The Right of Non-Compliance and Rebellion in America

14 Apr

When we declared our independence from Great Britain we stated the reasons for that action, calling on the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God. We established that our rights came from our Creator, not the crown, and that we had a natural right to establish government for the purposes of aiding in securing our individual natural rights within a voluntary society formed for that purpose. In the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, these principles are stated very eloquently:

"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,"

Political power comes through the consent of the people to their government; without our compliance, agencies and their agents have no power over us as long as we retain the arms to resist their demands, since we vastly outnumber them and our consent only extends to those powers we granted through the Constitution. When a government begins to ignore our will and attack the life, liberty, and property of its people it has lost its legitimacy; there is no obligation for the people to comply with its wishes and demands. In fact, it becomes the duty of the people to oppose such action and remove the tyrants from power.

"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 hath shewn, 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 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." – Declaration of Independence, 1776.

In America the law must conform to the will of the people and our will is expressed by the Constitution and Bill of Rights; the Federal government only has the powers clearly defined and ratified by the states… nothing more. Today both state and Federal governments think they're our masters; that the limitations we impose on them through the Constitution and Bill of Rights no longer apply to them and are attacking our rights in every aspect of our lives. Isn't it time we restore the blessings of liberty by removing the people attacking our rights from office and removing our consent to their laws in contravention of the Constitution?

  1. In order to leave our Constitution and The Bill of Rights alone and unscathed, maybe the time is right to consider a NEW Declaration of Independence. The following was sent to me recently, but I have not yet been able to determine the Author. With that being said, there are a few reasons why the following may be the answer. I’m intrigued by the idea because I can see where a few minor changes may need to be made, and believe there is one tricky issue that should be considered at the same time… We need to outlaw and forever forbid Political Parties in the USA. Our Founders were also correct about this topic, but this will have to wait until another time!

    Thank you.

      • Thomas…. You wrote “I have no intention of declaring independence from our present Constitution and Bill of Rights…”, and nor do I. Didn’t I make that clear in my very first sentence? Our differences are very very slight, with both wanting the same outcome. However, I would push hard for abolishing political parties to coincide with ratification of a ‘New Dec’. The political party system has run it’s course and has done more harm than good, so this is the perfect time to say adios to them.

        • Yes you did… sorry but the title Declaration of Independence kind of threw me. I shared that document on my Facebook timeline; it is very well written.

          I too want to see the end of political parties. People tend to have more loyalty to the party than the Constitution. I would also like to repeal the amendment that allowed the candidate for President to choose the Vice-President. I like the idea of having a Vice-President nipping at the heels of the President… would discourage bad conduct on the part of both.

          Washington advised us to abandon party politics but like many things in his Farewell Address the progressives worked hard late in the 19th century undermine them.
