Re: Discussion of the draft Constitution ¶
all in all it looks decent.
some concerns i have are "Monarchy", a bit outdated and tending towards "blood lines", which will tend towards titles of nobility, etc..
GIVING the power of the head of state (king) to:
Article 34,11. The Head of State may dissolve Parliament. The Prosecutor General may propose the dissolution of Parliament to the Royal Court. If the Royal Court agrees with the arguments made, it may dissolve Parliament in accordance with the law.
when Article 32.10. The Head of State may be removed from his/her position by Parliament in accordance with the procedure set by the law in the event of:
a. ongoing inability to perform his/her duties on health grounds;
b. the Prosecutor General accusing the Head of State of treason or other major crime, with such accusation confirmed by a conclusion of the Royal Court;
c. the Prosecutor General or the Chamber of Supreme Values accusing the Head of State of a gross violation of Asgardia’s Constitution, with such accusation confirmed by a conclusion of the Royal Court.
not a very stable system of checks and balances with no input from the PEOPLE and no limit of said dissolution... since the Head of State is solely responsible for appointing the Royal Court... He or She can now wield ultimate control with no legal recourse from the Citizens of Asgardia other than individual rights of the Citizens to remove themselves as Citizens of Asgardia
and... Taxation: as a citizen of the USA (like the significantly large number of Asgardians at this time), i am subject to the tyrany of over taxation with no reasonable representation by the IRS (unconstitutional) and forced to pay said taxes that are "by law" said to be voluntary... unless there will be some provision in Asgardian Law to allow Asgardian Citizens the capacity to declare their income and properties owned as paid in full... as an Asgardian Citizen, as Sovereign Property under the protection of Asgardia and thereby EXEMPT from any USA taxation... i say this is another form of taxation without representation and therefore a violation of a persons fundamental human rights. let it be known that i have no problem supporting any government that reciprocates supporting me and my family, but i will not be taxed twice for anything... if Asgardia represents my interest then they will protect me from taxation from another governing body... and visa versa...
let us deal with these important issues, shall we?
