 A Remonstrance Demanding Officials Keep their Oaths

To the Honorable Governor and Legislature

of the State of Maine

From a Delegation of Peaceful and Free Maine People

A Declaration, Remonstrance and Demand

Opposing, Stopping and Correcting

Ongoing Abuses of the Limited Powers and Authority Delegated to Government by the People of Maine

* * * * *

This Remonstrance and Declaration is based in and on the superseding Authorities of the Constitution for the United States of America, circa 1787, as amended in 1791 with the Bill of Rights and the Constitution for the State of Maine, as amended in 1820. The positions stated herein are founded in these Authorities.

The Governor and all members of the Legislature have sworn or affirmed oaths to these referenced Constitutions and are required to abide by the Constitutional mandates imposed upon them by and through their oaths. No Oath Taker in Maine has the Constitutional authority to oppose, contradict, defy, deny and violate the very documents to which he swore or affirmed his oath. Pursuant to Constitutional guarantees, all Citizens of Maine can expect that their Oath Takers will so act in the performance of their official duties.

Despite these Constitutional requirements, it is evident that all forms of government in Maine abandon their Constitutional duties and routinely perjure, violate and disparage their oaths and the inherent rights and Due Process of Law Constitutionally guaranteed to Maine Citizens. Therefore, the government of Maine and the various governments within Maine act unconstitutionally, thus, are unlawful governments. These errant Oath Takers are Domestic Enemies, and it is the duty of American and Maine Citizens to expose and oppose all Domestic Enemies.

This Remonstrance is provided to the Governor and the Legislature by the People of Maine to apprise them that the People are aware of the unconstitutional actions and it is our demand, pursuant to rights guaranteed in both Constitutions that government immediately cease and desist its unconstitutional actions, immediately embrace and enforce the Constitution as the Supreme Law of the Land. We the People, rightfully demand that those who serve in the government of Maine, under the sacred trust endowed upon them by the People, restore honor and Constitutional governance to Maine and strictly abide by the Supreme Law of the Land and the principles and mandates contained within our founding documents.

The above-stated rightful demands have arisen and are presented due to the positions and circumstances stated herein below:

To the Honorable Governor & Legislature of the State of Maine

A Declaration and Remonstrance Opposing the Abuse of Granted Powers and Inherent Rights

We, a delegation of peaceful, God loving, and free People domiciled on the State of Maine, having met and deliberated many hours regarding the repeated usurpation and abuse of powers granted, and rights protected by the Constitutions for the United States of America and for the State of Maine, conclude that it is our right and duty, relying upon God’s goodness and guidance, to herewith remonstrate against our Maine government, declaring our reasons for such remonstrance by providing the following determinations:

