Preamble

We the People of the Republic of America, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the Republic of America.

Article One

Legislative 

Section One: All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Senate of the Republic of America.

Section Two: The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State chosen every two-months by the People of those several States. No Person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained two-months of Citizenship in the Republic of America, and who shall not when elected, be an inactive member. When vacancies happen in the Representation from any State, the Executive Authority thereof shall issue Writs of Election to fill such Vacancies. The Vice President of the Republic shall be President of the Senate but shall have no Vote unless they be equally divided. 

Section Three: The Senate shall enter into a new week-long session every Monday. Any matter of debate or discussion that is not properly concluded by the beginning of the next active session shall be permanently tabled until formally brought back up.

Section Four: The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the Republic is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two-thirds of the Members present. Judgment in Cases of impeachment shall not extend further than removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the Republic: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment, and Punishment, according to Law.

Section Five: The Senate may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly Behaviour, and, with the concurrence of two thirds, expel a Member. The Senate shall keep a Journal of its Proceedings, and from time to time publish the same, excepting such Parts as may in their Judgment require Secrecy; and the Yeas and Nays of the Members on any question shall, at the Desire of one-fifth of those Present, be entered on the Journal.

Section Six: Every Bill which shall have passed the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the Republic of America; If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to the Senate in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two-thirds of that House shall agree to pass the Bill, it shall become a Law. But in all such Cases, the Votes shall be determined by yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal. If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which case it shall not be a Law.

Section Seven: The Congress shall have Power to declare a State of War.

Section Eight: No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility.

Article Two

Executive

Section One: The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the Republic of America. He, together with the Vice President, shall hold their Office for a four-month term with no limit to the number of elected terms. Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:


“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the Republic of America, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the Republic.”

Section Two: The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the Republic, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the Republic; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have the Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment. He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of a Supreme Court, and all other Officers of the Republic, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments. The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

Section Three: He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.

Section Four: The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the Republic, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Article Three

Constitutional Amendment

Section One: An amendment, or change to the Constitution, may be proposed either by the Congress with a two-thirds majority vote or by a constitutional convention called for by a majority of the Republic population.
