As evidenced by the lack of a Civilian Security Force, Thomas Jefferson clearly wasn't attuned to the needs of today's society, lacking the requisite modicum of hope and desire for the right kind of change, so a revision to some of our founding documents has become necessary, to animate them in the same manner as our living constitution. And so it begins:
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for
one people The One to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them him, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind the international community requires that they he should declare the causes which impel them him to the separation deliver hope and change. We He holds these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created to be made equal, that they are endowed by their Creator President with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life tax rebates for those who the government favors, Liberty freedom to do what is permitted and the pursuit of Happiness goals the state deems appropriate.
More as time (and the government) permits... but I'll have to work on getting Michele Obama's words in there somewhere:
Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.Posted by Charles Austin at November 13, 2008 02:08 PM
