Mark "Snooper" Harvey in Contract With America, Live Free or Die, The New Declaration of Independence

“A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.” —Samuel Adams´╗┐

The New Declaration of Independence - 2010

Do We Have A Legitimate Federal Government? - my answer is no taking into consideration the last 70 years of an unconstitutional federal government.

Think about the question in the title of this post while reading the “blurb” below. Following, is the first two paragraphs of our Declaration of Independence. I have taken the “liberty” to revise it slightly and those changes and/or additions will be in bold face.  That which follows will be my “suggestion” for the next Declaration of Independence:

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

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; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these United States; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present unconstitutional United States Congress, Judiciary and now the Presidency is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these United States. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

And now, the rest of the story:

It hath unconstitutionally attacked, and bemoaned Private Enterprise and has threatened to Socialize or Nationalize private corporations and hath forced the Individual States to comply under duress;

It hath Amended the United States Constitution via Federal Statute and Judicial Opinion unconstitutionally - there is a lawful and constitutional manner in which to Amend the United States Constitution and Federal Statute and Judicial Decree is not constitutional - and hath forced the Individual States to comply under duress;

It hath adopted forms of action contrary to the United States Constitution in the areas of Governance and Freedom - an eerie blend of Italian and Nazi Nationalized Socialism (Fascism) as well as the socialist and communistic tenets of Karl Marx, Pol Pot, Chairman Mao, Saul Alinsky, William Ayers the CPUSA type of organizations and hath forced the Individual States to comply under duress;

This is a work in progress.  Feel free to add violations in the comments section.

From Bigfoot:

It hath produced judicial Opinions that would interpret the laws of the United States according to the laws of foreign Countries, or according to “evolving standards of decency”, without any attempt to define said standards, both of which are not provided for within in the Constitution of the said United States.

It hath appropriated Funds, at the Expense of Taxpayers, to organizations such as La Raza and ACORN, wherein such appropriations not provided for within in the Constitution of the said United States.

Keep ‘em coming folks!
