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.
