The Role of Government


                                                 Prologue

Government is naturally born from dispute just as a child comes from a woman
and a man.  The mother of government is dependence, and the father is conflict.
If men were to always agree and always remain equal in self-right, no
government would exist.  As problems are best solved when tended to at the
level most intimate with those conflicted, governmental action should take
place at the lowest possible level.

The role of government is to allow for the unimpeded natural progression of
man to the final disposition of the individual. The government must facilitate
communication between the multitudes of individuals whenever necessary, as
this is the foundation of government; representation.  The government of a
nation must be directly controlled by the individuals which grant power to the
government, as the government is an agreed upon mediator between groups of
individuals.   Government shall allow for this natural progression by defending
against imperial or oppressive persecution that inhibits the individual from
progress.  The government must not allow tyrannical power to deter the natural
progression of the individual.  Government is not to falsely impede or accelerate
the natural progression of man.  Government must not steer any individual or
group of individuals to a set destination in the progress of man. Above all,
individuals must do for themselves.


Section 1: The Levels of Government in Action, Facilitating Communication

Government is meant to resolve an otherwise impassable conflict.  All levels of
government serve the exact same function; the only difference is the target
population on either side of the governmental mediation.  The most influential
level of government in the United States of America must be the State level
governments, as the State is the hub at which all levels of government in the
United States intersect.  Each of the States is its own sovereign entity
cooperating with each other State.  

Each State is further broken down into counties, or similar divisions.  Within
these divisions, there are districts, cities, and communities.  It is within these
local areas where government begins; government does not begin at the federal
level.  Within the local areas, people come together to identify city council
members and mayors.  Within the abilities available at this local level of
government, this is the level at which all issues of individuals are to be
resolved.  For those areas unincorporated by town and cities, their first level of
government must fall at the county level of interaction.  In larger cities and
towns, the individuals who make up the community may find it beneficial to
identify sub-district representation and more localized governmental sub-
divisions, so that they may better articulate their wants, needs, and desires to
a population with which they are incapable of democratic interaction, thereby
utilizing the republican, representative form, government as it is intended.

Communities of individual people come together to live a symbiotic life with
the nature and other individuals in a geographic region.  Government comes into
play when the citizens of a community require interaction with another
community.  As individuals, we each retain the natural right to cooperate, or
not, with any other individual.  

When we join communities, we extend a limited amount of cooperation and
good faith to the community.  When other individuals in other communities
require our assistance to fulfill a want, need, or desire the route they take to
request this aid is government.  There is no need for government without first
the need and inability to communicate.  If an individual requires other
individuals or communities to provide aid to fulfill their wants, needs, or
desires, they must appeal to the community or individual directly.  Government,
is only to be utilized when an individual or group of individuals are incapable of
providing support to the appealing party and the appealing party is incapable of
democratic interaction; therefore resorting to representative forms of
government.  

A clear and common example of required government interaction is for the
access to natural resources.  Access to man made, fabricated, and produced
resources that are producible by a select group of the population may also be a
reason for government in the same way access to natural resources are made.  
For instance: If a community is established downstream on a river, for whatever
reason, from a previously established community, governmental representation
may become necessary to make sure the community upstream does not impede
on the community down stream’s access to the natural resources of the river. In
essence, send a few representatives upstream to let that community know that
it hinders the life of downstream residents if sewage is dumped in the river
upstream.

If possible, the groups of individuals must communicate with each other
without the intervention of government.  If a family is unable to provide
themselves with sustenance, they must first appeal to the individuals within
their community before requesting governmental intervention.  If the family in
need asks a few other families for support, they may find much more efficient
and effective aid than by going first to the government.  This may also improve
upon the motivation for the family in need to hold a greater role in community
support when they are able.  This also eliminates the need for government
intervention; thusly, eliminating impeding on individuals who would otherwise
not be involved with the support of the needy family.  

Individuals within a community must communicate their wants, needs, and
desires to each other if they are unable to accomplish their satisfaction on their
own. The purpose of a city council is to bring the wants needs, and desires of
the cities divisions to the attention of each other.  The city council members
must then decide if their divisions are capable of supporting the requests of the
other divisions. If a council member deems the district they represent capable,
then the council member of that division must present the situation to their
constituents for consideration.  The individuals of the district must decide on
their own if they are willing and able to support the specific wants, needs, or
desires of the division requesting assistance.  If the division chooses to support
the specific wants, needs, or desires of the requesting division, then the
problem is solved and the governmental intervention ceases. Then only the
representatives and individuals of the divisions supplying and receiving aid
maintain this assistive relationship, as to not encumber districts not involved in
the aid.

