A film about a story we think we know...
The important event was(and still is) apathy of the electorate.
A perfect illustration of Oscar Wilde's comment that "Democracy is a form of government in which the people can vote for the government they deserve..."

A strong reminder that elections have consequences. It's hard to imagine how all of our lives would have been different if this election had been decided the other way.

Political affiliation aside, I truely believe that Al Gore won the 2000 presidential election. I also believe that as long as people embrace the false belief that they live in a democratic society they deserve what they get.

Well, we all know how it ends, but some of the inside details revealed in this film make it completely worthwhile.
