This is the Preamble of the U.S. Constitution, the way it was penned by the Founding Fathers. I take it to mean exactly what it says:
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, ensure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”
It seems there are a lot of people; government officials, judges, or just plain a’holes whom think this is a “living document”. That the Constitution should be upgraded and interpreted in different ways as times change. After all, they are fine upstanding public servants that want nothing but the best for our country. None of them would ever have any self-serving interest at heart. Would they? The Founding Fathers must be wrong. How could they know what a Socialist government full of tyrants, kings, an elite ruling class, taxes out the wazoo, with everyone breaking their back just to keep the ”King” happy would be like? A copy of “Country Building For Dummies” would come in handy.
I decided to give the “King” a head start and redo the Preamble for him. Up-dated and up-graded to reflect today’s society. If they want to rewrite the entire Constitution, they’ll have to do it without me. I just hope I’m not around when these a’holes do this for real.
“We the Illegal and Elite People in the United Socialist States, in Order to form a more perfect Union for ourselves, establish Justice for the Elite, ensure domestic Tranquility as long as you agree with us, provide for the common defence for all Countries except this one, promote the general Welfare services we are entitled to, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity not yours, do ordain and amend this Constitution for Our United Socialist States of America.”
PS – I know this is primarily a motorcycle blog, and there has been a lot of political post as of late. But I’m thoroughly disgusted with the way “all” politicians have acted the last few years. Besides, I don’t know how much longer we’ll have them, so I’ll exercise my First Amendment rights while I can. And my Second Amendment rights if I have to.
