As a candidate for the United States Senate Florida 2016, Dr. Tolbert would like electors to ask all candidates, State or Federal, the following questions:
Please evaluate the candidates response to those presented by Charles Frederick Tolbert EdD.
1. How did you become interested in politics and then what led you to actually step out and become involved in the process by running this campaign?
The question is misleading. I did not become interested in being a politician, I elected to became a government official (according to the US constitution) and chose to run for the office of US Senator Florida 2016, because I believe in God, Honor and Country. We as citizens must defend the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights, most importantly the First Amendment…http://www.cfabamerica.com/what-does-the-u-s-constitution-actually-say-about-religion
2. What experiences do you have that will be valuable in the Senate (political or just life experiences)?
Political experience is only as good as an individual’s ability to lead. Currently the 2 party system is a violation of the US Constitution, however, life experience is more valuable in order to continue to have prosperity in America.
My life experiences are:
I am a retired MSGT and served our country for 22 years, I have degrees in theology DivM, and Education EdM and EdD.
My resume can be found on:
Currently Florida is in violation of the US Constitution:
3. Why did you decide to run as an independent/3rd party?
I decided to run as a Citizen for a Better America.
The constitution does not have political parties.
Oath of Office – Article VI, clause 3:
“The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”
4. Do you support moving to a Top 2 primary format?
No! Primaries are to be open and currently this is a violation of the Untied States Constitution, Amendment XXIV Section I, (The website FairVote.org reports that, as of 2010, 19 states and the District of Columbia hold closed primaries,).
Currently Florida violates three major United States constitutional issues:
1 -United States Constitution says open primary. Amendment XXIV Section 1.
The right of citizens of the United States to vote in any primary or other election for President or Vice President, for electors for President or Vice President, or for Senator or Representative in Congress, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state by reason of failure to pay any poll tax or other tax.
5. What do you think are 3 biggest issues facing US/FL and how do you propose that we address them?
1. Voting fraud
2. Two party system
3. Congress not following the US Constitution.
We must elect a public servant who believes in the constitution.
I have written several articles which can be found on my web site
6. Do you think the government has a role to play in controlling income inequality?
By eliminating the IRS: http://www.cfabamerica.com/h-r-25-fair-tax-act-of-2011)
We can bring jobs back to America-
7. What do you think the US role should be in international affairs?
The US international responsibility is written in the constitution.
United Nations (UN)
I agree with the conservative view point that the USA has overstepped its responsibility to World peace because the UN has not fulfilled its role of intervention to insure international peace. The cost to the USA for being a member of the UN exceeds six billion dollars and even that money has not gained the US a voice at the table with Russia and China vetoing action which the majority of UN members agree with. It is soon expected that the world legal and financial decisions will no longer be a choice of the American people and we will be subject to international laws. The loss of our freedom goes against our constitutional rights, and if we do not take action at the voting booth we will lose or freedom of speech, religion and right to bear arms. The reasoning behind politicians supporting the UN is to move us more to a socialist country.
War on Terror/Terrorism
It appears with recent events that the liberals/Democrats have shifted their position to internal spying on all Americans and our allies. A strong armed force, increase in man power and the return of the draft is the only way to return America to a force that other countries and our enemies would not want to see happen. The current political system has weakened the US and has created an atmosphere of terrorism. By having a ready armed force and the understanding that troops on the ground win wars and hold the enemy at bay. Since the reduction of our military and the enrichment of manufacture of weapons we have lost the respect of all nations to include our allies. As a retired Master Sergeant a Viet Nam veteran and a plans officer in the Army, I understand that a well trained Army backed by Generals who understand troops on the ground is the only way to fight Terrorism. Our borders will only be secured when our enemies understand we will not only hunt them down, but that we will go to the cause to treat the problem.
8. Do you support NSA data collection of phone calls and other personal info? Why or why not?
Simple answer. No! Violation of first amendment.
9. Do you think we should audit the FED as Ron Paul and Rand Paul have been proposing?
Let’s first clarify FED
Department of Economic Development
Federal government has no authority over economic development. I believe this is a violation of amendment 10 and also the commerce clause.
The federal government is leading us into a one World power while using United Nations.
Instead of auditing FED it needs to be closed.
10. What is your opinion on current tax policy? What, if anything, would you propose to change?
Read my article on HR 25 fair tax law.
11. Do you feel there should be more or less environmental regulation, or is it pretty balanced right now? What would you change if anything environmentally?
Environmental regulations are being governed by the United Nations and the issues belong to the state.
