5X5 Standard

The Problem:

Climate Change, resource depletion (US Peak Oil was in 1970), $22 trillion in Federal debt buying and defending foreign oil, sacrificing soldiers in perpetual oil-wars since 1991, oil-dollar funded terrorism, and disregard for eight Presidents calling for an end to foreign oil addiction are caused by Federal violations of Federal and State Constitutions (link).

The US Constitution Divided Sovereignty:

  • Unlimited Federal taxing powers for the limited sovereignty over war and peace.
  • State sovereignty to tax to provide welfare and “internal improvements”.

Federalist #45 (Madison):

“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected. The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State.”

With the 16th, 17th, and 18th Amendments the Progressive Era began. The clear text of the Constitution’s Preamble, Commerce, post Roads, Necessary and Proper, Ports, Amendments 9 and 10 were “interpreted” as “out of date” with the Progressive Agenda. This Agenda was put into action with The Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1916 and Mr. Wilson socializing communications, power, and transportation infrastructures as “natural monopolies” in 1918.


In 1982, after nearly a century of rotary telephones under Federal monopoly, courts declared the Federal communications monopoly unconstitutional. With liberty restored to created in free markets governed by standards, millions of jobs and vast wealth were created.

Repeat the success of communications in power and transportation by enforcing Constitutions and restoring liberty to innovate in standards-based free markets.

5X5 Standard:

The 5X5 Standard provides a simple and effective way to create a stable regulatory environment so $billions will be invested in sustainable infrastructure.

  1. This standard applies to Networks 5 times more efficient than existing transport modes in a Right of Way.
  2. Construction of the Networks must be privately funded.
  3. Networks must operate without government subsidies.
  4. Networks pay 5% of gross revenues for non-exclusive use of Rights of Way, or what existing laws require of other infrastructure networks using public Rights of Ways.
  5. Aboveground Networks must gather at least 2 megawatt-hours of renewable energy per typical mile per typical day.
  6. In collaboration with the State government, a Web-based Document System (WDS) will be provided with secure access to all jurisdictions. Each Network Plan will be posted to the WDS. Plans not rejected in writing within 14 days are approved.
    • The objective of this provision is to protect the interests of communities, remove bureaucratic delays, and remove problems coordinating with multiple agencies.
    • This only applies to Networks 5 times more efficient than existing networks.
  7. Regulated for safety by existing theme park regulations (typically ASTM F24).
    • This provides a 50,000 times better standard than Federal DOT:
      • 0.2 injuries per million using ASTM F24
      • 11,200 injuries per million using Federal DOT regulations.

Private capital has stated an interest to invest based on this 5X5 Standard.
