Canyon County Sheriff
Independent Conservative Constitutional Candidate for Canyon County this November 6, 2012

 

A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means.

 Why run as an Independent Candidate?

To reform the following Political machine

Historically, an informal organization that controlled the formal processes of a government through corruption, patronage, intimidation, and service to its preselected supporting constituents. 

“Is it constitutional?” Only afterward is the desirability of specific policies and government arrangements considered on their own merits. In the 1819 case of McCulloch v. Maryland, the Supreme Court explained how to tell if something is constitutional: “Let the end be legitimate, let it be within the scope of the Constitution, and all means which are appropriate, which are plainly adapted to that end, which are not prohibited, but consist with the letter and spirit of the Constitution, are constitutional.” (Shafritz 80)
Shafritz, Jay M.,  E. W. Russell,  Christopher P. Borick. Introducing Public Administration, 8/e  for Capella University. Pearson Learning Solutions, 05/2012. <vbk:9781256752899#outline(7.4)>.

 

STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT MACHINERY

TABLE 3.1     Governments in the United States total 89,527.

National  1, State 50, County 3,033, Municipal 19,492, Townships/Towns 16,519, School Districts 13,051, Special Districts 37,381.

The number of public employees is a good indicator of this disparity. The federal government, excluding the armed forces, has just about 2.7 million civilian employees. But state and local employment exceeds 17 million. The machinery of government at the state and local levels parallels the national model with legislative, executive, and judicial branches. The Tenth Amendment, the last part of the Bill of Rights, holds that the “powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.” This means that whatever the federal government cannot constitutionally do for the people, the states and their subunits must or may do. Significantly, the national Constitution does not mention cities, counties, or any other type of local government. They are all creatures of their states; their powers are derived from state law; and what a state gives a state may later take away. (Shafritz 86-87)

“If you going to sin, sin against God, not the bureaucracy, God will forgive you but the bureaucracy will not.”

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Robert D. Muse.  I am the independent conservative CONSTITUTIONAL sheriff candidate. I would like to thank our citizens, veterans, public safety, and senior citizens for being our strength to fight and preserve this constitutional inheritance.

The Highest Duty of the Office of the Sheriff is the constitutional oath of office to serve you, All Citizens, rich or poor, Democrat, Republican or Independent, white, black, brown or otherwise, will be treated equally under the Law, with respect, dignity and fairness. This is my duty and honor for being a veteran and peace officer from the oath taken and given.

Why do I want to be sheriff? Answer is simple. It is the greatest Patriotic duty of every citizen to serve and protect the rights citizens that support the constitution, reduce the growth of government, reduce real expenses, streamline services through the privation for  returning and creating wealth for the private sector. Simply just get any government actions out of the way that consume wealth through excessive taxes, fees, and other funding deceptions that burden all of us especially for retaining the savings our seniors have worked so hard for in their lifetime.

Trust your instincts; it conveys the gifts of our constitution’s principles with American exceptionalism. "Trust is engendered through openness, a constitutional oath of office, clarity of expression – it is the accumulated product of saying what you’re going to do, and doing it, and getting results.” The Sheriff is the supreme law of the land in this county. I will protect and  defend your civil liberties, private property rights and freedom from all oppressive forms of federal, state, county, and city governments when authority has been abused and misused by bureaucrats.

I believe that the Office of Sheriff is in need of new Independent leadership vision and a master strategic plan for the future that will not include a new jail bond or new taxes. There is a need to reduce expenses - share new ideas – that must include constitutional concepts which are required to preserve this republic governed by the election process of a democracy through the action of voting. There is a need for the Constitutional Restoration of the current criminal justice system that will balance and build for the future. Pretrial and Alternative sentencing do not represent these constitutional values in there current social justice form. The spending has got to stop.

The social policy has become a collection of unions and bureaucratic officials receiving a comfortable income so long as the status quo is preserved. If the administrators were judged by results as a statesman were they would be unemployed. The government is all about paper and forms and the entire civil service is like fortress made of papers, forms, and red tape. The changing of government and social policy at each election comes and goes but the establishment of good old boys and girls goes on forever, it is a classic example of power without responsibility.

The social bureaucracies are first designed to perform public business until it is established, than it develops an autonomous spiritual life and comes to regard the public as its enemy and the agency a victim of circumstances. So basically the perfect bureaucrat everywhere is the person who manages to make no decisions and escape all responsibility. This has become the rule of no one and has become the modern form of despotism.

The social policy needs to start with this very simple statement “citizens are not born, but are made.” Everyone who receives the protection of society owes a return for the benefit. Without a domicile there can be no good citizen, with a home there can be no bad one.

We should try to remember there are no first or second class citizens, and it is the duty of every citizen according to the best of their capacities to give validity to their convictions in social policy and political affairs. It is not the function of government to keep the citizen from falling into error and it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error.

