    The bigger the lie the more people will believe it.

    At first I was planning on documenting and refuting all of the problems with this little New Left propaganda piece but it soon became evident that anyone who believes the “history” presented in this video will not accept any of my facts. Therefore, I decided to concentrate on one point so that you can check it for yourself.

    “Today the United States spends more on defense than on all other parts of the federal budget combined. 33.37”

    This statement was presented in the video as text at the time I have indicated. In fact, the federal budget for defense is around twenty percent. This is a fact that anyone can check, with a simple Internet search. Need I go on?

    Most importantly, how can 33.37% be more than the rest combined...you know, the other 66.63%?
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

    The video file format is a standard DIVX with a funky header. MS Media Player refuses to play it. However, many other players, such as the free Media Player Classic, have no problems playing it.

    There are some players which will handle the above automatically. Google's player, obviously, is one of them.

    That particular file's link is:

    Indeed

    Why don't you share then?

    The movie is absolutely correct, you cannot have a free democracy with standing armies. It clearly crosses the line into imperialism.
