Why and How I am a Committed Radical(13th in a Series): First Executive Vice President — Specified Powers, Duties & Limits
by Frank Wynerth Summers III on Friday, April 20, 2012 at 2:35pm ·
This Note will be about the Second, Third and Fourth Subsections of Section Three of Article Three in my Model Constitution. For those who want to see the Model Constitution I propose as a whole you can go to the following link:

https://franksummers3ba.wordpress.com/major-themes-of-this-blog/new-model-constitution-of-the-united-states-of-america

This proposed Constitutional change that is modeled in the Model Constitution will work itself out in three distinct thrusts:

First, there will be direct changes, recognitions and empowerments which allow for new instutions to deal directly with varied problems which exist and must be addressed in the society and its governance.

Second, there are limitations on the power of the federal government, the creation of new jurisdictions, family associations, special compacts and the strengthening of means of subsidiarity to get the federal government out of parts of people’s lives and institutional affairs where it ought not to be operating. This will also strengthen the federal government by diminishing the expenses and actions required in q world of limited resources.

Third, there are large and small reforms, renaming and reshaping of existing institutions in ways that one hope’s will improve them. This note is about such a reform as exists in this third category. It is about how most of the powers and perogatives of the current republican Presidency will be transferred to the new office of First Executive Vice- President.

The ordinary exercise of Executive power and administration will still be a very powerful office. America is in a state of real struggle and perhaps beyond any simple power of solution, the Constitution her proposed is a change of structure. Once the broder Constitutional structure is changed there is still a great deal of room for different political leaders to lead in different directions. Once more powers are reserved to the Jurisdictions there is still a powerful Union government. Once some powers are retained and some fealty is owed to the Imperial figures and royals themselves there is still a great deal of leadership and status in the hands of the ordinary political executive. In addition the early FEVPs will surely help to shape how various powers and perogatives are distributed among the Empire, Union, Jurisdictions and other constitutional players. There surely will be new complexities and some bumpy stretches on the road to a new state of being for our government but there must be an attempt to solve the crises we face nonetheless. The FEVP will be the best positioned single person to act in leading the way through all of these struggles and adjustments as well as the crises themselves. As the crisis moves toward a climax we face the need to resolve some issues quickly while at the same time we face the destruction of what social fabric we have unless we can make a strong advance in areas where we are currently completely surrendered or nearly so anyway.

The founding of the new regime will address some of these issues listed below directly but always there will be questions to resolve. Even knowing when not to have a policy is a policy. These then are some areas where a new First Executive Vice-President wil need to be able to act. I have st them out as imperatives but only a few are fully assured by the new Model Constitution. It may be the role of an FEVP to oppose some of these imperatives and delay others. It will also be his job to try to understand what role belongs within the the limits of his role and powers :

1. We must secure our borders and ports and formal functions of leadership from being overrun by essentially foreign interests.
2. We must change the debate from the irreconcilable and stupid big government-less government to debates on more complicated issues of policy.
3. The atomic bomb and the exploration of the moon are the two greatest American technical achievements and we must redeem and establish them as part of ongoing policy.
4. We must seek the right kinds of major constitutional reform and redaction so that we are not governed in madness.
5.We must tax, regulate and control the trade in currently illegal drugs with Federal parameters licensed in States and other jurisdictions.
6. We must save the Gulf Coast and the south Louisiana wetlands.
7. We must establish a better and richer foreign service community.
8. We must create sound family policies.
9. We must cut our debt.
10. We must create a large infrastructure and manufacturing sector.

I have said elsewhere that I think that without constituional change things will get much worse. I reall believe that we are nearly on the brink of societal collapse. The chance to act in our own self-interest is slipping away. There will be very few more chances to save our country after this chance has passed. But if we do act than while the Emperor secures the overall structure and some specific thrusts the FEVP will deal the daily challenges of governance.

