Happy Froth y'all!
In the "well what can we do" fizzed firework department, easy! Just pledge to start swapping use of these everyday words going forward:
"Republic" for democracy
(the point of Leonard's song)
"Liberty" for freedom
As in "at" versus just got outta jail
Your friends will twisty face at first and not know why. Slowly though-- the bitters will kick in, and soon, no more dependance Day!
"I am not at liberty to discuss this sir."
Oh no? Get outta my way then... because I am.
I am American.
