These Republican pledges sound more like a way to start chipping away at constitutional rights they don't like. Like free speech and equality.

Mitt sounds like the best candidate GOP has so far. As for the ones who "sign pledges" they should review a time in history of The People's Temple in the country of Guyana .

These people are the ones our founding fathers feared would come and over throw our government. Hence USA constitution!

So I would like to take a poll on how many average Americans sign written pledges for 2 years (or more)... either to loose weight, only spend a certain amount per month, change the way they eat, or whatever... And of those who do, how many actually stick to to that pledge?? I have a hard time believing any one could stand by one for 2 years... So why should we expect our elected officials to stick with it?? They act like this is something people do everyday whereas pledges are only as good as the paper they're written on.
