Too Late to Apologize - the Declaration

If you know the original song by One Republic featuring Timbaland, then you will find this video hysterical, addictive, fabulous, inspiring, entrancing, oh did I mention addictive? If you don't know the original song, you'll still love it.

First, the original. I recommend watching this first if you have the time. It will make the parody much better.




And now for the parody. Enjoy.

  4. Though I agree with the concepts in the declaration of independence, the history has been distorted to misrepresent varying views of the time as well as the actions of the American generals. Many people were forced to join the army without pay even though they wanted nothing to do with the war. When they revolted, or tried to leave, they were often killed to set an example. George Washington personally ordered the hanging of many "traitors." Only about 50% of the American population actually wanted to secede. Of those that wanted to secede, only a fraction wanted to go to war to secede.

    Before the revolution, taxes were low and independence was high. Since the revolution, the constitution was written with the commerce clause and general welfare clause that has allowed the government to grow to the biggest in the history of mankind. The point was to limit government. The revolution was a failure. If the US didn't revolt, it would have ended up like Canada or Australia. That's not so bad. People didn't have to die. Now America is like the empire they wanted to leave.

    The main things to learn from the revolution are the concepts of nullification, secession, and civil disobedience. Such concepts are the only way to effectively keep a government in check. Those are the most "American" behaviors any person can partake in. If humans are actually free, they have the right to be free from all government, including any type of direct taxation. I say direct because even if you are not taxed, you may still pay an indirect tax if a business you buy goods from decided to enter into a governing association where they are taxed. Then the goods you buy would be more expensive than they would have otherwise been, so the tax is not directly levied but it still affects you.

  5. Same comment as above about the teat. What a terrible song, musically and lyrically. Catchy and thin. Is that why it goes so well with the "parody"?

    As a parody, is the video maker making fun at the song or the constitution? Because the song is so bad, musically and lyrically, it's hard to discern if the video isn't mocking our constitution rather than your implication of the democrat party.

    What also does it say that this video came from a company out of the south? Could resentment toward the constitution still be "brewing" from these southerners?

    I guess mine is just another way to look at this video.
