America: Freedom to Fascism is a compelling and troubling account of how the wealth of our nation was silently passed from its citizens to a handful of powerful bankers in 1913. That’s the year the Federal Reserve Act and the 16th Amendment were introduced, giving a privately held corporation the means to control our finances while ensuring its interest payments through the strong arms of the newly-formed Internal Revenue Service. Ever since then, Russo suggests, Americans have been gradually conditioned to accept fewer freedoms and a lower standard of living… all the while considering debt and servitude as distinctly American values.

Russo’s first and most cogent point is simple: Americans are not required to pay a federal income tax. That’s a bold statement to make, as few people believe that such a fraud could be perpetrated for so long. My father, himself an accountant, insists that the income tax is a very real thing. Russo takes that same belief to IRS employees and simply asks them to cite where it says an unapportioned income tax is required of us all. Guess what? They can’t. In a telling segment Sheldon Cohen, former commissioner of the IRS, goes so far as to reject Supreme Court rulings and the Constitution as benchmarks over what is legal with regards to taxation. Russo also interviews members of the tax honesty movement as well as disenfranchised IRS agents who agree that no law on the books conjures up a requirement to send the government part of one’s hard-earned paycheck. Russo then showcases court cases where those accused of tax evasion have won precisely because the prosecution cannot provide evidence of a legal federal income tax law.

It’s shocking to have it hammered into your head over and over that you’ve thrown your money away for nothing, but repetition is good; it helps knock loose the deeply entrenched belief that we owe a portion of our livelihood to our government.

    Mr. Russo,

    You basically have finally produced a statement of fact Americans cannot deny once they see your DVD.

    How do people get these videos to distribute and hlep the cause?

    We definately need a government established with either three parties or the best ase scenario no politial parties just our governemnt officals elected by the states to represent the interests and will of the majority of American people.

    Top Ten changes needed:

    Control and cut off illegal immigration

    Get rid of the federal reserve and establish the USA FEDERAL RESERVE ROPERATED AND OCVERSEEN BY CONGRESS!

    Restruture or trade syatem to where the USA products and imports are not in a deficit with any country and restructure the trade agreements. Put America First and back to work

    Make the IRS responsible “finally” to the people and not us to them. Change that terrible regime.

    Get the US military to back the American citizen in the reincarnation of our constitution.

    Develop a more reasonable energy policy and not one based on Al Gores vision of the world.

    Enlist some educated, strong and Patriotic leaders to lead us where we should be.

    Change the education system to where if you are not doing you job you are out!

    Organize the “tea Partys in a more grandeoso, more organized, louder and for many of the reasons I mentioned verses just taxes.

    Thanks for you film. How do we get more?

    Is there an organization tuned in to all of these concernes you mentioned?

    Best Regards,

    Joe Tomei

    Ah, Aaron, it’s a pity that you are gone. How are you enjoying the Alex Jones Show so far? I know you saw him release “Reflections and Warnings” so he could give what you learned more voice to the populace of this planet. Still, as you can see, there are more people taking up the banner now.
