Tom Miller is 46 years old, an experienced flight attendant, and running for President as "a common man"

(Mar. 18, 2011) — Tom Miller launched his presidential campaign based on the belief that “it’s time to return to the day of electing a common man for President of the United States of America.” His platform includes securing the U.S. borders with Mexico and Canada; termination of the benefits packages which retired congressmen and senators receive upon leaving Washington, DC; putting an end to the “socializing of America,” and terminating the minimum wage standard mandated by past Congresses.  He is pro-life and favors states’ rights.

Mr. Miller’s father was a decorated World War II Marine veteran.

When visiting his campaign website and clicking on the link for his resume, a waving American flag appears.  When The Post & Email asked Mr. Miller if that was intentional, he said, “That is my resume’, natural born Citizen, over the age of 35 years and have lived within the U.S.A. for at least 14 years (I have never resided off of our soil). For those who can understand the respect that I have for the Office that I am seeking and what the true requirements are to be President, I thought that by showing the flag as my resume’ would make a bold and patriotic statement of who I am and what I believe in.”

We asked where he grew up, and he replied, “I grew up in Kansas and as an adult have lived in Hawaii, Washington State, Michigan, New Hampshire and Minnesota. With my career, I have traveled more than 11,000,000 miles over the last 23 years (domestically and internationally), let alone dozens of camping trips to many of our great National Parks.

On his “Who Is” page, Mr. Miller states:

“Hello America”. I am Thomas J. Miller, a 46 year old single dad who has been a career flight attendant for over 23+ years. Everyday I directly see how individuals, businesses and States are being affected and controlled by our government. I have decided to stand up and be the public servant (not the politician) that will finally represent the will of the people. To prove my commitment, I have been officially registered with the Federal Election Commission as; Candidate (Rep.): President of the United States 2012. My principle campaign committee “Reduce Government Miller for President” has also been registered. I have signed and filed the required financial disclosure forms personally without the assistance of a party machine or a special interest.

Mr. Miller gave generously of his time to The Post & Email earlier this week.  Here he shares his motivation for becoming a candidate, how he views the role of government, and some of the first things he would do if elected.  He is running as a Republican.

MR. MILLER: First, if I may, I want to extend my sympathies and prayers for the Japanese people and the country of Japan and for all of the nations and the individuals who are providing them support right now and in the coming years.  I have spent a lot of time over there, and I want to extend that to them.  I’ve been visiting over there for the last 23 years with my job.

MRS. RONDEAU: Certainly.  What inspired you to run for president?

MR. MILLER: Career politicians have started to socialize our country and bring us to the edge of financial bankruptcy. I’m not going to allow this destruction to continue without at least stepping forward myself. The one true position to make a difference is the Presidency and my Constitution allows me this opportunity. I am a common citizen who has the backbone, the faith and the ideology to make the permanent decisions that they are either unable or unwilling to do. It’s our time.

MRS. RONDEAU: On your website, you mentioned that you could repeal much unconstitutional legislation by Executive Order.  Is that constitutional?

MR. MILLER: Executive orders would be issued within the limits of what the Constitution allows.  What I am addressing is the removal of issues that overreach the Constitution itself, so it would be by use of the executive orders to remove items that should not have been placed on the American people in the first place.

Editor’s Note: The first executive order was issued by President George Washington in 1789 and was at that time called a Presidential Proclamation.  Because the passing of legislation is the function of Congress, most executive orders apply to members of the Executive branch staff rather than to private citizens.   The orders are subject to review by the Judicial branch.

MRS. RONDEAU: What do you think about the Obama eligibility question?

MR. MILLER: Until Mr. Obama produces his original birth certificate, I too have doubts about his citizenship and whether or not he is qualified to be President. Right now, though, Judicial Watch and many others are pursuing this very subject about his authenticity and we shall all await these results. In the meantime, I will continue to concentrate on the solutions to the problems facing our Nation as I run for President of the United States of America.

MRS. RONDEAU: Many departments have been created prior to now such as the Department of Education, the Department of Agriculture, etc.  Do you believe that the creation of these departments was constitutional, and are they valid now?

MR. MILLER: I’ll use the Department of Education as an example.  That should be a state issue; this is where the Tenth Amendment comes into play.  The states should be taking care of education, not the federal government.  That was the case up until the actual creation of the Department of Education.

MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think that the federal government is involved in too many aspects of our lives?  If so, other than the executive orders you mentioned, what could be done to rein in the federal overreach?

MR. MILLER: Yes.  To correct what has taken place, it will be generational.  It is not an overnight solution.  One of the primary cornerstones of my campaign is to re-empower the American people with the freedoms they need to not only restore our economy, but also the American dream.  A large piece of that is by nominating and appointing individuals directly from the private sector, which I have under my “Cabinet” page and by putting individuals into these leadership roles of the different departments since they have specialized in these categories.

For example, take banking.  For the Secretary of the Treasury, by installing a person directly from the private sector, they’re generating a banker out of South Dakota.  They’ve never had  a problem with their bank; their family has always done it, and now that person is Secretary of the Treasury.  Then with that specialty, they can then break down the department, what has happened to it, and what should be within the private sector and how much should be within the federal government’s control.  It is that re-empowering of the American people by putting people back into these positions that will make the difference.  This is where the disconnect has occurred between the governed and the government.

MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think that our elected representatives really represent us today, or are they representing something or someone else?

MR. MILLER: It’s something or something else; they just don’t have the connection anymore, overall.

MRS. RONDEAU: Has the disconnect happened over the last couple of election cycles, or has it been longer than that?

MR. MILLER: When I look at the first 150 or 160 years of our country, the United States of America had  zero national debt, the largest middle class ever, with a low tax rate.  The disconnect happened with the creation of the “career politician.”  It became a disconnect between the governed and the government, and it was over the last 60-80 years that the disconnect has become so great.

MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think at this point the American people understand what has happened, that their elected representatives may have other interests in mind?

MR. MILLER: When you look at the town hall meetings that were held in 2008 and 2009 and then they stopped because they didn’t like what they were hearing, something was wrong.  Here is a great example:  a 345-page report came out on March 1 by the Government Accountability Office.  The official title of it is “Opportunities to Reduce Potential Duplication in Government Programs, Save Tax Dollars, and Enhance Revenue.”  A 345-page report outlines more than $100,000,000,000 per year in savings that they found on the surface.  And yet, the media is not reporting on it; the budget process for 2011/2012 has not been stopped, which means this information can’t be incorporated in.  To me, as a citizen, there is a major disconnect there such that our president and his budgetary committee will not factor this in immediately.  It appears they’re not even listening within the departments themselves.

MRS. RONDEAU: $100 billion is a lot of money, just off the surface.  Think of what they could find if they really looked deeply.

MR. MILLER: Candidate Obama made a campaign pledge which said that if he were elected, he would go through the budget line by line.  Having made a statement as a candidate like that and now having the Government Accountability Office produce a 345-page report and for him not to incorporate that, stop the presses at the budget process and evaluate this; let’s incorporate this…it’s not happening.

MRS. RONDEAU: So he hasn’t done what he said he would do, at least not up until this point.

MR. MILLER: At least what we are aware of on the surface.  What’s going on behind closed doors, we cannot see.

MRS. RONDEAU: What kind of impact do you think the media has had on people’s ability to make an informed decision at the voting booth and to know what’s going on in government?

MR. MILLER: The media has fallen very short of its responsibility.  I will give an example from my own campaign that I am proof of how the mainstream media is picking and choosing the stories that they print.  They are staying with the career politicians and those who have either held office or whom the media is supporting.  I have spoken with the political director of CNN in Washington, DC via a personal phone call with him. To this point, he has chosen not to do any reporting on my campaign. That was over two weeks ago.  He still might do something, but to this point, he is not addressing me as a candidate, even though I have gone through the formal process.

A second example is that the Los Angeles Times had an article out on February 27 regarding presidential candidate Herman Cain, and the headline of that article was “The Only Declared Presidential Candidate.”  I contacted their editor-in-chief and provided them with the factual information that in May 2009, I was officially registered along with my campaign committee.  They have chosen to not respond to me, and I haven’t seen anything published to date.  In fairness to them, they have not acknowledged nor published anything; whether or not they are working on something could change that.  But as far as their not responding within a week or two, for them not even to respond  speaks for itself.

MRS. RONDEAU: There is another Republican running for President:  Andy Martin, and he has stated that he is the only declared presidential candidate.  So that could mean that he doesn’t know about you.  I also didn’t know about you until you contacted The Post & Email.

MR. MILLER: In the bigger picture of the mainstream media, they pick and choose.  To me, it does not appear to be neutral anymore.

MRS. RONDEAU: Why do you think that is?

MR. MILLER: One thought is because of the revenue base.  If it’s not going to generate revenue or is not good for them, they just won’t report it.  It’s based on popularity, unfortunately.  The 345-page report from the GAO is another example.  It would be for the betterment of the country for the American people to hear this because right there is $100,000,000,000 in savings; that should be front-page across every newspaper.  It’s our money.  But it’s not there.

MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think that the 16th Amendment, which authorized the income tax, is constitutional?

MR. MILLER: I believe it is; it’s what’s been done with it since then.  But the actual amendment itself, yes.

It seems as if the tax structure of our country has been turned into a method of Congress and/or our federal government which rewards or penalizes decisions using the example of cash rebates, deductions or other higher taxes.  So it’s almost to the point of behavior modification:  “You go and buy this product and we’re going to give you this tax rate; you go and do this, and we’re going to charge you this or we won’t charge you.”  So rather than actually using it for the intent that it had, to collect the revenue to operate the government, it has now been used in another format.

MRS. RONDEAU: Is there a way to get politicians into government who will not run away with our money, creating more agencies, etc.?

MR. MILLER: Only through voter participation.  By holding our elected officials accountable, and the first thing is to elect officials in whom the people can believe, who are going to do what they say.  Then it just becomes citizen participation in the process of electing those candidates.

MRS. RONDEAU: Do you believe that citizens have withdrawn from the political process over the years?

MR. MILLER: Yes, I do believe that they are totally disconnected from it because, in a very simple form, it’s unfortunate, but a campaign promise is pretty hollow.  Then when you look at the money that has been put into the political process of electing federal officials, almost $1 billion was raised during the presidential campaign of 2008.

MRS. RONDEAU: Why should it take so much money to elect someone, or shouldn’t it?

MR. MILLER: When you look at 20 years ago, the top 1% of the country owned or controlled less than 5% of the wealth in the United States, but fast-forward to today, that top 1% owns or controls 40% of the wealth in this country.  CNN did a story a week or two ago that was even more staggering than that:  the top 400 incomes of individuals in the U.S. equals the bottom 100,000,000 people of the United States of America.  Four hundred people to 100,000,000.  That disconnect shows the power shift in this country.  When you look at the personal wealth of the members of Congress, using Congress as an example, with the 111th Congress, the average net worth was $1.8 million.

MRS. RONDEAU: For each person?

MR. MILLER: Yes.  When you look at those who are supposed to be representing us, when they have a net worth approaching $2,000,000 each vs. the average American’s net worth of $50,000 or less – again, it reinforces where the disconnect is and where the control is.

MRS. RONDEAU: Can this be changed?

MR. MILLER: If the voters choose to.  I made around $45,000 last year.  I live within my means; I ended the year with less debt than I started with; I made it work.  We had to make a lot of sacrifices to do that, but I live within my means.  I have limited funds, and yet, we have a very happy home life.  That’s where we go back to the first 150 years of the United States:  you had farmers, teachers and soldiers leaving the private sector who would go and represent their district and then return to the private sector.  That’s why there was that connection and accountability.  There was a responsibility because it was not an “us” and “them.”  It’s so unfortunate.  I state on my website that I have the connection today.  I have to balance my checkbook every month whereas these individuals who claim a middle-class, blue-collar upbringing, it was 40 years ago.  It was not today.  Most of them don’t even know that a gallon of milk is running $3.50 a gallon.

MRS. RONDEAU: Members of Congress receive so many benefits:  about $175,000 a year and lifetime health benefits after serving a certain amount of time.  Do you think that should be changed?

MR. MILLER: Immediately.  It needs to be restored back to a position of honor, not a career.  That’s the number one thing.  On my website, I have a list of items.  One of my primary goals is to bring the entire federal government back in line with the private sector so that there is parity, because right now on average, the federal government employees are earning around 70-80% more than the private sector.  The employer, who is the taxpayer, cannot be paying federal employees that much greater than what we earn.  It’s just not practical.  It should be that a person comes in, does his job, and goes back to the private sector.

MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think congressmen should not be paid?

MR. MILLER: No, they need to have compensation, but as far as the preferential treatment they get from benefits, lifetime retirement accounts, no.  They also have legal protection when they speak on the floor, and that’s one alleged reason why Congressman Rangel made his speeches on the floor because he could then say whatever he wanted.  Along with that, congressional term limits need to be put in place.  It needs to be brought back to the point that it’s not a career; it is a post of honor.

MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think a Congress could be elected in our lifetimes which would vote to reduce their own pay and benefits?

MR. MILLER: I pray it does, because along with everything else within my campaign is if we do not make the bold and unpopular permanent decisions that need to be made today, we are close to the death of our country.  So something is going to give here very quickly over the next few years.

MRS. RONDEAU: Even the mainstream media is talking about an economic collapse.  Is there a way to avoid it?

MR. MILLER: I’m a supporter of the Fair Tax.  By bringing in the Fair Tax, you are going to enable or support the local economy, our economy, to become competitive in the global marketplace.  Our corporate tax rate would fall back into a stay-competitive position.  When Russia and China already started to use currencies other than the U.S. dollar 60-90 days ago in some of their exchanges, I personally in my travels have watched the U.S. dollar drop 50-60% value in international markets over the last 20-25 years.  Unless we do something to stabilize the U.S. dollar immediately, there is a very high chance that it will be replaced as the world’s reserve currency.  No one is really sure of the fallout from that, because it’s an unprecedented event.  One of the first things to do, other than stop the spending, is to identify and amortize the debt.  The second thing, for me, is to pay off the Chinese.  It’s identifying our debts, but we have to live within our means.  We have to stabilize the U.S. dollar, and that’s where the sacrifice comes in:  sacrificing the wants of today for the needs of tomorrow.  It’s going to be very difficult, and it’s going to require a tremendous sacrifice on the part of the entire country.  But if we don’t do it, someone else is going to do it for us.

MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think the current Congress has the ability to see the problem, and if so, do you think they have the will and fortitude to act?

MR. MILLER: Based on what I’m seeing right now, the budget which offers $6 billion in savings, which is less than six cents out of a dollar, it’s not even a starter.  So based on that, no.  Again, because they are in career positions, so much of it is based on political self-preservation.  To actually step forward and say, “No, we need to cut $400 billion out of the budget,” let alone going back to the GAO, it’s unlikely.  Here’s $100 billion, and they’re not even willing to support that at this point publicly.  In fairness, they may be doing it behind the scenes; they may be ready for the biggest promotion yet of cost-savings, but we are not aware of it.  That’s where I am losing faith and trust.

What this country needs is for the federal government to stop being the nanny state that it has become and to allow the pain that the country and the individuals need to go through, and with that is included the bailout and TARP programs — that’s what a free-market economy does.  It allows those who succeed to succeed and those who fail to fail.  With failure, comes pain, and that’s what this country needs:  to allow that natural flow to happen.  With that, we need to bring the best products to market and let the economy be free again.

For instance, I look at ethanol.  From the information I’ve seen, ethanol is running around $1.90 in subsidies per gallon.  Taxpayers are paying almost $2.00 a gallon to subsidize that.  Remove that; let the free market determine that.  That’s just one example of the pain and sacrifice that we need to go through.  It appears that our government wants to insulate rather than allow the process to take place.

MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think there’s a sector of the American society that is so entrenched in entitlements that, if the government were to eliminate those programs, they could not survive?

MR. MILLER: The country was founded on the concept of a family and extended family needing to provide for each other.  If your parents are from the World War II era, you can fully relate to their frugality; they used to save aluminum foil, for example.  It’s through that frugality and reliability that family members would rely on each other.  If there was one sandwich for an entire family, instead of pulling into a McDonald’s and spending more money, no, you shared what you had and took care of your immediate and extended family.  We need to return to that:  self-reliance and personal responsibility.  That’s what we have really lost in this country:  personal responsibility and accountability.

MRS. RONDEAU: Would that include a handicapped or mentally ill family member?

MR. MILLER: There are legitimate areas where assistance is needed, meaning that if you do have a disabled child or parent, then you are going to need some assistance.  But when you are fully capable of going out and performing a job, you do not need to be supported by the taxpayers.  That’s where the self-reliance and personal responsibility come in, and that person needs to be held accountable.

A very important item in my campaign is to resolve our illegal immigration crisis.  There are so many people overwhelming the system who are not American citizens who, if removed, would take a lot of pressure off our system.  That is something that I have laid out on the immigration page of my website, how legally we can resolve the immigration issue within two years without amnesty.  There should be no hesitation to place armored personnel on all borders to protect the American people and our interests.  That is something that, as president, I would do immediately.

MRS. RONDEAU: Why do you think Congress will not enforce the federal laws already in place to control illegal immigrants from coming in?

MR. MILLER: I don’t know why, but it appears that they are trying to utilize this group of individuals, illegal immigrants, as a voting bloc.  It is upwards of 20,000,000 people.  My whole campaign is based on what’s better for the country over the long term rather than an individual group of people or political party, for those who will come after us.  The laws are there.  Right on my immigration page, I laid out how simple it is.

The problems that are facing our country and destroying our country from within, as enormous as they are, could actually be solved very simply.  It will just take someone with the faith, the backbone, and the ideology to carry it out.  The first thing is to secure our borders; that can be done within a 90-day period.  Personnel can be dispatched onto our borders and we would have it secured.  We can stop the human trafficking, the drug trade, and all the illegal activities on the borders, and then from that, we would process individuals who are here illegally.

MRS. RONDEAU: So you are totally against amnesty for anyone who came into the country illegally?

MR. MILLER: There will be zero amnesty.

MRS. RONDEAU: How does your platform sit with the establishment Republican Party?

MR. MILLER: It’s an interesting deal, because I have introduced myself to Chairman Priebus with no response.

MRS. RONDEAU: Do you feel as if you fit into the Republican Party, or are you different?

MR. MILLER: I’m a common citizen running for President.  I’m not a lawyer; I’m not a multimillionaire.  So I believe I do not fit into the mold that they would like to see.  The American people have been conditioned to believe that presidential candidate is supposed to be somebody who is promoted within the system with a certain image.  That’s where, to me, we have lost our way.  So many Americans do not realize that the three requirements are over age 35, natural born Citizen, and 14 years of living within the country.  Those are the only three requirements for being the President.  There’s no education requirement.  Abraham Lincoln had two years of formal education, although he had home-schooling as well.  However, two years in the classroom was all he had.  But the power brokers have conditioned people to believe that a person has to have a certain classification to become president.  It is disheartening that the GOP has not acknowledged me when I have respected the process by filling out all of the paperwork and stepping forward, offering to be a public servant.

MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think the Republicans are of the same mindset as the Democrats regarding “establishment” politics?

MR. MILLER: I cannot speak for them, but it appears that it has to be someone who is marketable and their vision of “electable.”  Because the fund raising is so great, if they cannot have that polished person up there, they don’t want to take a chance.  Using my campaign as the common man for president, it hasn’t been done for so long, and at this point, they’re not acknowledging me.

MRS. RONDEAU: Is that a source of frustration for you?

MR. MILLER: It’s a source of energy for me.

MRS. RONDEAU: Where have you been campaigning?

MR. MILLER: The last year has been to establish myself with different media and to gain credibility. Now that we have a staff established, we will start going forward to the people, whether it be through the internet, through the media outlets that are receiving my campaign.

MRS. RONDEAU: Do you feel you can break this barrier of the mainstream media and obtain some coverage from them?

MR. MILLER: It will be interesting to see if we get that coverage, but this is going to be more of the people’s movement.  Hopefully what we can show is that you don’t have to have the mainstream; that at the end of the day, if we choose to, they do not control our lives and that if we choose to circumvent them, we will.  And it’s a choice of the people, through The Post & Email and other avenues, using me as an example, if we choose to perpetuate and spread word of my campaign, then it will prevail.  Then we don’t need them.  It’s totally up to the people.

When a lot of people hear “a common man running for President,” they are in disbelief.  They wonder, “Where’s the joke?”  But then once people get to have a conversation with me, review the campaign and what is being proposed, it’s amazing how they understand how far we have lost our way.  I am getting more and more people with credibility who are stepping forward saying, “It is our home.  This is our home.” And it’s time to step forward.

This is not my campaign; we call it “our” campaign.  Let’s say that I have 30 pages of content on my website.  I do not have all of the answers to our country’s problems, but the American people do.  Not the federal government, but the American people.  I am willing to listen to the American people and to put their solutions forward.  That’s what separates me from a lot of people.  The federal government is not the answer; it is the problem.  Until the federal government allows the people to solve our own problems, it’s not going to be fixed.  I would question any individual who comes forward and says he has all the answers.  It’s the American people’s home, and who better to solve the problems than the American people themselves?

If you have read my health care page, the world-renowned Mayo Clinic made its formal proposals to Congress in May 2009 for health care reform.  This was not on the front page of newspapers anywhere.  This is where the whole campaign is gaining credibility and validation:  when all of a sudden, people click on these links and say, “This really took place.  This is the Mayo Clinic; here are the formal documents that were submitted to Congress; why weren’t we aware of it?”  When you click on the base 250 members of the HPC (Health Policy Center) which created these proposals, even they are not stepping forward defending what they have promoted in a public forum, or at least the mainstream media is not giving them their time.  That’s something that just really makes you wonder what is going on in this country when you have the Mayo Clinic not even being listened to; their solutions are not being incorporated within our own government.

MRS. RONDEAU: Is the solution which the Mayo Clinic has recommended based on private companies offering insurance plans better than the federal government mandating people to buy a plan?

MR. MILLER: Yes, because, first-off, it’s unconstitutional for the government to mandate any citizen to make a purchase.  As our 45th President, I want to return the federal government to promote the general welfare and  to stop providing  the general welfare for the people.  With the career politicians, they have decided that they want to provide, but it’s not their job to provide.  That’s where the interdependency between the politician and the voter has come into place.  It’s going to be very painful to break that tie between promoting and providing, but that’s what our federal government’s job is.  It has created a nanny state.  The government’s purpose is not to provide bailouts and everything else; the taxpayers’ money should not be spent that way.  So hopefully people will start to take notice of what I’m offering to the American people and see how we can go forward.

One thing that I hope is that I have several different Tea Parties and then local groups who are looking to have me come and speak based on interviews, conversations, etc.  The fund raising level is still low, and until I get that fund raising, I can’t start doing the public speaking.  Something that I’m actually looking to is to get out there in front of crowds.  I will secure the border; I will resolve the illegal immigration crisis and allow our economy to be free again and let the people take care of the jobs, not the government.  This is what the people want.

When people look at the first 150 years of the country, they say, “It really was that simple, and the solutions really are that simple.”

MRS. RONDEAU: Do you have a closing statement to this interview?

MR. MILLER: I am a common citizen offering to be a public servant.  I am not a career politician who is making a promotion.  As President, in times of tragedy, I will not join our country for moment of silence; instead, I will lead our nation in a moment of silent prayer.  You can still honor the separation of church and state, but as a Judeo-Christian nation, with a silent prayer.

MRS. RONDEAU: Do you think that our movement away from a God-centered society has led to some of our problems?  Is there a direct correlation?

MR. MILLER: Definitely.  I believe the correlation is that if you remove God from the equation, now you have to depend on somebody.  That dependence now has shifted to the federal government and our elected leaders.  By returning to putting our Creator first and relying on Him first, I think there will be a big shift in our country.  We need to get back to our original foundation.

