The Declaration of Common Sense
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 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 some form, to affect their Safety and Happiness. Common Sense, must dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and temporary causes. But when a long train of abuses and confiscations, 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 50 States; and is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present day United States Government is a history of repeated injuries and seizure, all having direct connection to the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these United States.
To prove this, let Facts be submitted to an open world:
They have refused to make Laws which are wholesome and necessary for the public good, And to secure our borders.
They have denied the will of the people and passed Laws deemed necessary only to the elite and totally ignored the masses of all the law abiding citizens.
They have called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
They have disregarded the basic rights of the people, who in opposition of their agendas, with threats of using governmental agencies like the IRS, Treasury, FBI, TSA, ATF and others, to force their views upon law abiding citizens.
They have lied to America for many decades about the truth on everything; while the Senate, the House of Representatives and the Supreme Court are incapable of being Accountable and have themselves turned against the People by allowing the dangers of Invasion from without and Tyranny from within.
They have jeopardized the population of all the States by not securing the Borders; for not enforcing the Federal Laws dealing with Illegal Immigration; refusing to pass others to discourage their migrations here and not providing for our common defense.
They have given or allowed Federal Judges and Supreme Court Justices Life-Time appointments with no accountability to the Will of the People.
They have created a multitude of New Offices, and sent forth swarms of Officers to harass our people and to disrupt or destroy their life’s.
They have arranged to render the Elite Independent of and Superior to the Civil Law.
They have conspired with others to subject us to a jurisdiction of the U.N. which is foreign to our constitution and giving his Consent to their Acts of pretended Legislation.
They have protected Illegal Immigrants and Foreign Nationalists, by giving immunity from punishment for many Crimes which they commit on the Inhabitants of these States.
For allowing corporations to move overseas to make products with cheap or slave labor for the sole purpose to escape our laws and to allow those products to be sold at the same price, as if made in the States and not have to pay any Tariffs.
They have deprived us Justice, by using deceitful Plea Bargaining to avoid Trial by Jury.
For overriding our State Constitutions, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally, the Form of State Government, with unfunded Federal Mandates.
For overriding our own Legislatures, by abusing the Commerce Clause and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases, for their own means.
They have abandoned the People in allowing foreign powers or interests, to dictate policy such as the UN, WTO, IMF, Kyoto Accords, NAFTA, including Massive Trade Deficits which favor foreign governments.
In every stage of these Oppressions, We have petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: And repeated Elections have been answered only by repeated injury. An elected Official, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to govern the free people of the United States.
We have not wanted the scrutiny of big brother in our personal life. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us.
We have appealed to their native justice and fairness, and they have been deaf to the voice of justice. We must, therefore, concur 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 of the United States of America, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by the 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 Current Form of the Federal Government, and that all political connection between them and the Federal Government, 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 have the right do. And for the support of this Declaration of Common Sense, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
