Publisher’s Note: I took a stab at modifying the 1776 American Declaration of Independence to present standards of governance, moral malpractice and cowardice and discovered that much would be left out on the cutting floor and severe alterations to verbiage would be necessary to keep the Homo Sovieticus Booboisie in America from filling their pants and gibbering in abject fear at the prospect of freedom with risks and costs not underwritten by their neighbors. I had to erase over half of it and wipe out any reference to any behavior absent government permission. So I had to move on to the more fitting document for human bondage and perpetual government, the Constitution.
The Declaration of Independence continues to be a masterwork of brevity and directness in its promise to sever ties and formalize a divorce. There is no sizable sector of America today that would even have the temerity to sign it much less live up to it.Well, maybe at an abolitionist meeting but I digress.
So I scrapped that project and found a document more in keeping with the modern 21st century American mood.
Now the Soviet Constitution is something that most Americans can cotton to with the slightest modification in verbiage. I chose the latest of three variants from 1977. I have included a link to the original text at the bottom. All I changed were the descriptors and none of the prospective language.
On another note, in a nation that has institutionalized theft and torture and turned it into rule and color of law, I figured the Supremes would get around to the codification of taxing inactivity which is the secret sauce in the recent ruling. On page 193 of the infamous recent decision, Thomas says the most important observation in all the pages of painful and obtuse totalitarian apologia for ObamugabeCare:
“As I have explained, the Court’s continued use of that test “has encouraged the Federal Government to persist in its view that the Commerce Clause has virtually no limits.” Morrison, supra, at 627. The Government’s unprecedented claim in this suit that it may regulate not only economic activity but also inactivity that substantially affects interstate commerce is a case in point.”
Most of the ahistorical tax cattle automatically associate the 4th of July with the wretched Constitution anyway. Constitution Day is in September but why wait when the DI has been so famously and ingloriously betrayed in every aspect of its essence and message.The majority in that decision would applaud the Soviet Constitution not that the earlier American version was any shakes when it came to liberty.
The Fourth of July is the same day in 1863 that the defeats at Vicksburg and Gettysburg snuffed out any hope of the South prevailing in its divorce proceedings during the Second American Revolution and the Lincolnian juggernaut would take the Constitution to its final stages of expanding and securing a place for the leviathan state in North America.
Happy Dependence Day, comrades. -BB
PREAMBLE to the 1977 Soviet Constitution slightly modified to American standards:
The Great November Democratic Revolution, made by the workers and peasants of United States under the leadership of the US Government headed by its Presidents, overthrew capitalist and landowner rule, broke the fetters of oppression, established the dictatorship of the voter, and created the American state, a new type of state, the basic instrument for defending the gains of the revolution and for building government intervention and democracy. Humanity thereby began the epoch-making turn from capitalist to government intervention.
After achieving victory in the elections and repulsing free market intervention, the American government carried through far-reaching social and economic transformations, and put an end once and for all to exploitation of man by man, antagonisms between classes, and strive between nationalities. The unification of the American Republics in the Union of American Democratic Republics multiplied the forces and opportunities of the peoples of the country in the building of government intervention. Social ownership of the means of production and genuine democracy for the working masses were established. For the first time in the history of mankind a democratic society was created.
