The Declaration of Independence


  Declaration of Independence.jpg

  Declaration of Independ blu.jpg

The unanimous declaration of the thirteen United States of America, in Congress, July 4, I776.

The Oregon Patriot Party presents this side by side reference to the plain meanings within this document which are ever increasingly being ignored by our government. Words and their meanings have been presented as well as factual references and insights.

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.

The document begins by acknowledging there will be times when it will be necessary for a people to break away from a form of government. To assume the powers of independent nations as "States" and people. To become and be respected as equal nations as "States" - See 37 and 39 Grievances Below. That it is a natural succession entitled to them by the laws of nature and of God. That with respect to views and opinions of all mankind they believe it decent and a self imposed requirement that they present the reasons for which they feel it necessary to separate from their home country. The Right to Secede.(Separate from their former government or society.

We hold these truths to be self-evident:

 1. Conformity to fact or actuality.
 2. A statement proven to be or accepted as true.

 1. Requiring no proof or explanation.


 That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

 1. Definite; fixed.
 2. Sure to come or happen; inevitable.
 3. Established beyond doubt or question; indisputable.

1. That cannot be transferred to another or others.

1. Conforming with or conformable to justice, law, or . morality.
 2. In accordance with fact, reason, or truth; correct.

among these:
Meaning that there are more inalienable rights than are being immediately mentioned.

The opposite meanings of those 40 Grievances presented in this document which  define what freedom is not, are also inalienable rights.

These Grievances are listed further below;

Later, the Bill of Rights outlined more of these inalienable rights. (The Bill of Rights are derived from early individual rights established in England but expanded to true and greater defined absolute rights in America).


To live where and how one wants to live so long as it does not physically injure another person.


a. The condition of being free from restriction or control.
b. The right and power to act, believe, or express oneself in a manner of one's own choosing.
c. The condition of being physically and legally free from confinement, servitude, or forced labor.

2. Freedom from unjust or undue governmental control.

3. A right and power to engage in certain actions without control or interference.

a. The act or an instance of chasing or pursuing.
b. The act of striving.
c. An activity, such as a vocation or hobby, engaged in regularly.


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

Our Government is created to protect these rights. That any power a government has is there only with the consent of the people.

This does not give the people or the government the power to change or abolish  inalienable rights which cannot be given away, taken away, sold or transferred.


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 a 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.

Should the government try to alter or destroy any inalienable rights, it is the right of the people,

any one or number of people *,

to alter or abolish that government and create a new government that respects those inalienable rights;

Rights which make a government ask consent of the governed for which this right of altercation or abolishment is granted. They are describing here why they are separating and setting the stage for that what it is that will be most likely to effect their safety and happiness.

1. To change or make different; modify.

1. To do away with; annul.
2. To destroy completely.

* Note that only 38 Patriot villagers ran out and faced the largest government  in the world at that time; facing 700 British Regulars across Lexington Bridge.

Of the 38, 8 died and 9 were wounded.

The British under direction of General Gage then went on to destroy citizens militia supplies at Concord.

Neither the British Government at that time nor our own Federal government likes armed civilians equal to the strength of the standing army. Yet, this is the reason for the 12th Grievance which defines the 2nd Amendment - see below.

14 of Gages men were lost in the following skirmishes after the supplies were destroyed at Concord.

Farmers everywhere though outnumbered took to their guns and chased after the British who were reinforced by 1200 more men and field pieces (cannon) and the battle intensified until the British found safe haven in Charlestown. The British suffering 247 casualties to the Colonists 88.

True Patriotism is not defined in numbers but in those who is willing and will to defend Certain, Inalienable, Rights.


Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath 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.

Much consideration should be taken before changing a government that has been in existence for a long time; and never changed for causes that are unimportant or that will change easily with time.

History has shown that man is willing to be beat down a long time with regulations  and abusive laws of a government before they get mad enough to to take steps  to change it; or courage enough to fight and overthrow it. This is because  they become accustomed to the misuse, rendering themselves lazy, unfocussed  and passive.