    > other ammendments that should be unconstitutional

    Mr Daywalker. It says should be not that it is. There are things that are constitutional per ammendment that should not be constitutional. That means we should ammend the ammendment or end it. and maybe reverse it. For example the ammendment that some people claim allows the Income Tax should be abolished. We have to go through the ammendment process to get rid of that ammendment.

    Also the ammendment that seems to allow anchor babies to be citizens should be fixed. It was never intended for that purpose. so lets fix it so that when illegals come illegally into this country to have a baby the new baby is NOT a citizen. No country allows that to happen. It is ridiculous and we should fix it. It should be unconstitutional for an anchor baby to be a citizen.

    I hope you understand my point better now.

    We should have more ammendments spelling out the powers of the people to sue the government in court with standings in all important cases. The power of the government derives from the people. WE THE PEOPLE have the power over the government and we should beef up that statement in no uncertain terms. For example the courts are stopping us from the exercise of our Grand Jury power. We should have the power to put crooked politicians directly into jails. No more baloney from the government trying to take away our powers.

  3. OK now, I have read every page, and every word on every page, of Mr Tom J. Miller’s website, and here are my comments in general…(1) If America is to survive, we had better elect Mr. Miller. (2) I have never seen any other Presidential hopeful outline on their website such a detailed, and precise “Action Plan”, and I highly commend Mr. Miller for doing this. (3) Criticism is easy, however one should not criticize him, or pass judgement until reading Miller’s website in its entirety, as I just did; then you may form your own opinion. (4) My opinion is, that he is our guy!. (5) Have you ever seen anyone spell out their plans with such details? I haven’t. (6) Now assuming Mr. Miller sets out to accomplish all of what he says he intends to do, and is only able to accomplish say 80% of it; isn’t that a whole lot better than voting for someone who makes no commitment on paper, and then does exactly 100% the opposite to everything that he had committed to verbally. (7) Mr. Miller has already proven that he is willing to listen to his constituents, evidenced by the few changes that he has recently made to his website. (8) I rest my case – “If you are truly serious about the healing of America, and the restoration of our Constitution, then you had better seriously look at Mr. Tom Miller for President. How many chances do you think we are going to get here?????

  4. Without a trace of Miller’s original response to Mrs. Rondeau’s question about eligibility, the interview now has Miller saying something different than he originally said. In the interest of journalistic integrity, a correction or revision (update?) of a published statement should not simply replace the original. There should be a transparent trail of “from this” to “now this.” But allow me to address Mr. Miller.

    Thomas Miller, in the revised version you say “I too have doubts about his [Obama’s] citizenship,” so why on your own website do you call Obama “fellow citizen” and say “I would give my life defending [Obama].” You would die defending a putative president whose citizenship you doubt? And that sort of judgment would make you a good president? Good grief.

    If you were serious about being president, surely you would have given more serious thought to our nation’s present constitutional crisis caused by the election of an ineligible president/commander-in-chief. Your self-disclosed failure to do so is most regrettable. Birdy’s simple explanation below (Saturday, March 19, 2011 at 6:09 PM) should make you embarrassed to remain so aloof from the issue.

    1. By golly, you are right Harry H. My cut-and-paste quote from the article, written in a comment below – “I am offering … to let the judicial process play out as it may” – is no where to be found in the article. We complain about Obama supporters silently changing articles. Is PnE going to start doing this? If an article needs a correction, then insert a correction statement. Don’t rewrite the historical record, or you will lose your reputation for journalistic integrity.
      Mrs. Rondeau replies: Mr. Miller sent in what he said was a clarification of his previous statement, which is why it was substituted and the article labeled as an update. Please send me the cut-and-paste, if you will, and it can be reinserted. If anyone would care to assist in editing and publishing, please contact me.

  5. Mr Miller

    I went to your web page. at the end you write. & I choke on this.

    A quick note to President Barack H. Obama.

    Mr. President,

    As a fellow citizen, if called upon, I would give my life defending you, the Office you represent and our country.
    end quote

    Mr Miller I will never die defending an usurper to the Presidency. You have a major problem with your statement. Mr Miller I am looking for a statement that you will hold him accountable for his crimes. That the full force of the law will be brought upon Obama for his crimes. Treason is punishable by Death. And included in Treason are all those who are supporting his High Treason.

    And Mr Miller your statement that you are going to spend your time on the problems we face. Might I remind you that there is no problem that is more important that to get rid of a Trojan Horse Usurper and restore the Constitution.

    I also look for a stronger statement that you will put the support and defence of the Constitution as the cornerstone of your administration in all things. Your statement on the Constitution is all fluff and no punch.

    I hope to see you fix these items immediately. You are forgiven if you fix them quickly. Now lets get on with the job of saving America and its Constitution.

