If you are interested in seeing a showcase of the talent found within the grassroots liberty movement, the Midwest Liberty Fest is the place to be this October 9, 10, 11. At this time, the event organizers have confirmed the screening of four documentaries produced by grassroots activists from all across the nation; For Liberty, A New America, Camp FEMA, and and a yet unnamed documentary on video surveillance we are calling “Eye in the Sky”. Never before have freedom activists and constitutional scholars had the opportunity to see such an amazing showcase of high caliber liberty oriented movies.
The Midwest Liberty Fest is pleased to bring you these creative, original and dynamic documentaries. The draft schedule for the weekend can be found online. Tickets for the entire weekend events can be obtained securely online for a suggested donation of $20. This family friendly event will provide the opportunity for concerned citizens to learn about the issues of today, develop their activist skills, listen to liberty oriented music and participate in many exciting activities.
A summary of each documentary can be found below.
As the 2007-08 presidential campaign cycle offered up the usual slate of Washington insiders, Ron Paul, an obscure Congressman from Texas brought an alternative voice that challenged the political establishment.
Advocating a philosophy of sound money, a non-interventionist foreign policy, strict Constitutionalism, and individual liberty, Dr. Paul inspired a unique grassroots movement unmatched in American history – the repercussions of which continue to reverberate today and into the future of the American psyche.
For Liberty, How the Ron Paul Revolution Watered the Withered Tree of Liberty follows this historic campaign from the perspective of grassroots activists, and showcases the unique, often bizarre, yet groundbreaking projects they undertook as they brushed aside traditional campaign methodology.

A New America
The United States economy reached a meltdown point in September 2008. A Republican President and Democratic Congress passed a massive bill to bail out banks. Many Americans were shocked that the wealthiest country in the world could be in so much financial trouble overnight. This financial crisis occurred at a point when many Americans were already looking for change in their government and an election provided the opportunity.
Then Candidate Barack Obama promised to turn the page and take America in a new direction. A majority of voters were receptive to this message. Congressional leaders pledged to work with their new President to help his vision become reality.
Americans made a similar choice in 1932, when the economy was in a serious downturn. Franklin Delano Roosevelt promised a New Deal for America, a series of government programs to turn the economy around. FDR is credited by many historians for having spared the United States from drifting towards the totalitarianism that swept through Europe and other parts of the world at that time.
Barack Obama began his term in office in an atmosphere of heady optimism, in the wake of Abraham Lincoln. Many pointed to the Presidents agenda as the New New Deal and Barack Obama himself promised fundamental change.
And one cold January day, we embarked on the path to a new America…

In a country born out of political dissent, we watch our leaders in Washington slowly pass bills that label ordinary Americans as thought criminals and potential domestic terrorists for simply questioning the actions of their government. Senate committee hearings and official FBI documents further illustrate the mindset of our elected officials as they classify homeschoolers, gun rights activists and anti-abortionists as threats against the existing social and political order; by default creating an entire nation of radicals and revolutionaries – where everyone is a suspect… equally guilty until proven otherwise.
How has our government shown that they will deal with these people? The same way as every other totalitarian regime throughout history… marginalize their activities then lock them all up. Prisons are being built; internment camps constructed and laws passed that deal severely with anyone who dares to step out of line or ask too many questions.

Camp FEMA – Will you go quietly?
Eye In the Sky
This documentary details the surprising level of surveillance endured by the citizens of Lancaster, NH and the fight to preserve the Fourth Amendment rights protecting the right to be secure from unlawful searches. “Citizens Against Public Surveillance” contend with a textbook case of Fascism as local government aligns with public utilities and corporate big business to create a prison-like surveillance environment. Produced by Sam Ettaro and RepublicMedia.TV