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 right, it is their duty, to throw off such government and to provide new guards for their future security. Such has been the patient suffering of these colonies, and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government

However, when after many abuses have been suffered which indicates that such a government will continue to misuse its powers and ignore those inalienable rights and rule with oppressive power.

It is each individual's or group of individuals RIGHT and DUTY to over throw  that government and to create safeguards to protect themselves from the same  misuse occurring in the future.

This includes the Federal Government and Constitution if it becomes degraded to a point that is contrary to the Declaration of Independence which is the lone document that defines freedom.The origionating founders letters providing further the intent. 

Thousands died for this document alone; no one died to ratify the Constitution. Also, the Constitution would have never been ratified without the Bill of Rights that are the ``Among These" defined in the Declaration of Independence defining ``Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

usurp (usurpations):

1. To seize and hold (the power or rights of another, for example) by force and without legal authority.

2. To take over or occupy without right.

3. To seize another's place, authority, or possession wrongfully.


To show or demonstrate clearly; manifest.

despot or despotism:

1. A ruler with absolute power.
2. A person or government who wields power oppressively,
3. A tyrant or those collectively with unlimited power or authority.
4. Any Tyrannical control.

Our countries reasons for seeking independence.


The history of the present king of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states.

*** Although the following complaints by the Colonies were aimed toward the king of England, you can see that some of the problems they faced then are not so unlike the problems we are facing right now with an oppressive federal government.

Remember, it doesn't matter what a controlling oppressing power is; as it can be a king, a dictator, a bureaucracy, a socialist structure, a democracy, a republic; It means very clearly "any government", any form ofoppressive power.

Foreign policy, immigration and foreign armed forces not so unlike the U.N. (united nations), Federal armed forces and civil militias are also easily related in the Grievances and described clearly.

 *** Below we have offered correlation's between what was then a reason to become independent and present day problems needed to be corrected. We have numbered the reasons for ease of reference.


1.) To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world. He has refused his assent to laws the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.


1.) Here again our founding fathers are proposing to set down laws that will be wholesome and necessary for the public good.


1. Conducive to sound health or well-being; salutary.
2. Promoting mental, moral, or social health.
3. Enjoying or marked by physical, mental, or moral soundness; healthy.


1. Absolutely essential.
2. Needed to achieve a certain result or effect; requisite.
3.a. Unavoidably determined by prior conditions or circumstances; inevitable. b. Logically inevitable.
4. Required by obligation, compulsion, or convention 5. Something indispensable.


2.) He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained, and, when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

2.) Here we have been given an example of local governments whose serious immediate needs are being ignored or suspended  by a higher oppressive power until that power gives its approval.

States Rights and Local Rights to Pass Local Laws are an Inalienable Right.


3.) He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature; a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

3.) Here the king try's to keep any opposition to his rule by only allowing people into its domain if they give up their right to have representation in the legislature or voice in the law making process.

Zoning is another way of refusing accommodation of large districts of people and is completely against the rights of the people who have a right to build  and live where they wish.

Another reason that our Rights cannot be given up or even given or traded away!


1. Impossible to estimate or compute.

2. Of immeasurable value or worth; invaluable.


4.) He has called together legislative bodies, at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the repository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

4.) The reason for have law libraries and places of records in every major city.

However, there are federal records for federal agencies that are almost impossible  to access freely or obtain cost effectively: the Bureau of Land Management  among others who's records you have to ask them to get for you so you must  know exactly what you are looking for; and are unable to research all copies  of their records freely. An agency that needs to be dissolved anyway and lands given to each states local county control.

BLM also has their own courts in Virginia that determine the outcome of their own administrative law.

State and Federal "Administrative law" now causes people to travel hundreds of miles for "pretrial hearings" long before the actual trial and far from the area of where the issues are occurring, thus fatiguing those that need to defend themselves or their position and creating great difficulty to a proceeding that will be given great weight at a eventual trial. 


