New Preamble to the Constitution

I received this in an email last week. It has been attributed to State Representative Mitchell Kaye from Georgia.

"We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional, and other liberal bed-wetter’s. We hold these truths to be self evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of NON-Rights."

ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.

ARTICLE II: You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone -- not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc.; but the world is full of idiots, and probably always will be.

ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful; do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.

ARTICLE IV: You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.

ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.

ARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don't be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won't have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.

ARTICLE VII: You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.

ARTICLE VIII: You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an over abundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.

ARTICLE IX: This is an English speaking country. We don't care where you are from, English is our language. Learn it or go back to wherever you came from! (Lastly....)

ARTICLE X: You do not have the right to change our country's history or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, and if you are uncomfortable with it, TOUGH!

  1. I loved it patrice! My name is Scott Bennett and my wife jan and I are avid WND readers from SE Idaho, Victor in fact. I have written a book called Revelations, about the tribulation and its survival , should the reader not be so inclined to believe in God and be raptured beforehand. Much of what you stated in your article today is just such advice as i gave. A pleasure to read your work! BTW my e mail is Revelations@silverstar.com

  2. Oh Yay! I agree!!! Good Preamble~ As for the Christian heritage of this country, it would do well for the folks who don't believe that to have a look at every state's preamble. There is a name God, or Providence in every last one of them! I do like this version though~

  4. It would do well for people convinced that this country was founded on Christian foundations to look at the writings of the Founding Fathers. The word "God" does not automatically equate to Christian theology.

  5. while i agree with most of what is written. "in god we trust" is wrong. it was not even claimed to be the motto until 1956 (not really historic by most peoples standards). It did appear on the money in the late 1800's but not widespread (and 100 years after our Constitution was written). Our founding fathers wanted E Pluribus Unum.

    The Establishment Clause of the First Amendment states that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.

  6. President Theodore Roosevelt took issue with placing the motto on coinage as he considered it sacrilegious to put the name of God on money.
