I just dug up your Republic Constitution or called Commonwealth-
COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA
Inherent Rights of Mankind
All men are born equally free and independent, and have certain inherent and indefeasible rights, among which are those of enjoying and defending life
and liberty, of acquiring, possessing and protecting property and reputation, and of pursuing their own happiness.
All power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority and instituted for their peace, safety and happiness. For
the advancement of these ends they have at all times an inalienable and indefeasible right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner
as they may think proper.
Right to Bear Arms
The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned.
No Discrimination by Commonwealth and Its Political Subdivisions
Neither the Commonwealth nor any political subdivision thereof shall deny to any person the enjoyment of any civil right, nor discriminate against any
person in the exercise of any civil right.
Appropriations for Public Assistance, Military Service, Scholarships
No appropriation shall be made for charitable, educational or benevolent purposes to any person or community nor to any denomination and sectarian
institution, corporation or association: Provided, that appropriations may be made for pensions of gratuities for military service and to blind
persons twenty-one years of age and upwards and for assistance to mothers having dependent children and to aged persons without adequate means of
support and in the form of scholarship grants or loans for higher educational purposes to residents of the Commonwealth enrolled in institutions of
higher learning except that no scholarship, grants or loans for higher educational purposes shall be given to persons enrolled in a theological
seminary or school of theology.
Do you have welfare of any kind in your state not as laid out in this last section? If you do, it is un Constitutional
Pretty straight forward Constitution. I doubt that it is followed anymore, though.
