Beginning of excerpt (this is Article 7, the part most relevant to atheist morality):

 

Article 7: the Senate of the Federation

 

§ 7.0.0 The Individual and the rights retained by them shall enjoy Official representation by the Senate whose primary role is to act as the sole Constitutional authority to delegate or revoke at it's will the seating and authority under this Constitution of Officials of branches of the Federation government exercising powers enumerated in this Constitution and in accordance with this Article of this Constitution. Nothing in this Article should be implied to construe Senate power to create or revoke Law, or to otherwise exercise direct governing powers, except as specifically and partially provided under the rights and powers so described for the Senate in this Article of this Constitution.

Article 7 - Section 1

 

§ 7.1.1 All exercise of remaining powers herein granted to make, amend or defeat Law shall be solely vested in the Senate of the Federation, which shall consist of Senators chosen directly by equal suffrage of all Individuals of the Federation; provided, no person shall cast a vote for any Senator who has not been twelve years a citizen of the Federation.

§ 7.1.2 The Parliament shall pass no Law modifying or replacing, to the extent of their generality in Rule of Law, the understood definitions, syntactical meanings or grammatical meanings within this Constitution as informed by the present standards of the English language such as to adversely prejudice the rights enumerated to or otherwise held by any Individual under this Constitution. Stare decisis notwithstanding, all Equity in Law and Economics issued within the Federation shall bias to the favor of Individual rights and liberties wherever an alternative may present.

Article 7 - Section 2

 

§ 7.2.1 The Senate shall be composed of members chosen every second year by Individuals of the several States.

§ 7.2.2 No Individual shall be a Senator who shall not have been twelve years a citizen of the Federation or who has previously served a total of four years or greater as a Senator of the Federation.

§ 7.2.3 Senators shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of Individuals in each State. The actual enumeration shall be made within three years after the first meeting of the Parliament of the Federation and within every subsequent term of ten years, in such manner as the Senate shall by Law direct. The number of Senators shall not exceed one for every one million, but each State shall have at least two Senators.

§ 7.2.4 Each State of this Union shall enact and enforce State law to qualify each Senator elected from each respective State. Such qualification shall be limited strictly to the moral and ethical standing of the Senate candidate; derived of whatever moral standards the Individuals of that State find appropriate. No other State, nor the Federation itself, shall have any authority to challenge this qualification.

§ 7.2.5 When vacancies happen in the representation from any State, the Executive authority thereof shall issue Writs of Election to fill such vacancies.

§ 7.2.6 The Senate shall choose their Elder Senator and other Officers.

§ 7.2.7 No candidate, former or current lawful delegate of the Federation may receive assistance from any entity in their selection or election as lawful delegate of the Federation except where such assistance is paid in full at market value by said lawful delegate and Individual donors acting strictly as Individuals.

Article 7 - Section 3

 

§ 7.3.1 No other Bills outside the type and kind defined in this Article shall originate in the Senate.

§ 7.3.2 The Senate shall have exclusive power to exercise Right of Interdiction. Upon a four-fifths majority of members of the Senate favoring the rejection of any Bill, and if rendered during but not after the 10 day period in which the House of the Executor may consider a Bill for veto, said Bill is defeated and shall not become law regardless if it is vetoed, not at the time signed or signed in the affirmative at any time by the House of the Executor.

§ 7.3.3 The Senate shall have exclusive power, as in and limited by Section 4 of this Article of this Constitution, to exercise Right of Conquest. The right to overthrow an existing Official Family by force is a right unto which all Individuals are entitled under this Constitution if, before any action to dissolve, impede or remove any Official Family from power, it is executed upon the conditions provided in Section 4 of this Article of this Constitution.

§ 7.3.4 The Senate shall have exclusive power to exercise Right of Arms. The Senate shall retain exclusive powers to regulate, define, classify or otherwise create Law pertaining to Individual, combat arms - to include all such arms which the Federation may obtain by purchase or other means and which the Federation may employ, military or civilian. Any Bill exercising these powers shall be enacted and obtain in Law by a two-thirds majority vote of the Senate, any other organ or House of the Federation or any other authority in the jurisdiction of the Federation notwithstanding.

§ 7.3.5 In any case, the Senate shall pass no Law, nor shall any lawful delegate of the Federation take any action of commission or omission, infringing upon the right of any Individual to keep and bear Individual, combat arms of a kind and type appropriate for Right of Conquest; and which shall, at the Individual's discretion, be of precisely the same make, type and lot as the arms in common combatant use, or in use by the Federal Militia defined in § 7.4.12 of this Constitution, or would likely be in common combatant use, by the real or hypothetical Armed Forces of the Federation.