Subsection Two- Civilian Power over Military, Cabinet, Pardon Power, Appointments and Language
Provision One: Military Powers
The First Executive Vice President shall be Ordinary Commander in Chief of the Army , Navy and Air Force of the United States, and Dux Bellorum of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States. The First Executive Vice President shall be the Ordinary Imperial Command Deputy of the Militia of the Several Territories and Possessions. He shall have no authority over the Traditional Honor Guards of the Jurisdictions, nor the Forces of the Direct Imperial Government nor of the Imperial Tribe.
Provision Two: Special Executive Powers
The First Executive Vice President 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 Power to Grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.
The First Executive Vice 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.
Provision Three: Administration Officials
The First Executive Vice President shall have exercise of due 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 the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: where otherwise provided in this Constitituion specific provisions for autonomous adjacencies and limits on the cabinet shall override all mere matters of law and where not so limited the First Executive Vice-President shall have all reasonable powers over his Cabinet ast their Chief Executive with Direct Powers pro forma and pro se and of his residence and office building as lawful Steward in Chief and Temporary Master thereof. However, outside these grants of privilge or specific provisions of the Constitution 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 Imperial House in the GRIHHA shall stamp and certify these ordinary exercises of power with the style of “under the reign of” and the name of the Emperor or “under the reign of” and the name of the Empress followed by “during the Interregnum which is the” and the right number ordinal since the founding of the Empire.

Provision Four: Language
As stated above, the Imperial House in the GRIHHA shall stamp and certify these ordinary exercises of power with the style of “under the reign of” and the name of the Emperor or “under the reign of” and the name of the Empress followed by “during the Interregnum which is the” and the right number ordinal since the founding of the Empire. The Emperor steers the ship of State and is sometimes a player capable of winning and losing in the political arena and for all these reasons he is not a figurehead or rubber stamp. “The Administration of First Executive Vice President” and the name of that official “under the reign of” and the name of the Monarch is correct formal designation of the administration. It is not to be referred to as the government nor especially “His Majesty’s Government.” The Administration shall within a year furnish all Executive Vice Presidential Speeches of the First Class, Acts of Congress and Executive Orders in the required official Translations. The required official translations are as follows: in French to the Imperial Tribal Council, to the Louisiana Purchase Compact and to the Imperial House; in Greek to the Imperial Tribal Council, in Spanish to the Spanish Borderlands Compact, in Cherokee and Hawaiian to the Compact of the Territories and in these CoT documents all numbers must be produced in arabic and Mayan numerals. No other official translations may be required although for fees the administration may produce them and shall assist in producing Compact chartered translations wherever it is not an undue inconvenience. Diplomats are to be informed of what is available officialy. Because the official language of the Empire is English care, will be taken not to slavishly imitate British Royal useage where terms are required. In addition the First Executive Vice President shall ben officer, along with the Special Vice Presidents of the Compacts, of the American Imperial Dialect and Language Board. He shall appoint a proxy to serve in his place when he is unavailable.

Subsection Three – State of the Union, Convening Congress, and General Powers
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; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment he may petition the Emperor with the Advice and Consent of the GRIHAA or DIG at Imperial whim to adjourn them to such Time as the First Executive Vice President shall think proper; Congress may determine the process of such adjournments in Laws except that he shall retain the perogative as stated for no less than one month per two year Congress and this First Executive Vice-President’s Petitioned Adjournments may thereafter be ended by edict at whim of the Emperor. They shall under this Constitution be ended by the start or ending of an Interregnum with the Empress acting with the powers of the Emperor in the Interregnum; these adjournments shall also end with the arrival of a date one month before the scheduled biennial Congressional elections or on the changing of the Calendar to the next year after the adjournment began. The First Executive Vice-President shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States. It shall be understood that where it is specified in this Constitution that the Emperor or Empress holds or retains a specific power such provision overrides this general power entusted to the First Executive Vice-President. In addition although the the United States and Empire cannot be entirely distinguished and are in an ultimate sense much the same society, they have separate government and agencies and The Emperor, Empress, GRIHHA, DIG and Imperial Tribe operate internally without interference from the US bureaucracy and the First Executive Vice-President.

