American Patriot Party Endorsements:
American Patriot Party Endorses Candidates outside it's own party that most
closely follows our aims and goals for a free country.
In 2004, the Patriot Party gave Limited Candidate Endorsement for President Michael Peroutka of the Constitutional Party, for President. Note:
The Oregon Patriot Party had abstained from that endorsement. In 2008, Ron
Paul was endorsed by a number of states through the primaries; Upon endorsement
of Chuck Baldwin by Ron Paul, some states members followed with their votes.
Review the National American Patriot Party website Candidates Page and see who, why, and what American Patriot Party members are voting for.
the Patriot Party solution to the two party monopoly, The American Patriot
Party is made up of registered Republicans, Libertarians, Democrats who wish
to see the true intent of the founding fathers of this country realized.
The two candidate voting system:
This system allows the voter to vote for the candidate he believes will be the best person for the job;
If that person does not get enough votes, his second choice is recorded.
This allows the voter to vote his conscience first without throwing away a crucial vote.
example would be, if you believed Ron Paul was the best person for the job
as president but did not want to loose a vote to another Republican Candidate
that may or may be more popular You would simply vote Ron Paul as your
first choice and the more popular candidate for second choice;
If Ron Paul did not carry the votes necessary to be a contender, you would not loose anything;
This is because the second choice vote would automatically engage and be counted that candidate.
This innovative voting system allows for greater options to vote your conscience.
The American Patriot Party and Oregon Patriot Party, Championing the "No Names No Numbers Tax";
The States Liberty Bill,
Federal Government Patriot Tax System Reform Bill, Zoning Abolishment Bill;
The Private Person and Property Security Bill and the Freedom Responsibility
Bill which places the responsibility on every court and government
agency at every level to have the power to refuse laws that it deems contrary
to the Inalienable Rights guaranteed by the Declaration of Independence as
intended by the founders letters and constitution of this country without
reprimand by federal, state, county or other entity, thereby empowering the
responsibility defined in the Declaration of Independence wherein it states
"That, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, 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 a 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...
that when this was written, it did not mean within the constraints of the
existing law or within the constraint of a government procedure such as a
voting system; As they stood outside and apart from their own present government
at that time, and had no "legal" government.
They were individuals making a stand.
This imposed a power of a people, any group of people; not of a, or any, government.
The Declaration of Independence defines
1.) a free individual his first right and duty and;
2.) 40 Definitions of a Tyrannical government in which to impose your first right and duty upon.
Constitution's purpose is to fully, in compliance with the Declaration
of Independence's foundation, limit the powers of the Federal Government.
This is the sole purpose of the Constitution; and it does
not, in any way, overwrite the foundations and duties laid out by the Declaration
Clearly as written in the Constitution Article VI,
that the Constitution is bound by prior Oaths which are Engagements of the
People, declared in The Declaration of Independence, and all agreements set
forth in the Confederation; All those and future laws subject ultimately
to those oaths which are "Engagements" of and with the People presented in
the Declaration of Independence, "Not Withstanding".
Constitution: Article VI: All Debts contracted "and "Engagements" entered into (Oaths and Declarations), before the adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution as under the "Confederation". This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be "made" in >>>"pursuance thereof" ; and all Treaties (Oaths and Declarations) "made", or which shall be "made", under the Authority of the United States, shall be supreme Law of the Land ...."
Note that any law made under the Constitution is limited to laws within the "DELEGATED" Powers; The federal legislature - federal government cannot create laws outside those very limited delegated powers, nor can they "arrogate" ANY new powers.
powers are limited to the 10 miles square of Washington DC The Supremacy
Clause is a limited power; It cannot exceed the delegated powers.
These are clearly defined by the Founders in the Constitutional Debates in the Ratifying Conventions of 1788.

The Declaration of Independence
The unanimous declaration of the thirteen United States of America, in Congress, July 4, I776.
The Oregon Patriot Party presents this side by side
reference to the plain meanings within this document which are ever increasingly
being ignored by our government. Words and their meanings have been presented
as well as factual references and insights.
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.
The document begins by acknowledging there will
be times when it will be necessary for a people to break away from a form
of government. To assume the powers of independent nations as "States" and
people. To become and be respected as equal nations as "States" - See 37 and 39 Grievances Below.
