OUR NEW DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the
established authorities are wrong. (Voltaire 1694 – 1778)
[and it still is!]
keeping the text of the original declaration in tact as much as possible to show that it rings as true today as it did in 1776.
Alterations have been italicized and a modest callout of examples furnished. This document is presented to support the second American Revolution, "The Constitutional Revolution".
"The Constitutional Revolution". Organized and orchestrated by "The Constitutional Guard". Promising to be as deliberate and dedicated as the patriots that established our founding revolution, but withholding the violence. Education, information and knowledge shall be the ammunition. The courage and wisdom of our founders will be the weapons of choice. As in the first Revolution, a large number of Patriots will be asked to sacrifice, endure and dream of the future for their children. All while encouraging other Patriots to join “The Guard”, to ratify and present this declaration.
Consider this declaration to be the shot heard around “The Hill” and a call to duty of all true American patriots. Volume 1 Issue 1, “The Declaration”. We will operate within the ideals of our founding Constitution, breaking no real laws while preserving life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and restoring the possibility of prosperity for all.
Future articles will deal with methods of implementation, merits of this declaration, the tax code, constitutional amendments, property rights, reading material etc. We are about to embark on a dangerous journey, as a Patriot one may receive a countless number of lashes from friend and foe alike, be prepared. To set the magnitude of your participation read the final paragraph of the Declaration first then again in proper sequence.
“Patriots,” let us begin!!
AMONG THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, JULY 4, 2013
The Updated Declaration of Independence - United States of America
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
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 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. — Such has been the patient sufferance of the American people; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former System of Government. The history of the present Administration and of former Administrations of many decades is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
Government has refused Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and
necessary for the public good.
(e.g. passing laws that retroactively protect the illegal actions of their members and their instruments used to circumvent the Constitution, rights, freedom, liberties and long established laws of the American people)
Government has forbidden Governors to pass Laws of immediate
and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till
Governments Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended,
Government has utterly neglected to attend to them.
(E.g. voter identification laws, laws that protect individual states from foreign invasion)
Government has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, while those people remain in a lawless state and undermine the Constitution, economic tranquility and the ideals of our Constitutional Republic. Relinquishing the right of Representation in the Legislature of legal citizens, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
Government has called together legislative bodies in secret, at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, and unattainable to the general populous for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with its measures.
Government has dissolved Representative republican due diligence repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness its invasions on the rights of the people.
Government has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
Government has endeavored to prevent the legal population of these States; for the purpose of obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their legal migration hither, and encouraging the conditions of new Appropriations of people disarmed of our constitution.
Government has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing its Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers. (E.g. consolidation of power to the executive branch)
Government has made Judges dependent on its Will alone for they’re approach to long standing laws of sovereignty, both political and human in nature. (E.g. executive orders rendered as law)
Government has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and separate them from their due rights and liberties.
Government has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures. (E.g. drones, secret departments and throngs of technicians armed with advanced methods of entering the private lives of law-abiding citizens)
Government has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power. (E.g. in both domestic and foreign campaigns without consent of the citizens)
Government has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving its Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: (e.g. United Nations etc.)
For seating large bodies of armed officials among us, rendering light infractions to major crimes and acts of treason and other high crimes of the Government and their instruments justifiable:
For protecting Government and their operatives, by mock Trials and investigations from punishment for any Murders or other high crimes which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our lucrative and equal Trade with all parts of the world: (e.g. NAFTA, FTA, etc.)
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent or equal and just representation:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury or due diligence:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be questioned and tortured for pretended offences:
For abolishing the free System of self government of, by, and for the sovereign citizens, establishing therein an Arbitrary and absolute government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render the Constitution an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these states:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments under our Constitution:
Government has abdicated itself here, by declaring us out of its Protection and waging War against us.
Government has plundered our property, ravaged our assets, circumvented our laws, and destroyed the lives of our people both socially and economically as well as our right to privacy.
Government is at this time entering into agreements to transport large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the guiding Principal of a civilized nation.
Government has constrained our fellow Citizen’s right to representation by continually diluting the power of casting ballots of choice through deceptive, manipulative and lucrative means. Having set armed agents at polls to insure the casting of unregistered and undocumented ballots while adjusting requirements to cast such ballots to unacceptable levels:
Government has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the various racial, ethnic and religious inhabitants of our nation, in the undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
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. A Government, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define Tyranny, is unfit to be the ruling body of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our government. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the legal citizens of the united States of America, in general agreement In order to restore our Constitutional Republic to the confines of our original Constitution, Assembled by signature, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these united States, solemnly publish and declare, That these united States are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the standing representation of a Constitutional Republic, and that all political connection between them and the current state of our governing body, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