Article 7 - Section 4

 

§ 7.4.1 The Right of Conquest, if and when exercised, shall proceed as follows. A vote to impeach an Official family may be proposed by a concurrence of one-half of the States of this Union or upon a petition of Individuals numbering at least two-thirds of the population of the Federation as enumerated in the most recent Census. Within 90 days of said proposal or passage of petition the Senate shall vote on the matter holding in that period whatever hearings as are necessary for the defense of the Official Family in question. The Official Family shall enjoy the right of discovery for a period not to exceed 90 days and to be established in public procedure by the Senate. If the impeachment is passed by a four-fifths majority of the Senate and no other impeachment against an Official Family lays unresolved at the time of the vote, the impeachment is promoted to an Order to Surrender the House at the Will of the Senate. If it is not so passed or the Senate fails to vote within 90 days, it is defeated.

§ 7.4.2 Upon the passage of two years since the Order to Surrender the House at the Will of the Senate was passed all other Houses shall either concur or dissent and render their decisions public. If they all concur, the Official Family so Ordered and their heirs shall be permanently denied all powers enumerated under this Constitution and shall permanently remove from office, fully surrendering their Offical Status under this Constitution and vacacting all government premises. If not, the Order to Surrender the House at the Will of the Senate is challenged for further review. Failure to provide a response within the allocated two years shall count as concurrence of the House failing to respond.

§ 7.4.3 If a Order to Surrender the House at the Will of the Senate is challenged - vetoed - by an Official Family other than the one so Ordered by same, the Senate may override all Houses by; a public referendum of equal suffrage of all Individuals of the Federation resulting in a four-fifths majority favoring - that is, confirming - the Order to Surrender the House at the Will of the Senate and; a single vote of two-thirds majority of the Senate favoring like confirmation. If the Order is thusly confirmed, the Official Family so Ordered and their heirs shall be permanently denied all powers enumerated under this Constitution and shall permanently remove from office, fully surrendering their Offical Status under this Constitution and vacacting all government premises. If not, the Order is reversed and the Family so charged prevails and retains all powers status quo ante.

§ 7.4.4 If any Official family upon full confirmation as supra of the Order to Surrender the House at the Will of the Senate shall fail to do so in deed within 30 days of final confirmation, the Senate shall vote as soon as circumstances allow to exercise Right of Conquest. Upon a one-tenth minority favoring, Right of Conquest shall perform under the leadership and control of the Senate Elder in consultation with the House of the Executor - if and only if the House of the Executor is not the one in defiance of the Order - by any means the Senate Elder may choose. No appeals, delay or alternative actions shall intervene. The Senate shall then Officially Issue the Order to Surrender the House at the Will of the Senate to the Federal Militia provided for in § 7.4.12 of this Constitution; and each person of such removed Official family who has surrendered as combatant shall enjoy immunity from further prosecution, punishments or detention and/or confinement and shall enjoy the same rights and privileges of any private Individuals as guaranteed by this Constitution. However, nothing in this Section shall be construed to establish any restriction on the amount of force, including lethal force and property destruction, required by the Officials commissioned by the Senate, and where necessary in their judgment, to compel compliance with the Senate's Order.

§ 7.4.5 Should the House of the Executor be one of the Houses convicted and stripped of its powers, command of the Armed Forces of the Federation, and all Executive Authorities granted under this Constitution, shall be deduced in the following order of precedence to the first regnant House; the House of the Judiciary, the House of the Legislator, the House of the Fiduciary and then to the Elder Senator.

§ 7.4.6 For the purposes of this Constitution, the Controlling Generation of an Official family of any House of the Federation shall be defined as that generation whose Head of House is the great grandparent of the earliest ancestor whose ancestral designation is biologically accurate - of the current Head of House of that Official family.

§ 7.4.7 For the purposes of this Constitution, a Powers Ratio shall be defined as the ratio of in-laws having never been members of any Official family to the number of Heads of House of that Official family, both likewise calculated from a beginning specified generation to an end specified generation, as in a closed interval and to obtain any arithmetically consequent real number.

§ 7.4.8 For the purposes of this Constitution, the Powers Ratio of any Official family calculated from their initial generation seated to any House of the Federation up to their generation preceding their Controlling Generation shall be denominated in Law as the Index of Powers Exercised; and this value shall update immediately upon any event causing arithmetic change in this value.

