DEFEND YOUR CIVIL LIBERTIES

SIGN THE PETITION

WHEREAS we recognize the seriousness of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the need to take strong personal actions to combat its contagion and also the need for local communities to provide for adequate medical care for those who are infected,

WHEREAS Governors, mayors and county sheriffs across the nation are declaring states of emergency under the guise of protecting the public from the coronavirus,

WHEREAS these emergencies have been declared without respect to Civil Liberties contained in the First, Second and Fourth Amendments,

WHEREAS the right to peaceable assembly has been nullified by limiting to very small groups and in some cases declaring that violators will be fined and/or incarcerated,

WHEREAS churches are being forced to abandon physical assemblies in favor of online broadcasting that is not available to a vast number of smaller churches in America,

WHEREAS businesses are being forced out of business because of mandated closure for indefinite periods of time,

WHEREAS the Second Amendment is being violated when government executives, using unchecked power granted them to combat the spread of the Coronavirus, use that power to deny citizens their right to purchase arms and/or ammunition, 

WHEREAS the Fourth Amendment is being violated when citizens are not secure "in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures [that] shall not be violated",

WHEREAS all of these actions are preventing citizens from exercising their Unalienable Rights as guaranteed in the Declaration of Independence, including the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, 

WHEREAS all elected leaders take an oath of office to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States",

OUR DEMAND

    I understand extreme measures may need to be taken at times in emergency situations, but that does NOT nullify or negate the liberties granted to us in our Constitution, and all extreme measures MUST be revoked as soon as said emergency allows. Anything else is a blatant violation of our Constitution and all politicians who refuse to restore our rights must be severely punished as well as removed from office.

    I am understanding of protecting the general population but not at the expense of our Constitution. Temporary means you provide a plan and date when that plan will be executed to test everyone symptomatic or all the population.

    First there is God, then there is the Constitution. These are inalienable rights that no man has the right to deny anyone, anywhere.
