[H: There is hardly enough time and space to adequately cover the comments applicable to these sections, but briefly:

The comments which will be utilized are offered by Col. Curtis B. Dally.  He speaks as an arousal layman who will emphasize "key points" for you who are unsuspecting, and, therefore, unalerted--those who find it hard to believe that a few wealthy, politically-perverted-minded individuals, and their well-kept stooges, would stoop so low as to stick a knife in the back of their fellow-Americans and attempt to destroy the fruits of 200 years of struggle and great achievement!  A struggle for the advancement and well-being of Free Men, in your enlightened, Constitutional Republic!  I thank both Col. Dall for his observations and E. Stanley Rittenhouse who together offer this document.  I would guess from the formatting that the original document can be obtained through Liberty Library without my cluttering rearrangement of sequence, etc.  It simply seems to me that you need to attend a few comments AS YOU READ THE DOCUMENT SEGMENTS.  We shall then offer their "summary" in full.]



Article 1.  "A": Rights:

S. 1.  Note the glaring "exception".  WHO is to define "the emergency"?

S. 2.  Another "exception"!  Also note the word, "Privileged"!

S. 3.  Very vague, but very carefully phrased.

S. 4.  No comment.

S. 5.  "The Court of Rights and Responsibilities"? can decide whether or not YOU have been guilty of "discrimination"--THIS IS HARASSMENT IF NOTHING MORE.

S. 6.  WHAT determines "eligibility"?

S. 7.  No comment.

S. 8.  "The practice of religion shall be privileged"--a very dangerous statement!  This could totally deny your present Constitutional Right to the "free exercise thereof".

S. 9.  No comment.

S. 10.  Note "National Sharing Fund" (?) How about that for a good gimmick?

S. 11.  WHO is to decide the "appropriate tests of eligibility" FOR EDUCATION?

S. 12.  In referring to "compensation", the word, "just" is flagrantly omitted.  A serious and very ominous omission!

S. 13 & 14.  No comment.

S. 15.  WHO is to declare the "emergency"?

S. 16.  This appears quite "involved" in that it coddles criminals while, I'm sure, restricts innocent parties.

Article I, "B":  Responsibilities: [H: Some sections will be left out and to save time we ask you to assume no special comment.  There is no reason to go through this exercise for the obvious is so glaring that it need no added attention, I would hope.]


S. 1.  "A corresponding responsibility" is vague and is obviously quite dangerous as it corresponds to "what"?

S. 2.  Contains obvious Socialistic overtones.

S. 4.  Very vague!  Also, note the word, "shall".  "Shall" is a command!

S. 6.  "Fairness to all"--sounds nice but has no offered foundation upon which to use the term.

S. 8.  Citizens shall be deprived of their ARMS.  The is the age-old "gag" of all tyrants; their favorite technique, to first deprive all law-abiding citizens of their means of protection for assault. This section is clever, slick and extremely dangerous!  [*] [*]

S. 11.  Aimed to "muzzle" Retired Officers of the Armed Forces!  Why would they want to do THAT?  Ask any old HONEST retired officer!





SECTION 1.  There shall be Newstates, each compromising no less than 5 percent of the whole population.  Existing states may continue and may have the status of Newstates if the Boundary Commission, hereinafter provided, shall so decide.  The Commission shall be guided in its recommendations by the probability of accommodation to the conditions for effective government. States electing by referendum to continue if the Commission recommends otherwise shall nevertheless accept all Newstates obligations.

SECTION 2.  The Newstates shall have constitutions formulated and adopted by processes hereinafter prescribed.

SECTION 3.  They shall have Governors; legislatures, and planning, administration processes hereinafter prescribed.

SECTION 4.  Their political procedures shall be organized and supervised by electoral Overseers; but their elections shall not be in years of presidential election.

SECTION 5.  The electoral apparatus of the Newstates of America shall be available to them, and they may be allotted funds under rules agreed to by the national Overseer; but expenditures may not be made by or for any candidate except they be approved by the Overseer; and requirements of residence in a voting district shall be no longer than thirty days.

