IN THE SAME SPIRIT AS OUR FOREFATHERS, who were the authors of the Declaration of Independence . . .

WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF-EVIDENT: - that all men are created by the Lord God; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, property, 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 to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute a new government, laying its foundations of 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 cause; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are 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.

The History of the Present Government – including the Executive, Legislative, Judicial, and the unelected and unconstitutional fourth branch of government, the bureaucracy – is a history of repeated injuring and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over the citizens.

The Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights as envisioned and structured by the founding fathers have been declared null and void by Acts of Congress, the bureaucracy, and the courts. Many courts have banned the reading of or any reference to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights in courtroom litigation. The courts are endorsing and supporting the unelected bureaucracies at virtually every level.

The courts have returned to the Star Chamber and have assumed a role of self-appointed sovereign supremacy and thus have become tyrannical and despotic in their actions by ignoring the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights while protecting themselves with a self-imposed cloak of so-called sovereign immunity. The courts have assumed a legislative role and are imposing upon the citizens "judicial legislation" based upon so-called "public policy" and "overriding government interest" that violates the very Constitution they have sworn to uphold. The Supreme Court of the United States has decreed that justice will be meted out in light of current public sentiment and without regard to Divine absolutes. The Supreme Court of the United States has assumed a self-imposed role of deity and authorized the murder of millions of babies by way of abortion since 1973. Citizens are forced to pay for the murder of babies by way of tax-funded abortion in violation of their religious convictions.

Citizens are forced to pay for a humanistic public educational system that is anti-God, anti-Christ, anti-Bible, anti-family, anti-American, and anti-Constitutional through taxation in violation of their religious convictions. Congress, legislatures, and the courts have combined with the bureaucracies to subject the citizens to a jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution and the Bill of Rights and unacknowledged by the founding fathers. Our government has formed a multitude of new bureaucratic offices that send swarms of officers across America to harass the citizens and eat out their substance. The bureaucrats have become a standing army that wages war against the citizens and invades the privacy and security of the citizens in their persons, houses, papers, effects, businesses, families, and religion. The coinage of gold and silver has been unlawfully suspended in violation of Article 1, Section 8, Clause 5, and Article 1, Section 10, Clause 1 of the Constitution of the United States by Executive Order, Acts of Congress, and Judicial Rulings; and the circulation medium of exchange has been replaced with irredeemable paper currency called Federal Reserve Notes. The monetary policy of America is controlled by a privately-owed, secretly-operated corporation: the Federal Reserve System. Government contrived and controlled inflation is destroying America and the hopes of our children and grandchildren of ever owning homes or land of their own. Taxes are imposed upon us without our consent. The oppressive boot of the communist-designed graduated income tax grinds more and more heavily on our necks and is destroying the producers of America. The Internal Revenue Service is enforcing social and public policy rules and regulations of its own design and formulation in violation of the Constitutional principle of separation of powers. The Internal Revenue Service regularly resorts to Gestapo-like tactics in the collection of "taxes"; this strategy has reduced the majority of our citizens to the fearful and whimpering state of common slaves. Churches have been unlawfully brought under the jurisdiction and control of government by Congress, the President, the Supreme Court of the United States, State Legislatures, and the unelected bureaucracies. Churches are required to have federal tax identification numbers and to collect and pay social security taxes in violation of their religious convictions. Congress, with few exceptions, has abdicated its Constitutional function by failing to guard against the erosion and destruction of the rights, privileges, and liberties of the citizens and by passing legislation that violates the letter and spirit of the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights.

In Every State of These Oppressions, we have warned time and time again of the unwarranted jurisdiction which these acts extend over us and have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms; our petitions have been answered only by a deaf ear and repeated injury.

Let It Be Known That We, the People, stand in recognition of the true principle that whenever a government abandons the purpose for which we have created it and even becomes hostile towards that which it was once a defender of, it is no longer a fit steward of the political power that is inherent in the people and lent to this government with strict conditions. These conditions are clearly defined in the United States Constitution and understood by the common man.

Furthermore, to the extent that our government violates these conditions, they nullify their own authority, at which point it is our right and duty, not as subjects but as sovereign Americans, to entrust this power to new stewards who will not depart from the laws we have given them.
This being the case, let it be known that should our government seek to further impose on our rights, thus impairing our ability to exercise our God-given rights which precedes all human legislation and is superior to it, that the duty of us good and faithful people will not be to obey them but to re-institute lawful government founded and organized to effect our safety and happiness.

Finally, For the Support of this Declaration, we mutually pledge to our God, to each other, and to our posterity: our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.