Subsection Four- Disqualification and Limits, Term of Office
The First and Second Executive Vice Presidents and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors. No person may serve as First Executive Vice President for more than two full four year terms nor more than a total of ten and a half years. At the end of his tenure in office if he has served a total of six and a half or more years he may not seek election to that office again. In that case he shall be given two years to put up the plans for his library and then will become a Censor. Should he have been President less than six and a half years in total then he will be given three years to put up his library and then may renounce his right to seek reelection at the Imperial Palace and be made a Censor, If he does not renounce he will become a Censor when he turns seventy-five years of age, when known to be dying soon, ater having been out of office for twelve years or posthumouslt – whicherver outcome transpires first. Anyone who has become a Censor cannot seek election as First Executive Vice President. A woman may not seek election to the office of First Executive Vice President unless she has served for a month at the Court of the Empress awaiting permission to do so. This shall be possible whether the Empress is a regular or an acting Empress. Such permission shall not constitute an endorsement of any woman receiving such permission.
**** **** ***** **** ***** **** *** **** **** ***
If you have the energy to discuss this with friends that would be great. But the basic point here in Subsection Two: ” Civilian Power over Military, Cabinet, Pardon Power, Appointments and Language” , Subsection Two”State of the Union, Convening Congress and General Powers” and Subsection Three “Disqualification and Limits, Term of Office” of Section Three ” The First Executive Vice President” of Article Three ” The Executive and the Monarchy” is that for our system to work there must be an effective executive and more as well, and that while the Emperor and Empress will take some things to a new level and perform some vital roles the the First Executive Vice-President will exercise the ordinary political executive power entrusted to him by the Emperor. This portion of the third section of this article continues to describe a figure much like the current President of the republican Union who nonetheless has certain reforms in the nature and practice of the office itself. He has the power to petition the Emperor to adjourn Congress, although without assurance it will be done. He has his powers as Commander in Chief more returned to the customs and traditions of the past as regards the Jurisdiction and away from the current system. In addtion he is required to operate in parallel with the Empire as a system outside the Union which has some protected ties to the jurisdictions as well a Direct Imperial Government Jurisdiction over which he has no authority and with which he must interact. This cooperation and struggle is both in civilian administration and military structure. He has stronger authorities over his residence than the President currently enjoys in the White House. The First Executive Vice-President has new responsibilities as related to culture and language as American become less of a hypocritical and opressive republic and more of an Empire. There is also the transformation of the former First Executive Vice-President into a Censor after he retires. There is also special provision and an additional requirement for any woman seeking to be First Executive Vice-President. There are many changes here and elsewhere such as the Line Item Veto described in the Second Article but the office is largely continuous with that of the current republican presidency.

I have tagged a few FB friends and I will in some or all my notes. Any kind of political radicalism at any time is a risk for those associated with it and so I am keeping the tagging to a minimum and while a great deal of endorsement will be needed to effect these changes there is no indication that someone tagged in a note in this series is actually endorsing the note. As always I am willing to respond to posted comments, chat and private messages.

Discussions of the Model Constitution(12th in a Series): First Executive Vice-President, Election & Office

Why and How I am a Committed Radical (12th in a Series): First Executive Vice President — The Office and Election.

by Frank Wynerth Summers III on Wednesday, April 18, 2012 at 8:34pm ·

.

This Note will be about the First Subsection the Section Three of Article Three in my Model Constitution. For those who want to see the Model Constitution I propose as a whole you can go to the following link:

https://franksummers3ba.wordpress.com/major-themes-of-this-blog/new-model-constitution-of-the-united-states-of-america/

This is in some ways one of the least radical portions of this model constitution. It shows that there would be a good bit of continuity in the Executive, but also that there will some significant reforms and transformations. This susbsection gives me a chance to discuss how reforms would work. It also gives me a chance to discuss why they would be necessary. This Constitution is proposed in large part because of the need for changing some deep-seated values and beliefs. Not the least of those problems is the kind of American Exceptionalism that is poisonous to our current international relations and to the future of our society. America is not succeeding splendidly in every possible way and by every possible measure and it seldom has and no society should require people to say such things just to run for office effectively.

I think America is actually rich in political, cultural and social resources. I myself vote regulary in all the complex electoral realites of Louisiana politics and their window and bridge to American political life. However, I think our political system like many other aspects of our society is in decline and is really threatened. It is not that our system in its inner purity is perfect or does not need improvement. But it is a real and vibrant system. It is unique to us and so is the new Constitution I propose. I remember a recent election and have notes about how it impressed me for good and ill.

On October 2, 2010 I voted in a typical Louisiana political election in which there was at least one October race that was an open primary and the two top vote-getters committed to runoffs in November if neither gets over fifty percent of the vote across the state there are usually many of these October races and we all vote in a few. Then some get majorites and the rest face another better informed election in November when the rest of the country votes by and large. That October the US Senate race had a separate primary already and will have narrowed the field to three by party — possibly there would be no majority and a rare Louisiana official would serve with a first-past-the-post plurality which most media calls a majority in other states. However, it was a walk for Republcan David Vitter over redistricted Congressman Melancon. Some officials ran unopposed and so and were almost crowned and anointed in the manner of modern Teutonic. Then there were a number of two person races where the competition had already been eliminated and where our voting machines must thus produce a majority as we do not have spoiled ballots or write-ins. In Louisiana we elected at the ballot our Lieutenant Governor, the appellate courts, the varied local races and the public service commissions. We also had many school board races that were big and important that day. Every school board I know of outside New Orleans is electing its leaders that Saturday.

