Vote on The Regional Defence Act



  • The Regional Defence Act

    Senatus Populusque Romanus

    Counterproposition to the Regional Defence Act by the honourable People of Isis. Signed by both Consuls of the Holy Roman Empire, Consul Marcus Aemilius Scaurus and Consul Cnaeus Pompeius Magnus. Presented by Princeps Senatus Licinia Sextia and the legislative body of the Holy Roman Empire through it?s first Praetor Marcus Calpurnius Bibulus with approval of the Senate of Rome, the EPP-ED and the Tribunus Plebis Lucius Cornelius Cinna.

    Presented to the European parliament by pro-consul Marcus Porcius Cato Uticensis

    ?We, the sovereign nations of the European Union, in order to form a more cohesive bond between our peoples, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquillity, provide for a common defence, promote the general welfare, and to secure the blessings of democracy, liberty, and equality for ourselves and our posterity, establish this Constitution of the European Union.?

    The focus of the regional defence act should not be the possibility to wage war, but to preserve peace. The European Parliament and it?s member nations have a responsibility to serve and protect the citizens of the European Union, as common Europeans, not as citizens of individual nations. The national defence is a strict matter of domestic policies, and beyond this parliament to decide for.

    Violence and conflict has been a part of the human nature for countless generations, and no one could tell when the violence will end. The creation of this union was the beginning of a peaceful and prosperous future for this region and it?s people.