§ 7.4.9 For the purposes of this Constitution, the Powers Ratio of any Official family calculated from their initial generation seated to any House of the Federation to their present generation, or seventy seven years since their Controlling Generation's end of Head of House, whichever occurs last, shall be denominated in Law as the Index of Powers Foregone; and this value shall update immediately upon any event causing arithmetic change in this value.

§ 7.4.10 Where any two Official families of any two Houses of the Federation shall simultaneously attain in the one case an Index of Powers Exercised twice or more that of the other case's Index of Powers Foregone; then shall the Official family obtaining to the Index of Powers Exercised thus described suffer immediate removal from Office and status as an Official family which the Senate shall Order satisfied within 90 days of the attainment of the twice or greater ratio value herein described and attained; and should that Offical family so Ordered fail to comply fully, the Senate shall Order the Federal Militia, acting under Its authority, to physically enforce compliance; and where these events shall make, the Senate shall nominate and elect an Official family whose candidate members shall have never been members of any House of the Federation to replace the family so removed, placing them in the seat of the House of the Federation so subsequently vacated.

§ 7.4.11 Upon passage of any impeachment of an Official family of any House of the Federation, or upon any enforcement of Senate Orders provided for in this Section, it shall be the Fundamental General Order to the Armed Forces of the Federation, without explicit Order given, but rather given by this Order reposed in this Constitution, to cease and desist in all actions real, imagined, verbal or actual, lawful or unlawful, regarding any matter associated with this Section of the Constitution. And all Officers of the Armed Forces shall, upon commission, swear upon Oath to uphold and defend this Constitution and specifically, to make Oath of obedience and loyalty to this Fundamental General Order to the Armed Forces of the Federation.

§ 7.4.12 The Federation shall at all times maintain a Federal Militia whose members are chosen by random lot from the entire population of the Federation - but to include equal numbers from each State - and who, if they voluntarily accept their commission or enlistment, shall be counted as a servicemember of same. The Federal Militia shall determine its own procedures, rules and methods of operation to include the sole power to determine a means of discharge or release from the Federal Militia, or for accepting unsolicited volunteers for service, provided such procedures ensure equal recruitment amongst the States. Each State of this Union shall provide in equal proportion from its respective Treasury appropriate funding for the Federal Militia. The Federal Militia shall regulate and retain control of access by its servicemembers to all equipment and arms for the exercise of their duties. The Senate Elder shall be Commander in Chief of the Federal Militia and shall appoint its Officers.

Article 7 - Section 5

 

§ 7.5.1 Upon any case held in the House of the Judiciary or any of its inferior courts, any Individual party therein shall retain sole and unilateral, total defense by Right of Challenge; to wit, the Individual right to challenge any portion of Law not favorable to their defense which they charge was fashioned with the assistance of any delegate of the House of the Legislator, the House of the Fiduciary, the Senate or any combination thereof and where in the opinion of that court said portion in question shall contradict, undermine or extend beyond the instructions or parameters so delegated by any of the Houses, Senate or any combination thereof in the orginal drafting of that portion; and where such content is precisely defined as in §1.3.6. And, if in that case the charge shall, in the opinion of the court in question, sustain victory in Right of Challenge, that portion of Law and any other portions necessarily conjoined under compliance to that portion, shall be null and rendered unconstitutional, shall have no standing in the case presenting, and shall not thence exist as Law or Performance in the Federation or any place subject to Its jursidction.

§ 7.5.2 Wherever not dimishing or exceeding the force or effect of §4.2.3 and §4.6.11 of this Constitution, the Federation shall enjoy all immunities and privileges which pertain strictly to the formal form and function of a central federalist system - its general supremacy of legislative sovereignty over any State - with the exception of any Federally sovereign act that shall, in the judgement of the House of the Legislator which they've defined by uniform Law, if for one State then for all, infringe upon the popular, deeply ensconced and historically long traditions of a State's culture or religion whose relegation of standing and effect would manifestly be traumatic to the majority of the State's people and a shock to their popular conscience. In any case, the rights enumerated of the Individual in Article 7 of this Constitution shall enjoy favor and bias in any such exception.

§ 7.5.3 Law and Equity under the Federation and within its jurisdiction shall uniformly neither furnish nor disfurnish any particular spiritual or religious perspective or any mutually voluntary communication between two or more Individuals; regardless of sender, recipient or nature of content; and expressly denying any Official organ or Individual in Official capacity the right to decline communication as in a one-way message or multiplex manner between any Individual to said Official organ, Individual or Individuals, regardless of it's nature; except as the broader security of the Federation may require as and how provided by §7.10.1 of this Constitution.

