I propose to make America better that we should adopt a new government. I believe some of you might agree at least partially to this idea.

What I would like to first propose is a change in the constitution...

Too add in the following amendments.

Amendment 1: Prohibition of the use of Petroleum

This amendment pertains to the use of petroleum products as the use of fuel, except for propane, which is solely for the use of an optional alternative to cooking fuel. Instead, we shall focus on Ethyl Alcohol, a clean burning fuel mandated in use for all automobiles by the great Henry Ford.

Amendment 2: All cases in which an individual is accused before the law shall be done in the inquisitorial system. This is because the adversary system creates far more chaos than order in a national state.

Amendment 3: The Legislative power of the United States shall not construe to extend with any suit or dominion over against any of the states within the United States.

That means the United States cannot make laws to simple punish the people within either state of the United States. So we don't have a case against State's rights.

Amendment 4: The United States must follow International laws, unless they go against the constitution of the United States or the Superior Court Justices find them unacceptable and addresses the need of a handicap depiction over such a law to make it friendly and acceptable in interpretation to as a law in the United States.

The Superior Court will be defined later in this thread.

Amendment 5: The businesses within the United States shall remain free from government intervention, but they are subjected to democratic socialism. In which all employees have an equal say to transactions and other business decisions, including the firing or letting off of employees. In addition, every citizen shall be taxed according to his or her income salary and established wealth of valuables and possessions. Those with more wealth shall be taxed greater to insure that the poor are taxed less. The wealth accumulated by the wealthy shall be used for government projects to insure a better society or a more prosperous society and hire workers to insure less unemployment.

Amendment 6: The government shall remain free from any overwhelming religious influence.

That might already be in use.

And now to about the correction of the government system starting with the Judicial System.

The Judical System shall comprise of a Supreme Court divided into a Superior Court and a Lesser Court.

There will be nine districts and each shall elect a Superior Justice. The Superior Justices are elected for ten year terms for as many terms as they can be re-elected.

The first district shall contain the states of Alaska, Hawaii, and united vote from American Territories (Such as Puerto Rico).

The second district shall contain the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming.

The third district shall contain the states of California, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado.

The fourth district shall contain the states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, and Minnesota.

The fifth district shall contain the states of Texas, Louisianna, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missiouri, and Kansas.

The sixth district shall contain the states of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin.

The seventh district shall contain the states of Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Sourth Carolina, North Carolina, and Tennessee.

The Eighth district shall contain the states of Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and Pennsylvania in addition of the District of Colombia.

The Final district shall contain the states of New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine.

These districts may vary if the states decide to do so.

Continuing onward in the next post...

If all superior court justices have resigned, died, or are removed from office, then the Senate shall decide on approving lesser court justices to take the possession of temporary superior court justices, until the next Judicial Election.

The Lesser Justices are appointed by the President for life with nomination of the Senate and the approval of the Superior Court.

Both types of Justices need to be at least 45 years old, native born in the United States, and have passed an intelligence examination.

Executive Branch

The executive branch shall consist of one president, the cabinent, the two presidential assistant, two vice presidents, and four vice presidential assistants.

The president is elected by a complete popular vote that is stationed and reviewed in each district. Local judges and their departments are brought as the mediatiors to insure that the legitamacy of the election is not rigged.

However if the legitamacy of the election has been rigged then the election for that district shall be monitored by a member of the lesser or by a superior supreme court, which is supervised and monitored by a Superior Supreme Court Justice. This chance of occurance however is very much unlikely.

If there happens to be a tie or a close time of a margin of a one hundred or less votes between candidates, then the state popular election ballots shall decide who becomes president. By this I mean that the voting total from each state shall decide the victor of the presidential election. If the voting turns out to be a tie between states like 25/25, then the Supreme Court and the Senate will decide who shall become president.

The two candidates with the majority of votes that loss will become Vice-Presidents and they serve ordinarily as Vice-Presidents for the remainder of the presidential term.

The president shall have 2 running mates which will become presidential assistants. The same will go for the two leading candidates that become VPs, their running mates will become their presidential assistants.

Each presidential term is 4 years and can serve up to 5 terms.
