A New Declaration of Independence for 2015


In light of the similarity between the actions of King George III and the current federal government a reissuance of the Declaration of Independence is not only appropriate but very necessary. We the people have suffered long beyond “while evils are sufferable” and have tried diligently to persuade our elected “representatives” to listen to our demands that they adhere to the Constitution but they continually refuse to obey their employers, We the People. Now even the “supreme court” ignores our founding document to impose their personal will on citizens. Bureaucrats unlawfully impose regulations on every aspect of liberty. The despotism at the federal level has reached well beyond acceptance and as a result the federal government must be abolished.

Barack Obama, Congress, and the courts have repeatedly refused to abide by the Constitution, imposing regulations that violate the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 9th, and 10th Amendments. The executive branch under Obama has violated the 1st Amendment by threatening, and taking, legal action against any Christian organization and person that refuses to accept homosexuality as normal human behavior. They have violated the 2ndConstitution 2 Amendment by implementing gun control regulations, such as registration and very subjective background checks that they have no legal right to implement. They have also violated the restrictions placed on the federal government in the enumerated powers clause.   Courts have violated the 4th Amendment by upholding law enforcement seizing money and assets without a citizen being charged with or even suspected of a crime. Barack Obama is using tax dollars to support islamic groups that have declared war on our nation, has ignored immigration rules to allow illegal alien invaders free entry into our land and is providing said invaders with welfare, social security, and Medicare benefits to the detriment of citizens who have paid into those programs for years. Obama refuses to acknowledge the threat of islam and calls honorably discharged veterans and other citizens potential domestic terrorists because they demand that he and congress abide by the Constitution. Obama also issues executive orders by the dozens, orders that assume powers not bequeathed to the office, including orders that by-pass the duties of Congress. https://thehill.com/policy/energy-environment/243179-obama-asserts-Bible, flag, guns, Our rightspower-over-small-waterways). He has also issued executive orders that subvert the rights guaranteed the 2nd Amendment rights of citizens, another blatant act of treason.

Obama sends soldiers to war under rules of engagement that make victory impossible and puts those soldiers in unnecessary danger of death or serious injury while giving the enemy aid in the form of money, arms, and propaganda. These are serious offenses that constitute treason against the nation he is supposed to serve as chief executive and commander in chief. The actions of Barak Obama are inexcusable and detrimental to the security and well-being of citizens and the nation as a whole, and are just cause for his removal from office yet Congress refuses to do their duty under the Constitution to put a stop to the treasonous actions of a runaway dictator. Obama has stated that he can rule with his pen and phone, without the consent of Congress or We the People.

The supreme court has violated the 9th and 10th Amendments by telling states they cannot follow state Constitutions, and the biblical tenets upon which this nation was Holy biblefounded, that outline marriage status; and have negated the prosecutions of illegal alien invaders that violate immigration laws. Congress and the current regime refuse to rein in these usurpations of judicial conduct, violations of their oaths of office.

Obamacare penalties, declared legitimate taxes by the supreme court, originated in the Senate, a clear violation of section 7 of the Constitution that says all tax laws shall be initiated in the House of Representatives. Obamacare was passed in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve, using reconciliation, a tactic which is not appropriate in that case. Barack Obama, with the acquiescence of Congress, has Il Duce Obamaundermined the sovereignty of this nation by bowing to the united nations and countries who seek to dominate our nation. Obama and Congress seek to unlawfully disarm American citizens by agreeing to abide by united nations edicts that deny 2nd Amendment rights to American citizens based on following international edicts of tyranny. These actions clearly violate their oath of office and their responsibilities under the Constitution. Obama has divided the nation based on race and has sought to disarm the populace by illegally providing automatic weapons to Mexican drug cartels and using said weapons sales to attempt to subvert the 2nd Amendment rights of American citizens, God given rights guaranteed by our founders in the Constitution. The supreme court has recently said states cannot decide who may or may not be married, clearly not their prerogative under the Constitution based on the enumerated powers listed.

Based on the grievances listed, and more issues not listed, it is time to throw off the bonds of tyranny and establish a new nation based on the original Constitution with newly Eagle Changing Things I Cannotg Acceptelected representatives, term limits established, criminal penalties for those who violate the oath of office, and all current elected and appointed officials being forever banned from holding any position in the new federal government. I also submit that judges should be elected by the people instead of appointed by politicians according to political agendas as is currently the case, and should also be subject to term limits and penalties for abusing or ignoring their oath of office. Some think the answer is an Article V convention but those who ignore what we have now will also ignore the results of an Article V convention and likely abolish what we have now.

