How important do you think it is for our next president to take a pledge committing to defend the Constitution if he or she is elected to our nation's highest office? We think it is extremely important. That is why we have asked the presidential candidates to do exactly that.
On August 15, we mailed and faxed a letter to all of the major presidential candidates, asking them to sign the simple and straightforward American Freedom Pledge (which you can see at www.americanfreedomcampaign.org). This short pledge concludes with, "I pledge to fight to protect and defend the Constitution from assault by any President."
As of October 4, only eight candidates -- all Democrats -- had either signed the American Freedom Pledge or had provided the American Freedom Campaign with a statement expressing strong support for defending the Constitution.
If you agree that every candidate should sign this pledge, please fill in the information below and send a quick e-mail to all of the campaigns.