SECTION 6.  They may charter subsidiary governments, urban or rural, and my delegate to them powers appropriate to their responsibilities.

SECTION 7.  They may lay, or may delegate the laying of, taxes; but these shall conform to the restraints stated thereinafter for the Newstates of America but the objects appropriate for taxation shall be clearly designated.

SECTION 9.  Taxes on land may be at higher rates than those on its improvements.

SECTION 10.  They shall be responsible for the administration of public services not reserved to the government of the Newstates of America, such activities being concerted with those of corresponding national agencies, where these exist, under arrangements common to all.

SECTION 11.  The rights and responsibilities prescribed in this Constitution shall be effective in the Newstates and shall be suspended only in emergency when declared by Governors and not disapproved by the Senate of the Newstates of America.

SECTION 12.  Police powers of the Newstates shall extend to all matters not reserved to the Newstates of America; but preempted powers shall not be impaired.

SECTION 13.  Newstates may not enter into any treaty, alliance, confederation, or agreement unless approved by the Boundary Commission hereinafter provided.

They may not coin money, provide for the payment of debts in any but legal tender, or make any charge for inter-Newstates services.  They may not enact expost facto laws or ones impairing the obligation of contracts.

SECTION 14.  Newstates may not impose barriers to imports from other jurisdictions or impose any hindrance to citizen's freedom of movement.

SECTION 15.  If governments of the Newstates fail to carry out fully their constitutional duties, their officials shall be warned and may be required by the Senate on the recommendation of the Watchkeeper, to forfeit revenues from the Newstates of America.



[H: I hear you, readers, you think I'm giving you a "big whammy" JOKE.  Oh don't I wish! THIS IS THE "REAL STUFF", CITIZENS!  THIS IS ALREADY IN PRACTICAL APPLICATION AS THE SET OF RULES UTILIZED RIGHT NOW (CALLED BY DIFFERENT NAMES TO FOOL YOU).  This is THE Constitution to serve as interim management for the transition to the One World Order Dictatorship and integration into the Global Government through the United Nations top Elite.  It is about as far from a JOKE as I can possibly imagine this afternoon.]


S. 1.  "There shall be Newstates"--This is very subversive, inflammatory and Communistic!  Note "The Boundary Commission" and its extensive proposed powers "to decide".  "This is complete Regimentation!  Incredible!

S. 2.  NO!

S. 3.  NO!  Too much "planning" (to submerge the individual!)

S. 4.  Note "electoral OVERSEER".

S. 8.  Dangerous for American Labor; carries a strong political note to boost trade with communist countries, particularly the Soviet Union!  Looks like a Corporate Socialist, such as Nelson Rockefeller, had a strong hand in shaping THIS one.

S. 11.  So-called "States Rights" are subject to "Emergency" rulings by the Governors, with the approval of the Senate of the Newstates of America, so all States Rights hang on a very slender thread!  Hence, they are down-graded.

S.12.  Dangerous...Suggests a Police State!

S. 13.  Again, "The Boundary Commission" appears, with firm control over the "Newstates".

S. 15.  Looks very much like a Police State set up!  A club over the "Newstates" wielded by the "Watchkeeper".

[H: If you aren't trembling in your boots then you ARE NOT ALIVE!  I repeat: "This is ALREADY being practiced as Martial law, "districts", IRS, etc.  Let us go on through Article III and close this segment, please.]




The Electoral Branch

SECTION 1.  To arrange for participation by the electorate in the determination of policies and the selection of officials, there shall be an Electoral Branch.

SECTION 2.  An Overseer of electoral procedures shall be chosen by majority of the Senate and may be removed by a two-thirds vote.  It shall be the Overseer's duty to supervise the organization of national and district parties, arrange for discussion among them, and provide for the nomination and election of candidates for public office.  While in office the Overseer shall belong to no political organization; and after each presidential elections shall offer to resign.

SECTION 3.  A national party shall be one having had at least a 5 percent affiliation in the latest general election; but a new party shall be recognized when valid petitions have been signed by at least 2 percent at a third, or 15 percent at further elections.

District parties shall be recognized when at least 2 percent of the voters shall have signed petitions of affiliation; but recognition shall be withdrawn upon failure to attract the same percentages as are necessary for the continuance of national parties.

