I just got this. I hope it isn't a repeat (no search)and I didn't Snopes it, but it reads well:

NEW PREAMBLE TO

THE CONSTITUTION

Representative Mitchell Kaye from GA. This guy should run for
President
one day...

'We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help
everyone get along, restore some semblance of
justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive
behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free
liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby
try
one more time to ordain and establish some
common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden,
delusional, and other liberal bed-wetters We hold
these truths to be self evident: that a whole lot of people are
confused
by the Bill of Rights 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, but 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 generation after generation of
professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation
of
another generation of professional couch
potatoes

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 interested 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 away 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. (AMEN!)

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 way, 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 where 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. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe
in
any religion, any faith, or 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!

I really believe that is what it meant the first time....no liberal interpretations.

Sounds good to me. Now if we could find 100 people for Senate positions and 435 for the House of Representatives and one President that believed the same thing we would have it made.
