2-3-09, noonish EST - I need help in real time on a resolution

Look it over. I got this far and feel like there needs to be an "action item" as a final "Be it resolved." Any other input appreciated. MUCH appreciation to the posts this morning that lit this fire under me - props to Missouri and New Hampshire!

Resolution Acknowledging the Independence of Sovereign Individual Citizens of the State of Idaho

Whereas The Constitution of the State of Idaho, Article I “Declaration of Rights,” Section 1 “Inalienable Rights of Man” states: “All men are by nature free and equal, and have certain inalienable rights, among which are enjoying and defending life and liberty;” and

Whereas The Constitution of the State of Idaho, Article I “Declaration of Rights,” Section 2 “Political Powers Inherent in the People” states: “All political power is inherent in the people. Government is instituted for their equal protection and benefit, and they have the right to alter, reform, or abolish the same whenever they may deem it necessary;” and

Whereas the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States states the purpose of said Constitution, to whit: “in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity;” and

Whereas the Federal Government has proven derelict in all duties described in the praemble to the Constitution of the United States as evidenced by; 1. The granting and withholding of taxes collected from the citizens of the several States by the Fedreal government based upon un-Constitutional criteria, such as the existence of seat belt laws. 2. The existence of a private prison system that now holds the largest percentage of imprisoned citizens in the civilized world with clear racial imbalance, and a history of death penalty reversals based on DNA evidence, 3. The use of our State Militia as an extension of the Armed Forces, including shipping the personnel and equipment intended to protect Idaho's citizens overseas as invading and occupying forces, 4. The burden being placed on every citizen of Idaho to carry debt for the banking, auto and other industries which is directly harming the general welfare, and passe sthis debt, rather than libety, on to our posterity. 5. A relentless assault on the Constitutionally enumerated liberties by Executive Orders, Legislative Acts, and other actions of the various agents of the Federal Government, including but not limited to; the Patriot Act, the suspension of posse comitatus, the enforcement of “Free Speech Zones,” the Foreign Intelligence Survellience Act; and

Whereas the Federal Government continues to lay and collect taxes upon the citizens to fund the enforcement of said Executive Orders, Legislative Acts and other various actions of the various agents of the Federal Government which unlawfully restrict the inalienable rights of the sovereign individual citizens of the States; and

Whereas the Constitution of the United States, Amendment 1, delineates a “right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances” and such petitions have been duly presented, with no respose from any elected official having been made; and

Whereas the Declaration of Independence states; “When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
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 happiness; that to secure these rights governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;” and

Whereas the actions of the Federal government consistently and egregiously impinge upon the citizens unalienable rights; and

Whereas the right of the governed to create a government is inexoribly linked to the responsibility of the soveriegn individual to withdraw consent from a government that no longer uses its powers for justice, or the securing of the rights of citizens, but rather taxes the citizens directly and through inflation and uses these funds to restrict the liberties of the soveriegn individual citizens of the States, to engage in tortore and other violations of International Law, to prop up an unconstitutional Federal Reserve System, and other gross violations of the public trust,

Therefore be it RESOLVED: The right of Individual, Sovereign Citizens of the States are hereby recognized as the ultimate law, and the right to withdraw consent to be governed by an unjust and unlawful Federal Government is coupled with a right, and perhaps a duty, to withhold any taxes or fees that aid in the unlawful activites of such a government.

Be it further resolved this Declaration Of Independence Of Sovereign Individual Citizens is not to be interpretted to be an act of sedition or war, merely a reassertion of the noble ideals of our Founding Fathers. When a Federal Government that is held to the Constitution is restored, the great Citizens of the States will willingly and generously support such a government.

Sorry this took so long. I

Sorry this took so long. I added a few specifics to it and was somewhat harsher than just withholding taxes but here is my version:

Resolution Acknowledging the Independence of Sovereign Individual Citizens of the State of Idaho and withdrawal of citizens' consent
Whereas The Constitution of the State of Idaho, Article I "Declaration of Rights," Section 1 "Inalienable Rights of Man" states: "All men are by nature free and equal, and have certain inalienable rights, among which are enjoying and defending life and liberty;" and
Whereas The Constitution of the State of Idaho, Article I "Declaration of Rights," Section 2 "Political Powers Inherent in the People" states: "All political power is inherent in the people. Government is instituted for their equal protection and benefit, and they have the right to alter, reform, or abolish the same whenever they may deem it necessary;" and
Whereas the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States states the purpose of said Constitution, to wit: "in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity;" and

3. The use of our State Militia as an extension of the Armed Forces, including shipping the personnel and equipment intended to protect Idaho's citizens overseas as invading and occupying forces,

4. The burden being placed on every citizen of Idaho to carry debt for the banking, auto and other industries which is directly harming the general welfare, and passes this debt, rather than liberty, on to our posterity.

