Declare Your Personal Independence: I Hereby Secede

You Can't Mace An Idea - Anthony Freda Art
Roger Young, Contributing Writer
Activist Post

Secession is a topic that seems to increasingly pop up in conversation, discussion, and written opinion.

I believe that more people every day are seeing state secession as a viable and even necessary action to counteract increasing personal oppression, stolen liberties, and monetary incompetence and thievery by the United States Government.

According to the Declaration of Independence, when such conditions become intolerable for the people, "it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

But why wait for your state to secede? In the meantime, why not make a personal declaration of secession? Below is my idea of what a personal declaration would look like. I encourage others to make this same declaration and add or subtract any statements you deem relevant. Or write your own. Make copies and distribute to friends and relatives, encouraging them to do likewise. By all means, send copies to your Congress critters and other ruling tyrants. Convey the message that you no longer willingly submit to their arbitrary rules, and the theft and violence committed against you personally and against others in your name.

Some will dismiss such a declaration as merely symbolic, lacking any legitimate authority. By how does it contain any less authority than a state and constitution created by others a couple centuries before you were born? Here is my declaration:

I, Roger Young, a sovereign, free-born individual, and a child of God/Nature, do hereby declare my personal secession from the political entity known as the "United States of America." Though reason tells me that this entity has no inherent legitimacy toward ruling my life (as this arrangement was not created by me, nor obtained my consent), I find it necessary to declare such a separation.

By this act of secession, I hereby withdraw any present and future consent toward being ruled by this authoritarian organization. Any laws, edicts, regulations, executive orders, or demands issued by this organization will be ignored as so much verbal static emanating from tyrants lacking any legitimate authority.

By this act of secession, I declare I will no longer consent to being described as a willing citizen or subject, collectively enslaved under the rule of the "United States Government," nor its permanently ensconced ruling class. I hereby refuse to be labeled a participant of, nor a collaborator with, the criminal actions executed by those individuals declaring to be representatives, employees, or agents of the "United States Government." Such actions include waging war and stealing the property and wealth of other individuals. Any such actions declared to "be in my name" or "for my benefit or protection" will be considered blatantly fraudulent. I will hereby consider myself only as a sovereign individual residing on the North American continent, responsible only for the actions I commit as an individual.

By this act of secession, I will no longer be a party to the collectivist "we" used to describe those residing within the geographical boundaries claimed by some as the "United States of America." I will no longer be subject to the responsibilities, agreements, debts, or liabilities, claimed by that institution and "shared" by its subjects

By this act of secession, I will no longer consider my body subject to the rules and regulations of that entity known as the "United States Government." Any attempt to restrict my consumption of any food or drug will be branded as illegitimate and ignored. Any attempt to actively apply such restrictions by this entity will be considered an act of violence and dealt with accordingly in a peaceful, though effective and persuasive, manner.

By this act of secession, I will no longer consider my physical, property (tangible or intangible) subject to any "laws" or regulations put forth by the entity known as the "United States Government." Any taking or taxing of such property will be considered theft and will be dealt with accordingly in a peaceful, though effective and persuasive, manner.

By this act of secession, I will no longer deem any restrictions, regulations, or limits on the use of my labor as legitimate, nor the taking or taxing of the fruits of such activity. The interference in the voluntary, contractual associations and agreements that involve my personal labor will not be tolerated. Such agreements and contracts will be considered sacrosanct and immune to the dictates and interventions from that entity known as the "United States Government."

By this act of secession, I will no longer maintain any allegiance or loyalty to the political abstraction named "The United States of America." I will not recognize its "boundaries" as legitimate nor use their existence as a regulator or hindrance toward interacting with those individuals who reside outside said "boundaries." I will also declare no aggressive intentions toward destruction or take-over of this entity. I will also by this act declare no immediate allegiance or loyalty to any other present or future political abstraction.

By this act of secession, I hereby declare absolutely no reverence or respect for that political entity known as the "United States of America" nor its self-declared ruling body known as the "United States Government." I will from this time forward view both with suspicion and as dangerous predators, preying on the lives, fortunes, and liberties of free individuals.

By this act of secession, I will not automatically obey any illegitimate "laws" or orders, not previously mentioned, put forth by that entity known as the "United States Government." Any perceived obedience by me will be the result of carefully calculated submission to an entity exhibiting superior firepower.

Any state agents sent forth by the "United States Government" to contact me will be dealt the equivalent respect and kindness that is shown toward me by such agents. Any perceived obedience by me will be the result of carefully calculated submission to an entity and its agents exhibiting superior firepower.

By this act of secession, I will not tolerate, as a free-living, free-thinking, peaceful individual, any violent, unjustified attacks on other such individuals and private organizations or their property by this entity known as the "United States Government." I will utilize all available time, talents, and resources available to me to expose and ridicule those agents of the "United States Government" that initiate such attacks. I will also help and support any active, peaceful countermeasures to help prevent or overturn any such violent, aggressive actions against sovereign lives and property.

