Politicians - make your laws, break your laws but they do not actually protect your laws.
Lawyers - Argue your laws, use and abuse your laws, but they do not protect your laws.
Judges - Interpret your laws, strive to honor those laws, but do not protect your laws.
Police Officers - Try to enforce your laws, try to stop fellow citizens from acting uncivilized. But they do not protect your laws.
Reporters - Report the news, mangle the news, and provide you with their news about your news. But they do not protect your Freedom of Speech.
Teachers - They promote liberty and freedom, they show how liberty and freedom was achieved, they show the cost that someone else paid for freedom and liberty.
Soldiers - Protect your laws, protect you from uncivilized hostility that would devastate your life, your family, and everything you care about.
Veterans - All of them but especially the ones eligible for the Veterans of Foreign Wars did the protecting.
This is the land where you can be as hostile as you wish to those who protect(ed) your right to commit that act. Rarely do we ask for anything in return. Never do we take your things, never do we take your partners, and never do we openly complain when you disrespect us. Many other countries you'd be whipped, mutilated, and/or shot for such things.
All in all, this is the Land of the Free. We proudly defended this land, and you, no matter what cost we had to pay.
