Are you aware that there are a ton of other countries that are as free or more free than American that don't have the armed forces to protect their rights or their "system"? Switzerland doesn't even have an army and they are a free nation, people can go to web forums and spout off any ignorant thing they want to say, no one is "protecting" their freedoms. The only thing the armed forces in America does, is protect our government and bully other nations into complying to our laws and commercialism and taxes and trades. Get a clue.
"A total of 149/196 countries in the world are deemed free. However, this includes countries deemed partly free. Only 87 countries in the world are deemed completely free."
