PRELIMINARY STATEMENT OF THE CASE
The federal government is committing wrongful,
unconstitutional acts resulting in injuries, loss and damage to millions
of American citizens.
In spite of Constitutional prohibitions, the Executive branch is taxing
the labor of the working men and women of America, forcing companies to
withhold that direct tax from the wages and earnings of their workers,
and Congress has acquiesced.
In spite of Constitutional prohibitions, the Executive branch has
applied the armed forces in hostilities in Iraq without a Congressional
declaration of war, taxing the labor of the People to pay for the
mischief, and the Congress has acquiesced.
In spite of Constitutional prohibitions, the Executive branch is
printing paper money without regard to any stockpile of gold or silver,
then selling that paper money to a cartel of private banks for the cost
of the ink and paper, then borrowing back that paper money from that
cartel with principal equal to the face amount printed on the paper
money and at an interest rate determined by the cartel, then taxing the

In spite of Constitutional guarantees, the Executive is harassing and
penalizing those citizens whose Petitions for Redress have gone
unanswered and who now are acting to stop the withholding and payment of
the illegal direct tax on labor, and tribunals inferior to the Supreme
Court are cooperating in this abuse of government power.
The Constitution is hanging by a thread - the First Amendment Right to
Petition, which includes the Right of Redress "BEFORE TAXES", is the
only non-violent means by which the American people can directly
confront unlawful government conduct. This Right to Petition is
essential to the protection and preservation of individual liberty and
equal justice under the law. The American People are being
systematically denied this unalienable Right by the Executive,
Legislative and Judicial branches of the federal government.
We The People have Petitioned the Executive and the Legislative
branches. We now Petition to test the attitude of the Judiciary. We seek
a declaration of our Rights and injunctive relief.
