Dear President Trump,
During your campaign to become President of The United States, you promised the American people you would “drain the swamp” that is Washington DC. You have proven this was not some idle campaign promise, but that you meant what you said and said what you meant.
Over the last several months we have come to learn just how deep and wide the swamp really is. We have learned it permeates every facet of our government, even to the point that the swamp has thwarted the efforts of the people’s representatives in congress. We also have strong reason to believe that the swamp transcends political parties. Very importantly, we now realize had you not become President, “drain the swamp” would have remained a rally cry for what the swamp refers to as the “far right-wing extreme radicals.”
As you know, our nation was founded on the radical premise that the “people would be sovereign” and the government would be the servant. President Lincoln declared that our nation is a nation “of the people, by the people, and for the people.”
With this in mind, if WE THE PEOPLE are to ever regain our rightful place as sovereign, then WE THE PEOPLE must do the necessary and hard work to accomplish that end. I would strongly urge you to take the lead in this endeavor. My proposal is that you appoint a special commission of representatives from WE THE PEOPLE. The commission would be comprised of ordinary but concerned citizens like myself. Yes, I would propose that I would be a member of this commission comprised of no more than perhaps 39 concerned citizens.
No member of the commission could not now nor ever have held an elected or appointed government position. No member of the commission could have held a rank of Lieutenant or above in the military. No member of the commission could be an attorney or a school teacher or a college professor. No member of the commission could hold a management position including serving as a board member on any of the top 1000 companies in the United States. All commission members would have to be a certifiable citizen of the United States. All commission members would have to show a consistent record of voting in statewide and national elections. All members of the commission would have to be able to receive the same security clearance any member of the White House Staff would have. Every member of the commission would have to sign a pledge that they would not seek an elective office nor accept an appointed position in the federal government for no less than 10 years.
The purpose of the commission would be only fact finding. The commission would have no prosecutorial power and would not make any prosecutorial recommendations. The commission would have subpoena powers but more importantly would have open access to all aspects of federal records of every department with the only exception being any information that would endanger the Untied States from a foreign power or endanger the life of any individual preforming security related functions for the United States.
The commission would be charged with the duty of investigating the activities related to any and all organizations and individuals involved with all federally related elections beginning in 2008. The commission would be charged with the duty of investigating the activities related to any and all departments and agencies of the Untied States government since 2008 to determine if the role of servant-hood was maintained; that no individual or agency promoted or tried to prevent any outside political activity, that no individual or agency attempted to subvert any lawful actions with which they or others were charged to perform as a part of their duties in the role of servant to the people, and that no agency or individual enabled a foreign power to gain an advantage to the detriment of the United States.
Commission members would report to a designated congressional committee of no more than 9 members and to an individual or committee of the executive branch as designated by the President. Any commission member or designated committee member that was found to leak sensitive information to the press would be subject to a prison term of no less than 10 years. Every commission member would agree that they would in no way use the information they gained for personal gain of any kind. They could, however, carry on their normal activities of writing and or discussing any topics with the exception of unique information and knowledge they would have gained as being a member of the commission.
It would be expected that the legislative branch of government and the executive branch of government would use this information to truly “drain the swamp” that has become Washington DC with no exceptions or restrictions based on political affiliation, race, sex, creed, or citizenship. Prosecutions, dismissals, or any other form of corrective measures imposed would be initiated as designated by the United States Constitution and the laws of the Untied States.
Thank you for your indulgence Mr. President. WE THE PEOPLE must truly drain the swamp so future generation of Americans can live in the freedom and independence that is America.
