One Small Step for the GOP

I have a suggestion for the Republican Party. I am not sure if we can get the various big-government hypocrites, reach-accros-the-aisle centrists, and other wishy-washy RINOs to agree, but how about issuing a statement like this:

We, the elected representatives who call ourselves Republicans do hereby promise to tell the whole truth, the full truth, and nothing but the truth. We promise to stop claiming we are “cutting spending” when all we are doing is lowering, in rare instances, the rate of spending increases.

We promise to stop using the term “Social Security Trust Fund” because there is no such thing. Every penny ever collected for that program has been spent and we are dependent on current and future tax payers to fund the program. This is unsustainable.

We will request the same honesty from our Democratic counterparts but we will hold to this pledge with or without them. It is long past time that someone in this great nation did the right thing and we will proudly execute our sworn duties to uphold the Constitution.

We promise you, the American tax payers that balance their budgets at home, that we will do the same here in Washington.

We begin today. In November we will ask for your vote. With your help we can get America back on the road to fiscal responsibility. Join us on the only true path to prosperity before it is too late.

  1. indeed!

  2. Great ideals to put forward. Too bad opponents won’t honor this. Something to ponder…..why is it that the GOP has such a hard time capitalizing on their good character, while Dems win with lies, negativity and irresponsibility? Maddening.

    • I am not asking / expecting opponents to honor this — I am asking our team to move forward with this. This is the crux of the problem: the GOP has not drawn a line in the sand and said, “no further.”

  3. Great idea Patrick! Will the GOP be savvy enough to understand the power of this pledge? Or are they entrenched to such a degree that there only focus is toward gaining power to preserve Washington’s status quo.

    I’ve given this post exposure over on the member-side of Ricochet dot com. Hope it will drive some traffic to you and also boast the idea, so that it gets the attention of the GOP.
