Spooky, yes. Very Damn Spooky Indeed.
And just in time for Independence Day.
Below the fold, a slightly modified transcript. I’ve corrected a couple of minor typos, some of which may have been intentional reproductions of the original archaic language.
I also tried to smooth over a particularly infelicitous phrase; editing
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally and ‘Change’ the Forms of our Government.
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and endeavoring fundamentally to ‘Change’ the Forms of our Government.
I am not a great typist, so I’m sure other errors of my own have crept in; my apologies, and I’ll fix them as I find them.
As to the intent: things aren’t quite this bad yet, and much of this damage has been done by prior administrations. It cannot remotely all be laid at Obama’s feet; although he committed most of the particulars herein, he is merely closing the door on a tyrannical jail that has been slowly building around us since the Depression.
Most of all, though, it is not for us to secede or even rebel this time — It’s our country, and we mean to take it back. Rather, we should seek only to throw Obama and his fellow usurpers out, and prune our laws and our taxes back into something which can arguably be said to not stretch the Constitution, flawed as it is, to tatters and vapours. And that will, my people, indeed require us to pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honors.
[Un-earned] Self-esteem and the high regard of [tyrants around] the world at large be damned.
