A corporation is not a natural person and should not have the same rights as a natural person. A corporation cannot make financial contributions to any local, state, or federal government election campaign.
A state government can also revoke a corporate charter in a particular county if it considers that a company is detrimental to surrounding counties within the state.
ARTICLE IX: An Alternative to the Federal Reserve
The former Federal Reserve System will be eliminated when the Third Constitution is implemented. Public Banking in the United States shall be organized and supervised by Treasury and audited by the US Congress.
ARTICLE X: The Primary Role of Government
The primary role of government is the protection of its citizens. Actions such as, murder, rape, robbery, pollution, theft, embezzlement, fraud, arson, kidnapping, battery, trespassing, harassment, and nuisance--violate the right of others. The government should investigate, prevent, and have consequences for the individuals who engage in these types of illicit or illegal actions.
ARTICLE XI: The Need for Habeas Corpus
Habeas Corpus is a concept of law in which a person may not be detained by the government unless the government has a valid reason for putting the person in jail or prison. Even in a national emergency, the right to Habeas Corpus should not be violated. Prisoners of war or alleged terrorists, foreign and domestic, must be given a fair trial.
ARTICLE XII: The Need for Social Security
The national Social Security System will not be cancelled. Some American citizens (because their employers did not offer pensions, or because of misfortune or unwise financial planning) will need monthly Social Security payments (money that they themselves paid into throughout their entire life-working history) in order to survive financially in their old age. The federal government does not have the right to take money from the Social Security fund for any other purpose than what the fund was designed for.
ARTICLE XIII: Decentralizing Elements of the Federal Government
The budgets of some current federal departments and agencies could be reduced, as state, county, township, and precinct levels of government are given more autonomy and local self-reliance. Responsible individuals and local communities in a free society are encouraged to make their own self-determined choices, as long as other individuals and communities are not harmed in the process.
Article XIV: Keeping the Best of the Former Government
This Third Constitution does not attempt to totally eradicate the federal government under the previous Constitution, with all its former federal statutes and protocols. That would be foolish. Old policies, statutes, regulations, and protocols can be changed as needed to reflect the ever-changing new attitudes, beliefs, and values of the day.
ARTICLE XV: A New Era of Honesty and Transparency
The wealth of individuals and of corporations must not be used to influence the political decision-making of voters. A new era of openness, honesty, and transparency in government, private business, the media, and foreign affairs is vital to our well-being. Moreover, it is also important that we are open, honest, and vulnerable in our interpersonal relationships.
