“There are only two ways to conquer and enslave a nation. One is by [War] and the other is by [Kapital].”-Federalist President John Adams
The American people constitute the Totality of these United States. Like the Work-Standard and the Federalist Command Economy, our Union is designed to function as a Council Democracy under the Constitution. However, the Jeffersonians in the Democratic-Republican Party (as two parties) continue to treat the Union as though it were a Parliamentary Democracy. What has happened over the course of US history is a dysfunctional compromise between Councilor governance and Parliamentarian governance, creating unwanted partisanship, gridlock, government shutdowns, campaign financing, distrust, and this nagging refusal to accept the results of certain Presidential Elections. Unbeknownst to most Americans, these conditions on US soil are coalescing with a growing sense of nihilism and apathy that causes the loss of political participation, economic participation and social participation in the American Way of Life. As of 2021, Jeffersonianism has reached its logical conclusions in domestic and foreign policies, compelling the other American political tradition–Hamiltonianism–to return to power.
Only in this last part of the final SMP Compendium entry are we now discussing about American Conservatism and Hamiltonianism; Unified Federalist Student Economy; the Federalist Party and Hamiltonian Federalism; and Greater America Amendment. Expect Fiscal Conservatism to be repurposed for the Work-Standard and Command-Obedience Account Bookkeeping once the prerequisite Relevancy and References are made available.
Remember, I will only be proud as an American if I have Geld (Money) pegged to my own Arbeit (Work); I am always ashamed if I have Kapital (Capital) pegged to my own Schuld (Debt/Guilt).
American Conservatism and Hamiltonianism
Hamiltonianism must regain its rightful dominion over the ideological void that has defined American Conservatism since the Great Depression. Accommodations needs to be made to allow Conservatives to join its United Front of Nationalists and Socialists, Environmentalists and Traditionalists, Statists and Ultramontanes, Anarchs and Authoritarians. If done properly, the result is the creation of Hamiltonian Federalist Socialism by a new-old Federalist Party determined to assert its rightful place in the American Way of Life. The great question is how to separate factions like the Jeffersonian Conservatives (Read: Neoconservatives) and Classical Liberals from our Socially-minded Capitalists (Read: Religious, Social, and Fiscal Conservatives) discussed previously in Part III of “Technology and the War Effort.” If there is something in the Work-Standard that appeals to those Conservatives and they are willing to try something different, they may be in the position to adopt Hamiltonianism and reject Jeffersonianism. Everything depends on how well Hamiltonianism and the Work-Standard are conveyed to them.
An American Conservatism founded on Arbeit and Geld is far more favorable to and supportive of Hamiltonianism than an American Conservatism founded on Kapital and Schuld; Kapital and Schuld are what American Conservatives have always been receiving from Jeffersonianism since the Great Depression. This is why I have been citing Russell Amos Kirk as an important figure in the context of the Work-Standard. Kirk was one of those pro-Hamiltonian American Conservatives who understood the historical consequences emanating from the New Deal. He instinctively realized that the New Deal was in fact counterproductive to the goals of Socialism in America. However, like the German Reich, the Soviet Union, People’s Republic of China, and the Eastern Bloc Socialisms, Kirk was also unable to figure out what was needed to replace Kapital and Schuld.
Meanwhile, in the United States of the SMP Compendium, our Hamiltonian Congress and Presidency are now paying down the National Debt. The US National Debt, now in the trillions of US Notes, are dwindling thanks to the political, economic, financial and social restructuring brought on by the Greater America Amendment. We can tell based on the accounting work provided by Command-Obedience Account Bookkeeping.
Earlier in this Section of the Compendium, the other Socialist nation (which is clearly not the United States) was non-Marxist and had been formatting their basic Command-Obedience Account Bookkeeping Formula as this:
State = Totality + Self
For the purposes of Hamiltonianism, the basic Command-Obedience Account Bookkeeping Formula will be formatted in a distinctly American manner:
State of the Union = Totality of the Union + Self of the Union
There is no doubt that our Command-Obedience Account Bookkeeping Formula will be formatted according to Article Two, Section Three, Clause One of the Constitution:
[The President of the United States] shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient[.]
The President of the United States shall deliver the State of the Union Address by also discussing with the American people about the State of the Union, the Totality of the Union, and their Self of the Union. In addition to the State of the Union Address, we also have the “Audit the Fed!” App on PCs, Tablets and Smartphones to see for ourselves, courtesy of the Internal Revenue Service.