According to amendment 10 of United States Constitution, whatever is not in the constitution belongs to the states and not the federal government.
Recently the United Nations, the Pope and the President have tried to pass legislation through Congress controlling all water ways in America. In fact they have divided the United States into 12 environmental districts to be controlled by the United Nations. Congress has not lived up to their responsibilities and they need to be impeached.
12. What do you feel about the war on drugs?
The war on drugs is being miss directed, many states wish to pass laws changing and allowing legalization of marijuana which will cause further destruction of our homes and families.
13. What should be done to address healthcare?
This issue belongs to the State, and in articles I wrote concerning the VA:
The governors have allowed the federal government’s intervention into each state and these governors and the state congresses have all violated the US Constitution.
14. Do any changes need to be made to Social Security/Medicare?
Once we implement HR 25, close down the IRS, the states can collect Medicaid through time of purchase. Every American can be protected and receive reasonable medical care.
Social Security is illegal and has to be revamped, restructured and re-presented. It has to be presented as a constitutional amendment
15. What do you feel should be done about oil subsidies and renewable energy options?
Oil Companies are all tied to big business, to one world power and the destruction of America. Many of these companies are tied to the federal reserve, the Jesuits, the illuminati and the Mason’s .
America was found by small business and hard work, not by the manipulation of capital and ships sitting at sea waiting for prices to increase.
16. What are some things that voters would not know about you (hobbies, family, talents, etc)?
First and foremost… my responsibility is to bring God back to America.
Secondly…in the last 12 years I have been a caregiver for Senior Citizens, I have helped the poor to be employed and I have received two masters degrees and a Doctor degree.
I have my master degree in education-from AIU EdM
Masters in Theology from logos DivM
Doctor degree from Nova EdD
I am also a retired MSGT
Charles Frederick Tolbert EdD
17. What would you say to people that are frustrated with the current political process and partisanship?
Over 60% of Americans are independent voters, no party affiliated. The Democrat and Republican parties have violated the antitrust laws and also the US Constitution. According to the constitution there should be open primaries where everyone can vote for every candidate. The caucuses are in violation. In addition, states such as Florida are in violation of the US Constitution in that they have a closed primary. This is not a matter of a constitutional amendment of the state of Florida, this is to present to the US Supreme Court ruling over all states and all primaries be open to all electors.
18. How can people make a difference to change the current political climate?
1. Currently the voting machines are owned by the Romney family. We need to get back to the paper trail Ballots.
2. We need to have open primaries.
3. Close down the Department of Education.
4. Toll roads today are owned by foreign businesses.
5. We need to close down the tollroads and use strictly gasoline taxes to maintain our inner structure and highways.
6. All non-party and independent electors should find one non-Democrat/non-Republican and vote for that non-party affiliated individual.
19. What else would you like to address that was not mentioned above?
The Department of Elections and the Florida Election Commission are in violation of the United States Constitution. They are in fact supporting the Democrat and Republican political parties. The state of Florida does not ensure that these candidates are US citizens.
Immigration belongs to the state, not the federal government
20. Where is the best place for people to find out more about you and your campaign?

Amendment to the United States Constitution
These are the constitutional violations committed by the division of elections and the Florida election commission Charles Frederick Tolbert for candidate running for office in Florida
The Fifth Amendment (Amendment V) to the United States Constitution is part of the Bill of Rights and protects a person against being compelled to be a witness against himself or herself in a criminal case. “Pleading the Fifth” is a colloquial term for invoking the privilegethat allows a witness to decline to answer questions where the answers might incriminate him or her, and generally without having to suffer a penalty for asserting the privilege. A defendant cannot be compelled to become a witness at his or her own trial. If, however, he or she should choose to testify, he or she is not entitled to the privilege, and inferences can be drawn from a refusal to answer a question during cross-examination. The Amendment requires that felonies be tried only upon indictment by a grand jury. Federal grand juries can force people to take the witness stand, but defendants in those proceedings have Fifth Amendment privilege until they choose to answer any question. To claim the privilege for failure to answer when being interviewed by police, the interviewee must have explicitly invoked their constitutional right when declining to answer questions.
The Amendment’s Double Jeopardy Clauseprovides the right to be tried only once in federal court for the same offense. The Amendment also has a Due Process Clause(similar to the one in the 14th Amendment) as well as an implied equal protection requirement(Bolling v. Sharpe). Finally, the Amendment requires that the power of eminent domain be coupled with “just compensation” for those whose property is taken.
Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution
Changes must be reviewed before being displayed on this page.
