Presumably there's nothing stopping people from signing it, then ignoring it completely?
And let us pray that come it may (As come it will for a' that)

@Bat: Not really, but as someone else mentioned earlier this sets a bad precedent. I'm glad someone in the GOP realized what a retarded idea this is.
If I were to write some of the strange things that come under my eyes they would not be believed.

I'm rather surprised, but proud. I have a poor definition of politicians in general so I'm kinda impressed they could rub together their brain cells fast enough to realize at least this mistake.

Let's get a real pirate in office.
Support your local Pirate Party, then. ;)

The Governor is a moderate Republican on most fronts anyway. It's the Attorney General who is probably sitting in his dark tower, lit from beneath by flickering flames, and laughing maniacally at the loyalty oath requirement.

Freedom of speech includes the freedom for other people to call you out on your bullshit.

If he is, he's also an evil genius of the highest degree.

But probably he's exactly what he seems like.

I might just go vote in the primary, sign this loyalty oath, and then break it just for fun in the main election.

These kinds of idiotic pledges are becoming a style of some sort to the Republicans. We've seen them group together and pledge to do certain things that a President would not even be capable of doing. In addition to the pledge as one becomes president, they would be working to add in all these pledges.

It is foolhardy and shows how loose their grips on reality can be.

At the risk of a derail, it's not like Democrats are particularly lacking for attempts to stomp out non-Groupthink opinions in their primaries. tongue

That's not, however, to say I think the subject of this thread was all that bright an idea, because it's not.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