America must decide: shall it be peace and prosperity or decadence and decline? To cut government spending with Hamiltonianism is to cut consumer spending with the Work-Standard because all Americans must learn how to live within their own means of production. Fiscal Discipline under the Work-Standard is a Command Responsibility for all Americans and not just for the Federal government.
Fiscal Discipline: My Self of the Union
I have discussed about “Arbeit and Geld” throughout the SMP Compendium and The Fourth Estate. Now, I will describe how I will measure my own Quality of Arbeit (QW) and Quality of Geld (QM). Everyone is welcome to measure theirs as well.
To determine the rates at which I would contribute Arbeit and generate Geld, I need to know whether my actions are sustainable for my own personal well-being and self-preservation. That means knowing the Sustainability of my personal abilities: I have to balance the Quality of the Arbeit and Geld that I create by me pursuing my own Vocation and the Frequency at which I am creating Arbeit and Geld.
If the United States is relying on the Work-Standard, this preceding Reference Table describes how I am creating Arbeit and Geld with the SMP Compendium and operating The Fourth Estate.
The faster I am at creating Arbeit and Geld, the more likely I am able to decrease my Quality of Arbeit and increase my Quality of Geld up to a certain point before it becomes Unsustainable. A Lower Quality of Arbeit means I am receiving less Geld by contributing less Arbeit of superior Quality. This is because the Value of my Arbeit is depreciating, which can be inferred to mean that the Price for my Arbeit is rising. If my Attrition Rate outpaces my Inaction Rate, everyone reading The Fourth Estate knows I am devoting too much of my Life-Energy toward the completion the Compendium and leaving behind too many typos.
The slower I am at creating Arbeit and Geld, the more likely I am able to increase my Quality of Arbeit and decrease my Quality of Geld up to a certain point before it too becomes Unsustainable. Higher Quality of Arbeit means I am receiving more Geld from contributing more Arbeit of superior Quality. The Value of my Arbeit is appreciating, which can be inferred to mean that the Price for my Arbeit is falling. But too much of a good thing can also be a bad thing: if my Inaction Rate outpaces my own Attrition Rate, everyone reading The Fourth Estate would know for certain that I am not devoting enough of my Life-Energy toward the completion of the Compendium before the end of October 2021 at the latest.
To achieve the greatest Quality of Arbeit for the least Quality of Geld, I must prudently strike a balance between the Quality of my Arbeit and the Frequency for whom I am creating this Arbeit. My Quality of Geld will automatically readjust itself to my Quality of Arbeit.
Since I am only accounting for myself as an Individual, I do not need to account for anyone else. I can reformat the Quality of Arbeit Formula so that I can immediately go straight to my Final Quality of Arbeit (FQW):
[Work-Productivity (Force Multipliers) – Work-Intensity] * Mechanization Rate = FQW
On the Command side, there are two variables that I can control on my own and two variables that I cannot control on my own. The variables which I am able to adjust are my WP and my WI, with FM being set by the Federal government and MR set by the Federal Life-Energy Reserve. I have both Self-Ownership and Self-Sovereignty over my Blog and the SMP Compendium. Nobody is telling me to do anything; everything is completely left to my own discretion.
The Federal-State Commissaries, based on the given economic conditions of the United States in the Compendium, would set the official rate at which 1 Blog post is worth. For every Blog post I create on “https://fau.fourthestatepolicy.fae.us/,” my WP goes up by $0.71 USN (as opposed to “$0.71 USD”).
For the sake of Reference, here is the Table for Force Multipliers:
We know that 7 long blog posts of comparable Quality were created by me over the course of a given week. My FM is 1.05. I received 0.35 by spending 14 hours in the entire week just to create the 7 blog posts, with 8 hours raising the FM by increments of 0.20; 0.50 by receiving support and sponsorship from the Unified SSE and the student government; and 0.20 by achieving Economic Socialization for a placeholder Editor and a placeholder Website Technician.
My WI is represented as how much I needed to pay the Federalist Intranet Service Provider to maintain The Fourth Estate, $4.99 USN per month. The current Mechanization Rate is 8.15%, which means that 8.15% of the US Economy is fully automated. My FQW is $1.86.
If I decide to opt for an actual Profession as my true Vocation, in accordance with the earlier entries in this Compendium Section, my personal FQW would be a lot higher.