5.) He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

 5.) Here the king try's to keep people from organizing and representing themselves against him for his actions against the peoples rights by using force.

This is another reason why civilians in this country have a right to keep and bear arms and why the civilian army needs to always be of greater strength than the standing army. (continue reading for this absolute fact and prescription written as a grievance the 12th Grievance in the Declaration of Independence)


6.) He has refused for a long time after such dissolutions to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise: the state remaining, in the meantime exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without and convulsions within.

6.) Basically, after such dissolving of representatives, the king delays the election of others, meanwhile those powers or laws they wish to have removed, changed or be protected from, return to take what they want from them (convulsions from within); and kept from any representation through the legislative process to receive adequate protection from their enemies (invasion from without). The reason for the 12th Grievance and 2nd Amendment.


7.) He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization  of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither,  and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.

7.) Here the king tries to keep people out of this country and from entering the states by not granting naturalization and raising the cost and creating costly and difficult procedures or conditions to obtain land or properties.

   This is an absolute statement denying the right of the king to keep people from migrating to this country
  It is also just one more reason why Zoning of land which restrict the liberty of building and living where one wishes is unconscionable and unconstitutional.

It is regulation that keeps jobs from this country, not immigration. Lift all zoning and there would be no unemployment.

1. To or toward this place.

2. idiom.
hither and thither or hither and yon.
In or to many places; here and there.

Note: Building codes for publicly owned buildings and Emission controls for companies whose pollution leaves its property into the public would not be restricted from being laws regulating them.

This is an area of special consideration which will be addressed at length later on in this web site where we discuss where Rights of one are not Rights to encroach upon another.


8.) He has obstructed the administration of justice by refusing his assent to laws for establishing his judiciary powers.

8.) Simply, the king refused to agree to anyone creating laws that would establish any kind of guidelines or firm rules to his powers.


 1. Agreement; concurrence.
 2. Acquiescence; consent. (*** a word used later below)

 3. To agree, as to a proposal; concur.


9.) He has made judges dependent on his will alone for the tenure of their offices and the amount and payment of their salaries.

9.) Self explanatory.

He controlled all judges by controlling their salaries. Appointed judges can face similar biases if they are appointed. However, if they are educated in both law and the laws of freedom as presented by the founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence, such biases should be very limited by just reasoning.


10.) He has erected a multitude of new offices and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

10.) Here the king has created massive bureaucracy just as we see in our country today.

Offices we do not need. Enforcing laws on us we don't need; And ``eating out our substance", our hard earned money, to pay for their high salaries, insurance, dental, doctor and retirement!

Then they have the gall to ask for fees for their services!

But for the armed forces, police and fire. All else is welfare, should be paid accordingly and limited to four years service to the public.

They would then have that training to use toward work and position in the private work place.

 *** This is why we need to put a freeze on government employee hiring and begin shifting jobs from nonessential government offices to essential government offices as openings become available.

*** At the same time, declare Zoning, as it is in fact, unconstitutional. This will open the way for private jobs through private enterprise.

11.) He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies without the consent of our legislatures.

11.) This is not an issue in our country but for the lack of local control over federal policing agencies by local legislature.

It does cement the fact that Federalism was hated by the original founders.

The "federalists" created, after freedom was won for free and independent states, a condition that was sure to create the very same problematic issues of a large central government they had just wrestled freedom from.

Only later was federalism ``debated" by a few who forgot what they fought against to gain their freedom.

Legislatures were independent of the kings court and independent of each state or area.

 This (local control) desperately needed now, would reduce some public tensions from unwarranted federal policing tactics which should be left outside our country for socialists, communists and other enemies to a truely defined free society based on these inalienable rights.


12.) He has affected to render the military independent of and superior to the civil power.

