The exact term of the contract states: "Governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed."


In order for the balloted item to succeed, it must attain the majority of the total number of the voting member's consent. Without a minimum majority, the people have not consented.


When as many as 60% to 80% of the total number of registered voters do not go to the polling station, the majority who is of the same mind, have not consented to any of the balloted items or candidates, which means that every thing and every candidate must fail for lack of consent.


To repeat: Had the term of the contract been worded differently, such as: Consent of the majority of those who check in at the polls; this website would not even contest the issue. So let's look at some of the benefits of the way the contract is worded.

Contractual benefits of Consent of the governed

  • It forces the people all political parties and other divides (such as religion, money, sex, age, etc.) to work together to find a candidate common-enough and trusted-enough by the majority of the total number of registered voters to attain their consent. Thus requiring UNITY among the people — no matter what the previous political divide. This unity-- governments fear most.
  • It saves a lot of vote-counting time. If less than 50% of the total number of registered voters check in at the polling stations — we know automatically that everything and everyone on the ballots failed for lack of consent.
  • People who do not want to consent to any thing or any one on the ballot need not even go to the polling station, which saves them time from standing in line.
  • People who want to consent to some thing or someone on the ballot need not stand in line behind non-consenting voters, which saves them time at the polls as well.
  • This demonstrates to all — that the people truly are in control of our governments for the first time in our nation's history.
  • It automatically eliminates most of the corruption in government because those elected will have earned the trust of the majority of voters — knowing that the majority of voters can remove them from office before the end of their term.
  • Counting votes in this manner also encourages more voters to go to the polls if they want some item or candidate to pass — knowing that if they do not consent to that which they want to pass — in not going to the polls their vote automatically counts against everything and everyone on the ballot.
  • The voter registration gets 100% purged more frequently, so as to remove
    • ​the names of those who died
    • the names of those who moved out of the district
    • the names of those who are incarcerated
    • the names of those who choose to not participate in voting
  • The major bonus is that it
    • ​protects the rights of those who desire to not participate in the voting process
    • it does not force those who do not want to consent to anything or anyone on the ballot to check in at the polls to have their non-consent votes counted
    • it does not penalize anyone who does not check in at the polls, which produces poor-quality results. Forced actions rarely produce quality outcome. 

With these benefits, I encourage you to circulate this website around the world to help ourselves and other nations clean up our respective governments.

We must first inform each other of the benefits — then, we must implement and enforce them. The best way to do this is with a Clarifying Constitutional Amendment with respect to how our votes must be counted.

There are other ideas to improve our Form of Government within these website pages that make better use of our defensive military when at peace; as we ll as better use of duly convicted criminal labor.  

Thank you.

Proof All Registered Voters Do Vote

First: The binding contract among all united States Americans

The meaning of Consent of the governed

This is where the phrase Consent of the governed comes together; and  how is it differs from that of Consent of the majority of those who check in at the polls?


At present, in these united States of America, our governments passed laws that violate the terms of our contract The unanimous Declaration of the [then thirteen and now fifty] united States of America. Those laws allow the government vote-counters to ignore the vast majority of registered voter's non-consent votes. They do this by using the unauthorized vote-counting practice of counting for the majority of those who check in at the polls. That "majority" is often not even the true majority of those who check in at the polls.


The government-declared winner often falls far short of even the majority of those registered voters who checked in at the polling stations (early, absentee, in-person).


What happens goes much to this scenario:

  • of a total of say, 1,000 registered voters
  • 600 of them do not go to the polling station (early, absentee, in person)
  • the laws, violating The unanimous Declaration, proclaim that those 600 non-consent votes no longer exist
  • whoever and whatever is on the ballot must merely get more votes than the opposition
    • if a balloted item, the "Yes" votes must simply be one more than the "No" votes (and not even close to 200 of remaining 400 who checked in at the polls
    • if there are more than two balloted candidates, the one who gets at least one more vote than the others is the one who gets sworn into office.



None of that scenario qualifies as definition or contract's contextual use of consent of the governed.


Let's look at some of those definitions.

It truly helps to look at our nation's and our government's founding documents as enforceable contracts — because they are. Proving this fact comes from a 1756 Common Use Dictionary. For this task, we see the snapshots of the definitions of several helpful words: Corporate, To Incorporate, To Found, Charter, By-Law, as well as To Constitute.

Along with the snapshots are captions with the contextual definitions clearly copied.

Ever since the founding of our nation, there remains to this day two enforceable contracts among all united States Americans with respect to what powers we, the people/the governed may rightly grant to our governments, which is very limited, and how our votes are supposed to be counted, which is very precise (applying to any balloted item as well as candidates).

The reason it helps to look at those two contracts the same way we look at commercial corporate Founding Charters and By-Laws is because they perform the same functions for us the governed people with respect to our governments as does the Founding Charter and By-Laws do for commercial corporation. Those two contracts are: The unanimous Declaration of the [then thirteen and now fifty] united States of America and The Constitution for the United States of America


  • The Founding Charter: The unanimous Declaration of the [then thirteen and now fifty] united States of America. As long as our nation is the united States of America — this contract remains binding and enforceable among us — the governed people. This contract founded our nation as the united States of America. This contract establishes the founding principle upon which we are supposed to build our governments.


  • The unanimous Declaration provides so much more information for the governed-people who are, when unified, the sovereign power responsible for properly controlling our government officers. We must begin acting like we the people own our government enterprises, treating our government officers as our employees and not royalty. To help with this concept, let's look into a common-use dictionary from 1756 to define Corporate, Corporation:​


  • The unanimous Declaration, literally is the social-political equivalent to The Corporate Founding Charter. The Constitution, the equivalent to the commercial-corporate By-Laws. They perform the exact same function for their respective fictitious organizations; the one a government; the other a commercial business.

Some of reasons why The unanimous Declaration of the [then thirteen and now fifty] united States of America remains important and enforceable for us today includes:

  • We still remain in the course of human events — thus still enforceable
  • It details what powers we can even grant to our governments — which are very limited
  • Lists over 24 political powers forever off-limits to our governments
  • Details how the people's vote is supposed to be counted — consent​ of the governed
  • Details our nation's foreign, trade, and war policy
  • Defines Representative
  • Warns against becoming comfortable with unlawful government restrictions against our rights
  • Informs us what we must do when our governments no longer work to secure our rights
  • Details the purpose for our nation and the system of our nation's Democracy — ​the relationship among the people with respect to our vote
  • Records our nation's true pledge to each other, which is also detailed below in its own section
  • As well as detailing precisely how our votes are supposed to be counted


The other binding Contract among the people is The Constitution for the United States of America. This binds our government officials to the powers we grant to our governments, while working as a unified body of the governed people at the polling stations. We may only rightly grant powers to our governments that fit within the contact of The unanimous Declaration of the [then thirteen and now fifty] united States of America.
