IAP’s 28th Amendment (draft), by IAP’s 2016 Presidential Candidate Farley Anderson
.The American Declaration of Independence Restoration and Recovery Act (Amendment 28 of the U.S. Constitution)
WHEREAS the United States has a founding document, The Declaration of Independence, and original intent, as iterated in the Federalist Papers puts this document as the prime document and interpretive filter for all law, Constitutional conception, and interpretation; and
WHEREAS The Declaration of Independence lists specific grievances which caused our forefathers to rebel from England; and
WHEREAS These grievances contain certain underlining principles for which England was in violation of, but which America defended through the War of Independence; and
WHEREAS Today the Declaration of Independence has been removed from its proper role and is no longer considered authoritative as part of judicial, executive, or legislative law; and
WHEREAS This neglect has been a major factor in interpreting away the original intent of the Constitution; and
WHEREAS this has contributed to the oath of office losing its meaning by many who take this oath; and
WHEREAS The People of the United States recognize and reverence The Declaration of Independence as the pre-eminent document in the rise of American prosperity, protection, and individual independence; and
WHEREAS the People of the United States have within their power and authority to amend the United States Constitution to rectify abuses and restore this document’s proper role;
NOWTHEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT we as Americans under the banner of national unity, rule of law, equality, and representative government therefore come together to enact the following:
From this time forth the constitutionally-prescribed oath of office shall include the following words after the word Constitution… “and the principles of the Declaration of Independence.”
This amended oath of office shall be reissued to all public servants currently in office as well as for all newly elected and appointed representatives. Those who break this oath shall promptly be removed from office and be subjugated to prosecution for perjury. Furthermore, from this time forth, the principles of the Declaration shall be the foundational interpretive filter for the United States Constitution and all subsequent law. Congress is empowered with the responsibility to review, and cause to be removed from office oath-breaking federal judges.
The principles of the Declaration of Independence to be enacted upon retroactively are as follows:
1. The laws of nature and Nature’s God shall be applied equally to everyone including elected officials.
Thus all law will equally apply to everyone including elected officials, and any proposed legal exemption or exclusive jurisdiction of law is prohibited.
2. States are entitled to their separate and equal station, and likewise the people of these states are entitled to their separate and equal station. This equality includes the equal protection of “natural rights,” and disavows theft on an individual or collective basis.
- The 16th Amendment is repealed
- The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 is repealed
- The Affordable Care Act is Repealed
- All regulatory agencies in which Duties, Imposts and Excises are not geographically uniform throughout the United States, such as welfare and redistribution of wealth programs, will begin a transition of termination, and will be eliminated altogether within 10 years of the ratification of this Amendment.
3. It is self-evident truth that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, which includes freedom of conscience. Thereby government encroachment on the free exercise of religion shall cease.
- Taxation restraint upon political activism of churches shall cease
- Force of law requiring a person or an independent establishment to violate their conscience in providing economic goods and services to other individuals or establishments shall cease
- Atheism as the government prescribed religion shall cease, and it is thus reiterated that the U.S. Constitution only shall be the supreme law of the land
- Let it be recognized that the Bible is an honored part of America’s birth and heritage
4. That the purpose of government is to protect the inalienable rights of all Americans to individual life—defined as human life beginning at fertilization, and ending at natural death—, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
- The precedence established in the 1973 decision of Roe vs. Wade is repealed, and life, liberty, and property shall be protected, and not violated except within the framework of due process of law
- In order to protect the sovereignty of the nation, state, and individual, legal immigration shall be enforced, and the borders of our nation shall be secure
5. A foundational natural law is that government derives its just powers from the consent of the governed, and not through usurpation or fiat authority.
- Executive orders apply only to the executive branch, and not to the general population of American people
- Homeland security and all other federal authority agencies shall enforce only those laws which fall under the proper, constitutional role of the federal government
- States and local governmental jurisdictions have the right to nullify those laws which they interpret as being outside proper authoritative channels
- It is reiterated that spying on American citizens without their consent is a violation of the 4th Amendment, and shall cease
- Proper election procedures allowing only registered voters and honest counting shall be enforced
- The 17th amendment, removing state representation, is contrary to this principle and is repealed
