[We respectfully share the Tennessee Republic Plan in the hope of effecting productive discussion with Confederate State Citizens for comments, suggestions, constructive criticism, etc. We seek discussion making this strategy open and useful in promoting our Confederate Cause and Full Restoration as expeditiously as possible, while always making ongoing improvement].
TENNESSEE REPUBLIC PLAN
(1). A State Citizen is officially certified by the Confederate States of America interim Central Government.
(2). Certified State Citizens who participate as an official party to interim State Government agree to assemble or network for purpose of voter registration, interim elections & other matters & business of their interim State Republic Government.
(3). DOCUMENTATION IN SUPPORT: Inclusive of CSA government Citizen Certificates & State Voter Registration Certificates; many various self-authorized & authenticated forms of ID; as well as, established authority recognizing legitimacy of Confederate activity. These provide authority, credibility & are helpful dealing with contingencies & deterring trespass that is often committed under color of defacto law. Three different types of documentation are useful for serving Notice, Warning or Demand:
(a). CONFEDERATE GOVERNMENT DOCUMENTATION includes State Citizen Certificates & State Voter Registration Certificates;
(b). SELF-AUTHORIZED & AUTHENTICATED DOCUMENTATION must be done with the Citizens own grassroots initiative. This optional documentation can declare status & attest to: Citizenship, Choice of form of Government, Identification Disclosure; Lawful Presence; Spiritual Conviction, Domicile, Protections, Rights, Freedoms, Non-Fiction status, Exemption from Foreign Jurisdiction, etc;
(c). ESTABLISHED CITATION FROM DOMESTIC & INTERNATIONAL PRIVATE & PUBLIC LAW & TREATY, CONSTITUTION, LAW OF THE LAND, CASE LAW, LAW OF NATIONS, RULES OF WAR, GENEVA CONVENTION, LIEBER CODE, HAGUE CONVENTION, COMMERCIAL LAW, ETC. It shall be made abundantly clear we are not oriented to Internationalism, Globalism or New World Order. Citation of established international private & public law with demand for enforcement of international treaty, does not per se invoke Internationalism, Globalism or New World Order. Communication with the world exposes authority of established public record recognizing legitimacy for America’s Republic full Restoration & peaceful political separation from Democracy. It has become necessary to EXPOSE & PUBLISH this international consensus especially addressing:
> What Democracy has obligated itself to comply with, be responsible for & must govern itself accordingly. Democracy entities are subject to & obligated to comply with International Law & Treaty they are party to. Democracy Executive, Legislative & Judicial are required to accept communications of International Law & Treaty obligations & violations. International Law & Treaty provisions typically extend to all political
subdivisions. Service of Notice, Warning or Demand may address internationally recognized Freedoms, Rights, Protections, Asylum, Exemption from Foreign Jurisdiction & Venue, established Confederate Sovereign Territory, etc.
> What laws are applicable & must be obeyed by Confederate State Citizens while subjected to imposed & apparently never ending Foreign Law, Martial Rule, Occupation & Reconstruction;
> That certain Democracy administrative, judicial, legislative & executive process; & interference with CSA internal affairs, are wrongful trespass & damage recognized as internationally prohibited activity committed under color of defacto law & policy resembling Social, Political & Economic Genocide, War Crimes & Ethnic Cleansing. Breaches of International Law & Treaty include: disrespect of indigenous people; wrongful
activity of an occupying Military Government, Rules of War, Martial Law & Occupation; recognized Commercial Law; Laws of Nations & domestic Law of the Land & Rule of Law.
> That Confederate State Citizens possess unalienable Inherent Political Power & Freedom of Political Will
which may invoked by Declaration, Right & Inheritance;
> Enhanced domestic & international recognition of legitimacy for America’s Confederated Republican form of government political option offering peaceful Restoration & Political Separation in a distinctly separate jurisdiction & venue apart from Democracy.
