A RESOLUTION OF THE OROVILLE CITY COUNCIL DECLARING THE CITY OF OROVILLE TO BE A CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC CITY
WHEREAS, the Constitution of the United States protects our rights, endowed by our creator, as well as guarantees liberties to American citizens, including the establishment of justice, the promotion of the general welfare and securing the blessings of liberty; and
WHEREAS, the Constitution espouses many principles upon which the United States is founded, namely the separation of powers, individual rights, and the rule of law; and
WHEREAS, the Constitution of the State of California provides that all people are by nature free and independent and have inalienable rights, including enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing, and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy; and
WHEREAS, John Adams, the second president of the United States, wrote, “the very definition of a Republic, is ‘an Empire of Laws, and not of men.’ That, as a Republic is the best of governments, so that particular arrangement of the powers of society, or in other words that form of government, which is best contrived to secure an impartial and exact execution of the laws, is the best of Republics;” and
WHEREAS, the members of the City Council of the City of Oroville believe in the separation of powers, individual rights, and the rule of law as outlined in the United States Constitution, including the freedom for local government to have local control over issues related to the citizens who reside within the City’s jurisdictional boundaries.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED by the Oroville City Council that the City of Oroville is declared to be a Constitutional Republic City.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED by the Oroville City Council that any executive orders issued by the State of California or by the United States federal government that are overreaching or clearly violate our constitutionally protected rights will not be enforced by the City of Oroville against its citizens.
