I keep hearing from friends and co—workers that I HAVE to vote for Romney to stop Obama from getting elected again. They say I have to sacrifice my principles, be a realist, not an idealist, and vote for Romney to at least slow down the damage being done to this country by Obama.
Okay, here’s the deal. I will vote for Romney if two things occur. First, Romney reads, and swears to uphold a speech that I prepare for him, and secondly each and every Romney supporter who has nagged at me to vote for him signs a declaration, that I will also prepare for him or her.
Here is the speech that I would ask Mr. Romney to read, and agree to:
I, Willard, Mitt, Romney do solemnly swear to uphold and defend the Constitution, against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I will not sign into law any legislation which does not have as its foundation any of the specifically enumerated powers found in Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution. I will not abide a loose interpretation of the General Welfare, the Commerce, and the Necessary and Proper Clauses of the Constitution as a basis for enacting law.
As President I will reduce our national deficit and begin paying off the national debt by $1 trillion per year. If I fail to reduce our national debt by $4 trillion by the end of my first term I will not run for a second term. Along those lines I will work to get a flat tax, or a federal sales tax implemented, doing away with the graduated income tax, until the national debt is brought under control. Once that occurs I will no longer allow government to tax the earnings of the people to fund our operations. This nation got fine enough for 124 years before the Constitution was amended to allow for an income tax. If government lives within its means there is absolutely no reason to ask the people to fund it.
As President I will hold the Bill of Rights as sacred and ensure that the rights of each and every American are protected. I will begin by dismantling the Department of Homeland Security and revoking every piece of legislation passed to fight the war on terror which in some fashion infringes upon an unalienable right of the people. I will reign in the Transportation Security Administration, (TSA), and find other ways of ensuring the public’s safety than by infringing upon their 4th Amendment right to be secure in their persons and property.
As President I will begin dismantling this behemoth that is the federal government by abolishing the following Cabinet Posts and their associated agencies; the Secretary of Education, Department of Labor, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Energy, and the Environmental Protection Agencies. These are all areas that are best managed by the individual states, and not the federal government.
I will also recall our ambassador to the United Nations and give the member nations 30 days to recall their respective ambassadors before I schedule the UN building to be demolished.
I will also drastically cut back our military presence overseas unless the nations where we have military installations formally request a U.S. military presence. If that be the case then that nation will be responsible for paying the entire cost to sustain that installation, including the pay and benefits of each and every U.S. serviceman assigned to that installation. If not, that nation can fend for itself. It is not our place to police and defend the world. With that being said, if a rogue nation decides to attack the U.S. we will retaliate with the full force of our might…but we will not invade and occupy a sovereign nation so that military contractors such as Halliburtan can make a fortune off the misfortune of war.
I will revoke the charter of the Federal Reserve Bank and give the power to coin our nation’s currency back to Congress where it belongs. The treasury department is fully capable of printing all the money required to sustain our economy without America having to be enslaved to a cartel of globalist bankers who profit for our nation’s debt.
And finally, I will enact strict trade laws which grant no benefits to any nation, or company, which produces goods outside the border of the United States, For every item we import to America, one item will be exported to that country which is manufactured in America, or all trade with that nation will grind to a halt. We will rebuild America as a manufacturing force to be reckoned with.
These are my promises to you as president. If I fail to uphold even one of them, I will not seek re-election. I swear this under penalty of perjury, and may God and the American people hold me accountable.
That is the speech that Mitt Romney MUST give before I will vote for him. Otherwise he can take his chances without me. And for you, the faithful republicans who nagged at me to support him, your declaration is much simpler. I would ask you to read and sign the following:
I _______________________, do hereby swear that I have investigated the candidate I support, to include their past voting record and stances on the issues. I have not based my decision strictly upon party loyalty, or that my candidate is the best chance to defeat the current incumbent.
I have also read the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and understand that these documents are sacredly obligatory upon the government, limiting their authority and power. I have applied them as a litmus test to the candidate I support and believe that said candidate will best uphold the principles contained in those documents.
If, it is proven later, that the candidate I vote for fails to uphold the Constitution, or fails to uphold any of his campaign promises I, __________________, will rip my heart out of my chest and eat it.
There, that’s all you have to do to get me to vote for Mitt Romney. That wasn’t that hard, was it?
