The ReDeclaration of Independence

When in the course of American history it becomes evident that our government is no longer protecting our God-Given rights of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, yet rather serving the interests of itself, a duty is upon us, as citizens, to stand up and defend those rights enshrined in our constitution and endowed to us by our Creator.

Furthermore, it is clear to these citizens, of these United States, that many leaders in government, over the course of time, have so perverted the laws and institutions of public service, that a Re-Declaration of our founding values and rights is required to secure the God-Given Liberties guaranteed us under the Constitution.

Have not American Citizens been censored, threatened and spied upon for their political and religious beliefs? Have not members of the press been silenced for challenging corporate and government authority? Have not our Second Amendment rights to bear arms been infringed? Have not the entrenched Senate and House of Representatives, with its ninety eight percent re-election rate, eroded citizens’ representation and institutional trust? Have not the permanent government state and activist judges repeatedly thwarted the rule of law by disregarding their sworn constitutional oath, thus creating a two-tiered justice system? Has not our own government’s regulatory and financial burdens grown so large that it threatens to overwhelm our citizens’ ability to independently exist?

We see the future that many Patriots have warned us about and it’s moving dangerously towards one of oppression. We are standing for ourselves, our children and grand-children who all deserve the promises of our Founding Documents, not the oppressive rule of a self-serving, self-perpetuating political class.

Much like the Colonies upon which King George and his Parliament levied unfair taxes and enforced unjust laws before the last Revolution, we citizens have become indentured servants in a corrupt financial scheme funding endless foreign wars and occupations, government largess, mismanagement, overreach and the enrichment of political families and their allies.

With this onslaught against our Constitution and its Amendments, it is even more a duty to call out against the erosion of our Liberties. To do so, as Citizens, we must stand United and elect moral leaders who: honor the Constitution and pass laws to benefit the citizenry, rather than themselves or foreign nations and who are dedicated to reducing the role of the government and returning decision-making to the people, their States and local governments.

As our First Amendment clearly states, it is our right and duty to petition our government and its representatives for redress.
By this document we hereby express those rights and that duty and point to the following issues and corresponding remedies demanded in the face of our Government’s malfeasance. Furthermore, we desire that these grievances be cured through the election of patriotic citizen Representatives to the U.S. Congress, who have signed this ReDeclaration of Independence and pledge to govern in a manner that guarantees the future solvency and liberty of these great States:

Balanced Budget Amendment
1) To allow for the flourishing of free enterprise and private sector economic growth: Adoption of an annual Balanced Budget, collecting and spending no more than 20% of GDP. Any balance collected being returned to taxpayers or deposited in the Treasury to pay down debts and strengthen our nation during challenging times.

Pass Annual Balanced Budget by Oct. 1st or Congress Members Go Without Pay
2) To pass a federal budget in advance of the the fiscal year, October 1st, which has not been done since 1996. Congress instead has employed the practice of continuing resolution to avoid its primary job function of responsibly funding our government in a timely manner. This blatant malpractice has led to a massive national debt and the debasement of our national currency, through the inflationary effects of overspending and general budget mismanagement. We demand an end to the practice of budgeting by continuing resolution and that Congress meet its own annual October 1st deadline by delivering a balanced budget by that date OR across the board cuts will be automatically and administratively implemented to achieve this goal. Furthermore, the pay of Members of Congress, shall be suspended until an annual balanced budget is passed. All other functions of government will operate under administratively-achieved cuts until both houses of Congress pass an annual and balanced budget.

American Tax Receipts Spent on Americans First
3) To prioritize domestic welfare and veterans in public assistance before any benefit being shared with foreign nations or foreign nationals.

Term Limits
4) To re-establish the principle of self-governance and rebuild the ties between the electorate and the officeholder: Enact and enforce term limits on Congress members and Senators of 12 years or less.

Level Playing Field for American Labor
5) To enact Through Trade Legislation laws that foreign producers wishing to sell their products in America, abide by the same laws and regulation heaped on American producers. We demand a level playing field for American Workers and Producers.

Securing Our Elections
6) To ensure the right of free, fair and transparent elections, States must honor the Twelfth Amendment and the right to challenge our government and elections, without the fear of retribution. It is believed by the undesigned that our elections have been corrupted and the sanctity of the vote can only be re-established by in-person, single day, identification verified, paper-ballot, voting. Election day shall become a national holiday to honor the importance of the right to vote and allow citizens time to participate. Veterans Day would be a natural choice, honoring those who served and their sacrifices to preserve our right to free and fair elections.

Secure and Protect our Borders
7) To Secure and protect our borders. Enforce our immigration laws and adopt policies that enforce orderly migration of a law abiding and productive people.

Honor and Enforce the Constitution as Written
8) To adhere to an originalist interpretation of the Constitution as a constant reminder of our rights, the rights of the States, and the delineated and limited roles of the branches of Government: The Constitution is not a “living document.” We should strive for excellence in implementation of its structures and principles rather than re-interpret this sacred document. Inevitable evolution shall be addressed, as designed, by Amendments.

Enforce American Laws Not UN Policy on Americans
9) To be Free from collaboration on American soil or where American interests may lie, by our government and its leaders, with foreign nations and the United Nations, on policies that are contrary to our Constitution and its laws.

Energy Independence
10) To pursue and preserve strategic resources and energy independence. Strong, moral nations produce their own vital energy and strategic resources or where impossible, trade with allied nations who maintain congruent values. America is now, through decades of poor policy decisions, dependent on unstable or rogue nations for vital goods and raw materials. Remaining self-sufficient in vital resources and energy production is national security and should be treated as such.

End Department of Education
11) To ensure and provide a culture of educational opportunity and excellence in order for our children to succeed. Furthermore, as stated by Boston leaders and the Public Library trustees in 1895, “the country requires the education of the people as the safeguard of Order and Liberty.” Since its founding in 1979, the US Department of Education has squandered trillions of taxpayer dollars resulting in poor outcomes while spending at the top of all industrialized nations. This Federal experiment has failed parents and the country. We demand a return of power and purse to states, communities and parents where it can best serve our children and country.

End Political Indoctrination in our Military
12) America and the U.S. Military have achieved greatness through the simple application of meritocracy. Traditionally, in our military, soldiers, sailors and airmen have been incentivized to achieve success through excellence and teamwork, rather than through quotas and preferences. We believe the deviation from these foundational practices and the introduction of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Indoctrination
 in our military is a symptom of our national decline, force retention and critical recruitment shortfalls. We therefore demand adherence to the values of earned merit, not conditional merit, be re-established in the U.S. Military.

We hold in these United States, the God-Given Right to sign this Re-Declaration without fear of retribution by our government. However, much like Early Americans feared reprisal by the British Crown and its enforcers, we do believe that the corruption in our Government, its administration, and private allies, is so severe, that the risk of reprisal is high. In spite of these risks, we are exercising our Constitutional Right of Free Speech and expect “to be secure in our persons, papers and effects”…

With that understood and under the grace of God, “for the support of this ReDeclaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our Sacred Honor.”
