The first 90 days of any prison sentence will be boot camp. Boot camp programs for criminals are in use and have been proven to reduce recidivism by a statistic shattering 80%! Criminal boot camp is the first ever program to significantly reduce recidivism. The Valentine Constitution requires convicted criminals to repay all of the costs of their crimes including incarceration, and requires prisons to be self-sufficient. To reduce or eliminate how much taxpayers lend to prisoners for their prison stays, prisoners will be forced to have jobs, be on time, be responsible and deal with legal economic and work realities. Inmates will be better behaved and even police themselves to reduce the cost of guards needed to keep them in line. Inmates will be forced to get along with those they don’t like. Criminals from rival gangs will be made to share cells, and to work together as in the real world. It all adds up to inmates being better prepared to succeed on the outside.

Valentine put all our issues into one piece of national legislation.
90% of Americans can get what we want most by compromising on issues we care less about.
We can now combine our power behind a single common goal and finally get what we’ve wanted for decades.
The amendments clause of our current constitution allows us to dictate solutions to our politicians and force them to vote on it.
Valentine spent 50,000 hours over 45 years adding solutions to all the modern problems our old Constitution fails to cover while keeping 90%, our foundations and rights intact.
