Presumably there's nothing stopping people from signing it, then ignoring it completely?
To be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others
Street Writing Man@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.

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.

Sidequest ProliferatorThe 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.
Pronounced YAK-you-lussIs he a Democrat, then?
Freedom of speech includes the freedom for other people to call you out on your bullshit.

BFS EnthusiastI 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.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
