We endeavor to assist one another, in their time of need, that no person should suffer needlessly, not starve as a result of freedoms withheld from them. Their thirst for such freedoms as any person would so desire, will be freely quenched by every citizen for one another without demand or charge of any kind. For such, is the meaning of a “true democracy” pursuant to the words in this founding document of a new nation.
The ratification of this document, The Constitution of the United European Union, by fifteen states, shall be sufficient for the establishment of this Constitution between the States in their totality including the votes of all candidate states presently seeking inclusion into the United European Union.
