In 2005, filmmaker and Truthout reporter Chris Hume took the nation’s pulse. He traveled the forgotten corners of America and let the people speak. It proved to be a disturbing, humorous and surprising odyssey. In the pivotal year of 2008, he traveled even further. This is the first of a series of episodes from “Red State Road Trip 2”: a 10,000-mile journey into the heart of America. Short videos from the documentary will appear on Truthout every few days for the next several weeks.