    The department of Energy is totally unconstitutional so completely abolish it. do not keep it for any purpose. You might have a constitutional office take care of constitutional work. All UnConstitutional work and spending is to stop IMMEDIATELY. It must stop because it is illegal. If you want to change something then change the constitution first. And I do not see any changes needed except to get rid of other ammendments that should be unconstitutional.

    1. > other ammendments that should be unconstitutional

      An Amendment to the Constitution cannot be unconstitutional by definition. It is part of the Constitution and possibly changes the Constitution.

      > If you want to change something then change the constitution first.

      I think the Constitution is the thing we need to change *last*, if at all. It has served us well for over 200 years.
      You sound like one of the Obama Marxist goons who are salivating at the thought of changing the Constitution.

  6. Mr Miller

    Nice to have to post here. I expect you will be reading what I post now. I hope you will respond.

    #1. http://www.judicialwatch.org/
    Judicial Watch does not seem to have anything listed on Obama not being eligible. You are either misinformed or obfuscating the issue. The issue is very clear and you can KNOW the answer immediately. It takes 2 parents who are citizens to be a NBC. Obama had only 1 citizen parent. Therefore no birth certificate or anything else is necessary to make the correct decision. Obama is NOT a NBC and he is an usurper to the Presidency.

    Now I await your response. I hope you understand now.

    By the way, back in 1948 all the kids in my Chicago neighborhood who were age 5 or 6 understood and knew the correct definition of NBC. They all said both your parents must be citizens at the time of your birth and you must have been born in USA. I am a NBC. I knew that for sure at age 5.

    Are you going to tell me that all the professionals who are politicians do not know the answer to this question? Are you going to say that Obama claims to have taught Constitutional Law at Univ of Chicago and he does not know? Every politician in all of Wash DC does not know.

    Give me a break, Mr. Miller. If you are running for President, you should know the requirements. If you are a NBC then be proud of it. I am proud of it. I refuse to allow anyone who is not a NBC to be my president. Obama has never been a president. He is and always has been a confidence man. A bunko man. A cheat and petty Chicago crook. I was born and grew up in Chicago I know all about corruption in Chicago politics. It is super deeply corrupted. Even back then Chicago citizens had to pay politicians to get a job. You paid to work back in the 1950’s under Mayor Richard J Daley. I am sure it is much worse now. The city is still run by the same crooked crooks.

    Where do you stand, Mr. Miller, on this issue? You now have all the information you need. Obama says he was born a British Citizen. What say you? Can a British citizen be a Natural Born American citizen? Did the founding fathers fight 8 years of war to get freedom from Britain to allow a British citizen to become the President of the USA?

    Judicial Watch is doing nothing about this issue. Hell will freeze over before Judicial Watch tells you Obama is an usurper. I have told you. No need to wait for JW. Let’s see if you can make decisions as a President or are you just another fake politician afraid of the truth.

  7. Mr. Thomas J. Miller, It is indeed refreshing to see someone coming out to run for President, that is serious enough to clearly articulate his own platform, what he stands for, and how he intends to lead. I clearly admire your doing this, and totally agree with most everything you so clearly state, that you represent. This is a very important first step that you have taken, and the folks should take you very seriously.

    We would not be in this horrific mess had obama not gone way out of his way to carefully hide his agenda, and all his personal records from the American people; it sure fooled all of the liberals, and lots others too (but never again will the gullible be so easily duped). As it turns out we may very well have another osama bin laden on our hands, or worse; I perceive absolutely no difference in the criminality of the two.

    Anyway back to your running for President; I wish you great success and feel that your forthright honesty is not only refreshing, but most essential to your restoring sanity and good Government to our precious, and unique United States of America. There has never been a Country quite like the USA, and may never be again – I just pray that we haven’t already lost our greatest moment. It will take a mighty steady hand on the tiller, and a uncompromising faith in God to lead us back from the brink that we are now so precariously hanging over. “Folks – we had best listen to what this man has to say!!!”.

  8. Until Mr. Obama produces his original birth certificate, I too have doubts about his citizenship and whether or not he is qualified to be President. Right now, though, Judicial Watch and many others are pursuing this very subject about his authenticity and we shall all await these results. In the meantime, I will continue to concentrate on the solutions to the problems facing our Nation as I run for President of the United States of America.

    1. DNC Fight The Smears (http://www.fightthesmears.com/articles/5/birthcertificate)

      “When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children.

      US Constitution (http://www.usconstitution.net/const.html#A2Sec1)

      “No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President;”

      Natural Law (http://www.lonang.com/exlibris/vattel/vatt-119.htm)

      “The natives, or natural-born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens”

      Barack Hussein Obama II may be a citizen, but he is not a natural born citizen and therefore he is not eligible to be President. No birth certificate is needed to make this conclusion. Both of his parents were not citizens at the time of his birth, only one.

    2. Mr. Miller,

      Would you please direct me to a source that describes what Judicial Watch is doing with regard to Obama’s citizenship and eligibility?

