AMERIJERICHO DECLARATION of INDEPENDENCE
Official Date of Public Notification: July 4, 2008
The unanimous Declaration of the Amerijericho founder and
supporters, When in the Course of human events, it becomes
necessary for one people 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 noble causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men 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
rightly 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 Christians;
and such is now the necessity which constrains us
to alter our former Systems of Government.
The history of the present United States of America is a history
of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the
establishment of an absolute Tyranny over the lives of Christians.
To prove ourselves, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
The American government has refused to Assent to High Laws,
the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. It has
forbidden we the Christian people to pass Laws of immediate and
pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till their
Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, the designated
government officials have utterly neglected to attend to them.
The American government has refused to pass other Laws for the
accommodation of large groups of Christians, unless those people
would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature,
a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
The American government has called together legislative bodies
at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository
of the public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them
into compliance with presumptive, suppressive legal measures.
The American government has dissolved Representative
Houses repeatedly, for opposing with respectful firmness
its consistent invasions on the rights of Christian people.
The American government has refused for a long time, after such
dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative
powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at
large for their exercise; Christians remaining in the mean time
exposed to all the dangers of wicked spiritual invasions from
without, and wicked spiritual convulsions within.
The American government has endeavored to prevent Christians of
this nation; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization
of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations
hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations
of Lands which have been named as Amerijericho.
The American government has obstructed the Administration
of Justice, by refusing respectful Assent to Laws for the purpose
of establishing oppressive anti-Christian Judiciary powers.
The American government has made Judges dependent on its
Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount
and payment of their salaries with no regard to proper
preservation of constitutional rights and privileges.
The American government has erected a multitude of
New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to
harass Christians, and eat out their substance.
The American government has kept among us, in times of peace,
Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
The American government has affected to render the Military
independent of and superior to the Civil power in states.
The American government has combined with others to subject
Christians to a jurisdiction foreign to our spiritual faith, and
unacknowledged by our laws; giving respectful Assent to their
Acts of pretended Legislation: For Quartering large bodies of
armed troops among us: For protecting them, by a mock Trial,
from punishment for any Murders which they should commit:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world: For imposing
Taxes on us without our Consent: For depriving us in many cases,
of the benefits of Trial by Jury: For transporting us beyond Seas
to be tried for pretended offences: For abolishing the free barter
market system, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and
enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit
instrument for introducing the same absolute rule: For taking away
our freedoms, abolishing our most valuable spiritual Laws, and
altering fundamentally the formation of our proper lifestyles:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves
invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
The American government has abdicated Government here,
by declaring us out of its Protection and waging political
War against the promise of religious freedoms.
The American government has plundered our seas, ravaged our
Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
The American government is at this time transporting large Armies
of foreign Mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation
and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty &
perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages,
and totally unworthy a civilized nation.
The American government has constrained our fellow Citizens
taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their
Country, to become the executioners of their friends and
Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
The American government has excited domestic insurrections
amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants
of independent states, the merciless alien Savages, whose
known rule of economic warfare, is an undistinguished
destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of wicked Oppressions We have Petitioned for
Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been
answered only by repeated injury. A government whose character
is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit
to be the ruler of a free people who choose to be Christians.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our heathen brethren.
We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their
legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us.
We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration
and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and
magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common
kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably
interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have
been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity.
We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces
our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of humankind
who choose to be rebellious against Spirit God – who is known
as Lord Jesus Christ – as Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Anonymous Members of the Amerijericho
Advisory Council, in General agreement, Assembled, appealing to
the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do,
in His Name, and by Authority of the good Christians of all nations,
solemnly publish and declare our purpose to be Free and Independent
of all Allegiance to laws which are contrary to the Bible, and that all
political connection between Amerijericho and the United States of
America, is and ought to be totally dissolved during a transitional
period of time; and that as a Free and Independent new state-of-mind
nation, Amerijericho residents have full Power to strive for Peace,
contract Alliances, establish Free Barter Markets, Commerce, and to
do all other Acts and Things which Independent people may of right
do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the
protection of divine Providence, we who are Christians do mutually
pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
Now we are engaged in a great spiritual war between good and
evil, testing whether America, or any nation, so conceived and so
dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that
war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that land, as a place of
transformation for those who here are willing to give their lives for the
noble purpose of establishing the Kingdom of God on Earth as it is in
Heaven. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
Christians in all nations are now invited to enter, inhabit, and
dominate the American land mass presently known as the states of
Tennessee, Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia,
South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia and
Kentucky as either physical or spiritual residents. This new
state-of-mind nation will be formed by servants who are
dedicated to accepting guidance from Lord Jesus Christ.
Let this Amerijericho Declaration of Independence
be made known to all people of like mind.
