Welcome to the American Patriot Party "States Liberty Bill" page. The "States Liberty Bill" is presently being drafted. Summary of contents listed below. For information on portions of the Oregon Patriot Party "States Liberty Bill" please review the
"No Names"  "No Numbers" True Patriot Tax system - The A Tax or Anonymity Tax  which is one of ten bills to this important state and community empowering freedom and Liberty Bill to reduce and to control the federal government, its spending; Removing federal and state manipulation and impositions upon the people and their property within the states.

Below is a brief summary of the American Patriot Party's
"States Liberty Bill(s)" to be proposed. Note that these are summaries of both state and federal combined; It in no way conveys powers to the federal government outside it's limited delegated powers set out in the Original Compact in either prosecution of crimes or creation of laws for either state or federal law  under direction of the federal government; States, counties being the reference where applicable; Reference this:

Thomas Jefferson Kentucky Resolutions - 1798

2." Resolved, That the Constitution of the United States, having delegated to Congress a power to punish:

a.)   treason,
b.)  counterfeiting
the securities and current coin of the United States,
c.)  piracies, and felonies committed on the high seas, and
d.)  offenses against the law of nations,


and it being true as a general principle, and one of the amendments to the Constitution having also declared, that"the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, not prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people," therefore the act of Congress, passed on the 14th day of July, 1798, and intituled "An Act in addition to the act intituled An Act for the punishment of certain crimes against the United States," as also the act passed by them on the day of June, 1798, intituled "An Act to punish frauds committed on the bank of the United States,"(>>>> and ALL their OTHERACTS which assume to CREATE, DEFINE, or PUNISH crimes, OTHER than THOSE so enumerated in the Constitution,) >>> are "ALTOGETHER" "VOID", and of "NO FORCE"; and that the power tocreate, define, and punish such other crimesisreserved, and, ofright,appertainssolelyandexclusively to the respective "STATES", each within its own territory."

Virginia Ratifying Convention 6-16-1788:
 George Nicholas: He then proceeded thus: But, says he, who is to determine the extent of such powers? I say, the same power which, in "ALL" well-regulated communities,determines the "extent" of "legislative" powers.If they exceed these powers, the "JUDICIARY" will declare it "VOID", or else "the PEOPLE" will have a "RIGHT" to declare it "VOID".


 The A Tax - Anonymity Tax
- Establishment of the
Anonymity Tax System; Limits Federal Taxation to import tariffs collected by states at ports of call; States will have oversight to assure tax is consensual and enumerated correctly; Removal and restriction of all other forms of taxation issued by the federal government. Removes IRS and removes need for IRS. Establishes standards and fiscal responsibility by use of Constitutional limitations to types of federal expenditures and removes the private Federal Reserve.  Establishes local control of taxation, unseating and voting cycle powers of citizens to remove or reduce taxes or services. Presents States a alternative way of taxation by establishing anonymous automated toll tax.

 Victory - Private Property - Establishing Absolute Property, Water, Building, mining, and Business Rights and titles; Removes and prohibits of Zoning, Condemnation and all Imminent Domain laws (state or federal);Prohibits federal or international impositions or manipulations within states or counties whatsoever; Nor state or county mandated policies on Property, Building and Business outside of obvious and registerable pollution and safety standards dictated by the local county communities.

See Virginia Ratifying Convention 6-16-1788:

Mr. PENDLETON. Mr. Chairman, this clause does "NOT" give Congress power to impede the operation of ANY PART of the Constitution,(N)or to make>>>"ANY" REGULATION that mayaffect the interests of the citizens of the Union"AT LARGE"."

This presents that Treaties cannot effect states inside the states. Nor can they arrogate ANY NEW powers; The federal government CANNOT use the amendment process which is created to correct the delegated powers, to ARROGATE NEW powers not delegated in the original compact which they have been EXPRESSLY PROHIBITED in the Ratifying Conventions;

Those pushing the fairtax and flat tax should take note, as their tax systems are no more constitutional than the income tax which is an arrogated power imposed unconstitutionally though the amendment process which was limited to changing the delegated powers alone; not arrogating new powers; The states cannot serve as a means to arrogate powers to the federal government which it is expressly prohibited.

