The result will be:

  • a 15% to 30% raise in pay for all working Americans;
  • the end of filing income tax returns;
  • the end of the time, effort and money required to comply with the current 100 year-old progressive income tax rules and regulations;
  • a significant increase in economic activity at the state and local level, broadening the tax base, resulting in increased tax revenues to provide vital services to the People where they live;
  • a reduction in Federal government spending by more than 50%;
  • more transparent and targeted legislation by our representatives in Congress;
  • a return to the governing model set forth in the Constitution, as the Founding Fathers intended;
  • more freedom and prosperity than any American has experienced in the last 100 years; and,
  • an America that will once again serve as the global beacon of freedom for its citizens to enjoy and the rest of the world to emulate.

To the millions of us who are awake and aware, the enemy is easily recognized by the words and deeds of its leaders and their minions.

Anyone advocating policies based on individual or corporate income taxes, tax brackets, tax breaks, class warfare, quantitative easing, fiat currency, fractional reserve banking, derivatives of any sort, paycheck withholding of taxes, or the prosecution of any American under our 100 year-old tax laws, is to be considered an “enemy of freedom”.

These are just a few of the weapons the enemy uses to keep us enslaved and afraid.

My plan disarms them with the stroke of a Presidential pen.

If you take the proper action, these things will cease to exist in 21st century America and freedom will be restored.

You only need two weapons to start, and finish, the revolution ~ one pen and one vote.  These two weapons have proven throughout history to hold the power to change nations without one shot being fired or one life being lost.

The American Citizen Party was formed in 2009 to provide “We the People” with a vision of unprecedented freedom and prosperity; a revolutionary, yet, Constitutional, plan to accomplish it; and true citizen candidates to vote FOR to implement it.

More than 230 years ago, the Founding Fathers recognized the natural tendency of those in power to evolve into tyrants, and for governments to exceed their authority.  So, in their timeless wisdom, they provided the Constitutional means for a peaceful transition of power, according to the will of the People.

Between now and the next election, and during all subsequent election cycles, the “enemies of freedom” will reveal themselves even more.  And, we will be ready.

There are many peaceful ways to win the 21st Century American Revolution:

  • The enemy defeats itself with unwinnable ideas, poor strategies and unwise actions;
  • The enemy loses its support in the form of campaign funds, staff, volunteers and voters;
  • The enemy surrenders when it finds itself surrounded by an overwhelming number of free-thinking, freedom-loving Americans who refuse to play by their rules;
  • The enemy is defeated by the most powerful weapon on earth – your vote.

Any, or all, of those ways are possible because the enemies of freedom are prideful, arrogant, angry, and on the wrong side of history, which makes them weak, but still dangerous.

We, on the other hand, are of sound mind, resolute in purpose, sufficient in number, armed with the Constitution, and on the right side of history, which makes us strong and undefeatable.

Like any other revolution against tyranny and oppression, to succeed, you must be willing to take action, and resist, at the appropriate time, according to the plan.

So, what IS the plan?

The following is an overview:

  1. You must get involved in the political process at the local and state levels, recruiting American Citizen Party candidates, running for office yourself, conducting petition drives to get the candidates placed on the ballot, and serve as election judges and poll watchers, etc.  The enemy is firmly entrenched and will lie, cheat, steal and commit voter fraud to stay in power.
  2. You must vote for Bob McNeil for President on November 8, 2016.  I have a guaranteed method for protecting you from harm when you participate in the revolution, using the exclusive powers of the Executive Branch, as stated in Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution.  No other Presidential candidate in the history of our Nation has had the vision, or the willingness, to use this power for the benefit of the People.  I do, and, I will.
  3. I will sign the one-page Proclamation of Freedom at 1:00pm on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2017.  This document is your protection from harm and the signing ceremony will officially begin the 21st Century American Revolution.
  4. On January 20, 2017, your first act of resistance will be to stop paying corporate and individual income taxes.  This single action represents the heart of the revolution and will weaken the enemies of freedom by robbing them of approximately $2 TRILLION per year in money that they need to survive.  At the same time, it will stimulate the U.S. economy, create a dramatic rise in GDP and the stock market, create jobs, bring offshore corporate capital home, and set our Nation on the path of freedom and prosperity for generations to come.
  5. Thereafter, your instructions are to live your life in economic freedom, enjoying the use of 100% of your money to spend, save, invest, and give away as you choose, thereby contributing to a thriving American economy.

