Honoring the Oath of Office
Honoring the Oath of Office
Elected officials have, at times, acted in ways that did not honor the oath to defend and support the constitution of the United States of America. To this end, a regulation should be introduced to preclude such officials from using the title of their office, "Honorable," or any similar title, following their departure from office, should they engage in any of the following acts listed below. This should apply uniformly to all elected officials and retroactively to elected officials that served as far back as the January 1, 2000.
Amend the United States Code and Code of Federal Regulations, or any other required regulatory documents so that:
Effective immediately and retroactively effective from the period of January 1, 2000 until present.
Any person elected to a government position in the United States of America, following the end of their service in said position, shall not use the title of their office, "Honorable," or any similar title, should they engage in any of the following acts listed below while in execution of their elected office:
1) Threaten free and fair elections via actions that encourage voter intimidation or voter suppression including disproportionately attempting to close voting locations in an area reasonably believed to not favor their re-election or the re-election of members of their political party
2) Attempt to seek the aid of foreign nations or persons to influence voters through the actions of themselves, members of their campaign, family or any other agent associated with their election effort
3) Use government funds to enrich the businesses of themselves, their close friends, relatives, campaign staff, agents associated with their campaign, or any organization in which they hold stock
4) Secure treaties or agreements with foreign governments, businesses, or persons to enrich the businesses of themselves, their close friends, relatives, campaign staff, agents associated with their campaign, or any organization in which they hold stock during their office or up to five years after they leave office
5) Refuse to publicly acknowledge the results of a free and fair election and refuse to assist the incoming elected official with a peaceful transition of power
6) Use their office to grant favors, including clemency, a commutation of sentence, or in any other way that interferes with a citizen serving their full sentence for a member of their businesses, their close friends, relatives, campaign staff, agents associated with their campaign, elected officials and former officials from their political party, or any organization in which they hold stock for any reason
7) Act in ways that serve only to undermine the mission of government agencies including appointing persons to high ranking, supervisory positions with the intent of interfering with or otherwise rendering ineffective such agencies
8) Engaging in activities that would reasonably be expected to endanger to lives, health, or safety of civil servants and citizens, against the advice of health officials in non-political appointed positions, when there is no immediate threat to American lives or assets to warrant such activities
9) Publicly engage in dangerous speech such as hate speech, the spread of misinformation that could likely result in danger to the health of the citizenry, or discourse encouraged to suppress the rights of the citizenry, including the freedom to peacefully assemble, freedom of the press, or the freedom of speech of any citizen, including citizens with prior agreements to not disclose information, during the duration of the public office
10) Act in any way to suppress the rights of the citizenry, including freedom of the press, the freedom of speech of any citizen, or the freedom to peacefully assemble
11) Attempt to shield from scrutiny their current and former taxes, business investments, income, or any other holdings of value during the time following the announcement of their intent to run for a political office and ending with their departure from office
12) Direct the use of government resources or encourage citizens take actions that violate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Following the adoption of this guidance, failure to comply with this guidance, domestically or abroad, will result in a first-time fine of $1,000.00. Subsequent offenses, following the notification of the offender of this regulation, will result in incarceration in a federal prison for a period not less than 14 days per offense. This sentence is ineligible for commutation, clemency, or any other action that would shorten the length or result in the offender serving their sentence in a location other than a federal prison.
