A shining example
If you don't understand the need for separation of church and state, just follow events in Iran.

If you don't understand the importance of the 2nd Amendment, just follow events in Iran.

If you don't understand the importance of keeping the military separate from the civilian leadership of the government, just follow events in Iran.

Feel free to add your own.

Jeff Foxworthy versions:

If you hide at night from marauding terror squads, you might be an Eye-raynian.

If your vote is tabulated but not counted, you might be an Eye-raynian.
