It looks like the good folks over the Liberty Counsel have finally had enough and are literally declaring their independence with their new “Declaration of Independence 2011” petition that they want you to sign.
Declaring that “in America, we do not suffer tyrants!,” Liberty Counsel is asking people to pledge their lives to resist the “abusive and lawless regime in the Executive Branch and in the United States Congress”:
We The People, therefore, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world, solemnly declare our full intention, by any lawful means available, to remove from office all those politicians and office holders who have been complicit in…
the trampling of our liberties,
the undermining of our religious freedoms,
the overt and intentional subversion of our Constitution,
overstepping the boundaries of their law-based authority,
the advancement and promotion of a socialist agenda,
the massive expansion of a federal government through agencies and czars whose goal is to “fundamentally transform America!”
We break the bonds between us and them.
We declare, by the Rights afforded us by our Creator, that we are Duty bound to expose and resist all unlawful decrees and policies, such as the extensive list presented above, as have been or may yet be issued by the present abusive and lawless regime in the Executive Branch and in the United States Congress.
And for the 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.
