A New Constitution for The United States of America
We, the people of the United States, in order to protect the rights of individual citizens, promote the enduring federation of existing states, territories, and districts, establish standards of justice, provide for the common defense, and secure the blessings of liberty for ourselves and our posterity, do establish this new constitution for the United States of America, a federal republic of limited powers that serves with and by the consent of the governed.
We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all persons are entitled at birth to be treated equally by government and are possessed of certain inalienable human rights; that among these are life, liberty, privacy, dignity, and the pursuit of happiness; and that the proper function of government is to recognize, protect, defend, and preserve these rights.
The federal government of the United States of America shall consist of three co-equal branches as set forth below, each of which shall fully respect and show due deference to the others, and each shall as a first duty protect the person and the individual rights of every citizen, without presuming to substitute the judgement of officials for the right of each person to self determination. The federal government shall be conducted openly by all who serve in it, and every substantial action taken in the name of the United States of America shall be subject to a democratic referendum of the people. In the exercise of the limited powers granted to the government by this constitution or pursuant to it, in any instance that such powers shall conflict with or abrogate the rights of individual citizens, the latter shall prevail.
