Fourth of July - A Constitutional Reflection...

As the Fourth of July weekend arrives, I find myself in need of reflection.

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...
What does that mean to you? To me, it means THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES, ALL OF US!

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
The use of the word Union in this document is very painful to the 2 percenters, and is generally regarded as one of the earliest influences of Communism. 
  • ...establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense...
    Justice is relative only to their interests, and domestic tranquility can be bought with private security firms and gated communities.Common defense is important, but that's what everyone outside of the 2% club can be fooled into providing.
    •   ...promote the general Welfare
    Promote welfare? Who the fuck wrote that into this document?! Probably the same filthy commie bastard that used the word UNION instead of...I dunno...oligarchy?
    • ...and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity
    This part is easily bastardized by the 2 percenters, to them it's just saying that God has blessed them to take liberty of everything for themselves to increase their prosperity. Clearly the Constitutions editorial staff back in the day missed a typo or two...

    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.
