As an essential organizational blueprint, the recently founded Trans-American Alliance for a National Consensus (TANC) “Electorate Legislative Consortium” released its draft of the “National Alliance Renewal Act” (NARA) as proposed federal legislation for the review and support of leading academics, other civic-/private-sector leaders and, ultimately, elected Congressional and Executive branch representatives.
The release of the National Alliance Renewal Act marks the opening chapter in a petition signing campaign (please visit www.transamericanalliance.org for upcoming details on how citizens can participate in this grassroots initiative). Positioned as a roadmap, NARA provides specific guidelines and language for the proposed enactment of a 28th Amendment to the Constitution, effectively establishing TANC as a binding, complementary fourth “Electorate Branch” (of the U.S. Government) — based out of a permanent, localized university/college-sponsored legislative assembly.
“The preliminary authorship of NARA is part of a critical first step in presenting the proposed legislation to the entire American electorate as a way to plant the seeds for a new, ultimate extension of ‘direct democracy’ in this country,” said Michael A. Freeman, TANC's Executive Director. “In keeping with the democratic spirit of our Founding Fathers, NARA lays a propositional foundation for updating of our nearly 222-year-old Constitution with a new form of direct democratic participation by everyday American citizens — to assist the established Legislative and Executive branches of the federal government in reaching true “consensus-building” domestic socio-economic legislation.”
Intent on mitigating and contradicting the influence of most lobbyists and some special interest groups based out of Washington, D.C., TANC’s overriding goal — in holding localized committee hearings and authoring proposed “Reform Bills” — is to complement Congressional efforts and free our elected representatives from the divisive, conflicting agendas and frequently corruptive practices of accepting election campaign contributions (either legal or sometimes illicit) from some powerful special interest groups and lobbyists.
