A Declaration of Intention
by the Supporters of Ron Paul

“Truth is treason in the empire of lies…

There is an alternative to national bankruptcy, a bigger police state, trillion-dollar wars, and a government that draws ever more parasitically on the productive energies of the American people. It’s called freedom…

If we want to live in a free society, we need to break free from the artificial limitations on free debate and start asking serious questions once again. I am happy that my campaign for the presidency has finally raised some of them. But this is a long-term project that will persist far into the future. These ideas cannot be allowed to die, buried beneath the mind-numbing chorus of empty slogans and inanities that constitute official political discourse in America.”

From The Revolution: A Manifesto by Ron Paul

Through many long, dark years in America, some few great patriots kept the lamplight of Liberty, shepherding its flame from those who would extinguish it entirely. On March 11, 2007, Congressman Ron Paul illuminated the darkness, thrusting that lamp aloft for the weary eyes of the nation to see. He declared his candidacy for President of the United States.

The resulting political phenomenon, now known as the “Ron Paul Revolution”, represents a turning point in American history. Dr. Ron Paul and the American patriots inspired by his message of Freedom have, in the process of the grassroots campaign for the Republican nomination for President, fundamentally changed American politics forever.

It has been conclusively proven that American citizens can organize themselves to take effective action in support of a core set of principles. In the face of determined opposition by the Establishment, we have met with unprecedented success. We have raised tens of millions of dollars. We have created hundreds of millions of dollars worth of publicity. We have assembled an army of 100,000 volunteers. We have reached millions of Americans with the Ron Paul message and they have been motivated in large numbers to support our candidate with their votes. We have shown decided capacity of action and clear determination of will that government of, by and for the People shall not perish.

In consideration:

Of the perilous economic condition of the nation,
Of the disastrous condition of the fiat monetary unit,
Of the Establishment’s ruinous commitment to unending and ill-considered War and foreign adventure,
Of the State’s unquenchable thirst for Tyrannical Powers in violation of the letter and spirit of the Constitution of the Republic,
Of the destitution of National Sovereignty rendered upon the country by treasonous agreements with Foreign and Transnational Powers,
Of the abrogation by the Federal Government of its duty to the protection and security of the national territory,
And of many other associated abuses and usurpations too numerous to be Declared herein;

We, the undersigned, having given proper and due consideration to the current situation of our country, do declare that it is our clear and determined Intention to continue the fight for Freedom and the restoration of our Constitutional Republic under any current or future circumstances. Our cause is not limited to or constrained by any electoral contest or result thereof. It is not limited by political party affiliation or anti-Constitutional regulations. It is not bound to any master or slave to any prerequisite other than the sacred principle of Freedom and the Constitution of the United States of America. Like Ron Paul, we take our inspiration and advice from the Founding Fathers of the Republic. Like the Founding Fathers, we swear that in support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

First they ignored us. Then they laughed at us. Now they fight us. Soon we shall win.
