Great Americans Win an Academy Award

Good on the Academy for recognizing the heroic efforts of American patriots Edward Snowden, Laura Poitras, and Glenn Greenwald.  It's an award very much deserved.  Citizenfour is a great documentary of how a good public servant makes good on his duty to his nation, even when it means extreme personal cost.

Now we just need a sequel, played in real life, where we overcome the rampant constitutional violations that are occurring on a daily basis, and hold those corrupt public "servants" accountable who are responsible.
