Part I: Introduction
History is extremely clear when it teaches us that "if the Declaration of Independence justified the secession from the British Empire of three millions of subjects in 1776, it was not seen why it would not justify the secession of five million of Southerners from the Union in 1861" nor for that matter today!
It is clear to all who will research correctly that "the founders of the American republic never conferred, nor intended to confer, sovereignty upon either their State of Federal Government." And, it may further be found, that the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the united States clearly says: "The powers not delegated to the united States by the Constitution nor prohibited by it to the States are reserved to the States respectively, or to the PEOPLE!" It is not the government of the united States that is clearly declared to be Supreme, but the Constitution and the laws and treaties made in accordance with it.
Part II: Announcement
Thus, the United Confederate Secessionists do hereby declare and with knowledge of our action as being spiritually, historically and politically correct, we do put forth the following:
Part III: Purpose
1) That the States of which the American Union was formed, from the moment when they emerged from their colonial or provincial condition, became severally sovereign, free, and independent States--not one State or Nation;
2) That the Union formed under the Articles of Confederation was a compact between the States, in which these attributes of 'sovereignty, freedom, and independence,' were expressly asserted and guaranteed;
3) That, in forming the 'more perfect Union' of the Constitution, afterward adopted, the same contracting powers formed an amended compact, without any surrender of these attributes of sovereignty, freedom, and independence, either expressed or implied: on the contrary, that, by the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution, limiting the power of the Government to its express grants, they distinctly guarded against the presumption of a surrender of anything by implication;
4) That political sovereignty resides, neither in individual citizens, nor in unorganized masses, nor in fractional subdivisions of a community, but in the people of an organized political body;
5) That no 'republican form of government,' in the sense in which the expression is used in the Constitution, and was generally understood by the founders of the Union--whether it be the government of the State or of a confederation of States--is possessed of any sovereignty whatsoever, but merely exercises certain powers delegated by the Sovereign authority that conferred them;
6) That 'the people' who organized the first confederation, the people who dissolved it, the people who ordained and established the Constitution which succeeded it, the only people, in fine, known or referred to in the phraseology of that period--whether the term was used collectively or distributively--were the people of the respective States, each setting separately and with absolute independence of the others;
7) That, in forming and adopting the Constitution, the States, or the people of the States--terms which, when used with reference to acts performed in a sovereign capacity, are precisely equivalent to each other--formed a new Government, but no new people: and that, consequently, no new sovereignty was created--for sovereignty in an American republic can belong only to a people, never to a government--and that the Federal Government is entitled to exercise only the powers delegated to it by the people of the respective States;
8) That the term 'people', in the preamble of the Constitution and in the Tenth Amendment, is used distinctively; that the only "people of the united States" known to the Constitution are the people of each State in the Union; that no such political community or corporate unit as one people of the united States then existed, has ever been organized, or yet exists; and that no political action by the people of the united States in the aggregate has ever taken place, or ever can take place, under the Constitution.
Part IV: Declaration of Petition
WHEN in the Course of Human Events, it becomes necessary for one man or woman to dissolve the political, religious, ethnic and moral bands which have connected him or her with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature’s God entitled him or her, a descent respect to the opinions of mankind/womankind requires me to declare the causes which impel me this just and complete separation.
I HOLD these Truths to be Self-Evident: that all people are created EQUAL, that I am endowed by the Creator (which only I can define) with certain unalienable rights which consist for every human being--no matter what color, sex, political or religious thought and practice, or nationality. Among these Creator-endowed Rights there are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. That only I am capable of interpreting the True and Full-Extent of these RIGHTS! That to secure these Rights, I am a government instituted within myself, deriving my Just Powers from Within.
THAT whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is my Right to alter or abolish it, to sever any and all relations with that government, to no longer pay it any allegiance, to institute a new government and lay its Foundation on such Principles. Principles upon which shall seem most likely to effect my Safety and Happiness.
WHEN a long train of Abuses and Usurpation’s shows forth a design to reduce my life to one under absolute Despotism, it is my Right, it is my Duty, to sever our relationship. I object to the absolute Tyranny over me and my Rights to live in a world of Peace. I object to the infringement upon my Rights to the freedom of speech, religion, press and privacy. I object to the absolute beastly manner in which I am numbered as a means of identification. I object to the wars raged by corporate entities for the purpose of greed and power. I object to the savage raping of this planet upon which I and everyone else must rely upon for our survival. I object to the subliminal manner wherein we become pawns within the mighty game of corporate brain-washing--thereby duping the people into believing in and supporting corporate wars. I object to being governed by any man or woman who does not represent my safety or security and regards their own will to be that of mine. I object to the double-standard of taxation by a legalized Mafia of corporate heavily armed guards whose purpose it is to fund these wars fought for corporate gain. I object to the manner in which the courts deal out justice with a total and complete unconcern for the spirit of the law. I object to the building and constrution of a One World Government through the United Nations called the New World Order. I object to the usurpation of those Democrats or Republicans or other members of government alike who are Socialist in thought, word, deed and action. I object to the gradual and continual loss of my public, personal and private liberties under the guise of "fighting terrorism." Further, I object to the war against my Confederate heritage, history, culture and theology in an effort to eradicate it from the civilized world.
I, THEREFORE, appeal to the Supreme Judge of Heaven and Earth for the rectitude of my intention, do, in the name, and by the authority of my Self, solemnly publish and henceforth declare:
THAT I AM to be free and independent, that I am absolved from all allegiance to the United States, or any other government that now supports the policies of corporate war for greed. That I will not seek to take up arms against any said government or representatives of that government unless the safety of myself or my household shall be threatened and all therein. That at that time I shall arm myself in whatever means is available and practice the art of vigilantism in the protection of myself, my family and my Earthly goods. That I will faithfully seek with all my might to teach the doctrine of Peaceful co-habitation upon this planet by all living forms. That I will not at any time volunteer my support toward the perpetration of their corporate wars nor the building of their New World Order. That I will, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Principles upon which this declaration is founded. That I will grant to others the same rights to which I claim that Peace may reign upon the Earth.
WITH a firm reliance upon the protection of the Divine Providence, I pledge to this freedom my life, my fortune and my integrity.
Part V. Conclusion
"Usurpations of the Federal Government have been presented, not in a spirit of hostility, but as a warning to the people against the dangers by which their liberties are beset." Bearing this in mind, we, the members of the United Confederate Secessionists, and the signers of this petition, do hereby assert that the country known as the Confederate States of America still exists in actuality and reality and is a conquered nation now being held at gun point with malice and threat thereof, and that it is high time the people of the Confederate States of America again reassert their national right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
That being, we the members of the United Confederate Secessionists and the undersigned of this petition demand our country be returned to us and that all Federal occupying politicians, troops, police, officials and courts be removed at once! That the ruling body of the Confederate States of America again be returned to the people of said country to have and to do as handed down in the Constitution of the Confederate States of America.