§ 7.5.4 No Court of the Federation shall instruct, guide, require, or compel any juror to reckon, calculate or think contrary to any conscience of belief they hold, regardless of the Laws of the Federation or the provisions of this Constitution, and the conscience of belief of any Juror within the jurisdiction of the Federation shall be held Supreme, Sans Pareil, to all Law and Equity in the Federation. Nothing in this provision shall be construed to deny any Court the authority to require, in any final finding of a Jury, that such a finding comply with all Laws of the Federation and this Constitution; provided, the requirement admits of a Jurors conscience of belief in the formulation of a finding thereof.

§ 7.5.5 A Jury in all Courts of the Federation shall be composed of twelve Individuals, three of whom are chosen by a double-blind, random process wherein the selection of the Juror is immutable, and whose universe for selection shall be defined solely on the basis of the full extent of the given Court's physical jurisdiction. The remaining nine members shall be chosen in a like manner initially, after which they may, if the Court agrees, be struck from the Jury and replaced by another Juror chosen in like manner, and this process may repeat, provided the first three selected, immutable Jurors remain. Nothing in this provision shall be construed to deny the Court the option of replacing any one or combination of the initial, immutably selected Jurors if, for any reason outside the Juror's and Court's control, that Juror is not able to serve in said capacity, or if serving in that capacity would deny that Juror's rights under this Constitution; and provided, the same selection process is employed for each replacement. In any case, no Court or lawful delegate of the Federation shall tamper in any manner with the composition of a Jury so as to disfurnish this provision.

§ 7.5.6 No lawful delegate of the Federation in the execution of Official duties shall act as to furnish nor disfurnish any cause or purpose other than an Official duty and not by necessity or practical gain associated with said Official act.

§ 7.5.7 All acts cited in Article 7 of this Constitution as acts permissible or denied by a lawful delegate of the Federation shall serve prima facie in the role of tort for any civil case brought against the torfeasor, regardless of whether the plaintiff or the torfeasor is an official delegate of the Federation.

Article 7 - Section 6

 

§ 7.6.1 No lawful delegate of the Federation shall trespass, enter upon, or otherwise extract information from within, the habitual place of residence of any Individual for any reason, at any time or under any circumstances notwithstanding any consent or invitation provided by that Individual; except as provided for in §7.6.2 of this Constitution.

§ 7.6.2 Only upon probable cause of the commission of an ongoing crime requiring entry or trespass, or upon a signed and notarized invitation from an Individual, shall a lawful delegate of the Federation trespass, enter upon, or otherwise extract information from within, the habitual place of residence of that Individual provided; the delegate upon the case of an invitation shall hail to conduct Official business or private affairs, and adding that in such a case no signature or notary of invitation shall be required, or provided; the delegate is committed upon active pursuit of an Individual or Individuals he or she shall, under exigency, reasonably surmise to be a danger to the rights of another Individual as enumerated in this Constitution or provided; a court of the proper jurisdiction shall issue an order to protect an Individual's said rights who, it is found under oath or affirmation, is presently located therein the residence and is presently in danger of serious injury or death or held against their will or provided; the clear and present national security of the Federation will not admit of observing any provisions of this Section or §7.6.1 of this Constitution. And any act to evade justice by exercise of an Individual's sovereignty of abode mentioned supra shall, in all cases, prejudice their guilt in absentia for any crime for which they might be charged.

§ 7.6.3 Only upon probable cause for trespass upon a private property not serving as any habitual place of residence shall any lawful delegate of the Federation enter upon without consent, or otherwise extract information from within without consent, any such private property subject to the jursidiction of the Federation; provided that probable cause is supported upon an oath or affirmation and that, exclusive of all else, the actions to be taken upon entry, things to be examined or observed, or things to be held temporarily by authority as according to Law, are clearly listed thereon.

§ 7.6.4 No lawful delegate of the Federation shall act upon any oath, affirmation, or order of a court, until the Individual or their interest of who is the object of the oath, affirmation or order has the means and time, within a reasonable standard set by Law, to learn its content and verify its authenticity as having been issued by legitimate authority.

§ 7.6.5 No lawful delegate of the Federation may knowingly engage in deception of any Individual when executing any official act by misrepresenting the rules of law, their legal rights, their legal status or any other legal matter unless authorized by an order of the court of proper jurisdiction where the deception regarding Rule of Law is to occur and stating what deception regarding Rule of Law is to be used and providing the investigative or legal necessity for such action.