Does this mean the end of paying taxes?

No.  But it does mean the end of paying income taxes under our current system.  After all, the Federal income tax, imposed in 1913, is the source of one of the greatest acts of fraud ever committed against the free People of America.

I know this to be true because I have been battling the IRS and the Department of Justice on this matter since 2005.  It started when I asked the IRS this simple question:

“What law makes an ordinary American liable for the Federal income tax?”

In more than 200 pieces of correspondence to date, I have not received an answer.

Why?  Because no such law exists.

For proof, educate yourself at my website:

Would you pay a tax, under threat of wage garnishment, liens, levies, prosecution and imprisonment, if there was no law requiring you to do so?

I won’t.  So, why would you?

Don’t you think it is time to say “No more fraud!”?

In 21st century America, ALL citizens will pay taxes according to this philosophy:

“If you breathe our air, drink our water, use our roads, and sleep under the blanket of freedom provided by our military, you should pay taxes.”

In 21st century America, “We the People” will fund a much smaller Federal government in the Constitutional way our ancestors did before the imposition of the income tax:

  1. Indirect Taxes - following the “rule of uniformity
  2. Direct Taxes - following the “rule of apportionment

Indirect Taxes

Article I, Section 8, Clause 1:  “The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;”

Indirect taxes work like this: One rate (uniformity) is applied to a taxable item, included in the price according to sound accounting principles, and ultimately paid by the person who buys the item (you).  The distinguishing characteristic of this type of tax is that it is avoidable.  If you don’t buy a taxable item, you don’t pay the tax.

Direct Taxes

Article I, Section 2, Clause 3:  “Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several states which may be included in this Union, according to their respective Numbers…..”

Article I, Section 9, Clause 4:  “No Capitation, or other direct, Tax shall be laid, unless in Proportion to the Census or enumeration herein before directed to be taken.”

Direct taxes work like this:  Through legislation, Congress appropriates funds for a particular purpose and the President signs the bill into law.  The total amount appropriated is divided (apportioned) among the states in proportion to each state’s population.  Larger states pay a larger share.  Smaller states pay a smaller share.  The states are responsible for collecting the tax from its citizens and sending the revenues to the U.S. Treasury, by whatever method allowed by state law.

As you can see, ultimately, all taxes are paid by “We the People” and, if we return to the taxing principles set forth in the Constitution, we will all pay our “fair share”, as the Founding Fathers intended.

In future elections, every candidate from every political party will be asked this question by the People:

What is your plan to restore freedom to all American Citizens?

Only American Citizen Party candidates will have the answer - the “Economic Freedom Act“.

What is the “Economic Freedom Act“?

It is a powerful piece of legislation that was designed to accomplish the following:

  • Reduce the size and scope of the Federal government by eliminating all failing programs and those not authorized by the Constitution;
  • Repeal all laws that have taken economic freedom from the American people;
  • Shift the balance of power from Washington, D.C. back to the States and to the People, as the Founding Fathers intended;
  • Restore freedom to ALL American citizens.

Vote Democrat?  Vote Republican?

Never again!

To restore your freedoms, stop holding your nose when you cast your vote.

Stop voting for the candidates selected for you by the media.

Change your mindset and vote your principles.

Vote American Citizen Party!

