Article X, Section 4 of the Constitution of the State of Maine (not Maine constitution)

Courtesy of Lise from Maine

‘”The Legislature, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, may propose amendments to this Constitution; and when any amendment shall be so agreed upon, a resolution shall be passed and sent to the selectmen of the several towns, and the assessors of the several plantations, empowering and directing them to notify the inhabitants of their respective towns and plantations,in the manner prescribed by law, at their next annual meetings in the month of September, to give their votes on the question, whether such amendment shall be made; and if it shall appear that a majority of the inhabitants voting on the question are in favor of such amendment, it shall become “a part” (emphasis is mine) of this Constitution.”

It doesn’t say that the Constitution shall be “rearranged” nor does it say that certain words or phrases shall be “omitted” by the Chief Justice nor does it say that the “amendment” passed by the electors shall be “approved” by the Legislature (see the fraudulent 1875 resolve).

Key words to pay attention to: rearranged, certain words/phrases omitted, Chief Justice, and “approved” by the Legislature (this is code – legislatively made = roman civil law as opposed to the common law).

But it “DOES SAY” that the amendment that was passed shall “become a part” of this Constitution.

That means “added on” and NOT rearranged and omission of things.

A big distinction between what the original Constitution says and what this fraudulent, repugnant 1875 resolve says.

Hope this helps, and it is incorporated into my book.”

  1. Constitution of Maine is the original, isn’t it? At least my copy of the 1820 one is. I agree it’s not the “Maine Constitution” anyway.

  2. Thanks for all the info! Well worth the knowledge and time spending viewing! You are the best both of you!

  3. I second that emotion