Madison:If that "latitude" of construction which he contends for were to take place with respect to the "sweeping clause", there "would" be room for those horrors. But it gives no supplementary power. It only enables them to execute the "delegated powers". "If" the "delegation" of their powers be "safe", no possible inconvenience can arise from this clause. It is at most "but" explanatory.

I understand that clause as NOT going a "SINGLE STEP beyond" the "DELEGATED powers". What can it act upon? Some power given by
THIS Constitution. If they should be about to pass a law in consequence of this clause, they must pursue some of the "DELEGATED powers",but can by >>>"NO MEANS" depart from them,

>>>(N)OR "ARROGATE" "ANY NEW" powers; for the PLAIN LANGUAGE of the clause is, to give them power to pass laws in order to give "effect" to the >>>"DELEGATED" powers"."

 Exclusive Privileges Prohibition  - Removal of all state or federal born Exclusive Privileges: Systematic dissolution of Corporations, Unions, Federal Tax supported or benefited special interest groups or individuals, and undelegated (under the Original Constitutional Compact) or self perpetuating government bureaucracies. Prohibition of international favors and privileges to groups or individuals. Establishes a State (bills) Universally accepted limited liability for all individuals and private companies  to protect against unlimited and liability suits.

( See
Virginia Declaration of Rights#4, and Virginia Ratifying Convention April 16,1788 on Prohibiting Exclusive Privileges)

 Original Compact and Delegated Powers - Reduction and limitation of federal  and state government bureaucracies and powers. Federal Departments, police and military police limited to within 10 miles square of Washington, DC as established in the
Virginia Ratifying Convention 6-16-1788; Provides for supremacy and enforcement by County and by State to force federal compliance; Recognizes powers to Void and Nullify as established in the Virginia Ratifying Convention 6-16-1788 and Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions; also requiring county commission consent and county judicial approval. Establishes requirement of judges, legislature, commissions and all law officers to have undergone and passed 2 years of Original Compact Constitutional law which includes the Ratifying Conventions and Common Law study. Establishes County Constitutional measures, enforcement and oversight.

 Foreign Policy Limitations  - Establishes Non interventionism Policy;  Sets firm regulations on the federal government, based on historical Constitutional foundations. County and State supremacy and enforcement to force federal compliance, includes powers to Void and Nullify all powers not expressly delegated under the Original Compact. All federal laws subject to county community vote, county commission consent and county judicial approval. Establishes requirement of judges, legislature and county commissions to have undergone 2 years of Original Constitutional Compact law,  Constitutional Ratifying Conventions - Founders Intent study, Common Law study and Adherence to such in Voiding and Nullifying present laws not compliance.

Virginia Ratifying Convention 6-16-1788:

George Nicholas: He then proceeded thus: But, says he, who is to determine the extent of such powers? I say, the same power which, in "ALL" well-regulated communities,determines the "extent" of "legislative" powers.If they exceed these powers, the "JUDICIARY" will declare it "VOID", or else "the PEOPLE" will have a "RIGHT" to declare it "VOID".

Kentucky Resolution 1798: Thomas Jefferson: ".....that it does also believe, that to take from the States all the powers of self-government and transfer them to a general and consolidated government, without regard to the special delegations and reservations solemnly agreed to in "THAT" compact, is "NOT" for the peace, happiness or prosperity of these States; and that therefore this commonwealth is determined, as it doubts not its co-States are, to submit to undelegated, and consequently unlimited powersin >>>"NO""MAN", or "BODY of MEN" on EARTH:  

that in cases of an abuse of the delegated powers, the members of the general government, being chosen by the people, a change by the people would be the constitutional remedy; >>>>>>>BUT, where powers are assumedwhich have NOT been delegated, a >>>"NULLIFICATION" of the act is the "RIGHTFUL REMEDY" thatevery State has a natural RIGHT in cases not within the compact, (casus non fSderis) to NULLIFY of their OWN AUTHORITY"ALL" assumptions of power by others within their limits: thatwithout this "RIGHT", they would be under the dominion, absolute and unlimited, of whosoever might exercise this right of judgment for them:"

Local and StateJudges who do not Nullify on a regular basisANY and ALL undelegated federal powers and bureaucracies are the first problem to be removed; Judges should be given no alternative but to remove all undelegated powers, laws and bureaucracies not granted under the ORIGINAL compact.


