Declaration of Independence for 2015….
The unanimous Declaration of liberty loving Americans
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind is more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of we the people of the USA; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the recent & present legislation, enforcement, and interpretations is a history of repeated unconstitutional injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these free citizens of the USA. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
Washington DC has repeatedly issued unconstitutional Laws, aided and abetted by executive and judicial branches. Supported by the media, institutions, and lobbyists.
Washington DC has burdened the people with unconstitutional and excessive rules, promulgated regulations and forms wasting citizens time, energy & resources.
Washington DC has favored lobbyists and special interests above the needs and protests of we the people.
Washington DC has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
Washington DC holds town meetings and gives the appearance of listening to we the people, but then passes laws contrary to common sense.
Washington DC has colluded with the press and long standing institutions to thwart truth, justice and the American way. In its place there is now polarization, injustice and globalization.
Washington DC has failed to protect her borders, enforce immigration laws, and address the peoples concern of this very lawlessness.
Washington DC failed to protect, defend and serve the Constitution; instead has created rights where none existed, then made laws against and infringed existing rights.
Washington DC has allowed judges and numerous officials to stay in service even when they have clearly abused Constitutional power & articles.
Washington DC has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.
Washington DC arms criminals and foreigners but continues to infringe the 2nd amendment.
Washington DC has coerced and admonished religious endeavors under the color of law and tolerance.
Washington DC has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For trade agreements NAFTA, GATT, and Pacific Rim that reward business to move to foreign countries, and penalize those who do not.
For protecting themselves, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders and crimes which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For restricting free and fair Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing excessive taxation, excessive debt, endless fees & forms:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by an informed Jury:
For undermining the jurisdictional process, and exacerbating due process;
For passing laws they don’t read, don’t understand, and selectively enforce:
For taking away our traditions, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For exempting themselves from these very acts of pretend legislation.
Washington DC has abdicated its election, monetary and economic constitutional mandates.
Washington DC has at this time allowed illegal aliens to enter and roam the country unchecked by failing to secure the borders and failing to enforce immigration laws. This has left the citizens in chaos, fear, and economic distress with no response.
Washington DC has constrained our fellow Citizens taken by a multitude of agencies that persecute citizens with impunity. NSA,IRS,FTC,EPA,CIA,ATF, NOAA, and the list is virtually endless.
Washington DC has excited domestic insurrections and polarization amongst us, and has endeavored to intimidate and exacerbate the inhabitants of our cities, suburbs and rural areas with swarms of illegal aliens, federal agents, and bureaucrats .
Washington DC has convoluted the Oath of office from: “I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of [title], and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
to: “I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of [title], and will to the best of my Ability, trash, trample, abuse and ignore the Constitution of the United States.”
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. Washington DC flaunts characteristics and acts which define a Tyrant, They are unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Liberal, progressive, and globalist brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature, social elites, and media elites to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction and polarization over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our Constitution, Liberties and prosperity here. We have appealed to their native justice and generosity, and we have conjoled them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these unconstitutional usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our freedoms, connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and reason. They continue to follow Saul Alinskys’ Rules for Radicals contrary to Constitutional restraints. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our corrupt two party, power usurping system and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in the pursuit of constitutional Freedom, and Friends in re-reinstatement of constitutional freedom.
Due to corruption or incompetence our current leaders at all levels have violated the warnings of history and our founding Fathers, there are thousands of unheeded warnings, here are but three:
“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy.” -Alexander Tyler
― Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers
“On every question of construction, [let us] carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of tying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” -Thomas Jefferson
We, therefore, the American Patriots, Sons of Liberty, and all like minded Citizens, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the honor and rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good and free People of these United Sates, solemnly publish and declare, That these United States are, and of Right ought to be Constitutionally Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all unconstitutional and global Allegiances of Federal Government, and that all unconstitutional connections between them and the Individual Free Citizens, is and ought to be Constitutionally Reconnected; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to ignore the 2-party power brokers and elect 3rd party and true constitutional leaders, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, re-establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent Constitutional Free States may of right do.
Finally to effect these changes it must be done at the ballot box. All incumbents of three or more terms of tenure must be voted out of office. An inexperienced new representative will be better than the current representatives who have their finger prints all over our $19-Trillion dollar and rising debt, and truck loads of self-serving unconstitutional laws. (that need to be abolished and stricken from active record)
We the People and Citizen Oath:
I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