With FQW, I also know my contributions of Arbeit to the Total Economic Potential of the United States, $1.86, but what about that Website Technician and the Editor from earlier? The Editor proofread the 7 blog posts and the Website Technician formatted their respective webpages at my behest. I have no control over their WP and WI; their WP is dependent on their overall performance as professionals who have been allowed by the Unified SSE to assist, whereas their WI is controlled by the occupation Guilds for their respective Professions. Therefore, let’s assume that the Editor contributed $1.92, and the Technician contributed $7.05, the latter because they were working with Digital Arbeit (as opposed to the Editor and I, who had originally written and revised the Blog posts offline).
If I know their FQWs, I should also know my Economic Socialization (ES) value as part of my Final Quality of Geld (FQM). The Quality of Geld Formula requires that I provide my Quality of Geld for 1 Profession (MP) by finding my FQW, the ES value determined by how much Arbeit that my own FQW had created for others, and the first half of the Solidarity Rate for Scale of Production (SR1), which is 0.50 because SR1 involves finding the Quotient of the Scale (which is 7 blog posts) and the Duration (which is 14 hours).
FQW + (ES1 + … + ESx) * SR1 = MP
(MP + Federal-State Revenue) * SR2 = FQM
SR1 = Scale / Duration of Production
SR2 = Density / Scope of Production
I am also not generating any Geld for these United States as Federal-State Revenues (FSR) while operating The Fourth Estate because I intend to let everyone browse the website freely and not have to pay anything just to read the SMP Compendium in its current state. This brings me to the second half of my Solidarity Rate for Scope of Production (SR2), which should 1.00 because the SMP Compendium will already be completed once I upload the last of the final entry, so that all I am doing in this scenario is writing a blog post (1.00) daily on The Fourth Estate (1.00).
Final Quality of Arbeit (FQW) / Final Quality of Geld (FQM) = Attrition Rate
Dividing my FQW by my FQM, my Attrition Rate should 1.99% because I spent significant amount of effort creating 7 blog posts and enlisted the services of two people. As long as the Attrition Rate stays within 3.00%, I will be fine and likewise for those two. The longer I spend each week creating more blog posts and the longer I continue to consult the services of those two, the greater the likelihood that we can expect my Quality of Arbeit to decline to the point of becoming unsustainable. That is, assuming I have decided to consider my website as a source of Arbeit and Geld on the Federalist Intranet under the Work-Standard of course. If I decide to sell print copies of the SMP Compendium on my website and I am permitted by the World State Organization’s International Internet, Heliopolis, my FQM will be high enough to reduce the overall Attrition Rate because my FQW will appreciate as a result.
RTEP = TEP / Attrition Rate
RTFP = TEP + TFP / Attrition Rate
If we are just talking about myself, $10.83 is the TEP value of my contribution of Arbeit, the Real Total Economic Potential (RTEP) being $5.44 because of the Attrition Rate being 1.99%. And if $5.42 is the TFP, then my generation of Geld to the Real Total Financial Potential (RTFP) is $8.17. Therefore, my personal decision to write 7 blog posts for The Fourth Estate for just a single week was able to grow the LER-LERE Accounts of these United States by $13.61.
Once again, I remain confident that there is an infinite number of ways for every nation to live within its own means of production by placing greater emphasis on Meaningful Work and warding off any Meaningless Work with the Mechanization Rate. The more Meaningful Work available for all Americans, the more capable we are at minimizing our Attrition Rate, eliminating the Inaction Rate, and avoiding any needless invocations of the Transvaluation of All Arbeit. Everything else will depend on our overall well-being and performance. As for Arbeit and Geld from the Unified SSE and the political process itself, both are separate matters altogether.
The Unified Federalist Student Economy
Like most Socialist Student Economies (SSEs), our Unified Federalist Student Economy (UFSE) has enough autonomy to act as a mirror of the administrative command structure of the Federal and State governments. We can tell by literally reapplying the procedures to the student government of our Unified Socialist Student Economy under the Department of Education. Young people will know how America if they are allowed to demonstrate it for themselves and the grownups within their very own Federal Student Government. They are the first ones to know whether there is something inherently wrong about the political process, which was basically what motivated those American youths during the 1960s Counterculture.
