Politicians

Politicians, because they have a government provided soap box to publicise their views, shall have their freedom of speech limited.  If a politician is deemed to advocate action that is contrary to the Constitution, he or she will be prohibited from acting in his official capacity until his case be tried.  After trial and conviction, the politician shall be removed from office.

Because the politician will not be subject to a fine or prison sentence, it will be incumbent on the politician to show a court that his expressed views do not violate the Constitution.

Before a politician may be registered as a candidate, he or she must take a written test demonstrating knowledge of the Constitution and the working of government.  The test shall be at the same intellectual level for each office and will be more thorough for higher offices than for lower.
