Political Candidate Contract with the Citizens of the United States
Petition Background (Preamble):
Our forefathers established this country with a Constitution and Bill of Rights that are supposed to provide us with fundamental rights. Every candidate for political office, every elected official, and every government employee should be willing to commit in writing to always defend our fundamental rights.
This is what this petition provides. GRIP, the Government Reform & Integrity Platform, is a non-partisan coalition of organizations and people who simply seek honesty and our fundamental rights from government. This all that we stand for, and getting signatures on this petition is our mission.
Everyone should be willing to sign this petition, but dishonest candidates and government officials will be unwilling to sign because the contract provides that they may be removed from office if they violate the petition contract.
GRIP will ask every American voter to vote only for candidates who sign this Contract. Platform First - Party Second. Let's vote only for people who say they will be honest and remain accountable - regardless of party. Dishonesty is the fundamental problem with government today. This Contract can make a difference.
WHEREAS, I recognize that the citizens of the United States of America expect me to be honest and honor the Constitution and the Bill of Rights;
NOW THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration:
I hereby promise that I will be honest in everything that I say and do while in any position with any government authority in the United States.
I promise to always tell the truth while performing my duties.
I promise to honor and defend the Constitution at all times and in all situations.
I promise to honor and defend the Bill of Rights at all times and in all situations.
I promise to bring honor and integrity to everything I do in my capacity as a Public Servant, and to never lose sight of the fact that my duty while serving in government is service to my country and its people by honoring and fulfilling the intent of our founders in their drafting of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution of the United States.
I will voluntarily remove myself from office if I ever violate this promise.
If a complaint is made against me and any jury finds that I have violated this Contract, I will immediately resign my position, and I will agree to never seek employment or any elected position with any government authority at the national, state, county, or local level.