 12.) Here is a powerful statement of our Fore Fathers that the civil power should be equal to or greater than the military powers.

Most importantly, it defines the difference of the two.

This can be no plainer.
Lets look at what these words mean.

 1. Of, relating to, or befitting a citizen or citizens.
2. Of or relating to citizens and their interrelations with one another or with the state.
3. Of ordinary citizens or ordinary community life as distinguished from the military or the ecclesiastical.
4. Of or in accordance with organized society; civilized.
5. Sufficiently observing or befitting accepted social usage's; not rude.
6. Being in accordance with or denoting legally recognized divisions of time.
7. Law. Relating to the rights of private individuals and legal proceedings  concerning these rights as distinguished from criminal, military, or international  regulations or proceedings.

Militia - Civil Power:

1. An army composed of ordinary citizens rather than professional soldiers. (i.e. CIVIL POWER)
2. A military force that is not part of a regular army and is subject to call for service in an emergency.
3. The whole body of physically fit civilians eligible by law for military service. (not applicable as all service at the time was voluntary - one should note that any just war will have many volunteers. Abraham Lincoln was the fist to impose a draft and hundreds of people were hung in the streets in protest. The fact is that slavery was the only thing that the south was wrong in, the war was actually fought to assure northern industry could not be regulated, out competed or restricted by southern states in commerce. The Declaration of Independence guarantees Free and Independent States (37th & 39th Grievances below). The war would have been won by the south had not the draft be implemented. This is no glaring approval to federalism of which dangers presented in the federalist papers are now coming true.)

Note: Because the national guard is controlled by the federal government and paid as a reserve force it is not a civil power as defined or practiced. It is an extension of the standing army.

military - Standing Army

1. Of, relating to, or characteristic of members of the armed forces.
2. Performed or supported by the armed forces.
3. Of or relating to war.
4. Of or relating to land forces.
5. Armed forces.
6. Members, especially officers, of an armed force.

13.) He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitutions and unacknowledged by our laws, giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

13.) Here the king has joined with others to place the colonists under the jurisdiction of those he has conspired with.

 This makes it very clear that no laws but our own shall govern our country. And that States (colonies) rights they possessed not be subject to far removed powers.

 Laws imposed on the United States by any UN charters are unconstitutional and directly in conflict with the Declaration of Independence.

The federal government by its relentless defiance of the founding documents intent of this document which is a Engagement of the people and allowance of financial gain as well as outside interventions with the same corruption is now practicing this same pretended legislation.  


14.) For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us;

14.) Self explanatory. Remember, these were British citizens whose own government placed a standing army among the citizenry.

This was a reason to over throw their government. Think about this, then read the 12th grievance again. This further defines the rights of individual citizens to be in their right to keep and bear arms equal to and greater than the standing army.


15.) For protecting them by a mock trial from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states;

15.) The reason for crimes against civilians by government or military personnel to be placed in local civil courts and tried by civilians. Not military courts.


16.) For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world;

16.) Affirms free trade. Inside as well as outside the US.


17.) For imposing taxes on us without our consent;

17.) Meaning:

The Government cannot tax us unless we agree to be taxed.

 ``No taxation without representation". (Do not confuse representatives - persons - with that which is representative of that which is purchased with peoples consent.

Remember, the colonists had British "representatives" who made decisions for them; this is what they fought against.

This is a inalienable right as it is one of the original ``Bill of Rights"; and cannot be changed.

The 16th amendment of the Constitution is in violation of the original constitution  and the 17th Grievance of the Declaration of Independence.

  You cannot amend an inalienable right; and representation does not mean a representative as an individual, it means representation of the need by consent.

   General funds are unconstitutional as they do not pertain to a specific purpose which has been dedicated by the people themselves by vote and individual consent.

   This is why a general percentage tax derived from income, property or sales is unconstitutional.

