Dear Donald Trump: Here's My Audition for Apprentice Cyber Czar

Sadly, I missed out being on Celebrity Apprentice. Since my guerrilla warfare ads created several Silicon Valley billionaires, I figured I could get each one of them to pony up a cool $1 million for some Celebrity Apprentice fundraiser and win the competition. Alas, Donald trump is running for President of the United States. But rather than dash my hopes, several new possibilities open up. Here is the first of my President Trump Apprentice suggestions. Not only could this get great ratings, but in most cases it would be self-liquidating, in that the cost of the operation would be covered by advertisers and apprentice contacts and not by the U.S. Taxpayer.
 Dear Mr. Trump,

Did you realize you could end world-wide cybercrime with one pen stroke. It's in the U.S. Constitution (Article I § 8 of the U.S. Constitution gives Congress the “Power To . . . grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal”). Simply, by allowing licensed and bonded cyber privateers to attack and confiscate the assets of cyber thieves, not only could you end cybercrime practically over night, but you could start the biggest U.S. tech boom since the invention of the transistor.

Click on the link to the right for my complete legal justification. The Revolutionary War was virtually financed and won by sea-going privateers, who raided British shipping on the open seas, sold their booty, and then split the proceeds with the U.S. Treasury department. Here's the Cyber Privateer Code of Conduct:

As you can see from the 2011 copyright, I've been thinking about this for a good long time, just waiting for a POTUS willing to stick a thumb in the eye of U.S. defense contractors, the Beltway Bandits.

I'd be honored to discuss this with you, any time, any place.

Sincerely yours,

The Destroying Angel

Implementation suggestions for THE MORGAN DOCTRINE are most welcome. What are the "Got'chas!"? What questions would some future Cyber Privateering Czar have to answer about this in a Senate confirmation hearing?
