Np. Was just updating netflix to see if there any new docs and this popped up. I thought it was really good. Both parties get blasted pretty good espically Bill Clinton's crime bill. Least they showed him acknowledging that he was wrong. Surprisingly to a small extent Newt Gingrich came off a tad sympathetic on a few things. Let me know what you think . I had forgotten about the organization called
ALEC. Yikes !

Anyone who thinks we are all not wholly subject to government fiat these days unless you have the $$$ to pay it off, is blind without a cane. We all exist by its leave.

It's a great documentary no matter what anyone says. Stuff you do not learn in history classes sadly.
