…”if you don’t,who will???”…


I saw this in an email this mornin’ & thought it rather interestin’….BG>

New Preamble to the Constitution.

This is probably the best e-mail I’ve seen in a long time. The following

has been attributed to Lewis Napper, a Jackson, Mississippi computer

programmer. He didn’t expect his essay — a tart 10-point list of

“rights” Americans don’t have — to become an Internet legend.

‘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 independently



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.

If you agree share this with a friend. No, you don’t have to and nothing

tragic will befall you if you don’t. I just think it’s about time common

sense should be allowed to flourish. Sensible people of the United

States must speak out because if you don’t,who will???
