This is what Glenn suggests we require any one running for Congress to pledge support if we are to vote for them.
Insanity? No this is one of the sanest things Ive ever read;
To Congress, The 5 Pledges
1. I believe in a balanced budget and therefore will vote for a freeze in government spending until that goal is realized.
2. I believe government should not increase the financial burden on its citizenry during a difficult economic times, therefore I will oppose all tax increases until our economy has rebounded.
3. I believe more than four decades of US dependence on foreign oil is a travesty, therefore I will support an energy plan that calls for immediately increasing usage of all domestic resources including nuclear energy, natural gas and coal as necessary.
4. I believe in the sovereignty and security of our country and therefore will support measures to close our borders except for designated immigration points so we will know who is entering and why. I will vehemently oppose any measure giving another country, the United Nations, or any other entity power over US citizens.
5. I believe the United States of America is the greatest country on earth and therefore will no apologize for policies or actions which have served to free more and feed more people around the world than any other nation on the planet.
I forgot to add that if your looking for an honest politician try looking at R-Congressman Ron Paul.
Until i started following him I actually thought our Executive branch was in control and that world bank conspiracists were crazy. Turns out I just wasn't paying attention and truth really is stranger than fiction :cantlook:
