in democracy, you must understand this issue
If you believe in a strong democracy AND are not yet scared to death of current campaign finance laws then you must see this video. Using an actual court case involving a campaign finance violation, it demonstrates how undisclosed political donors use their money to elect candidates committed to donor causes turning our state legislatures into corporate puppets. But the best part is how concerned citizens can fight this destructive practice. Hats off to the good citizens of Montana who have not backed down in the face of the 2010 Supreme Court ruling in favor of Citizens United. Democrats and Republicans alike who are willing to act to ensure their state government remains their own. So compelling.

frightening look at manipulation of US politics
Review by W B. on 12/28/21 review stating frightening look at manipulation of US politics
this is a well composed examination of dark money- corporate (and possibly foreign governmental) special interests that are infiltrating state federal politics to promote their agendas. The State of Montana is examined in detail; Wisconsin discussed tangentially and implications for the rest of the country are all too evident. This film should be required viewing for every US voter. I feel that the majority of American citizens have no idea how pervasive an influence these groups have, who they are what their ultimate goals might be. This is without question the most important film I have seen in years.
