A Declaration of Restoration
A minimal respect for the opinions of mankind requires that we should
declare the causes and principles which impel us to renew our
government and to assert the need for a restored Constitution for a United
States of America.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all humans are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,
that among those rights are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness in
their own Possessions, Convictions, and Deeds.
We assert that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among
mankind, which governments derive their just powers only from the
consent of the governed and from the tacit favor of Divine Providence
toward that People.
We assert that, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of
those ends, it is the duty and right of the People to alter or to abolish it,
and to institute changed government, laying its foundation on such
principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as they deem most
likely to effect their Liberty, Contentment, and Safety.
Prudence dictates that governments long established should not be
changed only for light or transient causes; and accordingly all experience
has shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while those evils are
sufferable, than to right matters by radically abolishing the forms to
which they are accustomed. Yet when a long train of abuses and
usurpations, pursuing always the same object of oppression, evinces a
design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right and duty
to throw off such a government, and to provide a different one for their
future and for the benefit of their progeny.
Such has been the patient sufferance of the chartered States of America
and of its People; and such is now the grave necessity which constrains
them to alter the former federal government. The history of this present

2 of 6

federal government is one of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having

in direct object the establishment of a pervasive Tyranny over the People.
To support this allegation, let these facts be submitted to candid eyes - to
wit, the federal governments of a former United States HAVE:
~ imposed the idea that human rights may be defined by some
governmental body, thereby ignoring a basic principle upon which the
original United States was founded, that those rights issue from the
Creator, and may be ascertained by examining His actions and words;
~ elevated the interests of factions, and of synthetic and corporate
entities, above the human rights of natural persons;
~ enacted laws which purposefully and knowingly infringe upon the
rights of the People, and which abrogate the established laws of the land,
as those rights are recognized by the Bill of Rights and as those laws are
defined by the entire Constitution;
~ moreoever left those laws to be interpreted, thus rejected, adopted, or
even amended in effect, by federal courts, thereby establishing a
gate-keeping control by unelected persons, which power was delegated
only to elected persons by the People;
~ appointed activist judges who reinterpret the Constitution, not
according to its actual text nor any documented and published Original
Intent, but as if it were a living document, thus one open to whatever
implementation they deem may accord with their personal preferences
and political views;
~ assumed powers not delegated by the People over the States, asserting
that any law passed by a federal legislature and interpretated by federal
judges also applies to the States, thus abrogating the powers of those
States as these are recognized in the Bill of Rights;
~ established central banks independent of, and irresponsible to the
States, organizations which work for interests other than those of the

3 of 6

~ destroyed a formerly-constitutional currency, one once based on

valuable metals, and have instead established fiat currencies whose values
are based solely on a trust in government;
~ moreover have breached that trust, by allowing central banks to set
monetary policies independent of the scrutiny of the People, and free of
effective accountability to the States;
~ borrowed and spent at such rates, and accumulated such debt, that
federal regimes have sought to obligate the People and their progeny to
suffer the consequences of that irresponsibility for an indefinite future;
~ misused the great power of federal agencies entrusted with the
important task of policing and enforcing a tax law installed by a putative
Amendment to the Constitution, in order to direct and control political
views and actions among the People;
~ subverted State Charters, set at no effect the most valuable laws of the
People, and altered fundamentally the forms of government without
recourse to the Constitutional amendment process;
~ attempted to disarm the People, seeking to make them vulnerable to
criminals and unable to effectively challenge any form of tyranny any
regime or its successors attempt to impose;
~ refused to uniformly enforce any laws designed to beneficially control
and promote immigration;
~ alienated the employments of the People to foreign lands, causing and
increasing impoverishments among the People;
~ elevated federal officials far higher than those they affect to represent,
by enacting laws which cannot apply to those officals and agents, and by
enacting laws which afford those federal personnel privileges at the
expense of the People;
~ sought to create, and have succeeded in creating, classes of career elites
who are in effect aristocrats, who cannot be truly representative of the

~ moreover erected multitudes of new offices and forms of bureaucracies,

and sent forth bands of heavily armed officers to harass the People;
~ sought to remove the Diety from public life, seeking to destroy the
historic faiths upon which human rights and responsibilities depend;
~ made efforts to subdue the populations of the States to policies dictated
by a United Nations, a body of foreign delegates who are not elected by,
nor representative of, the People;
~ and, enacted many other unConstitutional laws:
For imposing taxes and regulations without the People's informed consent,
For establishing compulsory social and family interventions,
For assuming the power to deprive the People of the benefits of trial by jury,
For transporting persons beyond seas to be imprisoned for pretended
For establishing standing military and para-military forces, and moreover
using such forces as false branches of civil law enforcement,
For keeping armies and paramilitary forces among the People in times of
peace without the consent of State legislatures or the People,
For making military forces independent of, and superior to, the civil power of
State governors and elected sheriffs,
For protecting members of para-military forces, by mock trials, and by
prevented and perjured testimonies, from punishments for those murders
and brutalities which they commit on the inhabitants of the States and of
annexed and occupied Territories,
For using invented and novel issues as means to divide the People,
formenting divisions about things which no government ought to have
authority over in any case,
For subverting language, altering the meanings of historic words and
phrases, thereby dictating debates in dishonest terms so as to subvert
public opinions,
For squandering taxes and military materiel in aid of foreign States which
are hostile to natural human rights, and which aid in many cases actively
works against the interests of the People,

For sending armed forces to kill, die, and suffer permanent injury on foreign
soils without formal declarations of war, and for keeping them from full victory
in exchange for foreign political favors.

During these oppressions we have humbly petitioned for redress. Our

repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury and
contumacious insult. A government whose character is thus marked by
every act which defines tyranny is unfit to govern a free people.
We have repeatedly warned those governments about their Legistlative
and Executive attempts to extend unwarrantable jurisdictions. We have
reminded them of the circumstances of our country's founding and our
shared kinsmanship. We have appealed to moral principles, to native
justice and magnanimity, and we have implored them by the ties of
common ancestries to disavow their usurpations, which would inevitably
destroy our connections and liberties.
They have been deaf to voices for justice and consanguinity. We must,
therefore, acknowledge the necessity of a restoration of Constitutional
government, by announcing our separation from them, and hold them, as
we hold the rest of mankind, in War, as Enemies, and, in Peace, as mere
We, therefore, the representatives of the People and of the Chartered
States of America, in private homes, voluntary groups, and conventions
assembled, while appealing to the Supreme Judge of the Universe as a
Witness for the merit of our intentions, do, in the name and by the
natural authority of the Peoples of these States, solemnly publish and
~ That the States ratifying that Constitution established in 1787 are, and
of right ought to be, free and independent States;
~ that they and their Peoples are absolved from any allegiance to a
current federal government;
~ that all political connections between these States and the entities of
Washington, District of Columbia, are totally dissolved;

~ that a renewed federal union and capital must be located elsewhere

among these States, it convened and constructed according to that
restored Constitution of 1787 and honoring in spirit the Agreement that
created a former federal destrict;
~ and, that, insofar as the Bill of Rights recognizes such Rights, these
States have power to levy War on tyrannical States, to contract
Agreements, both for Peace and Commerce, to levy transaction Taxes,
and to do all Acts by independent States which implement their own
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
Skills, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
