On the day Barack Obama was elected the 44th President, more than 58 million voters cast their ballots for John McCain. In the months leading up to this historic election, filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi took a road trip to meet some of the conservative Americans who waited in line for hours to support the GOP ticket, and saw their hopes and dreams evaporate in the wake of that Democratic victory. These voters share their feelings about the changing America in which they live.

For her fifth HBO project, Pelosi visited 28 states and spoke about the fight for the soul of the country with mostly conservative Americans, who feel underrepresented by the mainstream media. From the Pulpit Freedom Day in Bethlehem, Ga. to the NASCAR circuit, RIGHT AMERICA: FEELING WRONGED shows a country at war with itself over the religious and cultural identities that define America.

Many interviewees were particularly incensed by what they saw as a lack of any meaningful media attention given to their message during the election campaign – including their views on such hotly contested issues as gun control, abortion rights, religion and gay rights – and by a perceived media bias against McCain and running mate Sarah Palin.

    For every member of the right who doesn’t KNOW what they are talking about…

    In a
    socialist society the means of production [1]
    are owned by the workers rather than by a rich minority of
    capitalists or functionaries. Such a system of ownership is both
    collective and individual in nature.

    It is
    collective because society can control production unlike the
    economic anarchy of capitalism and because production is for the
    common good rather than for individual profit.

    At the same
    time it is individual because workers are no longer a ‘collective’
    mob of alienated non-owners employed by a minority of owners. Work
    becomes a free and self-affirming activity for each worker and they
    receive the full fruits of their labor. The capitalists and their
    servants no longer control production nor grow rich from other’s
    toil. Everybody is an owner. Socialism is genuine free enterprise.

    There should be a new category of mental retardation to describe these people.

    Americans you need to wake up. Your leaders are polarizing you against each other in any way they can; propaganda, politics, religion, bullshit, lies
    They are inventing issues and blowing them out of proportion to occupy people with bullshit as they continue to seed dissent.They need to do this in order to make you easier to control. Divide and conquer, divide and rule. You’ll see it if you just take a minute to look at the world around you as they are not even trying to hide it anymore.However, their power over you is just an illusion they are desperately trying to keep up. Look at how badly they reacted to the Occupy movement, how afraid they really are of you. 

    Stop them from destroying humanity.

    By and far the best left wing documentary I’ve seen. Is this made with the intention of making the right look good? If so that’s hilarious! But i’m pretty sure it’s pro left devils advocate type thing. So confusing…

  • mmm

    Look out we will be back soon! You guys had it and couldn’t handle it…what a mess of it!

    Good film. The sad thing is that a lot of folks don’t realize that neither party is going to address the core issues this nation needs to deal with and be decisive on: the debt, abortion, crime, and immorality generally. Unless these things are addressed and turned right side up, the nation will continue to go down. It may be too late already.