 County State Constellation -
Grants Statehood to all Counties to provide adequate local representation and powers. Removes all present state capitol law and powers outside of the county of the present capitol s residence.  County Courthouses assuming placement of new state capitols. The average U.S. county population is about 100,000. Oregon became a state with 40 to 80,000 people; The most heavily populated county of the U.S., Los Angeles County, California, has a population of approximately 9,880,000, which is a larger population than all but eight states of the union. The least populated county is Loving County, Texas, with a population of 67. Kalawao County, Hawaii, a former leper colony, is the next-smallest county, with a population of 147. The power of the county government varies widely from state to state, as does the relationship between counties and incorporated municipal governments. [2] The distribution of power between the state government, county governments, and municipal governments is defined in each state's constitution. See:

1.) To those who think that state representatives would be too numerous by giving statehood to all counties, consider these things: a football stadium holds 60 to 80,000+ screaming individuals when possibly their monthly salary rides on the outcome;


How much more important would it be to have a auditorium 1/10 the size for adequate representation, when your lifetime salary, as well as your very lives hang in the balance of the legislative outcome.

2.) And realize this; If the Federal Legislature stays within the limited delegated powers as directed by the Founders in the Ratifying Conventions,they will have VERY LITTLE to do.

See our 2008 News Letter
Republics and Representation on this very important issue.

 State and Federal Bureaucracy Limitations and Reporting - Establishes government to citizen - population, bureaucracy & labor limitations percentage Ratio. Requires annual public Census for reporting of ALL government employees and locations county, state and federal. Establishes labor salary maximums at no greater than each local county wage average ; Prohibits Union rates or standards; Prohibits setting of standard state or national wage rates; Prohibits professional or hazard wages or consideration;  Establishes county power of yearly dictation of wages (state, county or federal) by vote of the county citizens; includes, reduction, sunset, cease and relinquishment of services or labor by citizen vote at every 4 year election cycle.

Rights of the Colonists - prohibiting governors from seeking what they please); Prohibits legislative or other service from being reelected, or hired to positions that they have increased the salaries, or from being hired to offices that they have either created or increased salaries to; Prohibits relations from acquiring the same. (See James Madison - Ratifying Conventions 1788 stating this Constitutional limitation: 

Virginia Ratifying Convention June 14, 1788.James Madison:"... The Constitution has taken a medium between the two extremes, and perhaps with more wisdom than either the British or the state governments, with respect to their "ELIGIBILITY" to office. They can "FILL" "NO" new "offices" created by themselves, "NOR" "OLD ONES" of which they  "INCREASED THE SALARIES"."


Essential Natural Rights- (Federal and State) Reestablishes and Acknowledges certain inalienable and natural rights as well as Common Law (See Virginia Ratifying Convention 6-16-1788: Prohibition of relinquishment of Essential Natural Rights even by consent. Prohibits any acceptance to another individuals relinquishment of essential natural rights (i.e. Slavery or Voluntary Slavery); Establishes Bill of Rights as Law;  Right to bear arms by citizens in any form or manner, prohibits federal or state from legislating laws infringing upon arms;   Search and Seizure prohibitions; Reestablishes Usury laws to limit  loan percentages and bars attaching or associating Fees to loan or payments to increase interest rates. Establishes privacy rights. Protects Private Property Rights; Establishes State criminal offenses and punishments for government employees and civilian alike. Establishes County elected and controlled Original Compact Constitutional Police Force (OCCPF) for the sole purpose to insure compliance of the essential rights by federal, state and county police, militia, military and law officials; and serve as advocate, protector and go between for citizens; Such force having no powers to direct any action toward the citizen(s), only toward government officials. OCCPF Forces may require government agencies to provide valid warrants, or may prohibit unconstitutional impositions upon private property or persons; OCCPF Positions carry greater legal authority in any situation and the ability to prosecute federal, state and county officials or those they employ. Removes all conflicting state, county, federal law or policies.

