When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have
connected with a government, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws
of Nature, and Natures God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the
causes which impel them to replace their government.
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 right to live in a just and honorable society. 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 abolish
it, and to institute a new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and the organizing its power 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 shone 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 duty to throw off such Government and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such
has been the patient sufferance of this nation and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems
of Government. The history of the present government is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in the
direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over our nation. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid
world of failure and faults of our leaders and our present form of government.
They have allowed our electoral process to become a mockery and have allowed honor and political power to go to the
people with the most money.
They have failed to provide true equality to the people regardless of race, religion, or sex.
They have allowed our tax system to become corrupted and bloated and have instituted so many levels of taxation that
the common citizen can hardly keep track of them all.
They have slowly and steadily eroded our rights to privacy.
They have made our idea of justice for all a joke and allowed our justice system to become so broken and corrupted
that the rich and powerful can buy their own justice and the poor average citizen does without.
They have failed to properly maintain social services such as social security and medicare that was promised to the
They have failed a great trust that the people have placed in them to see that our children are properly educated.
They have failed to redeem their promises of affordable healthcare to its citizens.
They have failed to generate a quality immigration program and it has failed to resolve the illegal immigration problem.
They have failed in its trust to protect their citizens from terrorist, both foreign and domestic.
They have failed to keep the military strong enough to perform the tasks it is given and to make sure those tasks were
just and honorable.
.They have scattered their honor upon the alter of political expediency.
They have failed to adequately protect our environment and keep trying to reduce what environmental protection we have. We
the people have a right to a safe and healthy environment for us and our children to live in.
They have lost their ability to foresee and plan for the future and are barely able to events as they happen.
For years the American Public has pleaded to have these and other problems solved and for years the government and
politicians wanting to be elected have promised to fix this problems, however the problems remain unsolved and their promises
to fix them go unfulfilled after the election and it reverts to business as usual.
Our government has served well in its past, but it has become apparent that it is no longer suited to cope with the
times we live in because faster and broader travel and communications have resulted in a world where events move at a much
faster pace and the government can no longer keep up with events as the happen or plan well for events that are going to happen.
We therefore, trusting in God to help us to do Right to the peoples of the United States, do declare since our government has failed.
We have the god given right to replace it with a new better government that will truly be of the people, by the people and
for the people.
Therefore we declare that the United States Government should be dissolved and the Imperial Republic should be established
to govern the people so that again the people can rule themselves with honor, integrity and justice for all.
In support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance in the guidance of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge our Lives,
our Fortunes, and our Sacred Honor to the achievement of the goals in this document.