Our social policy cannot afford to borrow billions for war. And no nation has ever borrowed largely for education. We are not rich enough to pay for both war and the education of a civilization (3 trillion in debt), but will have to make a choice, we cannot afford both.

Our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate; our greatest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that frightens us. In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

I have never violated my Oath as a defender of the constitution. Restore Integrity first, Service before self, and protect our citizens’ civil liberty, private property rights and freedom. United, we can save our county and country.

The only Candidate with Detention Academy Certificate and Jail Experience.

 

 

To the Patriot Citizens of Canyon County,

       I have a plan to reduce jail population that combines the Bail Agencies with pretrial that returns this original process back to the 8th amendment of the constitution. It is funded by the Bail Agencies through their paid forfeitures to the court. No new taxes or fees involved. In addition, I will establish a “Volunteer Citizens Review Panel” that includes purchasing contracts, a revised Reserve and POSSE service with no new increases in the budget.

The Constitution of the United States of America is the Supreme Law of the Land.  The 4,5,6,7 and 8th Amendments guarantee that all matters dealing with Life, Liberty and Property must be tried by a trial by jury. The Sheriff must protect the process to both sides of jail door. No citizen or government agency will be receiving special privilege above the equal justice of the law!

The buck stops here - period. 

It is my highest honor to support and defend the most inspirational constitutional document ever written by the hand of man with god’s ink.  

My promise to the citizens of Canyon County and this country.

Through toil and strife I have given it all, my heart, my life.

A page in our Republic's history a chapter in time;

I have fought for freedom, yours and mine.

I continue to stay vigilant through cold and rain, and bear the fatigue, hardship, and pain.

This piece of paper we call a constitution, I will defend, side by side 'till the bitter end.

 

Citizen Robert D. Muse

 

VISION

A safe,  secure, and resilient Canyon County infrastructure through a constitutional process jointly with the public sector, private industry, and citizen partnerships.

 

 

"Trust your instincts; it conveys the gifts of our constitution’s principles with American exceptionalism."

 

"Trust is engendered through openness, an oath of office, clarity of expression – it’s the accumulated product of saying what you’re going to do, and doing it, and getting results.”

 

"This independent candidate is neither a disaffected member of an existing party nor seeking to form a new party, but simply somebody running as an independent candidate."

 

 

I ask for your support, your vote, your volunteered time, your donation

What Makes This Country Great?

Control v.s. Rights

  I wonder why people risk coming to the U.S. illegally and what their lives are like?

  I also wonder how other countries deal with their own immigration issues?

Possible research questions about this topic...

  • How should the U.S. control its borders?  Which strategy is most effective?

  • Should undocumented workers be given access to health care?

  • What has been the experience of Asian immigrants in U.S. history?

  • How has immigration to the U.S. changed as a result of the attacks on September 11, 2001?

  • Should illegal immigrants who serve in the military be granted citizenship?

  • What are the pros and cons to providing bilingual education for immigrant children?

  • What types of exploitation do immigrants suffer?  What are solutions to this problem?

  • Do migrants help or hurt the U.S. economy? How?

  • When people say "immigration reform," what changes are they proposing?  Will they be effective?

  • What are the difficulties for immigrants adjusting to life in the U.S. and what is the best way to maintain their cultural identity?

  • How are other countries' immigration issues similar to or different from those of the U.S?

What can be done

      I will reestablish a new application of basic organizational principles, such as organizing by function, ensuring unity of command, delineating responsibility and delegating authority. I will not attempt make specific organizational structures or specific titles or designations for various organizational components. To do so would limit flexibility and would make it difficult to accommodate the resources and capabilities of our individual agency.

 

      Planning for a law enforcement agency involves the development and utilization of limited personnel, equipment, and resources in ways that will favorably affect future public welfare. Depending on their size and mandate, our law enforcement agency should perform certain planning functions.  A new written directive would describe organizational  structure and functions and define responsibility for several activities that could be assigned to a single position or component, as availability is needed to all personnel. This could be depicted geographically on an organizational chart that is reviewed and updated as needed. This chart should be accessible to all personnel.

 

     Unity of command would deploy supervisors geographically rather than temporally. A new written directive will include long term goals and operational objectives. These include anticipated work load and population trends, personnel levels, capital improvements, equipment needs, and provisions for review and revision when needed.

 

     The planning process and its end product are essential to our effective agency management . Our agency should have a clear written articulation of goals and objectives and a plan for achieving them. Our plan should cover successive years beyond the current budget year and should contain provisions for frequent updating.

