Barack Obama's Declaration of Dependence by Pamela Meister

I read this bit of satire below I had a good chuckle but the more I think about it....I'm not sure I shouldn't have been crying.

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one Messiah to dissolve the historic bonds that have connected his subjects with the fundamental beliefs of a bunch of dead white guys, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of Marx entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that I should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

I hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men, womyn, transgendered and questioning individuals deserve equal division of goods, that they are endowed by Me with certain unalienable rights, that among these are the right to abort life, servitude to the state, and the pursuit of taxpayer-supported benefits. That to secure these rights, government is instituted in Me, deriving my just powers from the consent of a Democrat Congress, ACORN, and Universal Voluntary Public Service. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of Me to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Big Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing (with the help of the groups previously named) My powers in such form, as to Me shall seem most likely to effect My subjects' safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that My government short established should be changed for causes I deem appropriate; and accordingly all my inexperience hath shown that personkind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the oppressive regime instituted by dead white men to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce my subjects under absolute Evil Capitalism, it is My right, it is My duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future Social Security. - Such has been the patient sufferance of these downtrodden victims of Evil Capitalists; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. This history of the present Representative Republic is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute freedom for these victims. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a slavering mainstream media.

This Representative Republic was founded on the principles of limited government, and does not allow Me to make all decisions without impunity.

This Representative Republic allows for too many States' rights.

This Representative Republic allows Me to serve only two terms in the highest office in the land.

This Representative Republic allows for too much personal freedom, assuming that individuals know best how to spend the money that they earn and how best to live their lives.

This Representative Republic allows for the free market, not all-knowing bureaucrats, to right any wrongs in the economy.

This Representative Republic expects judges to uphold, not enact, law.

This Representative Republic allows private citizens to own firearms, thus allowing them to protect themselves and their family from all intrusions (including those from government).

This Representative Republic does not guarantee electoral outcomes for any one particular party - namely, My party.

This Representative Republic guarantees citizens equality before the law - not social justice as defined by activist judges and legislators.

In every stage of these oppressions, I have petitioned for redress in the least humble terms: My repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Representative Republic, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define oppressive Evil Capitalism, is unfit to be the government of a people yearning for Hope and Change.

Nor have I been wanting in attention to my Global Citizen brethren. I have warned them from time to time of their attempts by their elected leaders to follow in the footsteps of the United States. I have reminded them of the circumstances of America's many mistakes. I have appealed to their systems of justice and social programs, which I hope to emulate. I have also appealed to our enemies, as I have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow the usurpations of America, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. I must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces America's sovereignty, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, superiors in war, in peace superiors.

I, therefore, the Messiah of the United States of America, acting of my own volition, appealing to Myself for the rectitude of my intentions, do, in the name, and by the authority of Myself, solemnly publish and declare that the United States ought to be dependent states; that they are absolved from the Tenth Amendment, and that all political connection between them and the Federal Government, is and ought to be of a dependent nature; and that as subservient and dependent states and citizens thereof, they have no power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, or do any other acts and things without express permission from Federal Government thus represented by Me. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of the Nanny State, I pledge to oversee your lives, your fortunes, and what is left of your sacred honor.

I wish she hadn't given him this idea, because he just might adopt it, and soon.

There are some Obama zealots who will read that and seriously want that as the new Declaration.

I am shaking my head because that is pretty much how Obama is acting now....

Fear of a black planet.

By negroes no less.

Sad.

MuscleDaddy said...

UTS,.

Satire though it is - it plainly describes National Socialism under a single, all-powerful 'Dear Leader'.

Since this is clearly what is 'feared', am I to understand that this is also your definition of a "Black Planet"?

P.S. - Here, let me start your reply for you: "DOES THIS IDIOT/RACIST/NAZI ACTUALLY.." - go ahead and add on from there.

Yes, it appears this satire is an attempt to forward the intellectually fraudulent fiction that Barack Obama is a socialist. There we agree. Since that’s all we’ve been hearing from the GOP and the sycophants who call themselves “conservative blacks” for the last 4 months or so. Comrade Barry scare tactic. Tovarisch, человек, убежденный против воли, остается при своем мнении.

В то время как это верно, я говорил: Характер состоит в том то, что Вы говорите, без времени, чтобы думать.

Комментарий плохо считал - но это разгласило больше.

MuscleDaddy said...

История человека и существующих действий показывает Социализм - Вы просто отказываетесь видеть это.

DJ Black Adam said...

@MD:

Well it is my opinion, члены обеих партий осадить унизить.

That is where you an I disagree, as you seem to only be able to take ought with the left, Tovarisch.

THE HISTORY? Oh come on, what has Barack done in the Senate of Illinois or his time as the Junior Senator from Illinois, or his 100+ days as presidecny that say "Социализм"? Действительно, Вы преувеличиваете, чтобы увеличить страх.

This bears repeating MD:

"История человека и существующих действий показывает Социализм - Вы просто отказываетесь видеть это."Translation:

The history of the person and existing actions shows Socialism - you simply refuse to see it.

MuscleDaddy said...

Как я преувеличиваю в цитировании исторической речи?

Enough Russian! This would be fun @ home - at work, it's too much hassle to keep switching my keyboard back-and-forth!

If I gathered links and references to transcripts and recordings, would you read/listen-to them?

What's the deal w/ the "what will it take" post - it appears in my 'reading list' but the page doesn't seem to actually exist...

I accidently published it before I was finished writing it. So now it's just in draft form. I'll work on it over the weekend.

DJ Black Adam said...

@CBW:

Могло быть лучше, что мы говорим, мы говорим на русском языке?

Seems like the trouble of translating, makes people stick to th point and not get to all the unnecessary drama?

I actually have a new found respect for Muscle Daddy, either he knows some Russian or he uses those translators VERY well. His grammar was impeccable.

Very rarely do I find a commoner with such resourcefullness..... :-)

Seriously, give me some proof of the Socialism, I hav ebeen i nChicago with Barack for MANY years, never heard that the man was red army material...

MuscleDaddy said...

Thanks - I grew up with Russian-speaking grandparents - just started applying myself back to a conversational level over the past couple of years.

I shall endeavor to gather the aforementioned references - I'll email them straight to you.
