GOP Pledge to America – Lets Hold Them To It

The GOP made a pledge to America back in 2010, which is really just a regurgitation of what they have been saying for 20 years. The difference is, they signed this document, to them it was probably a symbolic gesture, but to me it was more. Let me show you what the Pledge to America stated, in case you all forgot or wanted it wiped from your memory. I will just provide the link for those that want to read the whole thing, but I will print some words of importance.

“We pledge to honor the Constitution as constructed by its framers and honor the original intent of those precepts that have been consistently ignored – particularly the Tenth Amendment, which grants that all 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”

“We pledge to advance policies that promote greater liberty, wider opportunity, a robust defense, and national economic prosperity”

“We pledge to honor families, traditional marriage, life, and the private and faith-based organizations that form the core of our American values.”


“We pledge to uphold the purpose and promise of a better America, knowing that to whom much is given, much is expected and that the blessings of our liberty buoy the hopes of mankind”

“Our plan offers a clear and clearly different approach, one in which the people have the most say and the best ideas trump the most entrenched interests.”

“A plan to create jobs, end economic uncertainty, and make America more competitive must be the first and most urgent domestic priority of our government. So first, we offer a plan to get people working again. We will end the attack on free enterprise by repealing job killing policies and taking steps to assure current businesses and future entrepreneurs that the government will not stifle their ability to compete in the global marketplace.”

Now, while most of us mocked it, screamed about it, or laughed at it; the thing that most people never really thought about it is what a pledge really is, especially if it signed. A pledge is a legal and binding contract. When the GOP signed this pledge, I wonder if they gave full thought about that?

So what does that have to do with anything you ask? Well, I will tell you. They broke their contract. Now what happens when someone breaks a contract? That’s right my smart little reader, we sue. We sue the GOP in a court of law for breaking their written and signed contract to America. “Oh it can’t be done.”  Now, now, this is America and we can sue anyone for anything. “What do you want out of this?” I want to hold the GOP accountable for their failed policies and radical ideals. They promised us jobs, they promised us a more prosperous America. Well, where is it? I have yet to see anything improve by legislation the GOP have submitted. The only thing the GOP have done is cause a back log in Congress, which they promised in their contract they would NOT do.

In order for this to be effective, we need a gathering of people. Comment on this post if you would like to help me hold the GOP accountable for their actions. It is time they hear the American voice. It is time they see what they are doing to us. Join me and help me fight for America and what we REALLY want!
