There is a strong likelihood that many of you are gearing up for a holiday purchasing spree, so the timing of this film is perfect.

It’s the story of “stuff” -- the electronics, the toys, the clothes and all the other material goods that we in the United States use to express the meaning of the holidays and, at other times of the year, our very own personal value.

Yet all of this “stuff” carries a hefty price tag, not just for your wallet but also for the planet and the people who live on it (that’s you!). This film explains how “stuff” ends up in your home, detailing the processes of extraction (trashing the planet), production (adding in toxic chemicals), distribution, consumption and ultimately disposal. The impact all of this has on communities at home and abroad are hidden from your view, yet it is immense.

This is a complex, interactive web that many of us fail to fully appreciate.

This video may make you laugh, and it may make you cry, but it will definitely change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.

Sustainability must be the call if we ever hope to pass any decent life on to our offspring. At the fundamental core, as you will see, though, is the government.

That is why we desperately need someone firmly committed to freedom and principles that will sustain our environment -- and one of the primary reasons I am so passionate about supporting Ron Paul.
