Fair Access Constitutional Amendment

Fair Access Constitutional Amendment

Our Politicians Are Not Paying Attention

It is our responsibility to light a fire under the rear ends of our politicians and if we don’t step up to the plate now, we will live to regret our inaction. This is why we are proposing the Fair Access Amendment.

No politician who does not support it should get another vote. We ask for the support of our like minded friends who care about what is happening to our nation. If our politicians fail to support and pass the Fair Access Amendment then the people will have no choice but to secede one State at a time and form a nation of Free States.

Fair Access Constitutional Amendment

Section One: All members of the Senate shall serve from an office within the State they were elected to. The number of Senators will change from 2 per State to 9 per State as follows. There will be tree slates of three Senators. Each slate of Senators will serve for the Constitutionally authorized 6 years as they do now. Each slate shall be comprised of the 3 highest vote getters, regardless of political party affiliation or lack thereof. Each voter can choose their 3 favorite candidates so that voters can impact the Senate every two years.

There shall not be term limits as the voters have the right to decide who comes and who goes. It will be easy for voters to meet at the State level with their Senators. It will be difficult for Lobbyists to cover the 150 Senate Slates in all 50 States so the balance of influence will transfer from the lobbyists to the people.

Section Two: All members of the House of Representatives shall continue to serve the same two-year periods they now serve. However, they shall serve in slates of 3 and the number of slates shall be one slate per 300,000 in population or portion thereof. Example, if a States has 300,001 in population, then the State shall have 2 slates. Population shall be composed of lawful

Our Bill of Rights

Our Bill of Rights

“Is a bill of rights essential to liberty?” asked founding father James Madison in the debate over ratifying the Constitution of the United States of America.   

The question arose as part of the on-going discussion of the nature of democracy, carried on in ancient Greece, continued through the centuries, and central to the foundation of our government. The absence of a bill of rights almost squelched the proposed Constitution, which was ratified in 1787.   

The question of rights persisted as the new system of government became operational, and within a few years the Bill of Rights became law via amendments to the Constitution. Whereas the Constitution reserves or delegates powers within government, these ten amendments limit the powers of government and define rights of people.  

The First Amendment says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”   

By adoption in 1791, this and the other nine amendments in the Bill of Rights became part of the Constitution, the supreme law of the land.   

Both national and state constitutions recognize the importance of freedoms and rights of individuals in a democratic republic. A federal system of government divides sovereignty between national and state, and aboriginal, governments; and, it limits, delegates, and disperses powers among branches as well as levels of government. But people, not government, provide the popular basis of political authority in a democracy.  

The First Amendment, for example, specifies some of the key freedoms that enable people to participate in a democracy – in a political system of, by, and for the people.  

The Amendment also covers many topics relevant to life today, including separation of church

US Constitution

US Constitution

The United States Constitution is the supreme law of the land. It is a carefully thought out document. Inspired men, who were raised up for this very purpose, were able to come together at The Constitutional Convention and write the document.

Because it is such a well written document, many people consider the constitution to be sacred. Unlike many countries constitutions, the US Constitution cannot be changed easily. It requires a two thirds majority in the house and the senate or to be ratified by three fourths of the states through constitutional convention. The constitution can only be amended. The original document cannot be changed. The purpose of which is to preserve the document and the rights of the citizens.

The Purpose of the Constitution

The purpose of the constitution is to preserve liberty for the people. Many governments, over the years, have severely abused their power. The US Constitution gives a person the right to free speech, to bear arms, against unreasonable search and seizure, against unlawful detainer, the right to vote, and the right to representation by someone elected. Through the ten amendments people also have the right to privacy, the right to a speedy trial and a trial by jury. There are also other rights not mentioned here.

Getting it Right

It took a while to get the constitution right. The first constitution was called The Articles of Confederation. It got some inspiration from a much older document called the Magna Carta. James Madison, the father of the constitution, wrote lengthy articles in favor of the constitution to encourage the states to ratify it. These documents are called The Federalist Papers. They were also written by John Jay and Alexander Hamilton.

Many of the founding fathers were attorneys. In fact, some had graduated from Yale and Harvard. Others were merchants and tradesmen and there was one farmer.

Jay Sekulow insist on Religious and Constitutional Freedom

Jay Sekulow insist on Religious and Constitutional Freedom

Religion plays an important role in drafting history of a Country and about its people. Be it due to fear or respect, people tend to follow rules & guidelines set by a religion and in times of adversity, they offer prayers to set things right. Thus, right to speech and preach your religion is one of the important rights offered to the citizens of any country. Jay Sekulow, the defender and follower of such rights is a noble and humble person who has devoted his life in the service of humankind.

According to Mr. Sekulow and American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) – “Sept. 11, 2001 will be remembered in history not only as a horrible act of terrorism on the lands of United States, but also a time when Americans sacrificed their lives for others, a time when they stood together, unified and resilient.” To prove it true, every year thousands of people assemble at Ground zero to offer prayers in order to bring comfort and solace to humanity as a whole. It is natural that if something good or bad happens in any part of the world, it surely affects the rest of the world.

Mr. Sekulow has argued many cases in respect to religious liberty and constitutional freedom. The most significant case he handled in Supreme Court was that of few students who want to have a Bible club in high school. He defended their case successfully that resulted in winning the permission to form a club.

The growing phenomenon of critical issues involving life and religious freedom that was prevailing in Europe can have adverse effects on US constitution also. Thus to safeguard the interest of the people at both the locations, Mr. Sekulow and ACLJ set their office in France as European Court of Human Rights, so as to handle the cases related to people of Europe there and then without mixing them with the cases of US.
