I am an American. America is my land, where my fathers died. I bow to no man. I am responsible for my own life and the lives of my family. I will defend my family and our land with my life. As I would not be a slave neither shall I enslave others in chains or by claiming the fruit of their labor through taxation or conscription. As an American I swear to God Almighty to live a life of honesty and integrity. As an act of Christian charity, I will help those nearest me so live their lives. I shall never relinquish my sovereignty, not to a king neither to any man sent to represent my public interest. I am an American and my life shall be an example worthy of that legacy, purchased with the blood, sweat, toil and tears of many generations, so help me God!
