Four benefits came from my work on Loyalty Oaths in Florida:
- 1. The judges swore new public employee oaths, as they should have.
- 2. The Florida Department of State put jurat forms back on the election-related documents, as they should have.
- 3. I wrote a report to document my efforts and the results, in order to encourage others to act when they see the need.
- 4. The Florida Legislature removed 876.07 requiring candidates to swear a loyalty oath.
I disagree with them. The States' officers must abide by the US Constitution and US Law, and both require judges to swear an oath different from the one in the Florida Constitution
I stopped working on it. The media has no interest and the Supremes are pretty much a brick wall. I showed them their error, explained the problems it caused, told them how to correct it, and informed a number of lawyers about it. One took the arguments to the Supremes in a disbarment fight. They ruled as I said above. I documented it all in my report. I did my job as a sovereign citizen. It was the least I should do. Most people do the least they can.
I believe several oath-related issues remain open to administrative, legal, and political activism:
1. The State Board of Payroll does not demand evidence of the required oaths on record before issuing pay. It should.
2. The Florida Constitution's oath contains superfluous wording that destroys its apparent intent, and the Legislature must remove that wording. The words "and government" must go. One should never swear to support the government, since it is an enemy of the constitutions owing to humans' tendency to aggrandize themselves with power that the constitutions don't grant.
3. The Florida Constitution needs to require bonds to back those sworn oaths and impose penalties for violating the oaths after swearing them. Public officers should pay the bond fees out of their pockets. The Constitution needs to stipulate a way for citizens to lodge complaints against the bonds of public officers who injured them. A special grand jury should resolve those complaints using private attorneys. Registered voters with college degrees should sit on that grand jury. Government must fund it. State attorneys should nto influence it. They should choose their own foreman, not a lawyer. Judges and others should not have immunity from tort lawsuits for failing to do their duties. And it should be possible for injured parties to prosecute the judges for crimes against them/.
I consider all of these constitute justifications to hammer on government for corrective action. I have already written to the Governor and Supreme Court and Bar ruler of judicial nominating commissions about the first two items. They ignored me. If you cover the cost, I'll hammer on them in court.