We also have two constitutional amendments on the ballot. One was to place GOHSEP staff in the unclassified civil service category. Another is related to official scheduling of the legislative year. None of these issues were huge in my mind. I voted early and with less certainty as to how I should vote than usual. However, I was enthusiastic enough to recommend voting to many people I met at the football game my nephews played in on the morning of the election. In another recent election we elected members to a Board of Elementary and Secondary Education where the Governor appoints another portion of the same board after consulting with experts. The point is not that Louisiana politics is perfect or all one thing or another but it is improvable, rich and deeply tied to all sort of cultural and institutional realites it needsto be dealing with well. The national system is too much big television and small-minded sloganism. I think our current presidential elections are in trouble. I believe that both too much and too little are at stake at the same time. I look at the systems in many other countries and believe they are getting worse for reasons too technical to outline here. But briefly British and Commonwealth FPTP combined with modern multiple parties is a bad system for the democratic element but is bailed out by other segments of the system. In other countries apathy and hatred are increasingly the real contenders for power.

So, how do I see our system? I feel a certain amount of sympathy for Barack Obama in a system where no Socialist Party is really available, where federalism has weakened and dodged the raclal aspects of our federal tradition he was a man with limited options. He lost some dignity in rushing through the Senate to the White House but it is an easy choice to understand. He lost some dignity in learning Constitutional technique without absorbing its values even if only to better reject them But in the mix of misinformation that is the modern elite law school it is understandable. I am not only a conservative or only a liberal, I am coming at every question from a very unusual place. I have learned and must learn from Right and Left and Center.

But despite my catholicity an openness in many aspects of my thinking I consider myself to be one of the people most opposed to Barack Obama within the spectrum of legitimate politics. In addition, I committed to conservative opposition to Obam by and large when he was running for President. However, I don’t think that there is any doubt that we have reached the point where Conservatism can be looked at as something which has merited the term “crisis”. America is in a crisis and I believe that it will prove to be a very grave crisis. However, conservatism is in a far greater crisis. For argument’s sake let us say that the terms right and left, Democrat and Republican describe a real political dynamic which matters in this country. I would argue that on the right in this country we have lots of politicians who use the label “conservative” but actually we have a collection of Libertarians, Tax Avoiders, Moderate Neo-Fascists , Ultra-Reformed Protestant Theocrats, and Anglophile Antiquarians who collectively squeeze a weak and demoralized conservative group of Americans who hardly matter at all. I think that in the new regime there will be moresystems in jurisdictions, the back-up of the royal institutions and all of this will allow for formal organized factions in the Republican and Democrat Party and also allow for more functioning parties to emerge at least in reletively small but significant ways. Thus the GOP or its renamed successor could be a truly Conservative Party with organized factions that do what the relatively unfocused groups do badly now. The Democrat party could be a Liberal-left party with a real socialist, perhaps some leftist but extremely royalist faction, a Dixiecrat faction and others. In addition there would be parties to whom those factions could peddle their votes and win a race outright now and then. It is is not guaranteed that this will happen. But I believe that as the tyranny of democracy is renounced the democratic element will be able to emerge in purer and better fashion that satisfies more democratic legitimate needs.

Suppose there is a basis for people in large numbers to group together against Obama’s policies. Some of those in these almost never discussed GOP groups that should be factions would join the center of the party or its renamed successor and would be trueConservatives if there really was a Conservative Movement for them to be part of effectively. There would be a reshuffling and some would join the emerging minor parties as well because their destructive behavior in 2008 comes from the fact that they fundamentally despise Conservatism.

While I am a committed radical I do practice conventional political participation. I voted for George Bush the first time and almost certainly would have voted for him the second time if I could have made it to Beijing’s American Embassy in time to vote. However, I missed that election. I voted for Mcain-Palin in the most recent election. I think I have voted for Mary Landrieu a Democrat every time. Through my life I have voted for a collection of Democrats, Republicans and Independents.

