THE DECLARATION AND RESOLVES OF THE CONTINENTAL CONGRESS 2009 - MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER AS THE ATTACKS ON THE SECOND AMENDMENT ESCALATE
04-01-2013 3:56 am - John W. Wallace - NY Delegate to CC2009
In November 2009, 116 citizen delegates from 48 states representing the Free People convened as a national assembly for two weeks in St Charles, Illinois to publicly debate our Government's abuses of the Constitution and to develop practical strategies which can bring about compliance with our Freedom documents, not only in our governments at all levels, but in our individual lives.

The Continental Congress 2009 was an undertaking of historical importance. The work of the Congress resulted in a profound Plan to save the Constitution titled the "Articles of Freedom".

It is now time to follow the example of our Founding Fathers, to gather together, discuss the state of our Nation, and prepare, en masse, to implement our Plan of peaceful Civic Action to restore the Light of Liberty.

Just as the First Continental Congress of 1774 issued a statement called the Declaration and Resolves in response to the Intolerable Acts passed by the British Parliament, which outlined colonial objections to the Intolerable Acts, listed a colonial bill of rights, and provided a detailed list of grievances. It was similar to the Declaration of Rights and Grievances, passed by the Stamp Act Congress a decade earlier. The Declaration of the 1774 Continental Congress concluded with an outline of Congress's future plans: to enter into a boycott of British trade (the Continental Association) until their grievances were redressed, to publish addresses to the people of Great Britain and British America, and to send a petition to the King.

The Continental Congress of 2009 has done the same. The delegates have issued a Declaration and Resolves (see below) and have also outlined a future plan in the "Articles of Freedom" (link below). Please take the time to read the Declaration and Resolves and click on the link to see the "Articles of Feedom."

DECLARATION AND RESOLVES OF THE CONTINENTAL CONGRESS 2009

In Defense of a Free People, the time has come to reassert our God-Given, Natural Rights and cast off tyranny…

Let the Facts Reveal: The federal government of the United States of America was instituted to secure the Individual Rights of our citizens and instead now threatens our Life, Liberty and Property through usurpations of the Constitution. Emboldened by our own lack of responsibility and due diligence in these matters, government has exceeded its’ mandate and abandoned those Founding Principles which have made our nation exceptional;

Our servant government has undertaken these unconstitutional actions in direct violation of their enumerated duties, 
to the detriment of the People’s liberty and the sovereignty of our Republic;

Over many years and spanning multiple political administrations, the People who have, in good conscience, attempted to deliberate our grievances and voice our dissent against these offensive actions through both Petition and Assembly, have been maligned and ignored with contempt;

The People of the several States of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming, justly alarmed at these arbitrary and unconstitutional actions, have met as Citizen-Delegates, and sat in a general Congress, in the city of St. Charles, Illinois;

Whereupon we, as these Citizen- Delegates, have gathered in defense of Divine Justice, Liberty and the principles of limited government, now stand in clear recognition of the Supreme Law of the Land – the Constitution for the United States of America;

Therefore, We demand that Government immediately re-establish Constitutional Rule of Law, lest the People be forced to do so themselves; and we hereby serve notice that in the Defense of Freedom and Liberty there shall be
 NO COMPROMISE to which we shall ever yield.

A TRIBUTE TO THE 116 DELEGATES

High a-top the Capitol Building in Washington D.C., She Stands – the Statue of Freedom - a Living Tribute to the Victory, Freedom and Protection of the Divine Rights of FREE Men and the United States of America.

We salute Freedom and pay tribute to the 116 Citizen-Delegates from 48 states, who set aside their lives for eleven days to be part of Continental Congress 2009.

The Articles of Freedom represent the efforts of these individuals, many of whom asked and accepted that their deliberations and inputs were guided and blessed by Divine Providence. The vision for Continental Congress and the framework for the Articles were given by Robert L. Schulz, founder and chairman of We The People Foundation for Constitutional Education.

For them, and for all those who feel the Call to arise and demand that the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights for the United States of America be restored as the Supreme Law of our Land, do we pray for every Blessing and Protection that God can give.

May the Articles of Freedom awaken all to the urgent need of this hour, that The People of America may carry forward the Sacred Trust given by our Founding Fathers, hold the government accountable to the greatest governing documents ever given to mankind and in doing so, save and secure our United States of America as the torch of Liberty for all.
