Obama should legalise micronations

    2. Petition by

      Cesidio Tallini

      South Floral Park, NY

We, the leaders, citizens, or friends of micronations, some of us resident on the de jure soil of the United States, and some of us resident on the de jure soil of countries that are nonetheless allies of the United States, have one thing in common, besides the fact we understand written English: we wish to urge President Barack Obama to adopt a policy that encourages the legalisation of micronations as nonprofit legal socio-economic entities, which are owed at least the same real autonomy, and the same fiscal status by governments as churches.

We, the leaders, citizens, or friends of micronations, ask President Barack Obama to encourage the development of a new Internal Revenue Service (IRS) code that will grant true micronations, which find approval with a special new agency in the U.S. Department of State, the status of international missions independent of any particular state, which have at least a US-recognised right to exist as alternative governments, and which do exist not for the purpose of profit, but for the nonprofit purpose of fostering community, positive societal change, progress, and freedom.

We, the leaders, citizens, or friends of micronations, ask President Barack Obama to grant true micronations the status of legitimate, but not fully recognised missions of autonomous small nations or states.

We do not ask President Barack Obama that he recognise any micronational territorial claims, or allow for an extension of the letter and spirit of the Vienna Conventions of 1961 and 1963. We ask President Barack Obama to enable fiscal and diplomatic policy that would allow genuine micronational missions "to be considered sovereign, until proven dependent", respecting the full spirit of the Montevideo Convention. We ask President Barack Obama to allow genuine micronational missions to exist legally as nonprofit organisations; that they be treated like separate-from-the-state churches; and that they be treated as nonprofits for fiscal purposes.

We, the leaders, citizens, or friends of micronations, ask President Barack Obama to fully embrace the Montevideo Convention and its premises not just with his words, but with his spirit, so as to foster the dignity of even small unrecognised nations or states, and so as to enable the fulfilment of this prophecy:

And the wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them. (Isaiah 11:6)
