I received a copy from the 'Secretary of State' of the
Constitution of the State of Washington.
In it the State is declared admitted into some Union by a
proclamation of the president of the United States, according
to the Enabling Act.
Does anyone know of a Public Law, where Congress admits the
State into the Union under the Constitution of the United States
of America, article IV, section 3 Where do I find the public laws of
In the preamble:
*** We, the people of the State of Washington, grateful to the Supreme Ruler
of the Universe for our liberties, do ordain this constitution. ***
If this is the document, that constitutes the compact, creating the body
politic of the State of Washington, is it not wrong to refer to this name
within the creating document?
"people of the State of Washington". Are people of the State? Subjects?
If only sovereign States can be admitted into the union of the Several States,
is it not an error in a State constitution to refer to the Constitution of the
United States as the supreme law of the land. Prior to admittance, the State
is sovereign, a nation among the family of nations, seeking admittance, and
able to carry on in it's sovereign capacity.
