How would you write Egypt's new constitution?

Egypt's constitution has been suspended. They will be writing a new constitution or amending it to fit a 21st century Egypt.

We're trying to hold on to our own constitution. What suggestions would you offer to Egypt to help remake their constitution by example? So they wouldn't fall into the same situation we are in.

Along with any other suggestions you feel would be appropriate for a 21st century type government.

Randomly Term limits Anybody

Randomly

Term limits

Anybody in office is impeachable with proof

No unreasonable searches without VERY clear, VERY precise, VERY good, VERY truthfull reason, with the very good and legal possibility to fire anyone who do not meet those terms

Direct input on laws and bills, when the people so wish, no question, it is sacred, and none passed with major opposition

Liars, broken promisses, FIRED

Every law, bill, written in such a way, that even the those who find it difficult to read can understand it completely

Keep laws and bills short, unless under extraodinary circumstances, IF needed, under the digression from both representatives and the people, if they let it be known

So much more, i hope egypt get very smart free spirited individuals to write it, even better if the people can participate in its forming

That's not how life works

The reason the powers that be remain in power is because they understand you have to have a road map and a plan in place and then you allow the useful idiots to do the destruction for you while you install the plan..

In this case, what we have is a UN oil dependant, and they will install their selected.

The plan was established long ago and the people of Egypt will lose, no hard feelings.. they didn't appreciate what they had, so they lost it.. went from the frying pan into the fire.

No government employee's salary shall exceed

the median wage of Egyptians working in the private sector.

Elections shall be by paper ballot only and be available in their entirety for the public record. All forms of electronic voting are forbidden.

Everyone shall be treated equally under the law. No action by government shall benefit particular groups or persons. Servicing positive rights by the government is forbidden.

All wars must be declared by the legislative branch. All aggressive uses of the military or any agent of the government shall be considered an act of war and fall under this provision. Legislation that defers this power to any other branch of government is forbidden.

The government is forbidden from installing military bases on foreign soil.

No central bank or version thereof shall ever be installed or codified. Legal tender laws are forbidden. All domestic currency must be of private origin.

Spying shall only target foreign individuals and entities that are perceived to be enemies of the state that are suspected of plotting violent acts against the state or the People.

*Copy and Paste the Bill or Rights*

Due process is defined to include a trial employing a jury of peers of the accused. It is forbidden for due process to be made a secret process.

Defendants and legal representatives thereof shall always have the opportunity to hear, see, and examine all evidence used against them in a court of law. Arguments of national security cannot be invoked to introduce arguments or evidence in secret with respect to defendants and legal representatives thereof. It is permitted that such a defendant or representative be sworn to secrecy under threat of perjury for revealing any such evidence, unless such evidence reveals acts that are injurious to this document. Instances of the latter must subsequently be proved in a court of law residing in a different district than the original court to be selected by the person or entity (or legal representatives thereof) revealing such evidence.

Persons or entities revealing state secrets that can reasonably be considered injurious to this document shall not be imprisoned or held by the state prior to a conviction by a jury trial. Further, it must be proved in said trial beyond a reasonable doubt that the revealer(s) had malintent aimed at aiding an enemy of the state AND that the information revealed was not injurious to this document. The location of trial shall be selected by the defendant or legal representative thereof.

These are a few of the things I would want to include. Of course, there may be better ways to word these concepts.

Adding to your point on war

During time of war the president must be on the battle field until the war has ceased.

-I think this would help deter senseless wars, I mean he is the commander and chief after all.

Put the Bill of Rights within the text of the Constitution....

itself, don't wait to add it.
