The People’s Initiative to Hold Government Accountable-Peter Konetchy

A brief summary of the 2016 Michigan Constitutional Amendment Initiative cited as “A Peoples Initiative to Hold Government Accountable.” It defines the act of Betraying Your Oath of Office and establishes a People’s Grand Jury to indict for a trial by jury if charges of committing this act are considered probable. A public official found guilty, by a jury of their peers, of Betraying Their Oath of Office must step down from office and lose their public pension.

The initiative consists of three parts:

(1) Definition of the act “Betraying Your Oath of Office” as: Each instance when a Public Servant betrays their Oath of Office to support provisions within the Federal or State Constitutions by failing to enforce the many specific limitations on usurpation of power by government and failing to secure the People’s God-given rights specifically protected within both Constitutions.

(2) Creation of a People’s Grand Jury, created and operated by the people themselves, totally free from government control, to determine if a public servant has betrayed their of office, or if a rule, law, or regulation being imposed upon the people of Michigan is unconstitutional.

(3) Charges found valid by the People’s Grand Jury will be brought to court to be decided before a jury of the people.

Hearing Dates and Times- People’s initiative to hold government accountable

This initiative will be passed directly by the people and added as written into the Michigan Constitution. It will not be subject to legislative review or modification, but all legislators and public servants will be subject to its provisions.

Every official within this State swears on their sacred honor to support the provisions within the United States and Michigan Constitutions.

Since the Constitution of the United States severely limits federal authority to a few specific functions required for our Union to interact in the world community and repeatedly prohibits Washington from addressing, interfering with, or imposing its will over any aspect of the daily lives of the people or the routine operation of the states, every official within the State of Michigan MUST enforce these limitations on government.

PRESS RELEASE-MARCH 3, 2016

PRESS RELEASE:

March 3, 2016

On February 22nd, 2016, The People’s Initiative to Hold Government Accountable presented their petition, to the Board of State Canvassers Meeting, in Lansing, MI. This petition is an avenue that will allow residents of Michigan a way to fight back against unconstitutional laws and regulations. Michigan citizens currently have no recourse, other than recall, to respond to unlawful behavior on the part of our public servants. Ironically the board rejected the petition because it was unconstitutional. However, then they refused to point out how or why this petition was unconstitutional?

This rejection is an insult to the citizens of Michigan. All public servants have taken an Oath upon entering office and being paid by the taxpayers of Michigan to uphold and defend the U.S. and Michigan Constitutions. This petition would allow a vote of the people on the November ballot to decide if ignoring or going against the Supreme Law of the Land is a crime. The people of Michigan have the right to petition their government (Bill of Rights, Amendment I., U.S Constitution) and the residents of Michigan have the right to vote on this matter.

Why is this initiative needed? Because for decades our public servants have been negotiating away the rights of both the people and State without authority or repercussions.

In Lansing on Monday, March 7, 2016, at 9:30 a.m. The People’s Initiative to Hold Government Accountable, will present this petition for a second time in hopes of being able to act on their Constitutional right to “petition the Government for a redress of grievances”. The public is invited to witness this event by attending the hearing on Monday which will take place at the State Capitol Building, Room 424.

We can continue to petition, plead, and/or protest with our legislators to do right, but without any means to force their accountability, we leave ourselves at their discretion, their mercy — which has historically been sold to the highest bidder. We’re seen as little more than an irritation to whom they give lip service, but very little else.

We can either fight, plead, or submit. This initiative provides the people the very real means to fight, to force accountability of our public servants. If they betray our trust — they’ll face the wrath of the people and be forced to forfeit any gain they reaped by their betrayal.
