1. We reaffirm the principles within our nation’s foundational documents that are self-evident and state that all people are born equal, that they are deserving of certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
— That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among the people, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
— That whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the responsibility 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.
2. We support the Indiana State Constitution, the Constitution of the United States of America, and The Declaration of Independence as written.
3. We support the sovereignty of the State of Indiana and support a limited Federal government, as set forth in the tenth Amendment, which states, “the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
4. We reaffirm the sovereignty of the United States, and reject any move toward global governance that surrenders our autonomy to powers outside of these United and Sovereign States. Furthermore, we condemn any and all acts by elected officials that abrogate their oaths to protect and preserve our Constitution as written and believe such acts to be treasonous assaults against the very government they have sworn to uphold. We further believe that such crimes against the Constitution warrant a review before an ethics committee, which if found guilty of these crimes, can result in possible recall of their office and/or criminal charges. We support the addition of a perjury clause in every oath of elective office in the nation and in the state.
5. We hold that the writings of the founding fathers and the sources referenced by them are the only true foundational basis for the interpretation of the Constitution of the United States of America, and furthermore, that these writings are the only precedents that should be considered in judicial matters regarding “constitutionality.”
6. We hold that excessive taxation by government is a violation of our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. We further hold that our current tax system is unconstitutional and should be repealed, and we vehemently object to our tax dollars being spent on items other than what is enumerated within our Constitution or wasted on personal schemes of those elected as representatives of all of us. All government should operate on a balanced budget and return all surplus money back to the taxpayers at the end of each fiscal year.
7. We reject all forms of Marxism, Fascism, and Socialism. We support Capitalism and its free market as being the only financial system viable under our Constitution.
8. We reject all forms of tyranny by those who were empowered by the people to serve the people. We approve of term limits not to exceed eight years in the same elected office. Holding political office should be seen as a job, not as a career. Once the job is done, the job holder should move on to other pursuits. If the job is not done satisfactorally within the term limit, the job holder should step down and let someone else work at it. If the job holder proves to be incompetent or criminally negligent or commits an actual crime while in office, the job holder should be fired (impeached).
9. We reject the violation of the separation of powers set forth in the Constitution of the United States of America where the judicial branch acts in a manner designated to the legislative branch.
10. We hold that those who are elected to any position of government or who are employed by the government are servants of the people rather than the people being servants of those in positions of power.
11. We hold that it is our legal right and duty as citizens of the State of Indiana and the United States of America to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
12. We claim the legal right to remove our consent to be governed by any individuals who violate the principles set forth in the Indiana State Constitution or the Constitution of the United States of America, and that those who violate any of those principles are to be removed from their position by whatever legal means available.
13. We do not endorse any specific political party or candidate. We reject racism and sexism in any form. We accept all those of like mind and we expect each individual to be an informed citizen and to act upon his or her convictions guided by a sense of personal responsibility for their environment and their governments.
