America: Freedom to Fascism

I watched America: Freedom To Fascism this evening with Jed, Nick, and Steve. It was a full house at the 8pm show which, I understand, was added only when the 7:30 show sold out. The film focused on the alleged unconstitutionality of the income tax and the efforts of producer Aaron Russo to find the truth. He covers the Federal Reserve Bank, the Council on Foreign Relations, mentions the banks who were supposed to be behind the whole thing, and interviews extensively former IRS agents and tax protesters. Congressman Ron Paul presents his views.

Russo covers the national id card, rfid chips for people, and the Ohio exit polls vs the real results. I found the Ohio exit poll part the most uncredible part of the whole film. Lets face it. Every poll has a margin of error of more than 3 percent. Bush won ohio by 51 to 49, less than the margin of error of the exit poll. The film was well received by the audience and there was clapping at a number of points in the show. It remains to be seen whether this film will motivate anyone other than the current crop of believers to do anything. There were a few conspiracy nuts in the audience.

Just curious what constitutes a "conspiracy nut". Is it someone who has turned off the TV and investigated this stuff much deeper than Russo's film, which by the way, is an excellent portrayal of what's really going on. Why is it that just because someone takes the time to investigate our history and finds corruption, that they're a "conspiracy nut"? It's a dangerous reflection of the current characteristics of American democracy when people who are willing to question fraudulent activity are labeled as nutty. If more people questioned what our "leaders" are doing, we could establish a better world to live in.
