Kiefer Sutherland is to modern drama what John Wayne was to our grandparents.
The sad truth is that no man such as Jack Bauer or Rooster Cogburn has ever existed (at least as an employee of the state).
Seriously, I love watching 24, but it doesn't escape me that this guy was trained by and works for the same government that engineered the actions in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
Sure, you might argue that these operations had merit (and you might also argue on weak ground--except for, perhaps, Afghanistan), but clearly there are no Bauers on this country's payroll.
However, there are plenty of Obama's--men who spent nary a moment in defense of the constitution, but instead have plans to render it more worthless than double-ply Charmin (try wiping your butt with the Constitution, and you'll know what I mean).
Or you can just ask President Obama what it feels like, for he's been wiping his butt with the Constitution since he took office.
When will we realize that, if we truly adore the founding fathers, this government that we have is the very kind which they declared independence from and fought against?
The answer, of course, is probably never. While we enjoy much more technology than the people of the late 18th century, we are--beyond a doubt--far dumber.
We neither know the function of a constitution, nor do we appreciate the function. If I were not a part of the masses beneath the federal monstrosity, I would say that the people deserve what they've wrought.
I love America and all that it is supposed to represent; however, I feel like the parent of a meth-addicted child. I still love it/him/her, but I know that its future is down the drain.
Do you wish to know the definition of a co-dependent? It's those of you who continue to vote for republicans or democrats.
Don't you see that these are the very people who have led us to this?
And yet those of us who support "third parties" are ridiculed for being unrealistic and absurd.
Well, you have your reality. How absurd is it that you approve of it?