Virginia Ratifying Convention 6-16-1788:

George Nicholas: " But the"COMMON LAW"is"NOT EXCLUDED". There is"NOTHING" in "that paper" (APP Note: referring to the US Constitution being considered)  to warrant the assertion." "A bill of rights is only anacknowledgment of the >>>>PREEXISTING claim to rights "IN"(i.e. POSSESSED BY)the people. They belong to us as much as if they had been inserted in the Constitution."

See John Locke on Civil Government and Samuel Adams - Rights of the Colonists staying within, and rightto insist on that which establishes or forms an Original Compact.

 State Sovereignty and Defense (Federal Restriction to arm only and State Responsibility to arm and train)  - Re-institutes state and local militias, private Militias and privateers as intended in the Constitutional Debates and historical definition of militia pre 1776; Requires State and Federal governments to arm and protects right of all individuals, counties and communities to have modern warfare defense and armament at hand and in households; Requires Local Citizen Controlled Armories in every 5 mile by 5 mile area community, adequate to arm and supply all citizens with modern and up to date and effectual weaponry for defense and offense; Prohibits any federal, state or county limitations to private stock holds; Prohibits arms or person registration or numbering; Prohibits county, state or federal government guarding, mapping, requiring knowledge of locations or monitoring of private stock holds or defense measures - including practice and drills; Requires food stocks and rations in every armory.

Passing grade required for graduation. Prohibits state or federal from requiring students or citizens for mandatory military "service" to either state or federal; or through connection with such training. Establishes limitations to federal war powers acts or law; Such based on Original Intent of Founders in Constitutional Debates. Power Ratio set by James Madison 25 to 1 in favor of Citizen Militias;

James Madison who wrote the Constitution together the Bill of Rights:

"The highest number to which a standing army can be carried in any country does not exceed one hundredth part of the souls, or one twenty-fifth (1/25th) part of the number able to bear arms. This portion would not yield, in the United States, an army of more than twenty-five or thirty thousand men. To "these"would be OPPOSED (APP: indicating that the "MILITIA" is to be a "opposing force" to the standing army as well as that of foreign enemies)  a MILITIA amounting to near half a million"CITIZENS" with arms in their HANDS, "officered by men chosen from "AMONG THEMSELVES", (not by government, or the standing army - a true indicator of a MILITIA as defined by the Founders) fighting for "their"(the citizen / militia's) common liberties and united and conducted by government"S" possessing their(the citizen / militia's)affections and confidence. It may well be doubted whether a militiathus circumstanced could ever be conquered by such a "proportion" of regular troops(i.e. standing army). Besides the advantage of being armed, it forms a barrier against the "enterprises of ambition", more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of. The governments of Europe are afraid to trust the people with arms. If they did, the people would surely shake off the yoke of tyranny, as America did.

 Let us not insultthe free and gallant citizens of America with the suspicion that they would be less able to defend the rights of which they would be in actual possession than the debased subjects of arbitrarypower would be to rescue theirs from the hands of their oppressors."

Federal and State Land Title Relinquishment - Establishes procedure for appropriation of federal and state lands to citizens (segment describing this in our Ron Paul Endorsement). Places safeguards against collectivism. Establishes transfer title of all national and state parks within county boundaries to ownership by counties, free of encumbrances. Removes Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management and US Forest Service; Counties and states taking control and ownership of lands and dictating what if any management (as intended in Constitutional Debates). Removes land as a avenue or funnel for federal or state mandates, and or national / international environmental mandates; Prevents federal manipulation of state and county local powers and private property rights. Prevents State manipulation of county powers and private property rights.

Greyston:"...But it may be observed that those extensive countries will be formed into independent states, andthat their  (the state's) CONSENT will be NECESSARY."


