Imagine, if you will, George Washington leading troops into battle against the British, only to be hit by a sniper, killed, and leaving his soldiers without direction, and nowhere else to go but back into the hands of the British. There would be no America, no symbols and monuments (like Mount Rushmore, the Lincoln Memorial, the Statue of Liberty, and so forth), and thus nothing to inspire future generations to carry forth the progress of Liberty, equality, and justice for all. That said, imagine if the very spirit, convictions, and principles that led to struggle, bloodshed, and sacrifice, which eventually amounted to a standard of living, and thus a standard of government to guarantee every individual residing in this country the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness were vanquished. Should that spirit have been vanquished early on, the very victories that have defined our greatness as a country may not have ever happened if that scenario involving George Washington would have taken place. That story, no doubt, would have yielded an entirely different outcome.
From Dinesh DSouza, and Gerald R. Molen comes a fresh and unique look at America, its history, its spirit, and what sets it apart from any and every other nation before it. That said, without Americas distinct qualities, its internal battles, and individuals yearning for a life that is better than what society and the culture confined people to, the world today would not know freedom from slavery from a scale it knows today, equality on a variety of levels, and the value of possessing the ability to write ones success and future from their own creativity, skill, and abilities, rather than rely on a Kingdom to be submissive to, without (for most people anyway) a standard of living higher than peasant.

They may not have exactly done it with deliberate consciousness, but how they describe the film reflects their partisan biases and prejudices against it, meshed with their emotional reaction to the movie (in the reviews I read, at least). And so, when many of these critics were writing their articles, they would, “freeze it” and “polarize it” as if it is a “Conservative” movie (which they would go out of their way to emphasize), made by the guy who did the “Anti-Obama” documentary. Those buzzwords, if you will, do enough to turn off the interests of partisans, and even mainstream folks who are not really into politics, but have a negative view of Conservatives in general. In addition, if people are told that it is a “right wing movie,” many will simply take them at their word. But they will lose out on what the film really is, and I don’t believe that this movie should be classified as a “right wing” movie because it simply SHOWS the audience a bigger dynamic at work for them to contemplate. That’s it.
This is, by no means, a partisan movie. It is a movie that brings to light the American story that is overshadowed by the alternate story. It also uncovers to exposure, the hidden foundations for the type of Government we have now, and leaves us with a clear decision to make.