   It makes it impossible to stop collecting when funds for a particular need are satisfied; and creates a bureaucracy that expends more money just to return over taxation back to the people.... If your ``representitives decide to give you back your money; or throw it back into a ``general fund" to spend when and where they want.

   This last problem is what expands bureaucracies and dependencies of people upon government money, and should be stopped for it is unconstitutional and extremely damaging to freedom and the country..

No Names No Numbers Tax)


18.) For depriving us in many cases of the benefits of trial by jury;

18.) Self explanatory. (see constitution for jury of peers encroachment) There are so many unconstitutional laws pertaining  to private property that courts have become clogged with petty infractions  to laws which should never have been laws in the first place. The biggest  infraction is one person telling another what he should or shouldn't do with  his own property.

Because of this clogging of unnecessary laws, the courts have began developing ways for people to wave their right to a jury by trial to cut costs.

Administrative law has been developed to bypass laws that protect people. Administrative Hearings before court proceedings force people to travel burdensome miles from home prior to the final courts proceedings.

This practice is beginning to work itself into the entire legal system. (i.e. small claims court, traffic violations etc.) This is a dangerous practice which could be greatly alleviated by reducing petty laws and presenting laws that address only real crimes and not perceived ones.

In a free country you cannot wave, sell or trade away rights. Rights are certain and inalienable.

You cannot agree to arbitration, as you cannot freely give up your right to a jury by trial which is an inalienable right.


19.) For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended offenses;

19.) Self explanatory. Not an issue at this time. A danger if UN charters impose laws on our country as well as other countries.


20.) For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these colonies;

20.) Bureaucracies such as the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) as well as other large federal bureaucracies present powers within themselves. BLM now possesses armed rangers as well as legal enforcement of their own laws.

They also have their own Hearings and Appeals court in Virginia that proceeds all other courts pertaining to their laws and issues of property within their jurisdiction.

Most recently this particular bureaucracy is being used as a major tool to expand even greater control over Federal lands through so called environmental protection causes.


21.) For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments;

21.) Self explanatory. Inalienable Rights... which are Laws, our most valuable laws, are even now being abolished and altered. This is Treason by any who involves themselves in enforcing laws that ignore, over ride or water down inalienable rights.

Our present federal government is constantly altering fundamentally the form of our government. They simply refuse to realize that freedom works. They place this country and its true definition of freedoms in peril.


22.) For suspending our own legislatures and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

22.) A problem where Federal Government tries to impose powers over State, and Federal and State over County jurisdictions.

Suspending our state legislatures occurred during the Civil War, and now the federal government uses federally collected tax money to ``bribe" i.e. ``if you don't do what we want, you won't receive matching federal funds";

Another reason not to have taxes given without a particular reason, or representative  of exactly what it should be spent for, or without our individual consent  ";

In this way the federal government would have nothing by which to bribe local governments.

Our present government is not the type of government the origionating founders  envisioned, as clearly defined in the 37th and 39th Grievances (below) and  in countless.


23.) He has abdicated government here by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.

23.) Here the national government has relinquished the power of the local governments and waged war against them. This happened in the Civil War also by the Federal Government that refused to heed the founders intent.

It is continuing now through the use of financial manipulation of corrupt taxation to withhold moneys from states and counties whose is rightfully theirs to use as they wish in the first place, that will not comply with federal measures. A dangerous combination when international agreements cause sway in our most valuable laws.


1. To relinquish (power or responsibility) formally.
To relinquish formally a high office or responsibility.


24.) He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns and destroyed the lives of our people.

24.) Self explanatory.

Notice they did not call them "terrorists".

They later called them enemies and left it at that; `At war enemies in peace friends'. We should learn by this.

Trying to sell a new definition of enemy such as `terrorism' is a ploy to take more rights away from free citizens;

The only reason to use such terms is to step around laws which normally restrict  governments from invading the rights of its citizens.

25.) He is at this time transporting large armies of
foreign mercenaries to complete the work of death, desolation, and tyranny already begun, with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.

