The Constitution is now on sale for 50% off — get yours today!
In perhaps the very definition of irony, the U.S. Government Printing Office is now offering the Constitution of the United States of America for half off. In fact, you too can own your very own copy of law of our land for a measly $1.50.
While this sale is a good deal, it’s not very far off the reality mark.
Everything Must Go
The First Amendment has essentially been gutted with the introduction of so-called free speech zones, the Trespass Bill that says we can’t protest anywhere in or near a Secret Service-protected government area or official (even if we don’t realize we’re doing it), and over zealous police arresting people for the non-crime of taping them.
The Sandy Hook school massacre and President Obama’s reelection have been a double kick to the Second Amendment, with states everywhere rushing to pass anti-gun legislation that would make our founding fathers roll in their graves.
The Patriot Act eviscerated the Fourth Amendment, and Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration goon squad has continued to molest its remains in airports and at major events across the country ever since.
The Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Amendments were chewed up and spit out by the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which says any citizen merely suspected of terrorism can be disappeared and indefinitely detained without anything even close to resembling due process.
Our president and merry band of puppet politicians act like they all completely forgot the Tenth Amendment — you know, the one explicitly limiting federal power only to what’s written in the Constitution — ever existed in the first place.
And the list of injustices goes on and on and on. The one document that has set our republic apart from the rest of the world for more than two centuries is openly treated like a joke by our government — and now they apparently feel it’s not even worth the price of the paper it’s printed on.
