What comes to mind the most, is the origin of this country and how it's first generations were influenced by religious and ideological persecution, to form a republic bound by a formal declaration of intent titled, "The Constitution of the United States".
The best part of this document is the beginning, "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, 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."
To examine this, I'd like to break it down some, starting with...
- We the People of the United States...
There is a less than 2% minority group of people in this country who believe that they are the people referred to in that statement.
- ... in Order to form a more perfect Union
- ...establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense...
- ...promote the general Welfare
- ...and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity
Shit, cop em a break! The whole thing was written in cursive and spell check had yet to be invented.
Seriously folks, I know I wrote this to be amusing, but the joke is being played on us everyday by that 2% minority who only look at us as resources to be used to enhance their bottom line - PROFIT.
