In keeping with the First Declaration, I only changed the orientation toward our Government against the people and updated the train of abuses. I welcome any additions or suggested changes.
The Second Declaration of Independence. The unanimous Declaration of the Citizens of the 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 of 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 Americans; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present US Govt is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these People. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
They have refused their Assent to Laws the most wholesome and necessary for the public good such as enforcing our borders and maintaining the rule of law over our markets.
They have corrupted our Governors and State Legislatures with unconstitutional spending that supplants the State's duties and obligations and prevents Laws of immediate and pressing importance, to accomplish a functioning market that serves the People rather than the corrupted govt. They have suspended or manipulated the Law's operation: and when so suspended or manipulated, has utterly neglected to attend to their Constitutional duties.
They have refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of 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. This is done thru the coercive advantage of government that steals from it's people and then uses those monies against us directly and indirectly through their cronies, to drown us out, to persecute us and to eat all the fruits of our labor.
Both parties gather together as legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records thru bureaucratic impenetrable obstacles, for the sole purpose of fatiguing us into compliance with their abuses and usurpations.
Thru political money laundering, govt and their complicit cronies have dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness their invasions on the rights of the people, thru coercion, threats and the tyrannical force of the State.
They have refused for a long time 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 with their hostile interventions abroad and their intrusions, thefts and usurpations at home,
They have 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 migrations hither, and raising the pernicious conditions of new Appropriations of Lands and market usurpations that denies Americans the true market cost of land, products and services they would otherwise be able to purchase thru self-reliant employment thus disinheriting millions from the opportunities freedom and limited government provide.
They have obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing their Assent to Laws for establishing and maintaining Judiciary powers thru threats of Court packing, intimidation and corruption.
They have made Judges dependent on their Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
They have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance.
They have kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies thru collusion with our corrupt legislatures. Waged war without Congressional approval who have made clear they too have abdicated their role to the support of tyranny.
They have affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power and it's Constitutional constraints, answerable only to the monied interests that support their reelections and further their own plundering and accumulation of power.
They have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving their Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed bureaucrats among us for the purposed of harassing us thru unconstitutional administrative law:
For protecting their own servants, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Abuses and Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States. Mock Congressional oversight does nothing to remedied the steady 2nd degree murder committed by monopoly govt services or crony monopoly services and impoverishes us:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world by our Govt's use of our money to denies us market access thru crony subsidy, redistribution, mandates, monopoly and protections:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For denying due process by killing Americans abroad not engaged on the battle field.
For abolishing the free System of Laws in America, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing more absolute rule in America:
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.
They have abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of their Protection and waging War against us thru their misuse of govt and directly enabling lawlessness.
They have plundered our treasuries, ravaged our citizens thru the constant failures of monopoly, corrupted our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
They are at this time transporting Armies to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, to overthrow foreign govts not to their liking and whose economy or possessions they desire... already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation...causing the deaths of hundreds of thousands and displacing millions.
They have enticed foreign children, drug traffickers, the sex and slave trade and those who want to live off of our labor to enter America illegally because they profit from the human trafficking thru depressed wages, drown us in debt and devalue our savings to keep us unable to mount a defense as Americans languish in long term unemployment.
They have excited domestic conflict fueled thru their pernicious theft with vicious propaganda and the active destruction of industry and private property, by pitting one American against another and is an 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 President or Congress 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 attentions to our American bethren. 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, Citizens 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 Authority of the good People of these States, solemnly publish and declare, That these United States are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the false choices tyrannical govt offer, and that all political connection between them and us be forever with held, and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, we have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish free of govt manipulation markets for 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.
