We, the undersigned, call upon President Obama, Vice-President Biden
and all members of Congress to implement the following reforms:
Until the Federal budget is balanced and the national debt paid off:
1) No US Justice Department employees shall be authorized or lawfully
able to conduct, or be involved in, Federal prosecutions of ANYONE
who has not inflicted ACTUAL AND ACTIONABLE HARM on anyone else.
(This can be implemented immediately by Executive Order of the President,
or in the absence of any such order, by an Act of Congress.
2) No Federal statute shall be invoked to arrest or prosecute any
political candidate for any office, for any political act including
exercising First Amendment rights, or for any campaign finance
law violation. Neither shall the Federal Government be authorized
to prosecute any non-merchant or any non-corporate entity for
any tax violations. If the Federal Government consistently fails year
after year to get its own finances straight, how can it prosecute
others for the same failing in any fair and reasonable context?
3) Federal prosecutions shall be strictly limited to the following
categories of offenses and suspects:
a) Perpetrators of actual espionage against the United States.
b) Officials and others who violate the Constitutional rights of
individuals in ways which are harmful or substantially
distressing to the victims, or any Constitutional violations
inflicted in the context of prosecutorial fraud or
c) Violators of RICO statutes and co-conspirators.
d) Child traffickers and OCW traffickers.
e) All Federal, State, County/Parish/Judicial District
and municipal or quasi-governmental association
employees or paid agents suspected of corruption
or involvement in special interest rings.
f) Corporate profiteers.
g) Home-stealers, including those who act under
color of authority and conspiratorially.
h) Counterfeiters and purloiners of art and intellectual
2) By Executive Order of the President; or failing that,
by Act of Congress, the powers of the President to
grant pardons and reprieves shall extend to and include
State offenses; and shall extend beyond definably
statutory offenses and convictions to other Government
actions inflicted on citizens and lawful residents of the
3) Congress shall create a new Cabinet position, the
Office of Budget Restructuring.
The OBR and its subsidiary agencies shall be granted
maximum budgetary allowances by Congress, and
authorized to return all unspent funds to the US Treasury
and rewarded by statutory incentives for successfully
having done so. Moreover, any agency under the OBR
shall also be authorized to abolish itself at any time, or
scheduled for merger with other Federal agencies or
departments by law (abolished by merger). First on the
list of OBR agencies shall be the TSA and the US
Department of Education. The OBR shall be a means
by which Congress and the President can agree to
effectual line-item vetoes on spending which can
recapture revenue and lower the cost of Government
across the board.
