A Resolution of the Town of Twisp, Declaring the Position of Affirmation of, Belief in, and Support for, the State and Federal Constitutional Rights of the Citizenry.
Approved by: Twisp Town Council
WHEREAS, certain recent acts of various legislative bodies have directly or covertly contradicted the Sovereign Rights reserved by and for the Citizens in both State and Federal Constitutions and founding documents, then,
Now, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the Town Council of the Town of Twisp that;
Section 1: The Town of Twisp supports all, lawful and Constitutional efforts to prevent and investigate terrorist or other criminal acts and prosecute their perpetrators.
Section 2: The Town of Twisp believes that sufficient Constitutionally acceptable tools exist, prior to the passage of the “USA Patriot Act” or other such restrictive acts, for Law Enforcement to accomplish their intended lawful purpose.
Section 3: The Town of Twisp believes that any act, enactment, law, or legislation, etc., which dilutes, weakens, or denies due process of the State and/or Federal Constitutionally guaranteed Rights of the Citizen is void from its inception, is unenforceable in our jurisdiction, and should be quashed, repealed or found by a court of jurisdiction to be unconstitutional in part or in full, as appropriate, to protect the Rights and Freedom of the Citizenry.
Section 4: The Twisp Town Council strongly encourages all Citizens, organizations, and governmental legislative bodies to study, for understanding, the State and Federal Constitutions and their history, and the Bill of Rights and its history so that they can recognize and resist attempts to undermine our Constitutional Republics and the system of government that has brought our civilization so much success.
Section 5: The Twisp Town Council believes it is the duty of every citizen to protect and defend the State and Federal Constitutions from all enemies-foreign and domestic- and to demonstrate outspoken respect for the Rights that have been paid for with the blood and sweat of the American People throughout our history.
