A Politician’s Pledge

Posted By on February 25, 2010

I am tired of hearing politicians spouting over and over again how Washington is broke, “and if elected I’ll go up there to fix it.” It hasn’t happened, yet, and I doubt any statement said today.

Washington is broke simply because they have violated the Constitution, and expanded government beyond its Constitutional mandates and restrictions. It’s broke because the foundation, i.e. the Constitution, cannot support the bloated system supposedly built on it.

How about this, plain, clear and simple? Will any politician make the pledge that all of their votes cast in Washington will be decided upon based on the Constitution? If the new legislation, expenditure, law or whatever has no basis within the Constitution, I will vote “NO”! If the legislation, expenditure, law or whatever brings us towards a return to Constitutional LIMITED government, I will vote “YES”!

Will you join me in this?

    I’d like to see them start the process of getting rid of the unconstitutional depts/bureaus… like the Dept of Education… maybe cut their budgets in half, then in half again, and again… until nobody is left…Schools should be administered locally not FEDERAL… the Dept of Energy, for ineptly FAILING in their charter to reduce our dependence on foreigh oil… should be disbanded. Let’s see… what else are they meddling in that they shouldn’t, EPA, National Parks (give the land BACK to the states)… If I where dictator for a day… I could cut the Government down to size… if only politicians would do it.

    As far as healthcare is concerned…look at what Seacoast Church has done! (Leave healthcare up to churches, doctors, and hospitals. I believe changing everything a few years ago by forcing doctors to work with HMO’s and the like, started us down the path we are now on.)

    Seacoast Church has saved the public over $2,000,000 last year in medical expenses by seeing those who could not afford to go to a doctor, chiropractor, dentist, massage therapist, physical therapist and more. Only problem is..you have to live in Hanahan or North Charleston to receive this care and be considered poor.

    There are those of us who do not live in those areas, who receive enough money to not be qualified, who have pre-existing conditions….and cannot get health insurance. We did not ask to be born with these conditions…and should not be left behind. Many of us are still contributing to society. Yet, we are ill more often, because we cannot see a doctor. Or if we see a doctor, we must give up food or something else to afford the visit. I would rather see a Naturopath but I understand the profession is not valid in SC. Such a backward state in so many ways!

    I would take this pledge if I were a politician. And I will ask those running if they will take this pledge, in the future.

    Thank you David. If I were a politician, I would hire you to be by my side constantly to keep me in line, and to administer proper legislation!
