Posted on 04/11/2017 2:17:25 PM PDT by MEUSAF98
This is a revised version of the constitution. I support a Maine Republic as I feel that the US recently have isolated or forgot about Maine. However I feel like the post I saw from The_Republic_Of_Maine sounded to Theoretical. SO I made revisions that I think is fair.
Here's the Original post;http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/chat/3159678/posts
Now here is mine. PREAMBLE. We the people of the Republic of Maine, in order to establish justice, insure tranquility, provide for our mutual defense, promote our common welfare, and secure to ourselves and our posterity the blessings of liberty, acknowledging with grateful hearts the goodness of the Sovereign Ruler of the Universe in affording us an opportunity, so favorable to the design; and, imploring God's aid and direction in its accomplishment, do this twelfth day of June, in the year of our Lord 2018, by majority of the people voting do agree to form ourselves from henceforth into a free and independent, sovereign and free Christian Nation, by the style and title of the Republic of Maine and do ordain and establish the following Constitution for the government of the same.

Section 6. The Militia and the standing army of 1,300. So as to insure and guarantee the rights guaranteed in this Constitution and the Sovereignty of the Republic of Maine, every natural born male in the Republic of Maine, upon reaching the age of 18 years from conception through age 65 years from conception, has, as a member of the Militia, the obligation to keep and bear arms for the common defense, for his and his family's protection, to defend against this government or any government in the future from becoming oppressive, tyrannical, or in any other way obnoxious to freedom, and to secure the rights written in this Constitution. This obligation shall never be questioned. No law shall be passed that restricts this obligation, except for time in a local jail, county jail or Maine Republic prison. No law shall be passed, test given, or fee assessed to any citizen of the Republic of Maine that would restrict in any way that citizens right to be armed either concealed or open.

Section 7. All human life is precious and a gift from God. Age is counted from the moment life begins, which is at the moment of conception and as such, all human life is protected from conception to death and has the full rights of this Constitution from conception. Any citizen of the Republic of Maine may use whatever force he or she deems necessary to protect human life. All abortions are considered first degree premeditated murder, children are entrusted, by God the Creator to that child's parents and as such are the responsibility of the parents, not the state, no level of Government whether local, county or Republic is to, in any way, overrule a parent in the rearing, educating, and/or influencing that child in any way. Section 7a. Education. All education is left to the local community, to the parents first and foremost and then to the city, town or community in which the family resides. The counties and the Republic are explicitly denied any role in a child's education with the exception of Militia members while on duty and prisoners while in the care of the county jail or prison of the Republic. The first and foremost responsibility to teach a child Religion, obedience, patriotism, loyalty, righteousness, and to be a productive member of society rest squarely upon the shoulders of the parent(s), the local communities role is to support and reinforce that parental responsibility.
Section 7b. Right to Adoption/Willful Surrender of a Child If a family cannot conceive a child then due to any reason what so ever, the family has the right to adopt a child and no one and government may take that right away. If a Family cannot provide for a child or if she doesnt wish to have a child or any reason to willfully surrender the Child the family has the right to give the child to a privately or government own adoption agency/ foster home so the child may be adopted by those who wish to adopt.
Of Course It not finished but its the main body.
