Tired of Endless
Electioneering with Endless Money?
Try a Constitutional
amendment based on modern functionality.
1. In order to maintain Tranquility and Justice
within the States, no transfer of funds for the
purposes of election to public office will be lawful
unless it is within 60 days of the date of the
national elections, or when the transfer of funds
for a political purpose is made in certified gold or
silver bullion from a registered facility within the
Section 2. The Congress,
after Supreme Court advice and consent two years
before each election, shall have authority to make
laws governing the transfer of such monies destined
for election purposes .”
Speculation: “Enabled by
this kind of ruling, about half of all television
advertising supporting a president's campaign was paid
for by groups that do not disclose their donors.”
Altogether $2 billion by both parties in two years,
with perhaps $800 million from offshore accounts?
Each $200 million before
XXVIII Amendment’s 60 day deadline would mean 7400
pounds of gold would have to be hand delivered to
advertising outlets and producers. Multiply by $ 2
billion over 4 years minus 60 days with all of it
registered at US banks?
Allegiance to What?
The Pledge of
Allegiance is endlessly repeated as a pledge to a
'flag'. OK, but perhaps it would be better to have
a pledge of citizenship that all citizens must take
to establish them as citizens? The 14th Amendment
makes birth on American soil the criteria for
automatic citizenship but why isn't that citizenship
established by a legally binding oath of allegiance
to the Constitution itself? For many,
the idea of adhering to a set of Constitutional
rules is not why they came here. As a 'what
if', suppose the pledge of allegiance was a
binding condition of citizenship, thereby
eliminating the occupation category 'CINO'?
"As a conscious
being of Creation, I do swear and affirm to
uphold the responsibilities of citizenship and
to protect the Constitution of the United States
of America. I do swear and affirm that I will
contribute as I am able to the common defense
and general welfare of all citizens of the
United States and to no other sovereignty. I
swear and affirm my belief in the blessings of
Constitutional liberty and democracy; that they
establish domestic tranquility through justice.
I swear to embrace those Constitutional rights
and duties in my daily life with due respect for
the rights of others not identified as enemies
of the Constitution or the human race.
Is a Citizenship oath taken on Faith
or is it a social contract between peoples
trying to live together in 'domestic Tranquility'
as the Preamble states?
But what if the Oath of Alligiance for citizenship were placed in a national passport?
would it look like this?
