(By Debbie Morgan) Most people in the united States are familiar with the Constitution, but how many of us really understand it? Did you know it contains expressed protections for both individuals and state governments against a tyrannical, over-reaching central (Federal) government? Don't Tread On Me, the new release by the producer/director team that brought us Camp FEMA, takes the viewer on a quest for enlightenment about the protections our Founding Fathers intended for our new country and its citizens. It is an eye-opener that exposes the viewer to the facts about the 9th and 10th Amendments to our Constitution, why they are so important in maintaining our freedoms, and so much more.
The central government has used the Commerce Clause to usurp our freedoms
over and over again. MO State Senator Gary Nodler says the clause "has been
interpreted so broadly as to literally affect every aspect and phase of
American life. That is the loophole that has been used to so dramatically
broaden the application of federal power, far beyond the intent of the
framers of the Constitution." So, what can we do?
The new film's producer, Gary Franchi, says "The Feds are about to feel the
wave in the upcoming election and the whole system is going to shift in
favor of the people and along those same lines the States are continuing
their push to be once again recognized under the 10th Amendment. A perfect
example is the new Oklahoma legislation we discuss in the film, along with a
new bill that would provide the people in Oklahoma, via the 9th amendment,
religious exemption from the federal databases."
Don't Tread On Me gives the viewer a long overdue civics lesson and empowers
the viewer with knowledge of which the central government hopes the viewer
remains ignorant. Narrator and film director William Lewis boldly states
that you cannot do anything about enforcing your protections if you do not
know what they are. In the film, Constitutional expert and author Dr Edwin
Vieira explains to the viewer that "We-the-People have the authority; we are
the ultimate law-givers..." something we, as citizens, seem to have
The guest list for Don't Tread On Me is a veritable Who's Who of true
Patriots and guaranteed to light the fire of freedom with the viewers.
Along with Dr. Vieira, guests include Radio Host Alex Jones, Former AZ
Sheriff Richard Mack, Former Presidential Candidate Michael Badnarick,
American Policy Center's Tom DeWeese, and a host of other activists and
state politicians. You will not want to miss what these fine men and women
have to say about the many rights afforded us by our Founding Fathers.
Franchi and Lewis are excited about the new Nationwide Simul-Screening.
Franchi says, "In just two days, we went from 39 screening locations to 135
locations, both public and private." Those holding screenings are showing
the film in libraries, school theaters, private homes, regular theaters, and
one man is even showing the film in his front yard. "It is amazing how the
message is catching on." For those holding screenings, screener packs are
available at special discounts to sell, as a way to offset any costs. There
is also a free poster download for promotions.
Jones states, "In the last 20 years we've seen an acceleration away from our
constitution and Bill of Rights and towards absolute despotism." The latest
Lewis/Franchi production makes known that, as "law-givers," it is time we
step back in and take back our power. While the incumbent losses continue
to grow and those who are being systematically removed from office scratch
their heads, the American people are waking up. They have had enough and
are drawing their lines in the sand. Vieira reminds viewers "self
Government is not a spectator sport." It's time for all of us to take
