WHEREAS, we reaffirm 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 has 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 makes clear 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, and
WHEREAS, governments are instituted among men solely to secure their rights and only derive their power from the consent of a sovereign People, and
WHEREAS, the Unalienable Rights endowed by our Creator and enumerated not all-inclusively, within the Constitution cannot be legally taken from us, altered or abridged by any power whatsoever, and we have not ceded to any sovereign power, a right to dispose of these without our consent, and
WHEREAS, the right of individuals to express their thoughts, desires, and aspirations, and to communicate freely with others, affirms the dignity and worth of each and every member of society. Thus, freedom of expression is an end in itself and should not be subordinated to any other goals of society, and
WHEREAS, tyrannies thrive on mass ignorance, but freedom of expression is vital to the attainment and advancement of knowledge. All points of view should be represented in the "marketplace of ideas" so that society can benefit from constructive discourse, and
WHEREAS, freedom of expression is necessary to our system of self-government. If the American people are to be truly sovereign, the masters of their fate and of their elected government, they must be well-informed. They must have access to all information, ideas and points of view. The precondition for a free society is an informed and enlightened citizenry, and
WHEREAS, freedom of expression provides a necessary check against possible government corruption and excess, which seem to be permanent features of the human condition, and
WHEREAS, the Ninth and Tenth Amendments provide that the enumeration of rights in the Constitution shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people, that 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, and
WHEREAS, a perpetual deliberative assembly organized as such and instituted under natural law will possess every attribute of absolute sovereignty, except such as may have been yielded and are embodied within the Constitution of the United States
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, assuming among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature entitle us as a sovereign people, taking into our most serious consideration, the best means of assuring our continued constitutional rights of self governance, as our ancestors in like cases have done, for asserting and vindicating our unalienable rights and liberties, do hereby provide informed consent and collectively petition for the Federal Incorporation of the National General Assembly of the United States, an autonomous, alternative, parallel, and legitimate governmental corporation.
RESOLVED, the National General Assembly of the United States is organized as a federal for-benefit, Public Financial Authority and Conservator of the United States General Convention, identified in Article V of the United States Constitution.
RESOLVED, with consent, the National General Assembly is hereby provisionally incorporated pursuant to the United States Constitution, natural law, and historical precedent, As such, shall be on equal station with each of the three loci of the central government.
