|The Betsy Ross Flag|
On this fourth day of July, in the year of our Lord, two-thousand and twelve, this call goes forward to reclaim the liberty that was lost to a once free people. We call upon the people of the United States to pressure their elected representatives, both at the federal and state level, to introduce for ratification by the states, a simple amendment to the United States constitution, either by an act of congress or by constitutional convention. The amendment shall read as follows: "The right of the people in a state, or group of states, to secede from the union of the United States, shall not be infringed, and secession shall be determined by popular vote of the people within said state, or group of states. The states shall retain exclusive power to enforce this article."
The right of secession is what the United States of America was founded upon two-hundred and thirty-six years ago today, when our founding fathers signed the Declaration of Independence. It is a right still supported by the majority of Americans, and it is a right that should be recognised by the United States constitution. Ironically, the constitution currently makes no mention of this right, and that is an oversight we seek to correct. For free men are not truly free unless they have the right to leave. We believe when this right is duly recognised and protected by the constitution of the United States, then and only then, will the federal government truly respect Americans in their other rights, and once again, fiscal responsibility and political sanity may return to our people. Please join us in calling upon our elected representatives, both at the state and federal level, to protect the rights of Americans. May God bless the United States of America!