Jeffersonianism: Student Congress of Parliaments
Every school and university will have a Student Council, the local students voting for Municipal Student Delegates on an election day. Local students also have to vote for the State Student Delegates of their School District to the State Student Legislature on a second election day. Moreover, the Student Body of the UFSE is governed by fifty State School Systems and the District of Columbia: each State votes for their State Student Governor on a third election day.
Local students elect their Federal Student Representatives to the Federal Student Government on a fourth election day; should the youth wing of a political party happens to win the most seats, they will be allowed to choose the Federal Student Speaker. In this case, the Democratic-Republican Party youth wings, the “College and High School Democrats” and “College and Teenage Republicans” will decide. And thanks to Amendment XVII, the Student Body also has to elect their Federal Student Senators on a fifth election day where only the “College and High School Democrats” and “College and Teenage Republicans” have the best chance of winning.
And if that was not enough, the Student Body of the UFSE need to elect their Student Government President and their Student Vice President for a sixth election day. Student Presidential Elections must gain 270 out of the 538 Electoral Votes from the State Student Electors of the UFSE Electoral College. All State Student Electors are members of the “College and High School Democrats” and the “College and Teenage Republicans,” personally hand-picked by the party leadership of the Democratic-Republican Party at the State level. In the event of a tie (which is very likely because there are only 538 State Student Electors), the Federal Student Representatives will choose one of the three highest-voted Presidents and the Federal Student Senators choosing one of the two highest-voted Vice Presidents on a seventh election day. Due to Amendment XX, the Student Body must coronates their Student President for Inauguration Day on January 20.
All the problems of the US political process under Jeffersonianism will be reflected in the UFSE. That includes the 2-year terms for Student Representatives, 6-year terms for Student Senators, and 4-year terms for Student Presidents and Vice Presidents. The Department of Education intervenes as the Judiciary and acts as the Federal functionaries bringing all constitutional questions of youth uncertainty and anxiety to the US Congress and US Supreme Court. My fellow Americans, we all know what is going to happen if the Democratic-Republican Party’s youth wings are in charge of the UFSE. Just like our Federal, State and Municipal Governments, it is only going to be more of the same if their youth wings control the Student Government: the whole UFSE is going to be privatized, there will be unjust taxation and overspending, unpayable student loans and rents.
Why should Americans, young and old alike, be forced to spend as many as six or seven days on elections? How many will accept the results for any one of them? Have we forgotten why the 1960s Counterculture rebelled against this political madness? Does Hamiltonianism have a better way of ensuring that the UFSE political process will run more smoothly?
Hamiltonianism: Student Congress of Councils
Any form of economic planning will only be as effective as the people involved in the production process. Mission-Type Economic Planning (MTEP) demands a national educational system capable of instilling the Prussian arts of Auftragstaktik (“Mission-Type Command”) and Fingerspitzengefühl (“Instinctive Situational Awareness”), ensuring that every high school and university student is capable of unlocking latent potential and can intuit the presences of any opportunities that comes their way. The 1960s Counterculture has demonstrated this reality to the Federalist Party because American Council Democracy begins with the students from every high school and every university throughout the entire Union.
But unlike the political youth wings of other Socialist countries, including the Soviet Union, German Reich, People’s Republic of China and Yugoslavia, our SSE must account for the political process since all high schoolers and university students have political and economic participation as US citizens. The UFSE provides America its chance to implement a new kind of SSE that will not only gain the respect of every SSE on Earth, but it will set the stage for youths of the whole world to learn how to govern themselves properly as the citizens of their own nations in a Socialist world order. Each and every student in these United States shall learn and train for the necessary character-building and leadership training required for MTEP, regardless of which Profession they end up choosing as their Vocation.
This is why the UFSE is going to be considered as one of the greatest contributors of High-Quality Arbeit to the Federal Life-Energy Reserve: the UFSE must strive to ensure that America’s youth will become upstanding, law-abiding adults. Due to the UFSE’s contributions of High-Quality Arbeit, every student will receive free education and free healthcare, a student allowance and national uniform, opportunities to afford room and board away from their parental household, classes and electives where they will learn hands-on practical training, ethics, religious and political education as well as the usual curricula. The US Congress shall allocate Geld toward Department of Education for the construction of facilities, barracks and dormitories, and enlistment of personnel determined to teach and train the next generation.