That it is a natural succession entitled to them by the laws of nature and
of God. That with respect to views and opinions of all mankind they believe
it decent and a self imposed requirement that they present the reasons for
which they feel it necessary to separate from their home country. The Right to Separate.
We hold these truths to be self-evident:
1. Conformity to fact or actuality.
2. A statement proven to be or accepted as true.
1. Requiring no proof or explanation.
That all men are created equal; that they
are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among
these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
1. Definite; fixed.
2. Sure to come or happen; inevitable.
3. Established beyond doubt or question; indisputable.
1. That cannot be transferred to another or others.
1. Conforming with or conformable to justice, law, or . morality.
2. In accordance with fact, reason, or truth; correct.
Meaning that there are more inalienable rights than are being immediately mentioned.
opposite meanings of those 40 Grievances presented in this document which
define what freedom is not, are also inalienable rights.
These Grievances are listed further below;
the Bill of Rights outlined more of these inalienable rights. (The Bill of
Rights are derived from early individual rights established in England but
expanded to true and greater defined absolute rights in America).
To live where and how one wants to live so long as it does not physically injure another person.
a. The condition of being free from restriction or control.
b. The right and power to act, believe, or express oneself in a manner of one's own choosing.
c. The condition of being physically and legally free from confinement, servitude, or forced labor.
2. Freedom from unjust or undue governmental control.
3. A right and power to engage in certain actions without control or interference.
a. The act or an instance of chasing or pursuing.
b. The act of striving.
c. An activity, such as a vocation or hobby, engaged in regularly.
That, to secure these rights, governments are instituted
among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;
Our Government is created to protect these rights. That any power a government has is there only with the consent of the people.
does not give the people or the government the power to change or abolish
inalienable rights which cannot be given away, taken away, sold or transferred.
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 a 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.
Should the government try to alter or destroy any inalienable rights, it is the right of the people,
any one or number of people *,
to alter or abolish that government and create a new government that respects those inalienable rights;
which make a government ask consent of the governed for which this right
of altercation or abolishment is granted. They are describing here why they
are separating and setting the stage for that what it is that will be most
likely to effect their safety and happiness.
1. To change or make different; modify.
1. To do away with; annul.
2. To destroy completely.
Note that only 38 Patriot villagers ran out and faced the largest government
in the world at that time; facing 700 British Regulars across Lexington Bridge.
Of the 38, 8 died and 9 were wounded.
The British under direction of General Gage then went on to destroy citizens militia supplies at Concord.
the British Government at that time nor our own Federal government likes
armed civilians equal to the strength of the standing army. Yet, this is
the reason for the 12th Grievance which defines the 2nd Amendment - see below.
14 of Gages men were lost in the following skirmishes after the supplies were destroyed at Concord.
everywhere though outnumbered took to their guns and chased after the British
who were reinforced by 1200 more men and field pieces (cannon) and the battle
intensified until the British found safe haven in Charlestown. The British
suffering 247 casualties to the Colonists 88.
True Patriotism is not defined in numbers but in those who is willing and will to defend Certain, Inalienable, Rights.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments
long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and
accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer,
while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms
to which they are accustomed.
Much consideration should be taken before changing
a government that has been in existence for a long time; and never changed
for causes that are unimportant or that will change easily with time.
has shown that man is willing to be beat down a long time with regulations
and abusive laws of a government before they get mad enough to to take steps
to change it; or courage enough to fight and overthrow it. This is because
they become accustomed to the misuse, rendering themselves lazy, unfocussed
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations,
pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under
absolute despotism, 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
suffering of these colonies, and such is now the necessity which constrains
them to alter their former systems of government
However, when after many abuses have been suffered
which indicates that such a government will continue to misuse its powers
and ignore those inalienable rights and rule with oppressive power.
is each individual's or group of individuals RIGHT and DUTY to over throw
that government and to create safeguards to protect themselves from the same
misuse occurring in the future.
