Is This Documentary Broken?
(Click Here To Let Us Know)

The American Dream is a 30 minute animated film that shows you how
you’ve been scammed by the most basic elements of our government
system. All of us Americans strive for the American Dream, and this
film shows you why your dream is getting farther and farther away. Do
you know how your money is created? Or how banking works? Why did
housing prices skyrocket and then plunge? Do you really know what the
Federal Reserve System is and how it affects you every single day? THE
The American Dream takes an entertaining but hard hitting look at how the
problems we have today are nothing new, and why leaders throughout our
history have warned us and fought against the current type of
financial system we have in America today. You will be challenged to
investigate some very entrenched and powerful institutions in this
nation, and hopefully encouraged to help get our nation back on track.

        f you really are interested in economy and history (economic history) I suggest you do a bit of your own research, by using multiple dependable sources. This is a better way to form your own opinions, instead of just switching your brain off and automatically absorb everything that is told to you, whoever it is. Remember that economy is a science (economics), studied in universities around the world by thousands of scientists. There is plenty of information available.

        • Sincer18

          yeah but you know whats funny, right about now those scientists are coming up with the same same data as what is being express in this and numerous documentaries and ive done the research myself allthough the truth can be stretched a bit in this doc, fundamentally its exactly what’s going on in this crupit democracy, so get YOUR facts right, wake up and see the world we live in.

    Better post this under Conspiracy… Stereotypical Classic Antisemite portrayal of the wealthy Jewish families as an Octopus-like evil creature which controls the world, banks and society… very sad! …Same kind of propaganda as seen in the late 19th century as well as early twenties and late thirties of the 20th century by certain German leather glove-wearing totalitarianists…

    • the truth

      This has nothing to do with Antisemitism….it did not mention even one time that the bankers are Jewish, not one time in the entire doc. I don’t hate bankers because they are Jewish (allot are not Jewish) I hate them because they are rich, arrogant, powerful DICKS that subvert democratie and caused the biggest economic meltdown in 70 years ( they also had allot to do with the depression to). Every time somebody points out something that is wrong with the actions of a Jew, ppl say its antisemitism. Well I call bullshit on that, if you do something wrong, its wrong no mater what religion you practice….. If you cant tell me what is actually factually incorrect in this film I would be happy to hear it. In fact please do, I love this stuff and this is obviously a bit biased.  But saying its antisemitic is just a cop out…  same as wen ppl call me a antisemitic because i criticize the fact that in every Arab Israeli conflict has a kill ratio of about 100 to 1. Or point out all the ways Israel is allot like South Africa before the end of apartheid. The truth is a hard pill to swallow.

  • Nice!

    What an awesome fucking documentary. All too often Americans today are quick to criticize either solely government or private industry for our current economic ailments, when the two have worked in tandem since the dawn of corruption. Good to know films like this exist to present information to the lazy, uneducated masses.

    But that takes more than a few hackers to do – it requires you, me and everyone who see’s something very wrong with the system today to act out in non-violent and legal ways.

    Thats not at all how banks were created and the fist papper money dident come for a lot later

  • jman

    this documentary has nothing to do what its talking about. if u look up the people who made this documentary you’ll see that its made from a gold and silver company. throughout the documentary they hint at buying gold. although some of the arguments they make are valid, they are just using current issues (in this case, debt) to get their hidden message across to get you pumped up  and overlook the fact that this is just a big commercial for gold. 
    but then again americans aren’t smart enough to realize this.

    although this doesn’t effect me directly, i’d like to say the American system is screwed and a lot of smart people already knew about this… Go study some economics…

    They have repealed Posse Comitadas. Homeland Security, just bought 750 million dum dum ammunition, the Deboult guarantees undetectable fraud in election results, and mass media is their propaganda outlet, and if these safe guards to their tyranny don’t work, they have 800 new concentration camps with tazier contests. These guys are as serious as Hitler and will prove to be more bloody. Oh , do  I despise what they are doing, and would love to see their heads on a pike, but they just grow old and die lying like MaNamara. Add all the executive orders and full power to the continuity of government they created, and there simply isn’t enough military power to bring them to justice in the USA, that requires a love of freedom and our army mostly lies to itself as it goosesteps across anybody called terrorist. During Nam, I discovered why the universe is a vacuum in Portsmith Naval prison. Navy sucks! Millions more dead civilians, maybe it’s us, in the US this time.
