As a POTUS-playing Bill Pullman put it so eloquently in the 1996 razzle-dazzler Independence Day, “We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on. We’re going to survive. Today, we celebrate our independence day!” Heck, that’s rousing enough for us to reach for our (illegal) box of Roman candles, burst out into a chorus of “American, F--k Yeah” (from the movie Team America, which does not star Pullman but does contain deviant puppet sex) and demonstrate our love of country by shooting one another with flaming balls of fire.
