The 2004 presidential election between George W. Bush and John Kerry provides the stage in ...So Goes the Nation, showing how the voting public is manipulated by both parties' leaders and their political marketing machines. In the final two weeks of the election, the filmmakers sent fifteen camera crews crisscrossing Ohio, a battleground state that has consistently lived up to its familiar political axiom: "As goes Ohio, so goes the nation." Historically, the political and social status quo of Ohio is indicative of the American voting public at large and Ohio has been the center of the political maelstrom many times in its short history. Since 1960, every President to reach office has carried the state. In the entirety of U.S. history, Republican candidates have never taken a Presidential election without winning in Ohio.
...So Goes the Nation features Hollywood A-List stars Matt Dillon, Steve Buscemi, Hilary Swank, Chad Lowe, Brendan Fraser, Joe Pantoliano, and Fisher Stevens in grass roots campaign efforts.
