Friends, on Independence Day and on every day, remember that freedom isn't free.
That shit all costs money.
Freedom—the ability to realize one's full potential as a citizen—is often won by dissenters whom the state has deprived of their freedom, their basic rights, their means to live, their pathways to prosperity. Conditions grow so intolerable that they & their allies risk beatings & shootings from the people hired to protect the wealthy & powerful.
If you love your freedom, thank a protester.