Here’s what you must do, beginning now:

  • Join the American Citizen Party (it’s FREE!);
  • Subscribe to our blog posts by entering your name and email address at the bottom of this website (our blogs are meant to educate the general public on a variety of subjects);
  • Donate money to the Party to advance the cause of freedom (the American Citizen Party is registered with the Federal Election Commission as a Political Action Committee with a $5,000 per person limit);
  • Purchase “American Citizen Party” items from our store to become visible supporters of freedom (in keeping with law of supply and demand, the more of you who purchase items, the faster prices will come down);
  • Volunteer your time and whatever skills you have to the party (all free-thinking, freedom-loving Americans are welcome);
  • Raise money to build our grass roots organization (every dollar matters and will be properly accounted for);
  • Run for public office as an American Citizen Party candidate (this is the Party you’ve been waiting for).

The “21st Century American Revolution” begins when YOU make the commitment to participate.  The America that emerges will serve as the global model of freedom and prosperity for its citizens to enjoy and the world to emulate.

I know this is true because the foundation of the Plan to achieve it is based on the Constitution, sound accounting principles, and economic law, which leads to a predictable outcome.

We the Peoplewill take our country back from the “Enemies of Freedom”.

In the coming months and years, when one person asks another if they are a Democrat or a Republican, the growing response will be “I am a proud member of the American Citizen Party.”

There is a brighter future for America.

Be a part of the “21st Century American Revolution” to make that happen.

Two Opportunities to Speak on the Radio

By Bob McNeil · May 12, 2011 · Filed in American Citizen Party, Presidential Candidate · No Comments »

Bob Since 2005, when my tax battle began, I have developed an intimate relationship with the U. S. Department of Justice and the Internal Revenue Service. They have my name, address, phone number, Social Security number and other personal information and we have engaged in conflict many times.

Not a night goes by that I don’t go to sleep wondering if tomorrow will be the day they conduct an early morning raid to search my home and confiscate everything in sight to collect on a Federal Income Tax liability that does not exist. (more…)

A Message to Mark

By Bob McNeil · April 8, 2011 · Filed in American Citizen Party, Presidential Candidate · 1 Comment »

Bob As you can imagine, I get email from people from all over the country asking my opinion about certain issues, challenging my position on others and offering support and advice as I lay out my plan for the 21st Century American Revolution.

I thought I’d share my response to a recent message from a supporter named Mark:


Hi McNeil,

Hello Mark.  Thank you for taking the time to look at my website… and for writing.
Just saw your history clip.  We went in to the military the same year, I flew down to San Diego on June 19, (my birthday). I was in the Navy, on two destroyers, and a CLG and did one year 70 to 71 in country Viet Nam, where they dressed me like a Marine and I spent a year in fire pits, towers, roving patrol, village patrols and did village sweep with the Marines… I thought I was safe in the Navy, but ended up getting shot at anyway!

Thank you for your service.  In September 1968, at age 19, I enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps and was sent to San Diego in January 1969 for 10 weeks of boot camp.  From there, I was sent to Camp Pendleton for ITR (Infantry Training Regiment).  I had been assigned MOS 2851 (Aviation Radio Repairman), so, after ITR, I returned to San Diego for one year of electronics training, where I finished near the top of my class.  From there, I was assigned to Marine Air Traffic Control Unit 78 (MATCU 78) at Quantico Air Base, Virginia.  My unit consisted of a radar unit, radio van, and air traffic control van and was designed to be airlifted to a remote airbase to provide air traffic control for fixed and rotary wing aircraft.  MATCU 78 was never deployed to Viet Nam, so I served my 3 years stateside and was separated from active duty at Quantico in January 1972.
I see you’re a social credit proponent. That maybe the only way to go. For sure we need to send the International Zionist bankers packing… and send the National debt with them, they created it!