My odd and limited sympathy for Barack Obama comes into play once more as I reflect on my own political life and asociations in regard to his history. Like Obama (and a lot of other people) I have had to make the best choices I could at any given time and deserve to be judged by those choices but not by how I would behave in some fantastical world of choices and associations that did not exist. Like Obama and others I have some friends that do not clean up so well for the television cameras and critics as they might. By the time I was old enough to vote I had forged a lot of bonds and relationships which included fundamentalists, communists in other countries, resentful Moslems, white supremacists, black radicals and lots of other people who don’t fall into the neat safe categories that President mills like mid century Yale Law normally produce in quantity. If I were to have made a run at the US Presidency there would be people some folks would like as little as I like Rev. Wright and David Ayres. Despite all that colorful background I have lots of self-respect and more oddly yet, I think of myself as an authentic American Conservative who has taken some Saocialist ideas very much to heart. Arguably, I am one of the minority of American conservatives who could be optimistic abpout the Obama example of emerging from the complexities of the real political jungle of our streets and other streets. Instead of committimg myself to radical change I could commit to a conventional path in politics. I could reason that if such an oddly positioned person of such a background as Barack Obama can be President of the United States then maybe I could at least get elected parish assessor, city dog-catcher, county councilman, water-district representative or something else somewhere in the land of the free and the home of the brave. But we have run out of the sypathy and empathy I feel for Obama. Somehow I don’t think Obama’s election signifies anything nearly that hopeful for someone like me.

I dare to write a Model Constitution without ever having held public office. I am willing to advocate for big restructuring without ever having gotten a government paycheck. That is unless you include the kinds of paychecks given by fellowships and part-time job checks from school boards and universities which I have gotten in the past. I am able to say that I have won a few elections. I won a seat on Dorm Council in College, I was elected as Outstanding Graduate in my department , college and university for that particular commencement exercise at a different school. Then In China a few years ago I organized elections among my student for various class and subgroup offices. Then there are a couple of elections where I was elected to post that I can’t discuss here by groups that like their privacy. None of those races seem very much related to the Presidency or even a governorship however. In most of these races my political philosophy was not a central aspect of what people were electing me for or voting against. Many people hold office for other reasons than political philosophy. People vote for friends, members of their race or class, to keep seniority in a legislature or because they are personally opposed to the candidates opposition. But in the big leagues there are always some questions of political philosophy that become important. I would argue that Conservatism is usually not on the menu often Liberalism is not either. This Model Constitution makes room for Liberal and Conservative politics I feel If this were ratified it would impose a structure but leave a great deal more open to changing with political sway changing hands in hard fought elections. I think that a coherent expression ofmy views on American Conservative political philosophy would require at least one very long book. If someone hasn’t read any of the books which have helped to from my opinions then an article or two would not make the great sweep of ideas stand clear. Here I am drafting a constitutionin which Liberals, Libertarians and others can rightly see some of their own ideas and values reflected. But it is structure that would be changed and procedure. So how will it change as regards electing the ordinary executive.

There will be 949 Electors derived from the popular vote in Jurisdictions and Military Bases. The States will get three bonus electors assigned to their popular vote compared to the Territories and the Possessions. The members of the Bouletherion elect two more mebers by a nuanced and unique but mostly popular vote which is a kind of bonus like that for military bases which the Imperial Tribe will receive as a token for allowing the many representatives in the Imperial Conclave. The four representatives for the Colored Districts in the States will not be assigned by the popular election. The colored districts in the States will vote as citizens of the States and will be represented in the same way and at the same variance they are entitled to vote for the State Legislature members they elect. Gaining these 951 popularly elected delegates will clearly be important. However, there will be eighty-four Electors-for-Life with one each elected by each Jurisdiction and two elected by the Imperial Tribe. The Jurisdictions and the Military are entitled to assign their popularly elected lectors by any system they wish so long as the one that gets the most votes gets the most electors. Therefore it is possible some will assign them proportionaly. However, even if they are all winner-take-all pluralitarian systems the parties and candidates are likely to want to show respect for the electors for life and to keep their goodwill. That will greatly change the nature of the total elction process. Because of the royal monarchs the society will be able to afford to wait for the Conclave of the Electoral College to determine who is the First-Executive Vice President. Ideas and ideals will be better defined I believe.