If no other division of a district is adequately willing or able to support other
divisions within the district, then the request for support is brought up to the
city council.  The council member assigned as the representative for the district
where the divisions cannot resolve the wants, needs, or desires of its
individuals may bring it to the other city council members representing the other
city districts.  These district representatives then pass the request up to their
division representatives, who in turn present the situation to the individuals
who live in the districts.  Once these individuals democratically come to a
decision about the request, they pass the response to the individuals whom
originated the request by way of the division representatives, to district
representatives on the city council, and back up to the original requesting
individuals through their identified representatives.  

If the people of the districts decide that they can come together and support
the request, then the mayor of the city will formalize whatever agreement the
communities make between the districts and enact it into enforceable law. This
is so that the groups of individuals uphold the agreement, which they have
entered themselves into, to each other by penalty of law.

If the districts within a city cannot support the original request, the mayor of
that city may then present the request to the other mayors in the county, or
whatever similar sub-state level breakdown is applicable to this level of
government. Those mayors may then present the request to their constituents
by way of district and division councils.  The citizens’ pass their responses to
the requests to the originating party in the same manner; down through division
and district councils, to the mayors, through district and divisional councils, to
individual citizens. (Essentially, this process repeats going lower down the
governmental chain until it reaches the federal government.)

If the people of the cities within the county decide that they can come together
and support the request, then the county seat will formalize whatever
agreement the individuals in the cities make between each other and enact it
into enforceable law. This is so that the groups of individuals uphold the
agreement, which they have entered themselves into, to each other by penalty
of law.

At this point, if the people of a county cannot come together to provide, willing
and able, for a community’s needs, wants, or desires then the community must
attempt an alternate route.  The people requesting support for their wants,
needs, and desires must attempt to gain support from a larger population
audience.

The individuals in want, need, or desire must now send out their request for aid
to the individuals in other counties.  These individuals must present their
wants, needs, and desires to their State representative.  These State
representatives must then present the request to the State representatives of
the other state districts.  These other State representatives may then present
the issue to their constituents.  Upon the receipt of response from the individual
constituents, the State representatives must relay the response to the
individuals who originated the request.

If the districts within a State can are willing and able to provide support to
each other, the State governor takes a role similar to that of a mayor.  The
governor enacts a law agreed upon between the individuals throughout the
state whom agree to support and receive the aid requested.  The governor
enacts this law so that the individuals agreeing to aid and to receive become
liable to their words of faith.  This law must be specific to the action, which will
take place between the people involved in the aid as well as the aid itself.  This
law must not bind all of the citizens of the State.  As with any laws, this law
must only bind those specific individual citizens agreeing to provide and receive
the support.  This way, only those willing and able to be involved with the
action are held liable for the neglect or abuse of the aid.

If a solution to the requesting communities wants, needs, or desires cannot be
found within the State, the State legislature must decide (with special
representation from the requesting community) whether or not to have the
governor seek resolution from the citizens of other States.  If the State
legislature deems it appropriate to have the governor seek assistance from
other States, the governor must do so.  The governor of the State requesting
aid for a community must present the request to the governors of the other
States of the Nation.  These governors may then present the situation to the
citizens, which they represent, by way of the State representatives.

If States of the Nation obtain a solution to the requesting community’s wants,
needs, or desires, the General Governor*  will execute an Agreement of Law.  
This Agreement of Law will bind, by law, the individuals agreeing to provide and
receive support.  The Federal Court, in the Federal Court district where the
States are located, will execute this law. If the States involved in the law
occupy more than one Federal Court district, the Supreme Court shall have
jurisdiction.

If the solution to the to the communities wants, needs, or desires cannot be
found within all the States of the nation, the individuals of the community have
yet another course of action with which they may pursue a resolution.  The
community must proceed to seek support for their wants, needs, or desires from
outside of the Nation.  The community must present their request to the United
States Congress through their United States representative.  The representative
of the requesting community must present the situation to their peers.  Through
great debate between the Representative of the individuals of the United
States, as well as, interaction and communication with each United States
representatives own constituents, the House of Representatives will decide
whether or not to submit the request to the United States Senate.  If the House
of Representatives decides not to pass the request onto the Senate, the
request goes no further. The community requesting support for their want, need,
or desire must continue to search for a resolution within the nation.