SECTION 4.  Recognition by the Overseer shall bring parties within established regulations and entitle them to common privileges.

SECTION 5.  The Overseer shall promulgate rules for party conduct and shall see that fair practices are maintained, and for this purpose shall appoint deputies in each district and shall supervise the choice, in district and national conventions, of party administrators.  Regulations and appointments may be objected to by the Senate.

Candidates for delegate may become eligible by presenting petitions signed by two hundred registered voters.  They shall be elected by party members on the first Tuesday in March, those having the largest number of voters being chosen until the three hundred be complete.  Ten alternates shall also be chosen by the same process.

District conventions shall be held on the first Tuesday in April.  Delegates shall choose three candidates for membership in the House of Representatives, the three having the most votes becoming candidates.

    b.  Arrange for the election each three years of three members of the House of Representatives in each district from among the candidates chosen in party conventions, the three having the most votes to be elected.

    a.  Arrange for national conventions to meet nine years after previous presidential elections, with an equal number of delegates from each district, the whole number not to exceed one thousand.

Candidates for delegates shall be eligible when petitions signed by five hundred registered voters have been filed.  Those with the most votes, together with two alternates, being those next in number of votes, shall be chosen in each district.

    b.  Approve procedures in these conventions for choosing one hundred candidates to be members-at-large of the House of Representatives, whose terms shall be coterminous with that of the President.  For this purpose delegates shall file one choice with convention officials.  Voting on submissions shall proceed until on hundred achieve 10 percent, but not more than three candidates may be resident in any one district; if any district have more than three, those with the fewest votes shall be eliminated, others being added from the districts having less than three, until equality be reached.  Of those added, those having the most votes shall be chosen first.

    d.  Formulate rules for the nomination in these conventions of candidates for President and Vice Presidents when the offices are to fall vacant, candidates for nomination to be recognized when petitions shall have been presented by one hundred or more delegates, pledged to continue support until candidates can no longer win or until they consent to withdraw.  Presidents and Vice Presidents, together with Representatives-at-large, shall submit to referendum after serving for three years, and if they are rejected, new conventions shall be held within one month and candidates shall be chosen as for vacant offices.

Expenditures shall be audited by the Watchkeeper; and sums not expended within four years shall be returned to the Treasury.

It shall be a condition of every communications franchise that reasonable facilities shall be available for allocations by the Overseer.

[H: Is anyone nervous about WHO this "Overseer" might be?  How about the "Watchkeeper"--and, how about that "President" but those plural "Vice-Presidents"? Sounds like to me you are moving right into the pit with the viper himself--maybe the Overseer is the "right hand of Satan" and the "Watchkeeper" the left"?]


Article III.  The ELectoral Branch

S. 1.  This is something new, for greater control over the people.

S. 2.  Here comes the "Overseer"!

S. 3.  Note, "Recognitions by the Overseer"!

S. 5.  More "Overseer" stuff...not over-looking the "Planning Branch"!

S. 11.  "Expenses of the Electoral Branch" to be met by an added 1% to the net taxable income of taxpayers... for disposition by the OVERSEER.  WHAT IS A POLICE STATE?

* * *

H: Secretary, enough; I see that you are exhausted as we put in these dawn to dark days without letup--but chela--it is such a critical time for your nation and your freedom as citizens that I cannot bear not to offer that which we can.  Hopefully, these past new editions of CONTACT  [Volume 1, Numbers 1,2 and 3]  can be presented at the Las Vegas meeting next week-end.  We MUST reach the people or there is not hope.

Hayek: "I do not think the cause of liberty will prevail unless our emotions are aroused.  But, though the strong instincts on which the struggle for liberty has always nourished itself are an, indispensable support, they are neither a safe guide nor a certain protection against error.  The same noble sentiments have been mobilized in the service of greatly perverted aims.  Still more important, the arguments that have undermined liberty belong mainly to the intellectual sphere, and we must therefore counter them there.

Ceres to lay down the pen that you might digest these writings as we move along.  Good day.    [p. 34]
