LEWIS NAPPER’S “BILL OF NO RIGHTS”…

Posted on March 22, 2010. Filed under: Facts / History / Nostalgia..., Informational..., News And Politics..., Politics... | Tags: |

 
This very astute take on the “Bill Of Rights” was supposedly written by Georgia State Representative Mitchell Kaye (R), which is not true.  Of course, he didn’t take credit for writing this, and set the record straight.  The real author of this “Bill Of No Rights” was written in 1993 by Lewis Napper, a self-described amateur philosopher from Mississippi who ran for a U.S. Senate seat in 2000 as a Libertarian. 
 
I’d like to add that on July 19, 2000, advice columnist Ann Landers published a more “politically-correct” version of this piece, attributing it incorrectly to Kaye.  Not only did she get the author wrong, she conveniently left out the points about free health care and sending troops to fight in foreign wars, and praised Kaye’s “tough ‘do-it-yourself’ position” and declared the language he used to convey his message  as “delicious”.  With all due respect to Ms. Landers, as she calls herself in print, if she took the time to research this piece as any reputable newspaper columnist would, she would have gotten the author’s name correct and she would have praised the right person.  Leave it to a Liberal columnist to jump to conclusions and print only what they want people to know.
 
Napper’s words ring even truer today as a sense of entitlement escalates in our society with more and more people thinking that the world owes them an education, food, a home and health care…

e, the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid any 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 and other liberal, bedwetters.

We hold these truths to be self-evident: that a whole lot of people were confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim that they require a Bill of No Rights.

ARTICLE I

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.

ARTICLE II

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 idiots, and probably always will be.

ARTICLE III

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 wealthy.

ARTICLE IV

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.

ARTICLE V

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.

ARTICLE VI

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 fry in the electric chair.

ARTICLE VII

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.

ARTICLE VIII

You don’t have the right to demand that our children risk their lives in foreign wars to soothe your aching conscience. We hate oppressive governments and won’t lift a finger to stop you from going to fight if you’d like. However, we do not enjoy parenting the entire world and do not want to spend so much of our time battling each and every little tyrant with a military uniform and a funny hat.

ARTICLE IX

You don’t have the right to a job. All of us sure want all of you to have one, 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.

ARTICLE X

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.”
