Trump Campaign Sponsors Libertarian Movie

Submitted by: The J. Neil Schulman Living Trust

Campaign spots for Donald Trump's presidential run today began sponsoring plays of the libertarian movie "Alongside Night" -- based on the novel endorsed by Milton Friedman and Ron Paul -- on the Roku 24-Hour Movie Channel

Las Vegas, NV-AZ (OPENPRESS) The presidential campaign for Republican candidate Donald J. Trump began today sponsoring showings of the libertarian movie "Alongside Night" -- based on the Prometheus-award-winning 1979 first novel by J. Neil Schulman endorsed by Nobel-laureate Milton Friedman, "A Clockwork Orange" novelist Anthony Burgess, and Dr. Ron Paul -- on the Roku 24-Hour Movie Channel.

The movie, released in limited theatrical runs in 2014 and subsequently playing on iTunes and Amazon Video/Amazon Prime, as well as release as a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack -- began playing October 3, 2016 on The 24-Hour Movie Channel, with sponsorship mostly by the Donald J. Trump for President campaign.

The movie stars Kevin Sorbo (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, God's Not Dead), Said Faraj (Green Zone), Jake Busey (Starship Troopers, Contact), Tim Russ (Spaceballs, Star Trek Voyager), Garrett Wang (Star Trek Voyager), Gary Graham (Alien Nation, Star Trek Enterprise), Mara Marini (Parks and Recreation), and introduces Christian Kramme.

The movie's description by The 24 Hour Movie Channel: "In a collapsing near-future U.S., brilliant high-school senior Elliot Vreeland's (Kramme) search for his famous missing economist father (Sorbo) and family puts him between an out-of-control federal government and a revolutionary anarchist underground."

The movie presents in dramatic form the philosophy of Agorism -- advocacy of black-marketeers building a free society by avoiding taxes, smuggling off-the-books workers from Mexico, trading in guns and drugs, and even private ownership of nukes -- presented by the late libertarian theoretician Samuel Edward Konkin III, a severe critic of the Libertarian Party and the Koch Brothers.

Alongside Night the movie was adapted to screenplay by the novel's author, J. Neil Schulman, whose previous screen credits include the 1986 Twilight Zone episode where a time-traveler stops the JFK assassination, creating a self-destructive timeline. Schulman also directed the Alongside Night movie as his second feature film after 2008's Lady Magdalene's starring Star Trek: The Original Series' Lt. Uhura, Nichelle Nichols.

@JNeilSchulman thanked the Trump campaign for sponsoring his movie in a tweet today in which he wrote: "Thank you @realDonaldTrump campaign spots for sponsoring @AlongsideNight the movie on the 24-Hour-Movie channel! Make Agorism great again!"
