For all the celebrating that happens on July 4th, the truth is that the vast majority of Americans are scared poopless of the thought of ever NOT DOING WHAT THEY'RE TOLD. So, as loud and whiny as they might get, most will forever remain obedient subjects, "law-abiding taxpayers" who take great pride in how well they obey orders and
"play by the rules." They think like slaves, act like slaves, and are treated like slaves. Then they complain about it.
