RIGHTS and FREEDOMS
PART. I. RIGHTS and RESPONSIBILITIES
Section. 9. Equal rights regardless of gender:
Although equality is affirmed by our Declaration of Independence, our current Constitution fails to grant equal rights to women. Ratifying The Valentine Constitution will finally guarantee this fundamental right.
… equal pay for equal work:
This provision, supported by 95% of Americans, explicitly codifies yet another right not protected by our current Constitution. Women and other Citizens are being cheated, as individuals and groups, because our laws fail to force businesses to do the right thing. The Valentine Constitution establishes equal pay for equal work for all Citizens.
Section. 11. … trafficking and “breeder” industries:
The Valentine Constitution prohibits abuse, rape, pimping, prostitution and human trafficking, as well as pornography and bloody violence allowed as “art” under our current Constitution. Free speech was never intended to protect industries staging and filming sex and violence, creating human “product” for pimps and traffickers, and breeding Johns and rapists. Stunted, desperate men will no longer be allowed to pay someone else’s daughter, or the pimp trafficking her, for sexual acts for their perverse gratification. Traffickers, pimps, customers, groomers and molesters will be pursued both here and abroad.
Section. 10. … harassment, stalking, catcalling, unsolicited contact:
Not prohibited by our current constitution, these privacy invasions rob victims of life and liberty, hindering them from becoming happy, productive members of our society, feeding hatred and emboldening anger likely to escalate into more injurious crimes like rape and spree killings. K-12 school relationship classes, also for adults nights and weekends; programs to help victims heal and perpetrators stop; enforcement focused more on catching hardened perpetrators and less on shaming and interrogating fragile victims; and boot camp to teach juvenile delinquents and criminals respect, discipline and acceptance.
Section. 8. Every Citizen will have sole power over their own body including suicide and abortion:
Every Citizen has the right of dominion over their own body. From suicide to abortion, the decision lies with the Citizen, not with a hospital making money, or a religion imposing beliefs. No church or state can control the body of a law abiding Citizen in America, and the law won’t change for lack of votes. Anti-abortion candidates, nonprofits and protests have all failed. Take this deal to get religion, prayer, spirituality and morality in schools which prevent unwanted pregnancy by exposing teens to child birth, aborted fetuses, those who’ve kept and aborted, pregnant teen moms and dads, and condoms. The Christian mission is prevention, not condemnation. Christ did not condemn the adulterous woman. He fought to prevent adultery.
SPEAK POWER to POWER
Keeping 90% of our current Constitution, foundations and rights intact, The Valentine Constitution modernizes our unaccountable government to assist rather than restrict citizens.
Women, LGBTs, blacks, anti-tax and anti-deficit groups, environmentalists, 80% of America will get what they want most.
Candidates, nonprofits, foundations, protests and fundraisers have failed for decades to fulfill their missions. If they were going to solve our problems, they would have by now. How much longer will you hope that government or Wall Street or scientists solve your problems when they haven’t yet?
Even if your wish list of candidates were elected, what legislation would they pass? They’re too polarized and stalemated, between and within parties, to pass all the legislation needed to solve our many problems, and how long would it take them? It took Valentine 12,000 hours over 45 years! Unless we dictate play, our problems will never be solved.
Left, right and center voters, nonprofits, causes and celebrities can combine their considerable power to get the word out to dictate to candidates to vote FOR RATIFICATION or not be (re)elected.
The hard work’s been done. All you have to do is say you want it to trigger positive polling and they’ll ratify it to get your vote, then we can finally fix everything.
