United States Congressional Leadership: Grant US Congress Authority to Withdraw from Grover Norquist's Tax Pledge

      Washington, DC

Here in America, we pledge allegiance to the United States of America, not to an individual or his political organization.

There is no mention of an allegiance to Grover Norquist and his political organization in the Constitution.

In no way does Grover Norquist, or his political organization, represent the will of the people of the United States.  The 2012 election represents the will of the people and the mandate is clear:  America supports President Obama’s policies and we want Congress to work together with the President rather than obstructing progress and dabbling in the political folly of Grover Norquist and his political organization.

The US continues to suffer economic difficulties stemming from the Republican majority’s inability to stand in allegiance with the people of United States of America. The residents of the United States suffer from blatant abuses of their rights by not having true representation by their elected officials. Given that the Representatives in Congress are duly mandated by the United States Constitution to represent the people and that our government is governed by people and for the people, and nowhere does it mention bowing to Grover Norquist and his political organization, it is practically feasible for the Congressional Republicans to withdraw from their tax pledge to Mr. Norquist, and to do so would protect citizens from tyranny and re-secure their rights to a representative government.

Sincerely,

      In the Kingdom of Heaven, they neither make nor adhere to tax pledges, nor does usury give "to each according to greed" and take "from each according to vulnerability."

      Grover should have no control over our country our Government or anything that has to do with it. His power is gone,

      This pledge, and those who insist on thoughtlessly signing it, are holding up rational thinking and planning in Congress. I think we should insist that, in signing such an outrageous document, Congressional members are also agreeing not to accept any payraises, to end "junkets," and to refuse all offers of gifts from lobbyists. Congress should try the austerity that some members want the American public to live with. They are so out of touch with the real world! And, by the way, who IS Grover Norquist anyway? Who gave him the power?

      Grover is a cancer. Grover is a bully. Grover should be put in prison for crimes against humanity.

      The government is BY the people, FOR the people...meaning ALL of us, not just a select few with ulterior motives.
