The ebb and flow of history and time have brought the cycle of liberty to a full circle in the United States of America. From tyranny to revolution, from revolution to liberty, from liberty to decadence, and from decadence back into the chains of tyranny. We came out of bondage into a time of prosperity and freedom that our forefathers won at great sacrifice to themselves and their progeny. This milk and honey of liberty has led generations after our forefathers to lose the invaluable memory of the suffering and hardship that absolute tyranny brings to the human soul. Also forgotten is the hardship in breaking the bonds of this tyranny. We are now in a time of waning liberty and rising tyranny. It is here and now.
We have long tolerated – and have now begun to peacefully protest – legions of abuses and usurpations that now lead us down a path to absolute despotism. We no longer face one tyrant exercising arbitrary power from his throne 3,000 miles away as our forefathers did, but many tyrants here in our own country. We face an expression of tyranny that is unique to our time, yet wholly the same in its disregard for human dignity and freedom. We have voiced our grievances to this government time and time again only to be ignored, scorned, or rejected. As the iron grip of tyranny squeezes our fellow countrymen, our situation has become undeniable to all but those who wish to blind us from the truth.
The continuing abuses and usurpations that we the American people have endured have occurred at the direction and reign of both political parties. We now see that a long train of abuses at the behest of a legion of elites who hold no allegiance to this country or its founding documents evinces a design to reduce us to absolute despotism. We hold no pleasure in coming to this realization; It is with great pain that we present the crimes of the usurped United States government.
For trampling the Constitution and Bill of Rights of the United States of America with wanton disregard for the liberties they protect.
For pursuing a discernable objective of eroding the national sovereignty of the United States without the consent of the people.
For committing – and conspiring to commit – criminal acts, including the murder of our fellow countrymen, to deceive the people into supporting foreign entanglements and wars that have no benefit to our country nor our people, save a few elites.
For rendering our police into a paramilitary force that threatens to undermine our God-given rights by brute force.
For undermining, in many cases denying, the people’s right to vote by means of electronic voting machines.
For violating the Posse Comitatus act of 1878 and engaging in domestic military law enforcement.
For illegal spying and surveillance of citizens with no apparent justification, nor a warrant to allow its lawful practice.
For the torture and illegal imprisonment of both citizens and non-citizens in the ongoing war on terror.
We, the free peoples of the United States, appealing to our creator and our final judge, declare ourselves free and independent states, and separate ourselves from the now usurped United States government in order to escape the perilous tyranny that we now face. We declare 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. In taking this bold step, we pledge as our forefathers pledged to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.