If the Senate receives the request, they too must debate the request in effort
to decide to pass it on to the President of the United States.  If the Senate
does not pass the request on to the President, the request goes no further. The
community requesting support for their want, need, or desire must continue to
search for a resolution within the nation.  If the United States Senate approves
the request, it will then go to the President of the United States of America.

The President must then consider the request.  Since any request from the
President will be seen, and rightfully so, as a request from the totality of
individual citizens of the United States of America, the greatest care must be
taken during these events.  Any requests of this magnitude must hold
precarious and planetary repercussions.  The President of the United States of
America must only present the most awesome and dire requests to the world.


                                             Section 1: Alibis

In Cases of Emergency.

In the case of responding to an emergency, either interstate or international,
where both the democratic and republican decision making processes are too
slow for an appropriate response; the heads of State or Nation, respectively,
shall reserve the right to provide a response upon their own judgment.  The
identifying factor for whether or not democratic and republican response is to
slow shall be that if the clamor for either response or no response occurs before
the Head of State acts.  If the Head of State acts prior to the people’s reaction
to the event, the voice of the individuals shall be heard through re-appointment
or removal of the head of State from office.

The Executives of government must keep in mind to protect and defend their
own constituents before others.  If wild fire threatens the safety of the citizens
of California, then California’s governor should not spare the emergency
resources to support Mississippi’s flooding coast. If Mexico threatens the
security and sovereignty of the United States, the President should not spare
the resources to liberate Oman from Yemen.


Laws Binding.

Any laws at any level of government within the United States of America may
only bind those willingly partaking in the law. When six States decide to take
action and create a law between them, they must not assume that every
individual in each State is bound to that law.  A majority of citizens are not
required to make a law. For example: If only 200,000 citizens between 6 States
agree on a law, only those 200,000 are bound by that law.  

No human can bind another human without the explicit specific consent of the
human being bound.  Simple geographic location does not a grant or allow for
the assumption of consent to be bound by any law.  


Constitutional Authority Dictating Executive Behavior.

State Governors and the President of the United States of America must
maintain the right to veto action requiring them to seek outside aid.  If a State
legislature deems it necessary for the Governor to submit a request to other
States, the Governor may veto this decision in accordance to the State
Constitutional law.  The President of the United States maintains the same veto
authority in congruence with laws set forth in accordance by the United States
Constitution.  Congressional bodies at the State and Federal levels may
overturn the veto and force the Executives hand by a vote, according to State or
Federal Constitutional based laws.


Solutions to Requests of Wants, Needs, and Desires.

Not all solutions to an individual or groups wants, needs, and desires may be
necessarily the solution the originator thinks is appropriate.  In most cases, the
person in want, need, or desire for a particular outcome will not achieve the
outcome.  At times they may obtain their requirement, at times they may obtain
a compromise, and many times (perhaps always) they will obtain nothing more
than what they can provide for themselves.  These outcomes are appropriate.  


Request for Support and Aid, Request to Support and Aid.

Since this section has repeatedly referred to “requesting support for wants,
needs, and desires”, and the courses of action to do so, it may seem that I
have neglected individuals and entities desiring to give charity and to provide
unsolicited support and aid to others.

The fact of the matter is that charitable actions such as these must take the
same path as actions seeking charity.  It is of the utmost importance that
individuals provide support to one another at the most local level, before
searching outward.  Appearances of opulence and grandeur are of no recourse to
those truly in need.  When a neighbor suffers from want the same as a foreigner
suffers, animosity and angst will be obtrusive and blatant when you aid the
foreigner before the neighbor.  

That honorable action, charity, must be focused so that the greatest benefit
comes of it to those who need it.  If the local neighborhood is so well endowed,
and the desire for charity remains, then it is most prudent to bring the charity to
the city.  If the city is so fortunate that it does not desire the blessing of the
individual, and the desire for charity remains, then it is wise to maintain this
regional affluence and to offer the charity up to the individuals within the
State.  When one State thrives and flourishes with abundance, if the desire for
charity remains, this State may offer its charity to other States, increasing the
National prosperity and strengthening independence.  If the day comes when all
the individuals of the Nation are in a utopian state, and there is no unfulfilled
want, need, or desire within the Nation, then the strength of that Nation may
be exercised in supporting the wants, needs, and desires of other nations of
individuals throughout the world.



                             
*The General Governor is simply a connecting entity, which provides the Supreme Court a law with which
to enforce action. At the point that the General Governor comes into action, the debates and decisions
have occurred.  The General Governor is the neutral channel to the neutral Supreme Court to allow the
equal enforcement of a law agreed upon between multiple States.
