The US Constitution authorizes an Enumeration — not a census.
Yes; the US Constitution does use both words,census and enumeration.
We do two things here, either could be done first.
One: define each term (census and enumeration) as to what they meant in 1785.
Two: Determine which one, if not both, that the Constitution actually grants to Congress to use.
Census, does not appear in the 1785 or the 1756 dictionaries. From 1898: census. 1. (Rom. Antiq.) A numbering of the people, and valuation of their estates, for the purpose of imposing taxes, etc.; — usually made once in five years. 2. An official registration of the number of the people, the value of their estates, and other general statistics of a country.
Enumeration, defined from 1785: The act of numbering or counting over; number told out.
We see a huge difference in the types of information the government can rightly collect.
NOTE: Regarding the Wage-Tax and the Income-Tax; both require the census to determine how much to tax each class of financial-citizen based on how many are low-wage earner, middle-wage earners, and high-wage earners (the same with actual income). Thus the single flat percentage rate income tax on true income.
What power does the US Constitution grant to Congress: enumeration and/or census?
The word census appears in the following location: The US Constitution, Article 1, Section 9, Clause 4: No Capitation, or other direct, Tax shall be laid, unless in Proportion to the Census or enumeration herein before directed to be taken.
The word census does not appear in The Bill of Rights.
The only other place in the US Constitution where the word census appears, is in Amendment 16: The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.
The word enumeration, in addition to appearing in the above locations with the word census, also appears in the following location: Twice in Article 1, Section 2, Paragraph 3: Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers. . . The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years. . . and until such enumeration shall be made. . .
No place in the US Constitution does it grant to Congress the power to conduct a census — only an enumeration. The power to count the numbers of the people. Not the power to invade the private lives of the people.
Based on the evidence, no more census will be taken. Only an enumeration of the people for the purposes of determining the number of representatives in the House of Representatives in Congress. This will simply amount to collecting the number of the total body of registered voters in each state; because it is the registered voters who select the representative as detailed earlier.
The enumeration will be conducted nationwide with less than 100 people employed for less than 90 days total.
1) Drain Swamp & Vote Count
This removes corrupted government officials and restore the sovereignty of the governed people's votes by counting all registered voter's votes in accord with the enforceable contract of The unanimous Declaration of the [then thirteen and now fifty] united States of America.
Supporting the US Constitution, Article 6, which names the four elements of The Supreme Law of the Land...
- This Constitution; The Constitution for the United States of America
- and the Laws made in Pursuance thereof; Only the laws made in pursuance of the US Constitution are enforceable — all others are void and without standing
- and all Treaties made, or which shall be made; but only those made under our nation's authority
- under the Authority of the United States; Our nation's Authority is The unanimous Declaration of the [then thirteen and now fifty] united States of America, which details the sovereign authority over our governments, which is the unified vote of the governed people
- ...shall be the Supreme Law of the Land; — all government level officials in all government branches are sworn in under Article 6 Oath/Affirmation
The unanimous Declaration of the [then thirteen and now fifty] united States of America, top of Paragraph 2, "That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed"
"Consent of the governed" is the majority of the total number of registered voters; defined in 1756 common-use dictionary,
CONSENT. 1. The act of yielding or consenting. 2. Concord; agreement; accord.
To CONSENT. 1. To be of the fame mind ; to agree. 2. To co-operate to the fame end.
Any elected officer who did not receive the consenting votes from the total number of registered voters in their district must vacate that office immediately and until such time the registered voters fill that seat with a candidate who receives the consenting votes from the majority of the total number of registered voters.
All votes for that vacant seat must be in the negative, opposing anything that is presented; until such time the people fill that seat by a candidate to consent on their behalf.
