by the Continental Congress 2009
From the preface:
Across many administrations and years, by each branch of government, through each major political party, the Constitution for The United States has been violated.
The People have formally Petitioned the Government for Redress of the violations in the most humble of terms.
The People and their Petitions have been ignored. Each un-remedied violation has taken its toll with dire impact on our economic interests, our people, our quality and way of life and our international and national reputations.
We hold this Truth to be Self- Evident:
Any action, by any branch of the Government, that is repugnant to the Constitution, is null and void.
On November 11, 2009, and for eleven days continuing morning, noon and night, Citizens of America gathered in St. Charles, Illinois, as Delegates from each of forty-eight States, to discuss these violations, and Government's refusal to be held accountable, and to recommend a course of action to restore Constitutional Obedience in a Constitutional Republic now challenged to Its core.
These were not professional legislators, wordsmiths or attorneys. These were ordinary, non-aligned citizens from across America and all walks of life.
They set aside their lives for this Assembly. They represent You and Me, the Free People of America. The conclusion of their efforts is This Document called "Articles of Freedom".
It is proposed that these Articles be distributed to All in the Land with theintent to draw the attention and courage of a “goodly number of millions ofPeople” who, entitled to their Freedom and essential to Its maintenance, Arise to Restore the Constitution for the United States of America.
Then and only then shall America‟s Destiny be Fulfilled.