The Sixth Amendment (Amendment VI) to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights that sets forth rights related to criminal prosecutions. The Supreme Court has applied the protections of this amendment to the states through the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
Seventh Amendment to the United States Constitution
The Seventh Amendment (Amendment VII) to the United States Constitution is part of the Bill of Rights. This amendment codifies the right to a jury trial in certain civil cases, and inhibits courts from overturning a jury’s findings of fact.
An early version of the Seventh Amendment was introduced in Congress in 1789 by James Madison, along with the other amendments, in response to Anti-Federalist objections to the new Constitution. Congress proposed a revised version of the Seventh Amendment to the states on September 28, 1789, and by December 15, 1791, the necessary three-quarters of the states had ratified it. Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson announced the adoption of the amendment on March 1, 1792.
The Seventh Amendment is generally considered one of the more straightforward amendments of the Bill of Rights. While the Seventh Amendment’s provision for jury trials in civil cases has never been incorporated (i.e., applied to the states) almost every state voluntarily complies with this requirement. The prohibition of overturning a jury’s findings of fact applies to federal cases, state cases involving federal law, and to review of state cases by federal courts. United States v. Wonson (1812) established the “historical test”, which interpreted the amendment as relying on English common law to determine whether a jury trial was necessary in a civil suit. The amendment thus does not guarantee trial by jury in cases under maritime law, in lawsuits against the government itself, and for many parts of patent claims. In all other cases, the jury can be waived by consent of the parties.
The amendment additionally guarantees a minimum of six members for a jury in a civil trial. The amendment’s twenty dollar threshold has not been the subject of much scholarly or judicial writing; that threshold remains applicable despite the inflation that has occurred since the 18th century.
The Eighth Amendment (Amendment VIII) to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights (ratified December 15, 1791) prohibiting the federal governmentfrom imposing excessive bail, excessive fines, or cruel and unusual punishment. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that this amendment’s Cruel and Unusual Punishment Clause also applies to the states. The phrases in this amendment originated in the English Bill of Rights of 1689.
The Ninth Amendment (Amendment IX) to the United States Constitution addresses rights, retained by the people, that are not specifically enumerated in the Constitution. It is part of the Bill of Rights.
The Tenth Amendment (Amendment X) to the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights, was ratified on December 15, 1791. It expresses the principle of federalism, which strictly supports the entire plan of the original Constitution for the United States of America, by stating that the federal governmentpossesses only those powers delegated to it by the United States Constitution. All remaining powers are reserved for the states or the people.
The Fourteenth Amendment (Amendment XIV) to the United States Constitution was adopted on July 9, 1868, as one of the Reconstruction Amendments. The amendment addresses citizenship rights and equal protection of the laws, and was proposed in response to issues related to former slaves following the American Civil War. The amendment was bitterly contested, particularly by Southern states, which were forced to ratify it in order for them to regain representation in Congress. The Fourteenth Amendment, particularly its first section, is one of the most litigated parts of the Constitution, forming the basis for landmark decisions such as Roe v. Wade (1973) regarding abortion, Bush v. Gore(2000) regarding the 2000 presidential election, and Obergefell v. Hodges (2015) regarding same-sex marriage. The amendment limits the actions of all state and local officials, including those acting on behalf of such an official.
The amendment’s first section includes several clauses: the Citizenship Clause, Privileges or Immunities Clause, Due Process Clause, and Equal Protection Clause. The Citizenship Clause provides a broad definition of citizenship, overruling the Supreme Court’sdecision in Dred Scott v. Sandford (1857), which had held that Americans descended from African slaves could not be citizens of the United States. The Privileges or Immunities Clause has been interpreted in such a way that it does very little.
The Due Process Clause prohibits state and local government officials from depriving persons of life, liberty, or property without legislative authorization. This clause has also been used by the federal judiciary to make most of the Bill of Rights applicable to the states, as well as to recognize substantive and procedural requirements that state laws must satisfy.
The Equal Protection Clause requires each state to provide equal protection under the law to all people within its jurisdiction. This clause was the basis for Brown v. Board of Education(1954), the Supreme Court decision that precipitated the dismantling of racial segregation, and for many other decisions rejecting irrational or unnecessary discrimination against people belonging to various groups.
The second, third, and fourth sections of the amendment are seldom litigated. However, the second section’s reference to “rebellion and other crime” has been invoked as a constitutional ground for felony disenfranchisement. The fifth section gives Congress the power to enforce the amendment’s provisions by “appropriate legislation”. However, under City of Boerne v. Flores (1997), Congress’s enforcement power may not be used to contradict a Supreme Court interpretation of the amendment.
