Constitutional Amendment Proposition: We The People Clause

Constitutional Amendment Proposition: We The People Clause

We are taking back the government...

It's high time for another amendment to the constitution. There are already several great proposals, including a Convention of the States to make it happen.

As I've been thinking about it, there are several things I would like to see in an amendment. Here are a few points to consider:

1. Preserve the Original Consitution: The amendments should reinforce or clarify the intent of the original constitution, not change it. Article 1, Section 9, paragraph 5 of the US Constitution says that there shall be no direct tax (income tax, property tax, etc.). The 16th Amendment Reversed this protection, and should never have been passed.
16thPermits Congress to levy an income tax without apportioning it among the states or basing it on the United States Census.July 12, 1909February 3, 19133 years
6 months
22 days

2. Power/Control: When you give government power, it does not like to give it back or reduce its influence. It's like a giant power suck. Case in point, the 27th Amendment was proposed to make sure that the Congress wouldn't give themselves raises, so it demanded that any raise given not take effect until after the next election. The result? It took 202 YEARS for a congress to finally ratify (agree) to the proposal.

The 27th: Wiki
27thDelays laws affecting Congressional salary from taking effect until after the next election of representatives.September 25, 1789May 5, 1992[5]202 years
7 months
10 days
3. Amendments should clarify the rights of the people and restrict the rights of the Government.



New Proposals

That being said, here are some of the things I'd like to see in a new Constitutional Amendment:


1. REPEAL THE 16TH AMENDMENT AND CLARIFY that no Tax, Levy, Fine, Fee, Ticket, or any other cost shall be laid on any individual person or entity or their property. This includes the removal and ban of all Income Taxes, Property Taxes, Traffic Tickets, Licencing Fees (driver's licenses, hunting licenses, or gun ownership licenses, etc.).


2. HARD TERM LIMITS should be enacted for 100% of elected officials. The current state of affairs is a direct result of "career politicians". These offices were meant to be held by "statesmen", who were people leaving the private sector to serve in the state for a period and then return to live under the laws they produced or preserved.

A. 2-Terms per office: No person shall hold any elected office at any level (Federal, State, County, City, or otherwise) for more than 2 terms in their lifetime.

B. 4-Terms per individual: No person shall hold any combination of elected offices for more than 4 terms.


3. HARD INCOME LIMITS: No elected official shall make more annually in total government compensation than the previous years US Household Median Income for the US Population as a whole; currently $43,585.00 annually.

4. REAFFIRM THE 2ND AMENDMENT: No laws shall be passed regarding gun ownership except where an actual crime using a gun has been committed by the restricted.

5. VICTIM REQUIREMENT: No law shall be passed or enforced making any activity illegal, nor shall any person or entity be prosecuted or jailed, except where a specific person/entity has caused a specific harm to a person's/entity's person or property. No government body shall be considered a person or entity, nor shall any government body be considered harmable under this protection.


I'll probably come back an updated this later... you have any ideas? Comment below!

Fatalism: When bad things happen

Fatalism is not the answer!

I've had no less than four or five conversations around this general topic recently, so I decided to say something about it. Although I have several friends I want to say this to, the primary audience for this speech today is me. I spent all of yesterday in a fatalistic funk. Today, I'm choosing to make a new choice.

You are not living the life you live because of fate. Period. 

God. The Stars. Fate. They did not create the hardships you face today. There were some factors outside of you that contributed, often in major ways. But you ultimately choose how you will respond from today forward, not Fate.
Fatalism: a doctrine that events are fixed in advance so that human beings are powerless to change them. Websters Fatalism is exactly the opposite of Truth. God empowers you, he does not disempower you. If you believe you are the way you are, living the life you live, because of Fate, you are believing a LIE of Satan. That lie is keeping you bound inste…

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

No Hiding... My Story

Why am I writing my story? So... here's the thing. The Pure Desire, Seven Pillars workbook asks me to write an addiction story. When I was __ this happened. Then this happened. Timeline style.

The workbook and videos also break down the limbic system, and how desires, fears, and auto-responses were mostly created early, before 6 years old, give or take.

I've been thinking about my history and timeline for years, wondering why I am the way I am. So this sounds like promising homework. I started in on paper, but the deep level I want to travel will take more space. I plan to outline every relevant (or possibly relevant) moment.

Also, I'm inspired to start again because of a KPBS special "Meet the Patels", in which Ravi Patel (as shown through the lens of his sister's (Geeta Patel's - Film Maker) camera. It's a long story, worth seeing. It showed the struggles of American dating vs the arranged or partially-arranged type marriage systems their culture us…

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see
http://www.darrellwolfe.com/2018/06/flavia-antoinette-wolfe-and-baby-wolfe.html?m=1

The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

The background leading up to this morning:


On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…