1. Because the Constitution for the United States of America, Article I, Section 1, concretely states that “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States,….”, and these enumerated powers were specific and limited for the purpose of severely restraining the very government thus created by that Constitution.
2. Because there has been imposed for nearly a century, a constantly depreciating, constitutionally unauthorized, unlawful fiat money issued through a privately owned and controlled central bank, and forced upon the People because of deceitful and unconscionable acts imposed upon the People, by and through fraud, in violation of Constitutional requirements, said money causing continual degradation of our purchasing power, instability in our free market economy, and a deterioration of the People’s lifestyle.
3. Because the government of our State of Maine has, for numerous purposes, e. g. highway, school, and welfare program funding, agreed to accept and utilize from the United States government its departments, agencies, and bureaus, this unlawful fiat money, and its attached mandates in lieu of the lawful money described and authorized in Article I, Section 8, and further implied as gold and silver coin by Article I, Section 10 of the Constitution for the United States of America.
4. Because the Constitution for the State of Maine states in Article VIII, Part First, Section 1, that “…the Legislature are authorized, and it shall be their duty to require, the several towns to make suitable provision, at their own expense, for the support and maintenance of public schools;….”, supposedly with lawful gold and silver backed money; yet the government for the State of Maine is accepting the above mentioned unlawful fiat money to subsidize the education of our children in Maine public schools.
5. Because government officials and employees for the State of Maine are therefore violating Article VIII, Part First, Section 1 of the Constitution for the State of Maine and their Oath of Office, and thereby violating the Public Trust and alienating the People’s trust in their government.
6. Because the State of Maine’s elected members of the Legislature deny and refuse to declare and assert their just powers which are reserved to the States or to the People as affirmed in the 10th Amendment to the Constitution for the United States of America.
7. Because the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution for the United States of America have been unlawfully usurped and repeatedly violated regarding the People’s inherent right to acquire, possess, and protect property, as stated succinctly in the Constitution for the State of Maine, Article I, Section 1., and State of Maine officials and employees have repeatedly failed to negate or nullify the usurpation, abuses, and violations, or otherwise protect its People from them. The above mentioned include, but are not limited to, the usurpation of private property rights by United States governmental departments, (e. g., Interior, Education, Transportation, Environmental Protection, Homeland Security, Agriculture, etc.); bureaus, (e. g., BATF; commissions, (i. e., LURC); and other agencies too numerous to mention, plus the surrender of said rights, and even our sovereignty, to foreign entities by our governments through so-called Treaties (e. g., GATT, NAFTA, CAFTA, etc.), Councils, (i. e., the President’s Council on Sustainable Development, Human Rights Council), Conventions, (e. g., Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities), Charters, (e. g., the UN) and its affiliates, (e. g., ICLEI, UNESCO, UNICEF, NATO).
8. Because there are numerous unconstitutional laws, rules, and regulations being imposed upon the People of Maine by its government departments, bureaus, agencies, or by NGO’s created by them that obfuscate and/or impair the People’s right to contract. Examples of such impairment include, but are not limited to the following: MSHA mandates, Statutes restricting landlord/tenant and/or insurance contracts, zoning regulations, International codes, and wage and price controls.
9. Because the Maine Legislature unlawfully enacted laws that create victimless crimes, to unlawfully control social activities, invade private property, and increase revenues for the State of Maine through the courts and law enforcement.
10. Because our governments were created to preserve and protect natural, inherent and unalienable rights, but through surrender to the above entities of ownership, control, and/or use of the People’s property, the elected officials, agents, and employees of the governments for the United States and State of Maine have violated their Oaths of Office, and are thus subject to reprimand, arrest, fines, and/or other corrective action, such as that authorized in the self-executing Sections 3 and 4 of the 14th Amendment to the national Constitution to provide remedy and restitution for their wrongs against the People of the State of Maine.

Therefore, We the subscribers to this Remonstrance, state, that no peaceful, lawful actions authorized by the Constitutions are exempt from our use to fully restore our rightful Government that is obligated to protect and preserve the above described rights and others retained by the People. We state that, providing there are no corrective actions timely taken in regards to this Remonstrance, and the rightful demands made herein, the People of the State of Maine have the Constitutional authority, duty, and “…an unalienable and indefeasible right to institute government, and to alter, reform, or totally change the same, when their safety and happiness require it.” (Maine Constitution, Article I, Section 2). Also, we state that we will do all in our power to urge the People of Maine to resort to such lawful, peaceful yet strong actions as are required to provide said People with a return to the “republican form of government” as guaranteed in the Constitution for the United States of America, Article IV, Section 4, so help us GOD!

Biblical Law at “Common Law” supersedes all laws, and “Christianity is custom, custom is Law.” Robin v. Hardaway, 2 Va. (2 Jefferson) 109, 114 (1772)

“All acts of legislature apparently contrary to natural right and justice are, in our laws, and must be in the nature of things, considered as void. The laws of nature are the laws of God; Whose authority can be superseded by no power on earth. A legislature must not obstruct our obedience to him from whose punishments they cannot protect us. All human constitutions which contradict his laws, we are in conscience bound to disobey. Such have been the adjudications of our courts of Justice.” Robin v. Hardaway, 2 Va. (2 Jefferson) 109, 114 (1772)

In Question 94 of the Prima secundae of his Summa theologiae (I.ii), Aquinas asserted the concept of an eternal law which provides the road map for all ethics and ethical conduct. This eternal law, Aquinas reasoned, is God’s device to govern the entire community of the universe toward the common good. The divine law, as represented for example in the Ten Commandments, makes eternal law more concrete and knowable. Natural law then transforms the laws emanating from the realm of the supernatural, making them knowable “in the hearts of human beings” and instruct them “to do good and avoid evil.” Lastly, human law—which translates natural law into concrete norms governing particular peoples and nations—is the most concrete and specific application of eternal law in the realm of the nature. Robin v. Hardaway, 2 Va. (2 Jefferson) 109, 114 (1772)

“We are bound to interpret the Constitution in the light of the law as it existed at the time it was adopted, not as reaching out for new guaranties of the rights of the citizen, but as securing to every individual such as he already possessed as a British subject–such as his ancestors had inherited and defended since the days of Magna Charta.” Mattox v. U.S., 156 US 237,243. (1895)

“The Constitution is a written instrument. As such, its meaning does not alter. That which it meant when it was adopted, it means now.” S. Carolina v. U.S., 199 U.S. 437, 448 (1905).