5. A relentless assault on the Constitutionally enumerated liberties by Executive Orders, Legislative Acts, and other actions of the various agents of the Federal Government, including but not limited to; the Patriot Act, the suspension of posse comitatus, the enforcement of "Free Speech Zones," the Foreign Intelligence Survellience Act, RealID, National Animal Identification and endless abridgement of the citizens’ right to keep and bear arms;
Whereas the Federal Government continues to lay and collect taxes upon the citizens to fund the enforcement of said Executive Orders, Legislative Acts and other various actions of the various agents of the Federal Government which unlawfully restrict the inalienable rights of the sovereign individual citizens of the States; and
Whereas the Constitution of the United States, Amendment 1, delineates a "right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances" and such petitions have been duly presented, with no response from any elected official having been made; and

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 happiness; that to secure these rights governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed;" and

Whereas the right of the governed to create a government is inexorably linked to the responsibility of the sovereign individual to withdraw consent from a government that no longer uses its powers for justice, or the securing of the rights of citizens, but rather taxes the citizens directly and through inflation and uses these funds to restrict the liberties of the sovereign individual citizens of the States, to engage in torture and other violations of International Law, to prop up an unconstitutional Federal Reserve System, and other gross violations of the public trust,
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT: since the right of Individual, Sovereign Citizens of the States are recognized as the ultimate law, it is not only the right, but the duty of those citizens to withdraw consent to be governed by such an unjust and unlawful Federal Government, they hereby give notice that it is their intent withhold any taxes or fees that aid in the unlawful activities of such a government and to disregard any laws imposed by the Federal Government that violate either the Constitution of the United States or the Constitution of the State of Idaho. From this date forward or until a Federal Government that is held to the Constitution is restored, it is the intent that the great Citizens of the State of Idaho to no longer willingly support such a government.
Be it further resolved this Declaration of Independence of Sovereign Individual Citizens is not to be interpreted as an act of sedition or war, but merely a reassertion of the noble ideals of our Founding Fathers. When a Federal Government that is held to the Constitution is restored, the great Citizens of the State of Idaho will willingly support such a government.

BOHICA!!

Bravo

paul4won & nwind.

I might be able to trade some network engineering work to a lawyer here in Boise to have him take a look at it. Let me know.

It's Paul4Won's document so

It's Paul4Won's document so it is up to him, but I like the idea. It is my understanding that we must also find a legislative sponsor and pre-file the bill in early November in order to get it assigned to and through the appropriate committee to have a chance of being heard the following year. We really, REALLY need some RP people in the state legislature.

Good Morning Idaho!

Other than a few spelling errors it looks very good.

I would delete the phrase "with clear racial imbalance" in the sixth paragraph as it is not important to the whole. The sentence....

"The existence of a private prison system that now holds the largest percentage of imprisoned citizens in the civilized world" stands well on it's own without bringing race into it. Perhaps a change to "in the history of the civilized world", which is true and might be more pointed.

Thank you for all your efforts to support and promote liberty.

Add 10th amendment language

Check the language that Oklahoma passed or the language in the Missouri resolution I posted here.

The Missouri one is already n my County Chair's in box

As is the New Hampshire one. This was my #3 for a "triple whammy." My swan song, actually. I have zero hope in politics. A year ago I got involved with this amazing bunch of people who spouted a lot of rhetoric about liberty. The same people now seek to silence me on the issues I consider integral to true liberty, as I honestly believe TRUE liberty is a state of mind. Oppression is everything that detracts from our basic, primary condition. This starts at the top, with Dr. Paul aiding in the marginalization of people who love truth. This cancer is now so pervasive in his organization that the CFL representatives in my state have chosen to eliminate me from the RP Revolution history, and pretend I was not a co-coordinator for the Presidential Campaign. Beyond how rude it is, it is a lie. From this tiny lie, to Dr. Paul's assistance with discouraging his followers from asking questions about the 9-11 lie, I have no respect left for Dr. Paul or the CFL. I will serve out the term, we made a deal with our neighbors. I will fight for TRUTH, alone and marginalized by the CFL people in this state, many of them are people that I got involved in politics. When it became politically expedient to stab me in the back, I got the knife every time. I get reprimanded for "alienating" people with my insistence on my right to ask questions by people who ought to be defending my right to do so. Funny thing is, these people are so deluded they think I give a damn about making friends or networking with politicians. I just want to raise chickens. Someone pointed out a problem with the political system. I am pretty smart, thought I would help out. But I have no desire to be here, and while Dr . Paul and the CFL chose to pretend I did not even exist, I know what I did and I have no debt to this society left.
Best of luck to you all. I hope you all take it well when you figure out that Ron Paul set us all up.
Peace!

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

I like it as it stands

Thank you Dr. Paul for making me act on what I already knew was right.

*May the only ones to touch your junk, be the ones you want to touch your junk.*

I agree.

It just needs a little touch-up editing; mostly spelling errors. It's definitely going in the right direction.

I can write Lawyerese.

None of the heavy stuff, mind you, but I can sound "official". Do you want some help with the style of the verbiage?

Not to say that there is anything wrong with it.

Never mind.

I promised myself that as of noon (my time) I was done with politics. I never wanted involved, I got deeply involved and now fully understand how useless it is, and am through pretending Ron Paul is any better than any of the others. We were had, folks.
It was great getting to know you folks, I truly wish you all the best of luck. I am going to put my energies where they may do some good... raising chickens.

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

I understand your frustration.

It's going to often be silly as a Monty Python routine around here, until Dr. Paul makes some announcements to guide the movement he inspired.

I'd love it

It occurred to me to try to cite case law regarding a patient's right to withdraw consent. Do you think that is worth pursuing?

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

I actually like what you have so far.

I don't think it needs that particular medical analogy added in.

Really? 2 days of favorite beers, no help with a resolution?

Hmmm - maybe there is a reason we keep losing our rights...
