Ron Paul Revolution: The Movie

Washington Examiner writes:
The Ron Paul “Revolution” is making its debut in a new political thriller about what happens when the federal government loses control of the economy and foreign policy and is met with a second American revolt.

"Alongside Night," an independent film being shown to small audience around the nation, features the libertarian folk hero cheering a return to the gold standard and railing against an out-of-control government, and a star in Kevin Sorbo who echoes many of Paul's themes of the past 20 years.

Sorbo, who plays free-market economist "Martin Vreeland" in the movie, "encapsulates a lot of the ideas that Ron Paul is talking about," said J. Neil Schulman, who directed the movie based on his book and screenplay...Paul’s part in the movie comes in a news clip during which he warned about the currency collapsing. “He presciently is talking about the currency being vulnerable and could collapse at any time and is just the perfect thing in that moment of the movie when the character retrieves gold,” said Schulman.

 "A great movie, sure to be recognized as a milestone in libertarian entertainment." -- Scott Bieser, artist, Big Head Press

"The story is, by turns, touching, suspense-filled, violent when violence was called for, highly polemic, and altogether satisfying."
L. Neil Smith, The Libertarian Enterprise

"A movie dedicated to promoting liberty and warning about a too powerful government." -- Coos County Democrat

"Abundant professional talent and an adequate budget supported the making of this fine movie. The result is visually bright and stunning, laced and layered with great music and pregnant with the theme of the unquenchable human spirit seeking liberty."
--Jerry Jewett, Mondo Cult



  1. A rallying cry for Satan's followers, this is. The dominos are lining up; it won't be long before the first one tips.

    1. Ahhhhh, yeahhhhhh. Rrrrrriiiight.

    2. I was thinking the same thing Miguel. I'm beginning to think that this guy is just a troll like JW. After seeing several of his posts it's just beginning to be too stupid to be real.

    3. That's right Mikey, everyone who's not a libertarian/anarchist is a troll. That's a nice echo chamber you have there. Eventually, you're going to have to actually refute some arguments instead of throwing out insults.

    4. "That's right Mikey, everyone who's not a libertarian/anarchist is a troll."

      Like I said, you can't read. I never said EVERYONE who posts that isn't a libertarian is a troll.

      "Eventually, you're going to have to actually refute some arguments instead of throwing out insults."

      Again, you can't read. Beside,s what you said needs no refutation. It's like saying I need to refute someone who insists gravity doesn't exist. Your posts are so bizarre that I just can't take them seriously. So I find them trollish. If you're actually serious then you DO need help. If it's lack of education see the link below. If not then seek medical attention.

      Come on. Don't be lazy. READ. I have NO interest in refuting morons. They're a waste of my time. If you want to learn, then go to the link and start reading. It's a great place to start.

    5. Nah, a troll is a troll. You can tell one by the fact that he offers his opinions without bothering to offer a valid argument.

      And, frankly, Mike's contention about JW being a troll is well-substantiated. His message is simply a warning for new people who may be unaware of the fact. Has nothing to do with JW not being a libertarian.

    6. is your Bible, Mikey, not mine. The true gospel was spoken by the apostles, not men in suits and ties. You lack discernment, that's why it doesn't make sense to you.

    7. " is your Bible, Mikey, not mine."

      LOL! I never said it was. That's a good place to start learning economics and even history. I don't see the theory of marginal utility in the bible.

      "The true gospel was spoken by the apostles, not men in suits and ties."

      I never said it was the gospel. You seriously can't read can you?

      " You lack discernment, that's why it doesn't make sense to you."

      So gravity doesn't exist. I must lack discernment. Got it. LOL!! If you're not just a troll you need to seek medical attention pal. Although it is fun reading your stupidity.

      It cracks me up. From Catholics to idiot fundy Protestants tell all arrogantly tell me I lack discernment. They hold their little noses in the air acting all high and mighty. It's hilarious! And they can't even agree with each other what the bible REALLY means, ROTFLMAO! Then this Anon morons comes in and makes no arguments whatsoever while accusing me of the same thing.

      Pal, you're just LAZY. You don't want to THINK. You'd rather just say, "Oh, just have faith and take it up the ass like a good little slave". No thanks. I have more sense than that.

      It's been fun. Now go run off and play little man. :)

    8. I'm still waiting for you to refute my initial argument. Typical atheist: "he's on to something. Quick, change the subject and then accuse him of not answering my distraction!" I'm not Catholic or Protestant, by the way. So apparently while the various denominations disagree on the particulars, they all agree that you lack discernment. I'd say they're on to something. Poor Mikey, may you receive a new heart one day and cast off your heart of stone.

    9. "I'm still waiting for you to refute my initial argument."

      I already did numb nuts. I provided you with a link that will answer all the nonsense you could spew but you're just too lazy to read it. An pal, you haven't even made an argument yet except for "libertarianism is evil" but you have offered ZERO evidence to back it up. So I'm sill waiting for you to make your argument. You haven't even done that. And btw genius what makes you think I'm an atheist? Just because I'm calling you out on your stupidity and laziness that's why.

      "I'm not Catholic or Protestant"

      So what are you then. Jehovah's Witness? Eastern Orthodox? Or are you one of those crazy fundies who likes to disassociate himself from both?

      "So apparently while the various denominations disagree on the particulars, they all agree that you lack discernment."

      I said they make that claim toward each other not just atheists. Hell, I've been accused of everything from an America hater, terrorist sympathizer, Jesuit conspirator, Catholic, Protestant, and even a neocon or a liberal. It all just depends on what I was debating them on. LOL! Now I have this idiot thinking I'm an atheist.

      Since you're too lazy to find the information yourself I'll provide some direct links you can sink your teeth into. Here's my arguments:

      That should keep you busy for awhile. All of these links are to FREE books you don't have to pay for. Perfectly legal and ethical. Now, I'm waiting for you to brush the cobwebs out of your brain and start studying. When you're finished let us know.

    10. Dude. Just, dude. Seriously? That's an argument?

      You're not Christian, but feel free to speak on Christian behavior and the recognition of the pure evil nature of the state.

      Wow. Has anyone ever told you that you're too stupid to see how stupid you are?

  2. I liked the book. It is a bit outdated given it was based in the '70s inflation and oil embargo scenarios. I'll be interested in seeing how they've updated the movie from the book. Good for Schulman getting some cred on this. I hope it is successful for him.

    1. Unfortunately, most of the libertarian themed entertainment media is as lame as Christian rock music.

      Think "Atlas Shrugged" the movie(I & II) much potential, wasted so horribly.

  4. I don't know why this is relevant but I was an atheist when I wrote the novel Alongside Night in the 1970's and was convinced by personal evidence of the existence of God by the time I wrote, produced, and directed the movie beginning in 2011 and finishing in 2013. It's the same themes in both the novel and movie.