25.) A reason to never allow foreign armies jurisdiction, for any cause, over, or occupation within, our lands; namely at this time the UN, property ownership of US lands by individuals not of US citizenship (renewable leases that are revocable in time of war and subject to US interest laws would be acceptable but absolutely no foreign or U.N or other country's military bases)


26.) He has constrained our fellow citizens taken captive upon the high seas to bear arms against their country, to become  the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands;

26.) No military should take up arms against its own people.

No man should be pressed into service.

A just war will find many volunteers.

If the purpose we went to war was to defend certain inalienable rights and then to establish certain inalienable rights in another country we defeat, there would be no reason for a draft which is against established certain inalienable rights anyway.

The sad part of our present military actions, is that we in defense attack and defeat a nation in retaliation, then instead of establishing true freedoms there, we lift up "total democracy", or a mob rules or total socialism, which in fact democracy is when it is without "certain inalienable rights" as its foundation to limit its governments corruption;

 We then proclaim the installed European type government that does not recognize certain inalienable rights as some form of freedom.

Which it is not.

The people still left under subjugation of their government.

What stupidity.

The UN as it stands, can be used against its own people and countries practicing  inalienable rights if the "international community decides" and is the reason  it should be disarmed and merely a room where nations debate real problems  and for which each nation will act on their own sovereign interests.

This is also another reason for the citizenry to have equal or greater arms than the standing army as is defined in the 12th grievance.

27.) He has excited domestic insurrection amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes, and conditions.

 27.) Self explanatory. *Government should not sell (promote) its worth, or need of their services to us, our services to them, or to others sympathetic to that which insures their employment.

 We have fallen into the same method of warfare due to modern warfare weapons and tactics.

Again, notice we did not redefine an enemy by calling them terrorists.


28.) In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress, in the most humble terms;

28.) Self explanatory. We also present these to the Federal Government.


29.) our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.


29.) Self explanatory.

  Declaration of Independence.jpg

  Declaration of Independ blu.jpg

30.) A prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.


30.) Defines character as a very important factor in the leadership of a free people.

31.) Nor have we been wanting in attention to our British brethren.

31.) Self explanatory. Here many people just want to be left alone by an imposing federal government of today which increasingly places burdens on the people that it now extracts tax money from without their consent;

The reason for the 17th Grievance.


32.) We have warned them, from time to time, of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us.

32.) The reason this web site is created.

To educate and indeed warn both local, state and federal governments that they have been overstepping the laws that they have sworn to uphold;

So they can make the changes that is their right and duty to make; individually or collectively.

That is: to throw out all laws and imposing regulations not aligned with the Grievances and rights of the Declaration of Independence.

 The excuse of just doing ones job, is no excuse to ignore ones duty to his country.

If you know something to be adverse to the original Grievances, work to remove it; which is your individual  RIGHT and your DUTY.

 ***Also - Work to make the UN simply a room for which independent countries can talk freely; nothing more; and having no separate military or jurisdictive powers over other countries.

This will keep any foreign, and indeed unwarrantable jurisdiction away from our free country.


33.) We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here.


33.) Self explanatory.

34.) We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity; and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred, to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence.


34.) Self explanatory.

35.) They, too. have been deaf to the voice of justice and consanguinity.

35.) Self explanatory.


1. Of the same lineage or origin; having a common ancestor.


 36.) We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war - in peace, friends.


36.) Self explanatory.

Establishes the right to separate from any form of government.

37.) We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in general congress assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the World for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name and by the authority of the good people of these colonies, solemnly publish and declare that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent states;


37.) Self explanatory.

Supreme Judge of the World: God

Free and Independent states. Are you deaf ???

 38.) that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved;


38.) Self explanatory.

39.) and that as free and independent states they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do.


39.) Self explanatory.

Free and Independent States. Are you deaf ???

 40.) And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.

