Libertarian Film to Show in Myrtle Beach

David McElroy is a local libertarian political consultant who wishes to start a new career in video production. I’ve seen his new film “We’re the Government — and You’re Not,” and it’s great. It is a humorous and witty take on three primary political issues (while mentioning quite a few others): taxes, financial responsibility and asking questions the government really doesn’t want asked. Here’s a message I received from David:

It’s me again with a brief note to let you know that, “We’re the Government — and You’re Not,” will be showing this weekend at the Myrtle Beach International Film Festival in Myrtle Beach, S.C. (I also found out this weekend that the film is one of five nominated as best short film by the festival’s judges.) That makes six festivals for our little film so far. Just to recap, we’ve screened in Atlanta, Birmingham, Chicago and Portland, Ore. The remaining two festivals that we already know about are in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., and Myrtle Beach. I hope there will be more to report later.

If you are in the Myrtle Beach area, it’s definitely worth the drive to watch this short film. Here are the specifics.

I like tasteful cigars, private property, American whiskey, fast cars, hot women, pre-bailout Jeeps, fine dining, worthwhile literature, low taxes, original music, personal privacy and self-defense rights -- but not necessarily in this order.

  1. Speaking of films, does anyone know the status of Russo’s film? Have the screenings ended? Is it going to be released?

  2. Mike,

    Russo and I are playing phone tag right now. I’ll probably have an update soon, though. I’m getting all sorts of e-mails where one group is trying to raise the funds for a full page ad in the NY Times.