This includes the Federal Government
and Constitution if it becomes degraded to a point that is contrary to the
Declaration of Independence which is the lone document that defines freedom.The
origionating founders letters providing further the intent.
died for this document alone; no one died to ratify the Constitution. Also,
the Constitution would have never been ratified without the Bill of Rights
that are the ``Among These" defined in the Declaration of Independence defining
``Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
1. To seize and hold (the power or rights of another, for example) by force and without legal authority.
2. To take over or occupy without right.
3. To seize another's place, authority, or possession wrongfully.
To show or demonstrate clearly; manifest.
despot or despotism:
1. A ruler with absolute power.
2. A person or government who wields power oppressively,
3. A tyrant or those collectively with unlimited power or authority.
4. Any Tyrannical control.
Our countries reasons for seeking independence.
The history of the present king of Great Britain
is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object
the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states.
*** Although the following complaints by the Colonies
were aimed toward the king of England, you can see that some of the problems
they faced then are not so unlike the problems we are facing right now with
an oppressive federal government.
Remember, it doesn't matter what
a controlling oppressing power is; as it can be a king, a dictator, a bureaucracy,
a socialist structure, a democracy, a republic; It means very clearly "any government", any form of oppressive power.
policy, immigration and foreign armed forces not so unlike the U.N. (united
nations), Federal armed forces and civil militias are also easily related
in the Grievances and described clearly.
*** Below we have
offered correlation's between what was then a reason to become independent
and present day problems needed to be corrected. We have numbered the reasons
for ease of reference.
1.) To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid
world. He has refused his assent to laws the most wholesome and necessary
for the public good.
THE 40 GRIEVANCES
1.) Here again our founding fathers are proposing to set down laws that will be wholesome and necessary for the public good.
1. Conducive to sound health or well-being; salutary.
2. Promoting mental, moral, or social health.
3. Enjoying or marked by physical, mental, or moral soundness; healthy.
1. Absolutely essential.
2. Needed to achieve a certain result or effect; requisite.
3.a. Unavoidably determined by prior conditions or circumstances; inevitable. b. Logically inevitable.
4. Required by obligation, compulsion, or convention 5. Something indispensable.
2.) He has forbidden his governors to pass 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.
2.) Here we have been given an example of local
governments whose serious immediate needs are being ignored or suspended
by a higher oppressive power until that power gives its approval.
States Rights and Local Rights to Pass Local Laws are an Inalienable Right.
3.) He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation
of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right
of representation in the legislature; a right inestimable to them and formidable
to tyrants only.
3.) Here the king try's to keep any opposition to
his rule by only allowing people into its domain if they give up their right
to have representation in the legislature or voice in the law making process.
is another way of refusing accommodation of large districts of people and
is completely against the rights of the people who have a right to build
and live where they wish.
Another reason that our Rights cannot be given up or even given or traded away!
1. Impossible to estimate or compute.
2. Of immeasurable value or worth; invaluable.
4.) He has called together legislative bodies, at
places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the repository of their public
records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his
4.) The reason for have law libraries and places of records in every major city.
there are federal records for federal agencies that are almost impossible
to access freely or obtain cost effectively: the Bureau of Land Management
among others who's records you have to ask them to get for you so you must
know exactly what you are looking for; and are unable to research all copies
of their records freely. An agency that needs to be dissolved anyway and
lands given to each states local county control.
BLM also has their own courts in Virginia that determine the outcome of their own administrative law.
and Federal "Administrative law" now causes people to travel hundreds of
miles for "pretrial hearings" long before the actual trial and far from the
area of where the issues are occurring, thus fatiguing those that need to
defend themselves or their position and creating great difficulty to a proceeding
that will be given great weight at a eventual trial.
5.) He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly
for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
5.) Here the king try's to keep people from
organizing and representing themselves against him for his actions against
the peoples rights by using force.
This is another reason why civilians
in this country have a right to keep and bear arms and why the civilian army
needs to always be of greater strength than the standing army. (continue
reading for this absolute fact and prescription written as a grievance the
12th Grievance in the Declaration of Independence)
6.) He has refused for a long time after such dissolutions
to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable
of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise:
the state remaining, in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion
from without and convulsions within.
6.) Basically, after such dissolving of representatives,
the king delays the election of others, meanwhile those powers or laws they
wish to have removed, changed or be protected from, return to take what they
want from them (convulsions from within); and kept from any representation
through the legislative process to receive adequate protection from their
enemies (invasion from without). The reason for the 12th Grievance and 2nd
7.) He has endeavored to prevent the population
of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization
of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither,
and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.