(Click here to See just what many of these men Sacrificed).

40.) ...our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.

This is an
Engagement with and of the American people that subjugates the United States Constitution as defined in the Constitution's structure;

Wherein it states clearly:


Article VI of the Constitution of the United States:

All Debts contracted and "Engagements entered into", "before the Adoption" of this Constitution,
shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation.

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made
in Pursuance thereof;


and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land;

and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution  or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwith-standing.

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution;

but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.
(They however relied upon God for its success. ie "Divine Providence" giving respect, and achknowlegement)


What greater
ENGAGEMENT is there of freedom, than the Declaration of Independence that establishes freedom!

The Constitution which purpose is to limit the powers of government, not to empower it, is subject to the Declaration of Independence and the letters of the Originating Founding Fathers of 1776 that define the intent of this written Engagement that is the founding document of true freedom.

It is the ONLY document for which those who fought for freedom died and sacrificed for, there was no other.

George Washington read it to his troops before each battle so that there was no question as to what they were  sacrificing for.

Those who signed this document, and those who fought for this document risked everything;

Many men did give up their lives and fortunes as they pledged for freedom. To find out what became of the signers and just what many of these men Sacrificed
Click here

Nowhere in history of the world or in the world today, is there such a document that defends against subjugation of governments and empowers the individual above any and all governments with certain inalienable rights, placing any and all governments at their feet.

All other people are subjects to the governments of their own making.

Do not make the mistake of confusing true freedom defined by "certain, inalienable  rights" presented here as its foundation, with all those falsely proclaimed  "free nations" such as England who have no such foundation.

United States Army Pacific Command (USARPAC).
The U. S. Army, Pacific serves as the Army Component Command to the Commander in Chief U. S. Pacific Command (USCINCPAC), less the geographic area of Korea. USARPAC commands active U. S. Army and U. S. Army Reserve forces in Alaska, Hawaii, Japan, and in possessions and trust territories administered by the United States in US Pacific command.

In October 2000, USARPAC became a Multi-Component Unit (MCU) and Army Service Component Command (ASCC) as part of the US Army transformation to meet the emerging security needs of the United States in which USARPAC continues to be a key strategic player. The whole idea of the multi-component unit is to give active army units additional resources to accomplish the mission. The multi-component integration is important in the overall picture of the Army's success going into the 21st century. With the Reserve and National Guard assuming a more active role in total Army operations and the "One Team, One Fight, One Future" concept, multi-component integration provides for a better understanding of each component's role in achieving victory.

USARPAC trains Army Forces for support of military operations and peacetime engagements in order to contribute to decisive victory and promote regional stability. USARPAC solicits, awards, and administers contracts in support of mission-related requirements, including administrative supplies and services, waste disposal, food services, minor construction, facilities, maintenance and repair, grounds maintenance, ADP equipment and services, and laundry services.

Following World War II, numerous Army headquarters in the central Pacific were consolidated with the goal of forming a single Army command based in Hawaii. In 1957, the U.S. Army, Pacific (USARPAC) was established at Fort Shafter, following inactivation of the Far East Command. As Army component of the unified command led by the U.S. Commander in Chief Pacific, USARPAC was assigned a threefold mission: Provide necessary ground Army combat forces; Support those forces administratively and logistically; and Provide reserves and contingency plans to meet any ground threat to United States interests in the Pacific.

On March 23, 1979, The Department of the Army announced the establishment of the U.S. Army Western Command (WESTCOM). Then, a decade later, U.S. Army forces in the Pacific were further consolidated. Army units in Alaska and in Japan were placed under the command of the Fort Shafter headquarters, which was once again designated U.S. Army, Pacific. The new command was formally reestablished on August 30, 1990.

In the years since the end of the Vietnam War, Army forces in the Pacific have participated in major peacekeeping operations in the Sinai Desert, and have provided humanitarian and disaster relief missions in Bangladesh, the Philippines, Guam, and the island of Kauai.

