Petition to Abolish the Government of the USA

[cross-posted at Liberty & Power]

The petition I posted in draft form a couple of weeks ago is now available for signing. Here’s the text:

To: All those currently exercising positions of responsibility in the Government of the United States of America, whether elected or appointed, and whether at the federal, state, or local level

Smash the State Whereas the United States Government’s claim to legitimacy is purportedly based on such principles as the consent of the governed, human equality, and the inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; and

Whereas few if any of those over whom you claim authority have ever consented to such governance; and

Whereas governments, as claimants to such authority over others, are by their nature inconsistent with human equality; and

Whereas your laws, ordinances, decrees, and policies generally stand in violation, directly or indirectly, of the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness;

We, the undersigned, hereby demand:

That you cease to claim to be acting in our name or as our agents; and

That you cease all attempts to exercise authority over your fellow human beings, on this continent or elsewhere; and

That you work to dismantle the institution or set of institutions known as the Government of the United States of America, in every branch and at every level, as speedily as possible; and

That you make no attempt to interfere with its replacement by voluntary associations of free and equal individuals.

    From the comments of some of the signatories, it appears several want a “do over” like a reprise of the Articles of Confederation, the “sacred Constitution”, or even “God’s commandments only” and yet other supposed anarchists want to “vote Ron Paul!” (presumably one of the wise (older) citizens that should be “allowed” to lead). Either they didn’t read the petition or they didn’t understand “dismantling the institutions” and “replacing them with voluntary associations.”

    as a wise old sage over 2,000 years ago said: since the earth herself supplies all resources freely for protection from storm & tempest, there is but little a government can do! and he also said: once humanity was organized to perfection[it was a communion], then government learnt to meddle in peoples affairs. who said these things? lao tzu!

    I just signed your petition! Well done. So how many signatures do you need before I stop paying taxes and start living like a free man?