7.) Here the king tries to keep people out of this
country and from entering the states by not granting naturalization and raising
the cost and creating costly and difficult procedures or conditions to obtain
land or properties.
This is an absolute statement denying the right of the king to keep people from migrating to this country
It is also just one more reason why Zoning of land which restrict the liberty
of building and living where one wishes is unconscionable and unconstitutional.
It is regulation that keeps jobs from this country, not immigration. Lift all zoning and there would be no unemployment.
1. To or toward this place.
hither and thither or hither and yon.
In or to many places; here and there.
Building codes for publicly owned buildings and Emission controls for companies
whose pollution leaves its property into the public would not be restricted
from being laws regulating them.
This is an area of special consideration
which will be addressed at length later on in this web site where we discuss
where Rights of one are not Rights to encroach upon another.
8.) He has obstructed the administration of justice by refusing his assent to laws for establishing his judiciary powers.
8.) Simply, the king refused to agree to anyone
creating laws that would establish any kind of guidelines or firm rules to
1. Agreement; concurrence.
2. Acquiescence; consent. (*** a word used later below)
3. To agree, as to a proposal; concur.
9.) He has made judges dependent on his will alone for the tenure of their offices and the amount and payment of their salaries.
9.) Self explanatory.
He controlled all
judges by controlling their salaries. Appointed judges can face similar biases
if they are appointed. However, if they are educated in both law and the
laws of freedom as presented by the founding fathers in the Declaration of
Independence, such biases should be very limited by just reasoning.
10.) He has erected a multitude of new offices and
sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.
10.) Here the king has created massive bureaucracy just as we see in our country today.
we do not need. Enforcing laws on us we don't need; And ``eating out our
substance", our hard earned money, to pay for their high salaries, insurance,
dental, doctor and retirement!
Then they have the gall to ask for fees for their services!
for the armed forces, police and fire. All else is welfare, should be paid
accordingly and limited to four years service to the public.
They would then have that training to use toward work and position in the private work place.
This is why we need to put a freeze on government employee hiring and begin
shifting jobs from nonessential government offices to essential government
offices as openings become available.
*** At the same time, declare
Zoning, as it is in fact, unconstitutional. This will open the way for private
jobs through private enterprise.
11.) He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislatures.
11.) This is not an issue in our country but for the lack of local control over federal policing agencies by local legislature.
It does cement the fact that Federalism was hated by the original founders.
"federalists" created, after freedom was won for free and independent states,
a condition that was sure to create the very same problematic issues of a
large central government they had just wrestled freedom from.
Only later was federalism ``debated" by a few who forgot what they fought against to gain their freedom.
Legislatures were independent of the kings court and independent of each state or area.
(local control) desperately needed now, would reduce some public tensions
from unwarranted federal policing tactics which should be left outside our
country for socialists, communists and other enemies to a truely defined free society based on these inalienable rights.
12.) He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to the civil power.
12.) Here is a powerful statement of our Fore
Fathers that the civil power should be equal to or greater than the military
Most importantly, it defines the difference of the two.
This can be no plainer.
Lets look at what these words mean.
1. Of, relating to, or befitting a citizen or citizens.
2. Of or relating to citizens and their interrelations with one another or with the state.
3. Of ordinary citizens or ordinary community life as distinguished from the military or the ecclesiastical.
4. Of or in accordance with organized society; civilized.
5. Sufficiently observing or befitting accepted social usage's; not rude.
6. Being in accordance with or denoting legally recognized divisions of time.
Law. Relating to the rights of private individuals and legal proceedings
concerning these rights as distinguished from criminal, military, or international
regulations or proceedings.
Militia - Civil Power:
1. An army composed of ordinary citizens rather than professional soldiers. (i.e. CIVIL POWER)
2. A military force that is not part of a regular army and is subject to call for service in an emergency.
The whole body of physically fit civilians eligible by law for military service.
(not applicable as all service at the time was voluntary - one should note
that any just war will have many volunteers. Abraham Lincoln was the fist
to impose a draft and hundreds of people were hung in the streets in protest.
The fact is that slavery was the only thing that the south was wrong in,
the war was actually fought to assure northern industry could not be regulated,
out competed or restricted by southern states in commerce. The Declaration
of Independence guarantees Free and Independent States (37th & 39th Grievances
below). The war would have been won by the south had not the draft be implemented.