Students will also receive a special metal badge and alterations to their UFSE uniform by participating in a Carl Jung-esque Extracurricular Guild Occupations (EGOs) devoted to specific afterschool fields. That is right: not everyone wears the exact same uniform; some of us are more distinguishable by our medals, ribbons, and which EGO is defining our afterschool life. Below is a table of proposed EGOs under Command-Obedience Account Bookkeeping:
Personal Rank and Achievement or Family Wealth and Connections?
Here is the best part of all, complete with political implications for the Municipal, State and Federal Governments: the UFSE offers all students their chance to participate in the political and economic affairs of their Student Government. They will train and prepare themselves for the political and economic statecraft of the US Federal, State and Municipal governments in a functioning Council Democracy. Age range for political positions in UFSE runs between 14 and 34; if the youngest age to run for US Presidency is 35, then the oldest age to run for UFSE Presidency will be 34.
The Student Body of the UFSE is governed by fifty State School Systems and the District of Columbia. Every high school and university have a Student Council of Student Delegates. Student Delegates elect the State Student Delegates of their School District to the State Student Legislature. State Student Delegates elect the State Student Governor and Federal Student Senators from somebody of high-enough Rank.
Student Body elects their State Student Electors of sufficient Rank to an odd-numbered Electoral College as opposed to the youth wings of political parties simply appointing them. The Student Body also elects Delegates of sufficient Rank to be the Federal Student Representatives in their UFSE Congress of Councils. An odd-number of State Student Electors vote on an approved pool of Student Presidents and Student Vice Presidents of sufficient Rank for the US Congress of Councils to vote for one of the three most-voted Student President and Student Vice President by the Student Electoral College.
In Alexander Hamilton’s America, we do not care how much Geld somebody has and whether somebody is born into the right family with the right political connections. We care more about whether each officeholder, from the youngest high school student to the President of the United States, have demonstrated their ability to lead and govern based on their rank and achievements. What happens in the UFSE Student Government can be replicated in the US Municipal, State, and Federal Governments, realizing Council Democracy as it was intended by Federalists and Anti-Federalists alike and capable of being free from Jeffersonianism.
Federalist Party and Hamiltonian Federalism
We can expect the Federalist Party to exert near-complete control of Hamiltonian America’s Federal, State and Municipal governments, with its youth wing exerting near-complete control of the UFSE. I say “near-complete control” because, unlike the Democratic-Republican Party, the Federalist Party can and will allow other parties to join its United Front as part of a functioning Council Democracy. It is also possible for the Federal government, under Hamiltonianism, to consider reforming the Nixon-era Federal Election Campaign Act (FECA) of 1972 and by extension the Federal Election Commission. Much like the Internal Revenue Service, the Federal Election Commission’s activities also change because of the Work-Standard.
Under the Work-Standard, we are presented with the difficult challenge of liquidating the last insolvent vestiges of Jeffersonian Parliamentarianism inside of Congress. Examples include campaign financing, gerrymandering, senatorial filibustering, reconciliation voting, corporate and billionaire donors, lobbyism, entryism, special interests and subversive foreign influences. Everything begins and ends with the issue of who or what funds every political party.
Party Finance: FECA and AASA
Courtesy of the Internal Revenue Service, the Federal Election Commission will be able to tell us how much Geld is being spent on the political activities of the Federalist Party. Expect something similar to the following chart for any other party that manages to gain political power in the US:
As the above chart demonstrates, the Federalist Party’s Conservative, Nationalist and Socialist Factions are currently the most powerful. After those three are the Traditionalist and Environmentalist Factions, Statist and Ultramontane Factions, Anarch and Authoritarian Factions.
Our Federalist President, Vice President and Speaker of the House can each support one or all of the Factions by favoring their congressional proposals under Hamiltonian Federalist Socialism. Supporting any or all Factions will allow the Federalist Party to define its current party line according to whichever Faction is the most powerful at the moment. The key to ensuring unity in the Party is an Americanization of Democratic Centralism because Council Democracy is capable of facilitating it more efficiently than a Parliamentary Democracy without causing Federal government shutdowns and Congressional gridlock and partisanship.
Unity in the Freedom of Thought, Unity in the Freedom of Action–Democratic Centralism done the American Way. The Geld that each Faction receives from the Federal Election Commission is to be spent on Party literature and media, offices and buildings controlled by the Party, Party youth and female wings, think tank institutes for intellectuals, and so forth. By reforming FECA, the Federalist Party ensures that allocations for its own Party activities will only take place between the end of an old Congress and the beginning of a new Congress.
