When in the course of human events, extraordinary control is concentrated in powers that advance political positions that threaten the continuance of freedom and liberty envisioned in the American Declaration of Independence, it becomes necessary for liberty and freedom lovers to dissociate the social, economic and political bands which have connected them to these destructive powers.

The Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle all humanity the right to refuse to sit idly by or to participate directly or indirectly in the extinction of the God given rights of liberty and freedom.

Now, therefore, with malice toward none and peace toward all we declare the causes which impel this dissociation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all are human beings created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, Freedom of Expression, Freedom of Association, Equality of Opportunity, Individuality, and the Protection of Property.
