From the February 2009 Idaho Observer:

Declaration of the "Committees of Safety"

We believe that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

We believe that it is the obligation of every American to help preserve these rights so that we can live in a country where the freedom to live, work, and prosper is secure.

We believe that our security depends upon good, honest and brave Americans, who are well versed in the principles of freedom and individual rights; and who are united in will to protect the system that our Founders set in place for our personal safety, economic prosperity and domestic tranquility.

We believe we currently face unprecedented political, economic and social challenges that seriously threaten our liberties, our material well being, and the peaceful enjoyment of the fruits of our labors.

Therefore we have established the "Committees of Safety," declaring as our mission:

To unite and support Americans in their local communities to prepare for any catastrophic event, be it manmade or natural, political or economic in nature--by proposing, developing, and implementing solutions to our most immediate concerns. These include, but are not limited to:

1. Enabling individual preparation and local coordination necessary to secure adequate supply of the essentials for life.

2. Promoting free commerce, the right of property and a sound monetary system;

3. Developing a system of security and defense for all Americans and their communities and;

4. Decreasing apathy and increasing vigilance with respect to the operations of our political system and elected or appointed public officials.

In pursuing this mission, we honor the sacrifices of those who came before us, by carrying on the traditions of self-reliance and self-government that made America great in the past and upon which her continued greatness in the future depends.