This is no glaring approval to federalism of which dangers presented in the
federalist papers are now coming true.)
Note: Because the national guard is controlled by the federal government and paid as a reserve force it is not a civil power as defined or practiced. It is an extension of the standing army.
military - Standing Army
1. Of, relating to, or characteristic of members of the armed forces.
2. Performed or supported by the armed forces.
3. Of or relating to war.
4. Of or relating to land forces.
5. Armed forces.
6. Members, especially officers, of an armed force.
13.) He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitutions and unacknowledged by our laws, giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:
13.) Here the king has joined with others to place the colonists under the jurisdiction of those he has conspired with.
makes it very clear that no laws but our own shall govern our country. And
that States (colonies) rights they possessed not be subject to far removed
Laws imposed on the United States by any UN charters
are unconstitutional and directly in conflict with the Declaration of Independence.
The federal government by its relentless defiance of the founding documents intent of this document which is a Engagement
of the people and allowance of financial gain as well as outside interventions
with the same corruption is now practicing this same pretended legislation.
14.) For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us;
14.) Self explanatory. Remember, these were British citizens whose own government placed a standing army among the citizenry.
was a reason to over throw their government. Think about this, then read
the 12th grievance again. This further defines the rights of individual citizens
to be in their right to keep and bear arms equal to and greater than the standing army.
15.) For protecting them by a mock trial from punishment
for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states;
15.) The reason for crimes against civilians by
government or military personnel to be placed in local civil courts and tried
by civilians. Not military courts.
16.) For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world;
16.) Affirms free trade. Inside as well as outside the US.
17.) For imposing taxes on us without our consent;
The Government cannot tax us unless we agree to be taxed.
taxation without representation". (Do not confuse representatives - persons
- with that which is representative of that which is purchased with peoples
Remember, the colonists had British "representatives" who made decisions for them; this is what they fought against.
This is a inalienable right as it is one of the original ``Bill of Rights"; and cannot be changed.
16th amendment of the Constitution is in violation of the original constitution
and the 17th Grievance of the Declaration of Independence.
You cannot amend an inalienable right; and representation does not mean a
representative as an individual, it means representation of the need by consent.
General funds are unconstitutional as they do not pertain to a specific purpose
which has been dedicated by the people themselves by vote and individual
This is why a general percentage tax derived from income, property or sales is unconstitutional.
It makes it impossible to stop collecting when funds for a particular need
are satisfied; and creates a bureaucracy that expends more money just to
return over taxation back to the people.... If your ``representitives decide
to give you back your money; or throw it back into a ``general fund" to spend
when and where they want.
This last problem is what expands
bureaucracies and dependencies of people upon government money, and should
be stopped for it is unconstitutional and extremely damaging to freedom and
(see: No Names No Numbers Tax)
18.) For depriving us in many cases of the benefits of trial by jury;
18.) Self explanatory. (see constitution for jury
of peers encroachment) There are so many unconstitutional laws pertaining
to private property that courts have become clogged with petty infractions
to laws which should never have been laws in the first place. The biggest
infraction is one person telling another what he should or shouldn't do with
his own property.
Because of this clogging of unnecessary laws, the
courts have began developing ways for people to wave their right to a jury
by trial to cut costs.
Administrative law has been developed to bypass
laws that protect people. Administrative Hearings before court proceedings
force people to travel burdensome miles from home prior to the final courts
This practice is beginning to work itself into the entire
legal system. (i.e. small claims court, traffic violations etc.) This is
a dangerous practice which could be greatly alleviated by reducing petty
laws and presenting laws that address only real crimes and not perceived
In a free country you cannot wave, sell or trade away rights. Rights are certain and inalienable.
You cannot agree to arbitration, as you cannot freely give up your right to a jury by trial which is an inalienable right.
19.) For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses;
19.) Self explanatory. Not an issue at this time. A danger if UN charters impose laws on our country as well as other countries.
20.) For abolishing the free system of English laws
in a neighboring province, 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 colonies;
20.) Bureaucracies such as the Bureau of Land Management
(BLM) as well as other large federal bureaucracies present powers within
themselves. BLM now possesses armed rangers as well as legal enforcement
of their own laws.
