NEW PREAMBLE TO THE CONSTITUTION
Somebody said this was probably the best e-mail he’d seen in a l= ong, long time. The following has been attributed to the State Rep. M= itchell Aye from
"We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to he= lp everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, ke= ep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, her= eby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guide lines for= the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, and delusional. We hold these truths = to be self evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rig= hts 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, bu= t 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 genera= tion after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more th= an the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes. (T= his one is my pet peeves...get an education and go to work...don't expect every= one else to take care of you!)
ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we're just not interes= ted in public health care.
ARTICLE VI: 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 VII: 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 aw= ay in a place where you still won't have the right to a big screen color TV or= a life of leisure.
ARTICLE VIII: 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 IX: You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the wa= y, 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 X: This is an English speaking country. We don't care w= here you are from, English is our language. Learn it or go back to wherever you came from! (lastly...)
ARTICLE XI: 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.&nbs= p; And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, o= r 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!!!!
If you agree, share this with a friend. No, you don't have to, and nothing tragic will befall you if you don't. I just think it's about = time common sense is allowed to flourish. Sensible people of the
