In Defense of the Bill of Rights and Our Constitutional Rights Resolution
by the Constitution Party National Committee – Spring 2003 – Portland, Oregon
Whereas, we hold these Truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness— That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed.
Whereas, we the people in order to secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity do take our responsibilities towards securing and maintaining liberty literally.
Whereas, brave men, living and dead, have struggled and consecrated with their lives this gift of liberty as vouched safe by the Constitution.
Whereas, it is for us, the living, to be dedicated to the unfinished work, to the great task remaining before us.
Whereas, we here highly resolved that our honored dead shall not have died in vain, but that this nation under God, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
Whereas, the US PATRIOT Act, the Homeland Security Act and certain Executive Orders seriously jeopardize and threaten our unalienable, God-given Constitutionally protected rights.
Therefore, We the National Committee of the Constitution Party support the repeal of the US PATRIOT Act, Homeland Security Act and Executive Orders which infringe on our Constitutional rights and encourage all to work for their repeal.
And therefore we do support this Resolution in defense of Liberty, with a firm Reliance in the Protection and intervention of divine Providence, and pledge to each other our mutual support.
