Our purpose, the delegates of the III Congress, is to reassert and claim our rights before the nation; to recognize the abridgements of certain rights by the government of the United States; to declare that legislation passed and signed into law by individuals violating their oaths to defend the Constitution of the United States are null and void; and to recognize that the Bill of Rights stand as originally drafted.
Statements of Fact
1. Rights are not subject to democratic rule; they are absolute and individual given by Our Creator as stated clearly in the Declaration of Independence. As such, no popular movement of the people or their governments can alienate these rights from the individual.
2. That the government of the United States was founded upon the principles of individual rights and the protection thereof by limiting the power of the government.
3. That oaths are given to public servants prior to taking office as a means to ensure their fidelity to the principles of individual liberty and limited government.
4. That the Constitution is a charter between the people of the United States and the government called upon to administer the people’s will.
5. That the administration of the people’s will requires careful and judicious use of the public treasury.
6. That the people have the absolute right to alter or abolish a government that is outside of its charter and acting against the principles it is sworn to defend.
1. It is found that the greater share of the federal representatives, senators, the President and judges of all stations, including the Supreme Court are in violation of their oaths to defend the Constitution of the United States.
2. It is found that by passing legislation or compliance with Executive Orders which violate the rights of its citizens the federal government officials involved are in violation of their oaths.
3. It is found that by broad interpretation of individual words in the Constitution that the spirit and purpose of the Constitution have been violated.
4. It is found that the federal government in place has been corrupted and is operating outside of its charter and without the consent of the governed.
5. It is found that the elected representatives, senators and president have abused the public treasury, incurred more debt than can reasonably be expected to be repaid, have made fiduciary promises to generations that are impossible to fulfill and have enslaved future generations to either an unbearable debt, miserable poverty or both.
6. It is found that the federal government and the agents thereof have refused to enforce laws and duties of the federal government and have interfered in the laws and duties of the state governments to the detriment of the citizens of the United States and/or the citizens of the several states.
Since relief from this corruption is not to be found within the constructs of a vastly corrupted federal system, it is the view of the III Congress that it has the right and duty to enlist aid in opposition to the standing government in order to force compliance with the Constitution. That in no way is the III Congress involved in insurrection or attempting to overthrow the government of the United States of America. That the sole purpose of its opposition to the corrupt system is to reestablish and restore the legitimacy of the federal government and to demand of our elected officials that they not only take the oath of office, but abide by it.
Having witnessed the failure of all previous efforts to find a champion for our rights within the system, it has become clear to the delegates of the III Congress that a different approach is required while what few rights of privacy and liberty are still available. Time is of the essence.
