Yes it is lengthy and detailed, and yes it is imperfect, but this is my vision for the foundation of law and governance for a new nation. I freely offer this constitution in whole, or in part, to anyone who can make use of it. Credit would be nice, royalties would be great, but mostly I hope that it is useful to others. If this constitiution is eventually used in the formation of a nation, and I am not currently in residence there, please invite me!July 13, 2010 at 7:12 am #10736
Hey Grey Raven very nice, I dont mean to put you out or anything, but would you be able to show me what a Constitutionaly controlled Direct Democracy’s Constitution could look like?
