My Fellow Americans
AFTER an unequivocal experience of the inefficacy of the subsisting federal government, you are called upon to deliberate on a new Constitution for the United States of America.
The subject speaks its own importance; comprehending in its consequences nothing less than the existence of the UNION, the safety and welfare of the states of which it is composed, the fate of a nation in many respects the most interesting in the world. It seems to have been reserved to the people of America, by their enduring quest for Justice, to decide the important question, whether free societies are really capable or not of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever shackled to erroneous institutions.
Dear Black Americans
The American legends that have been devised to lead us to believe that true justice is possible cannot be achieved under the direction of the 18th century government model. The exercise of the 1787 federal Constitution successfully lead to the end of slavery in America, and that was about all it was good for. All three levels of government are inherently flawed, have been improperly adjusted, and cannot meet the expectations of the sophisticated diversity that the nation has evolved to. We need to have a constitutional convention that gathers the diversity of people that previous generations could not gather, to reorder the government that was designed in compromise with racist white slave-owners.

Dear White Americans
Contrary to the popular rhetoric, the founders of the United States are not turning in their graves because of "abuses" to the Constitution, but rather, because of the continued exercise of their simple formulation of government. The expansion of the government services departments, and advanced technology, would direct the founders towards a more sophisticated design for reliable government. They would certainly not insist that their centuries-old system was peerless; and they would be quick to suggest that the complaint that, "they are not following the Constitution," means the checks and balances do not work, because that is what the checks and balances are supposed to prevent.

We need a new Constitution for each and every state, and everyone is invited to participate. Nobody is to be denied an opportunity to submit their ideas for review.
What do you have to offer?