(4). Confederate Americans will not be deterred because their restored government is initially a small assembly. IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW MANY HAVE EXERCISED THIS UNALIENABLE, INHERENT RIGHT AT ANY GIVEN TIME BECAUSE NO MATTER WHAT THE HEAD COUNT. COLLECTIVELY THEY CONSTITUTE THE BODY POLITIC AS CONSTITUENT PARTIES OF THE STATE REPUBLIC GOVERNMENT. Unalienable inherent political power & freedom of political will is being invoked by Declaration, Right & Inheritance as INTERIM CONFEDERATED STATE REPUBLICAN GOVERNMENT RESTORATION BECOMES A CERTIFIABLY DOCUMENTED ACCOMPLISHED FACT. Interim State Government Restoration cannot be delayed any longer while waiting to obtain a certain quota or percentage of the citizenry of the defacto state [1% for Tennessee would be over 63,000]. Confederate State Citizens already constitute 100% of the dejure State Republic [a precedent set by the Continental Congress carried forward by today's Confederate States of America interim central Government]. Whatever offices are collectively agreed upon are interim offices until a more formal State Republic Government is fully restored. It is extremely important that checks & balances are continually in place to guard security & integrity through all stages of the Restoration process. This begins with individual initiative documenting personal grassroots status empowering & invoking America’s Confederated Republican form of government. This provides Confederates a distinctly separate venue & jurisdiction apart from Democracy & any of its foreign law that is non-applicable. Rightful jurisdiction & venue can be immediately declared & recognized worldwide. CERTIFIABLE RESTORATION OF CONFEDERATED STATE REPUBLIC GOVERNMENT IS ACCOMPLISHED IN TERRITORY INHABITED BY CONFEDERATE STATE CITIZENS; WHERE THEIR PRIVATE PROPERTY IS LOCATED; & WHEREVER THE BUSINESS OF THEIR CONFEDERATED REPUBLICAN GOVERNMENT CONVENES. It is extremely important that some territory of the Confederated State Republic is being restored even if it is initially limited. RESTORATION-ONE-CITIZEN-AT-A-TIME IMMEDIATELY ESTABLISHES DEFINED TERRITORIAL LIMITS FOR PERSONAL SOVEREIGNTY & REPUBLICAN GOVERNMENT UNDER THE CONFEDERATED STATE REPUBLIC.
(5). Tennessee State Republic Government recognizes the free & independent Tennessee Republic articulated in its Constitution of 1796. BY DECLARATION, RIGHT & INHERITANCE we choose to be governed under America’s original Confederated Republican form of government founded upon dejure constitutional authority [1781 Articles of Confederation; 1787 U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights; 1861 Constitution for the Confederate States of America; 1787 Northwest Ordinance; & 1796 Tennessee Constitution]. The Confederate States of America [since 1861], Tennessee Republic [since 1796] & the other State Republics defend & preserve it ongoing today. IT HAS NEVER BEEN SURRENDERED. Confederate State Citizens possess unalienable Inherent Political Power & Freedom of Political Will confirmed in international & domestic law & treaty, constitution, Law of the Land, case law, Law of Nations, Rules of War, Geneva Convention, etc. Dual Citizenship is often of Necessity because of imposed Foreign Law, Martial Rule, Occupation & Reconstruction. Our God-given natural-born rights & State Citizen sovereign immunity are exempt from any Foreign law that is non-applicable. Our lawful political separation from Democracy maintains a distinctly separate jurisdiction & venue. Interference with Confederate internal affairs is subject to Nullification & Interposition of Right. Foreign administrative, judicial, legislative or executive trespass upon a Confederate State Citizen is internationally recognized prohibited activity wrongfully committed under color of defacto law. Foreign authority must not trespass the Right to Travel & Safe Passage of State Citizens governed under the Tennessee State Republic.
(6). This is about restoration of Confederated State Republic interim Government being done similar to how today’s interim Confederate central Government was restored a few years ago without a Citizen quota pre-qualification. Any head count quota qualification only applies to state & central government full restoration process that will be coming. For right now, State Citizens are able to restore interim phase state government in the same manner that Confederated States of America restored central provisional Government still in its present interim phase. This facilitates the return of dejure State government from its existence in political exile, bringing it forward to the point where the Provisional Central Government full restoration agenda plan begins.
(7). The Tennessee Plan can aptly be considered to be Restoration-One Citizen-at-a-Time strategy, & officially structured very similar to provisional Central Government. Tennessee State Citizenship registration will still be through the Central Government Registrar. This important feature distinguishes our State Government from any rogue entity that attempts to impersonate State Government.