They also have their own Hearings and Appeals
court in Virginia that proceeds all other courts pertaining to their laws
and issues of property within their jurisdiction.
Most recently this
particular bureaucracy is being used as a major tool to expand even greater
control over Federal lands through so called environmental protection causes.
21.) For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments;
21.) Self explanatory. Inalienable Rights... which
are Laws, our most valuable laws, are even now being abolished and altered.
This is Treason by any who involves themselves in enforcing laws that ignore,
over ride or water down inalienable rights.
Our present federal government
is constantly altering fundamentally the form of our government. They simply
refuse to realize that freedom works. They place this country and its true
definition of freedoms in peril.
22.) For suspending our own legislatures and declaring
themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
22.) A problem where Federal Government tries to impose powers over State, and Federal and State over County jurisdictions.
our state legislatures occurred during the Civil War, and now the federal
government uses federally collected tax money to ``bribe" i.e. ``if you don't
do what we want, you won't receive matching federal funds";
reason not to have taxes given without a particular reason, or representative
of exactly what it should be spent for, or without our individual consent
In this way the federal government would have nothing by which to bribe local governments.
present government is not the type of government the origionating founders
envisioned, as clearly defined in the 37th and 39th Grievances (below) and
23.) He has abdicated government here by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.
23.) Here the national government has relinquished
the power of the local governments and waged war against them. This happened
in the Civil War also by the Federal Government that refused to heed the
It is continuing now through the use of financial
manipulation of corrupt taxation to withhold moneys from states and counties
whose is rightfully theirs to use as they wish in the first place, that will
not comply with federal measures. A dangerous combination when international
agreements cause sway in our most valuable laws.
1. To relinquish (power or responsibility) formally.
To relinquish formally a high office or responsibility.
24.) He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns and destroyed the lives of our people.
24.) Self explanatory.
Notice they did not call them "terrorists".
They later called them enemies and left it at that; `At war enemies in peace friends'. We should learn by this.
Trying to sell a new definition of enemy such as `terrorism' is a ploy to take more rights away from free citizens;
only reason to use such terms is to step around laws which normally restrict
governments from invading the rights of its citizens.
25.) He is at this time transporting large armies of
mercenaries to complete the work of death, desolation, and tyranny already
begun, with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the
most barbarous ages and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.
25.) A reason to never allow foreign armies jurisdiction,
for any cause, over, or occupation within, our lands; namely at this time
the UN, property ownership of US lands by individuals not of US citizenship
(renewable leases that are revocable in time of war and subject to US interest
laws would be acceptable but absolutely no foreign or U.N or other country's
26.) He has constrained our fellow citizens taken
captive upon the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become
the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by
26.) No military should take up arms against its own people.
No man should be pressed into service.
A just war will find many volunteers.
the purpose we went to war was to defend certain inalienable rights and then
to establish certain inalienable rights in another country we defeat, there
would be no reason for a draft which is against established certain inalienable
The sad part of our present military actions, is that
we in defense attack and defeat a nation in retaliation, then instead of
establishing true freedoms there, we lift up "total democracy", or a mob
rules or total socialism, which in fact democracy is when it is without "certain
inalienable rights" as its foundation to limit its governments corruption;
then proclaim the installed European type government that does not recognize
certain inalienable rights as some form of freedom.
Which it is not.
The people still left under subjugation of their government.
UN as it stands, can be used against its own people and countries practicing
inalienable rights if the "international community decides" and is the reason
it should be disarmed and merely a room where nations debate real problems
and for which each nation will act on their own sovereign interests.
is also another reason for the citizenry to have equal or greater arms than
the standing army as is defined in the 12th grievance.
27.) He has excited domestic insurrection amongst
us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers the merciless
Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare is an undistinguished destruction
of all ages, sexes, and conditions.
27.) Self explanatory. *Government should
not sell (promote) its worth, or need of their services to us, our services
to them, or to others sympathetic to that which insures their employment.
We have fallen into the same method of warfare due to modern warfare weapons and tactics.
Again, notice we did not redefine an enemy by calling them terrorists.
28.) In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress, in the most humble terms;
28.) Self explanatory. We also present these to the Federal Government.
29.) our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.
29.) Self explanatory.
30.) A prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
30.) Defines character as a very important factor in the leadership of a free people.
31.) Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren.
