Pledge To America

by Chris | September 23rd, 2010

The Republicans have come out with their “Pledge to America.”  I will take my time and go through this document providing my thoughts to you as I go.

This is important because most conservatives agree that in order to preserve our Republic and the Liberties it ensures, the most efficient option is to take control of the heart of the Republican party … not for the sake of bolstering that political party, but rather to use it as an essential tool to protect and defend our Constitution from all enemies both foreign and domestic.

The introduction to the GOP “Pledge to America” is both insightful and illustrative of the problem in American politics today.

Less than one week after a speech by President Obama in which he quoted The Declaration of Independence but censored it leaving out the reference to our “Creator” the Republicans engage in their own censorship of that founding document.

The Pledge to America interestingly leaves out the fact that we are endowed by our Creator with “certain” unalienable rights; “that among these are …”  Our Founders included Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness as three examples of the self-evident rights granted to us by God, not as an exhaustive list.

More telling of our times though is what comes next … “Whenever the agenda of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to institute a new governing agenda and set a different course.” (GOP Pledge to America)

Apparently the Republican Party needs a little history lesson.  The Declaration of Independence was not a document suggesting a tweaking of the current political agenda.  The document states; “whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government”

What the Republican Party and the Democratic Party are refusing to acknowledge is that We The People, the citizens of this great nation are fed up with the politics from both sides of the isle!

They have developed what is in essence a two party ruling class, unaccountable and arrogant … IF they continue to "rule" in a manner destructive to our liberties we will "alter or abolish" them and "institute a new government"!

Now, having been admittedly a little nit-picky, for the most part the tone and statements in the introduction are refreshing, and yes, even a bit inspiring.  I am encouraged that the Tenth Amendment is highlighted and even by some of the iconic sound-bite statements regarding our founding and core American values.

However, the introduction ends with their call to “invite fellow citizens and patriots to join us in forming a new governing agenda for America.”  My warning to the GOP is that as a political party they must be aware of the fact that the Republican party is not America’s saving grace … The Republican party at this point is simply a useful idiot that will either help facilitate liberty for all American citizens or will be swept under the bridge of history as another party that failed to live up to its rhetoric.

  1. Thanks for sharing this helpful info!

  2. Following reading this posting, I pondered the same point that I invariably wonder about when scanning new blogs and forums. Just what do I think about this? Precisely how need to it impact me? This and extra posts in your weblog here definitely give some stuff to consider. I essentially ended up here by way of Yahoo when I was first performing some web study for some course perform that I have. Usually very good times browsing via and I’m hopeful that you’ll maintain on writing new posts. Cheers!

  3. Hey I like your blog !

  4. Thanks for sharing the link, but unfortunately it seems to be down… Does anybody have a mirror or another source? Please answer to my post if you do!

    Good god these are moderated, lol, bless. So app ads are ok?

  10. Violet vehemoth says:

    You’re a bunch of cranks. The articles are opinionated claptrap and most comments seem as if they’re written by machine. No questioning, debate or agreement by points. The articles are rubbish

  11. I really love your website design, did you create this all by yourself or get someone to do it?

  12. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  13. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  14. wow great! thanks

  18. I’m wondering now if we can talk about your sites statistics – search volume, etc, I’m trying to build a site having to do with this topic, and after coming across this I definitely need a hand.

  19. I enjoy your site – I would like to talk with you about buying ad space here granted you do that. Hit me up at the email I provided and we can talk pricing, thanks mate.

  20. Hi! I really enjoy read your articles. I am visiting your articles whenever I have some time left

  21. Considering what you said – I definitely think there should be a change in our current mentality over the subject matter. Keep up the great work – i’ll be back in a few days to check on the updates you’ve made.

  22. Hey, I’d like to buy advertising space on your site. If you contact me, we’ll work something out… You can email me or contact me through my site (I left it as my name). Let me know as soon as possible please.

  23. Well written and interesting. Congrats!

  24. Hey I think eduaction is a rather long learning proccess and we thank you for being our inspiration.

  25. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  26. Hello, this is my first time i visit here. I found so many interesting in your blog especially on how to determine the topic. keep up the good work.

  27. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
