WRAM - We dedicate our hearts,minds and bodies to protecting our great Republic!
A declaration being circulated in various circles, passed on to me via a contact. As far as I am concerned it is the only fitting reply to the passage of the NDAA. Feel free to make copies, pamphlets etc and circulate as able. They need to understand the possible unintended consequences of what they have done.
Whereas, on the 14th of December, 2011, the House of Representatives of these United States voted, in the form of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, in favor of indefinite military detention, without charges, of American citizens on American soil, without due process of law, at the discretion of the government alone;
Whereas, on the 15th of December, 2011, the Senate of these United States voted in favor of the same bill;
Whereas, on the 31st of December, the President of these United States signed the same bill into law;
Whereas, the proscription against the use of military force to police the populous has been an essential feature of American civic life and civic liberty since the arrival of our civilization upon this continent;
Whereas, the wanton violation of this proscription was one of the chief causes of the separation of the American people from their government in Great Britain;
Whereas, the Constitution so chartering the government of these United States, in Article III Section III, states that “No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.”
Whereas, the Constitution so chartering the government of these United States, in the Fifth Amendment, states that no person shall be “deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law”;
Whereas, the House of Representatives, the Senate, and the President of these United States have disregarded the plain text of the Constitution;
Whereas, in openly disregarding its founding document, the government of these United States has lost any semblance of legitimacy;
Whereas, the use of such draconian measures has been an essential feature of the enforcement of tyranny by every totalitarian governments of the 20th century;
Whereas, the use of such draconian measures is carefully calculated to quash all political dissent amongst a captive people;
Whereas, the codification of such draconian measures effectively nullifies all civil liberties the people may hope to hold;
And whereas, the codification of such draconian measures is an act of war against the populous at large;
Therefore, be it declared that a STATE OF WAR formally exists between the Government of these United States and the People of these United States, perpetrated by that Government against the People.
We, the People of these United States, declare any and all attempts to enforce the provisions of the NDAA to be unlawful, void, and of no force.
We declare ALL WHO voted in favor of the NDAA, and ALL WHO attempt to enforce the NDAA to be traitors to these United States, punishable under law.
We SHALL DISOBEY, APPREHEND, OR RESIST WITH FORCE, at our discretion, any person who attempts to enforce the provisions of the NDAA.
We SHALL NOT aggress against any Federal, State or local government employee who shall not attempt to enforce or aid and abet the enforcement of the NDAA, they being as trapped as the rest of the populous.
Such STATE OF WAR shall continue until the NDAA is stricken from the code of law, and all who had hand in the NDAA are removed from positions of power.
I'm not ready to cry out "the sky is falling" just yet, however, you've put out some sound advise Colorado Badger! Most of what you've advised should have been in place by now, and is in place in many areas, but we do have folks waking up daily, and this is exactly what they need to be doing, as well as anyone else that hasn't yet. Good post!
This is a reply I got back from my Congressman, Perlmutter...
January 13, 2012
Thank you for contacting me regarding your opposition to the National Defense Authorization Act. I appreciate hearing from you on such an important issue because it enables me to better represent the beliefs and values of our district.
The National Defense Authorization Act establishes the policies which govern the Department of Defense. It includes Section 1021 which instructs the military to arrest and detain any individual suspected of terrorism, or even supporting terrorism through indirect means. Some Americans believe this applies to U.S. citizens arrested in the United States. However, Senator Feinstein adopted an amendment (Subsection (e)) which states clearly that Section 1021 does not change existing laws which relate to U.S. citizens involved in terrorist activity. Although I am pleased this provision was added to protect U.S. citizens, I believe it can be improved further. I will work with my colleagues to ensure U.S. citizens receive due process under the law. Rest assured as Congress debates this legislation I will keep your concerns in mind.
I encourage you to continue to contact me about the issues that are important to you. Please visit our website www.perlmutter.house.gov where you can also sign up for my electronic newsletter and receive periodic updates on my activities as your Representative in Washington.

Good post, saved it also
http://dev.republicoftheunitedstates.org/introduction/ Like I said in another post here on this site. I DO Believe this IS our best chance at organization and taking our nation back Peacefully !
The best chance we got to regain our nation doesnt reside in just one site!! It resides in WE THE PEOPLE GETTING INVOLVED!! Time to pay attention to what goes on in D.C. and study those bills they pass or are in committee! Then politely sound off like ya got a pair!!
ALL of those "bills" USA Inc. passes are NULL and VOID. They Are UN-Constitutional!!! We the People need to ORGANIZE !!! Period. First in small local groups, then expndin outwards. I think our restored Republic gives us All the best chance at accomplishin that.