2) Reduce Illegal Immigration & All Other Crime
We can reduce Illegal Immigration and all other crime with proper enforcement of the US Constitution's Amendment 13; laws governing illegal immigration; and if not on the books already, there should be a law that fines businesses and individual who hire people who are in these united States of America illegally. Such business and individuals might suffer the loss of perhaps 5% of their business and/or personal assets for the first offense and 10% for the second offense. The business penalty, for the first offense, might first punish the person responsible for doing the hiring; and for the second offense, also for the person doing the hiring plus the business owners.
The Authority: The Constitution for the United States of America, Amendment 13:
"Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
"Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation"
In supporting the US Constitution, Amendment 13 and ( Illegal Entry”/8 U.S.C. 1325 ) has the duty to make certain that all people convicted of crime (including illegal immigration, terrorism, and all other types — minor and major) have been duly convicted. This relatively unused tool existed since 1865. A tool designed to nearly eliminate all types of crime.
This Executive Order makes government officials personally accountable as — after-the-fact — accomplices by violating an accused person's (and/or victim's) rights. Violating rights by government officers sets many guilty people free.
Labor Camps that require forced labor for long hours of the day are authorized by Amendment 13, which clarifies that it does not violate Amendment 8's cruel or unusual punishment clause — because of its later ratification date.
Amendment 13's purpose it to make the penalty for the criminal activity far worse than the crime's rewards; thus reducing crime.
We have not properly checked and stopped our government's from abusing this power, violating the - "Duly Convicted" clause of Amendment 13.
When Amendment 13 gets properly applied, the entire justice system pays for itself — because the labors of those duly convicted cover 100% of that cost.
No walls. No fences. Fewer Border Agents. Fewer jails and fewer prisons.
An added benefit to this system is that the inmates learn many new lawful skills and hard-work ethics so that when they get out, they will have jobs already lined up as already-trained persons. It also discourages people from the life of crime, where "catch and release" with eventual amnesty, as well as plea bargains only encourages crime.
From this point on, we will properly enforce US Constitution, Amendment 13 for the punishment of crime.
Any government officer who violates the rights of any accused person or any victim will be tried as an accomplice. This prohibits the use of Plea Bargains, as it violates Amendment 5 and only rewards criminals on the street and criminals in government.
Legislators in all levels of government are duty bound to repeal all laws that violate their respective state constitutions, but especially where the local law violates the US Constitution's, Article 6, Supreme Law of the Land.
Law enforcement officers are duty bound to fight any law still on the books that unjustly violates the people's rights.
Judicial officers are required to Try the Laws first to see if they violate any part of the respective constitutions. If so, the accused person must be set free, as well as freeing all others accused of and/or convicted of violating that law. This does not free person convicted of violating other laws that comply with the respective constitutions.
If the law is found to comply with the constitution, only then is the accused person tried for violating the law in question.
US Constitution, Article 3, Section 2, "the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact". All courts deal with the Law in all criminal prosecutions. Therefore, all courts are the original jurisdiction as to the Laws and the Facts with respect to those laws passed at their respective political jurisdictions; and the appellate jurisdiction for each lower-level.
3) Stop Wage Tax
Wages are not income.
The US Constitution, Amendment 16 grants power to tax Income — Not Wages: "The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration."
The first offense with the Income Tax law is that it uses a census to establish the graduated income tax rates, calculating how much to tax people of varying levels of income. Amendment 16 and amendment 14 demand a flat-rate tax on income.
With respect to labor, income is "the gain which proceeds from labor". (1913 definition)
With respect to labor, wages is "the compensation for labor". (1913 definition)
Wages are not income. No place in the US Constitution does it grant a tax on wages and is therefore unjust.
This executive order cannot force people to not pay income tax on their wages; but can only inform the people that it is not required by Amendment 16. If anything, since the employee suffers a loss from the employment, because they are not paid full value for their labor (proved by the fact that the employer uses the gain from the employee's labor to pay business overhead and such) the employee should use their wages as a loss against any TRUE Income they receive (such as: interest from investment, incoming rents, etc.)
