Introduction: The "Spiritual intent" of God moving through the original United States of America founding fathers, and the text of the original "Constitution" has been partially preserved with extensive modifications by James Edward Peter Reesor on 17 September 2009 as required to document Amerijericho Free Barter Market concepts.
The Proposed 17 September 2009 Constitution of the United States of Amerijericho
We the People of the United States of Amerijericho, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of Amerijericho.
Section 1. All Powers herein granted shall be vested in the Spiritual Kingdom of God under the leadership of Lord Jesus Christ, and shall be assisted by Amerijericho Members functioning as Advisory Council Advocates in representation of established communities.
Section 2. Advisory Council Advocates shall be composed of resident Members of Amerijericho.
No Person shall be a Advisory Council Advocate who shall not have attained Amerijericho membership, and shall not have chosen obedience to philosophical principles as defined by the teachings of Christ.
Advocates favoring membership fees as opposed to traditional taxation shall make their desires known among the designated eleven American States classified as Amerijericho States, according to the desires of their respective populations. The annual Enumeration to Amerijericho coffers shall be made within ninety days prior to annual expiration dates, in such Manner as majority Advocates shall agree.
Section 3. The Advisory Council for the United States of Amerijericho shall be composed of seven or more Advocates from each community within each State, voluntarily serving as communication conduits to document opinions regarding all matters under consideration.
No Person shall be restricted from assuming the role of an Advocate because of age, gender, race, color, creed, bodily proportions, physical attributes, national origin, family history, religious beliefs, political ideas, education, societal idealism, or visionary prognostications.
Amerijericho Members shall always strive to remain cognizant of Christ-based knowledge required to guide us in state-of-mind manifestations to properly reveal the intent of our nation, and refrain from disputing the authority of the United States of America or any other governmental entity while in the pursuit of happiness. We shall remain within the jurisprudence of all benefactors as a nation within nations on this planet, not conforming to established laws that are in conflict with God's Laws while going about doing whatever possible to disengage from wicked entanglements that we believe to be detrimental to a uncompromising Spiritual relationship with our Almighty Leader.
Section 4. The Times, Places and Manner of maintaining Amerijericho communications will be determined by Advisory Council Advocates.
Section 5. Each community shall be the Judge over how lifestyles are refined or enhanced by Christian principles. Our philosophical ideals must be applied in practical ways to assure morality, equity and equality for every individual regardless of majority preference.
Advocates will formulate all Rules for their respective communities, and remain consistently opposed to any form of unruly rebellion.
Advocates will keep a Journal of Rule revisions, and from time to time publicly share the same publicly without favoritism or secrecy.
Section 6. Advisory Council Advocates shall receive no Compensation for Services rendered other than actual operational expenses. They shall in all Cases, except Rebellion against the Spiritual and natural Laws of God, Felony and Breach of the Peace, be privileged from Correction during their Attendance to duties, and in going to and returning from the same; and for any Speech or Debate, they shall not be questioned or shown disrespect by any person in any Place.
Section 7. Proposals for raising or lowering Amerijericho membership fees shall originate in the Advisory Council. At no time shall the wealth, poverty, mental state, various human classifications or resources of residents be a factor in making fee determinations.
Amerijericho Free Barter Markets will be designed to assure honesty and fairness for participating Members. A Credit System will be devised to enable competent accounting during transactions in a way that makes trading of goods and services an efficient marketplace experience.
Every idea which shall have passed through serious consideration by Advocates, shall, before it becomes a Rule, be presented to Lord Jesus Christ by all concerned during private prayers while fasting; if He should approve, Advocates will sense His confirmation by their feelings of harmony with Him. If disapproval becomes evident when contention prevails, Advocates will presume that the lack of peace means their proposition has been overruled. If any idea shall not be confirmed by Christ by a Majority consensus, it shall be set aside for refinement at a later date without making Rule changes.
Section 8. The Advisory Council shall have Power To collect Member fees, and provide for the general Welfare of Amerijericho communities; To regulate Free Barter Markets; To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by implementing universal methods to enable Authors and Inventors the Right to originate respective Writings and Discoveries; To make Rules concerning Environment, Land, Minerals and Water; To make Rules to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions; To exercise Authority over all Places and Resources for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution.
Section 9. The Migration or Importation of such Persons as any of the States now existing shall think proper to admit, shall not be prohibited by the Advisory Council after the Year two thousand and ten, but an annual membership fee will be requested on such Importation, not set lower than the equivalent of twelve dollars for each Person.
The Privilege of the Writ of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in Cases of Rebellion or Invasion the public Safety may require it.
No Rule or ex post facto Rule shall be unfairly imposed.
No Preference shall be given to any Amerijericho Free Barter Market Member interaction to favor one person over another: nor shall goods or services bound to, or from, one community or state, be obliged to enter, clear or pay any form of compensation other than agreed upon Credits for transportation, storage or management.
No Money or tangible assets shall be drawn from the Advisory Council Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Rules; and a regular Statement and Account of Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time.
No Title of Nobility, position of Authority, Honorarium, or Power shall be granted to any Member by the United States of Amerijericho: And no Person holding influence or Trust in a community, shall, without Official Consent of Lord Jesus Christ, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any person, group or other entity.

No Amerijericho State shall lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in hostility with the United States of America, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay for defensive purposes.
