What is the Congressional Pledge?
When members of the United States Congress are sworn into office they raise their hand and swear an oath to “defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic.” Unfortunately that seems to be a hollow promise for many members of Congress. The Rally for Freedom is an opportunity for Gold Star Families to stand against socialism. The Congressional Pledge and Promise is the statement they are asking members of Congress to sign to reaffirm their pledge and stand firm in defending the Constitution against any threats of socialism in our government. The pledge states:
In recognition of the tremendous sacrifices made throughout our nation’s history, and in honor of America’s Gold Star families who’ve paid the ultimate price for freedom, I affirm my oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic” and pledge to maintain and promote its standard of liberty for ourselves and our posterity. I further pledge and promise that I will stand firm in the fight to secure our Representative Republic and will do everything in my power to make sure America never becomes a Socialist country.
In all honesty, any member of Congress that feels they cannot sign this pledge, should not be serving in Congress! Our vote can ensure that on Election Day!
You can Download the Pledge and a letter to send to your own member of Congress and ask them to sign. Please email us and let us know when they sign and we will add their names to the list on our website so America can see who is standing firm for freedom and the Constitution. Please scan and email us a copy of the pledge with their signature. We’d like to know if they refuse to sign as well.
