Ecards for the American Independence Day
What’s your favorite thing about Independence Day? Mine is when Will Smith punches that alien squarely in the chops and says: ‘Welcome to Earth!’.
I don’t know a lot about American history but it’s obvious that Americans take these regularly-timed alien invasions very seriously. When President Bill Pullman makes that stirring speech about how important it is to defend his country from aliens, it made me wish I was an American too. Because his speech made no mention of defending the Earth, just America, which seemed a bit rough on Mexico and Canada, I thought.
“We’ll save our country from these pesky aliens but nobody else!” was my take-away from the entire film. That’s why many of us move to the United States; this is the only country where people take alien invasions seriously.
