Here is a simple animation cartoon style to show you the simple truth of How Great America (was). What made it that way & exactly what would destroy it if we let this happen.



Make Mine Freedom (1948) - YouTube


Show this to all your friends and encourage everyone to get out and vote so this will not happen!!

It's already happened. Not much left to take.

Wow. Red bating, false dichotomies, fear mongering, paranoia, arguments by assertion, loaded language, and all sorts of emotional appeals.

This is a great study in propaganda.

However, believing in it was bizarre before (example: John Birch Society)...63 years later there is a long history of why this was insane.

No one wants the House Un-American Activities Committee again.

Even though it slants sharply to the right it is worth watching. The unmentioned ISM was communism or Naziism, but it is also cautionary about McCarthyism which took over within ten years.

You do realize that it is a propaganda piece and in 1948 restricting the vote and race hatred were the rule in Southern politics at the time. The fact is you couldn't find a class room like they showed in the video (1:00-1:05) anywhere south of the Ohio river.

Do you realize it is a cartoon depicting what will happen if we give up all of our freedoms so we can let the government control all of our lives.

did you see Obama in that cartoon 'running' to get away from the truth.

First the Paulbots gave up mainstream media as a source of information and instead trusted in U-Tube to provide their information and guidance and now they have completely hit rock bottom and are watching 1948 Propaganda Cartoons to get their guidance.
And they wonder why so many Americans consider them crackpots
