Section 5: Divert the funds that would have went to maintaining our current military operations and foreign policy to the Nations infrastructure and all other funds should be cut from the Federal budget and the deficit should be decreased.
Section 6: Start our own international coalition where countries who desire military and financial aid from the United States will leave any foreign obligations they may have and adopt the US Constitution.
Section 7: After a nation adopts the US Constitution and joins our coalition, the process of statehood for that nation shall begin as follows;
A. After the adoption of the US Constitution, that nation will wait two presidential terms, eight years, before starting an annual poll among that nation's voting population.
B. That annual poll will ask the question if the population desires to become a state within the United States.
C. Once there are four consecutive years where 2/3 of the nation's total voting population votes in favor of statehood then the US Congress's foreign policy committee will examine that nation and determine how many states that nation will become. Regarding the poll votes, 2/3 of the total voting population must be in favor of statehood not just 2/3 of the people who ended up voting.
D. After the US Congress's foreign policy committee determines the number of states that the nation will become, that nation's congress will draw the state lines and vote in favor with 2/3 of their congress.
E. After the nation's congress draws the state lines in a resolution that resolution will be sent to the US Congress for review. After the foreign policy committee's majority votes in favor of the state lines, a bill will be sent to Congress to admit that nation, and the states it is divided into, into the Union.