Article 7 - Section 7

 

§ 7.7.1 Any and all forms of punishment by any lawful delegate of the Federation, to include all forms of Capital punishment or penalties of death, shall not exist in the Federation or any place subject to Its jurisdiction; except as the House of the Legislator may by Law direct death or injury be lawful as an act not of punishment but of clear, present and exigent necessity for the security of the Federation or for the public order wherever said circumstances do not admit of any lesser application of force.

§ 7.7.2 The right of any Individual to obtain necessity in absolute defense to prejudice bias for life generally, whether acting Officially or privately, secondary to bias for the lives of themselves or their consanguinity shall not be infringed.

§ 7.7.3 Nothing in this Article should be construed to deny any lawful delegate of the Federation, in a manner prescribed by law, the right to confine for any period of time any Individual adjudicated and convicted in a court of law of the Federation as a threat to the public safety, to themselves, the Federation or any other protected entity, object or property as may be defined by Law.

§ 7.7.4 Nothing in this Article should be construed to make unlawful any acts of physical or psychological harm to an Individual that may present as a minor and reasonable but practically necessary consequence to arrest, detention, confinement, questioning or medical treatment; nor shall injuries or deaths consequent to physical resistance or a presenting threat to authority acting in Rule of Law be necessarily contrary to this Constitution.

Article 7 - Section 8

 

§ 7.8.1 The right of the Individual to be secure and safe in their sexual and/or emotional affections - regardless of their nature - and to privacy in their residences in their sexual, medical and psychological behaviors, features, passions, conditions, beliefs, conscience, and words shall not be infringed - or otherwise held against them in abeyance of certain rights or privileges of Law - by any lawful delegate of the Federation.

§ 7.8.2 The right of the Individual to create a natural family, and to procreate in any biological manner, with anyone of their choosing who consents in free will, without interference, and to, under the law, enjoy the presumption of protections necessary for the maintenance and health of their family, shall not be infringed; excluding the provisions given in §7.8.3 and §7.10.3 of this Constitution.

§ 7.8.3 As exception to §7.8.2, the House of the Legislator shall exercise sole power, to specifically exclude individual States, to regulate the number of offspring any one Individual may knowingly produce, but if so regulating for one then for all Individuals in the jurisdiction of the Federation likewise and if for one State then for all. Notwithstanding this Section, the Federation's power to limit one's count of offspring shall extend to no fewer than two surviving offspring per biological couple.

§ 7.8.4 The right of the Individual to eschew procreating or partnering free of discrimination for same shall not be infringed. The right of any Individual to consensually utilize means of influencing natural consequences to the sexual act, to include means of preventive birth control, shall not be infringed. The right of any Individual to procreate without a traditional family and with the presumption of the same protections necessary for the maintenance and health of their partner or partners and their consanguinity, shall not be infringed.

§ 7.8.5 The right of the Individual, and of any Individual, to proclaim and bear out a union with any other Individual or Individuals, regardless of their biological capacity to procreate, and to enjoy the same uniform presumption of protections which existed naturally before the union and are necessary for the maintenance and health of that union in Rule of Law in the Federation, shall not be infringed.

§ 7.8.6 The power to establish in Law responsibilities in any declared union or family, upon the one or one's making the union, an exigible of union or family wherever those responsibilities are not modest, reasonable and manifestly and scientifically pertinent to the health and durability of the family or union, shall not exist within the Federation or to any place subject to Its jurisdiction.

§ 7.8.7 No individual subject to the jurisdiction of the Federation shall be made to suffer the loss of physical and legal custody of their natural child provided; the court of proper jurisdiction can find no overwhelming, incontrovertible moral necessity to do so. In cases of mother and father residing separately, both mother and father shall thus be presumed to have equal custodial rights, including equal physical exposure and time with the child. No court of the Federation shall issue court orders constituting more than five percent of its total custody rulings per year whereby mother and father are not awarded equal time with the child.

§ 7.8.8 The right of any Individual to alter or modify their sex, whether by natural or unnatural means, and without discrimination, and upon the cause of their genuine conscience of gender wherever they so aver, shall not be infringed.

§ 7.8.9 The right of any Individual who is twelve years of age or older to obtain full standing in Equity and Law as bearing full legal capacity in all matters of Law and Economics shall not be infringed. Nothing in this Section shall be taken to construe that legal guardians of the same may not make motion to the Court of appropriate jurisdiction to constrain the presumption of legal capacity for any such Individual less than sixteen years of age or who, for reasons other than chronological age and/or maturity, is found by a jury of their peers to lack capacity.