That’s right.  End the Federal Reserve… restore the dollar to soundness…. end our 100 year-old, 70,000 page,  progressive income tax system…. install a national sales tax with my innovative “Vote With Your Dollars” feature….put controls on Congress to limit its ability to add amendments and earmarks to non-related legislation…. and restore freedom to ALL American citizens.
In any case, you seem a straight arrow. But, I think you must understand that the American People have had it with the “system”.  So, to get where you want to go, you must demonstrate strength and enough personality to identify with the angry masses of betrayed voters. People are looking for a real leader, who can lead the way and project enough personal strength to stay the course. Being a leader is an identification and association process that must resonate.  Resonating is done at the moment of a sound byte, a speech a photo op and such. So you need a PR staff who’s as savvy as the worst of the one’s the democrats and republicans have. It’s a fight fire with fire game, are you ready? You can’t make it just on a smile and a squeaky clean record. Just a little FYI.

My family and friends think of me as a straight arrow, as do my clients and business associates.  And, while I agree with you that I can’t just show up with a smile and a squeaky clean record, it’s a good place to start.  I’ve never been handcuffed, arrested, or spent a night in jail.  The muckrakers and yellow journalists will have to dig deep to find anything that would disqualify me from running for President.  But, I fully expect them to try…. or just make things up.

In my 62 years, I have been placed in a variety of leadership positions….. as captain of a number of sports teams as a young man…… as a Sergeant in the Marine Corps…… as the father of two daughters……. as a corporate auditor leading a team of co-workers on multi-million dollar financial reviews both foreign and domestic…. as a Pro Se litigant defending myself in Federal District Court against an out-of-control IRS agent and the Department of Justice (I won) and now, as the leader of the 21st century American revolution.  Each of those opportunities came with their own set of challenges, requiring me to use all of my skills and abilities to overcome them. 

And….. here I stand.

You should also know that, although I’ve never been elected to public office, I didn’t just arrive on the political scene.

In 2006, out of my personal frustration with the “system”, I conceived of my plan to restore freedom to ALL American citizens.  In 2007, in the solitude of my home office, I sat down with a blank computer screen, a copy of the Constitution and 30+ years of experience as an accountant, corporate auditor and business consultant, and began researching and writing the plan, bouncing ideas off of friends, family and strangers along the way.  One year later, the plan was complete, just in time for the 2008 Presidential election.

Growing up, I never thought about being President of the United States.  It was simply out of reach for a common person like me.  So, my intent was to give my plan to someone with national name recognition who would take it and run for President on a platform of restoring freedom to ALL American citizens.  But, as I began looking for that one person who shared my vision and values, I realized, in one of those “Ah! Ha!” moments, that, if there was a professional politician out there who had any intention of restoring our freedoms, he/she would have done it already.  So, in 2008, meeting the only two Constitutional requirements for President, I ran a four-month campaign as an independent write-in candidate, receiving a small number of votes from supporters across the nation.

From that experience, I learned that there are an untold number of American citizens who have “had it” with our current 2-party system and are hungry for freedom.  Because of our Nation’s history of political corruption, the biggest challenge I faced then, and continue to face now, is the belief by the People that their vote doesn’t matter and won’t make any difference in the outcome of our elections.  The 2010 election clearly demonstrated that this is not true.  But, with the shift in power back to the Republicans, we now see that merely moving left and right every two/four years will not bring about the fundamental change necessary to restore America to the Constitutional principles on which it was founded.  Both political parties must be purged from power and reduced to minority status for all time.

I founded and chartered the American Citizen Party in the state of Texas in February 2009 for the purpose of recruiting citizen representatives to run for public office at all levels of government to implement my plan.  It will also serve as the vehicle for my Presidential run in 2012.  Politically, I believe it will be more effective to challenge the incumbent politicians with the slogan “Rally all ye American Citizens!!” instead of “Rally all ye independents!!”  I see the latter as sort of like herding cats.  But, the American people will prove me right or wrong.

Suggestion: Lead a nation wide strike against fiat money and plastic money… Money is now what is being used as a weapon against the American people by the counterfeiters and con artists at the Fed, the BiS, and treasury department.  They are using tax dollars to imprison us in countless ways… It’s not a war of bombs and bullets, it’s a war of financial tyranny.  The bottom line is take a stance, and also get some savvy PR folks to back you. 