31.) Self explanatory. Here many people just want
to be left alone by an imposing federal government of today which increasingly
places burdens on the people that it now extracts tax money from without
The reason for the 17th Grievance.
32.) We have warned them, from time to time, of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us.
32.) The reason this web site is created.
educate and indeed warn both local, state and federal governments that they
have been overstepping the laws that they have sworn to uphold;
So they can make the changes that is their right and duty to make; individually or collectively.
is: to throw out all laws and imposing regulations not aligned with the Grievances
and rights of the Declaration of Independence.
The excuse of just doing ones job, is no excuse to ignore ones duty to his country.
If you know something to be adverse to the original Grievances, work to remove it; which is your individual RIGHT and your DUTY.
- Work to make the UN simply a room for which independent countries can talk
freely; nothing more; and having no separate military or jurisdictive powers
over other countries.
This will keep any foreign, and indeed unwarrantable jurisdiction away from our free country.
33.) We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here.
33.) Self explanatory.
34.) We have appealed to their native justice and
magnanimity; and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred,
to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections
34.) Self explanatory.
35.) They, too. have been deaf to the voice of justice and consanguinity.
35.) Self explanatory.
1. Of the same lineage or origin; having a common ancestor.
36.) We must, therefore, acquiesce in the
necessity which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest
of mankind, enemies in war - in peace, friends.
36.) Self explanatory.
Establishes the right to separate from any form of government.
37.) We, therefore, the representatives of the United
States of America, in general congress 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 colonies, solemnly publish and
declare that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent states;
37.) Self explanatory.
Supreme Judge of the World: God
Free and Independent states. Are you deaf ???
38.) that they are absolved from all allegiance
to the British crown, and that all political connection between them and
the state of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved;
38.) Self explanatory.
39.) 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 may of right do.
39.) Self explanatory.
Free and Independent States. Are you deaf ???
40.) 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.
(Click here to See just what many of these men Sacrificed).
40.) ...our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.
This is an Engagement with and of the American people that subjugates the United States Constitution as defined in the Constitution's structure;
Wherein it states clearly:
Article VI of the Constitution of the United States:
All Debts contracted and "Engagements entered into", "before the Adoption" of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation.
This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof;
(in PURSUANCE THEREOF)
and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land;
the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution
or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwith-standing.
and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State
Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United
States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation,
to support this Constitution;
but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States. (They however relied upon God for its success. ie "Divine Providence" giving respect, and achknowlegement)
What greater ENGAGEMENT is there of freedom, than the Declaration of Independence that establishes freedom!
Constitution which purpose is to limit the powers of government, not to empower
it, is subject to the Declaration of Independence and the letters of the
Originating Founding Fathers of 1776 that define the intent of this written
Engagement that is the founding document of true freedom.
It is the ONLY document for which those who fought for freedom died and sacrificed for, there was no other.
Washington read it to his troops before each battle so that there was no
question as to what they were sacrificing for.
Those who signed this document, and those who fought for this document risked everything;
men did give up their lives and fortunes as they pledged for freedom. To
find out what became of the signers and just what many of these men Sacrificed
... Click here
in history of the world or in the world today, is there such a document that
defends against subjugation of governments and empowers the individual above
any and all governments with certain inalienable rights, placing any and
all governments at their feet.
All other people are subjects to the governments of their own making.
not make the mistake of confusing true freedom defined by "certain, inalienable
rights" presented here as its foundation, with all those falsely proclaimed
"free nations" such as England who have no such foundation.

Freedom is more than simply a symbol
such as a flag of which meaning can be changed with a ``democratic" vote,
modern interpretation or a federal government or ``country" that preaches
unity & peace. It is in fact ``a law that guarantees an individuals inalienable
rights"; Life, to live where one wants to live and without harassment or
condemnation from others; Liberty to move about where one wants to move
and live without regard to licenses, permits or zone requirements; And the
pursuit of happiness that cannot be taken away by a so called ``democracy"
or executive order or other ``grand plans" of others. Freedom is an absolute
guarantee of ``Certain" `` Inalienable" `` Rights" . ``AMONG"... ``these"
are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Further described ``Among
these" are the Bill of Rights which are inalienable, unchangeable God given
natural birth rights; of which the constitution would have never been ratified
without their inclusion.
