Aaron Russo, writer/filmmaker/director of the movie America: From Freedom to Fascism, discusses the history of the Federal Reserve system, the true agenda of those in power, and the legality of the IRS (Internal Revenue Service). He exposes how the federal government is not legally allowed to charge American citizens a federal income tax, and how our civil liberties are eroding under the guise of national security.
