§ 000.1: Introduction to the Problems with the Subsisting Charter System
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
John Adams, Letter to the Massachusetts Militia; October 11, 1798
With all due respect to the legends of the founding of the United States and the honorable reverence for the Constitution; it has become necessary to inform the American People of the inadequacies of the Constitution and subsequent state chartering system that lead to the government chaos and social disorderliness that we endure.
The United States Constitution, and subsequent state and municipal charters, are all flawed, because even the best and noblest of statesmen did not have all of the information concerning government organization, nor the textual notation formatting technology, necessary for ordering more reliable charters. Although the subsisting charter system has adequately served the start-up of the Republic it is inadequate for the tremendously more diverse and integrated, and relatively, more sophisticated population that the society has evolved to.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
Contrary to the popular rhetoric, the founders of the United States are not turning in their graves, because of the misuse of the Constitution, but rather, because they are embarrassed by the reverence for the ambiguous and perpetually disputed passages, and tolerance for the erroneous government that it prescribes.

§ 000.12: Problems with the Three-part Model
The founders, and subsequent generations, have only had one simple formula to work with, and it is mistakenly interpreted to formulate separate "branches of government," where as, what it more accurately describes are the three phases for processing law, which would then be the subdivisions of the proper branches.

§ 000.13: Problems in Civics
Once the civics lesson gets past the heroics of the founding era, the lessons are complicated with incomplete stories of corruptions and adjustments to the system that was never formulated with the consistency that modern sophistication expects of a "system."
§ 000.14: Problems in the Electoral System
The mere fact that the Constitution(s) allow the legislatures to make their own rules is clearly a violation of modern sophisticated understanding of what a constitution is suppose to secure for the people - procedure rules. This is a very surprising aspect of presidential impeachment trials, where it appears that the Senate can make rules prohibiting witnesses, and varying rules during the process of the trial.
§ 000.15: Problems in Trust
The American governing system is not going to break-down in an obvious fashion of romantic scenes of starving rebels rioting at the gates. The standard of living is relatively comfortable, the government is "too big to fail," and the irregularities of corruption and partisan theatrics are considered business as usual, and disregarded as the next day brings about a new headline to distract the concerned citizen.
§ 000.16: Problems in Documentation
Casual review of any of the contemporary charters that comprise the three-level government system will reveal that the charters are inconsistently formulated, lack reliable procedure rules, and then contain rambling passages that consequently explain why other nations cannot replicate the governing system that we "know and trust," why non-white people remain intimidated by "the system," and illustrates how our sophist legal practitioners and corporate entities exploit the ambiguous terms and obscure inadequacies.
Please, accept this request for a constitutional convention that gathers the diversity of people that the previous generations could not gather to reorder the entire chartering system in a deliberate and measured effort to accommodate the better municipal, state, and national deliberations concerning foreign and domestic policy, government corruption, civil rights, and the various dimensions of social stratification, that otherwise left unattended will undoubtedly lead to another civil war.
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