Section Three: The First Executive Vice President

Subsection One: The Office and Election

The executive Aministration and ordinary exercise of Executive Power shall be vested in a First Executive Vice President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Second Deputy Vice-President chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows:

Each Jurisdiction shall appoint a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State, Territory or Possession may be entitled in the Congress and these electors shall have been elected at a general and direct election bearing both the name of the First and Second Executive Vice Presidential Candidates and the names of the electors. The Military ditricts shall elect a slate of Free Military Electors in the same manner. The Imperial Tribe’s Bouletherion shall be recognized in the laws it establishes which shall govern how The Imperial Tribe shall also elect two electors in the time of the General election and have two members of the Boulethrion of Bouletherion Vice Presidential rank who are Electors- for-Life whatever privileges the Jurisdictional Electors-for-Life have under the Laws and Constitution shall belong equally to these two Bouletherion Electors for Life who shall also serve as Protocol directors for the Electors for Life. The Jurisdictions however shall in addition name according to Jurisdictional Law an Elector-for-Life who shall vote in each of these First Executive Vice-Presidential elections and in those of the Emperor at the Conclave, these must be named each year unless impeached by the State Legislature and convicted by the GRIHHA of High Crimes — they are elected when a vacancy occurs by reason of death or removal. No Senator or Representative, or Person holding an Office of Trust or Profit under the Federal Government Portion of the United States, shall be appointed an Elector. Electors for Life may hold Jurisdcitional or Imperial Posts if permitted by their Jurisdiction. The electors shall all assemble within two weeks of the General Election and their proceeding shall be fully recorded and then kept secret for fifty years. On the First ballot only the Electors for Life shall be free and the others shall be robot-electors. They robots shall cast their vote by Jurisdictional caucus and the Electors for life will together cerify the their votes. Outside the Conclave, the President of the Senate shall, in the Presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the Certificates, and the Votes shall then be counted. If there is some candidate with a full majority of more than half of all the votes that candidate will be First Executive Vice President. If not then a second ballot shall be announced and all those robot- electors dedicated to candidates ranked lower than fifth place or having fewer than five percent of the votes shall be free to change their vote. On the Second Ballot, the robots and freed electors shall cast their vote by Jurisdictional caucus and the Electors for life will together cerify the their votes. Outside the Conclave, the President of the Senate shall, in the Presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the Certificates, and the Votes shall then be counted. If there is some candidate with a full majority of more than half of all the votes that candidate will be First Executive Vice President. If there is none then all the robots will be freed to vote as they choose and the entire sitting House of Representatives will be added to the electoral college and all military and other non-State Jurisdiction seats will be divided among the States with whom they are aforehand associated. Each Super State Caucus shall immediately choose by Ballot a candidate for President and all the votes that caucus are to be certified for that single candidate. Then the wholly free assmbly shall vote and their votes shall be added to those of the caucuses and this process will be repeated with the elimination of the lowest vote-getter on each round until the majority emerges and that majority candidate is First Executive Vice-President. The Congress may determine the Time of choosing the Electors in a General Election, and the Day on which they shall give their Votes; which Day shall be the same throughout the United States and Federal American Empire. No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of First Executive Vice-President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

If you have the energy to discuss this with friends that would be great. But the basic point here in Subsection One: ” The Office and Election” of Section Three ” The First Executive Vice President” of Article Three ” The Executive and the Monarchy” is that for our system to work there must be an effective executive and more as well, and that while the Emperor and Empress will take some things to a new level and perform some vital roles the the First Executive Vice-President will exercise the ordinary political executive power entrusted to t him by the Emperor. This portion of the third section of this article introduces to us figure much like the current President of the republican Union who nonetheless has certain reforms in the nature and practice of both the election and the office itself. One of the specific changes is that the people in the Electoral College are called the Electoral College but the meeting at which they assemble to elect the First Executive Vice-President is to be called the Conclave or the Vice-Presidential Conclave. Another change is that like the current president who can only stand twice for election the FEVP will also be restricted that way but the constitution would function one who receivesa a pertial term throough detah of the FEVP to hold two full terms in addition so long as the portion he recieved did not exceed half of th unfulfilled term. The Electors-for Life who are a voice for a more sober approach are part of the other election in the executive as well the one that elects the Emperor and Supreme President which will be called the Imperial Conclave. Those changes are integral to the new system itself.