We wish to also convey that we are opposed to any arbitrary, indirect, unenumerated tax plans such as the Fairtax or Flat tax; Such taxes will guarantee increases to governments with the increase of the private sector WITHOUT CONSENT AND OVERSIGHT; It will EMPOWER GOVERNMENT.  The Founders understood the necessity of a DIRECT taxation; Taxes that are not arbitrary, but are DEFINED AND ENUMERATED BEFORE THEY ARE GRANTED TO GOVERNMENT.

Further dangers: Such plans combine state and federal taxation or federal taxation into one "sales tax" plan; These are extremely dangerous as it is a "shoehorn" for the Federal government to involve itself with State and local taxation; The federal government will be come a legal "party" to the taxation process and thereby "wrest control" of state local taxation and local regulations. Further, they continue to have federal oversight which retains the federal bureaucracy upon the people within the states.

Federal taxation, collected by the states at ports of call, should be limited to direct import tariffs and always enumerated, to stop once that previous consensual enumeration is satisfied. This is the constitutional remedy.

The federal government must reduce itself so to stay within the limited delegated powers of the "ORIGINAL Compact"; They would then have very little to do. For more on this opposition to unenumerated flat percentage tax systems see:

In areas which people have been drawn in to invest in undelegated federal programs etc., these agreements should be respected, but any further practice should be immediately halted and left to the independent states and communities to consider consensual similar programs if they should so choose.

Also, unless you intend to remove (dissolve and break up) state and federal born "exclusive privileges" - corporations, unions, (income and other) tax supported special interests and undelegated federal and state associated bureaucracies - You will be simply allowing misuse to flourish elsewhere; Why worry about minimum wages when the public is forced to pay maximum prevailing wages to government union employees, and even higher wages though corporate government contracts!

These privileges cannot establish freedom of contract when exclusive state born exclusive privileges of monopoly and cartel were called by the Founders not to exist and to be guarded against
(Virginia Ratifying Convention 6-16-1788); Exclusive privileged trade is not free trade. Oil contracts on federal land are a exclusive privilege which should not exist; The Founders made it clear that any exclusive privilege would be null and void as soon as it left the 10 miles square of WA DC; and that lands within the states, once they became states, would be managed by the states:

Virginia Ratifying Convention 6-16-1788 - Links to full day debate:

Mr. Greyston: "...Adverting to the clause investing Congress with the power of exclusive legislation in a district not exceeding ten miles square, he said he had before expressed his doubts that this {431} district would be the favorite of the generality, and that it would be possible for them to give "exclusive privileges of commerce" to those residing within it. He had illustrated what he said by European examples. It might be said to be impracticable to exercise this power in this manner. Among the various laws and customs which pervaded Europe, there were exclusive privileges and immunities enjoyed in many places. He thought that this ought to be guarded AGAINST; for should such exclusive privileges be granted to merchants residing within the ten miles square, it would be highly injurious to the inhabitants of OTHER PLACES."

(APP: Residing within it or lobbying for favor of exclusive privilege elsewhere to federal land is the same thing. The federal government was expressly LIMITED in AREA to the 10  miles square of WA DC):

Mr. MADISON. "Mr. Chairman: I did conceive, sir, that the clause under consideration was one of those parts which would speak its own praise. It is hardly necessary to say any thing concerning it. Strike it out of the system, and let me ask whether there would not be much larger scope for those dangers. I cannot comprehend that the power of legislating over a "small district", whichCANNOT EXCEED ten miles square, andMAY NOT BE more than ONE mile, will involve the dangers which he apprehends.

If there be any knowledge in my mind of the nature of man, I should think it would be the last thing that would enter into the mind of any man to grant exclusive advantages, in a very circumscribed district, to the prejudice of the community at large.

Mr. Chairman, this clause does "NOT" give Congress power to impede the operation of ANY PART of the Constitution,(N)or to make ANY REGULATION that may affect the interests of the citizens of the Union at large."

"...It could have no operation without the limits of that district. Were Congress to make a law granting them an exclusive privilege of trading to the East Indies, it could have NO effect the moment it would go without THAT place; for their exclusive power is confined to that district. Were they to pass such a law, it would be >>>nugatory; and every member of the community at large could trade to the East Indies as well as the citizens of that district."
