AMERICA IN 1787, A DEMOCRACY FOR ITS TIME; HOWEVER, OUR FOREFATHERS PROVIDED FOR CHANGE TODAY, AND WE DARE NOT FAIL THEM! THIS IS A NEW AMERICAN DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE!

Our Constitution was written in 1787; consider the American electronic technology in 1787! If today’s electronic technology were available in 1787, our forefathers would have acted quite differently.

Our Constitutional forefathers wanted a democracy; they did the best they could for 1887; there was no digital electronic technology, instead, there was slavery, Indians, suspicion, and a frontier.

However, our Constitutional forefathers wrote: U.S. Constitution, Article V: “The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislature of two-thirds of the several States, shall call a convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislature of three-fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three-fourths thereof, as one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided no other Amendment which may be made prior to the Year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth section of the First Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.”

Article V of the Constitution should be interpreted in the context of the time, 1787; that obviously does not constitute a problem for modernizing and democratizing the U.S. Constitution.

Prior to our U.S. Constitution, America had been a confederation of States. The U.S. Constitution is a compromise of the confederation and a united America, and Article V makes is possible for the United States of America to become a United People of America, instead. We must decide today if we are a united people, or a union of independent States.

The division of America today, is to a large extent a division of States into Red and Blue, North and South, and segregated and integrated. It is time that America decided whether or not it is a united People or a disingenuous People divided by U.S. Constitution and happenstance.

Today, there is a certain segment of American People, who quite openly confess their believe that America was never intended to be, nor should it be, a democracy; this concept defies the history of America and American forefathers who perceived America as a democracy in progress, with provision for Amendment to grow into a more pure united democratic State as time and technology would allow’

Today, Americans have a choice and an obligation; today all American must agree, America is divided more than it was in 1787 and more than during the Civil War Era. And now is the time to decide whether or not America shall be a united People, a loose confederation of independent States, or a nation governed by an elite of wealthy few, divided into peasants and plutocratic lords. America is on the brink.

Today, America is blessed or cursed with electronic technology to provide for a more pure democracy, with every citizen having a voice and a vote on every important issue that this united People face, be it war or peace, free trade or protected national economy, or whether or not to provide for the general welfare of the People; because electronically, each and every citizen could possibly participate in a national referendum.

The United States of America has developed a technology of the Twenty-First Century and the People of these United States of America are living with an Eighteenth Century Constitution that provided the People with Amendment to progress and we haven’t used it.

The People of America, for whatever reason, have failed to live in the now!

Consider our American history; what has American learned from it? Can the People of America be so blind as to believe that we the People have made no mistakes? For it is we the People who are responsible for the behavior of the United States of America; for our government is “of the People, by the People, and for the People”. We the People are responsible for our government whether or not we personally voted for it.

Can the People of America continue to engage in wars against those who are not a tangible threat to our nation but instead we provide them with a cause to attack us? Can the People of America continue to allow our Supreme Court of Justice provide the corporate wealth of America the Right to purchase favor from our Government, to purchase our legislature, to buy elections?

We Americans are living in the Eighteenth Century, with an Eighteenth Century Constitution that our forefathers never intended us to do and for that reason, provided us with Article V of their original Constitution allowing us amendments.

Today, America has the power and the opportunity with our electronic technology to provide an electronic record of every citizens of the United States from birth to death; and with that devise, provide every citizen the Right and opportunity to vote, provide every citizen the Right to employment in America and the wherewithal to deny non-citizens employment, and with a Federal electronic system and means for voting, provide every citizen of the United States of America the right to have a voice on every important national issue, war or peace, engagement in a world economy or provide a protected American economy, and provide for fair and equitable taxation and representation.

America today, has the technology to provide for this kind of national referendum.

Such an America would be a Twenty-First Century America! It is possible! And, it is possible to do and protect American fraternity, equality, and liberty.

This is a new Twenty-First Century American Declaration of Independence! If you approve or disagree, debate it, consider it, and please pass it on to posterity, your representatives in government, and make something happen!

God Bless America! Unite and make our People free!
