Since Dec 5, 1997
The only amendment required to return control of our government back to the people.
Amendment XXVIII (28th.)
The government of the people, and by the people, shall not write or allow any law, directive, or regulation that shall cause, or require , any citizen or entity to purchase or utilize the products, methods, or services of any entity or individual.

Born in the 40's, grew up in the 50's and lived in the America we (the older ones) once knew.
The real world according to DH:
A needed amendment to the Constitution.
Stop and think about how many professions, jobs and services we pay for each year that exist solely upon a government regulation or law. For example...accountants and tax preparers, manufacturers of safety belts......the list goes on and on and on.
Have you been robbed lately?
Insurance: Being robbed on the installment plan.
Have you ever stopped to think that without medical insurance, medical costs would generally be affordable. If we did not have liability insurance most in the legal profession would be out of a job.
Insurance is the cause of out of control costs. It's called "deep pockets" and is the flame that the moth is drawn to every time. No matter how much the outlay, increased premiums cover the cost....and with a profit margin to boot! The robbery just goes in a big circle.
Who ever thought these words of wisdom would come back to haunt us?
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largess from the public treasury. From that time on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. -- Alexander Fraser Tytler 18th century Historian and Jurist.

New preamble to the constitution
The following has been attributed
to Lewis Napper, a Jackson, Mississippi computer programmer.
'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.
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.'
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.
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 dummies, and
probably always will be.
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
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.
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.
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 get the blue juice.
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..
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.
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.
This is an English speaking country. We don't care where you
came from, English is our language. Learn it!
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, sorry if you are uncomfortable with it.
