I don't like Article 3, Section II, Clause P; all land should belong to a province. I'd also like a safeguard of the rights of non-citizens, if at all possible.

Basically, the last part is areas that don't count as overseas territories (nor colonies) such as overseas military bases, embassies, etc.

That sounds fine. But I'm against colonies.

I don't believe we have any, and it's not like we're about to create one, but maybe Bermuda is a colony, or St. Helena, the Azores, Cape Verde or something.

No Antillia does not have any colonies nor did I create it to have colonies. It could have been lumped in with Bermuda before independence but even that is rather unlikely.

We need to start sending out PMs to everyone to try and get everyone involved again.

Very true.

I reckon Article 6 of the proposed constitution smacks of socialism.  Protection of trade unions and employment but not of our sovereign right to protect ourselves?  Sheesh!

     I see where you're coming from. Countries that don't even have one million people typically don't have colonies in this day & age.

I reckon Article 6 of the proposed constitution smacks of socialism.  Protection of trade unions and employment but not of our sovereign right to protect ourselves?  Sheesh!

     We need a right to bear arms! Angry How else are we to protect ourselves from communist invaders?

Well, the dictatorship was a right-wing one, so I don't really know where you're coming from.

Oh, certainly.

     Along those lines . . . I want to repeal section XIV from the Bill of Rights! If those lousy workers unionize, they'll become lazy! They must work tirelessly to bring glory to the Republic!

I don't think that we should go that far in our rhetoric, but, yes, section XIV should be eliminated.  Citizens have a right to employment, no matter how they find it.

OK, so it's time to start hammering out the differences. If anyone has anything else to add to the proposed constitution, please do so now; then we can start the rather long process of amending it line-by-line as needed.
