Like any man with big problems, Charles Bentley blames everything on the government. That changes when he has a chilling* vision of a world without Congress. Silent expressionist cinema, Lawrence Welk’s bubble machine, and a plot shamelessly lifted from It’s A Wonderful Life convince Bentley that Congress must assume complete power over every aspect of our lives. It all leads to the explosive climax when Bentley composes a speech about Congress ... in real time! Weep for your grandparents, children, because this is how they learned about government before Schoolhouse Rock.

* NOTE: vision of the world without Congress may not be chilling to Ron Paul supporters
