IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, SEPTEMBER 20, 2012.
The majority Declaration of the Citizens of the United States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for a the freedom loving citizens of a nation to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with their elected President, and to renounce among the powers of the earth, the authority to which said President is entitled, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to their action.
We hold these truths to continue 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, and limiting those powers in a unanimously adopted Constitution. So whenever any Agent or Agents of said Government becomes destructive of these ends or violates the Constitutionally imposed limitations, it is the Right of the People to terminate or recall said Agent(s), and to appoint new Agent(s), laying their directive on such principles established by the Constitution which limits their powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Government Agents 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 Agent evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to terminate the tenure of such Agent, and to appoint a new Agent who will govern according to the precepts of the Constitution.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Citizens; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to terminate their Agent, the President. The history of the present President is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct motivation the desire to establish an absolute Tyranny over these Citizens. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to the Constitution, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has obstructed State Governments from passing Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has endeavored to pass other Laws for the subjugation of large districts of people, compelling those people to purchase whatever goods or services he deems appropriate, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has ignored and obstructed Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, acknowledgement of a grievous threat to our National Security and has attempted on the alternative to mollify the threat with apologies of our existence and or our rights; the United States remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavored to prevent the lawful Citizens of these States; from exercising adequate measures of control and due process on lawful immigration and instead contends himself with the lawless exploitation of our sovereign borders with all manner of criminals and parasites all to the furtherance of his selfish political aspirations.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to enforce Laws that have been deemed enforceable and Constitutional by the Judiciary.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, Rules and Regulations, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, eat out their substance, and deprive them of good and righteous employment in a free enterprise market system.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, instruments of domestic surveillance as a device to further monitor and subjugate the Citizenry.
He has affected to render the Military impotent and inadequate to the needs of our defense.
He has combined with others through bribery and treachery to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended and unconstitutional Legislation or by Unlawful Fiat:
For protecting his sub-agents, through assertion of executive privilege, from punishment for any Murders and other Transgressions which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Domestic supply of Energy Resources.
For imposing clandestine Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of our sacred Bill of Rights:
For supporting in foreign lands, governments and insurrection opposed to our existence as a free and Independent nation.
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Rights, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Government, Society, and Economic System.
For suspending enforcement of the product of our own Legislatures, and declaring himself invested with power to legislate for us by selective enforcement in all cases whatsoever.
He is at this time ignoring large Armies of foreign Extremists who strive to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages.
He has constrained and frustrated our allies from advancement of actions which are utmost to their own self-preservation and survival.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to put asunder various factions of the Citizenry in an effort to benefit his own self-preservation and political ascendency.
He has devastated the national currency by relentless and imprudent expenditures of every kind to such extent that our Citizenry shall be enslaved to Economic Servitude for Generations to come.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in manners specified by our Constitution: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A President whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the chief executive of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our chief executive. We have warned him from time to time of his attempts to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded him of the circumstances of our Rights and Freedoms enumerated in our Constitution and Bill of Rights.. We have appealed to his native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured him by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our Rights and Freedoms.
We, therefore, the Citizens of the united States of America, in General Consensus, 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 absolved from the contract with the current President and do hereby intend to elect a successor President who we trust to govern in better concert with the will of the People. 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.
I LIKE it!!
Kudos....... It should be plastered from sea to shining sea.
Welcome to FR
I LIKE it!
What do you suppose would happen if EVERYBODY, were to mail this to the White House, by snail mail?
And, for the record, in case this website gets suddenly to be in a “404 Error” mode, I hope you don’t mind, with author’s reference, I’m printing this, to inscribe into my pen and ink journal, so that “Big Sis - Janet The 2nd”, would have to make the trip, and enter through my “previously swiss-cheesed door”, just to read it.
Bravo but a bit redundant. There is a mechanism in place, left to us by The Founders in the event a government ‘’becomes destructive of these ends’’(i.e “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness’’). It’s called The Second Amendment. Heaven preserve us it ever needing to be resorted to but by God, they didn’t leave it to us for the sake of just filling up space on a piece of paper. The day may be coming....
Thanks. I added your New Declaration to my site. See links:
