                      Introduction:

                      A citizen compact is a signature contractual document whereby sovereign individuals bind themselves together to form a covenant form of government for the mutual protection of fundamental rights. What follows is a suggested national compact. Similar types of compacts would also be appropriate at the state level and in any community that wishes to establish covenants and restrictions above the level of basic law. State or community compacts would be able to build upon the national pact, but could not contain any elements that contradict the national compact. At the national level, the compact is as basic as possible to defend fundamental rights, leaving to other state or community compacts to establish more restrictive covenants consistent with the philosophical, religious or ideological background of those joining together to form each state or subgroup. The national compact is fundamentally more important than a constitution because it:

                      1. Declares both a working definition of the fundamental rights and contains a listing of those rights, none of which should ever be subject to a vote. Fundamental rights cannot be abrogated or diminished by any constitution or law.

                      2. Establishes the core principles of law and government, agreed upon by all, upon which the constitution must be based.

                      3. It itemizes the contractual obligations of citizenship, including self-imposed limitations on fundamental rights and personal sovereignty that are never appropriate to impose by majority rule: e.g.: Loyalty oath to the principles of law; financial support of proper government functions, Voting; mandatory participation in national defense; very limited eminent domain takings of property; and minimal standards of public conduct [i.e.: basic limits on lewd conduct and nudity, public endangerment, interference with other’s access to public property, etc.].

                      4. Limits entry to those who qualify for citizenship, e.g.: age, financial responsibility, basic knowledge of rights and the law, moderate competency in language, moral character, and commitment to defend fundamental rights.

                      5. Delineates and grants protection to the full range of individual rights only to those entering into the covenant (including the privileges of holding government office, voting at all levels of government, and the protection of titled property). All other privileges, excepting those granted exclusively to citizens are protected for non-citizen residents, who also have responsibilities commensurate with their level of commitment to this system of liberty.

                      The key advantages of a covenant form of citizenship with responsibilities attached is that 1) it complies with the principle requiring initial unanimous consent of the governed to form a government, 2) it uses voluntary assent to determine any limitations on fundamental rights rather than majority rule, 3) it provides incentives and inducements for outsiders who want the benefits of citizenship to learn the principles of law that maintain liberty, thus helping avoid division of society into factions, 4) it restricts opportunities for leadership and ownership to those willing to commit to protect these rights.


                      Citizen Compact

                      OBLIGATIONS OF NON-CITIZENS (Residents and Visitors)

                      Other contractual provisions should be made to accommodate non-citizen residents, and visitors. Within the territorial limits claimed and defended by the Citizens under compact, who are owners of the underlying property, no other persons are allowed to live, visit or enter without agreeing to the rules and limitations established for either visitors or residents. This also applies to those who bring into the nation foreign persons under contract. Such contracts must include an agreement to abide by the above visitor or resident code of conduct and contain guarantees by the citizen making the contract that he will take complete responsibility for any harm or damages committed by the contracting party. This responsibility provision provides a high incentive to not bring in untrustworthy individuals. An exception to these rules of conduct for non-citizens must be made for landowners (inholders) who had established property and residency prior to the establishment of the new covenant government, and who decline to join the new compact. These would be left alone, but treated as foreign entities, with no right of access, entry, or protection except as provided in contractual relationship with other citizens and residents.

                      PRINCIPLES OF JUST LAW AND GOVERNMENT

                       

                      ·         PRINCIPLE #1  INDIVIDUAL SOVEREIGNTY:  All persons are rightfully sovereign over their own affairs which do not infringe upon the rights of others.

                       

                      ·         PRINCIPLE #2  FAMILY SOVEREIGNTY:  Families, composed of a man and a women and their natural or legally adopted children,  shall be sovereign over all family affairs which affect the health, welfare and education of their dependent children as long as such actions do not present an imminent, physical threat to the life of the children, either by overt acts of abuse or gross negligence.

                       

                      ·         PRINCIPLE #3:  FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS: Fundamental rights are those rights which all persons can simultaneously claim without forcing other people to serve their needs.  These rights are superior to all earthly law and should be never be made subject to majority rule. 

                       

                      ·         PRINCIPLE #4  GOVERNMENT BY THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED:  A government  may only be formed by the unanimous consent of those to be governed by such, and the individual assent of all others joining at a later time.

                       

                      ·         PRINCIPLE #5  LIMITS OF GOVERNMENT POWER: The main purpose of a just government is to provide for mutual defense of the fundamental rights of all citizens and to provide an equitable system of allocation, regulation and resolution of conflict concerning unowned commons (air, rivers, oceans, space, and liquid underground resources transcending multiple surface boundaries).   All officers of government should take an oath to defend those rights and have no immunity from the penalties of law if they violate others’ rights through the pretense of law. Governments must be specifically enjoined from the following common violations of fundamental rights:

                      1.       Providing any specific benefit to any person or group, without a user fee or voluntary donation by others covering the entire cost.

                      2.       Protecting people involuntarily from natural disaster, safety hazards, risk taking or any other difficulty not constituting a threat to fundamental rights.

                      3.       Prosecution or making any act a crime in the absence of a specific complaint by a victim, except in cases involving imminent threat to life.

                      4.       Making an act or possession of a substance a crime which does not present a direct or imminent threat to rights or declaring any act a crime after the fact.

                       

                       

                      ·         PRINCIPLE #6   RIGHT OF REVOLUTION:   Whenever a government or its officers engage in egregious violations of fundamental rights and use the power of government to shield themselves from prosecution or reform, and when all lawful avenues of reform and appeal have been exhausted, it is the right of the sovereign citizens to rise up in armed revolution against those officers, to remove them from power and make necessary structural changes to government in order to reestablish the protection of fundamental rights. 

                       

                      ·         PRINCIPLE #7  CITIZENSHIP BY QUALIFICATION:  Citizenship should be by covenant and qualification rather than by birth, whereby the fundamental rights of citizens, and the duties and responsibilities of both parties (government and citizen) are clearly specified and agreed upon.

                       

                      ·         PRINCIPLE #8  EQUAL JUSTICE UNDER LAW:   Equal justice (not results) shall be guaranteed for all citizens under constitutional law that provides a uniform standard of due process in all legal processes of government.  Punishment for infractions of law should be uniformly applied to all offenses of similar threat to fundamental rights. Punishments should be fair, proportional to the offense, provide deterrence, provide restitution to victims by the perpetrators, and remove permanently from society chronic offenders who refuse to control their predation upon others. All prosecution of criminal acts should be tried before a judge and citizen jury, trained in the applicable law, where the judge is responsible to ensure that the rights of all parties are protected and that the jury has the power to judge the facts of the case, the applicability of the law to the particular case, and the appropriate punishment.  Access to a jury trial should be an absolute right for all criminal cases and an absolute option for civil cases, where the parties to the case are willing to accept their share of appropriate user fees.

                       

                      ·         PRINCIPLE #9  GOVERNMENT FUNDING:  The type of taxation employed should be directly levied upon the persons or properties protected by government services. There must be no taxation without representation and no form of taxation voted upon with majoritarian powers should be valid unless applied to all citizens and residents within the same taxing jurisdiction.  Government should be financed by general taxes only for universal services that are directly related to the defense of fundamental rights and that render no specific benefit to an individual or group constituting less than the whole. User fees should be employed to cover all costs, and only those costs, for any direct government services or benefits to individuals, groups, and such user fees should be applied to those same services, which produce the fee. Taxation should never be allowed on income, inheritance or gifts.  Neither should taxes be hidden within an economic price, interfere with or distort economic processes, or force any person to pay a higher proportion of taxes when no higher protection is required from government services. No state should be allowed to incur a budget deficit and no deficit should be allowed at the national level except in time of declared war.  All government liabilities and expenditures should be included in the budget and no tax burden should be shifted to the next generation of taxpayers through debt or unfunded programs mandated by law.

                       

                      ·         PRINCIPLE #10  LIMITS ON POLICE POWER:   Military and police power of government should only be used where there exists a direct or imminent threat to the fundamental rights of its citizens, and to enforce laws which are constitutional and based upon those rights.  Any assistance for liberty given to foreign nations  or entities where a significant threat to this nation cannot be demonstrated should be encouraged by government but carried out by voluntary measures. Citizens should be secure in their privacy from government search, intrusion, surveillance, and seizure except when credible evidence exists of a crime against fundamental rights or an imminent threat to liberty. Government power to enforce secrecy should not be applied to the specific knowledge any person may have concerning crimes committed by government officials or persons favored by those officials. Officers of government should not have immunity from acts committed by themselves or by others under their knowing supervision that violate the fundamental rights of others.  

                       

                      ·         PRINCIPLE #11  ARMS FOR SELF-DEFENSE: All citizens should be free to own and possess the means of effective personal protection and to use appropriate force to protect life and property from harm regardless of whether or not police forces are immediately available or willing to help. Citizens acting in self-defense of fundamental rights should use only the force necessary to eliminate the perceived threat.  An armed citizenry also acts as the ultimate force against potential government tyranny and aggression against the fundamental rights of man.

                       

                      ·         PRINCIPLE #12   FREELY COMPETING, NON-COERCIVE VALUES: All non-coercive values should be free to compete for adherents in both private and public domains, with government serving only in its role of maintaining public order.  Government should never use general revenues or its lawmaking power to establish or promote any system of belief except that which directly protects fundamental rights or which is agreed upon by all participants in a citizen compact covering “community standards” of public conduct.  Officials should not be restricted, however, from making statements of personal belief, including religious references to a duty to God or a belief in a Supreme Being, or praying publicly to God, as long as such pronouncements are stated as their own personal beliefs or feelings, represent part of his or her leadership role to constituents, and do not require mandatory acceptance by others.

                       

                       

                      RESPONSIBILITIES

                      In addition, I agree to

                       

                      Pay an annual Citizen head tax, and all defense taxes pertaining to property I own. 

                      Vote in all national elections unless incapacitated.

                      Complete 6 months military training (by private or public means meeting uniform standards set by the national government)

                      Serve, if called, a minimum of two years active duty with pay during a declared war by Congress where there is a direct threat to the liberty of this nation.   

                      Abide by eminent domain takings of my property with compensation at the rate of 1.5 times the fair-market value as determined by average of three independent and fair appraisals. Eminent domain takings shall be limited to major highways; transportation, communication, and utility corridors; and military and police facilities in critical geographical locations, where no other viable, economical alternative is available, and where the burden of proof is on government to demonstrate no viable alternative.

                       

                      Limit my personal acquisitions of arms to exclude weapons of mass destruction capable of killing or maiming large numbers of people (100 or more) simultaneously.

                       

                      Further I agree that I will automatically lose my citizenship upon conviction of the following:

                      ·         Conviction of unjustified Murder (loss of citizenship is permanent)

                      ·         Convicted of a violent crime, causing permanent injury to another, or any total of 3 other felony criminal actions. (Can only become a Resident thereafter after paying full restitution to victims).

                      ·         Conviction of Treason (permanent loss of Citizens, and/or exile)

                      ·         Thrice failing to maintain an active vote, without excuse (can recover citizenship after 3 years)

                      ·         Failing to pay lawful tax, or work off such taxes two years in arrears (can recover citizenship upon full payment)

                      ·         10 violations of failure to abide by the citizen standards of public conduct.
