The political version of the 10 Commandments

Marilyn Steffen notes that a number of the 10 Commandments have been rewritten in practice:

New Commandments:

1. You shall have no other gods before me unless the politicians promise to care for you from cradle to grave and then you can worship them.
2. You shall not make for yourself a graven image unless you choose the politicians as gods.
5. Honor your father and your mother unless the bureaucrats in the government schools brainwash you to believe your parents are stupid, incompetent and no good.
6. You shall not kill except when your political leaders take you down the same road Nazi Germany chose.
8. You shall not steal unless you vote for politicians who will send a bureaucrat (IRS agent) with a gun to steal from your neighbors to fund your pet projects.
9. You shall not bear false witness unless you are doing "good".
10. You shall not covet your neighbors property unless the politicians promote covetousness and envy.
