"Amen to what the jury decided," crowed the prosecuting attorney. "We just won one whopper of a case! There are six billion people who have suffered enormously from the ideas of limited government, personal freedom, and private property. We hope that this award will go a long way to restoring the world to theocracies, military dictatorships, and of course, socialist revolution!"
The award, to be administered by the United Nations, will be distributed based on need. A UN spokesperson explained that "those who do not need money should not have any money." She added that the lion's share of the award would go to Latin America, "as that's where we feel there's the most imminent need of restoring anti-capitalist nations."
She pointed out that "large amounts are also earmarked for the formerly suppressed political parties of Europe like Communists and Nazis, who have been huge victims of the hurtful ideas in the Constitution." The spokesperson also indicated that Islamic theocracies would not be receiving as much, since "they have apparently not been affected by the ideas in the Constitution."
Reactions across America are largely positive. Coming on the heels of surveys indicating that large majorities of Americans say they are at fault for the world's problems, many see this verdict as cleansing. There's also a practical aspect, as articulated by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi: "As arithmetic was never my strength, it will be so much easier to write one big check to the United Nations than to figure out who gets what this year."
She continued, "My only concern is that the American people are also victims of the Constitution, and should not have to pay the bill. I will therefore introduce legislation that will make the five richest Americans liable for the first $1,000 billion and Wal-Mart liable for the other $1,000 billion."
Senator Hillary Clinton begged to differ. In a thunderous presidential voice she intoned, "This will be an opportunity to double taxes on all Americans. That will pay the award and maintain our valuable government services, whatever they are. To do otherwise would be wrong." Observers indicated that this was the 118th consecutive speech in which Senator Clinton vowed to combat something that she defined as being "wrong."
The verdict also includes the revocation of the Constitution and its replacement with the Federal Register "so that the number of laws can be theoretically limitless." The verdict also specifies "goals and timetables" to increase the number of lawyers by five-fold, with the American Bar Association receiving a special award for "unspecified suffering."
The trial itself was a model of thoughtful efficiency. After arguments were presented, the jurors deliberated for a full ten minutes before returning a "guilty" verdict. The foreman, when approached for how the jury reached its decision, replied, "This was so cool! I was on a jury!"
We believe it best to adopt a multi-culturalists diversity type of document.
We will take the suggestions from the UN member-nations (but reserve option to ignore any input from the reactionary right-winger John Bolton), EU, PRC, Cuba, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and of course from nations which prefer the shariya based legal system.
A majority of Americans will most likely complain - about the loss of what they falsely believe are so-called "inalienable rights" but we don't really care (psst: majority-shmority -their ignorant opinions don't count anyway). We know what is best for them.
Besides - they won't have to be bothered with voting for elected representatives - so they will probablly be thanking us because they will not need to take off from work and stand around in lines all day to vote or be traumatized by disenfanchisement for voting more than once in the same election.
Surely the <<bien pensants>> will have no objections to Europe assuming their fair share of the blame, and the bill.
We will name this the Rouge Revolution.
Comrade Lenin would be so happy that finally - after 100 years of progressive politics - we have finally progressed.
