Declaration Of Independence, II

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. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refuted his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. Assent to Laws is allowing self-governance, the Crown was in effect reserving the right to overrule any law they tried to pass. Take a look at what is happening in our nation. Are the Several States allowed to create their own laws? Or does the FedGov override them at its pleasure?

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. What we have now is a system of activist judges and a Congress that believes their laws to be the highest and will overrule any State that passes legislation against their will.

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. The "right" or representation in our current Legislature is a joke. It doesnt exist if you arent well-heeled

He 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 his measures. No need for this as the FedGov simply forces or blackmails the States to do its bidding.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. Today such groups are simply ignored, partly because what passes for "rights" these days is nothing more than libertinism.

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 mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. The dangers we see now are terrorism against which the only defense, as proven by Israel, is an armed populace. We are denied that by some 20,000 laws against various firearms and their carriers.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. Today we simply invite them over by lack of a border. No need to naturalize them, simply put them to workat the lowest pay possible and then pretend the problem doesnt exist.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers. Really now, who needs judges when they simply rubberstamp what the Gov wants? Or better yet, create new powers by penumbras.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. Somehow activists judges are able to retain their positions, but rule against the gov and you will find yourself without a job or a prospect of getting one elsewhere.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance. Can anyone even begin to name all the different government departments there are? There are some 40 Million such jobs in the U.S.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures. Standing armies are expressly prohibited in the Constitution. This is why their budget is never more than 4 years out even tho the remainder of the budget is 10 years.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power. Hasnt happened in a widespread way, but every year a poll is done to determine the attitude of our Military and whether or not they would act against Citizens. Each year that poll goes more and more against us, the Citizens

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation: How many treaties? Uncountable. The U.N., LOST, Carnivore, etc etc.

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: Again, standing armies. Could also be construed as local police.

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States: Wow, can a cop ever be tried? 99 out of 100 walk with paid leave even.

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: Idiotic protective tariffs. Steel, Cotton, Sugar. We pay three times the world average for sugar because of our Gov. We also pay extra for milk for the same reason.

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent: IRS anyone? Amendment 16 did not pass, and even if it did it didnt confer any new power on the Gov to tax. Yet it continually attempts to tax us.

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury: Now we have a system wherewith most Citizens get to appear in front of a District Attorney, or a fake court like the US Tax Court.

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences: We just transport them now in an attempt to keep prisoners from having any Rights.

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring 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 The FedGov has created a "Federal Territory" that resides in the exact same boundaries as does the State. The Territory also happens to have the same name, only spelled in all Caps. i.e. Colorado becomes COLORADO, or the proper abbreviation Colo. to CO

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments: We are now a democracy. The Constitution demands that we have a representative republic. It is this no longer.

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. Not suspended, it again comes down to coersion and blackmail

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us. The USA PATRIOT ACT (I &II), Carnivore, the IRS. Against these we have no protection. The courts side with the Government, Congress sides with the Government and so does ourPresident

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. While the LOST treaty could cover for #1, #s 2&3 our pretty much out tho we should remember WACO and Ruby Ridge. The destroying of lives is ongoing. Onerous regulation, back-breaking taxation, the recent Kelo decision by SCOTUS...

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation. Not too many mercs inside this country and if they are here they sure are quiet.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. Really inapplicable at this time. The FedGov is not openly fighting against its Citizenry.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured 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. Not the "savage" Indians but rather the savage Muslims who also kill 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. We The People has been petitioning for Redress for years now. I am one of those petitioning. We have recieved no answer back, altho we have been lied to on several occasions. What we get instead, is silence at best, or illegal tricks in the Courts.

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.
I dare say that a government so marked is unfit to be ruler of a free people, not just a prince.
