The Unanimous Declaration Of The Sovereign People Of The United States 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 and women 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 People, 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 has continued to show 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 usurpation’s, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Corporatism, 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 United States; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present Government/Corporate partnership is a history of repeated injuries and usurpation’s, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these United States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
Corporatism has refused its Assent to Constitutional Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
Corporatism has forbidden Congress to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till its Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, it has utterly neglected to attend to them.
Corporatism has refused to allow other Laws for the accommodation of large assemblies of people, unless those people would relinquish the Bill of Rights, Rights inestimable to them and formidable to tyranny only.
Corporatism has 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 its measures.
Corporatism has bribed and coerced Congress repeatedly, for opposing its invasions on the Rights of the people.
Corporatism has provided for a long time others to be elected, while Congress has claimed itself Representative to the People; the State remaining in the mean time divided and vulnerable to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
Corporatism has endeavored to prevent the population of these United States; for that purpose abolishing the Established Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations here, and raising the conditions of Established Appropriations of Rights.
Corporatism has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing its Assent to Established Laws for Judiciary Powers.
Corporatism has made Judges dependent on its Will alone putting at grave risk the Independence of the Judiciary.
Corporatism has erected a multitude of New Offices, and created swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
Corporatism has kept among us, Private Armies with the Consent of our legislatures, without the Consent of the Governed.
Corporatism has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.
Corporatism has combined with Foreign Nations to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving its Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For dispersing large bodies of paramilitary police among us. For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these United States.
For cutting off our information from all parts of the world.
For imposing Taxes on us for the provisions of Corporations without our Consent.
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury.
For transporting us over Seas to be tried for pretended offences.
For abolishing the free System of United States Laws in Invaded Lands, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into These United States.
For taking away our Treaties, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Form of our Government.
For corrupting our own Congress, and declaring themselves invested with power to write legislation for us in all cases whatsoever.
Corporatism has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of its due Protection and waging War against our Established Rights.
Corporatism has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, drowned our cities and destroyed the lives of our people.
Corporatism is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Torture scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Model of a civilized nation.
Corporatism has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive by Fear to bear false witness against their Country, their Constitution, to become the informers of their friends and Brothers, or to fall themselves by their own admission.
Corporatism has excited domestic divisions amongst us, and has deliberately endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of Foreign Countries, the emboldened victims of “Disaster Capitalism” whose known rule of warfare is terrorism, an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
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. Corporatism, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define Tyranny, is unfit to be the Form of Government of a free people.
Nor have We been silent to our fellow Americans. We have warned them many times of attempts by their Congress to extend an unwarrantable Corporate jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here.
We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common Rights to disavow these usurpation’s, which would inevitably interrupt our communications, our assemblies, our electronic connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and non-violence. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, in Contempt at War. At Peace, Friends.
We, therefore, the Patriotic Citizens of the United States of America, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of being the good People of these United States, solemnly publish and declare, That these United States are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that these United States are Absolved from all Allegiance to Corporatism, and that all political connections between them and Corporatsim, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent People of these United States, have full Power through Legitimately Elected Government to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent People 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 Liberty, and our sacred Honor.