Although fully trained for warfare, USARPAC soldiers are also skilled in conducting operations other than war. Whether it is assuring order among refugees at Guantanamo, providing flood relief in the deltas of South Asia, or maintaining a cease fire in the Middle East, USARPAC personnel operate far and wide in peacekeeping and humanitarian missions. In late 1994, fully one half of the 25th Infantry Division deployed to Haiti as the United States and other governments worked to restore democracy to that unfortunate nation. Two years later, USARPAC peacekeepers went to Bosnia to help restore hope to that warshattered land. 

Joint Rear Area Coordination (JRAC)

The United States Army Pacific (USARPAC), in partnership with local, state and federal authorities, have developed a plan of preparedness for the state of Hawaii. The Commander-in-Chief, Pacific Command, has identified the USARPAC as the executive agent for joint rear area coordination (JRAC). This task is normally accomplished in a wartime theater of operation, but in this case, it is being accomplished for the state of Hawaii. Teaming with local and state civil organizations and federal agencies, JRAC-Hawaii (HI) has accomplished a significant amount in the short time since Sept. 11.

JRAC-HI is protecting its military installations by reducing and restricting entry points using roving patrols. Guard duties have completely changed. Guards must now understand the changing dynamics of a more dangerous world, and must learn to expect the unexpected. Military installations worldwide are now on the front lines and are the subject of surveillance and probes more than ever before. Guards must be more alert to activities both on and off the installations, and they must constantly vary security procedure patterns to eliminate predictability. They must also be linked to local law enforcement and must be the beneficiaries and target audience of a regular joint and interagency intelligence summary. Because of these changing conditions, JRAC-HI reinstituted more formalized guard mounts and instructions tailored to the current operational environment.

JRAC-HI has identified mission essential or vulnerable areas (MEVAs) both on and off the installations. MEVAs are facilities and capabilities essential to accomplishing the military mission. These MEVAs have been thoroughly assessed and security needs addressed. Tailored after general defense plan (GDP) battle books from the Cold War in Europe, MEVA folders detail every aspect relevant to the defense of these critical sites. Local civil authorities have done the same with over 150 of their own MEVAs and both the civil and military authorities regularly conduct site surveys.

JRAC-HI has fine-tuned  procedures for providing military support to civil authorities (MSCA) in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. As the executive agent for MSCA in Hawaii, American Samoa, and neighboring islands, JRAC-HI provides a defense-coordinating officer to coordinate military support of civilian consequence management operations. Even before Sept. 11, JRAC-HI maintained a close relationship with local and state government leaders, who can leverage many standing MSCA concepts and plans as the JRAC operation comes together. JRAC-HI's participation in steering committees and plenary groups, such as the Hawaii Emergency Preparedness Executive Committee, the Hawaii Energy Council and the Joint Armed Services/State of Hawaii Civil Defense Coordinating Committee, is instrumental in sharing information and developing joint and civil-military solutions to emerging challenges.

JRAC-HI has established quick reaction forces (QRFs) drawn from both U.S. Marine Corps and Army units. These QRFs are capable of moving on short notice by air or road to any place in the state to provide additional security or to assist in any other way. While awaiting adjudication at the national level on the procedures for employing those forces in domestic situations, JRAC-HI is regularly conducting joint training with civil authorities.

JRAC-HI has worked to identify seams in its collective efforts to secure Hawaii's soil and people. This coordination is taking place with all the military services in Hawaii, state and local civil defense (CD), U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), National Guard (NG), Honolulu Police Department (HPD), fire departments, and a host of other local and federal government agencies such as the state health and transportation departments. Also included in this effort are the FBI, Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), U.S. Customs Service (USCS) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), as well as selected private firms and enterprises involved in supporting Hawaii's critical infrastructure. The Joint Interagency Planning Group, established by USARPAC within days of the attacks, has been the principal driver behind this effort.
