View Full Version : Liberty Platform Model Legislation

12-20-2010, 10:38 AM
A model for implementing the popular liberty movement into State and Federal legislation via the State House:

NC Electoral Freedom Act, An Act enabling open Ballots in North Carolina, and the freedom of the people to elect whom they please.

NC Farmer's Freedom Protection Act, An Act defining the jurisdiction of State and Federal food, farm, production, and farmers markets contained within the State of North Carolina as being under sole State jurisdiction per the 10th Amendment to the US Constitution.

NC Firearms Freedom Act, An Act defining the jurisdiction of State and Federal Firearms Laws, and specifying Firearms, Ammunition, and accessories made and retained within the State of North Carolina as being under sole State jurisdiction.

NC Ninth Amendment Popular Retention Act, An Act defining the rights retained by the people, according to the 9th Amendment to the United States Constitution.

North Carolina Open Caucus Act, An Act enabling open popular caucuses of the electorate on any popular issue, (Freedom of Expression Act)

NC Definition of Powers Act, An Act defining the powers of State Government according to single sovereignty, (Powers of the State government against the people)

NC Open Community Based Redistricting Act. An Act drawing local communities into common caucuses, and enabling them to draw their own voting districts.

I am thinking to file them in reverse order, and introduce them in forward-order, but writing them all by January 26th is an insurmountable task.

In a perfect world, with a full staff, I would file Redistricting Act on Day 1, then Day 2 Definition of Powers, Day 3 Open Caucus, 2nd Week: 9th A, FFA, 3rd Week: FFPA, Electoral Freedom Act.

Then introduce them in backwards order in the House, starting with Electoral Freedom. One intro every 3 weeks, finishing with Community Based Redistricting Amendment.

"A popular caucus shall be raised amongst the electorate to accomplish redistricting, where each community gets to decide who to vote with." Caucus activist voters of any party during elections to network with neighborhoods and towns and cities and negotiate on a local level to achieve District boundaries. Grassroots redistricting.

Grassroots board shall have a redistricting plan in place by 2012 for a ballot referendum. State Legislature either agrees with, or disputes the popular vote. If 3/4 agree, new popular-community based voting districts are executed during 2013 in time for the 2014 election.

We will need to caucus precincts during 2011, and we won't have to wait 10 years.

Is it possible for the people of a State to draw their own districts?

Concept: get 100 people to draw district maps and then merge them digitally. Bring the community out to draw themselves together or apart. District delegates at large? Maybe three delegates each, one for each primary party plus one (U)nspoken.

Seriously, what would happen if you 'averaged' 100 district maps, and then adjusted to even population, what would that look like? The result is that the people would district themselves, according to precinct. We can't do it by 2011, but we can do it.
