This film catches the spirit of the electorate! It's a clarion call to all of us to get involved, run for office, and become the policy makers of our dreams.

"Washington, You're Fired" puts the House, the Senate, and the President on the hot seat as pink slips fly in D.C. Voting, running for office, and getting involved in the political process are discussed and promoted, as well as, social issues and how they are being used to divide the nation and our two-party system.
Nevada State Chairman of the Independent American Party, Chris Hansen writes, "Social problems will never be solved if the Constitution and its protections FROM the government are lost. Washington, You're Fired hits the nail on the head concerning this issue - the best patriotic video since Freedom To Fascism."
The compelling new release by award-winning filmmaker William Lewis is hitting audiences like a statutory-sledgehammer. "Washington, You're Fired" highlights the reality of the President's illegal spy program and exposes the viewer to a barrage of illegal and unconstitutional bills that have been passed with bipartisan support; which will affect Americans for decades to come. Noted Constitutional Attorney, Jonathan Turley, heads up a cast of unforgettable interviews and cameo appearances by government officials and media personalities - each with the same goal on their mind... "How do we get someone in the White House that has a record to back up their oath to support and defend the U.S. Constitution?"
Vote counts, bill-breakdowns and analysis of terror-war legislation are leaving audiences stunned and infuriated...legislation such as the USA Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, and the John Warner Defense Act have crippled the U.S. Constitution and weakened the liberties that Americans once thought they could never lose. The loss of Habeas Corpus and Posse Comitatus, coupled with a new definition of "torture" are just the tip of the Orwellian iceberg.
If enacted, HR 1955 will, for the first time, put "thought crime" laws on the books, robbing citizens of their right to freedom of conscience thought. From the National ID card controversy, to the vicious abuses committed in the wake of hurricane Katrina - one thing is made perfectly clear in the film - we need immediate political change in Washington, D.C. or the liberties enjoyed by the people of this country will continue to quickly disappear - possibly forever.
Washington, You're Fired is a chance for every American to play a serious game of political "catch-up" minus the partisan punch lines. Former Georgia Congresswoman and Green Party Presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney raves, "This film catches the spirit of the electorate! It's a clarion call to all of us to get involved, run for office, and become the policy makers of our dreams."
The movie comes with a full color "Do You Know Your Candidates" voting record pamphlet, detailing how Clinton, Obama, McCain, Paul, McKinney, and others voted on draconian legislation such as the Military Commissions Act (ending Habeas Corpus), The John Warner Defense Act (ending Posse Comitatus), the Detainee Treatment Act (protecting torture), Military Appropriations bills (Iraq War), and the Real ID Act rider attached to HR 1268 (National ID Card). Does your candidate pass the constitutional litmus test?
Media requests for interviews with the filmmaker and review copies are available.
