Mixed in with great sound bites from real political figures like Ken Blackwell and Tom McClintock are unique and humorous vignettes of animated politicians like Barack Obama and Ronald Reagan. This light-hearted approach to the dark subject matter of out-of-control government spending is fun and unassuming. The film is certainly worth the view if you're a conservative, a Tea Party member, or an open-minded independent thinker. If you identify with the left side of the political spectrum, you will probably not enjoy this film (despite the clever jabs at George W. Bush and Sarah Palin's intelligence). There is simply too much Obama-bashing for you to stomach. Not for me. Obama has come to represent modern socialism--an ideology that Bush II seems to have prototyped during his stint in office and there cannot be enough bashing of that ideology for my tastes.

I was afraid this documentary would be strictly partisan after skipping over Bush I and praising the Gingrich era. But Griggs makes it clear that the principles of freedom are not a partisan issue and that Republicans can and have promoted big government just like the Democrats (though not to the extent that we see today).

All in all it was an enjoyable if not life-changing documentary. Buy it and watch it. Tell your friends. And, most importantly, do something about it!

Excellent documentary! The film was well done and provides a learning experience for all age groups. After watching the movie, I checked the information for its accuracy and found it to be all true. A must watch for those who value their future in America!

We saw this movie in the theater at the suggestion of a friend who knows the writer/director. My 10 and 12 year old children accompanied their father and I for a fun time seeing this movie! When we came out, our 12 year old son said, with great relief, "Now I understand what socialism is!" That alone was worth the price of the tickets! Since then, he has asked, on more than one occasion, "When is I Want Your Money coming out on DVD?" This is a greatly amusing movie, with political satire, economics lessons and great spoofs of the characters. A must to anyone wanting to understand or explain an otherwise dull topic!

This movie gets past all of the hearsay and goes directly to the facts. If every American would see this movie- we would be out of the recession in 18 months!

If you are an independent or moderate, consider watching this film. There are plenty of recent films that attack capitalism and the libertarian viewpoint (Moore, Gore, et al). This film does attempt to persuade you to embrace the Reagan/Republican/Libertarian viewpoint. So it could indeed be considered "propaganda;" however, maybe it's time for such a film to be presented stating this point of view's case.

I suggest that you, the independent or moderate, watch the progressive films and this film (along with the recent Atlas Shrugged). Then you, the jury, after considering both sides, can make your decision at the election both in 2012.

I give this film an A+ for its presentation and its humor (that not only pokes at Dems but also several Reps.

I have seen this on netflix luckily,The film is great and while it seems to the bots' to be a film against their chosen and as of this writing(AA downgrade) leader,You cannot deny facts,The Crats took over when Bush was in promising Fiscal Order(Pelosi)and since then they have had their chance and sadly have lost,We are now in a worst condition than ever under Bush and yet it is 2011 and we still hear the same sad argument from the Left about Bush,the documentary is pretty easy to understand even for the hardest of those who still cannot find error in their ways.
The Main Premise is Right all along,Higher taxes and re-distribution is not the Answer.

Every American should have been required to watch this before being allowed to vote in 2012. Great perspective on our declining economy and country just two years after Obama was elected...and yet people still voted for him in 2012.

The core argument at the heart of this film, which is that government works best, and freedom for the individual citizen is maximized when government is limited to its role in protecting our rights, instead of sticking its nose into running the economy and sticking its hand into our taxpayer pockets, would've been far made far more effectively, clearly and fairly if it didn't spend so much time on the pro-Reagan and anti-Obama theatrics. The truth is, EVERY administration since the end of World War II, Republican AND Democrat (which right now, is an even 6 and 6), has increased taxes and expanded the size of government, in one way or another, but the film cherry picks facts in order to pretend that Obama is somehow the only President who has ever advocated greater government intervention into our lives. It doesn't mention that Republicans do this too, as it tends to focus its ire on ECONOMIC intervention (stereotypically the domain of liberals and Democrats), but ignores PERSONAL incursions into people's bedrooms and other personal habits, which is has been a problem for the Republicans, in particular the right wing. It gives some lip service to the fact that George W. Bush (the caricature of which is oddly depicted in a green suit, for some reason) departed from economic conservatives, but for the most part, it tries to paint Reagan as a saint and Obama as a misguided would-be dictator. It even tries to credit the dot com boom and 1990s prosperity to *Reagan*, while denying Clinton any credit for balancing the budget or producing a surplus, or anything aside from being a philanderer. The animated sequences are cute, but too much time is given to them, bringing the film closer to the realm of parody than polemical. The film could've benefited from a more even-handed approach that was driven by consistent adherence to small-government principles (what John Stossel, one of the interview subjects, practices on his show) instead of the typical partisan hypocrisy and pro-Reagan hagiography.

Well done presentation, without being boring! Educational movies like this can help to inform America about the unsustainable economic path we've embarked on.
