Re-Declaration of Independence

July 4, 2016

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 position 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 the People of the United States of America hold these truths to be self-evident, that ALL individuals are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Natural Rights (that among these are Life, Liberty, Property, and the pursuit of Happiness — for ALL).  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 Natural Right of the People to alter or 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 has shown that mankind is more inclined 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 Goal, gives evidence of 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 United States of America; and such is now the necessity which compels them to alter their current corrupted system of government.  The history of the US Federal, State, and Local Government is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over the People.  To prove this, let Facts regarding these grievances be submitted to a candid world.

It has failed to honor and protect the Unalienable Natural Rights of the Individual by passing acts that usurp these Rights which are protected by and guaranteed in the Bill of Rights.  These usurpations include transgressions of the Right: to Freedom of Religion, Speech/Expression, Philosophy, Education, Healthcare, and Mobility; of Parental Authority; of Life, Peace, and Self-Defense; to Free Market Commerce and Private Contract; to Property; of Self-Defense from Fraud; of Privacy; to Civil Rights which Secure Natural Rights (Expedient Habeas Corpus by a Fully Informed Peer Jury, Remedy of Grievances, Fair and Transparent Election System).

It has debased our national economic wealth through the irresponsible use of fiat currency, and has used public money to subsidize private businesses and corporations, thus fostering a socialist and fascist corporate welfare state.

It has abdicated the responsibility of maintaining a sound currency by illegally turning this authority over to a private bank, known as The Federal Reserve, and has also shielded it from public and government oversight.

It has recklessly created a massive national debt with no ability to repay it -- this debt will likely result in the destruction of the currency and all private savings along with it.

It has created a system of taxation that invades individual privacy, punishes success, rewards sloth, and promotes a runaway federal bureaucracy which is destroying our economy.

It has failed to restrict itself to the limited and enumerated powers delegated to it by We the People, through the U.S. Constitution, as the Founders and Framers intended.  In doing so it has usurped the Sovereignty of the individual States and the Natural Rights of the People.

It has imperiled our armed services, our treasury and our national security to various un-Constitutional wars, based on deception and intrigue, and designed without regard to reasonable victory conditions.  It has been warned of "foreign entanglements" and the threat of a "military industrial complex" by past U.S. administrations dating back to America's origin, yet it squanders our blood and treasure through nation building and globalist agendas.

It has trespassed upon the very sovereignty of this great nation by following the dictates of international bodies, like the United Nations and other extra-national organizations.  It has established guidelines and has made un-Constitutional agreements to proceed with what may become a North American Union between the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.  This new union could, should it become reality, subordinate our nation and its governance to a foreign legal jurisdiction.

It has usurped the authority of parents within the American family through a Federally controlled Public Education System that continues to enact legislative mandates which usurp the Sovereignty of the States, the Rights of the People, and undermines the proper education of our children.

It has continued in its attempts to usurp and control most aspects of Health Freedom.  This includes traditional and alternative health care, as well as our food and medicine.  It is now planning the complete take over of our remaining health freedoms by creating a socialist health care system that will literally decide who lives and who dies.

In every stage of these Oppressions We the People of the United States of America have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms; our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.  A Ruling Class whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Collectivist Tyranny, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Therefore, We the People of the United States of America again Declare our Independence from tyranny and oppression by the enemies of Liberty, both foreign and domestic; And that, as free and independent People, we have just power to mandate that all government within this Nation be limited to only those actions of Civil Law which honor and protect the Unalienable Natural Rights of the Individual in accordance with Natural Law; And for the support of this Re-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.

Fellow Americans, let us no longer allow foreign and domestic tyrants to stifle Liberty -- LET FREEDOM RING!