By this act of secession, I will no longer listen to any speeches, comments, or information communicated by that entity known as the "United States Government." All such information will be instantly declared not credible and subject to verification and confirmation by reliable, non-state sources. Any verbal or written communication emanating from this entity will automatically be considered a lie until proven otherwise.

By this act of secession I remain open to the idea of being ruled by similar such entities, but such an action will occur only with unequivocal consent by me and legitimized by mutual contractual agreement.

By this act of secession, I do not make the arrogant assumption of speaking for other sovereign, free-born individuals. This declaration is relevant only to me and not to any other sovereign individuals known personally to me or related by birth. However, I encourage other like-minded individuals to do the same. I encourage and even implore them to stand up for their lives, liberties and property. I passionately advise they throw off the yoke of bondage that inhibits, strangles, and even kills them, destroys and steals their wealth and property, and poisons the futures of all who seek to live unchained. No shedding of blood or violent extremism is necessary. Just take the time to officially declare withdrawal of your consent.

declaration are fine, but its your actions that are more important. YOU (in all caps) have contracts, albeit invisible contracts as they are, to fulfill unless you notify the US Treasury (among others) of your intentions to sever the contract based on fraud, racketeering or monopolistic activity between YOU and the government (Inc.). For example, that means you should not be using the "banking system" and should be relying on cash and money orders to conduct business. Any benefits taken from the "system" or matrix, is evidential towards you accepting the contractual obligations.

As I understand it also, to demonstrate sovereignty, you must not be reliant on any government resources or handouts. So negate your social security contracts and banking contracts (read the fine print on the application to open a bank account) in writing and with your actions. Until you declare your sovereignty, you are liable to the diabolical shitheads that have served up your virtual reality. Its not retro. So don't stop paying taxes until your declarations and statements are publicly noted and accepted. And be aware of what the systems offers and how you are obligated after accepting such offers even though you may not understand the commitment.

Good article and a good subject.

Good for Roger. I admire people with BALLS. Much better than people just spouting their opinion to shout down those who show them

Show you are not an idiot and help take back the republic from the molester army. They want to lose and they are out-manned, out-gunned, are all indictable for aiding and abetting in the murders of 9-11 or are accessories after the fact, plus many other lethal attacks, and they lack the high moral ground.

The advantage you seek in allof this does not exist. You are being mugged and it will not be up to you to decide if you survive unless you can neutralie your attacker. Be a tiger. And be like water.

Why not print a how to guide in common law to declare yourself a human being, not a person, which is a corporation under their jurisdiction.

You may also want to include in the declaration:
entity known as the "United States of America Incorporated."

Challenge the validity of laws against plants and food! That is your Sovereign right in a constitutional republic!

In the name of God, Why stop at the state level. The state government will be no better. Go for the county level. We can get along perfectly well with just counties. And, make sure that those are severly limited in their scope and powers.

Anonymous said...

Here is an idea: Lets not even have county governments. Lets think more on the level of neighborhoods, and then only very limited rule.

Cogent and philosophically sound vis a vis the founders intent.

They need worker bees, called employees, in their companies. Withdraw physically and literally. Quit your "job". Stop being an employee. Give up the "benefit" of prosperity, and be content to work with your hands and meet your own needs and get by with a lot less than you are accustomed to. Cable TV, cell phones, newspapers, credit cards, mortgage, car payments, etc. If it costs you something on a monthly basis, you are a willing slave while you have it. Cut those strings. Let go. Get rustic. Take that thermostat off your wall, and find some other way to heat and cool your house. Find a house and a car within your means, that you can pay for with your current assets.

ME, I am working on doing just what you suggested--I'm not all the way there yet but I've done a LOT. I would add, grow as much of your own food as possible, take your kids out of the government brainwashing and tracking centers (aka schools) and start networking with like-minded folks. It is quite liberating!

He needs to say he will abide by COMMON LAW rather than the jewish run "legal system".

How about dismantling all secret societies and making them an enemy of the free people. We could hunt them. Perhaps ordering the freemasons lodges all around the world to be leveled. Why can't we crack down on this- we are so many and they are so few. And boy are they scared as they should be!!

All of the above declaration comments notwithstanding, we need numbers of healthy, lawful, sovereign human beings otherwise all of the paperwork, statements and whatever, mean absolutely nothing. When an imposter, usurper, unqualified, illegal can be elected president, it is the masses-r-asses that must be educated. If that imposter, usurper gets elected again, forget about any such declarations! said...

Been out of the system for over 7 years!!

Ah, personal secession. Also known as treason.

Also, you ARE aware that you can forfeit your citizenship at any time, right? Why don't you write something after you've done that?