 

     We will establish a direction for our chain of command, crime analysis, allocation, distribution, and alternatives of enabling personnel to be part of planning process. There will be the classification , delineation of duties and responsibilities that will be used to describe the nature of work performed by agency employees. Our task analysis will be used to describe a systemic, structured process for dissecting a job into its basic parts.  

 

     These functions include developing job descriptions, establishing a job classification, and compensation plan, providing a job-related focus for developing and implementing recruitment strategies, developing and validating hiring and promotion procedures, establishing spans of control, determining training requirements, and evaluating employee performance.

 

      The question our County Commissioners must ask their citizens if they want or can afford an accredited  law enforcement agency that exceeds county, state and federal standards and laws? “ There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.”

 

Making a difference, Where to begin?
 

Nothing I may say or does escape the scrutiny and examination of our community.

If you thought you could make a difference, would you be willing to try?
If you discovered that you possessed leadership qualities and skills, would you use them?
If you knew that you could motivate others to make a difference, would you be inspired to do so?


      These are the questions that a candidate needs to address as a leader of Canyon County and our communities concern about the recent activities at the Jail. Right now their are men and women just like you, from every walk of life and social and economic level, making difference because they, like you, care deeply about our community. Let us enable our people to use their leadership skills to improve the situation at the Jail with the with a new Sheriff.

      What sets our community apart from others? It is not how much education we have, how much money we make, where we come from, or who we know. It is not about age, sex, or occupation. It is my awareness of the needs for others, my awareness of these challenges the Jail faces. It is my enthusiasm for improving the Jail with the community involved for creating new opportunities. We as a community need to have a passion for a just cause, or we may just want to give something back to our community and society. In looking for ways to solve our problems and differences we must tap our personal power and leadership potential.


      There are twelve common denominators , or twelve qualities, that will effect our outcome in solving our cultural diversity problem at the Jail. A new Sheriff needs to focus on the following in order to bring a positive change and provide for a management role model with qualities of leadership in the Jail.


1. Develop a mission that matters.
2. See the larger picture.
3. Highly developed ethics
4. Change management direction.
5. Sensitivity to issues.
6. Risk reaching out to all parts of the community.
7. A decision making process using collaboration method..
8. Effective communication - media, published, radio, Television and guest speakers.
9. Use power wisely.
10. Build teams of with private business, government agencies and citizens.
11. A courageous Plan of action.
12. Committed to solving this problem.


       We must equip a new Sheriff with skills, tools, and techniques to maximize natural leadership talents. I need to expose our community to disciplines, concepts, and theories that will build the confidence we need to make leadership decisions. Sharpen our curiosity, fire up our idealism, and reinforce our commitment to making a difference. Challenge ourselves with questions about our community that will help us discover the best way we can make a difference. This is not something that we will learn. This is an ever - evolving pattern of skills, talents, and ideas that grow change each day.    
 

My previous positions of trust included service as an Idaho Certified Peace officer, Bail Agent, PSR social advocate, business to business retail sales and services. These are valuable experiences continue to provide a thoughtful insight for the delivery of resources for community socioeconomic services.

These personal skills continue to provide quality assessments, evaluations, and a positive “can do attitude.” This has included being an effective communicator to individuals and groups with specialized cooperative skills that are excellent for those teachable moments.

As a professional, I follow the ethical, moral, and legal guidelines of the National Association of Social Workers and Idaho Law Enforcement. I continue to research mental health and create social service methodologies to improve an agency’s client’s daily life.

 

 

Part & Full Time Employment History While Attending University

A. My current full time employment in the previous 24 months consisted of practicing as a licensed Idaho Bail Agent and Notary of a bail bond business for 7 years. This included approxiamately $ 3,000,000 million dollars in individual bail bond sales with the lowest paid forfeiture rate under $ 7000 within 22 months which considered to be excellent as a business model. This was an experimental self developed mental health business model for client referrals to PSR, case management, and payee services. When a defendant was in jail, I found resources for the family’s socioeconomic needs. Administrative and public relation functions included interaction with ADA County District Court, city, county, state, federal law enforcement agencies, probation, and mental health providers.

B. A previous position as a Psycho Social Rehabilitation Specialist and Notary in health care services. This included the creation of an internal client tracking system with improved services that completed the accreditation process required by Medicaid for a client approval of 100%. My PSR investigative strategies solved many diverse problems that lead to planned suggestions for achievable human social service corrective actions.

C. When employed as G4S Custom Protection Officer, I patrolled the Boise downtown garages and large public events either on a bicycle, vehicle, and foot. I created new crime statistical reporting systems and  forms that improved patrol methodologies to change public policy and security procedures to reduce violence and damage to private property. I saved lives, stopped armed robberies, drug crimes, sex crimes, and graffiti to buildings. This also included positive regard to the homeless and individuals suffering from behavioral mental health problems caused from alcohol and drugs.
