Some people believe that the way to reform our corrupted legal system and government is to convene a Third Continental Congress. The document below is resolution for such a Congress proposed by Dessie Andrews, who is a legal researcher.  It is an outstanding work in progress that we wholeheartedly endorse.  If you would like to write Dessie, you can do so at:


The unanimous Declaration of Independence of the fifty united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one nation of Sovereigns to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men and women 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. 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 shown, 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. Such has been the patient sufferance of Government. The history of the present regime and all those regimes leading up to this time, from the very foundation and grant of the limited delegation of authority in the contract known as the United States Constitution is a history of repeated injuries and usurpation, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States and their People. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to an august body of advisors to Congress.

            A government functions as a corporation. Inasmuch as every government is an artificial person, an abstraction, and a creature of the mind only, a government can interface only with other artificial persons. The imaginary—having neither actuality nor substance – is foreclosed from creating and attaining parity with the tangible. The legal manifestation of this is that no government, as well as any law, agency, aspect, court, etc., can concern itself with anything other than corporate artificial persons and the contracts between them.

            A corporation, to remain in business, must abide by its corporate charter and can assume no more power than those granted it by its creators.   The present corporation, the “government” of the United States, or United States of America, has long ago burst its corporate bonds and assumed control of its Grantors. This can no longer be tolerated and must end. The trustees of this sacred trust have run amok.

They have laid war and emergency powers over this land in order to create chaos and subject the People to military rule.

They have divested the People of their freeholds in order to steal their electoral rights in exchange for voting franchises. The Reconstruction Acts.

They have systematically and with great patience stolen the birthright of every American and state Citizen and replaced it with a yoke of duties and obligations to the created creature.

They have codified the Law and overlaid it with codes and statutes. The Revised Statutes of the United States in 1878.

They have not enacted law, as Constitutionally mandated, since 1879, but rather, have initiated “public policy”.

They have created a “government” outside the Charter and pretend to fill the offices which have remained vacant since 1871. In so doing, they ended the separation of powers guaranteed to the People, ending any responsibilities assumed under the mantle of the office of officer and became one body of employees.   The Civil Service Act of 1883.

They have legislated away the Peoples’ Circuit courts. The Judiciary Act of 1911.

They have created a central bank in defiance of the Framer’s express wishes and orders. Federal Reserve Act of 1913

They have abolished the several States and State Citizens with the passage of the 17th Amendment in 1913.

They have given the substance of every state Citizen to a private corporation, the Federal Reserve, with the Glass-Steagal Act of 1933. 

They have stolen the assets, energy, property and futures of every state Citizen and pledged them to foreign corporations. 

They have openly declared the People to be enemies of the State.

They have initiated policies in violation of the takings clause in their Corporate charter, in order to fund social programs and redistribute wealth.

They have undermined the educational process in the several States and created a slave force with the uneducated.

They have snatched the children from their natural parents through the use of the doctrine of parens patriae.

They, by their charter, being confined to the ten mile square area known as Washington DC, have created agencies to justify their intrusion upon and into the several States

They have eliminated the People’s courts and a duly elected Congress and left the People with no redress of grievances.

They have instituted Roman civil law on the land under the guise of Corporate courts. 

They have implemented a Bar Association to still the voice of the People in their Corporate courts.

They have tricked the People into invisible contracts with guile and deceit and without full disclosure, into exchanging their Sovereign standing for that of a Corporate employee status.

They hold the People in slavery with their presumptions, their courts and their police powers. 

They have waged war and committed unspeakable atrocities in my name on innocent peoples and nations, without declaring war. 

They have obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing to Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers, instead they sit in administrative, corporate courts.

They have made Judges dependent on their will alone, for the tenure of their offices and the amount and payment of their salaries.

The have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of employees, masquerading as Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

They have kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the consent of the legislatures, by declaring constant and chronic emergencies.

They have affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil powers.
They have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving their Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation.

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us.

For protecting them, by a mock Trial or investigation, from punishment for any Murders or other atrocities they should commit on the Inhabitants of the several States.

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent..

For depriving us of the benefits of Trial by Jury.

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments.

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

They have abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of their Protection and waging War against us.

They have brought the law of the seas onto the land, bringing with it its system of taxes, fines and penalties, thus destroying the lives of our people.

They are, at this time, transporting large Armies to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of the leaders of a civilized nation.

They have bankrupted the United States corporation too many times to count, have initiated Reorganization after Reorganization, each time being more onerous to the People and each time divesting them of more rights and replacing them with government issued privileges and benefits.

They have created worthless military scrip, removed all backing of substance of any currency and forced the People to trade with worthless scrip and credit, thereby stealing the substance of the People and eroding their worth with inflation.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms. Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Government Pretender whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the holder of the sacred trust of a free people.

The actors conspiring under color of law to undermine the integrity and substance of the People, have accomplished these acts by counterfeiting the Seals of States and Offices, to deceive the People.

For these reasons and more, I, one of the descendants of the declarers of the Declaration of Independence of 1776 do solemnly Publish and Declare, That the People of the several States are, and of Right ought to be, FREE AND INDEPENDENT PEOPLE OF THE SEVERAL STATES; that they are absolved from all Allegiance to the corporate United States of America, that they no longer have a republican, representative form of government. That the employees of the United States of America long ago exceeded their trust which was granted to them by the People with limited delegation of powers. That, as Creators of the Corporation known as the United States of America, we hereby disband and dissolve the corporate charter which was granted in trust.

That I, the undersigned, was endowed with unalienable rights from my Creator. That I rely on the Protection of divine Providence, and with this compact, pledge to my fellow men and women my Life, my Fortune and my sacred Honor.
