27. I'm not feeling very free knowing my
government is spying on its citizens; the "press" has become a propaganda tool; my vote may or may not be properly counted; my "representatives" are beholden only to lobbyists and corporations; I don't even have a legitimately elected head of state; I am not allowed to exercise my "rights" of free speech and assembly without fear of being arrested; a medical emergency could bankrupt me; more than half the members of Congress are rubber stamps for the most corrupt criminal regime ever to come to power in DC, and the other half rarely show any inclination to put up a fight; my government invades sovereign nations for oil and imperialism, slaughters innocent people, and practices torture - all in my name.

The America the founding fathers fought to realize is dead, and the American people stand idly by while the Bush Crime Family continues to desecrate the corpse.
