"If, then, control of the people over the organs of their government be the measure of their republicanism, and I confess I know no other measure, it must be agreed that our governments have much less of republicanism than ought to have been expected; in other words, that the people have less regular control over their agents, than their rights and their interests require."
Thomas Jefferson in a letter to John Taylor dated May 28, 1816.
Free Democracy Affidavit Template
I, ___, certify under PENALTY OF PERJURY under the laws of the State of ______ that the foregoing paragraphs are true and correct.
To restrain the corruption that has possessed the United States government and to secure the blessings of liberty to the People of the United States, I am fully committed to the ratification of the ten amendments of the FreeDA Liberty Bill and I fully acknowledge that in order for the People to be free, politicians must be legally bound to serving the specific interests of the People rather than the general interests of the corporations. As such,
I support that barring violation to the rights of others, the right of a free people to be secure in their individual decisions of personal safety, ingestion, expression, activity, association, and property, shall not be violated without due process of law.
I support that the freedom from direct taxation being necessary for the right of a free people to be sovereign in the ownership of their labor and of their property, the imposition of direct taxation shall be prohibited at all levels of government allowing for only indirect taxation with tax deductions for non-patrons of social welfare services.
I support that neither slavery nor involuntary servitude shall exist within the United States or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
I support that barring conviction for either treason or for voting fraud, the right of all mentally coherent adult citizens to vote at all levels of government shall be guaranteed, the violation of which shall be punishable with equivalence to an act of treason.
I support that the right of a politically free and democratic people to engage in Initiative, Referendum, and Recall, to have all of their votes counted, and to be without the undemocratic imposition of an electoral college, shall be guaranteed at all levels of government.
