The Tyranny Response Team (TRT) is a dedicated group of volunteers who hold peaceable demonstrations, protests and rallies against acts of tyranny by governments and other entities that violate our unalienable rights. We are an informal, nonpartisan group of pro-freedom individuals who reject totalitarian policies that threaten our fundamental freedoms and human rights. The TRT is known for holding nonviolent protests against many forms of tyranny. We especially oppose legislation and laws which violate the original spirit and intent of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. We encourage true patriots and other pro-freedom individuals to join us. See you out on the streets!

Disclaimer: Legitimate members of the TRT are NOT "useful idiots" or shills for any business, military, politician, political party, government entity, special interest group, etc. We are neither political hacks nor extremists. Since any fool or agent provocateur may easily obtain TRT gear (i.e., T-shirts) via the Internet and run around acting like a deranged lunatic, we encourage everyone to confirm the true identity of those aforementioned potential poseurs before jumping to any false conclusions regarding real TRT members versus fakes. Real TRT members are law-abiding individuals who respect those law enforcement officials that protect our rights.

The Tyranny Response Team Creed

The Tyranny Response Team (TRT) is the embodiment of man's desire for freedom. We believe in the fundamental rights of all human beings. Our rights do not come from majority rule, from politicians, or even from the Constitution - and they are not subject to infringement by a government that ignores the Supreme Law of the Land. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, 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 pledge our commitment to the absolute restoration of the Bill of Rights, and furthermore, to strict adherence to the legal and moral principles of the Declaration of Independence, upon which this great nation was founded. We shall rise against any assault on the unalienable rights granted by our Creator. If you believe in Liberty, and in the Truths upon which this great nation was founded, and reject the idea that any government has a right to initiate violence upon the people, then you are a member of the TRT.

(The TRT, a work in progress, was established in the Year of our Lord 2000)

"They that can give up liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." -  Benjamin Franklin

"I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man." - Thomas Jefferson
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace.  We seek not your counsel, nor your arms.  Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you.  May your chains set lightly upon you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

TRT Mission Statement

The primary mission of the TRT is to insist that all laws of the Republic follow a strict adherence to the Bill of Rights, as enumerated in the body of the Constitution of the United States of America. Also, we demand that all laws, written or enforced, that conflict with these rights, be repealed. Furthermore, the individuals responsible for instigating, making, and/or enforcing such laws should be charged and prosecuted for willful violations of their oath of office and the Constitution of the United States of America.

We shall demonstrate to elected officials, public servants and the people in general, by whatever means necessary, that the Constitution of the United States of America is the Supreme Law of the Land. We hereby recognize this Supreme Law of the Land as the Rule of Law, and that this Rule is, in its basis, not subject to a prior precedent that would contradict its original intent.

To perpetuate true patriotism, and further to those of us that it would apply, we abide by our oath taken in civil service: to defend and protect the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.
