ARTICLE.  VI.

Our ECONOMY

PART.  V.     A  FAIR  INTERNET  MARKETPLACE

Section.  1.   All entertainment, art, publications, content, broadcast and cable programing will be delivered via the internet; copyright owners will be compensated by royalties per minute of usage paid by consumers with unlimited access to content at current usage fees:

The Valentine Constitution makes the internet an old school public utility, and removes the monopolies, middlemen and gatekeepers who now charge access to airwaves we own, over an internet our government created, on “plants” we paid for in fees on our bills for years. Cantidates got campaign funding and we got cheated out of our free market and capitalism.

Costs will be reduced with one delivery system kept fresh and secure by handsomely compensating innovators. Gone will be the costs and interruptions of middlemen, advertisements, the ad portion of product prices, and most fees. Citizens will buy and sell their goods and services at no charge other than the 5% transaction tax (our only tax). Content creators will be paid royalties (the way the music industry has for decades) out of the monthly usage fees we pay now, which would cover what content creators now make, without having to pay middleman fees or advertising. Cheap, freely accessible content will neutralize intellectual piracy. Release control will keep movie theater type roll outs viable.

Ad-free search and filters take Citizens where they want.

Our government will register copyrights, trademarks

and patents and provide expertise.

Section.  2.   Our government will register copyrights, trademarks and patents on behalf of the submitter and provide guidance and advice:

Unhelpful, unduly complicated copyright, patent, TM and other registration and compliance systems impede creatives, artists, inventors and businesses from producing innovative products which stimulate economic growth, productivity and exports. The Valentine Constitution’s helpful government instead advises and expedites compliance, registration…

Today our monopoly-gatekeeper-middleman internet marketplace forces, say song creators, to pay a fee to an “aggregator” plus 10% to 30% of what’s left after paying Amazon and iTunes 70% of the sale after PayPal takes it’s cut! Any American selling, buying or searching is forced to pay middlemen and transaction fees, suffer advertisers, and input redundant private data to access their own economy! Monopoly gatekeepers prevent exciting new product, services and acts from reaching the marketplace sidelining independent creatives and the small businesses who provide 80% of our jobs. Search now takes us to their paying customers, not to our search. Under The Valentine Constitution ads and info sharing are all opt-IN and all fees and costs are covered by current usage fees and the 5% tax, our only tax. Sales, ratings, reviews and search are streamlined, and common sense filters allow buyers, sellers, workers, employers and hobbyists to find each other. The cream can then rise to the top in a piracy-free, direct-to-market internet economy.

SPEAK POWER to POWER

Nonprofits, protests, parties, candidates, Presidents with 2 house majorities, none have solved our persistent problems. Instead, polarized sides concern themselves and us in the petty details of their competing investigations. Valentine puts the solutions we need into written legislation we can demand by reserving our votes for candidates who support ratification.

Women and LGBTs want equal rights and pay. Parents want schools that develop children’s gifts into profitable skills. Un(der)employed adults want similar free after school classes. Workers prefer a $20 minimum wage to welfare. Blacks want a fair policing and court system. Fiscal conservatives want accountable, deficit free government and a single 5% tax. Environmentalists, fishermen, etc want sustainable energy, farming, fishing and forestry practices. Celebrities want an end to the paparazzi; and gun owners would agree to background checks. Our current Constitution fails on these issues. This constitution includes them all, and our foundations and rights.

With inclusive legislation to team up behind, this coalition of left and right voters is powerful enough to dictate the outcome of any election. Add sports, music and movie celebrities, and nonprofits dedicated to these provisions, and this constitution will be easily ratified. Polling will force candidates to vote FOR RATIFICATION or not be (re)elected. Recommend ratification, in person, on social media, post a selfie or selfeo saying “Ratify The Valentine Constitution”, join one of our Facebook groups …
