Luis J. Rodriguez, to provide a voice to those who are left out of the
media. (Chomsky) 70% of the public is simply disenfranchised. The lower seventy percent on the income scale. So that has very little resemblance to democracy. That’s plutocracy. (Crowd) What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now! (Luis) I’m trying to bring in a whole new imagination. (Professor) I think they stand a

(Amy) So you have to go back and you have to have a media that is asking serious questions, not just focusing on the horse race, you know, who’s ahead by 1% and 2% (Jesse) Does the marginalization of third party and independent candidates reflect a freedom of speech suppression?

writers of Left Out. I’m here today to request funding towards the copyright,
editing, soundtrack, distribution, advertisement, and finalizing this
documentary. It is really important for us to spread the word of third-party
candidates and their vital role in our political system. So we need your help.