(8). The Tennessee Plan is about “bottom up” personal grassroots level initiative immediately complementing Central Government “top down” initiative. We reaffirm the Tennessee Republic‘s alliance to the American Confederation embodied by the Confederate States of America interim provisional Government.
CURRENT STATUS OF THE TENNESSEE REPUBLIC & ITS STATE CITIZENS
(9). Tennessee State Citizens under Confederated Republican form of government are natural-born individuals & not any form of statutory fiction. They possess unalienable God-given natural rights. Americas Confederated Republic does not condone the fictional, non-natural-born individual status the U.S. Democracy subtly bestows on U.S. citizens under the 14th Amendment. This modern form of Slavery & Peonage is conferred upon citizens in order to control them in the manner of a legal fiction & chattel property. It is absurd to govern that a natural-born individual can be considered a legal fiction or property to control them, their private property & birthright of political, economic, religious or social freedom. This failed & prostituted political ideology & contemporary institution of Slavery represents specific instances of force, fraud & conflict of interest that corrupt the concept that a natural-born individual is the sole & absolute owner of themselves, & that their body is unalienable. If it were not so, unalienable rights to life, liberty, freedom & property while one engages in honorable, productive & non-harmful activities of life would be wrongfully compromised. Neither Slavery; nor Peonage Involuntary Servitude except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted; nor Fiction Status conferred upon natural-born individuals to treat them as legal fictions & chattel property exists within the Confederate States of America, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
(10). Tennessee State Citizens under Confederated Republican form of government shall not be deprived of the right to hold title [allodial, absolute, freehold, non-statutory, in law, legal & lawful] to their private property. No government hindrance will be created that will infringe upon their unalienable & absolute right to claim their private property in a perpetual estate for themselves & their posterity. To do otherwise in the manner of the Democracy corrupts a political system & causes wrongful damage upon the sovereign people. America‘s Confederated Republic does not condone Democracy’s defacto system where all private property is assumed to be donated for public use & security collateral for debt of a foreign authority.
(11). Adverse foreign administrative, judicial, legislative & executive process wrongfully brought against Tennessee State Citizens constitute trespass & damage internationally recognized as prohibited activity committed under color of defacto law. America’s original Republic & Rule of Law are dishonored when Americans are subjected to harmful policy often resembling War Crimes, Ethnic Cleansing, Social, Political & Economic Genocide. Some participation in Democracy processes & politics [such as Dual citizenship for those resisting exclusive "U.S. citizenship" under Democracy's Fourteenth Amendment] is often made Of Necessity because of imposed Foreign Law, Martial Rule, Occupation & Reconstruction. Compiled references to world-wide authorities are being publicized for international public record serving notice in condemnation of imposed harmful foreign policy & governing demeaning to America’s original Republic & Rule of Law.
(12). Any foreign interference with the internal affairs of the Confederate States of America, its sovereign States & Citizens will not be tolerated, & subject to Nullification & Interposition of Right of Necessity. Sovereign immunity & God-given natural-born rights are exempt from inapplicable foreign laws, process, jurisdiction or venue. A Confederate State Citizen possesses unalienable inherent political power & freedom of political will recognized in international law & treaty, domestic law of the land, constitution, statute & case law. Their rightful venue is territory inhabited by Confederate State Citizens; where their private property is located; & wherever the business of their Confederated Republican Government convenes. BY DECLARATION, RIGHT & INHERITANCE, Confederate State Citizens choose the protections of America’s original Confederated Republican form of government founded upon constitutional authority [1781 Articles of Confederation; 1787 U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights]. The 1861 Constitution for the Confederate States of America, embodied by dejure politics of the State Republics, faithfully defend, preserve & carry it forward ongoing today.
(13). NATURAL LAW THAT GOVERNS: Behavioral laws of nature often do their own enforcing when not obeyed. Unlike man-made laws that require mankind enforcement [apprehended, charged, prosecuted, sentenced] natural laws can be self-enforcing. When God given natural laws are understood & accepted for their eternal truth, their righteousness becomes self-evident. Natural laws unite, control & affect Americans who have much “Common Cause” as they seek life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, freedom & liberties in the manner Americas founding Fathers envisioned & established. Democracy distortions of logic & imposition of foreign ideology causes negative consequences as a result of that government’s immoral & atheistic political behavior. Democracy leaders force America to advance from crisis to crisis, many being the result of Democracy wrongful activity. True Americans want rational & honest government resulting in behavior that is trustworthy & solvent. True Americans have always wanted freedom, rights, non-fiction status, exemption from foreign jurisdiction & government by Constitutional Bill of Rights as the Founding Fathers established. Confederate State Citizens have much in common with all Americans who share “Common Cause” & Grievance.
