We The People created rudimentary tools to build civilization. We The People created the wheel to make civilization move. We The People harnessed fire which has tempered civilization. We The People have survived famine and disease. We The People have fought off tyrants. We The People yearn to live Free. We The People believe in building our own better tomorrow. We The People will not be ruled.
We The People have suffered under oppression. We The People were victimized by the organized religion of the church through times such as the Spanish Inquisition. We The People have had our wealth stolen by governments. We The People have been made slaves by governments. We The People have been marched into death camps by governments. We The People have fought back. We The People will not be ruled.
We The People fought a Revolution against the rule of a King. We the people have fought a Revolution to stop taxation without representation. We The People have fought a Revolution to keep government representatives from invading the privacy of our homes by force and without legal authority. We The People have fought a Revolution to limit the powers of government. We The People have killed and died to secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and for our posterity. We The People will not be ruled.
We The People looked at the lessons of the history of mankind and fashioned a founding document for a new Nation to guarantee the God-given Natural Rights of all. We The People call this the Constitution of the United States of America. We The People have placed our trust in our ability to live our own lives, each individual according to his or her own conscience. We The People reserve the Right to resist any government which ceases to recognize our Constitutional Rights. We The People will fight any enemy to our liberty, foreign and/or domestic. We The People will not be ruled.
“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” – The Preamble of the Constitution of the United States of America
“To secure these Rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” – The Declaration of Independence
We The People do not consent to being bankrupted by the irresponsible spending of the federal government. We The People do not consent to our government printing fiat money at a private bank, which devalues all of our wealth and savings. We The People do not consent to having our taxes raised any more. We The People do not consent to sending our military to perpetually occupy foreign peoples for political rhetoric and corporate interests. We The People do not consent to the suspension of Due Process. We The People will protect ourselves, our Country and our Constitutional Rights from illegal government. We The People will not be ruled.