In Hamiltonian America, the political activities and financing fall under the auspices of the Federal government. Parties allowed to run for office will be permitted to receive a set sum of Geld. Once they have their party members in office, they will be allowed under FECA to contribute Arbeit and generate Geld from the dissemination of propaganda and literature. The Intent is to minimize as many external influences while also providing opportunities for parties to sustain themselves and avoid doing unwanted favors for anyone like the Federalist Party or billionaires and corporations.
The Alien and Seditions Act (AASA), passed by Congress under the Federalist Party, will be reformed to address new-old Hamiltonian realities. Any political party membership with an Explicit Intent of overthrowing the United States ought to be deemed as a “Clear and Present Danger to these United States.” Anyone who happens to be trapped in the wrong party is welcome to leave that party.
A good example of a party that has in fact posed a genuine Clear and Present Danger to the Union and should therefore be ineligible for Federal funding is the Democratic-Republican Party, as evidenced by their infamous “Principles of ‘98” in the “Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions.” This is exactly what I meant when I previously questioned over whether Kentucky and Virginia are actual US States: are they British Commonwealths or are they US States? George Washington, Patrick Henry, and Alexander Hamilton had justifiable reasons to suspect that Thomas Jefferson and his protégé James Madison (and by extension, James Monroe) were plotting to overthrow the Federal government in 1798, which they eventually succeeded by the 1800s, culminating in the destruction of the original Federalist Party in 1824. The “Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions” would later go on to become part of the legal justifications for the Southern States to secede from the Union over the Slavery issue in the Civil War.
Party Finance: The Greater Square Deal
I am fairly certain that, even in a Socialist world order, the Federalist Party and the Federal government are still going to have to deal with a plethora of various different parties in the US. Without the Jeffersonians and the Democratic-Republican Party, there is no doubt that American politics will become just as interesting as international politics at the World State Organization (WSO). All kinds of Socialisms are going to return back to life thanks to the Work-Standard, and the US needs to be prepared to take on the Command Responsibility of what is clearly not an “Unintended Consequence” of the Work-Standard.
Any political party besides the Federalist Party need to gain the trust and respect of the Federal government, specifically the Federal Election Commission. Its party membership must be willing to further the interests of the Union before becoming eligible for any Federal funding. All of the Factions inside the Federalist Party are unanimous about this arrangement under FECA because they too need to trust them because Hamiltonianism cannot afford a repeat of the “Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions.”
Theodore Roosevelt had once described the Hamiltonian way of dealing with other Socialisms in “Where We Can Work with Socialists” and “Where We Cannot Work with Socialists.” The Federal Election Commission under the reformed FECA should distinguish them as “Category I,” “Category II,” “Category III,” and “Category IV”:
- Category I: Can we trust those Green Socialists and Constitutional Nationalists from the Green and Constitution Parties respectively? Can we trust the various smaller parties scattered throughout the US whose sole purpose was to oppose the policies of the Democratic-Republican Party?
- Category II: Can we trust the Scientific Socialists to support the Socialism in One Country of Stalinism and reject Trotskyism and its “Permanent Revolution” insofar as Trotskyism is antithetical to the purposes of the Union and Hamiltonianism in particular?
- Category III: Can we trust the Pan-Germanic Socialists to reject the racialism and antisemitism of Hitlerism and Strasserism insofar as those two are also antithetical to the purposes of the Union and Hamiltonianism in particular?
- Category IV: Does America have political parties dedicated to animal or cannabis rights, known National Communisms like Castroism, Maoism, or Ho Chi Minh Thought, Technocrats and Pirates concerned over Intellectual Property Rights, Bolivarian Federalists, and so forth? Can we trust any of these people to further the interests of the Union?
If the party membership in question can be trusted by the Federal government and the Federalist Party, they must be willing to uphold the Intent of their Oath of Office just like everyone else:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this Obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the Duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”
[N.B.: Due to the length of several Amendments attached in the US Constitution almost rivaling that of the ‘1977 Soviet Amendments’ to aspects of the 1936 Soviet Constitution in the Soviet Union under Leonid Brezhnev, I have been forced to create another SMP Compendium entry. This is not a joke: the final portion of Part IV literally turned out to be about as long as Part IV itself because of the vague language employed by certain US Amendments. See SMP Compendium Conclusion: The Greater America Amendment.]
