Many are weighing in on the "Pledge," which promises to honor the Constitution, particularly the Tenth Amendment; to advance liberty, opportunity, national defense, national prosperity---and to honor families, traditional marriage, life and the private and faith based organizations that form the core of our American values.
"We plan," they 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."
I'm asking you to evaluate their "Pledge" today by taking our readers poll. We will be passing this information to Republican candidates as soon as we receive your input. It's very important we hear from you as soon as possible.
Take a moment and read The Pledge. It's a short read, but very important. Then attach a grade to the Pledge by going to our reader's poll. You will grade it with "A" if you feel it is excellent, descending to an "F" if you feel it is not strong enough.
The results will be shared with all state Republican candidates in this election.
Planned Parenthood president, Cecile Richards, has responded forcefully, saying these Republicans will restrict abortions and manipulate the federal tax code. She says the Pledge, "is an extreme proposal that would ... end private health insurance coverage for abortion."
Ms. Richards says, "We urge Americans to reject extreme proposals," in the upcoming mid-term elections.
We would expect this response from the abortion industry leader.
However, there are those voices within the Republican Party urging candidates to set aside or remain silent on the so-called "controversial social issues." They say you can't get elected if you take a public position on these issues. There are those Republicans presently in elected office in Washington State who are advocating for this "moderate position".
The most important opinion, in the end, is that of the voters.
We value your feed back on this document. Thanks for taking a moment and letting your voice be heard.
Thank you for your support of our work.
Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Blessed.
