Enough! I am tired of the class identity politics of the progressive socialist Democrats and hereby propose the following legislation…

In furtherance of preserving, protecting, and defending the United States Constitution, specifically the equities arising from the textual context of Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment which is known as the "Equal Protection Clause" and which states, "No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." the following legislation is proposed.

Americans with Delusions Act.

The following declaration shall be included and appended to all government forms that require declarations, under the penalty of perjury, of any characteristic describing a citizen of the United States.

I, the undersigned, recognize the U.S. Constitution and that no individual should be treated differently than any other individual under the law.

I, the undersigned, herein exert my right to self-identify with respect to any physical characteristics described and protected under existing law.

I hereby waive any right, claim, privilege, or benefit conferred under any local. state, or federal law or administrative rule, past, present, or future, to the extent that any required information I provide materially differs from information informed by physical reality.

Exception: This Act does not apply to illegal aliens who are not lawfully resident in the United States.

Bottom line…

The American with Delusions Act would allow you to stand in a garage and self-declare yourself to be a vehicle but would prevent you from receiving a tax deduction from any declared mileage or maintenance expenses. Likewise, you can self-declare yourself to be Gender #342 on Thursday without being able to claim that you are a member of a statutorily “protected class,” and being terminated by your employer is an act of discrimination that demands the employer be fined or further punished under the law.

The fact that the Americans with Delusions Act makes sense in today’s political and legal environment is the precise degree to which we have been screwed.
