Your Excellency: Turn the problems over to the people

4 July 2015

Open letter to the diplomatic community

Your Excellency:

Today our nation celebrates its independence. Our Founding Fathers understood that power games are oppressive to the people, and decided the new government would be “by the people, for the people, and of the people.” As they wrote the Constitution, they guaranteed to every American the inalienable rights granted to us by our Creator, to be able to create the life they want without interference, to be treated fairly and equally, and to have a voice in their government.

Today I would like to open an idea to debate, one that allows every person on the planet their inalienable rights, and allows the nations to function on far higher level, also. We are not yet at the point where we can create an international government that guarantees to every person their inalienable rights.

The international government will have three branches—the executive, legislative and judicial—and they will have the authority granted to them by the constitution of the international government to make laws, execute the laws, decide if laws are constitutional, and decide what should be done if the laws are broken.

It will also have eleven or more departments that will act as advisors to the branches. They will be made up of experts in their fields from every nation, autonomous and sovereign, and will offer viable solutions to the problems we are facing as a planet.  They will also advise individual nations and this will be one of the greatest benefits of participation in the international government.

The departments will supersede the existing institutions, taking politics out of the solution. They are the Departments of Commerce, Internal Revenue Service, Treasury, Defense/Facilitators, Corrections, Transportation, Agriculture, Oceans, Interior, Natural Resources, and the Environment. With no need for redundant research, and with combined shared resources, solutions will be found.

Yours for peace,