Proclaim fiat money holidays to get attention .

We’re on the same track, but, I’m ahead of you by a few years.  Leading a nationwide strike against fiat and plastic money is fraught with danger.  (Read up on President Andrew Jackson and the trials, tribulations and assasination attempts he endured in the 1830’s to eliminate the Central Bank). 

My plan provides the blueprint for a peaceful 21st century American revolution, utilizing the greatest act of civil disobedience in our Nation’s history….. the refusal of all American citizens to pay taxes under our 100 year-old, 70,000 page progressive income tax system.  There will be no riots in the streets or police action taken against the People.  This will be a silent revolution that will come about in the safety of our homes and offices using the most powerful weapon on earth…. a ballpoint pen. 

The 21st Century American Revolution is this:  At 1:00pm on January 20, 2013, every W2 employee will change Line 7 of their W4 form to read “Exempt”, every self-employed person will refuse to send their quarterly tax payment to the Department of Treasury, and every working American will refuse to file a tax return on April 15th.  In addition, every American business, from multinational corporations to Mom and Pop operations, will stop sending corporate income and payroll taxes to Washington, D.C.  Those actions will reduce government tax receipts by about $2 TRILLION and send a STRONG message to Congress that if it won’t cut spending, “We the People” will. 

Due to the administrative complexities of the tax code, it takes about 9 months for the IRS computers to generate the form letter “CP59 - Request for Your Tax Return”.  That’s plenty of time for the American people to adjust to bringing home 100% of their pay to spend, save, invest or give to charity, as they choose.  With the transfer of more than $2 TRILLION back into the pockets of the American people, the citizens will experience a level of freedom and prosperity unknown by anyone born in the last 100 years.  I pity the judge or politician who takes action to revert to the old system. 

Unfortunately, this will only come to pass if the American voters elect a President “of the people” who is willing to exercise the powers of the Executive Branch, as set forth in the Constitution, for the benefit of ALL citizens…… and to endure the consequences of that action.

I am that man.

I’m talking specifically about the Article II Section 2 power of the President to pardon anyone for any crime (except impeachment).  As we all know, the IRS, with the support of the Department of Justice, deals harshly with those who challenge our tax system.  Fortunately, both of those entities report to the Executive Branch.  As President, I will call for the resignation of all employees of the IRS and DOJ, as well as immediate release of all persons currently imprisoned for tax evasion, willful failure to file tax returns and all other tax-related crimes.

Bottom line…. I will protect you from harm when you choose to participate in the revolution to restore your economic freedom.

For details, please read the 2-page “Proclamation of Freedom” in the “Important Documents” section on the American Citizen Party website:

Thanks again for writing, Mark.


Our freedoms come from God and are secured by the U.S. Constitution, thanks to the wisdom and foresight of the Founding Fathers.  We only lose our freedoms when we allow others to take them from us by force, or in a more passive way, through laws, regulations and ordinances passed by corrupt and power-hungry politicians at all levels of government.

I, for one, cherish my freedoms and refuse to give them up.  From now until November 6, 2012, it is my mission to inspire all freedom-loving Americans to stand with me to take our freedoms back.  If you haven’t figured it out by now, the 21st Century American Revolution is YOU taking bold action to free yourself from a lifetime of economic slavery brought about by laws that were passed more than 100 years ago. 

You hold in your hand the key to open the shackles and set yourself free.  You always have. 

The key to freedom is your vote.  And, as long as you honor the Constitution, you will always have it.

Once lost, it will be hard to get it back.

In future elections, use your vote wisely.

Vote for American Citizen Party candidates.

If there isn’t a candidate, run for office yourself.

If you don’t want to run for office, volunteer your time, effort and money to support the 21st Century American Revolutionaries who do.

Are YOU willing to take the action necessary to restore your freedoms?

I am.

It is time to purge Congress of the Democrats and Republicans and return our country to the People.

Stay tuned.
