Proposed Oath of Office Restoration – by Dave Champion

Whereas, good governance demands public officers be held accountable to the People for their actions,

Whereas, the purpose of the oath of office is to create a legally binding obligation to the People of a state or the United States,

Whereas, unalienable Rights and civil rights constitute a prohibition against government action,

All officers of a state of the Union and the United States shall be personally liable to the citizens of the states of the Union for any violation of the Citizen’s unalienable rights and shall be liable to the citizens of the United States for any violation of the citizen’s civil rights.

A citizen alleging a violation of his rights may bring a common law suit against the officer of a state of the Union or an officer of the United States before a state court in the state in which the violation occurred. Trial shall be decided by a jury of the plaintiff’s peers. No statutory enactment is necessary to establish such suit. This Amendment is self executing. The United States is without jurisdiction in all such suits.

The defendant shall not be allowed the assistance of counsel or other legal assistance to a degree greater than the plaintiff enjoys. Immediately upon notice of suit both parties shall file a detailed declaration with the court declaring the full scope of their legal assistance. The court shall restrict the defendant to the like resources of the plaintiff as stated upon the plaintiff’s declaration. Intentional misrepresentation on the declaration filed with the court shall be punishable by two years in prison.

Awards against a government officer shall be paid by the officer, not the government. Nor shall the officer’s salary or other remuneration be increased to compensate the officer for the payment of damages from the suit.

A claim by the officer that he was ordered to commit the act shall not be a defense to a suit under this Amendment.

Judicial officers are not exempt in any way or any degree from this Amendment. The judicial branch is without authority to rule on the constitutionality of this Amendment.
