Grover Norquist

Vote out all signers of the Norquist pledge

    1. Petition by

      Independence, OH

The lobbyist Grover Norquist must be stopped. He has effectively destroyed any chance of a bipartisan solution to our nation’s deficit problem. In doing so, he and the signers of his pledge have amplified everything that is wrong with Washington. However you politically define yourself, you should be angered that our legislative branch is being manipulated by one person. You may agree with this one issue of not raising taxes, but his action raises a serious concern for our future. To protect his interest he has threatened each signer with a promise to end their career if they go against this pledge. He has boasted that Bush senior lost his bid for his second term presidency because he crossed Norquist. Given the recent admissions of Jack Abramoff and the collapse of the super committee, the strangle-hold on Washington by the lobbyists has really become evident. This influence has enriched the few and disenfranchised the masses. There are no checks and balances to this system. Today this system may favor your political beliefs, but tomorrow it may not. By allowing this to go unchecked we all risk a grim future that isnt decided at the ballot boxes, but decided by the man with the most money. If you want to see our political system change directions and have a chance at being for the people again please sign this petition and let Washington know that we won’t continue to tolerate these games.

      What is wrong with our elected officials that they would surrender their constitutional rights to Grover Norquist?
