Citizens for Liberty has adopted the original values of the Sons of Liberty as displayed on one of their flags.
We stand for:
"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
- Benjamin Franklin
Washington Citizens for Liberty is a Washington State Nonprofit Corporation, applied for IRS 501(c)(3) tax exempt status in August 2021, and is awaiting approval. EIN is available upon request.
Our mission is simple. Support our fellow citizens, neighbors and friends when tyranny of any kind threatens their safety, security, freedom, liberty and general well being. Our methods include legal, lawful and peaceful civil action.
We are a peaceful and civil grass roots organization and welcome all people regardless of age, race, religion, or any other “category or class” the government places us in order to divide us.
We fervently support our founding principles and Constitutional Rights that includes Civil Discourse and Petitioning of the Government when that government which the people elected does harm, jeopardizes our freedom, or does not govern by Consent of the People.
We believe, debating matters of public concern is essential in a free, self-governing society. If citizens were not free to decide after listening to opposing views self-government would be distorted. At the core of the Declaration of Independence is the principle that government exists to protect individual rights for us, not that we exist to serve the government. Therefore the people are the master and the government is the servant. If the government can dictate what we can and cannot discuss, then it would imply that the servant can tell the master what to do. Congress can make no law “abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Those rights are often considered in isolation and as distinct guarantees. But they really build upon one another and reinforce the fact that the people are sovereign and possess the right by nature to control the government. One of many problems we face now is Congress or more specifically the Legislative branches of Federal, State and Local governments abdicate, overtly or covertly, their authority to make law to the Executive Branch by order, proclamation or decree which was not the intent of our Founding Fathers.
Washington Citizens for Liberty aims to restore our Constitutional form of government as originally intended to include separation of powers and checks and balances designed to protect our freedom and ensure government transparency and accountability.
