The platform is simple. When elected, I will swear in, walk to the White House, and sign one executive order. This executive order will lay out the process for dissolving the federal government in a peaceful, orderly manner. With it, I will resign as President to become “Custodian of the Federal Government.” The only thing I will do as President before signing the order is pardon everyone convicted under federal law for victimless crimes. The executive order will appoint someone to head each federal department as “Custodians” who will carry out the plan outlined in the order.
Some agencies will be very easy to do away with, like those that perform only regulatory functions like the Department of Education, or those that perform completely illegitimate functions, like the IRS. Some Departments, like Justice, Interior, and State, need to be handled carefully and in some ways, transferred to state governments. National Parks will be transferred to the states, kept intact except where split by state lines. American troops abroad will be immediately brought home in a responsible and orderly manner that does not endanger their lives. All foreign federal properties will be liquidated. The offensive weaponry of the Department of Defense will also be liquidated (while defensive weaponry and appropriate personnel will be apportioned to the states) and the funds will be used to create endowments for the newly privatized Department of Veterans Affairs owned by veterans. Remaining funds collected from the liquidation of federal assets that are not transferred to states including lands, facilities, and equipment, will be given to the American people through the now independent Social Security Administration.
Upon winning the election, our transition team will immediately begin the rollout of a new, decentralized monetary system by which we can pay back the American people and fund the bankruptcy process of the federal government. Every American will be issued 1,000 Americoins by social security number. Americoin will be a cryptocurrency that functions similar to Bitcoin. It will be the only currency accepted for the liquidation of federal assets. An initial allocation, plus funds collected in the liquidation, will be used to fund the bankruptcy process. The remainder will go to the newly independent public trust formed from the Social Security Administration and will be paid back to the American people the same way that everyone is getting money from the SSA today until the funds run out.
Without your support, the inevitable collapse of the US Federal Government will not happen in a peaceful, orderly manner. In one sense, the message of this campaign is, “We can do things the easy way, or the hard way.” The hard way is to keep our heads buried in the sand. The easy way is to apply a solution as big as the problem. However, there is no guarantee that the American people will choose the easy way. It’s quite possible that there will be a collapse before a critical mass of us see the light. We may have a widespread secession movement. Regardless of how the federal government comes to an end, I will run until it does.
More important than the politics of this campaign, is the education about the nature of government and how we can apply it to live more free NOW! This campaign is about encouraging people to minimize the role of government in their lives and their role in empowering government. When you understand government properly, you relate to it properly. One of the most important ways to disempower government is to stop paying taxes (legally or illegally.) One of the most effective ways to do this is to stop using government money, and with cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, this is easier than ever.
Well before the 2020 campaign season, I’ll be releasing the exact plan of this campaign as a book, AMERICAN FREEDOM!, which will lay out the general plan and principles of the platform. Because the executive order will be constantly under development in order to stay current with the state of the government, as the campaign progresses, we will have an updated version of the executive order on this site by the time I will be seeking the nomination of the Libertarian Party at our 2020 convention. Until then, join the revolution you’ve been waiting for by signing up under your state in the forum and check out 10 Things You Can Do RIGHT NOW To Help End the Fed!