This current tyranny did not start with Obama. In 2001 a Republican controlled Congress Eagle-We Will Not Complypassed the misnamed “Patriot Act” and it was signed by fellow Republican George W. Bush so this is not a partisan issue against Barak Obama and Democrats. The “Patriot Act” essentially abolished “Posse Commitatus” as a part of the U S Constitution. What we have is an ongoing bi-partisan act of tyranny on the part of both Democrats and Republicans allied against the ideals of the founding fathers and the citizens of this nation to rule over us as they see fit.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

  1. For the support of this new Declaration of Independence, for the sake of this recurrence of the True United States of America with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, I pledge my life, my wealth, and my veteran’s honor to those who sign herein; that 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 PROPERTY –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.

    Even if I must do so alone….

  2. I would support this Declaration gladly. Only by reverting to the original intent and document of The United States Constitution can there be any lasting hope of saving our country.
    The points made in the above Declaration are valid and truthful points. We have failed in our responsibilities as citizens and stewards of our government, letting apathy and allowing progressive ideology steer our course.

    1. Brenda and Derrell, thank you very much for your support, our nation needs it very much. Please share this with everyone you know and let’s see what we can do to restore this nation as a “shining city on a hill” that God an be proud of once again!!!

  3. Bob, this is excellent!!! The (OUR) Declaration is written in plain English with clean intent. There are no ambiguous words to consider….even for SCOTUS. As you and others have done…..I renew my pledge to stand in the wisdom of our founders and defend this Declaration and the Constitution of the United States of America with pride.

  4. Derrell, Brenda, AND Bob, We are with you . Time for a change and/or the Lord JESUS to come back. John Gibney

  5. I pity the sorry souls who would stand in the way of the restoration of the Republic, which may be more than well under way before the next 4th of July. It will be done.

    To those devoted to sedition: Ask not For Whom The Bell Tolls.

    No Amnesty, No Immunity, No Prisoners.

  6. I dont know what two old folks can do, but i wholeheartedly endorse this declaration. As ex military, i guess one more battle is in order.

    1. Us “old folks” will do what we can, adequate or not, but we will not surrender to tyranny. I have lived 65 years in freedom and will not die as a slave to tyrants!!!!!

  7. I like it Bob. Let’s continue this line of patriotism. I suggest we ask everyone to make copies of this most recent Declaration and also the original. To have the best emotional effect, we should ask every American to sign their name at the bottom, just as our founder signed. Everyone talks like they love America, but now comes their opportunity to make history and place THEIR John Hancock on the next chapter of history.

    Is it a Declaration or a petition? I don’t know. But a few million signatures on a Declaration of Independence has to be more powerful than clicking on Whitehouse.gov


  8. Mike, I would like to see millions of Americans send this and the original to their congressman and both senators with a firm statement of affirmation and support of it

  9. Bob, I love it and agree with it 100%. And yes, those who are clamoring for an Article V Con Con are playing right into the progressives hands. A convention only opens the Constitution for utter destruction at the hands of the left. Guaranteed the first amendment to be abolished will be the 2nd as it is the protector of all the rest. I did not fight for the honor of country to lose my rights as a civilian. The founding fathers were the most enlightened men to ever walk the earth. They created a document for all time and it is only through apathy of those who have never known tyranny that we are in this shape now.

    1. Thomas, I don’t have any objection to an Article V convention of states but I believe it is a waste of effort as those who ignore what we have now will also ignore anything we add!!!!! I am in favor of abolishing the federal government entirely but keeping the Constitution and removing the batch of tyrants and getting loyal people in office, without the bloated bureaucracy and congressional staffs that pollute the process. God Bless You.

      1. Bob Russell you are right on the money. We have a treasonous treacherous government and lawless leader that is illegal illegitimate and liberal and lost. Time is ran out for our Great Nation. We all seem to be wondering how and what to actually do yet most of us know what has to be done. This crisis has been a long time in the making and the CFR is behind it all as well as the bankers who are behind the Federal Reserve. Its time to restore the constitution and reclaim this country from the minority in control

    1. no, we don’t, and fuehrer Obama and his minions coming after our guns with the silent blessing of the traitors in congress will be what starts the 2nd Revolutionary War!!!!!
