Third Party Leader Defends the Right to Privacy
Bob McNeil, Texas businessman and leader of the American Citizen Party, who is exploring a run for President in 2016, reminds us that the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution reads: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
McNeil points out that the Fourth Amendment is particularly significant in light of the revelations that the National Security Agency (NSA) is spying on millions of Americans, and that the Internal Revenue Service ( IRS) has used personal information regarding the income of private citizens for political purposes. Indeed, McNeil questions the constitutionality of the IRS gathering income information on Americans as this information, he argues, should be private and protected by the Fourth Amendment as well. As such, McNeil calls for the repeal of the Sixteenth Amendment which allegedly established the Federal income tax.
Examining the history of the erosion of privacy rights, the Supreme Court, in 1989, established a new legal principle known as the "special needs" doctrine which allowed the drug testing of railway workers, and which was justified by the government's need to combat a perceived "public danger."
Further erosion of our Fourth Amendment protections has occurred through the secret rulings of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) which have given the NSA expansive powers to collect vast amounts of information on Americans without a warrant.
McNeil contends that “the security of the United States is best handled by Federal, state and local security agents, working in tandem with informants and other sources, to develop the necessary probable cause to justify obtaining a warrant from a judge to proceed with a legal, Constitutional search and seizure.”
BIOGRAPHY IN A LETTER TO AMERICA:
My name is Bob McNeil, founder of the American Citizen Party, and candidate for President of the United States in 2016.
I describe myself as “an ordinary man living an extraordinary life”.
A professional business consultant with an accounting degree and 35 years of experience auditing multi-billion dollar corporations, here in the United States, and in a number of countries around the world.
- A veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps from 1968 through 1974.
- A father of two daughters.
- A grandfather of three beautiful children.
- A trusted friend to many.
I have been disillusioned with our two-party political system for quite a while now, but, rather than complain about it, I decided to do something about it.
So, using a lifetime of experience, plus the analytical skills I have acquired during my career as a professional auditor, I set out to write a plan that would spark the “21st Century American Revolution”.
Knowing the dangers of that exercise from the people in power, and to ensure its success, I established the following criteria for the plan:
- It must be constitutional;
- It must be peaceful;
- It must transcend race, religion, age, gender, political affiliation, economic status, and all other things that the politicians use to divide us as a nation, and;
- It must restore liberty and prosperity to ALL American citizens.
In 2008, after one year of research and writing, I emerged with the plan. I formed the American Citizen Party in 2009 to serve as the platform from which to implement it, and have talked to hundreds of thousands of Americans about it in person, on the rad o, and in my blogs since then.
Now, it is time to go nationwide in order to build momentum for the 2014 election and my 2016 Presidential run.
If you yearn for liberty and prosperity like you’ve never before experienced, this is the political party you’ve been searching for.
Get involved. Sign up with your email address to receive my blogs. Contribute money to further the cause of liberty for yourself, your children, and future generations of Americans.
Together, we can, and we will, take back our country and restore it to its greatness.
The only way my plan will fail is if you continue to vote Democrats and Republicans into office, or worse, if you do nothing.
Take charge of your future. If you don’t, someone else will.
