Consent is both a right and a power.
The Constitution and the Declaration of Independence draw their authority from our consent and our mutual pledge
(the Declaration is quoted only to show the public's consent to its authority).
From the Preamble (proposed for restoration, see Restoring the Preamble):
"We the People of the United States [...]
do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
"Done in convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present [...]"
From the Declaration of Independence:
"We hold these Truths to be self-evident,
[...] - That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men,
deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed.
[...] We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, [...]
do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies,
solemnly publish and declare [...]
And for the support of this Declaration, [...]
we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."
The United States must preserve the public's consent to governance.
When elections, appointments or acts of Congress or the Executive are being debated,
it can do this by solely funding provision of self-governance information.
