Freedom from Pledges
Have to admit I heard a valid point from Bill Mahr the other night.
Politicians who sign pledges are sacrificing the very freedom they tout as the foundation of this country. Thus, the pledge that Grover Norquist and his gang have used to tie the hands of GOP candidates in Congress over taxes has actually stripped them of their freedom to vote their consciences or adapt to each and every unique situation.
Pledges are for wimps who are afraid to stand on their own.