“That which is implied is as much a part of the Constitution as that which is expressed, and amongst the implied matters is that the nation may not prevent a state from discharging the ordinary functions of government, and no state can interfere with the national government in the free exercise of the powers conferred upon it.“ S. Carolina v. U.S., 199 U.S. 437, 448 (1905).

“The Constitution of these United States is the supreme law of the land. Any law that is repugnant to the Constitution is null and void of law.” Marbury v. Madison, 5 US 137,(1803)

“No state shall convert a liberty into a privilege, license it, and attach a fee to it.” Murdock v. Penn., 319 US 105, (1943)

“If the state converts a liberty into a privilege, the citizen can engage in the right with impunity.” Shuttlesworth v. Birmingham, 373 US 262, (1969)

“Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation, which would abrogate them.” Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, (1966)

“An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.” Norton v. Shelby County, 118 U.S. 425, (1886)

“The claim and exercise of a Constitutional right cannot be converted into a crime.” Miller v. U.S., 230 F.2d. 486,489

    This Remonstrance is a “Request” and “Notice” to those who serve us in Augusta. It is merely a notice, and provided it is ignored, purposely, ignorantly, or otherwise, other peaceful procedures are being prepared for procuring and preserving our CONSTITUTIONAL government(s).

    To all Maine People and friends:

    At 03;40 pm, Saturday the 12th of January, the last signature was signed to this Remonstrance at my home. What we have created, should go down into history. Instead of every group or organization that has been ignored by the Government and courts of Maine for their unconstitutional actions, will now have a vehicle to join and force the elected officials and anyone that swears an oath to serve the Constitution and the people of Maine, to cease and desist such actions. The Remonstrance will engage a Constitutional vehicle that will force all future bills to be compatible with the U.S. and Maine Constitutions. All laws that have been unlawfully placed into law will have to, over time, be examined for it’s Constitutionality or its ability to be amended to fulfill its recognition of being Constitutional, or be abolished in its entirety.

    Our legislators, appointees and state workers, that have taken the oath to serve and protect the Maine people and their Constitution, from an established date, who willfully violate their Oath; their willful actions can be viewed treasonous and Domestic Terrorism.

    This is not a partisan issue, this is a vehicle to return the State of Maine back its origin as a republic and not a socialistic government that serves an agenda of the United Nations or any other country or ideology that removes or hinders our freedom and liberty.

    Many people have no affiliation to any group or organization, but are American and Maine people and believe in the Maine and U.S. Constitutions may join us a individuals because that is what all of us are; independent and free.

    This Remonstrance will be served in the very near future. If you are interested, please call me or any of the other signators following the Remonstrance. This is our one and only last chance for freedom in our state.

    Please click on the finished Remonstrance (Read the Document) and listen to the radio show (AROOSTOOK WATCHMAN) below.

    The Remonstrance document was served today, January 14, 2013, on the Governor of Maine, Paul R. LePage, the President of the Maine Senate, Justin Alfond, and the Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives. Signed receipts acknowledging delivery of the Remonstrance to above mentioned were obtained.
    Copies were provided to the following, as well: Senate Majority Leader, Seth Goodall, Senate Assistant Majority Leader, Troy D. Jackson, Senate Minority Leader, Michael Thibodeau, Senate Assistant Minority Leader, Roger Katz; House Majority Leader, Seth A. Berry, House Assistant Majority Leader, Jeff M. McCabe, House Minority Leader, Kenneth W. Fredette, House Assistant Minority Leader, Alexander R. Willette.
    These officials were provided copies of the Remonstrance only, no receipt was requested or obtained from them. (I do have a check list marked that I have delivered the documents to all of the above.)

  5. Wayne says:

    The receipts that were signed and the originals which are in my possession, demanded a reply within 10 business days. We will soon know whether they intend to continue business as usual, or correct their actions. Boy Scout motto: Be Prepared!

  6. Wayne says:

    The group of signatories to the Remonstrance, plus an expert on the issue that will be discussed, will be meeting with the Governor again tomorrow, Feb 16, 2013, and I give Governor LePage considerable credit (and a Thank You!) for listening to our concerns – after finally learning of the Remonstrance due to issues that have been addressed. The offices of the Senate President, and the House Speaker have still failed to respond, so the follow-up materials are being prepared to address this fraudulent neglect of a lawful demand to respond to the People’s grievances.