  9. MRS. RONDEAU: What do you think about the Obama eligibility question?

    MR. MILLER: … I am offering … to let the judicial process play out as it may.

    Cross Mr. Miller off your list.

    So far, Donald Trump is the only candidate who expresses concern about Obama’s eligibility, but in his ABC interview he gave a very cautious response. Certainly, he hasn’t offered to thoroughly investigate and resolve the issue if elected, and he isn’t calling out for an investigation and resolution today. What is Donald Trump’s background? Is he a natural born Citizen?

    1. Donald Trump was born in Queens, NY I think he is the only candidate that can beat Obama at this point. He has enough money and smarts and business saavy. Important also is that he has alot of charisma. I like the fact that he said “if he is president, America will be respected again”. I believe him. There is only so much he can say right now about eligibility issue, same for others. They can all be destroyed by the regime.

      I will vote for him or for John Bolton.

  10. No one can be cosidered a serious candidate for any office if they refuse to give a
    staight answer to the question of obama’s eligibility. There is only one right answer; he
    IS a fraud.

  11. If Mr. Miller respected the office he seeks, how could he blow off the eligibility question as he did? He demonstrates extreme disrespect for the Presidency by ignoring its usurpation by an ineligible president-elect. Miller is not worthy of the office he seeks.

  12. I would vote for Mr.Miller right now,if this was election time. A clean sweep of our elected non-representative representatives is much in need if we are to save America. A common man for President is exactly what this Nation needs, not lifetime political appointees. One of the main reasons we are where we are is because of the following quote:
    “Let not men openly irreligious and immoral become your legislators; for how can you expect good laws to be made by men who have no fear of God … and who boldly trample on the authority of his commands?…
    Time to win America back…Kudos to you Mr. Miller, and here’s hoping you are the next President of the United States.

  13. What a waste of space-the Obama eligibility dodge was really a turn-off. He completely evaded the question.Even Trump has questioned the background of Obama! Andy Martin has certainly questioned his eligibility-and this guy wants to let the Judicial process work out-and doesnt raise the issue as to Obama? The eligibility issue is the KEY and basis for the legality of the leadership and operation of Government! It starts there! If the guy giving the orders is illegal or is even perceived as illegal-what do you have? The policies are all BS-you can diddle about policy all day long-but the authority to lead is absolutely fundamental!
    Heres a question for you. Is it an actionable violation of the voting rights act if the State or local officials who authorize the placement of names on a ballot fail to determine the eligibility of those candidates-regardless of any legally prescribed duty? Would this failure to act (or the acting to place illegal candidates on a ballot) not be a deprivation of the right of a citizen to participate in a legal election?

  14. A good man with a good message.

    Maybe we need to force the MSM to cover all candidates.

    I hope he gets more publicity and a good vote in New Hampshire to give him visibility.

    I came to the same conclusion in 2008 that the person we need is the common citizen for President. That was one thing I really liked about Sarah Palin. She is a regular human being.

    I like pretty much everything Tom Miller has to say.

    1. Sarah Palin is OWNED by Rupert Murdoch (owner of Fox). It is reported on internet that he is a Bilderberg-which means New World Order! America will never survive with any more puppets from the Bilderbergs. Neither Fox or ANY of their puppets will speak up about the constitutional crisis due to Obummer being a usurper!

    1. Me too!!!

      Perhaps Mr Miller would take some time to read the many fact filled editorials and other articles (also full of FACTS) here and then make a further statement on this.

      Eligibility has to be “Front and Foremost”!!! No “joking around”, no “nodding and winking” or “waiting and seeing”. Also a commitment to see each and every co-conspirator to the usurpation tried and punished to the maximum is essential, in my humble opinion.

    2. I did also. I would rather have seen a response like “Evidence seems to point to the fact that Obama is a usurper.” He’s either uneducated on the topic, or he is not expressing the truth.

      1. I did too, I won’t support anyone who avoids or evades this issue nor do I have time for anyone who pretends to not understand it since it’s very easy to understand! Born on US soil to parents who are both citizens at the time of the birth, it’s not rocket science! I’m totally fed up with all of them…politicians, media, etc…they’re all complicit in this biggest fraud and crime in our history!

  15. > When visiting his campaign website and clicking on the link for his resume, a waving American flag appears. When The Post & Email asked Mr. Miller if that was intentional, he said, “That is my resume’, natural born Citizen, over the age of 35 years

    Is this a joke? Is the US flag his birth certificate? This man shows less of his credentials than Obummer!

    I would expect any serious candidate to *start* with his birth certificate, especially to underscore the importance of eligibility requirements.
    Is this man no better than Andy Martin and his “dancing around” the issue?

  16. I agree with Mr.Miller,first time to hear about the benefits and the greed on capital hill,The one thing he needs to find out about is the Federal reserve,and the income tax.endfinancialfraud.org sound money now.
