Section 9

The Supreme Court may make modifications in the structure of the federal court system. Its job is to make judgments based on the Constitution and federal statutes, not to change or make new laws. Congress, however, will determine how much of the federal budget is needed to finance the federal court system.

Section 10

Every individual must do what he or she promises to do by contract. An important role of the judiciary is to determine that legal contracts are honored.

Section 11

Government officials will not have immunity from prosecution while they are in office.

ARTICLE IV: States Desiring to Withdraw from the Country

A state cannot withdraw, or secede, from the rulings and protections of the United States government according to the guidelines of this Third Constitution. Too many problems would occur if various states started becoming sovereign nations.

ARTICLE V: Federal Protection of the States

Only Congress has the power to admit new states that desire to be united with our country. If one of the United States protectorates desires sovereignty, Congress will grant it because the days of colonialism are over. The federal government must protect the people of the states when there is an attack by foreigners, or if and when the state governor deems that its National Guard cannot handle an emergency situation.

ARTICLE VI: The National Debt Problem

The national debt could be paid off in ten years, largely through a 90% reduction in military spending and a progressive income tax that can ultimately reach 90%. When nations repeatedly have annual deficits, it causes the national debt to skyrocket, which then puts a large burden on the taxpayers of future generations. This Article is a recommendation, not a requirement, however.

ARTICLE VII: The National Census

The US Census will continue to be taken every ten years. Accurate statistics enable the government, private companies, and individuals to have a better understanding of the nation's demographics, which then promotes better planning for the future.

ARTICLE VIII: Approving Corporate Charters

County or municipal governments have the right to approve or revoke corporate charters and to impose taxes on corporations operating within their boundaries. They may revoke the charters of any private corporation in their districts if they determine that a particular corporation does not serve the community or benefit the environment.

March 20, 2020 I grew up in a church that said you had to speak in tongues to get saved and go to heaven. I often prayed fervently for the experience in the prayer room at church, where people would cry and wail, and roll on the floor. One (more...)
