To hear people talking about how important it is to "protect" our freedoms. We should not think like that. We should fight for our freedom, not to protect it! What is the point of having freedom if you have to protect it in the first place?
Freedom, by itself, is the most powerful word -- enough to rattle the tyrannical governments and that we should acknowledge that it is there. Do not protect it. Do not pad it. Do not weaponize the word. Put it on your sleeves and show it.
Frankly, I'm sick of people abusing the word too much lately. It aggravates me to hear Bush and others saying that we have to protect our freedom. It's total pointless if you think about it.