This give the wage-earner the largest "income tax" break since Amendment 16 was passed and unlawfully enforced against wages. Remember, Congress has no authority to define words used in the Constitution tat governs their powers.
4) Equality With Income Tax
At present, Amendment 16's Income Tax is not applied equally and therefore is not equal protection under the law.
US Constitution, Amendment 16 states: "The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several states, and without regard to any census or enumeration." The Constitution does not authorize a census — only an enumeration in Article 1, Section 2.
US Constitution, Amendment 14, Section 1, "... nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws".
The way our government applies the "Income" tax — it does so in an unequal manner. It does so with regard to an unconstitutional census. Based on "amount of income", which usually is converted to unlawfully include wages; the rate of taxation is not equally applied — thus unequal protection of the laws (tax laws). The homeless person and the billionaire should pay the same number of pennies per actual dollar of income. In this manner, not rewarding or penalizing a person (generally respectively) for being poor or rich.
The "Income" tax is suspended with this Constitutional Executive Order for two reasons:
It unjustly includes wages, which are not income, because income is the gain which proceeds from labor; where wages is the compensation for labor. The employee almost never is fully compensated for the value of their labor — that is why they usually get hired — so the employer can profit or gain from the labor of the employee,
The tax is not evenly applied to all people — therefore does not provide equal protection under the law.
Potential amendments to the income tax law might include:
A single percentage rate that is evenly applied to the pauper and the billionaire. This would tax the same (for example 5%) of every dollar of actual income and not tax wages.
This can also dictate that wages for unskilled labor will top out at say $8/hour; skilled labor might top out at say $25/hour; professional labor might top out at say $125/hour; and then there is the salary of lower, middle, and upper management with annual tops at $100,000/year, $300,000/year, and $1,000,000/year respectively.
After the finalized adjustments, anything over those caps would be taxable as income. The reason for these caps are to prevent businesses from paying to themselves "wages" and "benefits" in the multiple-millions of dollars annually to hide taxable income. In addition, if the salary for the President of the United States of America is about $500,000/year with benefits; any commercial corporate President being paid more than $1,000,000/year becomes excessive in comparison, based on scope of duties and size of organization managed.
5) Reduce Nation's Debt
This Constitutional Executive Order and Constitutional Amendment returns all unconstitutional debt to those who violated the US Constitution, authorizing it and/or not repealing it.
The Constitution for the United States of America, Article 6, Paragraph 1 provides for us the means by which to eliminate all of the unjust debt our government officials passed to us. We can effectively pass all that unjust debt back onto those who signed and authorized it.
Article 6, Paragraph 1: "All Debts contracted and Engagements entered into, before the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be as valid against the United States under this Constitution, as under the Confederation."
All that means is that the people are not obligated to pay any debts that the present Constitution does NOT specifically authorize our government officers to engage.
This Executive Order refuses to spend public money for any thing the US Constitution does not authorize. With the replacement of elected officials with those who attain the majority of the total number of registered voter's consent — much of this can be repealed along with many government offices and such not authorized by the US Constitution.
All that unconstitutional debt becomes the personal liability of every living member of government who authorized it and/or when in office did not work to repeal it. Thus removing it from The Governed People's account-ledger of all unconstitutional debt.
6) Stop The Census
Constitutional Amendment Revised Presidential Electoral Vote
The US Presidential Election is the only nationally elected office of our governments and should be a two-house election process.
The First House is the Popular Vote. The candidate with the majority of the total number of registered voters' consenting votes — wins the popular vote.
The Second House is the Electoral Vote. Each State (or congressional district) should have only one electoral vote, with the candidate receiving the majority of the popular vote in that State (or congressional district) winning the one electoral vote for that state (or congressional district); winning the majority of the total number of States' (or congressional districts') Electoral Vote to win the Second-House vote.
This system requires that all candidates campaign in all the States (or congressional districts) not just the most populated, in order to win the Second House votes.
(This note is just in case I forget to put this in the proposed constitutions).
