1. Which of these two incompatible oaths do they take more seriously?
Their oath to "Protect and Defend the Constitution of the United States" as a public official?

or

Their oath to an unelected fascist plutocrat?

2. I found mine.
CA-24 Elton Gallegly (R)

That's quite a list of people who have no minds of their own, and who apparently forgot that they took a different oath when they were sworn in as members of the US Congress. For someone as ignorant as Norquist who appears to be lacking in so many areas to have so much power over our government, suggests to me that something badly needs to be done about this kind of thing.

But there is ONE man, check NE, who has had enough http://journals.democraticunderground.com/sabrina%201/2... Rep. Fortenberry made this statement recently regarding Grover's pledge:

In answer to one question, the 1st District Republican Congressman revealed he informed Grover Norquist and his anti-tax organization he no longer is committed to that organizations pledge to oppose any form of tax increases.I did sign that pledge when I was first running for the House in 2004, Fortenberry said. I no longer sign any pledges.

A pledge restrains your ability to think creatively, he said, noting Norquist attempts to interpret and define what is considered a tax increase.I informed the organization I dont consider (the earlier pledge) binding, Fortenberry said. I dont care to be associated with it. Its too constraining.


I wonder if others will follow, like put their country first for a change?
