Only the living can kill the dead!,
This review is from: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (DVD)
I didn't know what to expect from such a movie. When I grew up we were taught about Abraham Lincoln in such a way as to believe he was the epitome of the most honest and strong leader we ever had in some of the most difficult times our country has ever endured. The twist in this movie still portrays Abe in a similar light but also one in which he is one of the few humans who knows about vampires and one of the even fewer who is a vampire hunter/slayer.
The twist in the civil war is that it is not just a battle to free the slaves but to free them from the vampires who rule the south. If the South wins we become a nation ruled by vampires and if the North wins we become a nation ruled by humans. The special effects are good and the acting is not bad. My wife is reading the book and she told me that the movie moves at the speed of light when compared to the book and it breezes over a lot of the issues. The action sequences just took over the storyline and the movie to make it as exciting as possible.
They have rewritten history to make an entertaining movie. We both enjoyed the movie and we give it 4 stars.

or perhaps there are unseen metaphors going on here.....as was hinted at in the wizard of oz
is a strawman fiction or real?
only those who realize why we're in debt, and that debt climbs due to promissory notes [ the dollar is a note, a promise to pay, tho service is given or products are bought using them, the debt is not actually offset, yet ] and is being used as money but are not money tho accepted as money...and have built in interest [ see secrets of oz on youtube ]
[[ look up NOTE in financial dictionary ]]
....it had to be pointed out to me for me to get it....it'll b interesting to see if this resonates with anyone at all.
