Here is the Preface:
______________________________________________

Across many administrations and years, by each branch of government, through each major political party, the Constitution for The United States has been violated. The People have formally Petitioned the Government for Redress of the violations in the most humble of terms. The People and their Petitions have been ignored. Each un-remedied violation has taken its toll with dire impact on our economic interests, our people, our quality and way of life and our international and national reputations.

We hold this Truth to be Self- Evident:

Any action, by any branch of the Government, that is repugnant to the Constitution is null and void.

On November 11, 2009, and for eleven days continuing morning, noon and night, Citizens of America gathered in St. Charles, Illinois, as Delegates from each of forty eight States, to discuss these violations, and Government’s refusal to be held accountable, and to recommend a course of action to restore Constitutional Obedience in a Constitutional Republic now challenged to Its core. These were not professional legislators, wordsmiths or attorneys. These were ordinary, non-aligned citizens from across America and all walks of life. They set aside their lives for this Assembly. They represent You and Me, the Free People of America.



The conclusion of their efforts is This Document called ‘‘Articles of Freedom.’’

It is proposed that these Articles be distributed to All in the Land with the intent to draw the attention and courage of a “goodly number of millions of People” who, entitled to their Freedom and essential to Its maintenance, Arise to Restore the Constitution for the United States of America.

Then and only then shall America’s Destiny be Fulfilled.

[End of Preface]

Really good way to start out.

No more left - right paradigm!! We're beyond that now - I hope.

Here is the Declaration and Resolves (which is followed by the 15 Articles):
_______________________________________________

Declaration and Resolves of Continental Congress 2009


In Defense of a Free People, the time has come to reassert our God-Given, Natural Rights and cast off tyranny…

Let the Facts Reveal: The federal government of the United States of America was instituted to secure the Individual Rights of our citizens and instead now threatens our Life, Liberty and Property through usurpations of the Constitution. Emboldened by our own lack of responsibility and due diligence in these matters, government has exceeded its mandate and abandoned those Founding Principles which have made our nation exceptional;

Our servant government has undertaken these unconstitutional actions in direct violation of their enumerated duties, 
to the detriment of the People’s liberty and the sovereignty of our Republic;

Over many years and spanning multiple political administrations, the People who have, in good conscience, attempted to deliberate our grievances and voice our dissent against these offensive actions through both Petition and Assembly, have been maligned and ignored with contempt;

The People of the several States of Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming, justly alarmed at these arbitrary and unconstitutional actions, have met as Citizen-Delegates, and sat in a general Congress, in the city of St. Charles, Illinois;

Whereupon we, as these Citizen-Delegates, have gathered in defense of Divine Justice, Liberty and the principles of limited government, now stand in clear recognition of the Supreme Law of the Land – the Constitution for the United States of America;

Therefore, We demand that Government immediately re-establish Constitutional Rule of Law, lest the People be forced to do so themselves; and we hereby serve notice that in the Defense of Freedom and Liberty there shall be
 NO COMPROMISE to which we shall ever yield.

[End of Declaration and Resolves]

I see there is a new website for the "Articles of Freedom." Here is the link to the full document: http://www.articlesoffreedom.us/ArticlesofFreedom.aspx.


From http://www.articlesoffreedom.us/ThePlan.aspx:

The profound plan to save the Constitution

On April 19, 2010, the Voice of Freedom will be heard across America as we gather in every state to take back our Constitution.

A Plan for those who are uneasy and anxious about the fate of America.
This is not the Hour for Summer Soldiers or Sunshine Patriots.

The action required of all Patriots is three-fold:

1) READ the Articles of Freedom and see how we can end the violations and restore Constitutional governance;

2) SIGN the Pledge, to hold elected officials accountable to the Constitution and to engage in civic action if millions of other People also take the Pledge, and

3) BE at your state capitol on Patriot's Day - April 19, 2010 to join with millions of others who, simultaneously in every state, will serve the Articles of Freedom on elected officials.
