Our Soldiers Gave you the Rights

How dare you bash my soldier. I take personal offense. My soldier, and all soldiers, stand for freedom. What does this mean to you? Well they stand for your freedom of speech, even if that "speech" is to bad-talk the very establishment that gave you the right in the first place. They stand for and protect your freedom to burn our sacrad flag which, "A thoughtful mind when it sees a nation's flag, sees not the flag, but the nation itself. And whatever may be its symbols, its insignia, he reads chiefly in the flag, the government, the principles, the truths, the history that belongs to the nation that sets it forth. The American flag has been a symbol of Liberty and men rejoiced in it." Henry Ward Beecher
