It has often been said that any organization is only as strong as its weakest link. Well, our government not only has A SINGLE 'weak link', but it has become SATURATED with pedophiles, satanists, subversives, foreign operatives, revolutionaries, and MANY people who do not have the well-being of America in mind at all. Such a test would go a LONG way to protecting the fundamental principles upon which this nation and our system of law was founded, by providing a platform where deserving candidates can rise to the surface FIRST to prove competence in our language, comprehension of the principles implicit in their Oath and how that relates to our Bill of Rights and Constitution in particular, with the added assurance that they have never been in breach of thei DUTY OF ALLEGIANCE at any time during which such duty was owing to this country. And, if such a test were implemented, and even if someone with concealed motive DID TAKE AND PASS the test and get into office, we have FORFEITURE OF PUBLIC OFFICE LAWS to remove them for official misconduct, failure/refusal to follow lawful authority, acts of sedition, etc.
Pt.1 to be based upon Declaration of Independence, Constitution of the United States of America, Bill of Rights & Oath of Office. Aspiring candidates MUST pass reading comprehension test to show competency in English language; and they must ALSO show demonstrated competence in exploring the fundamental principles implicit therein, and what it means to remain within one's 'lawful ambit of authority'. In Part 1 of the test, some specific words and phrases shall be presented for memorization; such as 'good faith' as distinguished from 'bad faith', and 'hierarchy of authority' so that the public servant remembers WHO works for WHOM, etc. Failure of Part 1 would require the aspiring candidate to study further and re-take the test at some future time, not less than six months from date of initial failure.
Pt.2 Requires a rigorous examination of the aspiring candidate's background - taking care to look for any act of treachery or betrayal when a duty of allegiance was owed to the United States. Failure to pass this part of the test results in permanent disqualification to hold public office at the federal level. No exceptions.
FINAL NOTE: The sovereignty which was inherent in the People has been LARGELY RELINQUISHED to our 'representatives' who are 'our voice' so long as they are responsive to it, which is WHY THEIR STRICT ADHERENCE to upholding their OATH is vital. We entrust them with an awesome power. If used properly, the 'wheels of government' turn smoothly without running the people over. However, IF corruption comes in, then FORFEITURE OF PUBLIC OFFICE gets the bad apples OUT, before they cancause further damage.
