In Marin, the Republic of California, April 16, 2020.
Declaration of the Republic of California,
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 Laws of Nature provide, a respect to the opinions of humankind requires that they should declare the cause which impels them to the separation.
We hold this to be self-evident, that all humans are created equal, that they are endowed with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among us, deriving 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 has shown, that humankind 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 these States; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present US president(s) is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over us. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
The US President has violated his oath by allowing thousands of humans to perish needlessly from a global pandemic, he directly avoided taking immediate, clear and obvious actions.
When steps were taken by the US Congress to remove him. A partisan, corrupt Chief Justice of the Supreme Court failed to act.
POTUS has lied repeatedly to the American people and has cost lives.
POTUS was installed by agents of organized crime families.
POTUS has been compromised by agents of foreign and domestic actors.
The US Congress has been compromised by the same agents.
I, therefore, appeal to the peoples of the world for the rectitude of my intentions, do, as a free human, solemnly publish and declare, That these United States are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the United States government, and that all political connection between them and the United States, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, we have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do.
David Curtis, the Republic of California
