1. The House of Representatives shall be disbanded and prohibited.
2. The Senate shall be disbanded, and reconstituted, consisting of the sitting governors of the states – one from each.

4. If elected, those governors may only be elected by citizens of fourth generation or more, possessed of residential property, and free of crime of predation.
5. New States may be admitted by the
Congress into this Union; but no new States shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.
5. The Senate may construct:
1. Voluntary Contracts: Between Signatory States. All Voluntary Contracts shall consist of a contract between the signatory states on behalf of the citizenry.
2. Legislative Contracts: Between All States. All Legislative contracts shall consist of a contract between all the states on behalf of the citizenry.
The Senate may construct legislative contracts, and voluntary contracts, but make no law. The making of Legislative Law is reserved for the states, and the Making of law reserved for the discovery of Findings of Law by the Court.
Regulations shall be submitted to the Senate as a Request for Voluntary Contract or Request for Legislative Contract.
1. All voluntary contracts between states shall ascend upon signature of the governors of the consenting states.
(Counsel: States can conduct negotiations and construct agreements that are enforceable by the Court.)

3. All Legislative Contracts shall require survival of veto by the Supreme Court on terms of constitutionality, although the court may choose or not choose to comment or advise, and the courts action to veto or not carry no weight on future findings of law by the court.
Whereas the people are prone to follies which time does not forgive;
If Monarchy exists under the constitution then the Monarchy may veto on any grounds no matter how arbitrary, at any time after passage, in defense of the polity from the fashions and follies of the day.
8. All Contracts between the States whether Voluntary or Legislation shall be limited to matters of trade, taxation, insurance, and defense, and may not address etiquette, manners, behavior, norm, custom, tradition, education, or function of the member states, as all such rights are reserved for the states and states alone.

Any attempt to organize the Senate for the purpose of any objective than purely empirical production of voluntary and involuntary contracts of legislation on matters limited by this constitution shall be an act of treason and punishable by death.
(Counsel: the matter of political orders is settled. The only opposition to voluntary reciprocal exchange is the justification of free riding, parasitism, and predation upon one group by another group. Therefore the only possible means of obtaining a desired end is not to argue for a fictional good at the expense of others, but to produce a trade that is mutually beneficial and voluntarily chosen. )
16. Any advocacy, or attempt, to circumvent the original intent, and spirit of this constitution shall constitute an act of treason punishable by death.

Except for long distance and high voltage lines, all suburban, urban lines shall be underground.
Regarding Public Services.
The tendency of monopoly bureaucracy is self interest, limited effort, the illusion of self import, due to insulation from competition, and ever increasing accumulation of rents, all at the expense of the people;
1. All public services shall be delegated to private contractors, such that bureaucracies are eliminated, and the ‘favor economy’ of bureaucrats and politicians is deprived of opportunity.
2. All public services shall remain open for business from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM, so that the public need not refrain from working in order to obtain services or comply with regulations.
3. All public services shall staff such that the maximum waiting time for any resident or citizen is twenty minutes. All individuals appearing and waiting for service must be clean, dressed appropriately, quiet, still, and if ill, wearing face and hand coverings.
4. All public service employees shall be accountable for the truthfulness of their speech and the right of the people to compel truthful speech shall not be infringed. Right of accurate speech shall not be infringed, and the people compensated for any inaccurate speech.
5. Personal transportation taxes and fees shall be terminated and the people’s freedom from imposition of costs upon their transportation shall be ended.
