Political Candidate Questionnaire
The peaceful realization of REVISITING 1776’s goal is contingent on having the cooperation of government officials at every level. We must evaluate each political candidate and support those sharing our goal and who possess the qualities needed to advance it. It’s suggested this questionnaire be used in the evaluation.
Dear Candidate ________________________
I’m writing on behalf of the __________________; a group taking pride in assuring we cast informed votes. To do so, we must know if you agree with some of our core beliefs, America’s problem, and our goal. Please help us by completing this questionnaire and returning it to ____________________ at_________________________________ or by email to _____________________________.
Have you studied America’s
Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States and the
Bill of Rights (organic Constitution)?
If Yes, do you think
you understand the spirit and intent of their authors?
If Yes, please proceed.
Are you or have you ever been a
member of the Council of Foreign Relations?
The Declaration of Independence is
our Nation's birth certificate and our Constitution’s cornerstone. For
lawful government to exist, it must comply with the principles and policies
set forth in these documents and the Bill of Rights when interpreted in the
spirit and intent of America’s founders.
Through the Constitution, the
States created the federal government as their AGENT. As principals to the
Constitution and under the Law of Agency, our States possess the ultimate
authority and responsibility for the proper interpretation and
implementation of the Constitution.
Art. IV, Sec. 4 of the
Constitution requires that each State have a Republican form of government
and be protected from invasion.
Treaties, a purview of the
President with the advice and consent of the Senate, cannot lawfully create
law as Art. 1 Sec.1 of our Constitution vested all legislative powers in the
Congress. Since the House has no authority over Treaties, any
pretense to use them to create or modify our laws is an unlawful act.
The Constitution's 10th Amendment
stating "the powers not delegated to the United States by the
Constitution .... are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people"
provides incontestable evidence that the only lawful powers of the
Federal Government are those specified in the Constitution.
No elected or appointed official
has - nor has had - any lawful authority to alter the intent of our
Nation’s founding fathers as set forth in our Declaration of Independence,
Constitution and Bill of Rights. To be lawful, every Executive Order,
Supreme Court decision, Presidential Decision Directive, Constitutional
Amendment, Proclamation, or other writing must be in the interest of
advancing the cause of life, liberty, and the happiness of the American
The U. S. Supreme Court was correct in saying:
a. "This Court has regularly
and uniformly recognized the supremacy of the Constitution over a treaty"
and “ it would be manifestly contrary to the objectives of those who created
the Constitution, let alone alien to our Constitutional history and
tradition to construe Article 6 as permitting the United States to exercise
power under an international agreement without observing Constitutional
prohibitions.” (Reid vs Covert)
b. "a law repugnant to the
Constitution is void." (Marbury vs Madison)
c. "Where rights secured by
the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation
which would abrogate them." (Miranda vs Arizona)
d. “whatever the outer
limits of the (states) Sovereignty may be, one thing is clear; the Federal
Government may not compel the States to enact or administer a Federal
regulatory program….Where Congress exceeds its authority relative to the
States, departure from the constitutional plan cannot be ratified by
‘consent’ of State officials.” New York vs. United States112 S. Ct 2408
are free to exercise the doctrines of “interposition” and “nullification”
and reject Federal legislation with which they disagree. (see South
Carolinas 1832 Ordinance of Nullification)
the 11/22/1994 Republican governor
allegation saying "Federal action has
exceeded the clear bounds of its jurisdiction under the Constitution and
thus violated rights guaranteed the people"
is true; amply supported by evidence; adequately
defines America’s problem and means those responsible for the
action and its perpetuation are guilty of crimes falling under Title 18 of
the U. S. Criminal code.
states are, in law, the principals to the Constitution; that our problem
stems from state legislatures failing to enforce the provisions of the
Constitution; that it is through them that a state may act in its highest
sovereign capacity in dealing with the unconstitutional “Federal action” and
it will be state action that restores our Constitution and satisfies our
goal, if it is ever to be restored.
Item - On August 30, 1973,
a United Press International news release said:
“A special Senate subcommittee, after a
painstaking computer search of the statue books, concluded the United States
since 1933 has been operating under emergency rule, conferring
near-authoritarian powers on its presidents.” The “special
subcommittee” alluded to was the Senate Special Committee on the termination
of the National Emergency. It reportedly
“discovered 470 major provisions of Federal law giving presidents ‘an
enormous--seemingly expanding and never-ending---range of emergency powers”
and said “This vast range of
powers, taken together, confer enough authority to rule the country without
reference to normal constitutional processes… For 40 years (now over
75) freedoms and governmental procedures guaranteed by the
Constitution have, in varying degrees, been abridged by laws brought into
force by states of emergency.” Will you support action to terminate
the emergency and to reinstate our organic constitution as the supreme law
of the land?
Item - ART. 1, SEC 8:5 of our Constitution gave CONGRESS the power “to coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin…” Congress abrogated this responsibility by transferring it to a deceitfully named, privately owned bank known as the Federal Reserve System (FED) in 1913. Rather than monetize wealth as intended by the Constitution, the FED chose to monetize debt as verified by an 11/1/82 letter from the Dept. of Treasury saying “the actual creation of money always involves the extension of credit by private commercial banks.” I.E., what we call ‘money’ and use as a medium of exchange isn’t really money which - by definition - must be a ‘storehouse’ of value. When asked where the ‘money’ needed to pay the interest on the borrowed ‘money’ was to be found, the Dept. of Treasury said in a 1/6/1993 letter that “money for paying the interest on borrowed money comes from the same source as other money comes from.”
Under this system of ‘money’
(debt) creation, Americans have amassed a public and private debt in excess
of $50 trillion and face about another $45 trillion in unfunded obligations.
The total ‘money’ supply with which to meet these obligations is about $6.1
trillion. Obviously, they cannot be met under existing monetary policy. Due
to this unconstitutional monetary policy, our states are in economic turmoil
and Americans are - and every generation to come will be - in economic
bondage. Clearly, the way in which our medium of exchange is created must be
changed. Will you support a responsible effort to do so?
Item - Thirty governors
pledged "to restore to the States and the
people the prerogatives and freedoms guaranteed them under the
Constitution." Will you act in
support of this pledge?
