End Government Secrecy!
Texas businessman and 2016 American Citizen Party presidential candidate Bob McNeil vows to end the pattern of secrecy that has become a routine tactic of the US Government. “Too often the government classifies documents not for legitimate national security reasons, but rather to deceive the public or protect reputations,” notes McNeil, who is concerned over the recent revelation that secret side deals are part of an agreement to lift economic sanctions on Iran.
“The American people have a right to know all aspects of such an important agreement, especially since these secret codicils have no bearing on national security,” asserts McNeil, who is calling on Congress to demand the release of all such documents for public debate. “Such secrecy is not congruent with a free and open society where the government is supposed to be of, by, and for the people,” adds McNeil.
The US Government became more secretive during World War II, as it took Republicans in Congress 10 years after the 1945 end of hostilities to get the government to release the transcripts of the Yalta Agreement and other agreements as well as notes related to the Allied Conferences held during the war. Even when the government finally released the Yalta documents, parts of the documents were blackened out to shield various names from public exposure. Since the war was long over, the only possible explanation for the continued secrecy would be the desire to protect the reputation of President Franklin D. Roosevelt and members of his administration.
As a result of such secrecy, the American people have gotten used to the outrageous practice by the government of classifying important events and even the contents of various diplomatic and economic treaties arrived at between the US and foreign nations. Now the US has agreed to lift the sanctions on Iran without any means of determining whether the radical Iranian Mullah’s have stopped their development of nuclear facilities. That Americans are not bothered by the fact that aspects of this agreement are secret raises some troubling questions regarding the willingness on the part of American citizens to accept the responsibilities attendant to self-government.
“When I am elected president in 2016, I will issue an executive order that will result in the release of all classified documents not pertaining to immediate national security considerations. I will make all such documents available to researchers and historians. By this means, we the people will be fully appraised of our actual history. This is the best means of our forming accurate and informed opinions regarding our politics of today,” stresses McNeil.
Bob McNeil 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 and the media 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 millions of Americans about it in person, on the radio 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.
