Bill Munnell Has a Great History.. and He's Ready to Keep Serving.
...Judge Munnell's Platform Goals..
Recognize and honor the sovereignty of the people in no-nonsense terms. (Re-write the oath of office for public servants accordingly ~ and prosecute violators of the oath.)
Implement a national, fail-safe, trustworthy voting system that does not employ machines and secret codes which can be rigged to throw elections. (Use hand-marked, paper ballots that are eyeball tabulated.)
Make it a capital crime to tamper with the outcome of any election.
Decide all controversial, non-emergency issues by public referendums. (If there's any question about an issue being controversial, it is.)
Cause all public servants to understand that they are obligated to facilitate the democratic process and that it is just plain wrong to condescend the sovereign people in any way at any time.
Recognize the fact that America's legal system is NOT a justice system. Invite suggestions from the general public regarding ways to create and implement a true justice system. Display ALL suggestions on a number of websites. Hold national public referendums to adopt changes in keeping with the will of the sovereign people.
Incarcerate for life any person who works against truth and justice.
Incarcerate any elected official who swears to support and defend the Constitution without having a working knowledge of the supreme law of the land ~ especially including the Bill of Rights. (Swearing to serve something that you don't understand is fraud.)
Create and maintain a National Ombudsman Office to solicit and evaluate complaints against public employees at all levels. Such office to have branches in all states. Chief Ombudsman to be elected every two years by national public vote.
Exert maximum effort to establish a hydrogen/alternative energy economy at the earliest possible time. (Reduce air pollution, climate change, America's dependence on oil, and America's role in oil politics.)
Abolish the intrusive and abusive Internal Revenue Service. Determine/implement a simple, sane, replacement taxation system. Elect the chief executive of the new system to make him or her accountable to the sovereign people. (The United States is NOT a free country as long as every American is under the heavy thumb of the IRS!)
Do whatever it takes to eliminate the culture of corruption which permeates American government at all levels. Nationalize any corporation that engages in treasonable activities.
Recognize government as the people's business in meaningful, no-nonsense ways. Emphasize openness so that the sovereign people are kept fully-informed regarding public issues in order for them to accurately judge the integrity and competence of public servants. (Public servants who attempt to cover-up stupid or corrupt happenings within their ranks to be tried for felony fraud and, if found guilty, incarcerated for a minimum of ten years.)
Require elected officials to answer questions regarding the people's business in a responsible and timely manner. (Non- cooperative officials to lose their positions of public trust.)
Require all public employees to conduct themselves with humility in keeping with the concept of servant. (Members of the sovereign people to be treated by their servants as owners of government, not as customers.)
Amend the Constitution to require direct election of the President and the Vice-President. (Eliminate the Electoral College.)
Amend the Constitution to elect all federal judges including members of the United States Supreme Court. (All public officials must be made accountable to the sovereign people.)
Prohibit public officials promoting or voting on issues that would benefit their major campaign contributors. (Any single or collective amount over $500.)
Identify those interests that have bought politicians in past and take harsh measures to prevent this in future. (Investigate money and presents given to Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons, a former member of Congress.)
Make it a capital crime to attempt bribing any elected official. Define any "campaign contribution" over $500 ~ or any gift or gifts worth more than $500 gross annually from a single, primary source ~ as a willful attempt to buy political influence, thereby circumventing and undermining the principle of government of, by, and for the people.)
Require candidates for public office to pass an IQ test. (Passing grade to be determined.)
Require candidates for public office to pass a tough test regarding the Constitution of the United States with emphasis on the Bill of Rights. (A preparation/study program to be placed on the Internet.)
Redefine "treason" to include any act that ignores or assaults the Constitution's letter and spirit. This to include distorted and self-serving interpretations of the supreme law of the land by public officials. This to include public servants asserting sovereignty over the people.
Redefine "treason" to include public officials lying to the sovereign people by what they say ~ or fail to say.
Redefine "treason" to include any attempt by any public official to ignore or restrict the principle of uninhibited, robust, and wide-open free speech during meetings of public bodies. (Free speech is our first defense against arrogant, stupid, and corrupt public servants. Government of, by, and for the people can NOT exist without totally-unrestricted free speech.)
Require every public body to post a sign, in English, at least four feet by eight feet, in its meeting chamber saying: "[As Americans we have] a profound national commitment to the principle that debate on public issues should be uninhibited, robust, and wide-open, and that it may well include vehement, caustic, and sometimes unpleasantly sharp attacks on government and public officials." ~ U.S. Supreme Court, Times v. Sullivan (1964)
Require every public body to post a sign, in English, at least four feet by eight feet, in its meeting chamber saying: "Decorum does not trump freedom of speech. Decorum is not mentioned even once in the Constitution of the United States ~ although the supreme law of the land guarantees freedom of speech. Freedom of speech is our first defense against stupid and corrupt public officials."
Require elected officials to take credible polygraph examinations every six months. (Non-cooperative officials to forfeit their positions of public trust.)
Reduce the term of office for each member of the US Senate to four years.
Reduce to four years the total time any citizen may serve in Congress.
Determine compensation of all federal officials, including benefits and retirement plans, by national public referendums.
Determine commitment to any war or police action ~ except when the nation is attacked or clearly faces imminent attack ~ by national public referendums. (War is too serious to leave to politicians who may be intellectually-challenged, sanity-challenged, or owned by powerful special interests.)
Require all citizens to have practical fluency in the English language. Limit voting to persons having such fluency. (Voting ballots and related information to be printed in English only.)
Protect the rights of citizens and legal aliens by not granting any financial benefits to illegal aliens and their children ~ whether or not the latter are born in the United States. (The United States can not be all things to all persons. Persons entering the country illegally are criminals.)
Establish and maintain a National College for Constitutional Law Enforcement. Phase in a requirement that all command-level law enforcement professionals across the country attend periodic training sessions.
Treat as kidnapping any arrest of any citizen whose non-crime is speaking out against any violation of the U.S. Constitution by any public servant. (It is an obligation of citizenship to support and defend the supreme law of the land.)
Require each state legislature to pass no law without credible consideration of whether that law complies with the U.S. Constitution. (Any law that is repugnant to the Constitution is null and void.)
Enact and enforce whistle-blower laws that fully and justly protect such persons from retribution of any kind. (Public officials who would punish whistle-blowers would lose their positions of public trust.)
Establish and implement national health care for all Americans.
Severely limit violence on broadcast and cable television. (Credible studies demonstrate serious, unacceptable, negative effects on our society caused by TV violence.)
Encourage healthy parenting and healthy, interpersonal relationships. (Training courses to be presented on television and on the Internet.)
By national public referendum, determine that the First Amendment does not permit the preaching of "holy war" for religious purposes. (Such preaching works against freedom of religion and promotes acts of terrorism.)
Encourage corporations and other businesses to practice enlightened capitalism. (Supportive websites to be put online.)
Treat trafficking in illegal, hard drugs as a capital crime for persons holding positions of public trust.
Conduct an in-depth, Congressional investigation into government corruption in Nevada ~ and other states as requested.
Re-establish legal dueling. This will reduce the numbers of corrupt politicians, bureaucrats, lawyers, judges, publishers, writers, broadcast personalities, police officers, etc.
Create and maintain a "United States Honor Roll" on the Internet to recognize all Americans ~ citizens and legal aliens ~ who make good things happen in their communities. (As paid workers and as volunteers.)
There will be those who will see the above goals as insane. However, the real insanity is what we're doing ~ or not doing ~ at the present time.
Let us define "Cloud Nine" and ask, "Why not?"
Here's a friend... shaking hands with The Judge.
