Thank you for that, Wolf. I admit, it was a distracting day and your call for a new Constitution was better formed than mine.
Here are some things *I* think we should include:
All elected Federal representatives must have on their person 24/7 (with potty breaks alone, maybe a bit of privacy for conjugal purposes...) cameras
with audio, fed into a public access channel.
This would be their sacrifice for their country, ensuring that only those that really want to SERVE serve. It will allow us, the People, to verify
that what is going on is in our best interest. It would eliminate secrecy, but then, secrecy is a democracy's weakness - any democracy that allows
secrecy is open to corruption and downfall.
As was mentioned on your thread, I would absolutely state, in clear, unambiguous terms that NEVER may we have a currency run by private interests. We
must issue our own currency.
We MUST operate only with funds collected. We, the People, are the sort that, should an emergency spring up, we will send our cash to help.
Taxes will be VOLUNTARY, and we may designate the exact program to which they go.
The pay of any congresscritter, or any other Federal elected official, may NEVER exceed the mean income of the People. This will motivate them to
raise OUR standard of living!
Any organization representing themselves as bringers of news MUST allow any side wishing to have their say speak in equal time - we may choose to
decline this option. Should deliberate fabrication take place, the organization will be disbanded and the involved members will be fined.
As I think of more, I will add them.