§ 7.8.10 No Individual who has attained the age of twelve years or greater, and who shall not be found by a jury of their peers to lack capacity, shall be denied the rights guaranteed generally by this Constitution, nor shall any age of any Individual greater than twelve years - to explicitly include any advanced age - be held in abeyance of any righs or privileges guaranteed under this Constitution. In accordance with this provision, the Federation shall act uniformly not to disfurnish the means of any Individual twelve years of age or greater - to again explicitly include any advanced age - to earn a respectable living, engage in commerce, pursue an education or otherwise realize the same pursuits generally guaranteed to any other Individual. Nor shall any female be denied the same rights, privileges and presumptions of worthy pursuits on account of the pregnancy, early care or other legitimate obligations to her consanguinity.

§ 7.8.11 Any Individual who, prior to having attained the age of sixteen years, was found to lack capacity by a jury of their peers, shall, by dint of this provision, be recognized as bearing full legal capacity in all Law and Equity in the Federation upon attaining the age of sixteen years. Nothing in this provision shall be construed to deny any Court of the appropriate jurisdiction the authority to revoke the legal capacity of an Individual after attaining the age of sixteen years if so determined by a jury of their peers.

§ 7.8.12 No mother or father shall be denied the rights guaranteed under this Constitution on account of the pregnancy, in the case of a female, or the early care of their consanguinity in the case of both males and females.

§ 7.8.13 Any Individual within the jurisdiction of the Federation who shall have suffered a clear and present loss or denial of General Equity as determined by a Court of the appropriate jurisdiction on account of their sex, shall be entitled to full legal remedy for the same from the tortfeasor as said Court may find.

§ 7.8.14 Excepting such cases as arising in § 7.9.11 of this Constitution, any Individual who shall enter any Court of the Federation for any reason shall enjoy the right to a finding of General Equity by a jury of their peers; and wherever the physiological characterstics of one's sex shall solely wax material, by a likewise same-sex jury of their peers.

§ 7.9.5 The Federation shall guarantee to all Individuals in all law and equity the presumption of equal standing under the law and full legal capacity - with all the rights implied or codified in this Constitution - unless and until a feature other than income, assets, gender, religion, conscience, beliefs, chronological age, sexual affections, race or ethnicity is proven and adjudicated by a jury of their peers to qualify them as unequal or lacking capacity under the law.

§ 7.9.6 The right of the Individual to have and to hold private property shall not be infringed.

§ 7.9.7 The right of the Individual to be free of coercion or undue influence in relinquishing private property to public use, shall not be infringed. This shall not be construed to preclude the exercise of imminent domain for worthy public use and wherever it entails no coercion or undue influence.

§ 7.9.8 No Individual shall be held to answer for a crime for which they may be detained or lose liberties without first being indicted by a Grand Jury, excepting such cases arising in the Armed Forces of the Federation, nor shall any Individual be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of detention or loss of liberties whether explicitly or by the de facto conviction of violation of 2 or more laws of similar nature; nor shall any Individual be compelled in any court case to be a witness against himself or herself, nor be deprived of liberty.

§ 7.9.9 In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and internal political division wherein the crime shall have been committed, which division shall have been previously ascertained by State law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him or her; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his or her favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his or her defense.

§ 7.9.10 No Individual shall be compelled to suffer any financial loss on account of being charged with a crime or misdemeanor in any court of the Federation if they are duly found innocent of the charge that directly or indirectly caused the loss.

§ 7.9.11 In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed the product of the smallest current Federal currency and 10,000, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the Federation, than according to the rules of the common law. In any case, any common law within the Federation or any place subject to Its jurisdiction shall bias initially to be a matter of first impression upon the court, and only secondarily shall precedent wax material.

§ 7.9.12 No lawful delegate of the Federation shall exercise authority outside that provided by Rule of Law and equity in law as established as such and as provided in this Constitution.

§ 7.9.13 Neither primogeniture as a practice nor dynastic inheritance of property, rights or privileges not granted Individuals uniformly shall exist within the Federation or any place subject to Its jurisdiction. Nothing in this Section shall be construed to deny the designation of an Individual, if that designation be the only thing inherited, as a member of any House of the Federation as provided in this Constitution.

§ 7.9.14 Excessive bail for release from confinement shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed.

§ 7.9.15 Excepting the provisions of §1.1.4, the right of free association shall not be infringed.
