We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident …

 

 

   Given the current state of our union and the endless progressive “long march” through our institutions that has culminated in the election of our first “black president” and possibly in a few days our first “woman president” both of whom are shining examples of the “Leviathan State” , we thought that perhaps it is time to review our amazing origins and make note of just how far we have fallen.

   Below the reader with find the complete , unabridged text of the most important political document in the history of the free world . We have endeavored to give current and up to date examples of the grievances our Founding Fathers sought to eliminate in declaring their independence from a distant , unresponsive and out-of-touch government .

    These examples are available to be read by clicking on the links throughout the text of the historic document below as well as biographies of all those brave men who dared put their signatures to paper and effectively flipped the bird to King George III and Parliament in defiance of what at the time was the most powerful nation on earth

The Unanimous Declaration
Of The Thirteen 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 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 men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to 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 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. 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 sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. 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 refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

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.

  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.  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.

  He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

  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.

  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.

  He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.

  He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

  He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.

  He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislature.

  He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to civil power.

  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:

  For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

  For protecting them, by mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states:

  For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world:

  For imposing taxes on us without our consent:

  For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury:

  For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses:

  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 in these colonies:

  For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:

  For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

  He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.

 He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

  He 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 and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.

  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.

  He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is 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. 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.

  Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable 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 kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. 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.

  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; 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; 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. 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.

   The men listed above risked their lives , liberty and property in order that we might live in a land unfettered by a repressive , unaccountable leviathan . For 80 years or so that was more or less the case but we have been backsliding into tyranny for over a century and a half . While educated minds can debate the origins of our decline the results of said journey are undeniable and thanks to our present government have been brought to the fore . 

   If you , dear readers and lovers of liberty , have found anything of use in the above post please be kind enough to pass it along via the web and social media as you see fit . Thank you for taking the time to explore this sincere attempt at highlighting our descent into tyranny and possibly educating future generations on the dangers imposed upon our legacy by the ever-expanding State .

If this post can become viral perhaps it will facilitate an awakening amongst our youth and help to identify a new cadre of leaders such as this nation produced in the 18th century . Lord knows , America needs them .

 

 

 

 

We Could Use A Bit Of Insurrection Against The Established Order

 

 

 

” I appeared on NPR on Wednesday and was surprised to hear a caller say that Sen. Ted Cruz should be charged with sedition. “I’m really baffled by the fact that the discussion has not ever reached the point where charges of sedition should be brought up against him for conspiring and bullying others to work with him to undermine the American economy … full faith and credit,” the caller said. “He’s done so much damage to the standing of the United States in the world. And if you read the Sedition Act, it seems like it really applies.”

A colleague on the panel, the Wall Street Journal’s Sudeep Reddy, assured the caller, “There is no possibility of that.” And the conversation moved on. But it turns out that in a few corners of the left, there are activists who would like to see Cruz, along with other Republicans and conservatives who have expressed strong opposition to Obamacare, charged with inciting rebellion against the United States government.

After Cruz and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin appeared together last weekend on the National Mall, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow reported the event in front of a screen with pictures of Cruz and Palin and the title LATEST SEDITION. Maddow did not utter the word itself, but viewers certainly got the message.”

 

 

Here is a legal definition of :

 

 SEDITION

” An insurrectionary movement tending towards treason, but wanting an overt act; attempts made by meetings or speeches, or by publications, to disturb the tranquillity of the state. The distinction between “sedition” and “treason” consists in this: that though the ultimate object of sedition is a violation of the public peace, or at least such a course of measures as evidently engenders it. yet it does not aim at direct and open violence against the laws or the subversion of the constitution. Alis. Crim. Law, 5S0. In Scotch law. The raising commotions or disturbances in the state. It Is a revolt against legitimate authority. Ersk. Inst 4, 4, 14. In English law. Sedition is the offense of publishing, verbally or otherwise, any words or document with the intention of exciting disaffection, hatred, or contempt against the sovereign, or the government and constitution of the kingdom, or either house of parliament, or the administration of justice. or of exciting his majesty’s subjects to attempt, otherwise than by lawful means, the alteration of any matter in church or state, or of exciting feelings of ill will and hostility between different classes of his majesty’s subjects. Sweet. And see State v. Shepherd, 177 Mo. 205. 76 S. W. 79, 99 Am. St. Rep. 624.”

 

 

   The above words regarding the “crime” of sedition would seem to run quite contrary to the spirit of America in that they can easily be construed to prohibit any kind of disagreement in the political arena . The Left can revel in that language if they so choose , but the following words would seem to take precedence from an American point of view .

 

 

 

 

”  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 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 men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to 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 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. 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.

   The words above should be required reading these days and that is why the progressives have systematically tried to eliminate the instruction of American history in the indoctrination centers we refer to as public schools . For those of you who do not recognize the above words , they are the opening paragraphs of the document that changed the world , the Declaration of Independence.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Defy the King! Electrifying Speech At Pro-Gun Rally In CT

” In a rousing speech which is sure to inspire pro-gun rights advocates across the nation — and enrage those who choose to limit the Second Amendment — Mike Vanderboegh took to the Connecticut State Capital yesterday. Speaking at the Connecticut Citizens Defense League’s Second Amendment rally, Vanderboegh — one of the men who broke the Fast & Furious debacle, declared “civil war is starring us in the face.”

Krauthammer: ‘Unconstitutional’ Gun Confiscation ‘Would Cause Insurrection In The Country’ [VIDEO]

 

 

 

” The U.S. Constitution precludes aggressive gun control laws like those in Britain or Australia, Krauthammer said. (RELATED VIDEO: Pat Buchanan warns of revolution if government attempts to ban and confiscate firearms)

“We have a 200-year history and culture of gun ownership,” he continued. “We have a Second Amendment. … So unless you are willing to confiscate [guns] — which would be unconstitutional, and would cause insurrection in the country, [as] Australia did — these things will not have an effect, except at the margins. That is the tragedy here.” “

Obama Would Call on Military to Disarm Americans During National Emergency

 

 

” The blueprint for how Americans would be disarmed during a declared civil emergency is contained in an Army manual that outlines a plan to confiscate firearms to prevent them falling into the hands of rioters or dissidents.

 

Obama Would Call on Military to Disarm Americans During National Emergency 020113drill

Given the imminent introduction of Senator Dianne Feinstein’s draconian gun control legislation, which would instantly criminalize millions of gun owners in the United States if passed, concerns that the Obama administration could launch a massive gun confiscation effort have never been greater.

In July 2012, the process by which this could take place was made clear in a leaked US Army Military Police training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” (PDF) dating from 2006. Similar plans were also outlined in an updated manual released in 2010 entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations. “

 

Gun Confiscation

 

  This piece in the Washington Times brings to the mainstream a hypothetical scenario of the military crushing domestic dissent .

  Regular readers will recognize this theoretical from previous posts at InfoWars and other websites but to our knowledge this is the first article on the subject in the Mainstream Media

  Check it out and note that the article has generated over 3000 comments .

   What do our readers think ? Will American troops fire on American citizens and if so , what will the ramifications be ?

  “Imagine Tea Party extremists seizing control of a South Carolina town and the Army being sent in to crush the rebellion. This farcical vision is now part of the discussion in professional military circles.”
