Since Feb 19, 2010
We, the People of the Republic of California, hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; That whenever any form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Therefore, We the People have taken the first step in writing the text of a ballot initiative law that seeks to unshackle the longsuffering People of California from the bleak decades of thoroughly entangling legislation, the profuse restraining directives by unelected bureaucrats, and the restrictive court decisions by disconnected jurists that have deprived Californians from their rightful and unalienable pursuits.
In the 1970s, the People of California were prohibitively taxed in such a manner that they became a People unwelcome even in their own homes and the State at large. Relief through normal legislative means looked decades away, while families, retirees, and businesses fled the State. The People then exerted their power and passed Proposition 13, an end-around initiative that displaced the ineffective efforts of a stalled legislature, a conflicted executive leadership, and finally brought the People of California into a long period of prosperity.
Alas, the People of California now suffer a greater affliction wherein the State has made herself prone to obligations her citizens cannot possibly meet, let alone sustain. The current generation of inept legislators and tired executive branch members once again promote suspicious relief decades hence, even as her farms are blighted and a mass emigration of Californias youth, entrepreneurs and brain trust ensues. The People of California once more demand a bypath around her moribund public representatives and jurists. Insomuch, the Water For Fighting Initiative is a lance for this Gordion Knot of many problems vexing California, an initiative meant to reset the balance of California’s natural resources with her economy and to the truest measure of her needs.
Proposed Text for “Water For Fighting” Ballot Initiative:
The State of California shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise of the Peoples exclusive unalienable Right to Life; or abridging the freedom of the Peoples exclusive unalienable Right to Life, Use and Consumption of air, CO2 , water, residential property and energy generating natural resources. The State of California shall not levy any taxes, fees, assessments or fines on the Use or Consumption by the People of air, CO2, water, residential property and energy generating natural resources. Effective December 1st 2010, passage of this ballot initiative by the voters will repeal the 1970 California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), California Coastal Act of 1976, California Endangered Species Act (CESA) and the US California Global Warming Act (AB32), and Exempt the People of California from ALL Federal powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the State of California respectively, or to the People.