(14). ANY TERRITORY DECLARED WITHIN THE CONFEDERACY HAS AN HONORABLE CONFEDERATE HERITAGE & GODLY CHRISTIAN BASED GOVERNMENT WHICH MUST ALWAYS BE PRESERVED & PROTECTED. America’s original Confederated Republican Government is for both Christians & non-Christians, all who require the birthright of liberty & desire to be governed under righteous authority established upon Christianity used as a basis for Rule of Law & Law of the Land. Christian values are pillars of the character of America’s Confederacy, as the Founders recognized that religion & morality are necessary to proper social & civic stability. Therefore, it is also proper to internationally declare that to be redeemed out of Democracy is for the greater glory of the Lord who guides & protects those of Christian descent.
[Politically motivated agendas wrongfully portray & vilify the Confederacy, its right to exist, its heritage & history, its symbols & personages. This despicable activity does not stand up to logic or truth & is wrongfully being committed under color of defacto law without lawful or legal basis. Vandalism & attack upon Confederate heritage & history is injury inflicted upon all who endorse preservation & defense of America's original Republic & Confederated Republican form of government. The Public at Large becomes damaged by this contemptible, immoral & criminal type of dishonorable activity. Confederate symbols, personages, flags, property, landmarks, etc., have become politically demonized & vilified to cover up the real intention of those who create division. Honorable Confederate heritage & history has been distorted & used as a tool for hate by those who distract & use this fake moral front as justification for military aggression that subdued America's original Republic & Confederated Republican Government. If you want to protect your culture, you must have a government that is not at war with that culture].
[The Christianity that founded America’s Republic must not be compromised & must always be preserved & protected even though under attack by atheistic forces at work within Democracy. Jesus Christ & the Apostles also lived in occupied territory such as Confederate Americans are subjected to today. Christ's teaching in the "Render unto Caesar" doctrine could mean that nothing belonged to Caesar in Palestine because Roman authority under Caesar was occupying the land without dejure authority. He was addressing the type of authority to which Christians are & are not obliged to submit, showing how the same principles which oblige to submit to government equally instruct to resist tyranny. Republican government provides for a "shield from government tyranny". It is foolish to argue that Christians are to submit to authority in absolute & unlimited terms under all circumstances. Blind obedience to atheistic civil authority not recognizing unalienable natural rights derived from God by opting for Democracy might not be a righteous individual's appropriate government].
[The only force that seems able to withstand the force, will & resources of the U.S. Democracy over time, is the non-insurgent political element composed of sovereign State Citizens lawfully choosing to be governed under America's original constitutional Confederated Republican form of government guaranteed at Article 4 Section 4].
[EXPOSING & PUBLISHING world-wide authorities of established public record which recognize legitimacy for America's Republic full Restoration & peaceful political separation from Democracy has become necessary. This international consensus addresses: (a) What Democracy has obligated itself to comply with & be responsible for; (b) What laws are applicable & must be obeyed by State Citizens while subjected to imposed Foreign Law, Martial Rule, Occupation & Reconstruction; (c) That Democracy administrative, judicial, legislative & executive prohibited activity committed under color of defacto foreign law & policy often resembles Social, Political & Economic Genocide, War Crimes & Ethnic Cleansing; (d) That Confederate State Citizens possess unalienable Inherent Political Power & Freedom of Political Will which may invoked by Declaration, Right & Inheritance; (e) World-wide recognition of legitimacy for America's Confederated Republic political option as a distinctly separate jurisdiction & venue apart from Democracy.
