Declaration of Independence 2.0 sign now

November 6, 2009 The Declaration of the united People 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 shewn 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 these Citizens; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present Federal Government 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.
The Federal Government has refused Assent to Laws, respecting the right to life of the unborn who are among the most vulnerable in our society.
The Federal Government has refused to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance such as necessary to halt the nazi-like experimentation on unborn human embryos thus ignoring the dignity to which all human beings are entitled as having been created in God's image.
The Federal Government has refused to pass Laws identifying God and His commands as the source of all governmental authority and specifically identifying and honoring our Christian heritage.
The Federal Government has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of breaking the bonds of aristocratic monopolistic holds on fuel sources such as oil and thereby has enslaved us to dependence on foreign oil when we have enormous supplies here and we should all be receiving very inexpensive fuel.
The Federal Government has made it almost impossible and unattractive for citizens to run for election by creating an expensive, complicated and intrusive election process for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with The Federal Government's measures.
The Federal Government has repeatedly persecuted citizens for opposing its invasions on the rights of the people.
The Federal Government has refused to protect the borders which is one of the few legitimate activities of The Federal Government, the States remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

The Federal Government has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing to Assent to Laws regulating the Judiciary by requiring strict construction of our constitution in order to limit the power of government in every conceivable manner.
The Federal Government has made Judges dependent on its political will and has encouraged them to make new laws outside the proper legislative process and therefore without the people's consent and without representation for the tenure of their offices, and has set the amount and payment of their salaries without the people's consent.
The Federal Government has erected a multitude of New Offices, expensive, inefficient and intrusive Administrative Agencies which represent a fourth branch of government that does not answer to the people, and sent hither swarms of Officers (such as Internal Revenue Service Agents, and other Regulatory Agents) to harass our people, eat out their substance and take their property.
The Federal Government to intimidate the People has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
The Federal Government has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.
The Federal Government has combined with others to subject us to jurisdictions foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws such as the United Nations, China to whom we have been placed under crushing debt, and enemies of our state and way of life but from whom we are beholden for oil; giving Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For quartering large bodies of police officers, other government agents and armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off and severely hindering our ability to do business and to trade with all parts of the world by creating stifling bureaucracies (such as customs and the IRS), taxes, mandating wage levels, over-regulating all manners of business :
For imposing Taxes, Fees, Tariffs on us without our Consent:
For depriving us of justice by creating an imbalance favoring the government in many cases, and persecuting us and unjustly holding poor citizens before trial and extorting guilty pleas from them when they cannot afford to buy their liberty before trial because they cannot afford the bond and the next court date is beyond the sentence offered by the government and by charging us with pretended offenses in order to control us:
For abolishing the free System of laws and thereby establishing therein an Arbitrary and overreaching federal government, which has all but eradicating the tenth amendment to the federal constitution and states' sovereignty and enlarging the federal government's Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these sovereign states:
For taking away our Charters, constitutions and abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Republican Foundational Forms of our Governments:
For over-riding our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
The Federal Government has abdicated authority by abusing us, taking our property, over-taxing us, over-regulating us and waging War by sending upon us its agents such as the IRS, Secret Service, EPA, Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms and Tobacco, and all the oppressive regulatory and administrative agencies for the purposes of forcing us into submission and oppressing us as tax-serfs and tax-slaves and to compleat 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 Head of a civilized nation.
The Federal Government has plundered our businesses, our savings, our profits, our homes, our commerce, burnt towns, and destroyed the lives of many of our people.
The Federal Government has employed our fellow Citizens to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
Domestic insurrections are simmering amongst us. Yet the Federal Government refuses to listen in its arrogance.
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 Prince, or President or Judge or Legislator whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
We have appealed to the native justice and magnanimity common in all people, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common heritage 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 people and citizens of the united States of America, in General Assembly, 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 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 Federal Government, and that all political connection between them and the Federal Government of the United States of America, 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.
