The Conservative Declaration of Independence

The Declaration of the Conservatives of United States of America
July 22, 2016
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one group of 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 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 political party of that government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new political party, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its actions in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that political parties 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 a party, and to provide new guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of conservatives; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former system of political allegiance. The history of the present Republican Party is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over conservatives. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.
They have refused to protect our Constitution against attacks from political foes and often joined them in attacks against our religious freedom, freedom of speech, right to bear arms, sovereignty of our States, illegal search and seizure and right to equal treatment under the law among other abuses.

 

They have assisted the growth of government far beyond its legal bounds to control every aspect of our lives.

They have continued to spend money that we do not have on programs that we do not want for ends that we do not need.  They have eroded the fiscal solvency of this great Country.

They have refused to secure our borders, which is the right and duty of any independent nation.

They have ceded the authority given to the Congress to unelected bureaucracies to abuse as they see fit.

They have allowed these bureaucracies to target conservatives for political reasons at the direction of the Executive branch.

They have allowed our Department of Justice to arm drug cartels, in an effort to compile data to further restrict our right to bear arms, and in doing so have facilitated the murder of one of our Border Patrol agents and foreigners alike.

They have allowed the FBI and Department of Justice to declare that a former Secretary of State is above the law due to her position in our political system, despite of all the evidence and their own conclusions.

They have refused to contain the Executive branch as a co-equal branch of government, allowing unconstitutional abuses to go weakly challenged or not challenged at all.

They have allowed the Supreme Court of the United States to rewrite laws and create rights that do not exist, while allowing the government to restrict rights clearly identified in our Constitution as those that “shall not be infringed”.

They have campaigned on our conservative ideas and then immediately worked against us as soon as the election ends.

They attack conservatives with more vindictiveness and hatred than they do the opposition party.

They have stated their desire to crush conservatives.

They have insisted that we support repulsive candidates of their choosing for the good of the party, while not supporting and sabotaging candidates of our choosing.

They have agreed to the use of our tax funds for unconstitutional and morally repulsive actions.

They have turned public service into a career for power, prestige and personal gain, instead of a humble obligation to protect the rights given by our Creator.

They have used political posturing and gamesmanship in attempt to deceive us into believing that they are working in our best interest.

They are steeped in corruption and work, not for the people that elect them, but for the lobbyist and corporate donors who fund their never-ending campaign.

They have thrown the weight of the party behind nominees that paint in pale pastels instead of presenting bold colors to the American people.

They have silenced the representative structure of the Republican National  Convention to correct a serious mistake, in spite of the delegates having the full ability and authority to do so.

They have bypassed their own rules to size power and circumvent the grassroots of the party, lying and ignoring the will of the delegates in favor of the party leadership.

They have sacrificed what morality and character that remained in a misguided loyalty to modern tradition.

They have rejected a call to vote based on conscience, freedom and the Constitution as these are now opposed to the desires of the party.

They have nominated the most unfit person to ever seriously content for the office of President of the United States.

They have affirmed the worst stereotypes of the Republican Party by nominating repugnant, authoritarian as the nominee for President, causing irreparable damage to the Party.

They have agreed to be represented by a racist sympathizer, sociopath, immoral, vulgar, incoherent, lying, deceiving, conniving, womanizing buffoon, rather than reject this man for someone with moral character that believes in the stated values of the Party.

They have nominated a man who spent the vast majority of his life as a member of the opposing party, funding to its leaders and even to its current nominee for President of the United States.

 

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 party, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define corruption and has chosen to be led by a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruling party of a free people.

Nor have we been wanting in our attentions to our Republican brethren. We have warned them, from time to time, of attempts by their leaders to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our loyalty and value to the party. 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 mankind, enemies in politics, in life friends.

WE, THEREFORE, the CONSERVATIVES of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, assembled together in mind, though not not in body, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name and by the authority of the good people who share our political philosophy, solemnly publish and declare, That the CONSERVATIVES are, and of right ought to be, FREE AND INDEPENDENT PEOPLE; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the Republican Party and that all political connection between them and the Republican Party is, and ought to be, totally dissolved; and that, as free and independent people, they have full power to nominate candidates, have access to ballots, raise funding, circulate petitions, enroll members, and do all other acts and things which independent people of like political minds may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.
