On the Nature of "Nation"

Repealing Citizens United


As an alternative to my Securing Our Sovereignty amendment, I offer another option:


  • Whereas the election of government Officials is an exercise of sovereignty over a representational form of Government;
  • Whereas the authority of our Government derives from the consent of its Citizens;
  • Whereas petitioning elected Officials is an exercise of sovereign power;
  • Whereas the success of a democracy – and a representational form of government – depend on a well-informed electorate, and thus influencing their judgment;
  • Whereas money is a decisive factor in controlling the information presented to the electorate;
  • It is a natural conclusion that money from sources other than Citizens, when applied to the political process, interferes with our natural Sovereignty.

JOINT RESOLUTION

Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States protecting the political sovereignty of the Citizens of the United States of America.

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled (two-thirds of each House concurring therein), That the following article is proposed as an amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America, which shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution when ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years after the date of its submission for ratification:

Article

Section 1

All references to “persons” made in the Constitution and the Amendments thereof, shall mean only natural born persons.

Section 2

The rights of “artificial persons” shall be inferior to the rights of natural persons, and consist only of those rights granted by United States Code and the laws of the several States.

Section 3

The exercise of sovereign authority is a right reserved exclusively to the Citizens and Nationals of the United States.

Section 4

Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

<all>


This is a preliminary draft.

The concept here is not to revoke corporate rights, but to deny them constitutional protections. Corporations are neither human beings nor citizens, and should not have equal rights.
