The crowd is pumped for their candidate and media devices around the world are connecting hundreds of millions of listeners to the Garden's floor on 14 September 2008. The Garden is a-buzz with raucous delegates.
Announcer: "Ladies and gentlemen, it is my honor to introduce your candidate, and the future 44th president of the United States, Jeffrey Allen Miller."
The crowd erupts as Miller emerges to smile and wave at his supporters. The Garden is out of control with cheers, dancing, and applause. Miller takes the podium and breaks into the noise, "Thank you...Thank you very much."
The noise subsides as the candidate begins:
There are risks for both, but as your 44th president of the United States, my White House will define a new governmental system that empowers its people, it will remove profiteering from basic human needs, and the federal government will no longer require personal income taxes to operate. [applause]
Of three candidates running for president in 2008, the Democrat and the Republican are giving standard lip-service to which I say 'We don't believe you anymore.' [applause]
I am the only true conservative.
Republican and Democrat leaders of our day grow this government by supporting their inner circles. I do not operate that way. [applause]
At this historical moment, we must bury the status quo, recognize rational threats to our security, but most importantly: Focus on becoming competitive in a globally expanded marketplace. [applause]
Terrorism is a human phenomenon. My predecessor defined optimistic leadership as the means to combat terrorism. I combat terrorism by removing the threat and my fellow citizens our behemoth government is the world's greatest threat. [applause]
I will make this federal government fiscally responsible by reducing expenses 72 percent and require no more than 35 percent of the current manpower to achieve this goal before the end of my second term. The federal government operates at a cost to you, the taxpayer. Unlike corporations of today transforming to please Wall Street, my measure of success is a transitional plan to reduce the tax burden, but also ensure soon to be laid off federal employees have many career options available in the private sector.
To boost our employment opportunities, the federal government will hold all companies responsible for their workforce. Over-zealous capitalism does not benefit the average worker in this country. [applause] Corporations will become true patriots of this nation, my White House will regulate their practices primarily through incentives, but also through financial penalty.
Companies will earn tax credit for retraining and for hiring workers in this country. Any organization replacing a job, whether it is part-time or full-time will pay a full-year’s salary from the termination date or until that employee finds a new job. [applause]
If you offshore work, you will owe the difference in salary plus four-times the headcount tax in penalties. [applause]
Additional credits apply to funding community mentor programs, educational vouchers to workers, and for retraining.
As part of my plan to save both state and federal dollars, the government will no longer need its unemployment agencies. The Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Census Bureau will be replaced by a university-cooperative program.
I will be regulating the entire medical industry. Corporations meanwhile, will fund medical insurance for both part-time and full-time employees, and after regulations are in place this nation will have affordable healthcare without federal investment. [applause]
[The subheading "Education Reform:" is projected on the wall behind Miller.]
We will not change student behavior overnight, but we will change the environment for which current and future students learn. Within my first year of office, school funding transitions into a federal only program; still using property tax, but the model will be equal nationwide.
Schools will never use money collected from a game of chance. The IRS will manage school funding and cost-per student will be equal. Local school boards will regulate text books; not the state of Texas. [applause]
Teachers will be paid well above the cost of living for your location with raises based upon advanced training in a federal sponsorship with your trade unions. [applause]
[The subheading "Homeland:" is projected on the wall behind Miller.]
The United Nations exists for a purpose. It is their responsibility to maintain peace where needed. The United States has no right to meddle in a nation’s affairs, and we never will again. [raucous applause]
We will withdraw all personnel from outside our borders within six months, but join the UN when we are called to duty. [applause]
The Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, CIA, FEMA, federal prisons, and the FAA will be consolidated under military intelligence. Management will be reduced 96 percent. Our service men and women will now run our prisons, airports, harbors, secure our borders, and respond to national emergencies. [raucous applause]
Our new national motto is: Brain power -- not body bags. [raucous applause]
Along our borders the military will treat trespassers as invaders. If you immigrate illegally, you get a one-way ticket home, case closed. [applause]
All foreign aid will cease immediately. I will not honor my predecessors' promises. I must invest at home. [applause]
To all nations of the world; it is your responsibility to you're your people, nurture and protect them, and define what governing means for you. [raucous applause]
[The subheading, "Federal Prisons:" is projected on the wall behind Miller.]
The overwhelming majority of us do not commit crimes, nor should we be burdened with criminal housing costs. We will have only one federal prison. Our military will patrol the perimeter. Life inside this unmonitored compound should be enough deterrent to prevent future federal offenses.
From profits on sold federal penitentiaries, and by giving management to the military our federal prison system will no longer cost this nation. [applause]
[The subheading, "Social Welfare:" is projected on the wall behind Miller.]
Every society must care for a few in need. It is not the government's responsibility to support an able body and mind. It is your responsibility to educate yourself and find a career. I will end welfare programs for all except those in dire medical need as defined by my Surgeon General, which is estimated at less than 1 in 10 of welfare recipients.
Medicare and Medicaid will be phased out by year number three, at which time massive regulations will rule medical and pharmaceutical industries to a lowest denominator. [applause]
[The subheading "Social Security:" is projected on the wall behind Miller.]
The program does not require reform, it requires that the White House pay back 25-years worth of loans. By the end of my first term, this will be accomplished. [applause]
[The subheading "Tax Reform:" is projected on the wall behind Miller.]
Ladies and gentlemen my predecessor used executive orders to invade two nations. I will use my powers to benefit you. Retroactive for 2008, singles making less than $58,000, and families earning less than $84,000 will be refunded 'in full' your federal taxes paid in 2008. [applause] You no longer pay federal income taxes – ever. [raucous applause and jubilant ovation]
For those making more, your federal tax rate is on a progressive scale for two years, at which time federal income taxes end for all citizens of the United States. [raucous applause]
Corporate taxation will be based upon the lack of expansion plans and new hires, community partnerships, and partnerships with academia. If you do not reinvest in this nation you are not welcomed to do business in the United States of America. Do you hear me IBM? [raucous applause]
Minus those credits, revenue will be taxed a flat rate, but profits will take the brunt. Capitalism is not defined by returns to stock holders while costing jobs, research, and innovation. You benefit from consumer spending, which I have now guaranteed.
[The subheading "Federal Regulations:" is projected on the wall behind Miller.]
The federal government will limit costs on medical procedures and pharmaceuticals, based upon my cabinet's global assessment for standards. Everyone will afford their own health care and medications without public assistance. Drug makers can reduce costs by ending their relationship with Madison Avenue. [applause]
The federal government will enforce the highest standards of environmental care and the penalties for violating these standards are simple: You pollute only once, we close you down. [applause]
My White House fosters a level of achievement unknown to mankind. I back the government out of your personal lives, but empower you achieve your dreams, and ensure no one falls victim to capitalistic games. [applause]
It will be my privilege to lead this nation in reinvention to heights this world has never seen." [raucous applause and jubilant ovation]