[State Citizens take pride in the fact that their Republic & government is not at war with any Country. The only exception is that a peace treaty between the Confederate States of America & the United States Democracy has never been signed. Therefore, a state of war state of war still technically exists with the Confederacy technically at war with the U.S. Democracy, but Confederate State Citizens are admonished to avoid any form of military hostility against the Democracy or the satellite states thereof. So long as a peace treaty has not been signed to honorably finish what 1865 military surrenders proposed & occupation still exists, Confederate State Citizens are obliged to obey only the foreign laws of the occupying nation that are applicable. Prior to a negotiated Peace Treaty & termination of occupation we pray that the Lord will bless His people if we are worthy & that He will shield the innocent from harm. We stand willing to hold beneficial & positive negotiations of friendship & cooperation with our occupying nation the U.S. Democracy for a proper & responsible Peace Treaty to formally end the war of Northern Aggression against the Southern States declared by Abraham Lincoln in 1861. A Peace Treaty would be helpful in Resolving Borders & protecting established Sovereignty, Freedoms & Rights Confederates retain. The unlawful & illegal military & civil occupation of our Confederate State Republics must come to an end both formally & in actual fact. Democracy confessions include: the United States has been in a permanent state of “national emergency” since March 9, 1933, and possibly as far back as the War for Southern Independence, Senate report 93-549 (1973); Trading with the Enemy Act, 65th Congress, Ses. 1, Ch 105, 186, 12 U.S.C.A. 95a];
(15). ECONOMIC, POLITICAL, MORAL & SPIRITUAL MOTIVES COMPLIMENT CONFEDERATES TO SEPARATE FROM & “COME OUT OF” DEMOCRACY & RETURN TO AMERICA’S ORIGINAL REPUBLIC. Many seek liberty from any nexus attaching them to subtle financial bondage having a strangle-hold on our way of life & beloved country. Confederates are often compelled to avoid political relationships offensive & foreign to their beliefs, values, proud heritage & they choose to remain apart from political philosophy shared by communism & socialism in contempt of America’s posterity & best interest. Democracy is not right for many Americans because it does not comply to moral accountability, restriction on government abuse, growth or unrestricted seizure while financially motivated to plunder our labor & wealth as American core values are rejected in favor of internationalist concepts. Even though no sovereign State Citizen can lose their God vested natural rights, God vested natural rights are not respected under Democracy’s foreign laws, martial rule & occupation. Thus many are compelled to “come out of” the National soulless empire & remain apart from its civil authority based upon agnostic, atheistic, humanist doctrine replacing Christianity that regards a natural-born individual a statutory fiction & disregards God Almighty.
[Case Law: Dred Scott vs. Sanford, 60 US, 393, 19 How, 1856: The laws of a country do not rightfully operate on and fix the status of persons who are within its limits In Itinere or who are abiding there for definite temporary purposes…that these laws, known to writers on public and private international law as personal statutes, operate only on the inhabitants of the country]; [In Itinere: meaning "by the way or passing" while "within" & having the primary idea of rest & continuance]; [Blacks Deluxe 4th Ed: "On a journey or circuit"]; Biblically: “on the way” coming out of Egypt & Babylon]; [Today's application: economic, political, moral & spiritual "coming out of" Democracy's Contemporary Babylon].
(16). DEMOCRACY OCCUPATION OF THE REPUBLIC HAS ONLY BEEN TEMPORARILY ALLOWED BECAUSE AMERICA’S REPUBLIC HAS NOT BEEN VISIBLY OPERATIONAL. IT REMAINS VIABLE & AVAILABLE WHILE WAITING YOUR PERSONAL RESTORATION EFFORT TO AWAKEN THIS WONDERFUL “SLEEPING GIANT”.

They articulate international recognition of legitimacy for restoration of the Republic & peaceful political separation maintaining a distinctly separate jurisdiction & venue from Democracy. Confederates will always remain dedicated to America’s honorable Confederate Cause. If one becomes no longer able to assist, another Confederate will carry on so not be deterred by any contingency.

The members of Tennessee’s interim Confederated Republican State government recognize that…..
AMERICA’S ORIGINAL CONFEDERATED REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT FOUNDED UPON DEJURE CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY HAS NEVER BEEN SURRENDERED. AN INITIAL DEGREE OF RESTORATION OF INTERIM STATE REPUBLIC GOVERNMENT BECOMES AN ACCOMPLISHED FACT EVERY TIME A STATE CITIZEN IS CERTIFIED & PARTICIPATES IN THE BODY POLITIC.
Official Interim Provisional Government business address is: PO Box 101, Watertown, Tennessee (37184)
